    What happened to Hades?

    Ok, I really love playing Hades - he is actually one of my mains, but after the changes I have been trying all sorts of item combinations and am not going anywhere. Damage is low, so is sustenance. I mean he never was a great guardian by comparison, but even after the last changes in S4 he could stand his ground well. I have no clue what was in mind of the balance team when they tweaked around again, but Hades takes a bad beating when using his ultimate, also because of lack of damage. And there is no way to survive that without team support - and even then its like soso.
    Any suggestions?

    Thx.

    Hades doesn't lack damage. Case in point, the ult with a prot shred, over 800 base damage, and over 200% scaling. Usually I find that the people who struggle with Hades are the ones who don't build him like a warrior, which he practically is.

    I used to build him as mage with lifesteal and a protection item depending on situation. Thats working like crap now, but lifesteal build is not cutting it either.

    Well, you'd ideally have 2 defense items at the very least, like MoD and SR. Stack those prots with HP and LS, make sure you've got some pen, and you should be covered.

    He got outclassed and overshadowed by a plethora of other Mages, Guardians, and Warriors.

    If you are going to play Hades, build him like a bruiser. But even then, don't expect much from Hades.

    They need to show Hades some love, it's his turn now.

    standard decent Hades build in S4: Bancrofts Talon > Pen Boots > Voidstone > BP of Valor > Spear of the Magus > Tahuti

    This build has huge power spikes as well as moderate survival early game. Once you're team fighting poppping your ult will shred all enemies that cant jump out of it (combo with Cupid ult for best results), almost guaranteeing any survivors are now half hp with max magus debuff stacks, making ally guardians/Sol/Chronos/Freya/Ao Kuang/Morrigans pretty much 1 shot delete survivors.

    With the new Book of the Dead passive and Typhons Fang to replace Bancroft and Tahuti he should be even more sturdy in a fight. Remember a Hades is probably gonna die first, but played right he can be the lone trade for an enemy Deicide.

    Getting a deicide might get u the win or turn the Game. But I don`t think anyone wants to play a God who does nothing but 1 4 Die Respawn Repeat :/

    I dunno, just played a game with Morrigan Hades double dip, Morrigan (me) did 45k player damage Hades just shy of 30k, it works well enough that your 3 allies just need a mop & bucket for leftovers.

    Turn him back into a Guardian. At least then when his damage was horrible it made sense.
