Yes, He seems awesome!
No, and i posted why.
Okay, its me again, this is my second hero. Thanks to samuel(Kneb) for coming up with the idea
Main Stat: Intelligence
Many years the mortal who many called "The Trickster" has wandered through the lands, living like a nomad and serving only himself and killing those who stood in his way. Even though the hellbourne has driven a constant war against eachother, the the trickster only fights for his own profit. But once again, the Trickster has taken up arms to fight. Because this time, the Legion/Hellbourne was the highest bidder.
Attack type: Melee
Attack range: 115
Movement speed: 310
Magic armor: 5
Strength: 19 /+2,2
Agility: 16 /+1,3
Intelligence: 21 /+2,3
A few sound ideas:
Voice: Whispering-ish, Man, Sinister.
"I'm already there."
"Will you make up your mind...?"
"Like a shadow."
"Slit their throats!"
"They will never see me coming."
"They are already dead."
"What is it?"
"I can disappear, anytime."
*Multiple voices takling at the same time*
"Die!" "Haha!" "Forward!" "Face me!"
*The real voice, louder and overwhelming the other voices*
*Some kind of scream* "Huaaaah!..."
"Fallen, into the enemies trap...ah..."
"Is this...the end...?"
The trickster looks like your typical ninja. Tight black shirt, legs, black shoes, and a black hood where only the eyes are visible. He got a red headband tied around his head, and also a red band tied around his waist. His attacks are up close, using hidden knifes up his sleeves, which comes out when he strikes the unexpecting foe (Think assasins creed)
Alright, this guy is a ganker and a little supportive i guess. He uses much tactics, so its hard to master him, but if you do, you could take on anyone. He tends to lure the enemies in a trap while he has blocked the exit routes. His Ultimate can also be used both for escaping as well as initiating and attacking.
---------- SKILLS ----------
Master of traps, he can make a makeshift trap in less than 5 seconds if he needs to. Setting the traps correctly can trigger a massive wave of stunning, giving you advantage you take down the foe.
Mana cost: 50
Cooldown: 10/7/4/1 seconds
Places a string holder (Like scouts wards) at target location (Not closer than 100 from an enemy hero). When placed, if any other string holders are in radius of 200/300/400/500, spawns a String in between the holders.
The holders and string has invisibility.
The Holders and strings has a 100 radius sight.
If an enemy hero or creeps crosses the string, it breaks (also destroys the 2 holders connecting it) and drags target along the ground in the direction it was facing when crossing (Imagine the hero "tripping" over the wire) for 1 second.
After the drag, causes 2/2/3/3 second stun to target and applies "Revealed" for stun duration.
Allows a maximum of 2/4/6/8 Holders at the same time.
Did i forget something?
Concept and idea:
Well imagine 2 of scouts wards, and a string in between them. if you palce 3 wards in a triangle around a hero, the strings also form a triangle (meaing one string can attach to several wards, if they are close enough. With this you can trap a stunned hero if youre quick enough to prevent them from escaping by putting tripwire around them. Smart eh?
Ah, the firebomb. The Tricksters own little evil invention. You need to ignite it right before you throw it tho, so it takes a second or two to get it away. Causes fire damage to target.
Mana cost: 75/125/175/225
Channeling time: 1 second
Deals: 50/75/100/125 Initial damage to target
After channeling, Throws firebomb at target location. The location is set on fire for 3/5/5/7 seconds, causing 10/20/30/40 Magic damage to enemy units in radius. The flaming ground applies "On fire!" to targest within its radiuswhich last for 3 seconds after leaving area.
"On fire!": Armor decreasing by 1/1/1,5/1,5 each second.
HOT! HOT! Here you take it!
The main idea is you get them stuck in a trap, then throw the fire bomb since its hard to hit a moving target with a channeling time needed. This also synergises with your aura.
The Trickster is always fully prepared for the tasks ahead, giving him a cleansed mind and clear thinking. This way he easier finds the vital parts in the opponents armor which he strikes, got a chance to stun on hit. Hes peace and calm also inspires other allies nearby giving them increases attack speed.
Applies "Ninja focus" to self and allied heroes within radius.
Adds a passive 10/20/20/30% attack bonus when attacking stunned targets.
Adds a passive 5/10/10/15% chance to ministun target on attack (Bash).
If the target is affected by "Firebomb", has a 15% of applying a 10% slow on target for 2 seconds and causing 15/30/45/60 extra damage to target.
