imo inf doesn't need another dmg component added to her backstab. but yeah it would make things interesting if part of her damage was replaced with, say, a poison effect. it might remove some of the gayness of immediately losing a quarter of your health when she pops up behind you--it would give the victim a chance to react and whatnot.

but i feel like adding a talent would be complicated and unnecessary, though it would be entirely "like" the infiltrator to have a poison backstab or some such
plus dot would make AoO more or less similar to ice lance.

two things i already hate: running back to base and getting backstabbed by inf, and running back to base with dot on my ass. imo we don't need two in one...

Talent: adds DoT damage component to Attack of Opportunity


Are you dumb? Inf is already on the verge of OP, plus she scares every newb to EotA away. Yak also said he was going to do some rethinking on her, heavily in e I believe, and I don't think it was to make poor, underpowered AoO better. Or Inf for that matter. :roll:

I say leave Inf (for the most part) how she is and make another poisend-themed, sneak-attack hero, for orcs? (possibly a Draenei warrior of some sort?)

I think it would be cool to have another assasin-style hero in EotA.

@ Empyrean: I think it's more like half or even 3/4 of your health, atleast if you're a caster.

What she needs is a talent that makes AoO deal damage when you stand infront of someone.

Maybe if the inital backstab dmg is reduced. Otherwise, really bad idea.

While Dekar may have been kidding, I don't think it's such a bad idea. Provided it is significantly reduced from rear.

I don't think it was sarcasm.

I think it should be obvious that such a talent would do much less damage than normal, not full

I dont think that counts as disabled. Point blank range rockets maybe.

You need more friends to use holds so you can lol AoO to the face.

Problem with hold AoOs is that the damage is random, even if you're hitting them from behind. I believe stuns are the only thing that doesn't count for "hold" AoO, in which case you're usually given enough time to wrap around anyways.

This is not a discussion of Ion's inf skillz or of the amount of fail DarkNemesis brings to the forum.

Please, keep it on topic. Thanks!
