Troll Death Speaker - AGI (summoner/healer)
Preview:

attachment.php

Backstory:
These dark priestesses have come forth from the shadowy jungle cities of the trolls to join in the fight against the Burning Legion. Masters of life and death, the Death Speakers straddle the boundary between this world and the next.

While some frown upon their use of necromancy, the Death Speakers know that the time for squeamishness is past. Whether drawing strength from the enemies they slay or raising fallen allies outright from the dead, they employ any means necessary in order to ensure their people's survival.

Still, rumors abound that the priestesses are not all they seem, and that some dark bargain has been struck in order to grant them their uncanny powers...


Abilities:

With the deadline drawing nearer, I'm forced to admit my RPG for the Death Speaker won't be done on time. I'm still working on it and I'll be posting it once it's finished.

For my contest entry, I've mocked up this sample map allowing you the use the Death Speaker in a normal melee scenario. The map is modified from Blizzard's "Circumvention" (TFT). I've added the Death Speaker as a trainable Orc Hero at the Altar of Storms. To best showcase the Revive Troll ability, I've replaced the Taverns on the map with Mercenary Camps where you can hire Forest Trolls.

I may or may not post another update during the week; if not, this will be my final entry. Enjoy!

Story
Hero story coming soon...


Abilities
Disarm

The hero strikes a blow with her normal attack, trying to disarm the opponent.
With the chance of 25%/50%/75% the foe loses his possibility to attack for 5 seconds.



"Close up!"
All allies in a small area stand closer to each other.
Every melee unit gains the ability to reduce (by 20%) the incoming physical damage, dealed to the nearby allies.
Miralissa always has this effect.



Fencing
The Blade Dancer makes her thrusts extremely accurately.
Ignores some part of armor on each strike (20%-60%/40%-80%/60%-100%).
If the enemy is disarmed, the armor is reducing maximally.



Last stand
All troops under hero's control are blessed with amazing vitality!
When an enemy deals the fatal blow, the target stays alive with 1 HP and has his attack speed drastically increased.
On the next portion of damage he dies. If the damage isn't gain in a second, the aura effect can be used again.

How can I not join a Hero Contest? Well, aside from not having any time and needing to focus on life goals... bah, aside from that? :p

S - Nightwalker
models_12024_screenshot_tnb.jpg

The Night Elves have always been the first to call upon the spirits of nature to aid them in times of dire need. However, the Elves also know too well the ferocity and malevolence that those same spirits can be capable of. Nowhere else is such savagery epitomized than in the Nightwalker.

Powerful, rippling muscles covered with dense, shaggy fur, the Nightwalker is both a vicious hunter and dominant pack-leader. Well-suited to the guerrilla tactics of the Night Elves, the Nightwalker stalks his foes from the depths of the forests, then ravenously tears into his enemies. His thistle-sharp claws can Lacerate opposing enemies, leaving wounds that continue to burn; his bone-chilling Howl strikes fear into their hearts. Further, allow him to Shapeshift at night and you run the risk of swift justice. Finally, the Sign of the Bloodmoon inflicts his terrible curse upon his enemies, transforming them into his minions.


Lol, made it yesterday in a couple hours; let's see if I can whip this into a fully-fledged submission by... 3 days from now. xD Good luck, everypony.

@juno Thank you for the feedback. The waits were just a replacement for the loop. I knew someone will notice them. :)

Sorry everyone, I can't post feedbacks, because I barely have time to finish my work. (I hope, I can finish it.)

One question. What does UTM stands for?

Ps: I'm here, so I post an update.

So people of The Hive, I think I can still make it to the deadline... XD...

Jack Frost, the Guardian of Ice

During the first invasion of the Burning Legion in Azeroth, the Elves were pretty much sure that they won't
be able to fend off the legion using their powers alone. Then they remembered the stories about the guardians
chosen by the moon. Using their deep connection to the moon, the elves prayed for help. It was then that the moon
sent one of it's prized Guardians, Jack Frost.

Jack Frost was a master of ice. He can easily conjure ice in any form. He can freeze liquids in the blink of
an eye. He can also call forth snowstorms, hailstorms and blizzards. Even his mere presence renders his enemies shivering. That is Jack Frost, the guardian sent by the moon, and his powers will turn off the heat of the legion.



I'm still thinking of one last ability idea but basically the hero will have three active normal abilities + 1 passive ultimate... :)

One month should be more than enough; I was done in a few days, even though I've written over a thousand lines of vJASS code. Extending it is fine by me though, but it's not our fault if you don't start it in time.
 
