    Nerf Bancrofts

    I played a joust game against a hades with boots, warlocks, and bancrofts and as soon as he bought the bancrofts he actually 2 shotting me with his 1 and 3. I was also a level higher than him with a complete advantage. I dont know if it is hades is broken or bancrofts is broken.

    Perhaps you were standing close to your minions.. and he had low health, then its normal.
    But i think he can do just that with a pen boots + those two items, its normal.
    And no dont nerf hades, he is fine!

    Almost every time he did it was under my tower with no minions and I was full health. It was like a mage wasn't afraid of the tower

    Well in a way, Hades is still a bruiser-mage, his base stats are higher than typical Mages.

    Didn't we go through like six patches buffing Bancrofts so that people would actually start using it and now that they do we should nerf it?

    Plus nerfing other lifesteal items for Bancroft to be somehow close to them.

    Then imagine if he had Book of Thoth with around 175 power all the time. Plus all lifesteal items work decent only on like 3 or 4 mages and Hades is one of them, on any other mages Bancroft is waste of slot but ppl still buy it for some reason.

    i think the tier 2 should maybe be nerfed 60 power under 1500 gold is a little high compared with other option's you can get for the price
    i think it should be down at 45 or 50
    max rank bancrofts imo doesnt need any adjustment atm

    they buy it for the power boost that's why.

    given that it is one of the few items that has over 90 Magical Power people will grab it because hey more magical power means more damage. ten points may not seem like much, but you'd be surprised how much of a difference it can actually make

    I think ppl buy it cause of raw numbers, 100 power and 20% lifesteal along with passive(which you cannot utilize too well as squishy god) sounds perfect, but many ppl dont realize that lifesteal on AOE spells works only in 1/3 so its basically 7% lifesteal and then again Book of Thoth give you permament 175 power with ton of MP.

    Finally when Bancroft is good people want to nerf it already like comon it was a trash item for 3 seasons and now Mages have more options when it comes to lifesteal so imo it should stay as it is
