The map includes more than 10 Achievements. Some are individual, to one player only, others affect the entire team. Each one are vital and can make a huge difference. Try to complete them before the other team and recieve unique rewards.
[​IMG]

Pick up Power-Ups that may drop every time a player kills an enemy wave unit. They can increase primary attribute, gold income and even decrease how long it takes to resurrect your hero, but be carefull, because if your hero dies, it will lose all the collected power-ups.
[​IMG]

Each faction has 2 bases, a main and a secondary. Protect the secondary base of yours while you try to destroy the enemy's one. These bases provide the gold used to upgrade the waves units and your free income. If your faction loses the secondary base, its waves will upgrade slower and you will lose your free gold income giving a great advantage to the other team.
[​IMG]

The damage of the waves upgrades automaticaly every 10 minutes, but you can increase their level buying upgrades on the market in your main base. Use it to your advantage by upgrading the waves before your opponents and make pressure on the other team.
[​IMG]

Fight against powerfull bosses that require team work to be defeated and gain powerfull items.
[​IMG]

Each lane has a themed wave and outpost. Instead of a single tower in the middle of a lane, you will fight amid more elaborated outposts, each one with a theme and its own pros and cons.
[​IMG]

Beatiful and strategic terrain with various fog points, hidden passages between the forests and tall grass that blocks the line of sight, resulting in many points to ambush your enemies or flee.
[​IMG]

Very detailed tooltips for all skills, allowing you to know every single detail and take maximum advantage of them.
[​IMG]

A complete in-game manual(F9) with valuable information.
[​IMG]

Tired of heroes with 4 or 5 skills all the time?

If your answer is yes, you will find in this map some heroes with a lot more than just 4 skills.

But if your answer is no, this is still a map for you, because there are heroes with the good old 4 skills formula.

More About Heroes
The map has 35 heroes with different gameplays from the normal ones that everybody knows from other AoS maps to heroes with a more complex style. Play with heroes with the old 4 skills formula, heroes with more than 10 skills, heroes with no ultimates, heroes with 3 ultimates and many more, each one with its own and unique theme. And all carefully balanced.

Use the spells wisely, find combos to increase their effects and cause massive damage. Try combos with other heroes, some of them has good synergies with others and can be very dangerous together.

[​IMG]

After picking a hero, it is time to choose how you want to customize it with the array of item types the map offers. Each one with its own caracteristics, pros and cons.​

Items Detailed
They are divided in the markets by "function", for example: starting items are all placed in the same market, the same with the items that increases attack damage, armor, consumables, evolution, etc.

There are 5 different kinds of items, check the in game menu (F9) for a more detailed description:

Commons: the normal ones. No secrets here. They are cheap, but not that powerfull, however some of them have useful abilities.

Recipes: the same of others AoS maps, just buy all the listed items and they will form a new one. Recipes are supportive items and can help a lot.

Sets: buy all the listed items to form the whole set and recieve additional bonus. Check the base's fountains for the lists of the sets with the full description. They may be expensive, but a sure of power. They are very powerfull and have unique effects, however they will take some space in your inventory.

Evolutions: fight for your item. You buy a weak one, then, if you fulfill the evolve condition, it will become a more powerfull one, but every time you die, they lose a part of its evolutional condition and some of them may drop! Click one of these items to display its information. Not recomended for beginners.

Cursed: they are powerfull, but... cursed. At the same time they boosts your hero, they will decrease something. Cheap, but dangerous... Use at your own risk.

    Okay, I do like this map... quite a lot, actually, but it has serious balance issues. A lot of heroes are on the weak side, though not disgustingly so - no, it's the top end that is scary. Shaman is absolutely ridiculous. Not only does Rank 2 Lightning + Fire instantly gib Galvanoth (or whatever his name was) along with absolutely anything else hit by it, but almost everything he does causes unbelievable graphical lag. I love Shaman and his concept, but at the minute he's just busted in all ways possible.

    Wow, have you seriously been working and editing this map for almost one year? If so, then you either have quite a lot of free-time, or have a massive amount of devotion. Either way, kudos on making a pretty interesting map. I'm fond of maps that are original, and this is one of the few I play quite often. Thanks for putting the time and effort into it.

