Kaiser is, in fact, too powerful. Having 17-18k on a Sonic Blast single-handedly lets you rush through highest-level tower bases, with which you could’ve previously struggled.
Not to mention the gold boost is very, very good as well. The difference between its Sonic Blast and the regular player Sonic Blast’s damage is higher than any other pals’ counter-part spells, such as Eldrak’s Firestorm, being nowhere near as distant in damage difference compared to players’ Firestorm.
But, I suppose, it may have been intended by the devs. Monks have covered everyone’s survivability for a long time now, it’s very difficult to die being surrounded by several of them, and like a Werewolf or Ogre, who can soak up damage, so defensive pets are no longer needed, at least at the level range I’m at. On one hand, it’s very good, because it tightens the gap between still newer players (lvl 80-110) and the veterans (110+).
Damn, really? I hate and despise the lack of information these devs purposely hide from you. STILL WAITING FOR THE FIX ON MONK’S HEALING RANGE IN STATS TAB, YOU DAMNED DEVS.
