Xianjiu’s plat skill when it activates, only he has the buff indicator, not his allies, which I assume means only he gets the buff, Carabina’s plat skill when activated give her allies the buff indicator for her plat skill.

Just an observation…

How do people like Spewage? I so rarely see people use him. I also wasn’t drawn to him due to his character design because I thought he seemed goofy.

He has the ability to increase his health to ridiculous amounts, and now he can deal loads of damage. He also has a really fast ability recharge rate so he can be persistent.

Xianju is hero for AI teams in Extreme only. From player’s side is #1 of most useless characters as for me. His only practical usage it’s cheap damage buff for Ronin. And even for this existing much more better alternatives like Hivemind or Striker. Current buff don’t change nothing.

@Robert_Pronk , mind telling him how he’s actually a good hero.

Current buff makes him a crit monster. With all clones up he can deal ridiculous damage. And they also live to keep that boost up. He deals genuine damage and absurd crit damage.

He is died on first seconds, lol. This is another glass tank like Callidius, Bucket, Savage, etc. Even someone midline like Holloway have better survivebility and armor stats.

Okay? But his damage is higher. All characters are swiftly balanced out from their health to their damage or utility

Let’s not lie to ourselves, not all characters are balanced. He might be fun to play once in a while, but in no way is he equal to the top heroes.
