Tablet of Intervention
This is my second idea for upgrading the Tablet.
The Tablet of Intervention contains a powerful glyph that allows the wielder to call for a supernatural intervention from their diety (Legion will have a shiny light visual effect, hellborne will have a dark rotten visual effect) onto a target hero.
This gives the Tablet of Command more of a support role.
With a 650 unit push and buff resistance, this item would be very useful for pushing an ally out of a variety of situations (landed ganks, chronos ult, panda ult, succubus ult, perma-stun, etc...)

+5 hp/s regen
Active Ability - Single Target - 50 mana cost, 25 second cooldown - Pushes target 650 units in the direction the unit is facing.
*If target is an ally they receive Blessed for 5 seconds.
*If target is an enemy, they receive Cursed for 5 seconds.
+4 hp/s regeration
Negative buff duration reduced by 50%
Health regeneration disabled
Negative buff duration is postponed until after Cursed is done
The push from this item disjoints attacks and spells that are being carried out onto the target.
Please comment with feedback on numbers and what you think about the concept. Thanks.

I really like the concept, but the numbers on the heal/armor seem to be a bit high!

Pretty expensive for the stats, perhaps add a damage / reduced armor effect for pushing enemies.

-Renamed to Tablet of Intervention
-Lowered armor buff
-Created an effect for use on enemies (basically 0.5x the effect on allies but negative)

Interesing item. A nice upgrade to the underused tablet of command. Good item for a support hero. Not very expensive, altought not cheap either, gives nice stats and is great for both saving ally heroes from the verge of death by both healing him and taking him away from danger. Very nice. Thumbs up, would love to see this in-game.
Also, I would really appreciate some feedback on my Astral Mage hero if it is not a problem to you ;)

Too many healing items as it is. Make it give + % movespeed on allies so it's more effective for chasing.
However, the items don't make sense at all. No support hero is going to want either of those items.

I'm bumping this for more votes! It's a really good idea!!!
04-01-2010, 02:32 PM
I love it.

I voted Yes, but I think that it's really Cheap for the effects.
Maybe you should add a recipe To my mind ...
Love the concept, but i don't see any justification for the Helm of the Victim.

Update - I changed this item around a bit. Let me know what you think. No longer heals, but alters armor and movement speed.
04-02-2010, 01:27 PM
Love bump for you!

Really nice idea! Would be a great tool for interrupting Ult's, especially in 2v2 it's gonna make a big difference!

Hell no. Does entirely too much. You could get 99% approval and this won't make it into the game.
04-02-2010, 05:36 PM
I disagree with the "it does too much" comment.
Although, you might want to knock down the bonus armor to say +2/3 and -2/3 as 5 armor is way too much. Particularly if this will stack with Shield breaker (as it will)
04-02-2010, 06:23 PM
thanks docterj. I I figured the ally bonus armor might not be too much because Shield of the Five grants +2 to everyone in a radius so in a way that's kind of a nerf since its just one person. I think that you're right about the enemy armor debuff though.
Forfeit, I could have everyone in HoN sign a petition saying they wanted an item in the game and I would still have next to no chance at having the item implemented. The item/hero suggestions are, as I see it, mainly to generate ideas about what could be added to the game, what the game could use or what it should not use. If you think that this item is something that should not be added, that's fine, but please state why. Thanks.

a 650 distance vector push + slow seems really really good (when used on enemies)
picture zephyr's gush with a 3 second slow added too it.
maybe just the push and the armor loss?
04-02-2010, 06:58 PM
I guess you missed this part.
Does entirely too much.
A vector push (op) for 650 range (op) combined with an armor buff/debuff? I see you removed the slow, which was also op.
04-02-2010, 10:09 PM
I didn't miss that part, but thank you for elaborating a little. I think you're right about the vector targeting though. I had added that because I'd seen posts about ToC using vectored targeting and I thought it sounded cool, but that could be really OP. It would also take the timing that is necessary with ToC out of the item. I am removing the vectored targetting. 650 is 150 units more than ToC. The armor buff and debuff plus the 150 push range are pretty expensive for an upgrade of ToC (1700 sumthin gold)
04-03-2010, 12:17 AM
Ok, without the vector targetting the range isn't a huge deal, I just don't think the armor + move has much synergy at all.
04-03-2010, 02:39 PM
Well I wanted to make the push more helpful/hurtful past the change in position. I reduced the amount of armor buff and added a Blessed/Cursed effect. This alters the duration of negative buffs. Let me know what you think. I'm just tryin to figure out what can be added to ToC to make its upgrade more useful, so let me know if you have any ideas.

I... simply.... LOVE THS SUGGESTION!!!!!!!

Tablet of Command is one of my favorite items and is massively underrated. However, vector targeting would make tablet a bit too strong and uninteresting.
The extra range, buff/debuff, armor and hp regen would be cool to see.
04-07-2010, 10:57 AM
i think it might be a little over powered but it could be fun to try for beta testing!
04-09-2010, 04:57 PM
Tablet of command is a great item love using it in pub games, maybe giving it some more utility by adding to it would make it more useful in other circumstances.
Please take a few moments to vote/comment on my hero suggestion!
