I’ve noticed a recent influx of new Attikus players due to his recent buffs, and was wondering how these buffs have affected his place in the meta.
Even before the buff he was able to deal insane damage and once he got swift strikes and tenacity going he was able to destroy in one on ones, solo sentries, and break down healer-tank cores. However, the only issue was getting him to late game, but thanks to the buffs that issue has somewhat been remedied. With the health boost I’ve been able to escape more easily, survive brawls more often, and actually defend by being a meat shield. The pounce change is really useful because it main use was usually to silence or slow the enemies rather than to actually harm them, or to apply hedronic arc to a group of enemies. It also helps to note that characters that used to be the bane of his existence have received nerfs: Galilea, Beatrix, and to an extent Ernest.
With these changes and the influx of players Attikus has become a serious threat in most matches that he is in, thanks to his immense health pool, insane DPS, great mobility with pounce, and access to wound. However, I still think he suffers from not having any hard CC, being easily susceptible to CC from the opposing team, and being soft countered by most ranged characters.
But what do y’all think about him?
