Destiny Battle v0.22

Submitted by AdamMighty
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
3/22/20 - Hello fellow Destiny Battle Enthusiasts! I am truly humbled at the response from the community and those who have reached out to me in the past decade about Destiny Battle. After a decade, I am flattered that folks are still enjoying my map so much. With the launch of Reforged and a bit of more free time, I figured the least I could do was spend some time cleaning up the map after a brief 10 year hiatus. ;)

It has taken quite a bit of time to reacclimate myself to the map, as well as figure out what I was thinking a decade ago with triggers and such, but slowly I am working towards getting Destiny Battle in a much better place. In addition to fixing many of the crashes and memory leaks, I have been working at making the game all around better from a gameplay standpoint. In the months going forward, I hope to deliver the best, most stable version of Destiny Battle for everyone to enjoy.

Special Thanks to Setokaiva who has kept the map alive with his own discord community ( Join the Destiny Battle Discord Server! ). If you are interested in following development, feel free to join our little community. Thanks again for your interest, and I hope to see you in game sometime!
- Adam (Arathil)

v0.22 Change Notes located at the bottom of this description


======================================================


Destiny Battle is a Hero Siege map oriented around teamwork and skill. Unlike the others however, Destiny Battle incorporates many RPG-like features and randomization to make each game different. Version v0.20j Includes..

- 30 Heroes, custom designed, all with custom spells and abilities. Each features their own strengths and weaknesses which must be carefully used with your teammates.

- Several Feats, which can be trained to make your hero more suited to your play style.

- Hundreds of custom items, all carefully designed, many with scripted effects. The Rarity Tier system ensures that each rare item drop is exciting and unique. Also includes rare sets, that can be gathered to further increase the power with set bonuses.

- Scrolls which drop during the game which teach your hero new skills and spells, making your hero your own creation.

- Currently, v0.22 includes thirty rounds, many with custom objectives and devious traps to test your mettle.

- A unique bonus system which rewards good cooperation and good play. Saved an ally by healing them with a clutch heal? That's a bonus!

- A custom weather system that can either bolster or hinder you. Beware the rainstorms that make you suffer miss chances, but welcome the Healing Winds that grants bonus regeneration. Over 20 different weathers!

- A few various soundtracks make important moments even more exciting.

- Auto-balancing difficulty that adjusts to the amount of players you have. Only four people? No problem! Got a whole crew? The game will adjust itself.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

So you think you have what it takes to defeat Lord Adomach? Go ahead, take a few of your closest companions and challenge him and his enemy hordes.

RECOMMENDED PLAYERS: 4-8.
AVERAGE PLAYTIME: 30m-3h (!)
DIFFICULTY: Hard

I hope you enjoy my creation as much as I have enjoyed making it. If you have any comments, concerns, or pesky bug reports, I welcome any comments/criticism on the official discord at Join the Destiny Battle Discord Server! .

*!* Important: Destiny Battle is Open Source, meaning the map is not protected, and you can look/learn from it. HOWEVER, please do not take this as an open invitation to delete my name and claim it as your own. I worked hard on this map for your enjoyment, and I take plagerism seriously. Thanks! *!*

Cheers!
Arathil

V0.22 CHANGELOG:

HERO CHANGES:
=================================================

CLERIC OF ORDER:

Author Note: For being the first hero designed, the Cleric of Order was still surprisingly useful, though this came mostly from his Mystic Renewal Spell bouncing all over the map in the late game. I rebalanced Mystic Renewal to be a more useful tool in the early game while neutering the bounce capability of the late game slightly. The cleric's old ultimate on the other hand was a laggy, buggy mess which, while interesting, did not usually help the heroes very much. I created a new ultimate that should work well with his invulnerability/healing kit to provide some interesting synergy opportunities while having a more immediate impact on dangerous waves or bosses.

