    Smile Let's talk about Ares, I think he's balanced

    Sooooo Hello there!
    I have a diamond Ares, and I can't say he's OP.
    I'm going to explain my opinion why he isn't OP. If you agree, or disagree, write below c;
    Let's start with his first skill- the shackles:
    Deals a fair amount of damage BUT only by a skilled player that knows how to land the three chains. And the target can just do some jukes to avoid the other 2 chains.
    Even if he hits with the 3 chains+fire, it can melt half of your HP, and then? nothing. The enemy will just walk away.
    If you have an ally close then you can kill, but that can be with every other guardian.
    Second skill: Bolster defences
    A nice skill, balanced, gives a few defences.
    Third skill- searing flesh
    A weak skill that can barely do even a wave clear (and can't help a lot), unlike Athena who can with the soldiers, Khepri or Xing, etc.
    Ult- No escape:
    That's one of the best skills in arena, a bit less in Conquest.
    Can be easily countered by Beads, Magi's Blessing, Aegis, Using some ults (some give CC immunity)
    And the blink has a long CD, so you'll have to do once with a blink and once without (when u see an Ares coming, Use [VVVX]Spread out! and he will most likely ult a person or two.

    Other things:
    Unlike Xing's ult, the Ares's ult is way better, but, ares doesn't have mobility at all. If you engage in combat, you can't escape but walking, and if you blink into the enemies and about to ult but got silenced (Most likely nox) and driven into the corner of a strong enemy team, you'll just die.
    Unlike Xing Tian, who can just escpae with his third skill (If not silenced)

    So, what's your opinion?
    Hope you had fun reading this XD

    Kumba has an awesome ult IMO.
    Low CD, fair amount of damage, and moving out of position and battle

    Ares is balanced around the early game , no need to crunch any numbers if you did not make it ahead you are dead weight to be carried by your team because even as a Beads Burner you will most likely dying in your ult if ur not ahead enough.

    If Ares didn't have that bad early game he'd be so broke.

    I still don't understand how it's ok for chains to do 900 damage when he is full tank.

    Forcing a whole team buy, Magi, Beads, Aegis, and forcing you to use your immunity spell/ult is not op at all. Right?

    You don't buy them all.
    You can go only for beads if you play Conquest (cuz u dont see him a lot) and doing so can just repel a whole enemy.
    That makes 4 vs 5.
    While Athena is much better.

    yeah, but in all other modes, you have to buy them all, still he will kill you somehow, cause only Aegis stops the damage done by ult.

    PS: conquest, he does his damage by shackles.

    PSS: Athena is just too stronk for ya, all guardians are sadly cept 2.

    Hades is kinda broken. He should only be able to heal from three targets not everything he hits. All other heals like that only use three targets.
    Mastery X Ravana

    Thanatos is bae

    Yeah I know What the tier lists and pros say.

    Too bad I don't care.

    You can run but you can't outrun Death!!!
