Buff Iron Fist

Who else agrees that Iron Fist needs to be buffed soon? Very soon. He needs to be completely remade like Magik was. He probably needs regeneration with his glowing fist, more armor break, etc

    Lol, why would iron fist have regen? He should be a true glass cannon and damage dealer if anything.
  • Just a low regen like OML. I agree about the glass cannon and damage dealer. He needs to incoporate his chi in battle. And give more damage and criticals

    In the marvel universe, IF doesn't regenerate. He's basically a homeless guy that survived a plane crash and gained the powers of the iron fist.

    Perhaps he could have an added ability, which enables him to nullify buffs everytime he inflicts armor break?

    Or a passive that allows him to ignore abilities such as evade, armor, etc.

    Been years since I read the comic, but it would be in keeping the the Netflix IF, and general Kung Fu mysticism if he could use his Chi to heal himself. Maybe hold block for 2 seconds to activate healing, using one bar of power to regenerate some health, then have to wait 15 or 20 seconds before he can do it again
  • I think it would be good for him to have a passive ability or two
  • In the comics, Iron Fist has the ability to heal himself and others. It just takes a massive amount of his chi. Regeneration on Iron Fist would be something like Iron Patriot if they implement it.
  • All of the above are right - IF should have a low-level ability to heal (or at least shrug off debuffs faster). That would totally fit his ability profile in comics.

    They should also take some of the vastly better fighting animations that other characters have: the animation (and effect) of Mordo's stage when he is charging his Heavy attack, where he clearly looks like he's drawing Chi into his fist... And some of Psylocke's crazily aggressive flying kicks!

    No need to change his S3 animation though - that's a winner! Just add an effect like Stun or Power Drain, and the job's done.

    I love Iron Fist so any buffs would be welcome, but the only reason I'm adding something to this thread is because I read the subject as "BUTT IRON FIST"...

    Pillow Fist needs some love, 12.0 hurt him more than most. I remember when he was known as the beat down master, seems like a long time ago.

    @Palanthrax Didn't they nerf his damage after the willpower nerf? IF may have been my first 4/40 3* champ 2+ years ago. I think I had him and Black Panther and tried to compete in arena that was filled with people with max willpower.

    At that time IF and BP were boat anchors if you wanted to do anything in arena just due to willpower, but questing? They were, and still kinda are, the bomb.

    It would be nice if IF could mete out the damage like he once did...

    For all of that rigorous K’un L’un training, he can’t take a punch, nor is he tough enough to power through debuffs. On offense, his heavy chi strike is truly worthless, and after a handful of armor breaks the additional stacks are mere window dressing.

    Give me just one of the Iron Fists from the comics. The ones I have are clearly the Finn Jones versions.

    12.0 hurt him and while not a direct nerf it definitely reduced his ability to rack up the damage. Hopefully they will revisit him after the Luke Cage and Rulk buffs. He was designed to deal fast big damage and nothing else. No utility or armor just attack. If you take away his attack you're not left with much. Like a lot of people I really liked him but really haven't used him since 12.0. Pulled a 4* IIF a few weeks ago and haven't done anything with him. Sad really. Reminds me of a brand new champ we just got. Lol
  • I would love IF to be buffed; he was my first 5-star and is currently my second best champion. Low regen would be good an really any other buffs would be so useful.

    He actually doesn’t really need it. Mvinceable did a video with his 4/55 IF against LoL Rulk. Go look into up. He didn’t win but still

    If it takes a player of his ability to make a champ look good, and he still didn’t get the full kill, then the champ is no longer good. Iron Fist only has damage in his arsenal and his damage is lacking.

    I believe the issue is to do with armour breaks no longer pushing below zero armour, but what I don’t understand is why Thor’s are still so effective.

    Just put him back to the kind of damage he had before 12.0 and make his heavy dispel 1 buff of any type and he will be great.
