    Xbalanque nerfs incoming

    After it becomes easier to stack his Passive, HiRez will probably try to nerf him.

    I already play Xbal despite his negative rep, when people realize he can hit for 850+ per critical hit often enough, higher than any other Hunter I have tried (6 of them now), once his items and Passive are fully stacked, the nerf cries will commence.

    Critting for 850 is nice and all but it never happens considering how big of a disadvantage you put yourself in early-game conquest as Xbalanque. Let it happen, anything to see less boring passive play in the SPL lanes.

    Theres these things called Thorns and Hide of the Nemean Lion. If you see Xbal building crit, get those and he's toast.

    weird becuase i havent really seen anyone kind of uproar saying xbal is junk and needs help
    as long as it goes out to a fairly high number to get fully stacked i dont think youll really notice it
    say it it was 5 power per 5k damage dealt i wouldnt think that wouldnt be very noticable
    if people have been crybabing about people ks ther stacks for his passive imo hirez shouldnt be taking thier opinion into account

    It's funny you mention those 2, but not the anti-crit item itself, spirit armor.

    Cause thorns and nemean work against other things too, Spirit Armor is dead item against anything but crit.

    That's because Nemean Lion is a better counter to crit than the true anti-crit item.

    I think all they need to do is up the damage needed for it hit max passive. 6000 is really not a lot for free 30 power and it will be hard to do anything against him in lane making the best way to play against Xbal is being passive in lane.

    This means he won't be bad at any point of the game anymore other than level 1.

    6000 takes a while to get, you don't do that much dmg early on.

    If we are talking about SPL level of play then maybe since damage is usually lower there. But in ranked and normal Conquest he is going to have his passive full by around 10 mins or so if both ADCs are not playing passive. Mind you this is only for the full 30 power, and he is still getting 5 power every 1000 damage that he will get very early.

    It's going to be a nightmare to try to box him at almost every point of the game. Think Ullr level almost.
