this might help... there is a map somewhere called something like "extreme candy war" with an aura ability that when it is clicked changes the aura type (ex. devotion aura, command aura, unholy aura) i dont think they were the auras but it had three of them and using the ability toggled through them.

Minecraft. :D
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.
:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

No its not. It's totally different. I'm not gonna get into a Dota discussion and ruin the thread, but they are very different.

>You will only choose the best orb and start shooting

And how is this any different from any other hero or spell ever invented? You use what the situation calls for. :nuts:

I am the very model of a modern major general!
I like the Quiver Ability :D One Question though, How will the player select the different types after he as learned the ability?

I really liked your skill concept. Enchanted Quivers makes the hero very versatile, I really liked it.

Mindless? Well firstly, this isn't like Drow Ranger, and I'll stop here because I don't want to make a list of what's different. Secondly, it's not for you to decide what ability suits Hex's hero. Different heroes have different themes. Boring heroes may appear fun to others, so it's up to personal preferences. There's no such thing as a "mindless" hero unless everyone in this globe agrees it is "mindless". Thirdly, rather than saying that the hero is "mindless", comment on the skill and not criticize the skill itself. There's a big difference.

Example of commenting on a skill:
I liked your spell. Unique idea, however I believe in my viewpoint, too much orb effects may be a bit complicated. May I suggest you to either change to 2 Quiver arrows instead of 3? Perhaps some people may choose to use their preferred orb effect, but that's fine, since it's up to individual preference, and that's where the versatility of this hero comes in.

Example of criticizing on a skill:
Nah, boring hero. I find this very similar to DoTA's Drow, attack and attack. And you just change to lifesteal when attacking and frost arrows when chasing. Mindless hero as I will only choose the best orb to take effect.

The criticize example is based on your words on this hero. Do you see the difference? Criticisms are fine, but I believe you have to be detailed on it and not just say "it's a mindless hero". Don't just say "exactly same as drow". We don't care if you have a grudge against DoTA or whatever, just state clearly WHY instead of saying "OH! ITS A COPY OF ANOTHER HERO WHICH I HATE". A difference between a comment and a criticism is the tone. End of story.

I like the Quiver Ability :D One Question though, How will the player select the different types after he as learned the ability?
The player simply clicks the ability and it will swap icons. The icon will change colour.

I sorta though this thread would have died by now =/
Still thanks for all the feedback.

    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

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    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
