    Nice work mate, but you could've been more creative if you added more original skills such as "Dive" or "Sweeping Strike" from HotS...that would make it more interesting. Or "Fel Beam" into his demon form. This is just regular Illidan with same but improved abilities. Still awesome though:)

    Similar to Samuro, i think Illidan original kit is pretty good but it lacked some "juice" for his playstyle, so i wanted to leverage and improve upon some of his original conepts, like evasion. Tbh, i never liked Illidan spells from HOTS, the spells that you metioned, Dive and Sweeping Strike are basically the same, a dash that do damage at the end, so it felt not that "cool" to do just that, so i came up Adaptive Strike and Spell Shield instead, but i got your point, this is just my view of him. I thought of creating a Fel Eye Beam for him, like in the cinematic from Legion, and it would fit pretty good for his Demon form, but i wanted his last spell to be useful for both of his forms, and since i played around him being a counter spell caster, mana burn with extra touch fit pretty well i think. Anyway, thx for the reply.

    Yeah sure, it's all subjective, I myself enjoy Illidan a lot in HotS because he feels extremely agile, can do all those crazy stuff and pursue enemies forever:)

    Your reasons are understandable though. But at least you could've added Fel Eye Beam which is like the most iconic spell of Illidan nowadays. It would've looked awesome with that cool flying demonic form. One exclusive ranged spell for that form would make the transformation more interesting in my opinion.

    Anyways, do Tichondrius next!:)

    another excellent hero concept. the only thing that needs fixed is the deactivate immolation needing a disabled icon. it shows as the green box when you have the menu open.


    otherwise, i agree that the standard illidan pack is fairly solid and is made even better with these bonuses. however, an additional spell or effect being added somewhere to set him apart from the melee version but not making him the HoTs version could be useful. for example while his flying metamorphosis is active, he creates flames of azzinoth that get stronger with the amount of mana he burns off enemies. i would also suggest adding a cancel button for metamorphosis in case you want to use the fear effect more effectively
