Yesterday me and my friend did some testing on Regulus vs Sedna.
Testing conditions: only base shop items, any favour items.
Sedna went for health regen stacking - Taurugist cap, Namoths ring, crusader plate, blood of the fallen, hauberk of life. Perhaps some more healt regen stuff. Priests, health regen abilities.
Regulus - Max damage. 3 pairs of hardest hitting gloves, parasite something, warlords staff (i think it is called, the one with dmg bonus). Favor item - poisoned dagger (to help kite the enemy as i had very little tank). Build - max damage. The wings ability, mines, snipe.
So the sedna just stood there, doing nothing, ocasionally healing herself. And I was trying to overdamage her healing.
Dropping mines under her, shooting in winged mode, sniping in all possible configuration. Couldn't get her below 50%. She held easly at 75% life. So we went to fight in the entrance to my base. You know, 4 towers on cataract. She held her ground, i couldn't overdamage her healing.
Then I went and sold all my tank, bought all normal shop damage equipment. I know, unplayable setup because of no survivability. Came back to sedna. Sedna easly held at 50% health.
Couldn't kite-fight her either, as she gets speed buff from abilities and reggie does not. Maim combined with poison dagger in theory should slow her down enough. Nope, does not work. I guess her healings remove those effects.
So I guess I need to give up regulus because it can't win with healt regen stacked sedna.
Or I was doing something incredibly wrong?
- Kiting doesn't work.
- Brute force overdamaging does not work.
- Playing smarter does not help much - she can just walk in to my base, stand in the middle of the tower and take them down one by one, ignoring my damage, then just take the castle down.
