    Hydras Lament changes

    Hydras Lament was in the past an item helping to let gods have higher burst without actually needing to go for crit (luck).

    Now after the change the damage is halved, UNLESS IT CRITS. The fact that it now can crit somehow is contraproductive,
    it makes it even more luck based then pure crits.
    Since it actually matters if the first attack crits (with normal crits you just care how much of your attacks crit and this is evened out more then the first attack during a short fight).

    Also it was used for physical casters to somehow get a better scaling (they need CDR high physical power and physical penetration). But this physical casters often cannot (or dont want) to go for crit since this does not help them much.
    Also the item losing power makes it even worse in a lategame build of physical casters (they are anyway weak in the lategame!).

    I see that it was made cheaper to give access to 15% cooldown reduction for a cheap prize, but this made this item just so much worse...

    Really, Loki is the only one who builds Hydra's anymore.

    I think with Hun Batz and with Awilix it may be also still worth it, since they somehow have synergies with it with their passives.
    Also for both building Deathbringer + Malice (Hun Batz)/Rage (Awilix) is a possibility, making it also potentially better.

    But still...

    But is it really worth it? I mean is it noticeable? I mean serqet goes for krit anyway so on her yeah it may be ok as well.

    If you don't crit, you still get a consolation prize. Then, there's also the cooldown.
