Need ideas: Druid abilities

Hello! I'm making a map where up to 8 druids battle each other either as two teams (death match/capture the flag/hold the relic for a certain time) or FFA. The druids have three forms: Bear Form, Cat Form and normal form (caster form). I need spell abilities for this, the only requierment is that they fit the druid concept and requier skill (I.E not a storm bolt based ability since that's just click on the enemy).

Abilities so far:

Wrath: Sends an enchanted bird at the target location, dealing 50 damage to the first enemy it hits. (caster form)

Starfall: Calls down a falling star after 2 sec at the target location, dealing damage to and stunning any enemy caught in the AoE. (caster form)

Charge: Charges forward at great speed, dealing damage, and knocking back any enemy that crosses the Druids path. (Bear Form)

Dash: Increases movement speed by 100%. Only works while in cat form. (Cat Form)

Numbers are not interesting as they can be tweaked later on, just need some good concepts :) And remember that all abilities should requier skill to use! Thanks in advance, +rep if you come up with a good idea :)

How about spawning poisonous thorn bushes.
You select an area and bushes will grow their which attack enemies and poison them.
These bushes will start out small and deal only little damage but the longer they stay the stronger they will get until they are a big bush of thorns. They might as well reduce the movement speed of units nearby.

Or summoning a swarm of insects which are uncontrollable (like the tornado) and wander around hitting enemies.

why not make a spell like that:
name: not sure maybe sth like
requirements : bear form
it marks an AOE area (I believe it would fit to be about 800-1200) around the casters casting point (doesn't follow the caster) for about 5 sec. and while in this area and while in bear form (and probably while not holding the flag) you gain bonus movement speed damage but once there is an enemy unit within 100-50 range around you and u are still in the bear form, then you are immediately forced to attack this unit and continue attacking it without being able to change into an other form,charge will not knockback enemy units(or you will be unable to cast it) or move to a position the only thing you can do is to select an other enemy target to attack who is in this area you have created

The bear can have a boomerang.
You trow it. If it hits something in its path will stop and deal damage (if is an enemy unit.)
If not, it will come back to your position and stop.
When you throw the boomerang the skill will be removed and only able to use it when you pick up the boomerang (this happens when you get close to it.)
You allso can make the boomerangs echangables. So you can pick upp other´s boomerangs (only when they stop ) you can
collect more than 1 boomerang. Or even better, you can make a skill that "caches" a boomerang in a X radius around you. So if you are skillful enough you can catch the boomerangs in the air, before they hit you. OBvious the skill must have a Cold Down to avoid the user to repeatedly use it.
So you can throw all the boomerangs you have (the skill can have no cold down).
Just an idea! :p
Sorry for my english, is my second Lenguage.

    @midnight8 how is it looking
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, me, wife and her friend thaty traveled with us all have covid, seems to be winding down some for me at least. Felt like complete shit, been sleeping a lot, just bieng lazy as hell. I feel like that today has probably been like 11 or 12 days since exposure. Have not had any fever today, and have not taken any meds, so hopefully by monday or tuesday I will be good to go, sadly have passed it on to our teen son, I guess that was pretty much unavoidable
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hope you get to feeling better and get vaccinated my friend
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I will at some point, but so many vaccinated people still getting it. One of the bands we watch in vegas, all 4 had been vaccinated and are now positive.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Symptoms?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think the symptoms are typically less severe if previously vaccinated.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,

  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
