                                          Han Solo (shoots first)

                                            Just won a game with him and yes, seemsgood at the moment. Would play again.

                                              Well i feel his strength in pubs has mostly to do with countering jugger, legion commander, slurk and monkey king so hard its not even funny.
                                              Ok watching amazing LC duels of 2 people staring at each other is actually really funny, played the hero a ton this patch and ghost shroud really messes with all three of thos adding the benefit of providing not only the survivability but also just straight up killing them with reapers scythe once the countering is done.

                                              Wayful Spirit

                                                He could solo kill any hero with a scepter and a dagon. Not to even mention Eblade and refresher.

                                                Vimes

                                                  Saw this on twitter before starting a game, didn't read it but decided to try him out. Bloody hell he's unkillable. I decided to go pipe because a) we were ahead and i had the gold and b) it helps negate the additional magic damage and the improved heal rate is improved even further.

                                                  Add to that that your ult cd is pretty low so you can use it purely for the stun. Admittedly the other team weren't great and i'm only 2.7k but still felt a bit to op.

                                                            haha poor me never play necrophos

                                                            MM.Airsick Lowlander

                                                              This was a really necessary buff, but I'm not so jazzed about the changes to aghs.

                                                              One of the biggest problems with the hero was always that as potentially powerful as his ult was, it was on such a high cooldown that it wasn't worth picking the hero. He couldn't survive long periods of time like, say, bristle could, and thus wasn't putting nearly enough damage out to justify the eventual aghs upgrade. Now the aghs upgrade is kind of what the ult needs to be. Moderately stronger than what would be balanced, mind you, but still, the base cooldown time is ridiculous.

                                                              Clearly that isn't proving to be an issue in pubs, but I think in a well organized game it's still kind of difficult to place him in any one spot. He is still clunky, much like jakiro. Slow turn rate, terrible attack speed and animation, you can outrun death pulse, etc. There's the possibility that he could work in specific situations for sure though. I can see the potential for offlaning him, and it's already been established that he can be played mid.

                                                              Personally love playing the hero and I am very glad to see the early game boost afforded by moving his passive into death pulse. That worked very well for DP a few patches ago and it is working well here too. I do expect to see some rebalancing, but probably only minor nerfs will come. Just a hunch though.
