**SILVER ARROW : Asha launches an energy-based silver arrow to an enemy, dealing bonus damage within her normal attack damage; if Asha is using an element for improving her arrows it’ll suffer a specific extra effect.

* If no quivers are on, the silver arrow will stun for 1.5 seconds at all levels.

* Damage Type per silver arrow: Magic

* Range: 650

Cooldown: 15 seconds.

Manacost: 95 at all levels.


-Very effective arrow when any of the quivers is activated, being able to entrap, slow or blasting a channeling unit, you might not be able to kill on your own the target of this arrow, yet it’ll allow your team to do so if sticking together in poison and nature arrow.
_____________________________________________________________________________

**ENCHANTED QUIVERS : Asha's enchanted quiver sets her arrows ready for action as she used to when hunting, using fire, poisoned or nature arrows, affecting on different ways her enemies, if no elemental arrows are active Asha will gain a chance to deal a critical shot.

Toggled Skill: there is no manacost.

Cooldown: 1 second between quivers

* If no quiver is on, asha will gain critical shots.

* Only one quiver can be activated at the same time.

* Fire Quiver arrows will reset after dealing max damage or after expiring time, so at level 4, it'll be like this: +16, +32, +48, +64, +80, +16, +32..., and so on every shot.

* Nature Quiver (Nature Arrows) will just apply a debuff revealing the enemy like some kind of truesight, it'll be able to use invis skills, yet he's gonna be visible, also losing the armor value stated.

Level 1: Gains Fire Quiver. 15% chance to critical strike for 1.1x damage.
Flaming Arrows - Lvl 1: every shot will cause 2 points of bonus damage, and every next shot will cause more and more damage after then, resets after 4 seconds and stacks up to 5 times (+10 damage cap).

Level 2: Gains Poison Quiver. 15% chance to critical strike for 1.2x damage.
Flaming Arrows – Lvl 2: every shot will cause 4 points of bonus damage, and every next shot will cause more and more damage after then, resets after 4 seconds and stacks up to 5 times (+20 damage cap).
Poison Arrows – Lvl 1: every shot will cause 6 bonus damage per second and will slow the enemy MS by 10% (MS slow doesn’t stack), lasts 2 seconds.

Level 3: Gains Nature Quiver. 15% chance to critical strike for 1.3x damage.
Flaming Arrows – Lvl 3: every shot will cause 8 points of bonus damage, and every next shot will cause more and more damage after then, resets after 4 seconds and stacks up to 5 times (+40 damage cap).
Poison Arrows – Lvl 2: every shot will cause 7 bonus damage per second and will slow the enemy MS by 15% (MS slow doesn’t stack), lasts 2.50 seconds.
Nature Arrows – Lvl 1: Every attack will cause a parasite infection, reducing resistance. Lowering armor by 1 per hit, stacks 4 times, after a full stack, target won't be able to become invisible for the duration of the effect. Effect lasts 5 seconds.

Level 4: Upgrades all Quivers. 15% chance to critical strike for 1.4x damage.
Flaming Arrows – Lvl 4: every shot will cause 16 points of bonus damage, and every next shot will cause more and more damage after then, resets after 4 seconds and stacks up to 5 times (+80 damage cap).
Poison Arrows – Lvl 3: every shot will cause 8 bonus damage per second and will slow the enemy MS by 20% (MS slow doesn’t stack), lasts 3 seconds.
Nature Arrows – Lvl 2: Every attack will cause a parasite infection, reducing resistance. Lowering armor by 2 per hit, stacks 4 times, after a full stack, target won't be able to become invisible for the duration of the effect. Effect lasts 5 seconds.
 
I really like it. I love heroes that are a bit intricate, forcing the user to think before acting. But the nature arrows could be made a little more natural. Plus armor reduction is so boring and can be quite imbalanced. Maybe something like this:

Nature arrows
Every attack will cause a parasite infection, reducing resistance. Increases damage taken by 6%, stacking up to 4 times. After a full stack wines and roots sprout out of the parasite, entangling the target, immobilising it and dealing 12 Damage per Second. Effect lasts 5 seconds.

You can change this now in User CP.
i love the idea of having an ability that alters with things the user uses :)

* Fire Quiver arrows will reset after dealing max damage or after expiring time, so at level 4, it'll be like this: +16, +32, +48, +64, +80, +16, +32..., and so on every shot.
D: so much better than "flaming arrows - does bonus fire damage"

oh, and btw, i also really like the alternate for having a quiver
"* If no quiver is on, asha will gain critical shots."
give it a much more "covered" feel ^^ as if its beneficial in more than one way

You read that in 2mins? =/
Yes, I did, I'm a very fast reader, believe me. But the abilities are unnecessarily convoluted with superfluous effects. Anything that takes more than 2 lines to explain is pushing it - keep it simple, stupid! KISS! :)

EDIT: I'm not saying exchangeable abilities are bad - quite the contrary! - but shave off some of the secondary effects. Changing quivers is awesome, and I think you don't really need more than 1 effect on each, be it damage or poison or some terciary mechanic...