Adds 2/4/6/8% attack speed increase.
Peave, Love and Understanding.
[R] Shadow Clones (Ultimate)
Years of practice in the art of decieving has learned the Trickster to create identical clones of himself, capable of placing 2 tripwires each.
Mana cost: 200250/250300/300350
Creates 12/34/56 clones. Applies debuff "Disguised" to self for 56/78/910 seconds. Each clone only has 1 ability, "tripwire" and has 100 mana. Each clones dies in 2 hits, has 510/1015/1520% of ninjas original damage and has 10/15/20% increased movement speed.
The ninja gains the ability "Possess". The ninja can target one of the clones and possess it, becoming it. But by using "Possess" all the other clones are destroyed.
Movement speed decreased by 35%
Alternate ulti ideas:
Have none at the moment, but please comment if you have ideas because some say the like the ulti and some dont.
Personaly i like it, but not so much that im not willing to change it.
So please feedback on that part!
---------------- ITEMS ----------------
Items that would fit trickster would be Movement speed increasing items, attack speed, intelligence of course and in the end go for frostwolfs skull, nullfire stone.
This hero also brings use of the VERY underused Tabled of command!
If you are smart, you can use the push to push enemys into your tripwire for the stun!
Thats about it. I personaly think this hero would be very very funny to play ingame and i hope you guys think so to and vote yes in the poll!! And dont vote no just for the lack of cncept art haha i can draw you some if you tell me how to add images, because i dont know.
just remember ALL THE NUMBERS CAN BE CHANGED.
Just post what you think about the overall hero!
Constructive criticism plz!
Tripwire tweaked. Always invis, 1 sec drag, 3 sec stun.
Firebomb semi-reworked. added some different variables, do make it less like a dull AoE.
Ultimate. Added suggestion by comment.
Name. Changed to Trickster
Grammar. Fixed some typos

I do like the this concept of tripwire - seems to be very interesting in combination of tablet of command
At first i thought he must be very fast since lvl.1 to get a real advantage of tripwire, but the ulti rescued that negative point
Cool! thanks for the support!
And when i thought of tripwire and tablet of command i lol'd too
Any special feelings about the numbers?
Focus could be a bit stronger maybe - hm...
The manacosts of your Ultimate are a bit high maybe, but u set him up as INT so thats okay i think
I thought Ninjas were more depending to AGI ^^
Pease look at my suggestion too ^^ (shown in sig)
yeah i didnt want to overpower focus, since it wil apply to your clones too and allies.
and yeah i put i kinda high so you cant like use it everytime someone ganks you because that would be a lil OP and as you said, he is int
what? you saying ninjas cant be smart?! >;(
ill look on ur sugg :P
like your hero,but you use way to much i wire,i have some suggestion maybe it will help
I have seen a move ninja assassin and he can throw 100 shurikens in 5 sec.Maybe if want to do this T-up BTW
thanks!! i agree about the wires, but you have to place them strategicly to make the useful!
and its only a total of 4 tripwires total (8 wards but u need 2 for 1 tripwire)
that would be a cool ulti or something, but i feel it wont fit my cincept :S cool idea tho and thanks for the support!
Bump please comment
BTW! if your ultis clones uses tripswires any other tripwires already set on anywhere on the map will be destroyed of course
Cmon bump it! plx comment if ya think my hero is good
check ninja assassin trailer maybe you find something that will help
NINJA! he sounds to complicated for me but cool
Yeah i know i thought about that, we will see what ppl think
Nice hero! i like the concept. like SCOUT but a more advanced and maybe ranged version. that requires a brain to master and precistion to fully bring his true power. i can really imagine playing him in-game. would be really cool
i kno rite? epic hero is epic
Please comment your opinions and vote
watch out for tripwires!
Bump plx comment
also i would like more opinions regarding if he should be melee or ranged
Yeah i did, but i also tought of my idea before i saw yours. so i was feeling kinda guilty when i made mine caus ei thought you guys whould think it was a ripoff :S
Yeah i know, if he was ranged i thought about kunais or shurikens.
i thought that it would be more action if you must melee because you ahev to chase them all the way to tripwire and not just run untill you see him and then range him .
Also i thought the clones would be cooler with melee and not ranged, because ranged clones are just so ugly
Ranged chasing is also gay haha
but still i dont know, someone has to come with a good argument with him becoming ranged
