Comparing the two, why does hungering strike seem like its overwhelmingly better than devastating blow. it had higher dmg and heals. I don't play poppy but wtf o_O.

because you have to consider the champion as a whole? if poppy had a heal that large on such a short CD with that much burst damage she would be borderline OP due to how hard she is to kill. warwick needs a lot of tank gear to make his heal good.

Because they are two different Characters fulfilling two different roles with two different skillsets.....

I think devastating blow is on a lower cooldown. Also, it can proc with sheen/triforce/lichbane for MAJOR nuke damage.

Actually, they have pretty much the same role in team fights. AKA: Take the squishy carry out of the fight ASAP.

Honestly, Poppy's a bit better at that then WW a lot of times, but WW brings a strong jungler and a decent group buff to the mix.

You guys are forgetting the 8% of max hp damage that scales with AP...

I've taken out over 50% of people's health with DB many, many times. (lichbane + mpen + AP)

I've taken out at most 25% of someone's health with hungering strike.
