  • Ataashi - too strong now?

    Thesis from the title - true or not? Let's see - normal round attack all with double curse (!!!), slow immunity (aka you can't stop the curse from happening by slowing), improved evasion (= much less chance to be hit), large health pool with added +35% hp and 25% dr vs warriors (biggest group there is), big 50% power aura to one of the best groups (Qunari) and another good one (Outlaws), and on top of this big -25% power aura to spirits! Oh, and over 13000 damage on hit - only Northern Hunter has about 600 more. Compare this monster to any other 3* LC - only Dragon Morrigan seems to be as useful, and maybe Abyssal HD for Reavers (and Orlesians) - due to being also normal speed and having more groups.

    its nice!!!! Its just what atasshi needed, She lacks the Qun tag so that compensates, plus she will be overshine whenever Saarath comes out, she will only be used in Outlaw events

      I think that she may still be used outside Quns and Outlaws - especially vs slow power gainers (warriors and others). Double curse is so convenient (only other normal speed unit with it is 3* Solas) and powerful and you don't need to sacrifice a spot in your dream team, and non-AoE hitters will have big trouble trying to attack her.

        Though she may be much more useful with the curses and normal speed, her health isn't all that great and could lead to her getting knocked out by a strong quick unit before she attacks. I think she is perfect now.

          She won't due to improved evasion (much less chance to be hit), especially when units with taunt are present too. And how 48743*1.35 = 65803 healths is low? If she is perfect now, then almost every other 3* LC is imperfect and needs a revamp (dragons, mentioned months ago).

                Shoot I forgot about the self buff and evasion. Sorry, I really haven't used her much after I got her tiered up.

                As for being one of the most powerful 3* dragons in HoDA, I think her stats and auras are fitting and only her size needs to be adjusted (to match Vinsomer). She is the last dragon you meet and is supposed to be the strongest dragon you come across in DA:I (depending on when you fight Hakkon and what trials you've turned on - right now I'm having an incredibly difficult time with Kaltenzahn). Her curse functions are also a great fit for the poison-dragon model.

                I'm sure you could argue that she makes Sandy Howler less useful and adds to the issues people are having using Fereldan Frostback, but you could say the same of D Morrigan, The Elder One's D, and Urthemiel in being boosted over the other 3* dragons and overshadowing characters like The Mother. She is quite strong and very useful, but I don't think she breaks the game or is overpowered.

                  DM is still better.

                  If ataashi is getting a nerf, then Dragon morrigan should as well.

                  Can we get some consistency around here, please? Calling for nerf on ataashi while DM still rampages around in Inq squads.

                    Alright, we asked and got answers.

                    Ataashi is correct and is staying as-is. The fact that she doesn't really get reciprocated auras due to lack of groupings is accounting for her beefy stats. She is still outclassed by the more cohesive units that receive reciprocity in auras (like DM).

                    Enjoy your dragon!

                      I concur. She'll be missing out on those nice resistance auras provided by Ket/Arv and Triumvirate, which is one of the strong points of the real Qun (considerable resistances across all negative afflictions).

                        With inq you have chances to win, a very few chances but you can win, versus triumvirate teams with normal round power/dual curser it's impossible.

                        CG should realise that power curse is what can broke every attempt to counter a top team.
                        In fact ataashi is weak on its own but with a decent triumvirate/the keto-arvaarad/iron bull plus hissrad team he's damned strong.

                        When facing top teams you need an extreme high damage output and inq was strong because they can destroy you easily before you have gained all the power required (but with some strategy you can beat them). If you got cursed by ataashi how the hell can you take down an IB or a sten?

                          I rather find the 2xketo 2×arv saraath setup almost impossible to deal with. Teams with IB and Sten and ataashi in it can be taken out with the right quick setups.

                          What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                          It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                          To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                          What happens if I break the rules?
                          At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                          Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                          For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                          Posting Suggestions
                          In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                          1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                          2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                          3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                          4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                          5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                          6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                          7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                          In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
