That would be why I didn’t use those words in the quote. Never said pathox was OP, except for that brief period after spell scaling first went live.
I don’t know if Itz is or not. It seems to be relatively in line with base power and highly skill and knowledge depedent. I use Itz. My itz is 5.4b. It can easily be taken down on some of the bases I attack regularly with defenders. A good flier can also dodge everything and kill almost anything. But that’s true of a lot of hunters. My skill with him is by far better than average but less than that of top fliers.
He wasn’t for a brief bit. Pathox could take the top bases of the game with maxed gear and simply spectral and then cast chill twice on each set of towers. The only possible way to mess up was to not cast chill fast enough or to have a hammer catch you just at the wrong time, and in this case you cast it once or twice more.
Pathox has increased in lethality at my tier for sure. I know entire teams that have gear maxed on it just because it was easily available and requires little skill when you can kill any tower with a double chilll.
