Malosi Hero Review:
Malosi real power lies in his ability to silence troublesome effects from casting buffs and debuffs, not on his damage. (In comparison to other fast heroes 300% damage is significantly lower)
What Malosi does is to prevent status effects from taking place – i.e. If Kunchen fires his special skill with Malosi’s debuff happen – Defense decrease debuff will not be applied, heal is applied, Elemental link is not applied, and lastly, the cleanse will be applied to remove Malosi’s debuff.
Dispel, Cleanse, Heal and Direct Mana Removal are instant effects, so they will not be affected, as well as dealing damage.
Malosi in Offensive raids
There are certain heroes that rely on buffs and debuffs as their strength. Examples of which are – Aegir, Kunchen, Telluria, Jean Francois, Hel etc.
Such heroes almost always form the basis of a troublesome defense team. Being able to stop such buffs and debuffs from taking effect, in addition to the cleanse and dispel heroes that you bring to the battle can really help in your raids.
Overall this makes Malosi a very versatile hero in the sense that you can bring him to almost every raid as he will almost always be useful. (Unless you are facing a team comprising of 5 snipers.)
Malosi in Defense
Malosi in Defense is quite lacking, the poor A.I. targeting makes one of his strongest effect negligible.
On his own, Malosi is not good enough to be considered as a sniper.
Malosi against Titans
Against Dark titans, you will be able to stop the poison effect from taking place, and the critical buff against rare titans.
Poison damage over time can easily be resolved by bringing antidotes which are cheap and easy to produce.
Stopping critical buff from being applied can be quite significant for rare titans as a critical hit from a titan can easily One hit ko any hero.
The Critical buff from Malosi’s elemental link can add a bit of damage to your overall titan damage.
Overall, Malosi is not a must have vs titan, more of a good to have.
