Life of a Hero 1.1v

Submitted by kleinerhauck
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
As you can tell by the name, this is a life-of-a-peasant-style map.
Thus it's about exploring the map, doing jobs and become as mighty as possible to be ready for the apocalypse.

[highlight]The Jobs[/highlight]

Jobs allow you to get money, experience, skill and attribute points.
Killing creeps for no reason might get you gold, but no experience.
Each job offers 3 unique abilities with 12 levels (beside one standard spell which you can't level).

List of Jobs

- Healer
- Wizard
- Cook assistent
- Miner
- Soldier
- Bandit
- Salesman
- Demon (req. 500 points)
- Assassin (req. 1000 points)
- Collector (req. 2000 points)
- Mesmer (req. 3500 points)
- Barbarian (req. 6000 points)
- Naga Friend (req. 10,000 points)
...more to come!

The points can be earned by level-ups and end boss kills and can be saved/loaded from game to game.


[highlight]The Apocalypse[/highlight]

Whether you are strong enough or not - the apocalypse will come.
And with it spawns a mighty end boss - the Tormentor.
It's a really bad-ass enemy, and he seems to be pissed, thus you need a bunch of well-equiped and -leveled heroes to bring him down.

But if you manage to do that, and I bet you won't in your first few games, you receive a mighty weapon, the Hellreaper, which you can save for future games along with your experience.

The Hellreaper

    Seems to be a real fan :D
    The map has anti-cheat (whosyourdaddy and greedisgood).

    edit: I want to add a king or something to the map, who should be determined by a title or item (which drops on death).
    But I'm not sure about what powers he should have besides a private army and the ability to dismiss the chief constable (and maybe set taxes for the players).
    Any ideas?

    Was playing single player and I couldn't save because I used a cheat. -_- Fix please?

    Take off the anticheat. It's useless anyways, you can't use cheats on bnet..

    lol true
    maybe there can be two save modes...
    First mode for b.net which will be disabled when you SP
    Second mode for SP which will be disabled when you b.net
    for the following 2 modes you could simply use 2 different code generators
    and at the beginning of the game you could check if it's SP and if true you enable the SP codegen and disable the b.net codegen...
    and if there are more than 2 players in game, it means it's b.net and then you enable b.net codegen and you disable SP codegen...
    i hope i didn't make it too complicated...
    here are the 2 code generators that i suggest...
    CodeGen0.06 for B.net
    iGen for SP
    both of them generate different codes and are pretty good ;p

    I hope you like my idea, Happy editing :)

    I uploaded the latest version I made (1.1e). I hope the new stuff has has no bugs (I didn't test it so often).
    What's new?
    - You can slide down hills (costs hit points)
    - New job: Salesman

    This is the last version for a while since i stopped playing w3. Have fun!

    The save-system will stay as it is now, since it makes the most sense this way imo.

    Do not advertise your maps on other people's maps or whatever like this!

    sorry, but that's against the rules so you should remove the post of yours.

    Thanks!!!

    Hey, I've got your map downloaded and played... That's really good...

    I LIKE the two swords when those are carried by the villager... the jobs are cool...

    One thing is that the damage is always 7-17 + additional damage from items carried. I don't know how much damage my villager has; the only thing I'm looking at are integers at Str, Int, and Agil...

    THE BEST MAP....

    Well I guess its supposed to be like that i mean your not even meant to be able to find the banned very easily in comparison to the tormentor but still if per say someone were to find it long before the tormentor then that game would suddenly be 10000x harder when tormentor comes because you have both the banned and the tormentor to worry about

    Does anybody have ideas for spells for the Naga job I wanna add? Some watery stuff maybe.

    /edit: Finished socket-system and added 2 new orbs (orb of energy and orb of berserk) which can be socked into items to gain various effects.
    For example the orb of berserk:
    Weapons: Attack speed +100%
    Shield: Adds a 10% chance to create a shade of yourself striking back at the attacker.
    Helmet/Armor: Movement speed aura (+50%)

    Further changes in this Version (1.1h):
    - Hellreaper can't be sold anymore
    - Hellreaper damage increases with (number of gained hero levels) starting from 1
    - Creeps can drop some low purchaseable items (swords/armors etc).

    Event: Player property becomes greater than X
    Or something like that.

    (Btw there are some known issues with the new hellreaper damage system, gonna fix that soon.)

    great map ;)

    I think you should add some progression to the jobs, or some reward at high levels of the job. Like possibly, some item you can craft if you are a certain job at level 20 or 30.

    It would also be nice if some of the spell caster jobs had a more diverse pack of spells to choose from, maybe make a different menu in the shop so you could sell more skills, so each person of the same trade is not exactly the same. So you could have 1 dps wizard and 1 buffing/debuffing wizzard.

    As for water spells I suggest Water Cyclone by xBlackRose

    5/5 +rep

    Thx. Those are nice ideas; I was already wondering how to make people stick to their job a little better.
    Now that I have made the socket system I could add an extra orb for each job, maybe with bonuses that depend on the hero level.
    If sb has ideas feel free to post them.

    More spells for every job would be too much effort though.. Instead of a (de)buffing wizzard you can just choose mesmer or healer to get supportive spells.

    Uploaded a new version btw (1.1i): Hellreaper dmg bugs are fixed, and there are 2 new bosses dropping nice new unique items :)
    Also limited the maximum damage of the energy shield of the mesmer and added a new axe in the shop. Enjoy!

    ranks

    i had an idea about the ranks lets say a guy with 30k points other with 6k both have hellreaper if they start a game they will be equill in it so i thought for evry each 500 rank points 100 added in start just to make who played more to have a little more advantge on other ppl.

    edit: ah for naga how about a rain that incirce his dmg in the area it's casted hope u liked it .

    That rain thing is a good idea. I could expand that a little:
    One passive spell which increases some stats every time it rains (including normal rain), and one which creates rain in a certain area/around the hero.
    Some kind of naga-suit-attachment would be cool but I couldn't find anything except a naga helmet :/

    About the ranks: I like it better if they don't add any advantages besides unlocking new (better) jobs.
