    I think this would be a good time to replace some boring abilities. For example Priestess of the Moon has two passive abilities and one scouting ability which makes her a simple move-and-attack hero.
    Another reason is to give the gameplay a fresh new feel just like the graphics is getting. Of course I don't mean to overhaul the whole game.
    Also this will make rebuying the game less painful :)

    I'd like to have a new spell instead of replacing some. A new mechanics, ya' know.

    Honestly, passive abilities do not take mana, autocast ones do hence they are not truly passive. Shadowmeld is an active ability even if it comes by itself into action at night when the hero does no action.

    In terms of an AoS, yeah, it's boring but in terms of melee it's quite different. I use Searing Arrows last but that's my view on it because I like that spell the least.

    Paladin also needs buff.

    Remake his aura.
    Armor +1/+2/+3
    HP Regen +0,5/+1/+1,5
    Add HP to units +100/+175/+250

    Do something with BloodMage. His skillset is rly random..

    I fail to see how it is random. Every spell has its purpose...

    The one and only think i have about Paladin's Devotion Aura is the buggy Percentage value if it's set to True.

    He's but his skills need more synergy IMO. Banish and FS combo is not rly that good. Bloodmage needs some love. Why would you pick him instead of AM?

    Well, the Phoenix is useful but you have to wait too much for it to use it with Banish. However, Siphon Mana is a killer in early game.

    Yes. You have to wait way too much.. and at that time it will be hard to use it with banish.
    On 6lvl BM is still squishy and will be focused so everything he can do is try to cast ult, position himself for flame strike and use banish on enemy heroes when needed. IMO.
    Siphon mana is good against melee heroes..

    You can just buy AM and have much more usefull water elemental.

    Not only (there might be ranged ones trapped by units or in a hard position to run away far enough not to be siphoned. It's not an easy hero to play. It definitely requires some skill for those combos to work properly.
    The Archmage is an easy hero to play with. That's why most people use that hero and because of the very important passive which is an aura. Plus, the movement speed...

    Exatcly. That's why he needs some buffs/rework. Same thing with Paladin. AM is pretty much first pick always (i talk about competitive 1v1 games).

    And why is even Archmage first pick a problem in first place? It's probably the 2nd best human hero you ever could have. Some heroes are hard, some are easier, hence the priority picks. That's why there are specific building orders for each race, that's why there are advantages and disadvantages, what's the point of eliminating that? No one wants to play a game where units and heroes area just like stormtroopers...
    Your arguments are rather random. Devotion aura with armor, regen and hp boost? That's an epic boost.

    Because it would increase the number of builds/strategies.
    More viariety = more fun ?

    Numbers can be changed. It's just an idea. For now this aura is bad.
    Why are you so scared of changes? Nostalgy? :)

    Fanboys are always scared of changes, even when it's for a good reason. The nostalgia hits them hard.
