what heros can benefit from a bandits artifice?

does the clone proc item uniques?

 

bandits was a known counter to boros to spread out his ulti. but that was before boros was nerfed to kingdom come.

ive seen kerrigans get bandits.

ive also seen balrogs get this item.

Would be more popular if auto-attacking did damage.

 

This, autoattacks are useless when 75% of the heroes in a game are either tanks or carries with tons of armor.

Armor is very easy to stack, and very effective against physical damage when stacked. I don't think bandit's will ever be viable for the heroes that use it (tanky-DPS?) until non-carry autoattacks become useful past 15 minutes into the game.

Ya, bandits would be super OP on gara if it made scvs. Massive walls, double the ulti damage, it would be crazy. Still, it would be nice to have a decoy to help deal with silences. As it currently is only a complete newb would silence a Gara running around with no scv production...

Issue with bandits is the clones mobility in my opinion. There is almost no way you can get your clone to attack the enemy since it doesn't get talents or really have any initiation. you HAVE to have Force of entropy just to get mutiple hits with clone. It is fixed with Shadowmourne since the shadow clone is about 2X faster than normal. In addition. DPS will usually deal about 4X more damage since a INT hero will primarily deal estimated 150% their damage once every 10 seconds. An AA hero will deal about 200% their weapon damage per .35 seconds. Thats about 1000 Damage to your clone per third of a second. One second clone alive. INTS usually deal less damage to clones because Gravity edge actually lowers the damage output. In addition their lack of constant damage favors the clone.

 

It would also be nice if you could still use your abilities when clicking both your bandit's clone and regular hero. Similar in the way you do with Tosh + Spectres. :D
