There's only 1 lane which is mid lane and forest at top and bottom, and I need ideas for spells and heroes. Anybody willing to help me with it? I will give credits to those who help me.

If you're looking for hero ideas, I suggest the following site:
http://www.dotastrategy.com/list_heroideas.html

It is also hard for people to make suggestions for hero ideas because you haven't given us any details. What I mean by that is that you haven't given us the game type, how many heroes you plan to have in your map, the theme of the map, etc etc. All of the aforementioned things can affect how many and what sorts of suggestions you get.

Never-the-less, here's a hero I was going to use for one of my old maps which I never finished:

Name: Warlock

Abilities:
Soul Drain
This isn't one of my abilities. I just chucked it on my hero because it fit.

Crippling Curse
Wreaths an enemy unit in magical flames which cause damage and slow movement speed. Damage done and amount by which movement is slowed increases with each level.

E.g.
Level 1 - Does 4 damage/second. Slows Movement speed by 5%. Lasts 10 seconds.
Level 2 - Does 8 damage/second. Slows movement speed by 10%. Lasts 15 seconds.
Level 3 - Does 12 damage/second. Slows movement speed by 15%. Lasts 20 seconds

Life Blood Aura
Once the Warlock has killed a certain number of units, a number of skeleton warriors equal to the number of units killed are summoned at the position of the Warlock. The number of units that the warlock is required to kill is determined by the current level of the ability learned by the hero.

E.g.
Level 1 - Must kill 3 units. Spawns 3 Skeleton Warriors.
Level 2 - Must kill 5 units . Spawns 3 Skeleton Warriors and 2 Skeleton Archers.
Level 3 - Must kill 10 units. Spawns 6 Skeleton Warriors and 4 Skeleton Archers.

Mass Soul Burn [Ultimate]
Burns all units withing a range of 700 of the Warlock. A percentages of the damage dealt to the hero.

NB: I originally designed this ability to have 3 - 5 levels, so in my map, the damage dealt and the percentage health returned to the warlock differed with the level.

Its like Hero Defense type, heroes have to defend their tower and a main building. Max of 10 players. 5 of each side of the team.

Given that, you are going to want a mix of both defensive and offensive heroes. If you want to make it very team orientated and potentially more difficult, I reckon you're going to need a very clear mix of offensive and defensive heroes.

e.g. a very basic example would be to have a tank hero that has a lot of offensive spells but who is susceptible to damage (i.e. doesn't have high defense/has low health regen/etc etc) and then have a defensive/passive class which offers healing and buffs and whatnot.

I reckon that could work really well considering it's a hero defense game.

I have an idea of a spell but i dont know what skill to base on, 75 damage with 10 damage per second and 25% movement speed slow for 5 seconds.

Well if the spell has missile art, then you could base it off a spell like the Death Knight's "Death Coil" and then trigger the rest of the spell (i.e. use a trigger to give the unit a buff that slows movement speed or something like that)

I wish I had the commitment and the time. But if you need any help (e.g. with spells, GUI triggers and stuff), don't hesitate to let me know and I'll help you if and how I can.

    Lately, news aren't as enticing as they seemed. Or maybe I'm getting old and desensitized.
  • jonas jonas:
    I think news are more serious recently

    More serious doesn't necessarily mean it's more interesting. :(

    I find that news.google.com has lots of interesting science stuff going on and the Space X stuff with Starship is super cool too
  • The Helper The Helper:
    plus the boring company and physics stuff happening now but I am more into the science now but there is still some crazy news I see out there using Reddit as a news source though and aggregate services like news.google and stuff and put AP in there I always read the news and yes sometimes it is not as interesting as others
  • The Helper The Helper:
    At some point I am going to look at Xenforo and see if it integrates with Hubspot at all. Would love to look at forum under a full marketing account in Hubspot since I have access to that stuff with my current gig
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Kind of surprised it wouldn't have its own forum product offering.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    That said, when Blizzard switched forum software, they went with Discourse, not xenForo.
  • jonas jonas:
    I think news.google shows you personalized news
  • midnight8 midnight8:

    A friend of mine has a channel where he uploads some of the crazy machines he has built. Like when he plugged an electric motor into a 3d printed gearbox, attached it to his bycicle and then drove 50mph with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You should post a link to his channel in General Discussion I would definitely check it out
