After looking at some talents in "Hero Talent Compilation" (thanks to July0714) Link I have realized that Sprint is useless nowadays. And I believe it's true, because when I roll a lvl 5 sprint from a talent box, I simply discard it. It doesn't increase any attack or raise any health because it just increases movement speed. Not attack speed like berserk, so it's practically useless.
But don't get me wrong, I know some people use it to make their heroes move faster, such slow moving ones as Atlanticore, or puts them on fast moving ones like Skull Knight to aid in arena.
But truth be told, Sprint is dying. Slowly as new talents such as Oracles Favor replaces the old talents. Even though some talents like Scorch still proves useful in heroes like Skeletica, Sprint lost its purpose in the game.
There are a bunch of heroes coming out, each with unique skills and talent combinations. Just like how Bogeyman is good with attack based talents and Lazulix is good with defensive talents, why don't we make a new hero who will bring light upon sprint?
Some of the slowest heroes today are "Paladin, Spirit Mage, Grizzly Reaper, etc..."-double checked
But they aren't that slow, right? They still reach their destinations fairly well, their speed isn't like a snail's speed. So Sprint again, is useless in this situation.
So what if we made a hero that has a short-range atk but a very high dmg. And give him little, or a lot of health. Too even it out, the hero would then be really slow, like really, really, really, slow. It would have like less than 50% of atlanticore's stride. It would literally crawl to the opposing hero, while taking tons of damage along the way.
There comes sprint. With a really good, but slow hero, people would resort to choosing sprint as its talent. Maybe even give it sacred light or zealous drive, but mostly sprint. Then finally, sprint will crawl out from the darkness and shine.
I believe that Sprint is a great talent. It is unique, actually the only talent that raises a hero's movement speed. Perhaps IGG could elaborate on its uniqueness and make more heroes that would work very well with it.
