Whip swords, gigantic claymores, whatever.. The demonic form should retain a sword IMO.
It's hard to imagine what a 550 range sword would look like tbf. The sword is still there, its just not being used to harm people. In my headcanon, Maliken's sword is where his soul/demonic power comes from. His body is just a demonic/necrotic vessel that is willed into motion and created by the sword. So him drawing more power from the sword to enhance his body makes perfect sense to me.
I also feel that Nomad's sword is where all of his sand-based abilities come from. Like he's just a person that's skilled with a sword, but all of his otherworldly abilities stem from the blade he wields.
The sword doesn't need to be 550 range long. The sheer force created by its momentum would hurt enemies further than it can physically reach.
That's part of why I'm pushing for Parallax, not for Skrap.
And I wouldn't be against a Soulstealer 5-points on Souls,
with each of them adding 0/0.5/1/1.5/2 dmg and always a maximum of 40 souls,
instead of 2 dmg per souls and 0/10/20/30/40 souls maximum.

what do you guys think about terrorblade (dota 2) then? as in, his metamorphosis avatar/projectile vs his base form.
or are you talking strictly about keeping the sword because of his q?
Hate being griefed by someone who says he made his account in 10 seconds? Then click here!

Fractal Horns = Must have. Makes him super cool visually. lol
Nope. I'd possibly be fine with an attack based on summoning a bigass blade (Green Lantern like).Would you be ok if the sword shot magical projectiles instead of Maliken?
The Q is indeed a big reason why I believe the sword visual should be kept.
If they do that, it'd be interesting if they replace the splash by a 550 range line-cleave.
That could be cool looking indeed with fitting visuals.
My belief is that we await many balance patches..as dlift klanx...dsham..to OP
Kane's aura allows long range spam nukers (tb, ello, artesia..),since the first minute, such mad harras, that the lane is unwinnable from the other side.
oooh thats a neat strategy. I gotta try it sometime.
He also comes with a transform ability like Maliken's, but it also affects the illusions of himself he controls. :P
One hero - one idea :
Accursed - See Accursed thread in my blog.
Adrenaline - Fractures are melee illusions. Ulti now applies a restrain + vision reduction. Fractures are now spawned randomly in an area around the target and do more damage. They only activate when an enemy approaches (just like Monkey King's ultimate illusions in DotA 2). That means that they can damage other enemies. The enemy can now dodge fractures but it's nowhere a piece of cake with vision reduction.
Aluna - That hero is ridiculously empty thematically (because of its origin I'd guess). Put some emphasis on robbery. She has AS steal already and could possibly steal skill levels with R somehow (so bonus levels granted by red Emerald make sense). Make her a sexy, evasive thief.
Might do some more in the upcoming days. Holidays, wooo !

One hero - one idea 2 :
Amun-Ra - Give a time window to the player when the hero dies which he can use to choose an area around Ra's death location to rebirth. No longer triggers Ignite, but uses a meteor instead which shadow can be seen by enemies. Makes it more interactive overall and allows the player to either commit to a fight or try to leave it, reaching the other side of an obstacle.
Andromeda - Its effect on allies now slowly decreases when they leave its range (no longer stops immediately). Andromeda spends lots of time roaming, warding, scouting runes, etc.. and often isolates herself from her team with Void Rip in team fights. Thus, classic aura mechanics hardly make sense on the hero.
Apex - I've read a draft in playdota forums which would have been absolutely awesome for Apex (that guy doesn't feel like a demon king at all as far as I'm concerned). It specifically involves 1- cursing enemies in an area and resetting the curse if an enemy hero's debuff duration is removed prematurely (via dispel or death), 2- scattering sculptures firing mini-stunning arrows around to remind his enemies of the evil they vainly try to confront, 3- being able to sever the bonds of camaraderie on a target, allowing for friendly fire from its AoE damage (not debuffs) until it suffers from enough friendly damage, and 4- summon an indestructible pedestal of judgement and using allies to help him channel waves of hellish fire until the 13th wave which brings forth actual armageddon.
Please, please more nerf on klanx. Its not fair to play as golden, or as diamond with golden in teams and to have klanx in team. He should be banned before nerf. That kind of mobility just aint fair, and should be nerfed. Thanks
Shall he receive additional nerfs on HAWK, he'll need compensation somewhere.
