    Is Medusa not the most OP Hunter?

    I've tried every hunter and love Anhurs kit the most however, Medusa is just ridiculous.

    Root, Stun, dot damage, wave clear, escape and power.

    I constantly do so much better and kills are easiest with Dusa compared to say Rama.

    What are your thoughts?
    HirezAmanda is ridiculous.

    Really, how is any other hunter viable when she's out there?

    She has to get much closer to do any real damage compared to most other hunters.

    You can easily turn around before the petrify hits to avoid the stun.

    If she uses Lacerate offensively, she's leaving herself WIDE open to getting blown to kingdom come.

    She tends to fall off late game against better boxers (Rama, Hou Yi, Xbalanque, I'd daresay even Artemis)

    She's more of a teamfight/early game bully hunter akin to Neith or Chiron.

    Strong? Yes.

    Overpowered? Lord no.

    Medusa is the worst hunter in the game imo. She has no teamfight presence outside of a ridiculously telegraphed ult, her only means of escape has to be used as an initiate a lot of the time, her steroid is awful and her attack speed is poop.

    -She doesn't have to get close.

    -Her ult is weird in that sometimes you get hit by it when turned around because the servers didn't recognize the turn fast enough.

    Yammyn, the mid for what was Epsilon would Medusa ult a wall as he went around a corner and turn on you at the last possible moment.

    Her late game damage is still the same absurd hunter damage. She also has anti healing going for her, so she won't be easy to outbox.

    All this to say she is among the most balanced hunters.

    Medusa is a strong ability based Hunter. And this meta and common build heavily favours hunters like that.

    Her early and mid game is strong with a powerful wave clear and a good dot ability to poke early and force potions/early backs.

    However she falls off late game when full builds are in play to many hunters who simply out box her due to pure auto damage and/or steroids. In fact by end game she's usually a simple Ult bot (a powerful one though) trying to set up multiple kills for the jungler and/or burst Mage on the team.

    She is strong, but lacks. Her escape is easily countered by a good team and is nearly useless in a real team fight. Her Ult while powerful is easily negated by players with good reflexes and who know her tells. And her aoe wave clear while still strong simply isn't the end all of power when the game gets down to it.

    All in all she's a strong Hunter with potentional and can snowball in the early and mid game against opponents unwilling or unable to punish her escape and Ult. Late game however she is less than stellar and relies on helping set up the kills a lot of the time with a classic build.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm just not seeing the negativity. I run fatalis with no pen and USUALLY own everyone. For people with a lot of physical D, throw in bane and you got them too.

    Against good players, the ult requires setup but can be used when going around corners.

    Interesting replies though.

    And her clear is of the best in game of any God. I just had over 100k minion damage in joust.

    Her clear is average at best. Other gods are pretty much the same.
    Note to self, bring home bones of enemies for Cerberus to chew upon.

    Her ult is op because it benefits from the server sucking.

    You can turn around, facing the complete opposite way, boom, stone.

    Aside from her ult...

    She is a solid hunter.

    Good clear

    Good steroid that remains until used.

    Has escape.

    Amazing passive that let's you out box other gods, especially with Fatalis.
