    Are we just ignoring that Viktor now has a better self-heal than most supports??

    How does this possibly make any sense? Viktor now can self -heal using his Cardio LC for 400 health/sec and hustle has NO COOL DOWN. The best self heal Furia can manage is 525 health OVER 3 SECONDS (so 175 health per second) and to even get there, she needs to spend 5 load out points on burning oath AND to trigger the self heal she needs to heal an ally. Make it make sense.

    Suggestion: With the increased healing, hustle should have a small cooldown when using Cardio (similar to stellar wind) so that Viktor can't just break out into this heal whenever he wants.

    400 is so broken not only viktor got no cooldown on his running skill he can heal without waiting for recovery he can run on walls or go around and around to recover also not even 3 cauterize can cancel if viktor keep on running on the map.

    i got a hard time dealing with viktors on 400 heals just playing on the siege he can go decoy and cant be killed they really need to nerf it.

    Instead of nerfing viktor right after he got a buff, maybe we buff supports in a way that directly benefits themselves.

    try hard cc like roots, stuns,

    or cripples and void grip,

    also if he's running he isn't being very impactful.

    true but if you 1v1 with no root or cripple you got a hard time dealing it

    Viktor is either healing or dealing damage with Cardio.
    It was a meh talent before the buff and it's a solid pick as of now but the self heal has a trade off.

    The difference between Supports self heal and Viktor's is Supports are still able to do other things and Viktor is not.
    You run to heal and that is it.

    This is also a talent.
    Supports have cards or the ability to heal themselves and can do other things.
    Jenos, Mal Damba, Seris and Furia have cards that give HoT's through use of their Healing Ability.
    Out of those 4 only Seris is locked into healing but that is because her heal is channeled to begin with.

    Even if Cardio as it is now is better than the self heal of most supports is that really an issue?
    Not really in this case.
    Patch 1.4 Ying Best Healer in the Damn Game.

    Support Skye is a better healer than Jenos.

    There is another difference, and lets not forget about it - an isolated fight scenario as well, where this talent will also outheal anything which supports with their lackluster dmg can use to have a chance of escape, for example. Also you need other people on many supports to heal yourself, Furia's self HoT, as OP stated, is a joke. While a dmg champ has now better damage than a supp (is logical) and the means to work team independant and sustain.

    I believe some self heals on supps need just to be improved a bit to balance them better.
    Per aspera ad astra.

    I am just rewriting the post I wrote in the other thread:

    <<Funny thought. Jenos' F was nerfed many times for he had too much mobility (???) and he can see in 3rd person. His dmg been nerfed even more times for he is a support, he's not supposed to deal decent dmg (???). Now we have infinite running Viktor, able to self heal more than as if he'd have some of the supports healing him(remember that Jenos and Furia, for example, have very low self-heal and ONLY IF THEY ARE HEALING OTHERS, that means that, if no ally is nearby, they're doomed), with good speed, and the dmg and range of a DD.
    This weekend has been solitary Viktor running in circle on the point, capturing on his own, in each game. Before reaching caut 2 he was impossible to kill.
    "Who will pick anything else than a support, if they could heal and also deal dmg?" they said. Forgetting that, for dealing dmg, a support should sacrifice heals (and his/her heals are for OTHERS, not him/herself).
    Now I wonder where are all of them and why they aren't filling forum with "who will pick anything else than Viktor, considering he has the mobility of a flank, the dmg of a DD and the self healing BETTER THAN A SUPPORT???"
    I'm waiting for your coherence, guys.>>
    I've finally found it!

    New to the forum? Have a look >>>here<<<! Some useful answers.

    actually the reasons behind his dmg nerfs are even more bullshit.

    Binary star is too strong at lvl 10, he can out dps dps and practically snipe (i think?), It's nerfed ok thats fair.........

    but lvl 4 binary star ate an unnecessary nerf

    It's dps is lower than base at level 4 now (THE LEVEL THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO BALANCE AROUND NOT 10)

    SO THEY NERF HIS BASE DAMAGE TO ENCOURAGE BINARY STAR USE FOR DMG??

    but the dps increase in minimal, in fact luminary gives more dps,LUMINARY NERFED,

    on the plus side, he doesn't have a MUST HAVE talent now, well, not as much.

    (sorry but I don't quite get what the rest was trying to say.)

    How is this ok? He gets damage reduction while using this ability. Has a boast for his Cardio that makes go even faster. It's funny that I made a thread on Viktor saying he was to fast way back that most laughed at and now he gets this absurd buff. A Flank needs to waste basically all there cool down just to eliminate him. Let's say you some how are close enough to him. His team is just going to mawl you. Yes get cauterize. Ok yes duh, that counter all heals. However it last 1.5 seconds. Viktor can be out of sight in that time period and heal him self come back and pick you off. It doesn't make any sense.
