Tooltip Layout

This may be one of the most pathetic threads started but...

I need a new and cool tooltip layout for my spells in a map I am working on.
All spells will be affected by your stats and you will choose what stats you want to increase when your hero levels.
I do not want to use the usual WC3/DotA layout:
Thunderclap
Slams the ground, dealing 60 damage to nearby enemy land units
and slowing their movement by 50% and attack rate by 50%.
And I do not want to make a list tooltip:
Thunderclap
Target: AoE, Enemies
Effect: Attack rate and Movment speed reduced
Cooldown: 6 seconds

Description:
Slams the ground, dealing 60 damage to nearby enemy land units
and slowing their movement by 50% and attack rate by 50%.
I have seen a couple of really neat tooltips but I don't want to "steal" them.
Do you guys have any ideas/suggestions you want to share?
If a certain piece of the text should be in a different colour please specify where and what colour.

You can change this now in User CP.
Well, I personally use WC3's format for abilities (not upgrades) with the cooldown highlighted in lime green. Why don't you like WC3's format? Maybe that'll help people to give you what you want. Also, the number of levels might help. Give us your most complicated skill (the one with most stats and stat changes when upgraded) so we can try to make that one look nice.

I try to write my descriptions clear and streamlined, even with numbers.
If something needs more explaining, i put it on another line.
If there are really important numbers, like if they affect gameplay if they change, I'll list them.

Death Bolt
Clea fires a powerful arrow of concentrated shadow magic, dealing 100 magic damage
to units in a line and infecting them with Leeching Arrow.

Units already infected will take 150% of the damage.

Cast Range : 700
Cooldown : 6 seconds.

Well my map is actually in the "might happen" phase right now so I dont have that many skills etc. Here is one of skills I want to create:
Affliction
The caster beshrews a terrible curse upon enemies in an area, causing them to take 50% increased damage for 20 seconds. Afflicted units will damage each other for 20 base damage plus Intelligence if they die.
And here is another one:
Self Combustion
The Paragon sets his armor on fire, damaging himself and all enemies around him. The bigger the difference in armor between the Paragon and the enemy, the greater is the damage caused. Deals 10 damage a second to the Paragon and 15 base damage plus 15 x Armor difference. If the enemy has greater armor then the Paragon he will not be damaged.
The reason I don't like the standard WC3 layout is that it so plain. No colours no nothing. ^^

Edit: I could always use 13lade619's idea if I can't come up with anything else.

    Does reforged require the port forwarding? Is that even still a thing?

    I do not think that is a thing anymore

    Battle.net is different now and I do not think they are using the same network code

    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
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    More serious doesn't necessarily mean it's more interesting. :(
  • The Helper The Helper:
    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:
    any of the peeps in here run youtube channels? Figure of all the peeps in this forum, got to be some other geeks like me with channels
  • Ghan Ghan:

    I can say I know someone that uploaded a youtube video :)
  • jonas jonas:
    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
