edit. 10/22/09 changed wording on symbiosis to maybe make it a little clearer to read.
edit. 10/23/09 changed name of ult. funuguses dont photosynthesize. instead changed it to growth. funuguses are still able to gather nutrients from a variety of diversified sources. just so happens the sun is not one of them. also removed day time requirement.
edit. 10/28/09 reworked ult less regen but combined with budding. new skill phosphoric armor. added pros cons. ty for feed back guys i know i didnt change ultimate exactly how you wanted it but i did honor fact ult needed something more.
edit. 11/1/09 changed charges to go off every 3 sec
11/5/09 made it to popular suggestion ty guys
11/16/09 added some fungaloid stats

I like him frankly... Though he may be a little bit underpowered and may not scale well in the late game, that said... he will make for a great tank late game!
His spells compliment him very well I think, I like the little AOE suggestions for when he incurrs dmg.
Def a great farmer to build up items for late game epic tankage. I would think about adding some type of slow or something with the fungaloid explosions
I agree with Azzy, maybe the minion fungi can leave behind a small, slowing, smoke cloud?
Other than that he seems very balanced and i would looove to play as him.
Edit: Actually, would that be balanced considering the .1 stun?
i like the theme( thow ive already seen it and liked that hero a lot) and the 1st and 3rd powers are good. but i dont like 2nd and ulti. ulti is wrong i think, fungus dont need sun(acording to plants vs zombies) and the 2nd i realy cant read.
ok im not sure how scaled his ult would be cause i got not much ot compare it too. if someone knows how to do the math that would be epic.
also thinking of making the actual spore cloud from his spore ability have an aoe slow inside it so it can be more useful outside of creep waves.
thanks for replys keep em comming
oh and as another note i relized after that funguses dont photosynthesize. perhaps i could change name of ult somehow but i still want it to work the same way. any suggestions on this to flavor wize would be awesome

Nevermind didn't realize Budding was the same affect. I do like this hero, but possibly add attack/movement speed to his ulti? Somewhat like Alchemist on DotA

i see how budding is similar so imma add armor bonus to budding i think. gonna mull it around the ole noggin a bit. love to hear some feed back if people think it needs it. or another idea is to generate a dif kinda fungaloids for budding effect.
suggestions on second type of fungaloid for budding?
i LOVE IT !!!! really cool hero idea the only set back for me was the ulti only usable at day should be some weak night action aswell
I really like this hero.
Skill 1 - I just want to know if there's a damage or spawn cap to this. I would think something like 5 or 6 would be appropriate.
Skill 2 - Very useful both offensively or defensively. I like.
Skill 3 - It's a very useful tanking ability. It doesn't seem drastically overpowered, 40 damage counterattack is pretty weak, though it is aoe. I could see maybe a magic armor or armor reduction fungaloid being really useful here.
Ult - Is this passive? Does it happen all day long? Does it have a cooldown? More info would be good to know to judge how strong this ability would be. If it is passive with no cooldown, 300% seems ungodly. He will simply never die.
With level 25, a behomoth's heart, 2 fortified bracelets, steamboots and a lifetube, he's getting 37 health per second back, without the benefit of behomth's heart 0.75% of max health regen X 300%. It's insane!
HONOR- If you need it defined, you don't have it.
I love theme
hope to see it in HoN soon
u may change skills
don't change character design
thanks for all comments keep em comming. oh and about spawn cap on his ability im thinking no. even if u somehow could rassel up 30 of em which is pretty hard to do it's do only 1200 damage. i say only cause keep in mind they attack nearest enemy. so u prolly wont get hit with full amount unless u stand on a giant pile of corpses. also imma need to rework it cause at the moment it seems its worded to be continuous spawn explode recycle h4x where one just instant spawns.
so imma thinkin perhaps a long death animation for fungaloids would balance this.

Skill 1 and 3: what if the fungaloids have nothing left to attack? Maybe a 5 second timer they auto-explode if they don't reach anything?
Voted yes, but I think you need to make his ult more interesting.
Please check out my suggestions!
ya i know his ult seems boring. im a lil afraid of adding to manny bells and whistles. i beleive simple charecters are best. not saying fungus king is simple but i rather not clutter him with cool stuff and gadjets till i get more feed back but i value what ppla re saying.
Well the concept is quite fun but actually have little synergy in it. Well it the fungaloids would dmg also you the Symbiosis wouldn't be useles to cast on enemy. In late game it would be the only skill that he could kill with.
His tanking ability with his ultimate are outstanding and he could really really fast return to combat after some beating up... Well that a good point i think.
Generally a quite nice concept but I personally wouldn't play him...
I have a great idea to promote synergy and change the ult.
Causes mushrooms to spawn in his footsteps. Mushrooms heal the king slowly and damage enemies slowly.
Then when he attaches to heroes the mushrooms can spawn right under both of them, healing him while hurting the enemy hero.
