Serious Zeus question.

49 replies 651 views Edited Jan 11, 2013

So, did they buff the lightning vortex?  Because this goddamn spell is nigh inescapable...vaccuum effect seems to  be stronger, and it's like an instant 50% damage thing now... really, really ridiculous.  

 

I'm sick of people spamming 50% damage magic.  It's getting out of hand.   The players who know how to abuse just abuse and abuse and abuse.  One guy sat at bottom fountain as Zeus and would trap people in the spike trap and then fling them in with L1 square of the glad hammer... then knock people off the map with L1 + triangle and R1... then if any good players came by SPAM DAT MAGIC BABY.  

 

Zeus should have roughly the same damage in magic as Ares...just a bit more with more chances to get it really and being just as avoidable as Ares magic.  

 

As it stands, it's ridiculous.  You can have melee proficient Zeus characters who build up MP only to lay down the law when crap hits the fan.  It's ridiculous...they put up a huge fight melee wise against Ares then "oh hey I'm just going to use this magic attack 3 times in a row if that's ok with you."

I've been getting hit with vortex less and have seen the lightning mine way more and it's annoying as hell

Does that lightning mine stiffle people? (silence) because every single time I've gotten hit with that thing today, I've been silenced too...

Zeus is just getting more OP by the hour...

IDK about the silence. I'm too infuriated every time I get hit with it to notice.

lawlz its amazing how many people dont learn after they get knocked into the spike trap the first time. But to answer your question,  no they have not buffed the zeus magic. I've been playing all day so ive ran into many zeus players and ive been able to dodge out of the vortex spam most of the time, you just gotta play a little smarter.

Other than avoiding it you can try switchin one piece of your armour to elemental resist and just get used to dodging and parrying because it does work trust me i constantly switch between ares and zeus it works bro it truly does i been playin for awhile and noticed alotta complaints about zeus playes because they use their powers alot but thats why zeus is awesome because of the power boost see ehat im saying? Otherwise if you can make a fairly balanced ares warrior with lets say an ares warrior with one piece of amour wit e defense u can beat him down with aattack power it you can attack once wit fast attack then hit with hold circle attack his health is over half gone plus you got  l1 square or triangle plus grapple is he runs you can own and turn the tide but i gotta say ares fighters must be more tactical than zeus fighters Smiley Happy the only balance is skill just learn the moves of each god warrior then u r setSmiley Happy

Gold is right and the Zeus users have increased as well. The spamming is starting to get to that point but I guess that is what that champion is about so I won't complain.

To answer the question - no it wasn't buffed. People are just reaching the required level to max the spell again.
