A bird is better for random ganking with a high kill rate, but a int/con human/aelf can not be initiated by anything other than a scout unless they're retarded, and they can out heal any other scout except an int vamp or a WR, and it's so simple to outrange a vamp or skin a WR. When it comes to scouting it's con scout regardless, and when it comes to fighting other rogues, int con will outheal and outdamage and out stam the others. I made to my and many others knowledge the first con/dex bird scout(mid vengeance), and when I made a int/con aelf scout it was hands down inferior due to RC heals and extra points which help out running and all that other great things. I myself always and will have 5+ scouts within 1-2 months after live, so I can choose what I want, but an int/con human will barely beat a aelf, and they'll beat the rest. Also a dex/con bird will beat a vamp, and after that is vamp in the 4thish slot. I enjoyed them all, and a glass vamp will do more dmg to random PLers than int/con and a bird will do slightly less while not being a 1 shot dot. If you're good a int/con scout will never die and get plenty of claims/runes/info in the process. no character in the game can kill a properly built/played int/con scout, you can win(rogues and and anything that can't get to you with 190% running) or leave, any casters that you don't instagib/stun u, u can not unstealth or run away.Beula wrote:Flight, Skydancer, high base con/dexThoron wrote:I wouldn't say it is a crutch but I don't see how it is "vastly" superior.. I'm no scout expert so i'm curious as to why aracoix is the end all be all scout?
EDIt: if u want to gank/gank. Huntress and thief are better equipped, if you want to scout and control the battlefield, scout.
