    Obow mania

    I've been seeing a lot of hunters in my games (non-conquest games) building Obow first (before boots) item. What's up with that? I understand that it's a good item with high dps boost capability...but it scales off of your power, so why build it when you don't have power? I could ask the same about Poly 2nd item but that isn't built that much anymore (thank gods).

    If they are building it first, then you are talking about the tier 2 right? Which doesn't actually scale off of power, it just adds additional clear.

    Personally i hardly ever use it, but then i usually play ability hunters who have plenty of clear.

    It can be good in assault for poke dmg and if any of the enemy team has blink it disrupt it too.

    Well, obviously start with t2 but then they go straight to full obow. And that "additional clear" is ass. 40 dmg every 4 basics and you have low AS without items.

    Still better than what some of them got without it (xbalanque)

    Personally if i was just going for attack speed I'd build silverbranch, so obviously they want that passive which is really only good for clear. Can't think of any other reason they'd pick it up.

    I can't think of any reason to pick it up first. It is usually arena, where theres one or two mages to clear anyway. And if you don't stack as a hunter, you don't have to clear.

    Yeah they should never really be building it in Arena, silverbranch would be better and cheaper

    They are bad and don't understand how good power spikes from Devo Gloves or Transcendence are.

    I use both of those items in my Ah Muzen Cab build. Tell me does Ah Muzen Cab get extra power from something in his kit built triple crit on him before because me and my friend were doing troll builds in custom duels and still reached 350 physical power without pots. When I use the same build on any other physical god I can't reach the same amount of physical power.

    Transcendence gives bonus power based on max mana, that might have something to do with it.

    He doesn't get any power from his kit, just attack speed