Power Word Binding:
- Now Lasts 20/30/40/60 seconds, down from 40/45/50/60 seconds. Now inflicts 5 damage per second of duration.
- Mana Cost increased to 40.
- Cooldown reduced to 5 seconds. (2.5 at Rank 5)
- Duration reduced to .5 seconds on bosses.
- Damage scales with Magic Power. (1 damage/sec per 10 Magic Power)

Mark of Order:
- Now Lasts 5/8/10/12/15 seconds, down from 8/10/12/14/15 seconds.
- Cooldown reduced to 30 seconds, down from 60 seconds.
- Mana Cost reduced at lower ranks to 50/75/100, down from 100/100/100.

Mystic Renewal:
- Now Heals 200/300/400/450/500 damage, up from 100/175/225/300/350.
- Now bounces to a maximum of three units.
- Mana Cost Increased to 100/150/200/225/250, up from 100 at all ranks.
- Healing scales with Healing Power. (10 extra healing to primary target per 1 healing power.)

Ultimate (Lv6) - Inversion has been changed.
OLD: Inversion - Return all enemies to their starting portals and slow them by a percentage.

NEW: Balance - The Cleric of Order realigns the cosmos, damaging all nearby enemies by a percentage.
Rank 1 - Nearby Enemies in a radius lose a percentage of health equal to half the difference between the Cleric's current health and their current health. Maximum Health loss of 25%. The enemies are slowed by 40% for 6 seconds.
Rank 2 - Maximum Health loss of 33%. The enemies are slowed by 60% for 6 seconds.
Rank 3 - Maximum Health loss of 50%. The enemies are slowed by 80% for 6 seconds.

=====================================================================================================

CLERIC OF THE SMALL FOLK:

Author Note: The Cleric of the Small Folk was a pretty well rounded hero that suffered from having an almost entirely useless ultimate. The old ultimate could trigger only once or twice a game if the player was unlucky, and didn't have much of a very engaging series of choices. I liked the mechanic of "luck" though, so I decided to keep the general ability and turn it into a guarenteed chance of happening. Additionally, I removed a few useless luck effects (Kill a single unit, burn enemy mana, etc) and replaced them with some more interesting variants. (Summon a bunch of temporary Smallfolk Warriors, Turn the Cleric into a Wrecking Ball for a few seconds, etc.)

Flurry of Slingstones:
- Damage increased to 70/90/110/130/150 damage, up from 30/60/80/100/100 damage.
- Now has a maximum amount of targets that increases with higher ranks. (3/4/5/6/7)
- Mana cost increased to 100 at later ranks, up from 80.
- Damage scales with Attack Power. (+1 damage per Attack Power)

Refresh:
- Now heals 200/300/400/500/600 health, up from 90/160/230/300/360.
- Mana cost increased to 70, up from 50.
- Cooldown increased to 8, up from 6.
- Healing scales with Healing Power. (+10 healing per Healing Power)

Unexpected Hero:
Rebalanced. In general, the ability now has lower flat damage scaling, but now includes a 5% chance to evade attacks.

Luck (Lv6) - Luck has been changed.
OLD: Luck - Very rarely causes a luck effect ranging from randomly recovering full health and other similar random effects.
NEW: Flip a Coin - When activated, causes a random lucky effect to occur. 120 Second Cooldown.
(The Old Luck had a paltry 10% chance to occur every 3 minutes of game time. This meant that a player could learn the ability and go an entire game without seeing it payoff. By guarenteeing this effect to occur, it gives the player an immediate effect.

Call On Fortune (Lv20) - Has been Changed.
OLD: Call On Fortune - Immediately triggers a lucky event.
NEW: Divine Luck - Unlocks the most powerful beneficial effects for the Cleric's Flip a Coin ability.

