Can someone Explain the Malus Darkblade nerfs to me

Malus was almost never picked in multiplayer and isn’t half as powerful as a lot of the campaign lords. So why did tz'arkan get a -60 percent damage nerf? Am I missing something?

    It's the amount of damage he takes whilst transformed. It's actually a huge buff.

    10. Troy (haven't actually played it, I'm just still salty)

    It refers to self-damage.

    That's wierd for sure.
    Some people are not known for questioning the things they've paid for. Is it a virtue one must have in Modern Times?

    It refers to the damage dealt to himself while in his Tz'arkan form. This is a buff that allows Malus to stay alive in the Tz'arkan form for longer.
    Thank you! Huge buff is great news!

    That's really nice, though could we get an explanation somewhere on what changes to his campaign have been made?

    The patch notes were very vague.

    According to an earlier thread, debuffs only apply at full possession

    And this is why you don't do drugs. You could get a Slaaneshi demon inside you.