And most probably maggy will end up judging as I am now officially joining this... IDK any other one who likes to judge this HC thing...

I'm finished with the two normals and the ultimate, just need one more spell idea and my entry is finished...

and it's pretty simple really, I don't really like flashy things... especially as I only have around two days to finish this... XD...

It's first invasion, humans wasn't even born as race presented in warcraft 2 or 3, at that time they lived and acted just like troll tribes, it was the high elves (banished night elves) who showed them how to use magic. Humans united during those troll wars and finally defeated trolls with elves help, kingdom was born after.

To make it as simple as possible, there is no logical sense to have both human, high elf, blood elf, dwarf and so on presented here, they don't exist or have no idea what magic is.

So point is create night elf hero, or some ancient like forest creature that will be forgotten over next 10.000 years.

@LordkoonPerhaps part of your problem was focusing on all that other stuff (cool though it may be).
Whatever happened to "Hero" Contest? I mean, your terraining looks beautiful, and all those neat custom units and scenarios are probably cool... But it's just a hero contest...

This is a big part of the reason behind the Wc3C's general policy in terms of Hero Contests. A basic, melee map is provided that everyone must use to build their hero in (which helps standardize things), and no edits are made to the map itself; just create a cool hero, and see how it stands on its' own.
Don't get me wrong, it's nice to show off talents, but we have loads of contests for that. :p

~~~

@En_Tropy - I think the point of the WIP is not to have a finished product, but just to show progress (actually, I'm not sure what the WIP requirement is for... People will do that naturally if they're excited about what they're doing...). If I can't finish mine by the deadline, then I expect to be booted (or graded hilariously harshly xD).

@TwoVenomous - I'll say this, I really love elemental heroes & such, and think you could take that in an interesting direction (as long as you're using jigrael/Tarrasque's "Tidal Lord" model, of course. That's a requirement xD.). However, I'm not so sure about the direction it's taking. First of all, abusing the word "liquid" isn't helping the Theme (also unsure what "Delta the Twist" means & comes from), and the Role is unclear. Where would this character physically be in a battle? What type of combat would he get into?
Further, a suggestion might be to try and pick some aspect of the ocean for this hero to embody. For example, he could be sort of a STR/off-tank/caster hero (~Dreadlord/) embodying "the boundless rage of the ocean"; an AGI/ranged support/tactical hero (~Dark Ranger/Naga Sea Witch/etc) embodying "the ceaseless ebb & flow of the tides"; an INT/support caster/etc (~Lich/Archmage/etc) embodying "the fathomless mysteries of the sea"[/i].
If you pick an outline or a framework to build within/from, then you can create abilities that aren't just "wow splashy cool awexome water sfx", but all that plus meaningful and Role-building.
(Moreover those are just suggestions, and only 3 of the many ways to take such a hero. AGI/INT? More supportive to allies (no damaging abilities)?, etc)

Finally, I might suggest removing the color-code tags for your posts on THW & saving that for the WE; they just make it harder to read online. :p

@Christers - I gotta say, I really like the idea of a Dwarven Engineer (actually was designing something like that as a unit for a Dwarven custom race...), and like several aspects of your hero, but I somehow feel like there's lots of untapped potential.
You've obviously got the "tower building" idea down (and lots (maybe too many?) cool upgrades for them, based on the other abilities you choose), but then... I dunno, maybe it's just me, but it seems like a bit of a let-down. Basic 'mine-laying', a passive that "improves the structure" (defensive, I thought), giving it more damage?? Finally, Magic Missile is a D&D-inspired classic, but I wondered how a analytic engineer turns to magical means all of a sudden.
Perhaps it's a bit much, a bit late. But my mind is already swirling with all the possibilities of a truly 'siege-based hero'; you have Sabotage (like targetted Liquid Fire, perhaps) against enemy buildings, you have Undermine (tunneling under a target building, causing it to collapse), you could have a Siege Weapon +Damage Aura or Summon Siege Weapon (of some creative kind), or perhaps Special Shot (dumb name for a mod. Orb of Corruption ('arrow' on-attack ability, adds AoE & +Damage for mana))... Perhaps creating Roads that speed up your friendly units (passively?), or placing Traps of various sorts, or enhancing the armor of your own buildings... the Tinker's Demolish (+damage to buildings) is a nice simple passive, and could be combined with something else... Maybe a special tower/construct that boosts friendly units but lowers enemy building armor (great for cracking through a turtled base) ("Bastion of Ironforge")...

*pant pant*

Sorry, got a little excited there. Needless to say, there's lots of options, that would really flesh out the idea of a 'Dwarven Engineer', and be incredibly creative. Nice work, though.

