    She's strong, but wouldn't say she's OP. Her steroid is decent, the waveclear is good and you can poke the enemy with it (I even got kills with it, by using on a enemy, only to get it spread to his teammate), her 3 is a good offensive ability, but for escape iit's not that good. People can blocck it so easily. Her ult is a great teamfight ult, but you have to make it unpredictrable to be effective.

    She''s strong in early and mid game, but she falls off a bit and can't box with hunters like Apollo, Rama or Hou Yi. She also needs an agressive support to bully the oher duo (expect Ymir and Cabrakan, because their walls block the ult. So much fail I had because Ymir fall blocked he ult.).

    She was OP at release, no deny, but that was a long time. She's balanced now and has a solid place among the hunters.
    Genie of the Forum!

    Half human though and free, so I only have semi-phenomenal, nearly cosmic power, but still magical nonetheless

    Nu Wa and Medusa (or as I call them, snake ladies) are love and life <3

    As a recent Medusa X I can say Medusa is powerful, but not really overpowered.

    Her 1 is really nice, The extra steroid helps.

    Her 2 is a decent clear but Far from the best clear, Her acid spray does 90/135/180/225/270 (+70% scaling) is kinda mid tier clear compared to Anhur's impale 90/155/220/285/350 (+80% scaling) or Neith's Spirit arrow that does 90/155/220/285/350 (+90% scaling).
    Acid spray is good but the only thing that it has going for it is the cone that makes it a pretty good poking ability, Other then that the ability nothing special.

    Lacerate's Root is great and all, but if a Medusa uses it to root someone, Shes a sitting duck and if Petrify is down, She will most likely be dead.
    The healing reduction won't help much against healers because it won't really make a difference till end game, its base 10% reduction and if you level the dash over Acid spray or Viper shot, You are playing Medusa wrong.

    Petrify hits like a truck if You get a really get setup or if You ult out of a corner, Otherwise if an enemy gets stunned by it server issues aside, Its 100% their fault.

    Shes a good ability based hunter, but definitely not the best one.

    If they revert unneccesary anhur and rama buffs and actually nerf the dumb ones like hou yi and neith she'd be seen more as she's pretty much balanced, but you don't win by picking balanced gods, you pick broken ones if you want to win.
    Tastes like purple.

    Medusa is clearly a good god, you have to her not tried her properly or be naive not to see that. But she's not OP either. As others have stated she has quite a few limitations just like most hunters.

    Yeah i agree with most of the previous comments she's right in the middle somewhere, her ults pretty bad unless u can catch someone off guard or if u combo with someone like athena or hun batz. her 2s good poke and her steroid is ok. One of the things i like to do is lacerate then use sunder, u'd be surprised how easy it is to melt someone assuming u can afford the relic slot and u can get away after without your escape.

    Interesting replies though.
    Not to doubt your skills, but something is wrong with your opposition if you are getting away with no pen builds; it's nothing to do with Medusa in particular unless these same people are constantly frozen by your ult as well.

    Hook me up with these people who fail to build any defenses and cannot dodge the next time I need a quick win.

    I have gone against people that build D. Usually it's only BOV which only takes a few more hits. Only time I have trouble is when someone builds two or three physical D. In that case, he has no damage and I eat the squishies alive.

    I've maintained a 2.5 KD with her and run by myself. Admittedly, I have more difficulty when going against a pre-made when I'm with non-mic'd randoms.

    She's very easy to counter. Positioning correctly can make it impossible for her to dash away and looking away from her during Petrified cuts the damage it does in half and prevents a stun.

    But she is balanced and well designed.
