Shaman Card Combos Analysis and Balance

Post by ShowNoMercy » Sat Jul 02, 2016 5:37 pm

Hi All,

I'd like you to pay attention to this analysis.

Let me know what do you think about it.



ORC - Cursed Strike

Starting Cards
Bonus Damage 1
Reduce Heal -3
Damage 43
Reduce Defence 35
Incompetence

Effect of Combo

Bonus Damage +64 ( 64X Starting card)
Reduce Heal -63 (21X)
Damage 43 (1X)
Reduce Defence 70 (2X)
Incompetence


TOTAL 88
Average = Total/4 =22


I find this combo balanced enough, so i'll evaluate other combos according to this, let me know what do you think

ORC SHAMAN-CURSED THUNDERSTORM

Starting Cards

Bonus Damage +1
Reduce Heal -3
Damage 22
Reduce Defence 10
Bonus EP +50
Incompetence

Effect of Combo

Bonus Damage +36 (36X starting card)
Reduce Heal -41 (x17)
Damage 22 (x1)
Reduce Defence -20 (2X)
Bonus EP +150 (X3)
Incompetence


Total 59
Average 11,8


Note, this combo has 5 effects total so it is normal that average is lower than other with just 4.
You should notice that bonus EP isn't as significant as Other effects, expecially for Shaman that have a lot of EP Already.

I'd Give this for istance at least:

Alternative Effect of Combo

Bonus Damage +44 (44X starting card)
Reduce Heal -41 (x17)
Damage 22 (x1)
Reduce Defence -40 (4X)
Bonus EP +150 (X3)
Incompetence

Total 69
Average 13,8

Still not as stronsg as orc warrior, by the way shaman is strong enough already


KNIGHT

is Starting From

Bonus Damage +1
Bonus Defence +1
Damage 22
Defence 17
Incompetence

Combo goes:

Bonus Damage +70 (70X)
Bonus Defence 0 (0x)
Damage 22 (1x)
Defence 18 (Almost 1x)
Incompetence

Total 72
Average 18


I guess this may be still well balance givind Defence x3 (Otherwise shattering strike is way overpowered respect to this)

Bonus Damage +70 (70X)
Bonus Defence 0 (0x)
Damage 22 (1x)
Defence 41 (3x) Very much sense because 2 cards have defence in it
Incompetence

Total 74
Average 18,5

ROGUE

Bonus Damage +1
Bonus Defence +1
Damage 25
Damage Reduction -8
Incompetence

Combo

Bonus Damage +41 (41x)
Bonus Defence 16 (Defence, but iot is the same x16)
Damage 25 (x1)
Damage Reduction -16 (X2)
Incompetence


Total 60
Average 15


This is very balanced one, defence 16x starting from +1 bonus may be a little overboard, but I'd say generally well balanced


ELF ARCHER - CURSED RITUAL

Starting Card
Bonus Damage +1
Reduce EP -6
Damage 21
Heal 15
Incompetence

Combo

Bonus Damage +15 (15x)
Reduce EP -90 (30x)
Damage 42 (2x)
Heal 30 (2x)
Incompetence

Total 49
Average 12,25


This one has something strange in it, Damage is 42. Last but not least Incompetence and EP - 90 is a little overkill imho.

Alternative Combo

Bonus Damage +40 (40x)
Reduce EP -60 (10x)
Damage 22 (1x)
Heal 45 (3x)
Incompetence

Total 54
Average 13,5


KEEPER - CURSED UNICORN

Starting Card
Bonus Damage +1
Reduce EP -6
Damage 22
Incompetence

Combo Effect

Bonus Damage +35 (35)
Reduce EP -126 (x21)
Damage 22 (x1)
Incompetence

Total 57
Average 19


Keeper is so Strong that I'm not sure it really need 3 turn to regenerate at level 90 means 180 hp healm sort of 3 turn immobilize

I'd go down to

Alternative Combo:
Bonus Damage +35 (35)
Reduce EP -60(x10)
Damage 22 (x1)
Incompetence

Total 46
Average 15,3

Just my 2 Cents, I'd like to hear other players comments.

Thank you for reading.