=====================================================================================================

Dwarven Axemaster:

Author Note: The Dwarven Axemaster's problem was that he was a strength hero who relied heavily upon his abilities dealing damage, so people were forced to take intelligence or mana boosting items to allow him to do it more often. This meant that his damage against bosses was pitiful, and his health/STR suffered as a result. I decided the best course of action for now was to lower the mana cost of his spells so folks didn't feel as though they had to focus on intelligence exclusively. This hero will have another pass coming, but I'm not entirely sure how I want to fix him up yet.

Axe Hurl:
- Mana Cost reduced to 50, down from 100.
- Now Scales with Attack Power.

Axe Rain:
- Mana Cost reduced to 75, down from 125.
- Now has a maximum of 10 targets.
- Now Scales with Attack Power.

=====================================================================================================

Monk of the Ebony Fist:

Author Note: The Monk of the Ebony Fist's kit wasn't particularly bad, just ineffective and in need of a buff. All of his abilities across the board were buffed, and I also removed his Return ability which didn't really fit well with him, as the monk should be avoiding taking damage. It has been replaced with a damage dealing passive that should lead to some fun explosive moments with Flurry of Blows.

Flurry of Blows:
- Duration increased to 4.5/6/7.5/9/10 seconds, up from 3.5/4/5/6/6.
- Mana Cost reduced to 60, down from 100.

Chakra Burst:
- Healing increased to 200/350/500/650/800, up from 100/200/300/400/400.
- Cooldown reduced to 90 seconds, down from 120 seconds.
- Healing boosted by Healing Power (+10 per Healing Power)

Return (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Return - Retaliate when struck for a flat damage amount.
NEW: Crescendo of Blows - Every 25th Attack will result in an explosion of power, dealing damage to everything around the monk equal to double his agility.

=====================================================================================================

Rogue of the Dark:

Author Note: The Rogue of the Dark has undergone some pretty substantial changes, as his old kit simply didn't do enough to make him worthwhile. I wanted to promote the playstyle of a stealth rogue running around the battlefield picking his targets, so I gave him a huge damage multiplier the longer he remains stalthed. Ideally, I want players to pop into a small amount of units and be able to dispatch them before retreating to safety. His new Dagger in the Dark Ultimate should allow him to also contribute meaningfully to a boss fight as well with some nasty burst damage.

Crippling Blow (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Crippling Blow - Deal damage to an enemy and stun them.
NEW: Murder - Kill a normal enemy instantly if it is not within 400 range of one of its allies. Otherwise, deal damage and stun the enemy for a few seconds.

Blind:
- Duration reduced to 10 seconds, down from 15 seconds.

Stealth (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Becomes Stealthed while not attacking.
NEW: Becomes stealthed while not attacking. Every two seconds the rogue remains stealthed, his next attack deals additional damage equal to his agility, stacking up to 5/10/15/20/25 times.

Assassinate (Lv6) - Has been changed.
OLD: Assassinate - Instantly kill a target under 10% HP when dealing damage.
NEW: Dagger in the Dark - Hurl a dagger at an enemy, dealing high damage, instantly resetting the cooldown on Murder, and immediately bringing the rogue to a full stack of Stealth stacks.

===========================================

Feral Archon:

Author Note: I wanted the Feral Archon to fill a role as a disruptive presence that could bounce around the map as needed to help struggling lanes. Savage Strike was a good primary, but wasn't nearly disruptive enough with only a 2 second stun. I also felt like the old Dimension Door simply didn't really have much use until it was able to to be used anywhere, so I added that to all ranks. I also wanted a teleporting Feral Archon Player to have an immediate tool to use when teleporting, so I added the Savage Strike cooldown reset to it. Finally, the old Ferocity was a boring and tired talent that didn't do much reliably. Building on the disruption archetype, I replaced it with trample which should allow for some fun "wrecking ball" moments for the Feral Archon.

