    Just test it after reading this thread....

    Amazing——he got 438 regeneration (mine is 5R4) per critical hit landed!!! Absolutely insane!

    He basically can keep regeneration throughout the fight, regardless the opponent has buffs or not.

    Sounds like a bug.

    the regen is actually nice

    Not sure that’s working as intended. In my brief testing he seems to be healing on stagger refresh, but that’s not how I recall it was working before in my testing. It wasn’t specifically called out as a change, so I’m skeptical that’s intentional. I would be careful about ranking Hood on the basis of his regen until this is confirmed working as intended.
    Agreed, it's not clear what should be happening. Text says regen when the stagger ends, however, that could be construed as meaning the refresh technically ends the last stagger, rather than meaning you only get regen when a stagger expires on its own or when it nullifies a buff.

    I have already 6r2 my hood before the buff announcement, so wouldn't be bothered too much. If that regen is working as intended it will be truely awesome

    I don’t believe he could do this before his update, so I’m not sure if this was an intended change or if it’s just a bug. There wasn’t any mention of this change specifically in the spotlight, so it may possibly not be working as intended. Hopefully there will be some sort of confirmation sometime soon, as the regeneration does seem to make him very sustainable.

    He might be a different champ, but he seems really good. It’s not that hard to keep up the charges and finish with more than you started with via SP1 spam and invisibility. You actually gain a charge per missed hit, which could end up being 3-4. The regen is nice and better than before. It seems like stagger is near permanently up. Fate seal will be missed, but this version of Hood is generally better all around.

    Honestly, The Hood buff might be the best of the 4.

    Same. I’m not sure if changing the term from expiring to ending has any meaning. But if it stays the same I’m very happy with hit.

    The buff is great, this is why you should wait and try it first before crying about it as most of this cry babies in this forum do.

    It's totally obvious you have had 0 experience with Hood pre-nerf.
    Be silent on matters you have no stake in.
    Hood has damage now but at what cost? Bugger all for utility. It wasnt a buff, he was NERFED.
    Yes, the fate seal was nerfed, and he can’t be used for that now. Just try him out in a regular fight though. He’s good for general gameplay and actually a little crazy so long as Kabam hasn’t accidentally bugged him. He has pretty nice damage, great stagger, and great healing. The bullet charges are very easy to keep up, and the miss mechanic is far better than it was. BWCV is superior if you just want to nullify all buffs, but she already was. Use her if that is the utility that you need.

    Let’s hope not , I admit 110% I am reaching so far my arm socket might come out. But what if expiring and end changed a big part of his kit.

    No confirmation about hes regen ?

    I Really hope they don’t mess with his regen. Hood is now so fun to use especially if you run suicides.

    I’m hoping they don’t. I seriously find him more fun to play with the regen in his new kit.

    Like buff refresh doesn't trigger md, it will probably be changed.
    The irony is it's not even that good. You can try him in v5.3.2 on aggressive fury&regen path vs war machine. Take hit or two in block and try to go back to full hp. With champs like sorceress, dorm, gr and BWCV, who all have more reliable regen and buff control.
    Also his invisibility didn't trigger few times on first hits for me there.
    Overall that path is pretty good for hood, but imo pre nerf hood was better. The second fight there is htd, and not being able to remove all his armors may even mean you have lower damage output. While he definitely should be better now for that specific path at least

    We're not using hood for regular fights. We're using hood for buff matchups. We got champions like Kingpin or Ghost for regular fights. He's not even as good as those two or many other mystics for regular fights because of his long ramp up.
    He heals quite a bit (every time a stagger refreshes) while also keeping most of the buffs off, which is apples to oranges regarding those champs you mentioned. While he might not be your go to for regular fights, you might want to consider it. He is very sustainable. He’s also extremely fun, because the damage is coming from many sources without having to think about it. With SP1, you get the damage ticking from shock, each crit does burst energy damage, and meanwhile the hexes are building up. The SP1 also adds 3 bullet charges, so you don’t really get depleted as long as you go invisible here and there. Drop a heavy every few combos for a huge chunk of damage. I’d say he is doing about 35% less damage than KP while bringing a great complement in non-overlapping utility.

    Tested and regen is too good.
    Kabam will say it is “not working as intended”.
    If they don’t tell us now, they will in a month.
    Wait to rank him.

    Even Namor wasn’t that good and they nerfed his regen.
