Pendles seems to not perform as well as the other assassins (cough cough Deande) when it comes to the meta. And I’m kinda curious as to why.
It seems to be his lack of CC. I don’t want more CC in this game, but Pendles has pretty much none outside injection – at least, compared to other characters. I think, instead of adding more CC, we should intensify his current abilities. Injection slow one second longer. Necrosis could be altered… keep the wound cloud, but also have enemies killed by Pendles shoot out wound-clouds that home in on their live allies (I’m not really being serious with this change, just messin’… sort of).
.5 seconds added to smoke bomb flash, or .75.
Pendles gets 50% cc reduction, or at least 33%.
I dunno. I’m being half “for realsies” and half “not for realsies” here.
