No Love for Orion?

GreyKnightDantesGreyKnightDantes Registered Users Posts: 282
Is it me or does no one, and like i mean NO ONE, use Orion in MP? Like, i've played around 25 matches against WE and I've yet to see anyone use him at all...

Seeing as I don't play alot of WE, does anyone know why?

    Glade lords and Durthu just have way more advantages to bringing them.

    His ranged attack is too slow and too short ranged.

    I won one battle as Orion against Clan Angrund. He is a good lord against Dwarfs, because of his free magic attacks. Wait until they blob and go crazy on them. Also, he has a lot of armor piercing damage. My only complaint about him is his very low armor. Maybe he could get a buff to health, he takes almost full damage from non armor piercing lords/monsters.

    @Walrus he is good in that particular Match up..maybe due to clan angrund's ethereal heroes,dwarves's magic resistance makes his damage output mediocre

    Howeverer i rarely pick orion because he has no healing so you are forced to bring lore of life,and other than that..

    the female glade lord has : potions+Net+Arrow of kurnous

    Durthu has: lore of beasts+his 2 personal abilities +he's a monster in melee+phisycal resistance (+flame weakness)

    Orion is also considered a large unit,this way cannons and ranged troops have much more accuracy against him

    The only good things about him are those 2 free/unlimited magic abilities

    Orion's best use is as a high level troop buffer due to the previously mentioned flaws in using him in a combat role, and the epic nature of those buffs. Those don't actually exist in custom battles, so there goes the neighborhood...

    You can get a vanilla lord riding a dragon for about the same cost as Orion.
