I love the concept!
No - Why because...
Name: Aura Stone
Cost: 2220 gold (Major Totem x 3 (1620g) + 600g Recipe)
Flavor Text: "Feel the pressence"
+20% Aura Bonus
Formula ( B + B*20%)= F
Let's try it out shall we?
Life steal Aura for 15%
Equip this Item for + 20% Bonus
So B = 15
15 + 15 * .20 = F
F = 18%
Isn't math fun!
Visual: Increases the brightness of all the auras you currently use.
Heroes who would Benefit from using or being by the owner of this item:
Ophelia (All of her creeps get the bonus)
Glacius (for his Mana Regen Aura)
Magebane (when he blinks in and his Mantra Skill)
Bloodhunter (Blood Sense)
Added Formula for figuring out bonuses
Added Heroes who could benefit
Changed the Recipe

Hmm. Strange concept. Not bad, but not too good either. This aura will help a lot, but the high price for the Blessed Orb does balance it out, and 3k gp can easily be used for another item that could help more, such as another aura item. So I guess although at first glance this item is a bit imbalanced, it does have its checks and balances.
I'll vote yes just because it passes .
This item would help Ophelia, as her playstyle (if you play her with creep and not with the Dagon build) includes using creeps and using auras to support herself, her creeps, and her team. There aren't any "aura" heroes, but there are heroes that could carry this and help the team out.
Yes actually, this item shouldn't add a 5% to an aura. It should increase an aura somewhere from 5 to 20 %. So Skull would give 15 + 15*.05 = 15.75% Lifesteal Aura. Max would be 18% (if auras are increased by 20%). It'll be more balanced this way.
Thanks for the formula I put it into the top and hopefully people wont see 20% as + 20% like a 35% lifesteal!
Changed the recipe a little upon the request of Docterj208, he has a valid point.
An aura upgrading item sounds cool enough. The numbers are good for the cost now I believe, but I suck at balancing things.
I think that this will be a nice item to get mid-game if you were building up some totems for stats early game. Pretty cool because auras get better as the game progresses.
I like this idea, and your name made me lol. T-up.
Yes laughing is good. Thanks for the input and votes!
It certainly is an interesting concept... I could imagine this working... guess we'd just have to see. T-up for now
[17:23] <@Warchamp7> You can't spell 'Sucker sucks' without "Sucker sucks"
T-ups, the numbers are good too !!!!
At the very least increase the recipie cost. Currently its cheaper then a blessed orb.
Updated Cost to be more than a blessed orb.
Question! Does this aura stack with itself it put on multiple heroes? If so then waht would happen if arachna, andromeda, and moon queen all have level 4 aura's with this item. The damage output would be outragous. (Even though it already is even without this item)
