Hey.

I need some item ideas.

I have an item set that has two sides. Both sides should have one passive special thing. When the player combines the set to full, the both passive ideas are combined.

Example:

1) Attack steals 10 life per hit
2) Attack steals 10 mana per hit
Combined: Attack steals 10 life and mana per hit

...But of course, something more advanced.

So start to throw some ideas. You'll rewarded with some rep and credits.

Armor blocks a negative spell every 40 seconds.
Helmet reduces magic damage by .33.
Combine for Spell Immunity.

That's too imba + doesn't work with my project coz' half of enemies spells are triggered.

1)Item Gives The Owner 75% Mana Regeneration
2)Item gives 20% chance to cast renew
Renew :While Attacking, Has 20% chance to heal every allied units Mana by 150 including yourself
Combine : Gives the owner 100% Mana Regeneration and 25% chance to cast Renew

Can't change cooldown with the current systems. Also other parts of the idea is used already.

Here some rep to give some motivation and new power to help me. This is not as easy as you might have thought first. Many ideas are already used in the campaign.

Also some help here. There are some things that can start the effect:

- Item used
- Attacking
- Attacked
- After cast
- Occasionally(timer)
- Character dies
- Enemy dies

This is a cool idea. Not exactly what I'm searching but I'll add this down so I can use this idea later.

Other ideas I already use in a way or another. More ideas, please.

here we go
Offensive one
item holder casts the ability called Demonic Field, Every allied and Enemy unit (except heroes) in the field will be cursed which results to deal 50 damage per second on them till they die, once cursed unit dies , its soul is then absorbed by the item holder, once there are no cursed units on the field the item holder then casts the Final Judgement with a 3 second delay and needs to pay at least half of his health points and mana points ,he deals damage to every unit within 1500 range around you ( including hero ), deals 4x main attribute x Soul absorbed / 2 , if there are units which have 1/3 life left , they will automatically die and will become a spirit which again absorbed by the hero, for every spirit absorbed he heals 5% his health and mana points.

I too think its complicated xD ok ill lower it a bit down here one with a passive and active one

Offensive
When item holder kills a unit, Unit will be converted to a soul, when item holder has stacked up 6 souls, he then releases it on his 7th attack and deal 4x his normal damage + attribute bonus x 5/2 ( he may only release his 7th attack on a hero ) if 6 souls were stacked he can also use it to heal himself/herself by 30% health and mana points

Light
Amulet of absorption
reduces non-magic damage by (20 + (Intelligence/10))% and turns that into mana.

Amulet of Reflection
reflects a spell once every 40seconds works against enemies who cast spells
at or near this unit (effects unit and point target spells only) reflected spells will be cast back at the caster.

edit: Combine: Shielding Amulet reflects a spell once every 30 seconds reduces all damage by (25 + (Intelligence/10))% and turns that into mana.
going to add a dark version for these

edit2: Dark Version
Amulet of Magic Absorption reduces magic damage by (20 + (Intelligence/9))% and turns that into mana for the caster.

Amulet of Magic Suppression: every 15 seconds it will stop one enemy who is casting a spell within 1000 of the hero.
combined every 15 seconds it will stop one enemy who is casting a spell within 1000 of the hero and give the hero the amount of mana they used.

Light:

Manaseed: Every 5 attacks, restores 20 mana.
Manashield: Blocks 1 point of damage for 1 point of mana (passive).

Combine: Every 5 attacks restores 25 mana, manashield blocks 3 damage for every point of mana (manashield becomes active, with no activation cost)

Dark:

Painkiller: Every hit taken restores 5 mana.
Manacrystal: Increases armor by 5 but drains mana until turned off (active);

Combine: Every hit taken restores 7 mana, manablock provides 7 armor. If manablock is on, only 5 mana is restored.

(Really bad at balancing, as I proved earlier, feel free to edit the numbers)

I can't use the baisc blizzard spell reflection ability and it's too much work to make own system just for an item so I can't use your ideas Narogog. Also magic resistance is used already. :(

The idea from cleavinghammer is somewhat fine. It's doesn't perfectly fit but I'll use your idea elsewhere. Thanks!

More ideas!

That "ignores armor" is not yet used...

I still have a feeling I'm still searching for something special.

Massive wall of text with a simple idea to slow enemies with basic attacks. Already used. :<

It seems like it's hard to think new ideas for items.

merged:Whenever the bearer attack or is attacked, he receives 5% attack speed against that target and the target's attak speed is decreased by 5%.
Effects for all these items last 10 seconds, stackable.
1)10% chance to cast entangling roots
2)for every time the item holder attacks , he gains a temporary +2 main attribute points that lasts for 20 seconds ( stacks to 20 attribute bonus )

1) Taunt all units around 1000 AoE to attack taunting unit
2) Gives the user permanent immolation

Combination
When item holder casts a spell, after the casted spell gives the item holder a 20% chance to pull all enemy units in range to item holder and deal damage per second depending on the value of main attribute ( example main attribute - 46 , 46 DPS ) for 6 seconds after taunt is done silences all units that were pulled for 5 seconds

I can't edit the cooldowns with the current systems and I cannot do "spell life steal"(too much work). Second idea is used already.

When item holder recieves 500 Damage, he releases a roar that will make all units unable to move and recieves 200% Bonus damage from spells,if unit that was affected dies, he will recieve a temporary armor bonus.

Offensive
Item holder kills a hero, he gains a buff that on his next attack he is able to deal damage equal to 1/4 the maximum health of the target, if the next target dies, he releases a roar that will make him recieve a temporary damage bonus.

Sorry, but I just don't like these ideas.

Defensive.
Assassin's cloak
Gives a (10+((damage dealt+Agility(not including bonuses))/level of hero))% chance when damaged by a ranged unit to teleport behind the unit and attack it dealing 2x damage.

And that's already used as an ability.

Still I need more ideas. I just need one more good idea and I'm done. Then I will give you all helpers some rep.

Mundane boots
-add 50 movement speed
talisman of restoration
-adds 5 hitpoints per sec
merged:
Traveller's Boots
-add 70 movement speed
-heals the bearer the more he moves around (means: check every xyz seconds sitance between points and add life to bearer equal to distance * multiplier).
Since I don't know how much life your heroes and such have, the correct amount would be up to you.

EDIT:
An item I'm using myself:
Stonkaz Stompaz
add movement speed and the chance to cast a weak thunderclap when hit (fluff says: stomp the ground :p ). Passive, cooldown 0.7 secs, 15% chance upon attack
consists of heavy boots (ms) and an earth totem (active cast: shockwave)
