BIG PROJECT!!! Request mass hero abilities/spells

Not open for further replies.
Level 1
Apr 24, 2004
This is for anybody willing to undertake a huge project. I'm currently with a few other people making a campaign and we all suddenly decided we should go with custom hero abilities. We currently are taking up all the time with the campaign and storyline creation (we're talking twice as big as a regular wc3 campaign at least) and none of us has any time to create our spells. Here's a list of the abilities we need.

Note: All regular spells have a cooldown of 10 seconds, unless otherwise stated
All ultimate spells have a cooldown of 180 seconds, unless otherwise stated

Hero 1:

1. Solidarity Aura - Reduces damage from Spells and Ranged Attacks.
Level 1: Reduces damage by 5%
Level 2: Reduces damage by 10%
Level 3: Reduces damage by 15%

2. Copy of the Charge Spell, that can be modified to be used freely throughout a campaign and multiple maps, as we need it to be saved to a cache with a character. Also, it would be greatly appreciated if we can get it modified with the following stats:
Level 1: 200 damage, 4 second stun
Level 2: 400 damage, 6 second stun
Level 3: 600 damage, 8 second stun

3. Battle Fury: For a set amount of time, causes the Hero to increase attack speed with each successful hit, but decrease to normal attack speed when the hero misses
Level 1: 30 seconds, 3% attack speed per hit
Level 2: 45 seconds, 5% attack speed per hit
Level 3: 60 seconds, 7% attack speed per hit
Mana: 150

Ultimate: Executioner’s Blade: The next attack made by the Hero kills the unit that was attacked. Can’t be used on Heroes, or Creeps that are flying.
Mana: 250

Hero 2:

1. Mystic Circle: The Hero cannot be targeted by Spells for a set amount of time. The Hero can still Attack and cast spells, however.
Level 1: 10 Seconds
Level 2: 20 Seconds
Level 3: 30 seconds
Mana: 125

2. Mystic Cross: An enemy unit is imprinted with the sign of the Cross, halving the damage it deals for a set amount of time
Level 1: 20 seconds
Level 2: 40 seconds
Level 3: 60 seconds
Mana: 100

3. Spirit Blast: The Hero sends a beam of pure white energy at the enemy, damaging it and healing the hero
Level 1: 100 damage, 50HP healed
Level 2: 200 damage: 100HP healed
Level 3: 300 damage: 150HP healed
Mana: 125

Ultimate: Wrath of Heaven: All enemy units in the targeted area have second thoughts and refuse to attack your units for 60 seconds, after which they take 500 damage
Range: 600
Mana: 300

Hero 3

1. The Summons: The Hero teleports units from other areas to him. Pretty much the same as Starcraft’s Recall spell, but smaller
Level 1: 1 unit
Level 2: 2 units
Level 3: 3 units
Mana: 150
Note: To have this spell work, it may be an idea to use the idea from Chain Lightning, and have the spell jump to nearby units for teleportation for levels 2 and 3.

2. Essence Aura: Increases the damage and summon time of summoned units
Level 1: 5% damage, 10 seconds
Level 2: 10% damage, 20 seconds
Level 3: 15% damage, 30 seconds

3. Summon Judge: Summons a Judge for a period of time:
Level 1: 60 seconds
Level 2: 120 seconds
Level 3: 180 seconds
Mana: 175
Note: The Judge is a unit that currently is in creation, so anybody willing to create this spell should use a Frost Revenant as the unit and then show me how to change it, or if anybody e-mails me (bottom of thread) I’ll be happy to e-mail a map with the unit

Ultimate: Light of Creation: For 3 minutes, a Spirit Elemental will be summoned at a targeted Town Hall every 15 seconds.
Mana: 400
Note: Same as above, since we decided not to make the units until we knew the spell was going ahead. Anyone who creates this spell should use a Water Elemental as the unit and then show me how to change it, or if anybody e-mails me (bottom of thread) I’ll be happy to e-mail a map with the unit

Hero 4:

1. Cloud of Ash: A Cloud of Ash is created over an area for a set amount of time, making the units inside invisible while in it. Spells cannot be casted on units while inside the Cloud.

This is a large project, and everybody currently involved in this campaign is praying that there are people kind enough out there to contribute, even if it is just a single spell. I've left some things out (such as art, how it operates etc.) because I feel that people who wish to make these spells should try and make them how they feel the spell should look. If you wish to enquire about anything concerning these spells, or wish to submit completed spells, send them to [email protected]. With the completed spells, it would be great if a little notepad document or something would be supplemented with how the spells work, and an easy way of changing things such as referenced units and values (Summon Judge and Light of Creation, respectively). Anybody who submits a completed spell shall have their name, and what they did mentioned in the credits. Also, the campaign shall be posted on the site once it is completed, so the spells shall help to make it a truly individual creation.
