*Posted this on reddit too, just trying to figure out what people think of Thorn.
This thread isn’t really to call for nerf, but really just for a discussion.
Recently, I’ve dove into Thorn, almost character rank 14, and she seems a bit too strong. I’m specifically talking about the Curse, Blight, Ultimate combo. If done correctly this will 100-0 squishier characters in a few seconds. There aren’t too many Incursion games where I’m not leading in kills and have 200k+ damage with only a few deaths.
Granted, I don’t see too many Thorns utilitizing her full potential, but she can do some ridiculous things. I stack max health with her and get the double jump and am very, very hard to kill while doing crazy damage.
The biggest thing IMO is the curse bonus that volley can provide from level 4, I believe. This makes cursing enemies and getting the 35% extra damage trivial as volley is super easy to hit. I’m not sure if this should be changed, something else, or anything at all; but as it stands I would rank Thorn S tier.
You get loads of minion kills early from Blight, usually first to get your ultimate and then it just snowballs from there. Usually I’m level 10 when everyone else is 7 or 8.
I’ve found Phoebe and Rath to give her trouble, but not once I get up to 2600 health. If I have my combo I’ll kill them long before they kill me and if I don’t I can get away with double jump once their slow wears off.
How does everyone else feel about Thorn? She has to be my new fav.
