The best Hades I've seen utilize his "sneak attack" abilities BEAUTIFULLY...Relig of Agility prevent being juggled with launches, Hades Helm makes sneak attacks possible and the Lance of Hades is probably his best weapon for its ability to hide as well.
Hades is great but he's NOT Ares so shouldn't be played like him.
People just don't know how to make it effective but he is the best overall (Magic and physical Offensive wise) while maintaining a superb defense.
Shame Hades was nerfed on those things and not the thing that really matters
That Item that makes you in a cloud like ball is the most stupid power I ever encountered in the game, I have to wait for it to end while my enemy gets some health, super boring, nerf that...
...so you guys are really gonna sit and argue whether Hades deserves these nerfs while Zeus regens magic at 9 points per second and Poseidon has near endless health?
You're implying Hades shouldn't get 50hp back after successfully killing an opponent but these 2 classes receive resources like health and magic while fighting/losing?
Get out of of here, you can't be serious. Hades is ok but noticeably the least godlike of any class. That in and of itself shows he was over nerfed. He's not "destroyed" as the OP put it but clearly he has fewer advantages than other gods
I hear you man, I'm not saying that I like what they did to Hades; he was my first allegiance and it did take me some time to get used to him again after coming back to him after the 1.04 update. What I meant was I can see why they changed what they changed... I tried to rationalize the changes... helped me cope better I suppose lol (I was a bit annoyed at the spear changes since I used that wep predominantly).
I've gotten him to lvl 40 and am now working on the other allegiances to get a better feel for how everyone changed. My initial impression was that the changes to Hades were a bit too much considering the benefits the other classes have received, but I want to get the other allegiances up to 40 before I make a final assessment.
I agree though; Hades is not as powerful as he was before... but is still decent. Like I said ppl are going to complain unfortunately... it can't be helped. There's at least one "____ allegiance is OP! Nerf them!" thread for each god on this forum. When those complaints accumulate, they'll take a closer look and future changes are inevitable (especially at the other gods since Hades was affected the most by this patch) .
Hades rocks--- u guys r crazy :-)... I understand the frustration--- ur on the pipe though if you think its not coming to all of us eventually :-)
Indeed, no god will be immune from nerfs. It's only a matter of time until the rest undergo changes as well.
