Heroes of Newerth Thread 2: Electrician Boogaloo. Now Free to play!

Recommended Posts

Gotta say, I'm really liking some of the newer heroes (with the notable exception of Emerald Warden).

Bombardeer, Dampeer and Monkey King are all a lot of fun to play and I'll probably miss those in Dota 2. :[

At least heroes like Aluna, Tremble and Fayde will have superior counterparts there.

Eh I think burrow and the pet would be considered the key elements of Tremble gameplay, neither of which came from Broodmother.

Except you can't teleport between them, which is a huge aspect of Tremble. I didn't really see Spiderlings as being equivalent since they're temporary and don't have a snare, more like FA's skeletons, but I guess they serve essentially the same function.

ANYWAYS nobody said we can't ever play HoN again if we like the S2 heroes.

Chronos is 250 Silver Coins, which I estimate to be about 10-20 games, depending on how much you win. He is kinda underwhelming though.

Had some good games with Luke, Vilecat and a few shizzies today (even though we lost everything) :<

I'm just having a ball playing all these new heroes.

The OTHER community hero finally making it into the game. I dunno, I like the design but it overlaps a bit too much with Tremble I think. Looks fun to play though. Guess I'll be spending more coins on that Nyan Cat courier though.

I really love playing as Pollywog Priest. You just put down your lazorzz, err I mean voodoo wards, and hold the enemy in place by turning him into a frog or wrapping your tongue around them.

Don't forget that with a bit of practice you can frog them, then cast your wards on them, and they'll be trapped inside.

But yeah, Pollywog is a great hero.

Whoa, not what I expected at all. Might explain why I'm <1300 MMR now...been randoming Drunkards this whole time. :< BTW what did they do to Tort that suddenly made him God tier? Also where's Tremble?
