lacks 1 hero ability
please note that each hero has 5 abilities (1 ultimate) and one unita ability that will be given without learning

@magnaguard
or lets convert it to something more interesting
Strafe
>> Rushes OVER the target point in a circular trajectory, shooting arrows inside the target point

lets say the spell has 600 radius, that means the archer runs at the tip of the 600 radius towards the targeted point, and shoots arrows inside the targeted radius

@jonadrian
Impaling Fury (Active, Target Point)
Sends shards of stone/grass/water rising up in a line (impale-like effect) which flings enemy units in the air, stunning them when they reach the ground.

NOTE: This works like Impale. When you cast this spell, each Impale shard will take on the properties of the terrain it's in. In other words, if you cast Impaling Fury in an area with plenty of terrain variation, then you can Poison and Slow down enemies with the various shards, and more, making this spell effective.

[Please read Properties below]
i need to remake this
to make it more challenging, i decided to make it like:
gathers an element beneath jon (on where he is standing), then sending it towards the target point, creating pillars of *element* sending enemy units upward, dealing damage on take off, and landing, also stuns on land
reasons:
1. i made a really flexible system replacing blizzard's impale, like dota did, but i dont think that this system is more flexible than dota's system, because i can control the special effect, radius, offset and stuffs like that, with this, i can make something normal impale to hulk's earth smash thingy, thats why i thought, that i can make use of this system into jonadrian's imapling fury, so that i can save time and some space for it

2. i think it would be more challenging if the player needs to memorize each and every aspect of the spell, not like, cast it here, apply some random status without knowing how did it work, kill enemy, instead of look! grassy terrain, stand there to poison enemy, look! watery terrain, stand there to slow enemy, look! sandy beaches, stand there to stun enemy

although you guys have really nice ideas, but i have limitations, thats why i need to remake some stuffs to catch up to my limitations, but this doesnt mean, i cant make spells that i havent made before, i am learning while modding, and nice spells isnt the key to hero balancing which is not the key to a great map

thanks for the ideas, keep it up, after adding 4 heroes (1 each tavern), maybe i need to work on the items

forgot something, and yeah, also please add the origin of the hero (beholders or defiled)

1st spell - earth slam
slams the earth towards the target point, dealing half damage to units and structures, throwing affected enemy units upward, dealing another half damage on land and stuns them for 1 second

-if played by some experienced mappers, they can say the spell was just based off on impale, but its not, its a system i made (a flexible system, like dota's impale), i inteded to make this, so that any impale based ability will no longer conflict to another impale based ability (not stunning and dealing damage if the unit is still stunned by another impale ability)

2nd spell - Force Throw
picks a unit around 250 range of Titan, throwing it to the target unit, stunning them and dealing damage if they are both enemies of titan, automatically aborts (cancelling the issued order, and ordering the unit to key in the hotkey again, making it like normal blizzard spells when the target is invalid) when there is no unit to be throwed

this is not toss from dota, it simply slides the picked unit to the target unit, actually, it will home to the target unit, then deals damage and stunning them both if they are enemies of titan, the appearance is really sucky right now, i need to improve it, making the picked unit fly to the target, which means, another research for me because i dont know how to use parabolas :shy:

need spell ideas for the titan's stomp and spin animation, i need to make use of all available animations for the model, to use it at its maximum potential

i need ideas that will make use of these animations and not imitating another spell in blizzard or in my map (like thunder clap, warstomp, whirlwind, and bladestorm)

thanks

Parabolas? What the heck is that XD Is it the arc in which something is thrown at or something?
Anyway, since Force Throw and Earth Slam is pretty much to help you aim a harder to aim spell, try something like "Juggle".
Basically, this spell knock nearby enemy units away from you and deal a small amount of damage. However, if the enemy is in the air (by whatever means), you will make the bounce up, fall down and whenever the hit your spinning arms again, they will take more damage and fly up again XD. This would be fun to see!

Waaks! maybe ParabolaSystem could help. It's under [Tutorials and Resources]
thanks, ill look into it


the map now only consist of 3 custom skins or models, taking up 1300kb if not optimized, and i lets say about 800 - 1000 kb if optimized, i hope this will be the last on importing models or skins for heroes

hmmm.

EarthSlam. if the targets are flung upwards. are these units invulnerable?. if no, this is a remake of kunkka's torrent. instead of slow. it's stun. however as you say. IT is DIFFERENT. in a way. like "in a line."

Force Throw, because it's a throw and not a toss. the subject thrown will not "fly" and will simply thrown directly to the target. the effect would probably.. smoke. so that I can get the feeling of "wuuuushhhh!!!!". + knockback to any idiot that blocks the "medium".



The only problem i have so far in those two skills are. both are AoE disable.
for a hero with two disabling spells. THAT is AOE.
you may think not. but I think it's quite powerful, and a major pain in the game. IMBA + it's a strength type. or was it.?

@demotry
throw only stuns a single unit, double if the throwed unit is an enemy, stuns the target and the throwed unit
im remaking the force throw, making the unit fly instead of just sliding

got the spell working, just downloaded some reference demo maps submitted by members in wc3c.net and studied it, now the spell looks good, the throwed unit homes to the target, even if the target is moving and still maintaining the right arc

maybe ill make him the common knockback bash ability, or area passive knockback, i dont know...or if u have any idea on changing this to another unique one then thats great!

removing leap and whirlwind's invulnerability when casted

Titan is out, try him out
>> I might have had too high expectations, but he doesn't seem like his full potential. You got an awesome model for a cool hero, but you gave him lots of passives? His active skills, one being a battle shout basically, isn't fun to use. His slam is almost the same as the barbarian, and his toss is basically like tiny's.

..too much passives maybe?
dont like him too much now tough..

here's some ideas:

Toss >> your first idea was good, no parabola..
make it like this : pick up random unit, throw to direction and stun on collision.

Slam >> make it toss units to random direction...

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
