The damage done heals hero by 37.4% of the amount done to every target. When a unit is killed by this aura, the effects will become opposite for 1 second.

Extras:
If 5 units are affected, 187% percent of damage done globally will heal hero's health.
If 10 damage is done to every unit average, hero will be healed for 18 health per second.

The effect change time stacks.
Witch means that if our hero with his aura killed a creep and another one after half second the effect will last for 1,5 seconds from the beginning of the opposition.

The effect change is to heal enemies for the damage done previously and damage hero for 37.4% of healing done to everyone
It's like every enemy got this hero's ability, but with one target and hero takes damage from only one target.

Also the damage over time increasing is solely for the unit that gets affected.
This means that if 10 damage is done to someone who was 7 seconds affected, ~8 damage will be done to someone who was 2 seconds affected at the same time.

Data:
Damage: 15+3.25 per level
DoT increment +10% of current second's damage.

Advanced Description: This unit has an aura witch sticks to the ground for 4 seconds. When unit walks/runs it leaves a healing trail behind him that heals allies. So a new instance of aura can be created after 80-120 meters left from the previous position that placed the aura onto the ground.
Advanced Description 2: The aura has a base power and it grows for every tree that lives in 600 range.
Has a max cap of 10 trees, so an ability that shows the number of trees will be very good for the player.
Heal Power: 0.3% of current hp
Heal Bonus: +0.05-0.07-0.09.....% for every tree that is in range shown above.


EDIT:

About Feathershed you mean every time he casts he releases about 10 blades in each direction of 360 degrees, but if one is at melee range he takes damage from a single blade?

Simply put, every time you attack, your damage is increased by the respective value until another enemy within a 800 radius attacks.

Feathershed means a Fan of Knives-esque cast whenever you attack or cast a spell. If an enemy attacks or cast a spell on another unit at melee range, it also takes that damage.

By the time you learn level 4, most units will deal way more than that per attack, and anyway it mainly affects melee units (mostly tankers). Ranged units just need to be careful when attacking or casting spells.

Name: The Gathering
Type: Multiple - [Instant, Channeling] / [Unit Target]
Targets: Multiple - [Dead] / [Enemy, Friend, Organic]
Description: The caster begins to summon the spirits of the dead in an area around it. From the moment of casting and every second afterward to a maximum of 10 seconds, the Area of Effect expands by 150 and from any dead units within it will appear a spirit that orbits the caster, maintaining the same distance. When the caster stops channeling, the instant ability is replaced with a unit-target ability, which allows you to direct a one of the summoned spirits into a target unit, damaging enemies and healing allies. Once all spirits are used up, the unit-target ability is again replaced with the channeling ability.
Base AoE: 300/400/500
Damage/Heal: 45/60/75

Excluding me and NoobImbaPro, Wolfieeiflow's is the only other post on this page. Are your idea fountains really that dry?

This spell is from Dota, but a little changed,
Spell Name : Berserk Strike
Gui, Jass, vJass are welcome. As you wish
Mui of course
Targets : Enemy, ground
Description : Runs to a target, for purchasing Berserk Strike dealing 60% of target's max life, the hero is damaged by 50% of the hero max life. Also the target is slowed by 50%.
Other Marks : The Cast range of spell is 700.
The hero runs till the distance between target and hero becomes 150, then Berserk Strike!
While running, the hero's must be "walk" animation. Maybe to increase speed of animation to make it realistic, that the hero is really running I don't want stand animation, because it's not realistic. So animation is the important part of spell. And it's possible, because Dota uses it!
If the distance between the hero and target becomes greater than 1000, then running to the target is stopped
For testing use the model " Upgraded headhunter - Berserker Troll"
And please Walk animation!

I haven't been on the forum for a while, so I guess that comes into the question a little.

Name: Disruption
Type: Single Unit Target
Targets: Enemy
Description: Disrupts the flow of energy in and out of a target enemy unit. The target becomes unaffected by magic, and its health and mana will not increase. During this period, it cannot cast spells, nor will its auras have any effect. Purges the target of all buffs upon casting, thus destroying any summoned units.
Duration: 3/5/7/9 seconds

Name: Destiny Bond
Type: Single Unit Target, Channeling
Targets: Organic
Description: The caster ties its fate to the target. While the caster maintains channeling, any healing or damage it takes or spells cast on it will have their effects replicated by the caster onto the target. If the caster dies while channeling, it will kill the target.
Duration: 15/20/25 seconds

Name: Authority
Type: Active + Passive Effects
Targets: Non-Hero, Friend/Enemy
Description: The caster uses its authoritative powers on a target unit. Enemies are left stunned by the encounter, whereas allies will be placed under your control and obey all your commands. Passively, allied non-hero units will attempt to show off whenever you are in range, dealing extra damage upon attacks. Every improved attack increases the damage bonus to the other units until a certain limit is reached.
Stun Duration: 0.5/1/1.5/2
Passive AoE: 900
Damage bonus per instance: 1/2/3/4
Damage bonus limit: 10/20/30/40

Basically the passive part of Authority works like this: Non-hero allied units in a 900 AoE around you have 1/2/3/4 bonus damage. With each unit that attacks, the damage bonus increases incrementally until the limit is reached. It can be described as a damage aura that improves with each allied unit that attacks.

Name: Duel Chalenge
Type: Single unit target, active
Targets: Enemy, Hero
Description: Chalenge a enemy hero to Duel. If the chaleged hero declines the duel, recives damage and/or a penalty of gold. If he accept, the duel starts. While in duel, both the caster and the target, get unable to target any thing else than the other. Allies of both cannot damage/assist the heroes in duel. An arena is created and they both cannot exit it until the duel finishes. The duel finishes when one of the heroes die or if the time is over. The winning hero will be full healed while the other will have extra resurrection time as penalty. If draw they both stays the wey they are before the duel starts.

Can be a ultimate or a regular skill. But it has to have more than one level.
On each lvl increase, the damage/gold penalty if declines and the resurrection penalty.
On grater lvls it can add a buff for the winner besides healing him.

I didnt specify the "amounts" of damage/gold penalty/duration/buff efect/ etc... Because every map is different.
In my mind i see, when the duel starts all units in the area of the arena will be moved out side and/or paused (like observers). The arena will be delimited with some kind of fence. The heroes placed one in each corner and a timer says: 3... 2... 1... GO!(until then they are paused). And the duel starts.
