IIRC reckful and yipz did math last season on the value of disarming ferals and came to the conclusion that it's actually a really good thing to do.  I've since found myself disarming ferals against certain comps without really knowing why.  I assume that it's only taking away the stats from the weapon for 8sec (with the pvp power being the big chunk of it)

However, by this logic, wouldn't it be just as good to disarm casters?

IIRC, ferals damage is based off weapon damage. Disarming them greatly reduces their damage, but they can still build combo points and use them to maim/savage roar (and thus get a proc for clone).

If you're purely looking to stop damage though, disarming a feral is a good thing to do.

Ah ok.. makes sense then.  For some reason i thought feral damage scaled off AP and not weapon damage. thanks

It's been a long time... but I don't think weapons were more than a stat stick back then. They didn't use weapon damage at all.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Should make it so when you disarm ferals they move at 50% movement speed, because you know, they don't have arms

Yeah just what we need! Nerf the already gimped ferals :(. Disarming does lower our dmg by a good amount though.

Personally I thought it was pretty obvious that he was making a joke.

Disarming Ferals does reduce their damage because every ability is based on weapon damage (that's why Unheed Warning in S9 was such a ridiculous burst pre-nerf ofc).

But apparently, as bouncyballs points out in the post after this one, when disarmed Ferals deal 50% of their normal damage. Yet another mechanic I was not aware of, me bad :x

This is a fact............




When you disarm Ferals or WW monks, it decreases their damage done by 50%.

There is nothing to it other than that.

no weapon damage/calculations, its literally just a flat decrease of their damage by 50%.


this is in fact a new mechanic added to the game.
