XD I should probably do the same before the direhorn gets nerfed.
Feels so cheesey though.
That shouldn't stop you. People playing it is the only way to figure out counters and/or if it's really too strong and needs a nerf.
My only issue with this guy is that Primal Cry is just too strong. It's not as bad on the Zandalari raptors because those don't have any speed-dependent moves to go with it. However I think it's too much when you have the combination of a) Primal Cry completely destroying the opponent's ability to use speed-dependent abilities and b) Horn Attack.
Just as a comparison, there are abilities that boost or lower team damage by 25%, and those are fine: the opponent still does 75% damage. However reducing speed by 25% is not fine, because speed is an all-or-nothing stat, and in the vast majority of cases, 25% is the difference between all and nothing (ie -25% almost guarantees that you will now be slower than my 252+ speed direhorn, even if you invested heavily in speed). This destroys any strategy that relies on stuns/swaps/dodges, which is most of the strategies that aren't simply 'spam damage til they die'. So, the reason Direhorn is so good is that it's a high-damage pet that can reduce the game to spamming damage. I don't know whether it's overpowered, but I do know that you can't counter it with CC or other tricks: you can only counter it by out-damaging it, or out-surviving it.
