Hi! Got an idea to rework and give life back to one of the least used unique hybrid in the game: Spinoconstrictor.
Due to Boa’s exclusivity i think it should get more love by devs. This is a little rework that could give him back arena credibility without making it overpowered and giving somehow the high requested bleed back to it.
Stats: the same so
Same resistances: 100% distraction & swap prevenction, 50% speed
-Cunning strike (a little distraction improve)
-Sidestep (or Evasive stance but back to 75%chance of dodge)
Wounding Counter attack (25% of opponent’s hp, lasting 2 turns)
The last one is the big change. The wounding counter would work like a cleansing swoop by stygidaryx. It needs to trigger the same 3 times before killing an opponent, but lasting 2 turns would let Spino having more mobility and team synergy. And with no escape it would be a serious contender in arena. I got rid of on escape evasive strike, since that i don’t see a lot of utility in it and it depends on opponent’s choice.
