    I got Hera to Rank X Diamond in three days. Ask me anything

    Last three days were interesting, fun and on occassion quite taxing.



    Anyway, since this god release seems to be rather controversial and I am not into all that jazz about people whining about how bad she is supposed to be, feel free to ask some questions and see where it gets you.

    Do make an effort out of keeping the questions on the topic of Hera.

    Care to elaborate on her strong and weak points. What role you find her best at, not just jungle mid etc but supportive mage or burst etc.

    Also does Argus dmg from the aoe trigger item effects like gem, spear.

    Strong Points:
    Good damage
    Good CC
    Flexible in her playstyle and build choices
    Fairly good clear
    Fun and engaging playstyle
    Good poke
    Good peel

    Weaknesses:
    No mobility aside from 15% MS Boost
    No CC Immunity on her ultimate
    Gustav can sometimes be awkward to control.

    Gustav needs attention in whom you want to attack with him. Unless you gave him a very specific target to attack, he can go after someone whom you aren't concerned with. His leash range is also very short, especially when compared to other pets in this game. That means that you have to remain close to the target you are going for. She will receive a buff to her leash range though and in my opinion, that is one of the very few buffs she actually needed.

    I did play a lot of different game modes. I think I had Hera everywhere minus Siege, Assault and MOTD. In Conquest, I only played her in Support. Less by choice but because that was the only role left for me while being able to get Hera for myself.

    Hera in support works super well. Her 2 and Gustav make for nice CC tools for general control, initiations and peeling. Her 2 and 1 also help with clearing somewhat nicely and having a support being able to attack with ranged basics is also rather nice. In every game I played her as support I ended up winning the lane overall, but this is somewhat skewed by the fact that many people you are playing with are basically farmers.

    They see something they don't know or understand, in this case, Hera, especially in the support role and start to revolt subconciously, leading to a lot of my teammates taking that as an excuse to make troll picks.

    For example, I ended up having one game with an Hera/Aphrodite Duo lane, Cu Chulainn Solo, Janus Mid and Sylvanus Jungle. Aphrodite and I actually won our lane and, funnily enough, Sylvanus had very good ganks overall. That did not stop the enemy mid and solo to stomp ours and we ended up having a huge rant about trolling and trollpicks that was absolutely unnecessary at that point. But alas.

    I haven't been able to play her in mid, solo, jungle or ADC in any capacity, but I honestly believe that she can play all of these roles, at least to a certain degree.

    Regarding item effects, I tried it once in Jungle Practise and it did not work with Gustavs basics or the aura from the shield.

    Haha classic.

    This is a major downer for me personally then. I only had 2 games or so with her but didn't feel home on her so I didn't play her more.

    I'll give her a new go once she is buffed.

    I highly suggest that you play her now. She is too much fun to pass up already. You will also have an easier time playing her with everyone being like "I will play her once she has been buffed".

    3 days is not bad LOL, I'm actually glad to see you like her. Just shows different strokes for different folks. Unfortunately, I'm one of those that will wait till she gets buffed on her next patch LOL.
