Throt shows once again that CA handing out gratuitous mounts (IE mounts given to characters which they didn't have on the TT) like candy is detrimental to the game. Throt got healing, a buff aura and summons (all three things that are insanely valuable in this game already). These alone would make him a well rounded character with well-defined strengths and weaknesses...as long as he was a pure footslogger.
Too bad CA saw fit to give him a 95 speed (there's few units on the ground that are faster than that and even fewer that can fight it out with an SEM) monstrous mount that regenerates. Now the character is utterly broken and I'm talking Parrotman levels of busted.
Throt is plenty awesome on his own already. But since the mount has insane synergies with his other abilities, using him dismounted is automatically the worse option. And since the mount is doing all the fighting, you also won't see Throt fight himself and so whatever unique animations CA added (he's the sole three-armed character right now), is completely wasted.
None of the characters that got this treatmen enhanced them in any positive way, they were at best forgettable, but at worst we get stiff-mannequin "hunter of champions" Wulfirk, letting his Mammoth trample all the champions. And the aforementioned Parrotman, who breaks character by being a stronger and tankier brawler than his brother.
It's about time you stop with this nonsense, CA. You're batting 0 for 0 with no prospect of this ever changing.
