And even for that it could fail, because you could've pulled the chaser with you.
How could you say this? His ult was so awesome! Id love to see something similar on a new hero. You could gank with whole team out of nowhere. Pull enemies out of roshan, pull to mines. Get everyone in for a black hole or mag stun. The low cd and simple mana made it an excellent utility spell.
Although that ult and magic barrier didnt fit his role as dps. He was pretty much another right click hero. (I did love procing a purge every few seconds)
Yes, new storm is better. But id love to see that ult back. Shit is meta changing.

But most of all, I miss the Sentinel owls. It basically let Roof be a alt version of techies. I had so much fun with those. I would stick them to the sides of lanes and activate it whenever someone ran by.
Hell, I even miss old living armor. I liked that armor. Now it's a passive. On top of that, he's lost stats and got his ulti nerfed >:0
RIP OLD ROOFTRELLEN
Agree. Owls really gave him an edge. Id give up that new leach bullshit spell for owls any day. Hell, id give it up just to get his imba str back. He would smash so damn hard with all that strength. Honestly, the biggest turn off for me is that shitty str gain. I hate him now :/
