Default Who is mjolnir/maelstrom good on


I can only think of sniper and windrunner. Sniper cuz it gives attack speed for HS and lets him farm better, and WR for ultimate synergy. All the other orbs seem to be a lot better for other heroes.

Naix maybe? But he should give the electric buff to ally since he have magic immune ability which will cancel the buff.

it's a situational for anyone who wishes to push, and is ranged.
furion likes it.
void also likes it ok.

Mjolnir is in general a shitty item that you should only situationally get.

Maelstorm on the other hand is a great fast item that provides 25 AS and 46.5 dmg (half of which is not reduced by armor!) for less than 3k.

Naix, Lycan, Alchemist are the best imo. Please do not get it on Razor.

Also, Bara with Vanguard + Mjolnir is good. It improves his aoe contribution in a teambattle, but diminishes his 1v1 advantage with MoM.

Storm Spirit, Razor, Zeus, Lina, Leshrac. They all have some form of lighting based spells so those items make them look even more awesome. Sorry if I forgot another lighting hero, didnt bother to check them all.

Um, on Juggernaut, it procs off Blade Fury like a baller.

On Axe it procs off Helix but sucks on him anyways.

This is wrong. If Headshot and chain lightning would proc on the same attack then only Headshot procs and chain lighting is saved for the next attack (because of PRD).

Each pseudo random skill has its own attack counter, even if multiple skills of the same type are on the same hero. If multiple pseudo random skills proc at the same time but one overrides, both counters are reset nonetheless

Taken from the Pseudo-random Distribuion mechanics article.

it's worth noting that maelstrom's static charge absolutely rapes teams with a radiance user. If you have an enemy who's clearly rushing radiance then any non orb using ranged dps or any tank can get it and benefit from the raw dps and the hard radiance counter.

Not really , higher attack speed = more chain lightning .thats why troll is so good with it.

this item is basically a combination of a upgraded battle fury and upgraded blade blademail.

Doesn't it have some sorta interaction with Sniper's Headshot? Plus I can't tell how many Power threads like this have been created. Use the almighty search tool if you can. Anyways,... it's good on Furion, Void, Troll, Medusa, Axe(helix+shield=IMBA),

Even one of the bonus is wasted,the only it benefits was the IAS to perma-ministun instead of chain lightning like Traxxex with HotD even frost arrow overrides it and Mjollnir Windrunner even the IAS was wasted.

OT:
Sniper,Furion,Alchemist and Medusa.

I find it to work best on Invoker. Seriously. Alacrity and this item are a match made in heaven. Well. Only when fighting summons or images actually.

Works well when you have a tank carry on your team like Medusa to put Static Lightning on her.

void. its the best way to increase his dps and get more bashes at the same time. also nice when you have to fight 1vs2/3

should also work with slark. but then again he needs survival more urgently and also can farm with pact.

Abaddon as an extension or replacement for Radiance build. Mjoll, PB, Vang, Radi / Basher and right-click things. Easy to stick to targets with Frostmourne and Phase active.

its also funny on axe in pubs. considering that his physical dmg output is rather hideous, it gives nice ias so that stacking some physical dmg afterwards is more worthwhile. also, mega defense with active ability and helix

Nah N'aix is a tank as well since he's a big threat to the enemy team, so it's best to placed the buff on yourself. Also, Static Charge works on N'aix through Rage, you just have to cast it on yourself BEFORE you activate Rage.

OT: Bloodseeker works pretty well with Mjollnir after he gets his radiance. The massive AOE damage kills the creeps around him very fast, providing a massive Bloodbath heal. He also benefits from everything else the item provides.
