Analysis

 

If warp strike works on reinforcements, it will make a great escape tool. In effect, it can be used to warp to wherever enemy creeps are. Only getting Warp Strike I isn't a bad idea. It will let you teleport 15 yards while spending only one point. Warp Strike IV is insane, since it allows you to warp 25 yards.

 

Warp Area II is really great. It allows you to go invincible for 3.2 seconds.


Shadow Swap has a low mana cost relative to his other abilities.


I'm not sold on spine attack.

I'm not sure how good the passive abilities are.

I could see Spine Attack as being useful for that's last hit either when Warp Strike is on cool down, or when it's too dangerous to Warp Strike to the target.

If Warp Strike works on reinforcements, you can Shadow Swap into enemy territory then Warp Strike back near to where you were before, reducing the duration of exposure.

With a few mana items and if warp can be used to both get in and escape out of gangs.... Da just may knock QoT into second place and become my favorite.

All three unique skills look kind of crappy on paper, I wonder how they will play out.  Shadow swap should be hilariously fun.

I already see what i'm gonna take;

max Warp, max Spine, 2 points in Shadow Swap, 2 points in Warp Area, MAX Dodge&Speed. All in all 20 points.

I see Precision is not made as i was predicting, and it's made very weak actually.  40% chance for x1.5 dam means just 1200 dmg in 10 hits if base dmg 100.  4 skill points for only 200 (20%) more damage!? Not worth it imo, no way i'll spend 4 points for that. (One point in Bestial Wrath gives +25% more dmg.)

Warp area looks SO GOOD!!, but lvl 15 (Forceful blows) knocking smaller units is really not worth it. You are not in danger by smaller units at lvl 15 (and your teammates will certainly have some aoe dmg to take care of them), but real problem then are Giants and Catas, and you can't knock them out. (that is also the reason why i dont like much the Oak's Soul Frenzy; knocking smaller units just steal him easy health/mana from DJ. I think it would be better if Yetis have that kind of ability(and extra dmg in process too).

Shadow swap III only gives +5 range. i can easily leave that for last point in Spine/Assassin's speed.

I can already think of the "ZOMG NERF DEMON ASSASIN NOW!!" that will be in the forums when people realise how good he is.

People have whined a lot about erebus bat swarm, and the DA has 3 warp abilites.

Get ready for "DA is OP" posts soon.

From my experience Warp Area only hit a enemy once. So if it's against 1 person or grunts over 500 it look cool but they don't die till you reach level 15. 

Also while the Demon Assasin has alot of warp abilities none of them let you teleport away. He's great for Ganking but his low hit points can get you in trouble espically against Sedna

Hush dont jinx it, and Le isn't a warping demigod he is a transformer. Let's not forget all the self healing, minions, and speed that LE has that Da doesn't.

What speed??? Erebus has no speed skills. DA on the other hand can increase his speed with 3 skills by 15%.

Erebus has 6.3 Base speed and can only increase it by items or favor (swift anklet).

I never said anything about a speed skill, he can easly become the fastest demigod in the game.

DA Evade/Crit build is absolutly sick. 40% dodge, 1500 skill every 7s. It's insane. I love it.

Is there a point in this?

Any demigod can be extremely fast with speed items + swift anklet as favor. just the anklet favor item + boots of speed is a 25% more speed for ANY demogod. Erebus has no skills for speed, thus he is not really faster then other demigods.

What is your point?

rook!

My point being Da doesn't have what LE has and can't do what LE can, so their shouldnt really be a reason to nerf him. Than aain we haven't played him in game yet

Yes we all need to test him to see how balanced he is (or isnt). I didnt say he is OP i just said that many people will complain that he is OP, just as they complained about Erebus in the past.

Until everyone learns to play the DA, and then the whining will be over.

Just a prediction.
