Builder - EDIT: Might wanna call him Engineer, since none of his abilities focus on his building skills
Main attribute: Strength
Attack type: Melee - 128(?)
Spell1: Fire Shotgun - Projectile-based damage, much like Soulstealers ulti, deals a ton of damage up close, projectiles spread out the farther away they are, and therefore deals less damage further away
Spell2: Hammer Smash - Melee-based stun, much like Dragonknight in DotA
Spell3: Shield Generator - Reduces damage taken from ranged attacks while inside
Ulti: Steam Turret from savage2 - might become a bit strong combined with Hammersmash

#HoN.no @ Quakenet - HELLO
love the ulti idea...... let it have very fast attack speed..then it would be so ************ sweet

It would really kick ass if his ulti put you in first person view, and it does more damage if you get headshots
Hey, and why not have a commander who could give orders and organize the team well ? And Every time you kill someone, the commander would have gold and build towers...
Ahhhh, i miss S2 !
But great idea anyway, i want to see this builder ingame !
I like it, except shield generator maybe should reduce ALL damage.
I have an crazy suggestion:
How would it be if the shield generator is exactly like in Savage 2?
Means: Totally no Damage from Ranged if you are under the shield + Towers can't fire withing the shield.
It would be balanced because every hero could just walk in and 1-2 hit the generator.
- early tower diving and hero killing
- pushing if there are no heroes to defend nearby
Zephyr should be deleted.
The ingame zoom should never be changed.
And last hit assist should be banned.
Why? No one should get what I don't like.
I can't wait until people start shielding their own towers in this game too! ;-p
(Disclaimer: This may be the dumbest thing you've ever heard. If it is, please don't hate / flame me for it)
I was wondering what it would be like to have a hero with an ability to repair structures. Seems like it could add a slightly different element to the game. However, I could also easily see the spell being both too specific (not getting used that much) and being over-used / focused on too much. Maybe somehow have a general support spell that could either work on buildings or other units? Or maybe just have a spell to create little towers.
Bah, I don't know... I'm sure it's a dumb idea. I'm going to post it anyway though just to see what people think, and hope that people don't yell at me too much...
What are his skill synergies?
His role in a team?
Why would a melee hero want a static shield from ranged attacks (well, besides avoiding some harassment during the laning stage and pushing a unguarded tower)?
Approximate stats on abilities?
Steam Turret is not creative at all as it efectively is a more autonomous version of Voodoo's ultimate. His skills seem rather dull and lack versatility imo.
All in all way too little information to tell anything about the hero and if he is fun / useful.
