Is the ‘hook shot’ the powder blast?

I vaguely remember there is an assumption related to the numbers in the buffs. They coincide with t e hero being maxed (max plat or ruby) or some combination (max lvl, skills and ruby+0)

Will someone clarify, please?

Hey there! Yes, the stats are as always, for a maxed-out hero.

Hook shot is the shot, similar to keel, that fires out and roots the targeted enemy and some enemies nearby the target

Nice puffs. Can we give a puff or a new skin to Wesson too? Just want more options to combat Verrill. Thanks

Beck is the only buff i see that is desperately needed. Wish she was at the stats before HH nerfed her into a shell of her former self.
Bring the turkey queen back to her former glory!! Haha

While were at it doggface needs a massive skin. That OG has earned some love for being in the forgotten pile for so long.

A buff and Mythic Skin wouldn’t hurt Sapphyr either… :smirk:

But Clyde is going to need one first…

if clyde does get a mythic, maybe that will help boost him to be on level with Sand Ruby. But it doesnt necessarily mean he will be worth it. :smirk:

How come Sapphyr need a buff? She is already darned OP

There must be a reason to puff or give new skin to a hero. Some heroes will not be used no matter what. Sadly, Clyde is one of them. :rofl:

He would actually probably get used a lot more if he got buffed, he has an amazing platinum and has many uses in a crit team. However his low stats hold him back. Really all he needs is a stat boost and a crit chance skin

Now we have Homerun. Cannot see why we need to upgrade Clyde, as these two are very similar in a way.
The other thing is that a ruby Wesson can kill a ruby Verrill with two more bars easily before verrill’s silver skill kicks in. I doubt Clyde can achieve that (don’t have a ruby Clyde, so I cannot test this myself)

Clyde can get some high damage nasty crits with his platnium ability, but only if you know how to aim. Even then there are some areas he could use stat boosts. And a skin with a crit chance :)))

Man, of course I know how to aim, and let’s not go down the route comparing who has the bigger stick. Just answer two questions:

  1. Do you really think Clyde will be better than Homerun, even after the putative upgrade?
  2. Have you ever killed a verrill with Clyde before?
    Remind you, to kill verrill, you have to rely on fast basic damages or stunning. Otherwise he will kill you first!

I lost count of the amount of verrils I killed with Clyde :))),
Every hero can be compared to others, such as Clyde to Homerun, but they have their own strengths and weaknesses. Clyde may not have the highest crit chance compared to Homerun but he does have the ability to deal higher damage crits. To be considered better than one another we would first need to see how said buffed Clyde would be.

Imo a buffed Clyde could be just as lethal as homerun

It’s good to know a ruby Clyde can kill ruby verrill. I don’t have one and always feel he is too fragile and a bit slow. So never thought Clyde can win 1v1 against Verrill unless your opponent is silly. But even if Clyde is that good, we have homerun in the same category, so the effort should be put into a different hero as far as puffing concerns.
Having said that, the bigger issue is not verrill but voltage. Although my voltage is maxed, I would like her stunning charge to be delayed for couple of seconds. Otherwise everyone will have to run the similar teams in pvp.
Although tactician Is great for missions, allowing that in pvp, especially for voltage’s stunning, is a mistake

I will speak for Ben and say that Clyde’s crits, however not as often, do a much bigger punch. Talking about near double potential. Although Homerun is more straightforward with his crit, while Clyde has to actively build up. Clyde ‘can’ dish higher damage but Homerun is better on the short term
