Neverwinter Nine


It has been a long time seen i first created a Hero defense map. It's actually my favorite genre.
I did play X-Hero and some other popular maps but i am not satisfied with most of them so i decided to make a new fresh one, on my own way :grin:

-Map story: Nothing special. You are one of the Neverwinter Nine, the most noble and talent warriors of Lord Nasher. You will be sent to the Crossroad Keep, to help defense it from an invasion of the enemies.

-Map genre: Hero Defense

-Number of players: 1 - 6

-Gameplay: Team up and try to survive the tough battle as well as protect Lord Nasher. If he dies, you lose. The enemies will be divided into many classes. Mainly warrior, mage, assassin and ranger. Each hero has a specific role so the only way to win is teamwork.
Basically the map will focus on custom Heroes, spells and items. I will also add some new regions around the Keep so you will have some tasks to do. Search as killing a Legendary Dragon for treasures or assassinate an Enemies' leader for bonuses. There are totally 29 waves of enemy.

-Heroes:

-Each class has a specific NPC to learn his talents. Normally talent (the other name of skill, spell or ability as we usually call) will cost 1 talent point (attribute point), 100 gold and corresponding Hero level. Each level gives you four talent points, you can distribute to Strength, Agility, Wisdom or keep them to learn other abilities, the choice is yours.

  • Strength: increases health, health regen rate, physical damage and physical damage from some Talents.
  • Agility: increases armor, physical critical rate and physical damage from some Talents.
  • Wisdom
: increases mana, mana regen rate and magical damage from Talents.

Magical damage includes ice, fire, lightning and spirit. Nature damage is considered as poison, note that Undead is immune to critical damage and Nature damage.

Rogue's talents

Ranger's talents

Mage's talents

Sorceress' talents

-Tips and Hints:
  • This map requires at least 4 players, the default difficulty is hard.
  • Do not forget to distribute your talent points and it should be reasonable.
  • Do not try to be a superman, fight as a team.
  • Use Teleporters for quick transporting.
  • Upgrade your items.

    Actually you should make a proper changelog in the description too. That should help for admission of the map.

    :vw_wtf: I agree. That's one of the qualities of this map. Slow it's good, but it sure needs some time between waves...

    Cunning's automatic critical hit when attacking from behind no longer works.

    For some strange reason, if you have Frost Blast and Repulsion field, if you use the R hotkey, both spells fire but only Frost Blast goes on CD, which lets you doublecast repulsion. It may actually work with other Tier 3 talents, I'll get back to you on that. *EDIT* Only works with Repulsion.

    Just beat the map for the first time. Duo'd it with a friend. I was a wisdom-based Guardian and he was a Rogue.

    Just because Holy Smite is epic, 500% mana is too much when you can easily have about 20k, i will have to fix in next version.

    No argument there, man. :D Though don't nerf it too hard, keep in mind I couldn't do crap for damage with anything but smite with that build.

    You can still achieve 100% current mana as damage and consider enemy armor :grin:

    Try to have a good team, use some strategies, upgrade your items and do not forget secret talents.

    This is final boss:

    lay on hands skill of guardian is useless. because of low healing value.
    standstill is also bad. is it useful in this map?
    guardian needs taunt skill...

    If you learn Lay on Hands i think you should also learn all of Templar's talent. both Holy Smite and Lay on Hands rely on Wisdom, with about 250 wisdom, you can heal and also deal about 1k6 damage, especially when Undead immune to poison and critical, not to say Holy Smite deals damage based on current mana.

    Standstill just acts like Taunt, keep the enemy around Guardian so Mage, Ranger or other nukers clear them.

    Of course i will adjust if any talent is too week or powerful.

    FYI, your thread on TheHelper still links to version 1.0. I tested the map and left feedback, then found out I played a map 4+ revisions out of date. :csad:

    Wizard's lightning L40 talent, Lightning Rod, does not work.

    Frozen Orb and Phoenix Strike still requres L30 to learn.

    For some strange reason, cleave items do not work on guardian.
