I think Phinn catches a lot of hate for being so useful. One of my top priorities when playing him is boots boots and more boots! He's a tank and will do well in team fights and help delay for backup when found to be solo. Give.him more a chance his stun is amazing and he continues to be one of my favorite supports to play.

He is a great support if played right. You shouldnt push his limits. Play support too his high health makes him greta at it. I have played with too many phinns wanting to go jungle

UPDATE on Phinn:


Had many matches so far. He's basically walking hit points for the other players. But he has to be jacked up on armor to survive. He's pretty slow for efficient jungling. And has to be darned conservative in the lane due to its speed.


Some suggestions for the developers would be... (I'll continue to add here)
If he's going to be so slow, increased the range of his A. It's very counterproductive to have to get very close to do any real damage and then have no means of escape. Or you could add a slight hop forward, or backward for that matter.

The C ability is still very fun. And I'm getting used to B (polite company). The small pull inward is subtle but usable.

His overdrive's are significant. If I had to guess I'd say the developers wanted you to armor up early game, (damage is good very early but then comparatively tapers off without upgrades) and force Phinn to be a team tool. Independant, he dies much.


UPDATE UPDATE. ..OK, I think I get it. Having fun now. As long as my damage dealers are not novice.

AND announcement: this will probably have low stats at the end of most games regarding kills. But make no mistake his buffs and AoE and enemy pull-into a gank will heavily influenced the outcome. So take that into account in case you're expecting to see high numbers of kills.

I have particularly enjoyed polite company, where I can repeatedly save allies lives from an oncoming enemy ultimate



Tips for gameplay, he needs armor early game or he dies quickly. He really needs to be paired with a damage dealer to be useful.

Theres some parts i agree yet a couple of things that most likely wouldnt be tweaked

1: Hes slow...so? All heros has its weakness other wise he can litterally bulldoze anyone standig in his way and really resons why boots are in the game. Hes a tank...taking hits is his thing so why does that concern u when hes role is "protector"? Theres no reason for him to 'escape' to use him wisely in a situation...otherwise hes large hp and shield can help him slowly escape

2:There should be no means of tweaks! His range is enough to hit an opponent! HIs damage is VERY productive if he has the right build. With CP for Quibble is very strong to hit groups of minions and heros! Use your boots to escape...other wise use quibblejust use it when ur close to ur allies so there would be no reason to escape. Addig hops? Look his slow why would you want to add more movement escape where seems his agility comprehends his slow movement speed (again use boot!)...

3:If your talking about the 'B' abilltiy, yes its meant to have its small pull other wise theres no reason to have the ult....(it pulls and increases shield for himself and allies nearby using B)Very Helpful for support

4:Overdrive is incredibly significant. his damage in both early and late game has its massive damage not only early once u can build cp for him, idependednt he can survive with his tank abillities and his massive damage unless ur talking about 1 v 3 yes understandably can die if used unwisely.

Your tip is somewhat useful but its ALWAYS recommended to use amour early game anyway since is mosly a support, though building cp on phinn, doesnt really necessary means hes gooing to predictably die quickly. totally agree to be paired up because really all heros has its weaknesses

Im commenting on these because its seems negative on him, yes he has some weak points but theres points where there good situational gameplay to use him at a huge adavantage. some of your points are somewhat mistakened.

Feedback for phinn- use it to play in several games,what i can say is it's ability ain't cool like his appearance,its kinda disappointing though. I try to build it with 2 complete boots and still slow,it's basically a hero that anyone can kill. The third ability can only be used when your opponent is in low bloor,it doesnt help at all while HE is in low blood. So imagine a hero with turtle speed and not so helpful ability,how are you going to win.

Just like MegaZ,
Dare i say…refund?

I always use Phinn in my matches and most of time I only get 0-3 deaths. I think it depends on the player. Yes Phinn is slow that's why you during the early game (while you don't have the boots yet) you need to have at least one of your team mate near you or don't make unnecessary attacks. Also, in my exp, ranged heroes can deal massive damage to Phinn and the best way for him to attack ranged heroes is to pull them near him.

His abilities has nothing to do with its style because its a support and can deal massive damage if u build correctly...Using tier 2 - 3 boots can speed him up (is eough) and so what if hes the slowest because he got large amour and health sooo theres all heros that are balanced out, so he is not easy to kill...hes a tank/support it DOES help when the oppenent is low on health (phhh blood). There is no reason to use ur ult when hes low on hp so why are u even mentioing about it...? Its really best to use the ult when ur with allies or u can take them down 1 on 1 due to his defense...Yes he is slow (all characters has its weakness) with his VERY HELPFUl abillities, with good use of this hero surely going to win the match-
Suggesting your negative perspectives and no knowledge on you knowing to use this hero, im suggesting ur a noob :3 if i was you i would keep trying to figure out how to deal with these kind of heros deiscovering its positive aspects and it's negative

Not sure where Phinn will be relevant. Devs need to tweek him a bit.
Feedback, late game damage is wimpy. hard to increase damage because of all the defense needed to overcome the slowness. Kind of a slug on many levels.

Dare I say...refund?

C ability is just plain fun.

He is ALWAYS relevant...Hes not useless, no need to fix him not even the slightest bit. If u BUILD Phinn appropriately hes damage is incredibly MASSIVE especially using the quibble. I have tested him using cp and wp its best to use cp build for his incredible damage amongst minions (land jungle) and heros. If your building him for support than ofcourse his damage is not at high expecttions but is enough to stun and do damage towards enimies. Yes he is very slow but all heros has its weaknesses. the positive side is his tanking abilities and damage reason why he is incredibly slow. Reasons why theres boots in the game :3

he is very useful and really i dont dare you to refund this hero...use him to your advantage

also his ult will be very much useful for ganking and if your team mates cooperate with you... C will be useless if your team mates didn't immediately deal damage to your opponents especially if your oponents are not low on HP

He may be immune to stuns, but not slows. Ringo destroys Pihnn in a 1v1 if played right, all you have to do with Ringo is A,B,C and that kills him :)