Savage Strike:
- Mana Cost has been reduced to 75, down from 100.
- Stun Duration has been increased to 4 seconds, up from 2 seconds. (1 vs Bosses)
- Damage increased to 100/140/180/220/270, Up from 60/100/130/160/200.
- Damage Increases with Attack Power. (+1 Damage per Attack Power)

Dimension Door:
- Mana Cost reduced to 25, down from 50.
- Now has unlimited range at all ranks.
- Now resets the cooldown on Savage Strike when used.

Ferocity (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Gives the Feral Archon a chance to deal extra damage every attack.
NEW: Trample - Sends the Feral Archon into a frenzy, dealing damage to nearby enemies every second equal to the Archon's Strength and pushing them away from the Feral Archon. The Feral Archon has no collision while active.

Tantrum (Lv6) - Has been changed.
OLD: Deals damage to nearby enemies and stuns them for a duration.
NEW: The Archon throws a Battle Tantrum, growing in size

===========================================

Human Engineer:

Author Note: Ah the engineer... many a game has been won by abusing his limitless building capability. This hero has been a challenge to get right, and I have often thought about simply removing him from the game. However, he is consistently one of the most popular heroes played, so in the end, I kept him and thought long about how I could keep his core gameplay while ensuring his towers don't get out of control. I decided to limit how many buildings he can make while simultaneously allowing him to upgrade towers as he levels up. Additionally, I wanted to give the hero a variety of different towers for different situations in order to make him more interesting to play.

Construct Barricade (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Create a barricade with HP that can block enemies.
NEW: Construction - Each Rank unlocks new buildings that can be built.

Construct Blade Tower (Lv1) - Has been changed.
OLD: Create a tower that attacks nearby enemies.

- Amount restored increased to 150/300/450/600/750, up from 100/200/300/400/500.

Construct Mystic Tower (Lv6) - Has been changed.
OLD: Create a mystical tower that casts various spells.
NEW: Marvel of Engineering - Lets the engineer upgrade his buildings to the next tier.

===========================================

BUILDING CHANGES:
New Building: Auction House
- Can be built on any Building Plot in Vern. Every 3 minutes, will have a stock of two random rare set items and a random epic set item. Can be upgraded to carry higher level set items. Building multiple auction houses of the same level at different plots will increase the number of set items sold at EACH Auction House.

Building Changes: Artificier Post
- You no longer need to extract stones at the Artificier Post. Dropped stones will now simply be consumables to be clicked. You will still need to build an artificier post in order to have Artificer Stones to drop. In the future, you will be able to upgrade the artificier post further in order to have rarer stones drop.

Building Changed: Guard Post
- Guard Posts are now invulnerable and no longer attack.
- When Constructed, Guard Posts will cause allied units to spawn and garrison at different points in the city.
- Constructing additional Guard Posts will increase the amount of garrisoned units created each round.
- Up to Two Guard Posts are supported. (The second will spawn supporting archers instead of melee units.)

Building Changed: Dojo
- Dojos no longer sell skills. The skills the Dojo sold have been moved to the scroll 0 Table.
- You can purchase training at the Dojo. Training modifies all heroes stats by a certain amount. For example, Reflex training increases all heroes agility by 10.
- Only one training may be active at a time. If a new training is selected, the previous training boost goes away.
- Players may only purchase a single dojo.

13:39, 30th Oct 2008 VGsatomi: very decent defense map. This genre of map is always fun to play with a group. This map doesn't tweak or balance its self to suit the number of players present, which i saw as a big minus. Terrain is decent, and hero...

    Think you could decrease the file size a little?
    No way I'm gonna be able to get 9 players in, they'd leave before it's downlaoded.

    The best custom map I've ever played. The only promlem is that it's not finished yet.

    This map has potential however it has its problems as well.

