I really can't see a good reason for not giving him active abilities. You guys act (without even knowing numbers) that the Heavy hitting demigod will be so strong that he would be overpowered.

You never come in here with in game proof of similar situations, or any other form of proof we can use as any kind of evidence toward leaving him alone or buffing him. You can drop in and state your opinion and that is all well and nice, but until you can prove to me that you opinion is worth anything, I will not be swayed by it. You guys also seem to forget that this guy gets passive abilities to offset his lack of burst.
Auto-attack damage becomes a such huge thing at the end game that even Rook hardly uses hammer slam for the loss of auto-attack DPS. This is also because Rook is a early-mid game demigod that usually only fares as decent in the end game unless he has artifacts, when you have artifacts it doesn't matter which Demigod you are, you will destroy peeps.
UB style auto-attack damage is complimented in his builds (Bestial Wrath (LOL), Diseased Claws, Inner Beast). Most people complain about the amount of damage a UB can do with just Ooze much less Spit and Ooze combined. Now imagine how OP a UB would be that could take his 1s cast Spit and turn it into full on auto-attack damage (the chain weapon for this guy) at range while it slows you. I know diseased claws does this in melee, but once he spits on you he loses that if you are the same movement speed or if you are slightly faster, this guy will not. You start running and he casts 1s chain and keeps you at his speed til he decides to disengage.
The UB situation is not considered OP to me, because it has no burst. Sure you can get hit by Ooze, spit and foul grasp all at once, but thats 3 separate abilities ticking on you, not one single nuke and it just cost him a pretty decent amount of mana that he probably cant do it again if you live through it. You know damn well whether or not you will live or die because UB can't just up and burst you down with a OMGWTFBBQPWNED ability that finishes you for that last 1k life you had.
