Just read some of the posts and seen a few people mention he might be too weak......... you're kidding me.
he can swap positions with another demigod............. that's insane. That's a game mechanic no one else has. This makes fleeing from battle impossible.
I don't know the range on his swap ability but I could see myself going:
1. tp in for a gank, do dmg.
2. enemy runs
3. swap places
4. enemy runs again
5. chase - followed by cloak of night - followed by swap places again when cooldown is off.
Or how about a rook in a tower farm, trade places. gg rook.
he seems fun, I like how he requires more teamwork than other dg's. the possibilities are endless.
Enemy is chilling near a tower, afraid to fight, low on HP.
Swap ability - grasp - hammer slam. OUCH
I dont know if you can rely on one skill to make a demigod viable.
All these situations require seem to assume a 2vs1 situation, its definatly much easyer to get a 2vs1 going with this demigod (does make keeping track of all the enermy demigods more impotant than it alreday is).
It does depend on the cast time and mana cost though if its instant cast with 20 range for 500 mana it will be scary. But if it has i higher mana cost with a lengthy cast time (2 to 3 secs) you could expect to have the 2 other enermy demigods tele portals somewhere near DA with DA left with poor base speed and healh to get back to saftly (that is you have to consider where you end up).
If the rook in the farm saw it was coming moved to the back of his farm, alies got alerted and teled in on the foward towers low health and low base speed would make this demigod resonably easy to gank in this situation.
This all assumes that he pulls about the same weight as reg in larger fights, but lacks range so has to go expose himself to propper mele damage to put in a real dps contrubtion. DA also makes reg and tb even less viable in compditive play (i would personally like to see all 10 demigods be able to be considered for 3vs3 play).
If he is as powerful as UB without ooze in a non ganking sitution then yes you are right and this guy will be insane but nothing given says this will anything near the case (due high mana requirements, lack of base speed and health), and i have no doubt that with cash spent in amour and mana he would be a force late game but up to about level 7 as long as you keep your health high you will have DA sitting behind a tower.
