    Hi guys. I am making a complete race for Chaos Orcs and all units must have abilities (custom abilities) that can make ladder players interested. I am now remaking many things of the race and balancing it as well. So, I must remake Kodo beast. It came to my attention, if the Kodo beast increases allies attack, maybe the Kodo Chaos beast can decrease enmies attack... but that is a newbie idea ... I want something fresh, something new... I need ideas =P

    Btw, the Chaos Orcs are a mainly an offensive race in my map. They are also excellent teammates for Undead allies.

    I am open to ideas, rep++ is given as motivation for people that post ideas.

    Drums of Chaos - The beat of this chaotic drum increases nearby unit's HP as well as attack speed and damage.

    Mmm seems nice.
    I can't use these ... I already have them in hero spells of some sort.

    Increass Units hp mmmm Having in mind Chaos Orcs lack defensive abilities, I think that +hp and + attack will do the job just fine. Please elaborate this idea, do you think the bonus damage should be given as a percentage? What about the hp?
    I really think I might use this, thx !

    instead of the standard war drums with the % increase of allied units damage, it could be an increase by a % of the kodo beasts damage.

    Hp could be the same idea, Or, rather, the closer the unit is to the kodo beast, the more hp it can be given. This could be used as for the damage as well.

    This is not a good idea ... this will bring great conflict if a unit is near several kodos. I don't intend this ti stack you know xD

    Mmmm.... quite a realistic idea ... I may like it xD

    how about increase attack damage based on the attack damage that the kodo has.

    (if kodo has 26 base dmg, units gain +26 damage)

    I don't think this is "doable" ... I don't know of anyway to get the unit's current attack damage =S

    So far I think the Kodo aura will be:
    - Increases nearby unit's hp by 3% and attack speed by 6%

    Thx for all the ideas =P

    Not quite, you gave me pretty good ideas for heroes you know =D

    How about slighty reducing the effect of the aura, and adding a spell that disables the kodo drummers attack, but give a much higher aura effect

    You mean a unit that can not attack and that it's only purpose is to have an aura ?

    he means that the kodo can cast an ability which will make him unable to attack but increase the effect of the aura it has.


    no attk = better aura
    attk = lesser aura

    Ahhh mmm ... like some kind of morph right ?
    I really think this idea is innovative for a melee game I like it. One question though, should the kodo still be able to "devour" enemy units?

    i would say.

    since the drummer is the attacker, and when you "morph" he concentrates on drumming while the kodo just does nothing. so i would say devour is an always.

    I know how to make a miss aura thx =P

    The aura has already been decided, it will add X% hp to allies and it will increase their attack rate by 10% or 15% =D
