Photosynthesis + heal comps. How to counter?

Post by Ashblade » March 2nd, 2015, 7:03 pm

I have my own comp I run that has 2 mechanicals + Unborn Valk. I win the vast majority of fights but get toen to shreds by these. Is it more effective to just flee and reque or what is a aquatic comp that works to counter. What Ive seen is ruby droplet+ tree+ sunflower/humanoid

Darkness is your friend to amputate healers. They rely a lot on sunlight. Change the weather.

1. any weather changing
2. force swap
3. big burst
4. Aquatics. (altough using the peacock from spires of arak became a favorite in my realm)
5. using it to your advantage (human racial, self heals)

Darkness is a great option here, but probably not the standard crow team though. Heal teams are usually elemental, and nocturnal strike is only 40% to hit them with darkness active.

xufu can single handedly wreck the a healing team. He has high burst and can take advantage of their sunlight to heal himself greatly. If they don't have any avoidance they probably can't kill xufu no matter what they do.

Wow I have never seen Xu-Fu on a Sunny Day healing setup before. I use him all the time on my Moonfire team, and I don't remember the last time I fought a Sunny Day team. It's been a long time, and I don't see people using them that much these days