    Thanks for the feedback 3LF. It's look like I miscalculated the Fire + Lightning damage formula, I gonna check that. About the graphical lag, I would like to ask about the configuration of your computer, because in my old computer (that not even have a video board), the only spell that causes lag is the fire + lightning fusion, wich I will have to reduce the amount of effects.

    If you don't mind, I would be glad if you make me a list of the OP heroes and the heroes on the weak side.

    Thanks jjenova. At start I had a lot of free time, but now it's more for the devotion, but this 1 year is just the release time, I've working on this map for 3 years. ^^

    Well, the computer is quite good, more than capable of playing newer games at higher settings - the person I was playing with commented as well. The fire+lightning fusion froze us up for pretty much the entire duration. The other case where the graphical lag became too much was using the earth+anything fusions at higher ranks, where the 5 rocks covered in fire/lightning/water make things slow to a crawl.

    I'll play the map quite a bit more with a friend and try to get a complete list of heroes that are abnormally weak/strong. The only gross exception to balance I've seen was the Shaman though, the weaker heroes aren't massively so. The shaman's fire+lightning fusion, however, obliterated everything instantly.

    Ok, I will be waiting for the list. Meanwhile I already fixed and balanced the Fire + Lightning fusion and I will see what I can do about Earth fusions. =)

    DNA Manipulator: I kind of get what he's supposed to be, but he takes too long to switch between forms, and for too much mana, to justify the weakness of his spells. Ultimate Form and Sasquatch Form are the only ones that are worth using, the Satyr and Reaver forms don't have much of a purpose. I could see stunning in reaver and then using satyr to blinkstrike to them, then swapping to either ultimate or sasquatch if form reversion didn't have a cooldown and the shapeshift didn't have a delay. If you don't want him to be able to swap between all of his forms and cast all of his abilities very fast for high burst damage, maybe it'd make more sense to make all of them metamorphoses like Ultimate and making them more useful? I understand that the point of the cooldown, cost, and shapeshift cast time was to keep him from using all of them at once and make him pick the right one for the job, but they're all really subpar at the minute.

    Templar Mage - He's fun to use and really not that badly off compared to a few other heroes, but he's far from powerful and the orbs feel like they should do something while they're out, instead of just picking them up and tossing them constantly.

    Puppet Master - Okay, going back and looking at him again, he's a bit of a mess. His reanimated units don't do a whole lot and his swap isn't very strong - or it wouldn't be if it worked like the tooltip said. You can swap with *anything* but allies. Enemy heroes, enemy BUILDINGS... if he were just fixed so that his swap wasn't bugged though, he'd be competing with Manipulator for weakest hero. Just seems like maybe his aura should be better? I like all of his abilities, his reanimation just doesn't seem to help much. The inner demon is awesome though.

    Shadow Ninja - The bonus agility should probably cap somewhere along the line.

    Alchemist - Probably my favorite hero if shaman isn't, but he's very painful to play for the first 15 levels. All I can say is that it'd be great if his fire bombs did more damage, or allow him to hit himself with his buffs. I know he's more supportive, I just wish the earlier levels were a little less painful.

    Death Knight - Didn't get a chance to look at this guy until recently... he's not as bad as shaman was, but his death coil is very long-range, easy to time, and does great healing/damage for its' cost. His ult is potentially insane, the summons hit like mack trucks and get great lifesteal at higher ranks.

    Elune's Spectre - Well, this is more of a personal preference, but I always hate playing heroes in AoS maps which are useless all day and beasts at night. I respect that some people like this kind of hero though. If a hero is based on a day/night mechanic, it's more interesting to me if they change roles from day to night instead of becoming a wimp. Really just mentioning this as an afterthought, because it'd require a lot of work and a completely new ult...

    Ok, did you try playing against someone using the Revenant form? Try that before saying this form don't worth, I am sure you will chance your mind. I agree with you about the Satyr, I don't like him either and he is in my to do list.

    The DNA was built to use only 2 forms per time, not all 4. That's why he can combo in pairs, like Sashquach + Satyr, Reaver + Sasquatch, etc.