Hmm i dont know that could be VERY imba in my map. Movement is a bit issue, if you cant move you get surrouned by units and die. =/

Thanks for all the feedback :)

Now i just need to learn how to code them =/

Anyone here got an idea on how to code this? Im busy reading a tutorial about Boolean use right now i think this is the easiest way.

Great concepts!! Very original. I love the idea of turning quivers on and off, to get bonus effects either way. Definitely allows the player to be more tactical. This gives me some interesting ideas for my Ranger.

How does the Flaming Arrows work though? Your description was kind of confusing.

Would the Quivers be 3 separate abilities, or just 1 ability?

I'll just throw this out there as an idea, I don't know if I like it or if it would work, but what if your Quivers ability was an Auto-cast ability with 1 second cooldown, and each time it is cast, it will select randomly which type of arrow to fire (Flaming, Nature, Poison)? Or if there is a way for the player to cycle through the type of Arrow so that it is not random?

In League of Legends there is a hero who has an ability kind of like this. When he toggles it on, it cycles through 3 different options, and the player hits the hotkey to select the option he wants. Is this how you are imagining it to be? Or is there just 3 separate abilities?

It would increase the units damage. It will work like Firelords Incinerate. It will add bonus damage for each attack to the target. It will increase with each attack.

You will learn a single ability but gain 3 abilities.

I like it when the player can select so he can see which is best for the situation.

sorry for saying this, but...
If I understood right, this hero totally boring.
this is like one of those stupid heroes that you play with your hand in the mouse and no hand in the keyboard.
this is very similar to drow ranger, you add an orb to your attack and then starts shooting as a mindless player and hope you can kill the target.
If those are the only spells of her...you are wasting 3 good orb effect ideas in the same hero.

what im trying to say is:
the 3 orb effects you created are awesome, but the combination of all 3 in the same hero makes it one stupid hero. think on it.

That is 2 abilities. I havent thought of other abilties yet. I think that my poll will tell the tale for now. Once i make her i might make a new poll with a test map for her.

While I do see your point, I disagree. Toggling a single ability on/off (Drow) is not the same as choosing between 4 distinct abilities to use in different situations.

here are some of the code:

JASS:
function quiver takes nothing returns nothing
    return GetUnitAbilityLevel(GetAttacker(), quiverability) > 0
endfunction

function firearrow takes integer times returns real
    local integer times2
    local integer total = 1
    loop
        set total = total * 2
        set times2 = times2 + 1
        exitwhen(times2 == times)
    endloop
    return total
endfunction

function Trig_Quivers_Actions takes nothing returns nothing
    globals
        integer arrow //this has values of 0,1,2,3 refering to None, Fire, Poison, Nature
    endglobals
    local unit target = GetTriggerUnit()
    local unit attacker = GetAttacker()
    local real crit = 0.15 //crit chance
    local real abilitylvl //level of ability
    local real damage //damage of attack
    local real fadamage = 1 //damage of fire arrow attack
    loop
    set abilitylvl = GetUnitAbilityLevel(GetAttacker(), quiverability)
        if(arrow == 0)then //no quiver
            if(GetRandomReal(0.00, 1.00) < crit)then
                set damage = GetEventDamage() * 0.1 * abilitylvl
                call UnitDamageTarget(attacker, target, damage, true, true, Typeofattack, Typeofdamage, Typeofweapon)
            endif
        elseif(arrow == 1)then //fire quiver
            set fadamage = fadamage * function firearrow(abilitylvl)
            call UnitDamageTarget(attacker, target, fadamage, true, true, Typeofattack, Typeofdamage, Typeofweapon)
            if(fadamage == 4)then
                set fadamage = 0
            endif
            set fadamage = fadamage + 1
        elseif(arrow == 2)then //poison quiver
        else //nature quiver
        endif
    endloop
endfunction

//===========================================================================
function InitTrig_Quivers takes nothing returns nothing
    set gg_trg_Quivers = CreateTrigger(  )
    call TriggerRegisterAnyUnitEventBJ(gg_trg_Quivers, EVENT_PLAYER_UNIT_ATTACKED)
    call TriggerAddCondition(gg_trg_Quivers, Condition(function quiver))
    call TriggerAddAction( gg_trg_Quivers, function Trig_Quivers_Actions )
endfunction


Make a timer to the fire arrow and a trigger which changes the arrow variable and then poison and nature arrow and the quiver skill should be finished

I won´t use the 4 abilities in combat, you will only choose the best orb and start shooting.

You would need to use all of them. They will have effects for multiple occasions. Like if your chasing a hero will you still use fire damage when you could rather slow them? If you said yes to the last one, dont reply.

exactly like drow ranger...
you use life steal on combat and turn on frost arrows when the target is running. This quite a mindless hero.

    Plus I'm confident it's only one of my bosses, the other owner is pretty cool. But I don't think he's the one that has as much control over executive decisions
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
