That SoTT is better than WS, as she has an absurd amount of buffs available and an extremely strong ult on a low cooldown (with a second charge also ticking charge constantly). WS can be better in regards to consistent ranged damage, but it’s unlikely you’d run her for that in a meta comp, as BW and arguably BH/RV with a shotgun do it better.
“Shade and WS have better thp if you ignore sott giving the entire team a buff to thp and leeching a huge amount off them”. Very cool point, I love to ignore entire chunks of classes and then compare them.
I don’t play elf in modded much at all, but I’ve had trio runs where I comfortably took 4k damage, and where my hp went from ~40 to full with a single merc ult.
Giving the entire team a solid buff to thp gen while leeching off of them is absurdly strong, you can’t just choose to ignore stuff that doesn’t fit your argument.
“a bit ahead” I have to assume you’re trolling at this point. WS has zero buffs to melee outside stagger, and has the exact same melee weapon pool.
SoTT on the other hand has her passive, 15% power/15% as, radiant inheritance (which is an absolutely massive buff with solid uptime) and free crits from anyone on the teams ults, with hers being available extremely frequently.
I have no intention of arguing sott vs shade, as they’re both disgustingly broken in a good players hands.