    Ballence is a key problem as far as I can tell. Heroes I do not know enough about to comment on ballence wise but I certainly can with other areas of the map. Many traits are noticably less useful than others, especially some of the team ones. For example the one that prevents the final player from dieing once is lacking a constant useful passive effect making it near worthless. Others like the 5% chance not to die one are too unpredictable to be reliable (if people are dieing 20 times, a RM is needed not a free revive) and should maybe have their values raised and effect changed (eg 50% chance to resurrect instantly on death (only the owner) with full penalty (techs affect it) but you respawn at the base with reduced health and mana). A good idea is to make it so all traits are equally usable and so few people constantly pick the same traits.

    The thieves guild random level 3 item is broken and gives you a usless dummy. As a guess the reason is cause there are no level 3, in which case it should temporarilly be disabled until that feature is added.

    All the buildings in town should have some use, the blacksmith for example could perodically boost a random unit's armor. The training buildings spawn troops, stuff like that as currently they are like meat walls.

    All the allies extra gold (the NPC) should be shared or used every round, as I have seen them with 1-2K gold atleast.

    The tooltip of the keeper of the grove looking hero for the treants is broken (learning atleast I think), it says a max of 3 yet I made 4.

    Blasted server splits! I was playing with a few friends on LAN and if any of the bosses used their special, the server would split. Also, needle traps explode the server. Please fix these bugs.

    I was going to try to fix up this map a bit but upon loading there are several unit data errors and its missing basically every custom element of it, anyone know what to do about that?

    Probably is "protected" meaning that most WorldEdit only data has been deleted.

    I know that he used Widgetizer to make all the object data into text files... I'm not sure if the process is revertible or not. Plus it's considered incredibly disrespectful to edit somebody's map without their permission, especially if you had plans on posting the updated version. I've tried multiple times getting hold of Arathil through various different outlets but he's a difficult guy to contact these days. Because of that, you'd definitely be better starting your own map.

    I, myself, am actually working on a spiritual successor. A good friend of mine and I have enjoyed this map for well over 8 years. We always come back to it. There's something so fun in it's simplistic nature, it's replayability, and it's attempts to create it's own narrative. I've taken this into account, as well as I've tried to create a D&D esque feel for the map in addition to that.

    Hello! I can't believe I didn't think of doing this here before, but I'm here now, just letting everyone know I'm working on a direct update for this very map. AdamMighty (Arathil) himself gave me explicit permission to edit and update Destiny Battle, which I've been doing for the past few months. The remake is roughly 70% done now, and given another couple weeks or so, I should be plenty ready for open testing. Not sure if they'll let me upload it to Hive as a download, though, since I'm not the original author... but I'm not too worried about that right now.

    This map DESPERATELY NEEDS an update, a really unique map that has alot of expectations but still misses alot of things like the 2nd level of the ults, the level 3 items, endings......

    There was actually supposed to be second levels of the ultimates, but there were a number of problems. For starters, several heroes had ultimates that were either plain silly, or really did nothing at all. "Dramlor's Guarantee" is a good example; it's supposed to give his allies 5 times the gold he has if he leaves the game. Read that again: if he leaves the game. Why there is an ability that requires someone to quit playing to work, I have no clue. There was also no coding for Mustadio the Maker's "Build Schematic" ability, the Illusionist's "Reality Warp", etc. I'm still working on those, but as far as getting a version out for everyone to play, I doubt very much I'll be having all 30 heroes ready right off the bat. There is a LOT of work to do, and I've got an enormous amount of triggering to get through.

    As for the ending, I'm actually going to work on that next. Yes, I'm still actively editing this; though I've been doing it in fits and starts, I admit. Other things tend to tempt me away. Now I've found a great deal of extra help with regards to the triggering, though, and I'm VERY excited by the recent major updates to the World Editor, so I'm working at full speed ahead now!

    Level 3 items will be the most fun for me to do. I'm planning to extend the existing acts as I work up to making an actual final boss, so hopefully players can now actually get to see their Ultimates, too. I've already taken to beefing up the enemies that you'll see round-by-round. And I'm adding in new custom music tracks. I'm pretty much going nuts with this. ;) I very much hope to have an update ready to show everyone in the near future!
