Welcome to the League of Hydra!
As you may have noticed, this post is about, the item that I rage more about than the EUW server lags.
In every game you see it, and it's like everyone thinks "Hey, I'm melee, why not build Hydra?".
In fact, I am not a direct adversary of Hydra. His younger brother,, is a decent buy on jungling and farming champions, and really OP as burst caster.
For example, I like to buy Tiamat as my second item on talon, right after. But, and that is the difference, I dont rush Hydra itself. The reason you get Tiamat on Talon is that you have a 5th spell with another 100% AD ratio, and that is really broken as a burst assassin.
But why, for f***s sake, do I see so many Talons rushing Hydra? I mean, the active effect is the same, and you just wasted 1400 gold on some lifesteal, which you don't need til late because you are not a sustained damage dealer, and on some AD, which you could get easier by buying afor example, which builds into more useful things.
The same goes for everyone: You do not need Hydra itself for damage or waveclear, only Tiamat, and Hydra is just a cool later upgrade. Even on champs who cannot fully use the item, like Shyvana or guys like Olaf, who could wreck faces with every other item, you see this .
Also, a mid- to lategame Hydra is nothing to flame about, but so many summoners rush this item, its just annoying. While I don't see nerf points, this item is just totally overrated imho.
Merry Christmas, S4n00bz
