He is weak against high levels enlightend heroes . Will the enlightment be any good?.
Yeah, I think his passive increases will make him a lot more robust (unless caps are limiting him in ways I don't understand), but he's super expensive to raise. The first few levels are 3 spirits each, whereas the original ones were only 1 spirit each until their first "choose attribute" level.
Ok, so we see he is a lot more expensive. Defensively, he will be incrementally better. Nothing huge that I see defensively. But, the devs definitely wanted to make him more viable offensively. He is more support oriented and much more powerful on offense. The devs want him to be used more in wolf form rather than just tanking and never changing form.
AI base defense I do not see changing much but then I do not know how the fortitude slows will workout. How long do the debuffs to speed and attack rate last? Until death? There is no time limit posted on the description.
On offense switching back and forth to get bonuses seems viable when he costs only one rage to switch at skill lvl 30. The bonuses are pretty good as you level his insight.
