Building Taka for v1.3.0

Tick Tock-a

Since the release of 1.2.0 a month ago, I’ve had a lot people asking me how they should be building Taka differently. In particular, Shatterglass is more powerful now and the revised Broken Myth isn’t really effective with the hit-and-run tactics of an assassin. Also, with the advent of tanky Koshka builds, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Super Evil Megacorp has lived up to its name by trying to convince us that assassins should be played by building damage.

Vainglory is a different game all on its own, but the players come from differing backgrounds and some varying mindsets which I’m hoping to delve into here.

Early Start to the Family Trio

Thanks to the geniuses at Super Evil Megacorp we’re going to get an early look at Vox! I didn’t expect to see a date this early because his numbers haven’t been released publicly, but Vox is going to be hitting the Fold sooner than previously imagined.

Vox will be available on Wednesday for Incredibly Concentrated Evil (ICE), or on Saturday for Glory.

For full details check out the link below!

Unlock Vox early!

What does this mean for new champion releases? Are you excited to get early access to the newest heroes? Do you think it’s a great idea to do a slower roll-out to avoid as many insta-lockers? Comment below or on reddit!
