What can Hercules NOT deal with?

This can be a specific character e.g. a difficult mystic or an ability e.g. evade.

Ideally if you could write a list, I’m assuming it won’t be very long lol

    The new marked buff/debuff/whatever it is, buffet/neutralise/nodes that shorten buff length considerably, ability accuracy lowering, there are plenty of dangerzones not to walk Herc into, but if he isn't directly countered you can most likely walk into the fight and just swing.

    I did all of act 6 on an alt account with a 5* Hercules. The only path I can recall he didn't work for was when the opponent has to be bleeding. I think the node is called so you bleed or something like that. Pretty much the only nodes he can't do are when he can't do damage for some reason. Other things might make it difficult, but he can still do it.

    There are things that directly counter his potent abilities (like the variety of buff control options) but some of the reason he is so great is because of the massive amount of damage that he does. The fact that after an easy and accessible ramp-up he obtains another 120% burst of physical damage and armor penetration just bypasses so many defensive abilities that it is a bit nuts. If he didn't have the slight benefit from bleed/poison debuffs to make him LC/DE friendly, then that would have been a bit of a balance.

    There are mostly just things that are more annoying for him when at a sufficient level: like crazy regeneration, the fact that he only has small damage reduction against bleed and poison and nothing besides the immortality to negate other debuffs, nodes that require specific fight conditions such as placing a lot of debuffs (can possibly be worked around with Cap IW, etc) or those fights that reduce damage by 95% except for specific sources.
