That’s it, tell us your thoughts on this Paladins OB47 patch. It seems like the games are going to be a bit more exciting and Inara may finally get in the middle of a point. We still think that Inara needs a bit more buff, around 200 more hp would do a nice job. However, this is what the devs are thinking and it is what it is.
As always, Hi-Rez studios are always listening to their community, so let’s sit back, relax, and see the future outcome.
