Hello Poconut – there are 3 builds we’re trying to preserve:
- Invoker6 Thorns Bombardment (Currently does GR133 so far…)
- Invoker2 OR Akkhan6 Bombardment with Norvalds
- AoV6 Fist of the Heavens with Norvalds
At present, I am not for the destruction of Norvald’s. There is a chronological order of changing thoughts in this thread and the primary crusader PTR Feedback thread. As we play and theorycraft – thoughts evolve.
So for the record, I don’t want Norvald’s to get nerfed. In fact, while you were typing your comment, I was ironically revisiting AoV6 Fists of the Heavens – knocked out a GR134 with it. It’s a very high risk build, and super fun. I’ll post a video and you’ll be like – how did he not die there…?? like every 45 seconds lol.
Lastly, I personally want more buffs in exchange for the dismantling of A6I2. Kikaha has quantified the total nerf amount to A6I2, while others have come up with really good solutions for how to fix it, Rashiel particularly came up with an idea of splitting up Invoker2, and placing some of the thorns bonus into I6 so we can control how much I2 benefits A6I2.
Whatever the solution may be, AoV6 Fists will need more love, because the other skill (Heaven’s Fury) still waxes the floor on GR134. I don’t think there’s too much room on Norvald’s Fervor’s bonus before it starts replacing items like Golden Flense, Johanna’s Argument & Guard of Johanna, etc. It could possibly go up to 500%-600%, but no more than this. The right solution is to just double the power of Khassett’s Cord of Righteousness – 350% is adequate.
I’ve uploaded 2 videos of AoV6 Fist of the Heavens if anyone’s interested:
