Do you seriously think I go ice tb without knowing how to deep freeze ? Really ?
* Silence: Ok.
So anything I spend just to be able to eventually silence you (and not both, of course, will have to choose) will not go to fund other items you do NOT need.
Both Sed and Ereb have stuns / minions / low death ratio (due to heal on one part, mist on the other, just to evade, + priests on support) damage higher than the tb icy rain on a single spell (we have to cast two spells to stun AND damage, where you both need only one).
Also, if we go for deep freeze first, we cannot enjoy the 2x or 3x combo getting from deep freeze, and if we do cast deep freeze first, we do far less dps.
* Investing in other strategies: You know as well as i do that dps isnt really the problem vs a Sedna. I noticed in the game how she didnt invest (or nearly not) in a hp / armor item, wherehas you (as erebus) were buffing it like a mad. Result ? 2 unkillables.
What can we seriously do, with a potential 800 + 500 combo from me (icy rain + 2x combo at the time) and a 800 snipe from reg, when you already have 5000+ hp at level 11 with sedna backing up to heal ? And that's ONLY on one player.
A game balance is about requiring the same amount of efforts from each character with equal skill to potentially deliver a victory.
Those conditions are CLEARLY not met.
And to go on with Frogboy's advice, about the spread stats. Every good or high level sedna / erebus i have met in game simply obliterated the other team, no matter the level of skill in the opposite team.
Want one of the funniest combo ? Try 2 expert sednas. Totally enjoyable.
