Damn, dude.
1. I see no way any of them will fit to heroes.
2. Scalings are crappy.
3. Each of them is either OP or useless.
4. Huge AoEs aren't cool.
5. Random spells like ur druids totem aren't cool.
6. You haven't specified vital info about some spells. Like monks hp bonus. How long is it? Is it passive?

about the psion thing: since there will be skills added and one of them has to compete with psionic blades, maybe there could be a skill lets call it clairvoyance, wich would allow this witchthing to use gems and increase allys evasion or smth.

1. some are support skills for offensive class some are offensive skills for suport class so you can choose between a offensive skill or a suport skill or defensive beserk already have lots of damage skills so i put a support skill on him if you want to do shield beserk for tanking for example...
or storm's totem for offensive druid for example

2. any skill are hard to scale but tnis ones will be late game skills so you will learn then at level 40 or 45

4. not huge they work as areas auras only druid effect would happen in a "huge aoe"

5. why not? think with me there is 3 monsters every 0.5 sec 1 lightning will hit 1 of this 3 or 3 lightning will hit this 3!! it would help a lot for d3 waves or for farming purpose for example. (druids dont have offensive skills anyway not area skills)

6. all the info are specified unless the monk one that is a heal not a bonus health and its instantly (i forget to make it more clear)

Regarding point 5 and d3 farming...Why dont we just go back to the old Imbue Armor triggering Levitate spelldmg then?

These are pretty good man!

And DrizztDoUrden, it's unnecessary to be so negative about someone giving only raw concepts or ideas for new skills. These can all be twiched a little bit of course.

I was talking about their quality mostly. Most of them simply can't be coupled with anything or are absurd, like hexs making his enemy in roots for 50%+ time coupled with jolt and stunning after that.

I am not negative to ideas cuz they are raw or have bad numbers. I just say why are they bad as they are. If you can prove that they are good do it. This is public discussion anyway. And why should I ever react nicely to any idea posted here for no reason?

Berserker:
Bloodthirst
consumes stacks of Berserker rage and deal 0.2 x number of stacks x ap dmg and healing hero for 60% of the dmg dealt. - I think cd isn't needed cause u have to build up rage stacks again to use it.
So basically u get some self heals at the cost of rage stacks.

Random Hunter skill suggestions:

Disrupting Shot: The Hunter takes aim for 0,5 seconds and fires an arrow at the target, interrupting it and dealing Xblablabla damage.

Feint Death: The Hunter feigns death. All threat removed on the Hunter. Lasts 20 seconds or until cancelled. (Wow ninja)

Caltrops: The Hunter throws calrops at the selected area. Any enemy inside the area of effect will take physical damage per second and have movement slowed by 60%. Lasts for 5 seconds.

Well, they could be added as alternate choices to the current CC, but those caltrops look more like an Assassin thing.

Hunter DPS buff

Hunter has massive AoE potential and CC, she doesn't need any more DPS.
She does not need more dps huh , the dps is so laughable and furthermore not even test bosses and foothill bosses are even begging for hunters need to be there. I mean like if u see all the bosses , all the adds (like BM and garg adds) are easily killed by sin , bish(with aoe skill and lvl 50) ,a sorc with fireball and even a necromancer. I know that hunter is specially made for massive aoe creep control and i dont even want to mention zerk which does that better. It's like the thing hunter is specialized at is too easy to cover which makes hunter quite useless compared to other classes. I still want to say that hunter's dps must be heavily buffed or make bosses that summon way harder adds.

i think this is one of the most absurd boosts i have seen being asked.

much irony in Manipulation's words.

Hunter not needed in a party? I consider hunter core in any party for a few good reasons:

1) 7% crit aura boosts your entire party dps by a good amount. I dont care how much single target damage a unit can deal, its irrelevant when you compare it to boosting an entire party's dps.

2) Again about aura. 7% evasion is not laughable especially with the current crusader meta. Same for ensnare. 20% miss chance for 16 secs (with talent) with a 20sec cd is fucking OP. This increases your crusader's DPS, threat control which effectively gives your ENTIRE PARTY threat reduction which is fucking amazing for the new test bosses.

3) As stated before, foothills content is irrelevant. Any class can maintank, almost any 5-6 man party does not require a healer. High single target DPS means nothing on the upcoming test bosses. The key is sustain and debuffing.

No specific class is needed in Gaias. One just needs to fill necessary roles: tank, healer, dps appropriately.

Random ability suggestions vol. 2:

Invisibility: The target ally becomes invisible for 3 seconds. Enemies cannot see the target and will not attack it. Attacks made by the target from behind enemies will deal X% extra damage for the duration.
Damage from area of effect abilities still hits the invisible target and so it isn't invulnerable. Aggro gain is continued as normal while under the effect of Invisibility.

Magical Barrier:
Physical attacks made against the friendly target for the next 5 seconds also reflect back on the attacker. Does nothing against attacks to the back.

Exorcism (Crusader): The Crusader removes one buff on an enemy target or one debuff on a friendly target. Undead and Demon targets also take X x SP holy damage.

Unholy Armor (to stay in WC2) (Necromancer):
The target's hitpoints are reduced to 30% of total hitpoints, but the target takes 90% less damage from all sources during the duration. Lasts 6 seconds.

Overcharge (Hexblade): The Hexblade's attack strike targets with such force that it also strikes enemies in a line behind the target. Lasts 5 seconds.

Soul Drain (necromancer): The target is struck by a wraith, leeching it's life essence, dealing X x SP shadow damage and further striking up to 2 nearby enemy targets before returning to the necromancer and converting the damage dealt to hitpoints.

Don't get me wrong but are u saying hunter is more like a support class? If that's the idea then i have nothing to say.

Not entirely a support class. Hunter is still primarily a dps class with uber utility. Dps with utility > pure dps classes for reasons i already mentioned. Higher team dps > higher solo dps

SHOTS FIRED! xD

Com on Zwieb !!! be honest! i didnt ask for boost, i suggested something NEW if you consider its too powerful, there are always ways to nerf it and you know it !!! ffs i play many classes why would i care to boost only a specific class:vw_wtf: Gaias doesnt even have PVP to justify it that way plus this skill seems like the worst skill for PVP... :vw_death::vw_sad: .....

(the rest are ignored, cant see their posts!) Q+Q

That feeling when u suggest simple zerker's skill and then wild hunter shitstorm appears.

Imo hutner is fine, she got amazing party buff and still pulls some nice dps along with aoes (no gonna mention 50% crit rate lol).

with the anymal stances thing comming back alot of people liked the idea and i just thought of the thing:
give the monk one ability that he uses on one of the animals and then gets a buff based on the animal and can only have one of those buffs at a time. the animals that are in the game right now are wolf, spider, crab, boar, crow and bear if i am not mistaken. and the wolf could grant some offensive bonus while the crab could be more of a defensive thing

But there isnt another fighting Monk in west zwieb. Its only the Shaolins and they belong to the east...... Nvm....

Actually i have been doing research these days regarding the animal Stances/Styles but i think the styles dont fit the Monk in gaias due to how skills and everything function in gaias already. Why?? Well what i had in mind was that there would be lets say 5 basic animal stances and players would be able to choose only 1. After choosing the stance/style you will get passive stats bonuses (depending on the animal style) but also more complicated passive and active skills. But well... i as i said i dont see this happing in Gaias.. it requires too many changes and stuff (i think).

to save you effort and from others reading your suggestions, lets just say that NONE of what you suggested so far will even come close to even being a rough idea on what you expect in gaias for the any forseeable future.
