Please remove RNG from the obelisk.

Recommended Posts

Obelisk is great, Obelisk is fun. 

But its also not so much fun.

With cyborks all over the place. Its a risk to simply put it down. 

It confuses enemies randomly, which leads to an entire lane leaking.

Can we please remove the chance to confuse?

Which attack or upgrade does the confusion? Not sure i have actually ever seen it do this... 

I think he might be talking about the polymorph, not too sure

That happens on upgrade numb 4 i think, and the snake doesn't move... Just sits floating in the air.

I think it has the ability to do 3 things;

Turn enemies into snakes.

Knock them up/ bubble.

Confuse them.

The last one results in a firework of cybork attacks sometimes :P

Pandy sez -snip-

 It does 5 things. 

(6 if you count hero buffs as two: Hero shield + stat buff)

+Turn enemies into snakes.

+Knock them up/ bubble.

+Buff allies. (shield/stat buff)

+Smite. 

+Snake god flamethrower. (When fully appeased)


++Snakes on a plane C8 shard (if you have it) gives it yet another ability. The flying snake medium ranged attack.


If it does in fact randomly confuse (haven´t noticed myself) then it is a bug.

No. Each tier brings a new thing:

1: Smite  and Flamethrower at max appeasement only

2: Buff

3: Bubble  or Confuse (can't remember

4: Bubble or Confuse (can't remember)

5: Polymorph

The confusion only lasts a second - it's very easy to miss.

I´m not saying this source is up to date, but a mere 1 sec confuse sounds more like a bug to me. 

Max appeasement is not needed for smite. 


EDIT: It actually sounds like the mystic ability "Call to madness" somehow ended up as a small bug in the Obelisk.

I have used a ton of Obelisk all the way up to its nerf and I still have all the mystics afterwards for no other reason other than I dont need the hero cards they are on. 

Of its upgrades it has 

Tier 1 or placement - Smite

Tier 2 - Hero buff which shares a cooldown with smite so if you only want it to damage with smite you do not upgrade it, also only hits one player at a time and a second shot at someone with the buff only refreshes to timer of the buff

Tier 3 - Bubble effect similar to the Vipers Fang

Tier 4 - Polymorph which turns the target into a snake for a few seconds and in certain cases like the roller takes away its damage reduction ability from hitting anywhere but the engine but also removes the bonus damage of the engine itself

Tier 5 - No bonus assigned, this will be a purely damage increase focused upgrade

At max appeasement at any upgrade level the snake god will appear as a large red snake on the tower to spew flames just like the Flamethrower tower that the Adept/Apprentice has. The tower itself does the smite from the pink crystal in its mouth so the flamthrower portion will not interrupt its cast, and all tower abilities get shut off when hit by a Kobolt.

Same. At one point I had 12 obelisks all sharded, which was a pretty fun build. Now I just use 1 but smite dmg is over 40mill so it still rocks.