It's first invasion, humans wasn't even born as race presented in warcraft 2 or 3, at that time they lived and acted just like troll tribes, it was the high elves (banished night elves) who showed them how to use magic. Humans united during those troll wars and finally defeated trolls with elves help, kingdom was born after.

To make it as simple as possible, there is no logical sense to have both human, high elf, blood elf, dwarf and so on presented here, they don't exist or have no idea what magic is.

So point is create night elf hero, or some ancient like forest creature that will be forgotten over next 10.000 years.

The Legion did visit a Azeroth a few times. I never realized it MUST be an elvish hero due to the restriction of only the first ivasion... altho the damn topic's name is that. Is it so big of a problem? Plus I read this
The lore speaks of the elven cities, but the heroes in the defenses don't necessarily need to be Elves; they can be any race, except the races that were consisting the Legion itself.

Finally, you don't need to acknowledge the lore itself to join this contest. Just create a custom hero and start working on them and their spells.
So I guess it is not much of a issue anyway.

@Kyrbi0 Yes I know I got my attention at the wrong direction, but I had plans to finish the ultimate which is extremely basic and easy , just some real life stuff got on the way very hard. Also no such base-map was presented and I can recall Pharaoh being happy when contestants make some test enviroment.

Thanks for the feedback and ideas! I have amended the final spells somewhat in the entry-version I'm working on (and replaced the ultimate with something a bit more offensive), and you have given me an idea for something to replace Lay Mines with (as the tower already fulfills that purpose, it got a little redundant in playtesting).

@Orcnet - I mean I need a full snow storm model because it was supposed to be just placed one time and rest there until the spell ends, so no individual model/unit spam... anyway I settled for a blink thingy spell instead...

This will be my final entry for now... :)


Jack Frost, Guardian of Ice
During the first invasion of the Burning Legion in Azeroth, the Elves were pretty much sure that they won't be able to fend off the legion using their powers alone. Then they remembered the stories about the guardians chosen by the moon. Using their deep connection to the moon, the elves prayed for help. It was then that the moon sent one of it's prized Guardians, Jack Frost.

Jack Frost was a master of ice. He can easily conjure ice in any form. He can move between nearby areas in the blink of an eye. Even his mere presence renders his enemies shivering. That is Jack Frost, the guardian sent by the moon, and his powers will turn off the heat of the legion.

@TwoVenomous - I'll say this, I really love elemental heroes & such, and think you could take that in an interesting direction (as long as you're using jigrael/Tarrasque's "Tidal Lord" model, of course. That's a requirement xD.). However, I'm not so sure about the direction it's taking. First of all, abusing the word "liquid" isn't helping the Theme (also unsure what "Delta the Twist" means & comes from), and the Role is unclear. Where would this character physically be in a battle? What type of combat would he get into?
Further, a suggestion might be to try and pick some aspect of the ocean for this hero to embody. For example, he could be sort of a STR/off-tank/caster hero (~Dreadlord/) embodying "the boundless rage of the ocean"; an AGI/ranged support/tactical hero (~Dark Ranger/Naga Sea Witch/etc) embodying "the ceaseless ebb & flow of the tides"; an INT/support caster/etc (~Lich/Archmage/etc) embodying "the fathomless mysteries of the sea"[/i].
If you pick an outline or a framework to build within/from, then you can create abilities that aren't just "wow splashy cool awexome water sfx", but all that plus meaningful and Role-building.
(Moreover those are just suggestions, and only 3 of the many ways to take such a hero. AGI/INT? More supportive to allies (no damaging abilities)?, etc)

Finally, I might suggest removing the color-code tags for your posts on THW & saving that for the WE; they just make it harder to read online. :p

thanks for the feedback, that's really depth explanation. can't say anything :/ i'm not good at all when it comes to something like this. i think i'll pass. good luck to everyone :D

and btw, i got the name from a label of Detergen @[email protected]

ARCH BISHOP
The hero is a priest who focuses on healing allies and dealing periodic damage by summoning vortexes of pure light that damage enemies and buff allies as well as using a powerfull spell that creates a well of light that both heals allies around it and damage enemies close to its center.
As all heroes there is a sticky situation escape way. The bishop will blast an enemy with light and become invisible and immortal for a very short time, allowing him to move trough units and obstacles.
Ofcorse no hero is complete without his ultimate. The Bishop can turn an ally unit into a supportive ward itself, granting it health regeneration, spell immunity and the abbility to be a living Light Vortex - spawning vortex missles to damage enemies.
