Why is it that since the update with the health not recovering, Shaman is the only hero that has her heavy nerfed and not do the standard 30 dmg?

Because the Shaman can hit with a very fast heavy from 15-20 feet away is my guess...

Not everyone does 30 dmg on a heavy... what's standard?

Well, it doesn’t seem that she is lacking in the damage department. She will eat people alive if they are not on their toes, so… yeah? She doesn’t need 30 damage heavies.

the Valkyre dash attacks are 17 damage. and a free GB if you block them.

The Shaman attack is 500 ms(?? not sure) and 20 damage and you can strike in 3 directions. no GB on block? it is way better.

it is a nuke and i really struggle to even block it.

Valk and Warlord heavies only do 25 dmg

very true her dash attacks are the savest to use no one else can compare to that. i wouldnt mind her having the best dodge in the game if she not also had the best shugoki hug, the best warlord headbutt, the best build in passive (auto-heal on bleed attacks), the best raiders fury variation, the best soft-feints, the maximum possible assisn hp pool is the icing on the cake

seriously giving her 1 or 2 strong aspects would be enough, you cant just make her the best of everything.

Many classes are doing much lower damage than 30 with their heavies such as conquerors, centurions, valkyries, warlords, etc. Heck conquerors were even doing a pitiful 23 at one point, you literally could not kill people as long as they backed off for long enough and let their health regenerate and he STILL GOT NERFED in S1.

Hi cknox! Here is the explanation for the heavy opener nerf from the 1.15.1 patch notes (https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news-community/152-307453-16/patch-notes-v1151):



We reduced her Basic Heavy Openers. Since she uses a variety of moves in real fights, this should reduce her win rate, without impeding her ability to fight.
