I haven’t played Montana much since I mastered him, but when I did he felt almost overpowered. He has high DPS, a huge health pool, tons of damage reduction, and CC on every ability by default. However, there has been very little talk about nerfing him, and I think that’s because of how bad Firestorm is.
The level 4 helix “Firestorm” removes Hailstorm’s amazing slow effect while also causing massive overheating problems. In return, Firestorm adds a DOT that does about 24 DPS, and does not stack on the same enemy. The result is less CC, less DPS, and less survivability if you also take “Feeling the Burn” at level 6.
And yet, every Montana I see online takes Firestorm. Is there something I’m missing here, or is every other Montana just unaware of how bad this helix is?
