Proud Supporter Of S2, Deal With It
IsmaelVera for President
Wow, he looks amazing! I'm sure he'll be tons of fun
Don't you think the skillset is pretty uninspired? Not to say that a lot of other heroes would've been all that inspired either, but man, the same spell twice with slight differences + enhanced tornadostick + Mordekaisers passive.
Granted, the shield is an OK idea even if it a replica of Mordekaisers passive in LoL, but why is it on this hero? Like, he has whole lot of burst magic damage, a stun and a slow, hmmm what else can we add, oh how about a blink or a charge or a skill that lets him soak damage? Just something to boost his survivability. Well, throw the dice and see which one we are gonna go with. What are the downsides supposed to be?
Then the visuals. Lifted trees look OK, but creeps fling around like they would be placed into a centrifuge. Why? Its too violent, and thus distracting. Some of the floating/flying animations also look jerky, as if the origin that the objects orbit around would violently warp around as opposed to shifting around smoothly.
The tornado effect is way too big, its like that ghost effect on revenant. Its distracting because its just some blue **** flinging around violently and covers a lot more space than it needs to.
Another thing is the blue rocks orbiting around the hero itself. They are alright on their own but why are they affected by the heros facing? Like, if you turn, the rocks turn with you. It looks stupid.
As a final note, how hard is it to craft something you can call your own as opposed to creating a popculture reference, rip off other games or do male -> slutty female transitions for your alt avatars?
This post is probably going to get deleted since I didn't sugarcoat it.
Tanky as **** and loads of aoe damage, typical s2 hero
You had some arguements but they're not strong. I like this hero and I now know why stormspirit was nerfed (new hero).
I get your points but the way you present them is ridiculous and insulting.
Check out my hero design, The Condra:
Rate it and please leave feedback ty
Can he throw neutral creeps?
Parasite inside a Minotaur?
Seems that if you catch him out in the open, such as in the river or inside either of the bases, he's pretty screwed as far as damage goes. Puzzle box will be core to help with this problem? Maybe?
To my understanding, stormspirit was nerfed because the handful of people who S2 ever might listen to that are not S2 employees or rabid brown nosers made an effort to get it nerfed. The reasoning being that it was used to save an ally from certain death with tornado --> shrunken.You had some arguements but they're not strong. I like this hero and I now know why stormspirit was nerfed (new hero).
Massive AoE damage?
He has 1 AoE spell, his ultimate. And as Viole said in Reddit, it's on a long cool-down.
He needs to do magic damage in order to tank a bit.
What happens if he gets silenced? No tanky
What happens if he gets stunned? No tanky
Whay happens if he runs out of mana? No tanky
What if he has loe Base Str and low Str gain? No tanky

We've taken a number of steps to reduce those problems while also making the item a little more difficult to get for a support hero.
Looks like a well designed hero actually. They tried making a hero with useful abilities that vaguely synergize but without making the hero all powerful by including subtle drawbacks with obvious counters. You can see this design philosophy with Grave Keeper and Draconis...but I think they over did it with the safeguards on them.
Hopefully this hero will actually be viable.
[EDIT] The discussion on Stormspirit would be such a moot one if S2 would just realize their initial folly and revert the item to it's original state of only working on yourself and enemies.
is this only me who think that this hero is not only OP but spammer like hell.. Combine him with artesia and grave and u got the ggame so easy!
