Is Vamp too weak ?
Iam a Vamp player on EUW and i want to ask this question to all vamp players out there : Is Vamp too weak (atm) ?
I hope to start a discussion on strenghts and weaknesses of the vamp.
Iam of the opinion, that vamp is indeed too weak. Vamp has not had much luck in the past updates. Attribute boni are plain bad with even the lvl 5 boni only granting us 50% crit dmg for a limited amount of time. The main imprint set most of us use did get the survivablity portion flat out removed from it. Our 2nd awakening gave us a skill that is great in dmg but has the slashing dmg type while most of our dmg skills have piercing and that in turn makes the new artifacts bad for us since we roughly deal 50% slashing and 50% piercing dmg so 1 dmg type gets neglected while most other classes can benefit 100% from the new dmg type artifacts. And last but not least our dawn gear set is one of the worst sets released.
Just a quick comparison between the vamp hat and the ALREADY NERFED cat hat:
Vamp gets 8% dmg on bloody hell which is our nuke and second best dmg skill and 7% dmg to scythe rift which is maybe the 4-6 th most damaging skill.
Cat gets 11 and 12% to her 2 most damaging skills.
And that are only the numbers on the hat if u look at the whole set it gets even worse.
I already heard 1 quick and dirty solution to many of Vamps problems and like to post it here ( i dont remember from whom i heard it so i can't give credit). Make all of Vamps skills 1 dmg type or maybe mix it up like blood restoring skills are slashing and blood spending skills are piercing. that alone can be a huge dmg buff since we can use the new artifact to its full potential and also dmg type gems will be more potent on vamp.
What are your thoughts on the matter ? How could they make Vamp a better class ?