    The orbs are meant to be just a visual effect, but if you think they should do something else, feel free to post ideas in my idea thread. =)

    Yeah, the Exchange of the Spirit wasn't supposed to target anything, somehow a trigger wasn't working correctly. Fixed. About its utility, the Puppet Master is fragile hero, he can't stand against other heroes and that's why he has 700 attack range and this spell.

    Exchange of the Spirit is a "flee spell", just to take you out of combat, or in if you want, and has the additional bomb effect.

    About the Reanimation, its a good spell to create push or to force the other team to retreat a little. Specially if you upgrade your waves, use summoning items and complete the Base Reapers achievement.

    This hero is a trick one to use and requires more than just the hero itself.

    Maybe you are right here, but is not that easy to reach a high amount of agility, most of the time it happens the game is almost over.

    Ok, now you are saying that the only potions that worth are the Hallucinogen Compound, Mute Solution and Death Potion? He was meant to be strong only after level 6, but all the potion you gain at level 12 are strong. I already chance the position of Faerie Mixture and Blood Residuum, but I am pretty sure that the Punisher Composition and Sorrow Formula are very dangerous if you use it correctly.

    Easy to time in static targets, at long range you need lucky to hit another player, but even with the Death Coil, he can't do a lot since he is not a strong hero, and has low mana.

    I will take a look in his ultimate.

    Elunes Spirit is in my to do list too. I don't like her two first spells. Again, if you have any ideas, go to the SoW Idea Thread. =)


    Anyway, thanks for such a feedback, I hope you can bring more. +rep

    I did try him in revenant, it seemed weaker than sasquatch to me but maybe I was using him wrong. The problem I had was that his spells were short-range, didn't make a whole lot of sense for it to be his long range form...

    I wasn't saying that his L12 potions aren't useful, only that on their own they aren't much of a threat, this was a 1v1 game so it'd probably be a lot more useful if I had another hero to support with them. The main thing was that the potion he starts with, which is his only *real* offense until 16, is much weaker than it really needs to be.

    I'll throw some ideas out in that thread though. Thanks for reading.

    Shaman is way less crazy now. Still potent, which is good, but the lightning+fire fusion went from being "what the f**k just hit me" to "standing on the bright red death trail hurts". Still experiencing some graphical lag when summoning rocks... and it gets very bad when using L4 rocks with any other elements. The person I play with is getting it as well. It seems to be largely due to the additional rocks though, at lower ranks it doesn't create problems. When you drop a firetrail, a storm, zap it, and then summon rocks... it gets to be out of control. So while he is imbalanced, he still creates graphical lag issues.

    I played against Manipulator again, and even the little changes to his shifts helped him a lot.

    Still need to try Alch and Death Knight again. Great changes though. Shaman is a lot of fun to play now, even if he can't quite go all-out yet without making the lag unmanageable.

    Hi.

    Skar I´ve got to say that your map has really great potential and you seem to be updating it from time to time. I find it enjoyable to play with friends.

    I won´t go into heroes because my main concern are your achievements. They tend to mess up constantly in each and every game, but the idea is good. Some achievements work just fine, the ones you get for reaching lvl X first etc. The hassle are the ones that make spawns stronger, because in each game I´ve played so far they can happen anywhere from 1 to 15 times or so for one team. Considering an average at 5 or so, the army gets way to strong for the "lucky" team and they win in no time after that.

    I havn´t read all previous comments so I don´t know if this has been brought up before, but if im not mistaken the lower lane for the "good" side doesnt have any protective units(the 3 units that respawn after being killed next to towers) at their first tower, which is a great advantage for the "evil" team.

    Good luck and keep going.

    @3LF

    I know that if you fuse all his spells it still lags, it's because I tryed to create some nice visual effects for him. About the Earth Shield fusions, I think the only way to remove its graphical lag is removing some visual effects.

    @Maartz

    Wich version did you play? I noticed the achievement bug in version 1.0 and tryed to fix it in this version.

    About the outposts units you are right, somehow they are not respawing.

    @blek121

    Thanks dude. =)
