As someone who mains Glaive for many years my eyes bleed upon seeing the recommended Glaive build. It consists of a Breaking Point and a Tension Bow. I think also a Sorrowblade, so let’s begin.
TB is used for quick, instant damage, BP on the other hand for damage that slowly builds over a long period of time. Sorrowblade is universally used, its a mix between tension bow and BP. That’s why it has an existential crisis, it just doesn’t know what it wants to be.
NOT TO MENTION that Glaive is made to be a bruiser with a critical strike build… Not a single Crit item in the build. I’ve seen new players using this build and obviously they totally failed. Glaive is a one of a kind hero, he has lifesteal similar to serpent mask and can get 100% Crit chance with only two crit items, so it’s a mystery to me as to why you wouldn’t build him with a SW, 2x TM or BP, 2x TT.
Seriously, it might be meta for 5v5(which is impossible, let’s face it), but objectively it’s dirt, pure dirt. It has 3 items with 3 different playing styles, this build is like firefighter “Should I become a Police Man or an ambulance driver? Idk, let’s just become both.”,
“Should I become an Assassin or a high-sustain bruiser? Idk, let’s become both”…
I can’t believe no one ranted about this before, or am I the only Glaive main? Whatever it is, let’s have a discussion about this.
