    Ash new lifesteal: viable?

    Hi, I was wondering if the new lifesteal card for Ash could actually be useful, since it goes up to 50%,
    even though caut is extemely popular.

    I usually use Battering Ram with one of those decks:
    1) Heavy Metal IV, Gate Crusher IV, Vanguard III, Percussion III and War Machine I;
    2) Heavy Metal IV, Thrive IV, Gate Crusher III, Vanguard III and War Machine I.

    I was thinking if I could replace Thrive IV in the second loadout with indomitable IV (40% lifesteal), since
    most of the time I use Shoulder Bash for escaping/movement.

    The problem is, of course, Caut, which renders lifesteal almost useless...
    what do you guys think, can it be a viable option or will it be considered a meme build?


    Also, if you have some advice on how to adjust my loadouts I would appreciate it.

    As of now I honestly can not tell if it even works. Still doing some testing though. Also, good builds.

    It's actually pretty good.

    Been seeing a lot of good ash players use it and find it very useful for usually slug shot.

    50% is 200 and 40% is 160 i think. It's pretty good sustain and imo better than brawl.

    It is really good but it is hard to tell as no icon indicates the healing.

    There is an icon, just shows yourself healing from it like veteran/self regen.

    I see, I will keep testing it to see how much it helps compared to the "standard" loadout.

    Ive been running full lifesteal with the Kinetic Burst healing and I have survived situations I would normally not have thats for sure. Pair it up with Battering Ram and you can buy yourself moments to recover too. I'm a numbers nut so the fact that self healing isnt reflected on the scoreboard is a bummer for me, but the build is def solid.

    been working for me as well its nice to have the extra bit of sustain on her and with all the poke dmg she deals its an awesome survival card. I typically keep it at 40-50% myself and use knockback+shield reload build.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    The build it's working for me too, it gives good sustain and it helps surviving situations you otherwise couldn't.
