Consume Souls vs Abathur


While there is a number of heroic abilities that can 1-shot Abathur, the most unavoidable would undoubtedly be Consume Souls. On level 16 it does roughly 700 dmg to a full health Abathur and on level 20 it 1-shots Abathur from full health if another ally dies. The overall damage it inflicts to the team is pretty significant as expected, and intended, but my problem is with 1-shotting a character that is on full health and already has limited combat capabilities. Surely it might do the same to Vikings or Murky, but even they have ways to withstand overpowering 1-shot kill abilities. Of course as every post I would like readers to share their opinions and suggestions.


I agree in principle, but if the aba were to git gud, he would just burrow to base when 1st wave of consume souls starts channeling (unless u can predict that no one will die - lvl 20 ofc).
