It's me again, this time with a Zangarmarsh themed map. It utilizes multiple assets from different tile-sets. There are loads of mushrooms abound, and a mixture of Sunken Ruin, Outland and Ogre Creeps. Also do not be fooled by the Orange Camp in the bottom right corner of the map, it's an Ancient Hydra>Hydra x2>Hydra Hatchling x4, plus a Draenei Seer.

As always, I look forward to any and all feedback. Best of luck out there.

Hello there
Yet again it's me checking your map
I was comparing your modifications on items compared to their melee counterpart
Level 1 : Permanent
Somehow I don't understand why remove the ring of armor + 3, it's really good, compared to cloak imo
I know cloak saves heroes on high lvl plays but still, I always sell it
Level 2 : I personally never see the staff of tp being dropped, guess its fine
Lvl 3 : Boots of Speed is great there, it cost 250gold, which is quite a investment on the early game, so I would definitly suggest you bring it back
It's not because an item can be bought that it shouldn't drop
Lvl 4 : Dark Summonning always nice imo, but yet again not the kind of item I see dropping, tho it can save some lives, fine ish
lvl 6 : Okay staff of imbalance is definitly broken, I hate it, but its needed? Don't have enough data on it, can't say for sure
What I can say is, it dropping from a lvl 16 is definitly not fine, doesn't matter if it multiplies on death and has a healer nearby, not fine on hydra sorry

The rest is fine ish, Removing tome of health even tho sometimes you just need hp vs burst instead of stats
The lvl 5 Charged tho, nope, summons are just way too good, each can turn the tide of the battle in your favor, especially in a 1v1
Fel stalker is amazing, -100 mana, you cast it 3-4 times, if you're fighting an undead you just win straight up
Invul pot on a DH is amazing as well, and I could go on

Definitly want to re-add some if not all of the drops on lvl5

Otherwise I feel map is fine, there's no cliff I like it, green camps are fine
Aethetic fine, even tho I dislike those barrens doodads, its personnal opinion, they prolly fit well

Edit : You forgot critters, could as well add some trees near taven for NE players

Hi OnyxTheDark,

The item drops I have mostly tailored to follow what I found on Liquipedia for the competitive 1v1 map pools. My original thought process for not including the Manual of Health was that the Tome of Strength would already give a hero health, so why bother adding in two health gain options. However, in doing so I made the Tome of Agility more likely to appear, so I have re-added in the Manual of Health to all of my current maps. Otherwise, the only other difference would be the actual inclusion of Charged 5 drops compared to the competitive map pool. Out of the drops, I felt the the most balanced options were between the two healing options, Potion of Restoration and Scroll of Restoration. I agreed with your sentiment that the Fel Stalker and Invul Pot would be too powerful.

That all said, I did take what you said and added in a couple trees near the Tavern and the critters that I forgot to put in.

As for the barrens doodads, I felt the desire to add in a bit of "corruption" by using the fissure doodad and to coincide with the color pallet change in the area to be more red and dry.

All in all, I really do appreciate you taking the time to review my maps and providing me with feedback.

On a similar note, it has been great to have a creative outlet that I could share with the community, and I will endeavor to continue to improve and create new maps.

Like always, I look forward to any and all feedback.
