The Top Hat
Primary Stat: STR
Sound and Visual Design
A Top Hat! The hero model would be a floating top hat. While idle, it could rotate slowly, but it would 'fly' straight. The attack animation would show the Hat tipping back, with bunnies flying out and exploding on the target. If you look into the Hat, you see no bunnies.
Mr. Mysterioso was the greatest performing magician in his homeland, and he was widely known across some lands. Eventually, he became enfeebled with age and had to give it up, becoming a succesful businessman.
The Hat he used during performances was lost in the transition, and has since re-appeared with its own motives, its own allegiances, and its own supply of bunnies.
The Hat would be a support/tank with gank support and a unique buff with some ranged damage ability
Strength: 24 + 2.1
Agility: 18 + 1.8
Intilligence: 20 + 1.5
Nothing in the Hat...
The Hat gets better at suprising people with bunnies
the Hat gains increased range and attack speed, and the bunnies get more potent.
1. +50 attack range, 20 attack speed, bunnies damage in 25 radius
2. +100 attack range, 35 attack speed, bunnies damage in 50 radius
3. +150 attack range, 50 attack speed, bunnies damage in 75 radius
4. +200 attack range, 65 attack speed, bunnies damage in 100 radius
Balance: the attack speed amount needs balancing by professionals.
Visual: no visual needed
Now You See Me?
People often think the Hat is actually being worn by an invisble person
this adds a periodic evasion effect.
1. 20% evasion, 4 sec CD
2. 25% evasion, 3 sec CD
3. 30% evasion, 2 sec CD
4. 35% evasion, 1 sec CD
Balance: the evasion must be higher than normal to offset the cd for the skill.
Because sometimes, bunnies are just a nuisance
drops a large amount of real bunnies over an area, slowing all enemies in the area for a time. the slow only works when in the area, if you move out it goes off you. likewise if you enter it.
22 second cooldown all levels, 100 / 115 / 130 / 145 mana.
Descriptors: [targetted, aoe circle, 1 second channeling ]
1. 400 aoe and range, 25% ms slow, 5 seconds
2. 500 aoe and range, 35% ms slow, 6 seconds
3. 600 aoe and range, 45% ms slow, 7 seconds
4. 700 aoe and range, 55% ms slow, 8 seconds
Balance: this is very slightly slower than jereziahs slow, with a bigger aoe, but you can just walk out. the CD prevents spamming during a chase unless its a long, long chase.
Visual: a bunch of rabbits shoot of the Hat during the channeling, landing randomly in the circle. they then stand around or hop a bit, whatever it is bunnies do
The epitome of high class, the Hat can make anyone look good!
The Hat jumps on an ally heroes head, making the hero instantly fashionable, and conferring buffs and effects:
-The stylish hero now has half the evasion granted by 'Now You See Me?' with no cooldown (10%, 13%, 15%, 18% evasion)
-the Hat can still attack, but without the benefit of 'Nothing in the Hat...'
-if the hero gets hit with a single-target magic effect, the damage and effect goes to the hat, knocking it off in the process.
-the Hat can get off at any time, by using the skill again for no mana.
-the Hat has no movement control and cannot cast Bunny Parade while being worn
55 / 45 / 35 second cooldown,
6 / 8 / 10 second duration
160 / 195 / 230 mana cost
Descriptors: [ press again to cancel ]
Balance: high mana cost could make it hard to use on every cooldown, so youd not want to waste it.
Visual: the Hat would fly onto the allies head, and rest there. when firing, it would tip back and fire as normal, but not fall off.
I'll add gear and playstyle etc sections in the future. anyquestions, please post
check back, as the rest of the group will be coming soon! up next: the Thimble
