HellsingHellsing is one of the original members of the vampire counsel of ancient times. He choose the path of good, and helped slay his fellow brethern. Even still, he was hunted endlessly by the human race. He seeked a new world to live his life in peace. Through many life times of research he stumbled upon the lands of Newerth. As he stepped forth he quickly realized the great war between the Legion and Hellbourne. He raised his blade against the Hellbourn hoping to prove to his new found Legion allies that his vampiric presence could be a turning point in their endless struggle.

- Unkillable?Recommended Items
- Enchanted Marchers: Obvious movespeed and attack speed.

- Sacraficial Stone: You should be in the heart of every team fight, and the advanced mana regeneration is going to allow massive spamming of Life Draw.
- Symble of Rage: Advanced tank item and damage boost.
- Behemeth Heart: Late game tank gear probably making you unkillable.
- Mock of Brilliance: Combined with Life Draw could give you great AoE and Farming Damage. Get as soon as you can.Final Thoughts
Well this is version 2 of my hero. I took into concideration what everyone said, even the comment about the name. After rewriting a few things I actually feel like this hero could have amazing potential. Especially as a tank. Look at the change log for a list of everything I changed. Here is a link to the original version as well.

Thanks for the support whoever you were lol, please comment though. Feedback is what keeps these posts alive.
seems his aura is really weak, i think either buff the aura numbers or buff the range, maybe both.
I disagree with armies if it is based on the # of enemies in range. In a team fight with creep waves, you can essentially give you and your entire team +16 hp regeneration.
However, it won't do much damage either...
Exactly, its meant to scale with the game, and add to ideal of being a super tank in team battles. Think about it like this, at level 7 if you have it maxed, and say your in bottom lane with a partner against 2 other heros.
There is 5 creeps, and 2 heroes, making 7 enemies total. The enemies not going to feel much, only 1 hp loss per second which is still negative regen, however you and your allies will be benefitting from 7 hp regen a second.
Late game in a team fight, when you have two creep waves roaming togather, 5 heroes in a team fight, thats +15 or more hp regen a second to your whole team.
Thanks for the support.
It has a little luck base to it. The three fireballs could potetially hit 3 targets or 1, depending on how things went down.
If the 33% chance of Molten Rock triggered, then it would essentially be wave damage, similar to Pyromancer's Phenix Wave, or Invokers Meteor if your familar with it.
I like the idea, and am a fan of Castlevania.
Here's my suggestions, forget the ally boasting stuff, focus this hero on being a carry.
The life drain aura right now is wayyyyy to weak, +1 hp is nothing. I'd suggest changing it to draining something like 1/2/3/4 hp per second in true damage (if it was physical it means a hero with 20% armor would only take 4/5 of the already small number) from each enemy heroe and gives it to only Alucard.
As for the Bat form, I'd make the life drain exclusive to Alucard as well.
Overall though, I like it.
Check out and give feedback on my hero if you wouldn't mind.
I think the passive needs work. At level 4, (which if you maxxed asap is Level 7) you can suck 1hp per second. However, any hero with a strength level of 17 (even at level 1) can regen for 0.03hp per second, per strength. Therefore, a hero with 17 Strength from the beginning will regen 0.51hp per second. Furthermore, for each level, heroes that aren't strength will generally get a strength gain of around... 1.4 - 1.7 or so, depending on the hero. By the time they reach level 7, which is (if you max your aura straight away), a strength gain (without stats) of + 1.4 x 6 = 8.4 + 17 = 25.4 (Regen of 0.762) and also, with stats involved you gain an extra 2 in every stat, which is 2 strength. So, around this level, at level 7, you would be imagining even if you were permanently invisible around them, they would barely notice any damage taken at ALL as it would just regen too fast for them to notice it. At level 15, 1.098 regeneration per second is achieved without ANY strength items at all to boost strength. This basically renders your aura completely useless, as their hp would constantly stay 100% and not be affected by your aura, at all.
So therefore, your aura needs work. I would scrap the whole per second aura anyway, and make it an aura that helps your allies more than enemies or something.
However, the last part catches my eye, you said make it help your allies more then hurting enemies. Thats exactly what its doing. Its not meant to deal damage or be a threat. Its mean to heal yourself and your allies, depending on the how severe the enemies are around you.
With little or no threat of enemies around the aura is not very powerful, but with a huge swarm its going to increase everyone one on your teams regen drastically, expecially with true damage added.
Its possible to boost it slightly, but it cant get too out of hand as it could end up making your whole team unkillable late game.
That's why I still say to make it affect Alucard only, that way it's much easier to balance and makes him more of a carry.
I am not trying to build a carry though. I am trying to build a tank, and team fight support based hero.
All over the forums people are complaining about how they keep adding more and more carries for "pubs and noobs" to fail with.
I wanted to add something else to the mix, and since theres only 1 real tank in the game which is legionaire, I wanted to add to that pool of heroes.
i think that his first skill and his third skill have some different problems.
firstly, i dont see how the first skill fits thematically with your hero design (fireballs on a vampire? explain it better), and i dont think that a pure nuke has much of a synergy with your hero's other abilities
secondly, i think his passive is a little weak. early game youre too far away for it to even matter, late game the hp/sec is negated by passive str-based hp gain.
an idea i had while looking at your hero is to change the first skill slightly, make it so that each 'missle'(fireball, or whatever you change it to) does less damage per hit, but make the missles apply a debuff that make the target lose 1% hp per second for every debuff hellsing has on him. so that with his passive and ultimate, he'd be taking 3% extra hp per second for a while, synergizing it sufficiently and making the hero an actual threat.
vold held for now, make me vote yes :P
Check out my Hero idea(Phantom lancer inspired); The Swordsman, Now in Popular suggestions!
Also check out my entry in the agi pusher contest, Moira(formerly harmony)
As far as the Aura goes. I dont quite understand what you mean that you will be out of range. This is a melee hero, he will be on the front lines, the only ones possibly outside of its range is actual ranged heroes hanging back. Also, I am not sure if you read this before or after I updated. He is gaining extra damage from Heroes now, also regardless of regeneration rate of enemy heroes, the aura itself is True Damage.In Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Alucard is initially a boss encountered over the course of the game by the primary protagonist, Trevor Belmont. If the player defeats Alucard, he can be utilized as a playable character in the game. This was a significant departure from the first two Castlevania games for the NES, which only featured Simon Belmont as the primary playable character, and Alucard's abilities, a fireball attack and the ability to transform into a bat, were unique elements introduced into the series. Following the defeat of Dracula and the game's conclusion, Alucard voluntarily goes into a protracted sleep to ease his feelings of patricide and to prevent his powers from harming the world.
It wont be effected at all. It will deal maximum damage no matter what. The aura itself is not meant to be a dps type aura, but rather a survival type aura. Imagine a team fight, everyones there. 5 heroes, say 2 creep waves. Thats 10 regen per second from heroes, and another 10 regen per second from the creeps. That makes 20 Hp regen a second to yourself and all your allies just by you standing there.
Lastly, you mentioned about making the hero an actual threat. Before all he is meant to be a Tank, and meant to Survive, while boosting your teams survival as well. But if we are speaking damage terms, say his 33% Molten Rock triggered, thats 375 Damage in a line, his Life Drain only has a 4 sec CD, it would be quite similar to Quills on Armadon, and his ultimate gives bonus true damage, as well as makes enemy heroes lose a % of their life per second.
When it comes down to his ability to survive, plus the actual damage he is dishing out as an AoE none the less, hes actually dealing more DPS then heroes like Armadon, Legionaire, or Electrician who are all considered main tanks in HoN.
I hope that is convincing enough.
