    Gear (steam golem)

    As always keep in mind numbers can be changed if you think its op in anyway which im sure it is suggest changes in comments. vote based off concept.


    image is not mine. taken from google images.

    Story. It is unclear who made Gear or what time and place his is from but upon the discovery of this anomaly it was clear that he must not fall into hellborne hands. Remarkably it was not hard to convince Gear to help fight for legion or for him to be accustomed to the fields of battle. The difficult part was to be sure to avoid the large jets of steam he vented out and to avoid the explosions.

    STR. 19 (2.0)
    agi. 19 (2.5)
    int. 15 (1.8)
    armor 3.1
    damage 48-51
    range melle
    attack cd .9
    ms 305

    role: Gear is a mix of dps, chase, intiator and nuker.

    pros:
    deals alot of damage
    fast move speed
    can ignore stuns and debuffs for set time.
    low ability cd
    good aoe

    Cons:
    needs active steam and mana managment
    deals damage to self and can stun self.
    item dependent
    vulnurable to heavy nukes or fast dps.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    learns impact rockets, steam jet, steam tanks and steam engine.


    Impact Rockets

    Gear's hand transforms into a rocket launcher and shoots out a fast traveling rocket in a straight line for 1350 units. explodes upon impact of enemy units or until it reaches 1350 units.

    upon impact does 50,75,100,125 magic damage
    stuns for .1, .2, .3, .4 seconds
    and generates 10 steam if steam tank is learned.

    mana cost - 25
    cd 4 seconds

    note: good skill for Gear to close in on enemies and generate alot of steam.

    Steam Jet

    Gear can take steam that is stored up to release a powerful stream of steam that damages and pushes enemies back.

    channeling
    lasts for 3 sec or until steam counters are used up. which ever is longer.

    deals 25,35,45,55 damage a second in 300 aoe cone + 25 aoe for each steam counter.

    also pushes enemies back 35 units for each steam counter.

    8 steam counters removed each second of channeling.

    mana cost - 125
    cd 35 seconds

    note: this is a skill to help with steam management. also useful for team battles and to help save you or an ally.

    Steam Tanks

    places tanks on Gears back that allow him to store steam.

    passive
    increase amount of steam charges Gear can safely hold.
    25,50,75,100 charges.
    recieves additional steam charges from enemy damage. gains charge every 50-75-100-125 enemy damage.

    if charges exceed tank limit gear explodes releasing all charges and doing 3x charges magic damage in 300 aoe around Gear to enemies and self.

    1 steam charge is lost every 1.5 second.

    note: this skill is what allows Gear to build up damage with some risk involved.

    Steam engine

    the very heart and soul of Gear. with just a few improvements Gear is able to unleash more power and destruction.

    passive
    adds damage to each attack for evey 3,2,1 steam charges.
    adds move speed for every 3,2,1 steam charge

    when charges exceed steam tanks value Gear goes critical for 2,3,4 seconds before exploding. if charges are dropped below tank value while in critical then gear does not explode.

    critical
    doubles charges gained
    disabling effects are applied after critical expires.
    debuffs already applied to Gear are debuffed and reset and end of critical.
    armor is set to 0

    active
    mana cost - 25
    cd-3 sec
    when activated Gear releases 10 charges and does 5x charges in magic damage in a 200 aoe radius around self.

    note: kind of a complex skill. allows to build up a ton of charges before doing alot of damage. suggest getting magic armor to lessen damage taken.

    great ideas. from the looks of it he is sort of pushing towards being a strength hero though cuz it seems you want him to get hit. however, it seems that if you do leave him unchecked the rockets and steam jets will just wreak some havoc.

    i like the idea, bt numbers need twaking i think
    and please remove the stun on the passive.
    passive stun is too powerfull, since it just farts in the face of tempest, electrician, pollywog, voodoojester that all work with spells that rely on channeling something near you while you die.
    and for "yeah because its the antipick" this is too powerful

    and right now lvl 1 is more powerful than level 4
    because you receive more charges for less damage, and need less charges to explode.
    which leads to less powerfull but much much much more frequent exposions

    lvl 1 2000 dmg = 40 charges = 1.6 explosions with 75 damage -> 120 average
    lvl 4 2000 dmg = 16 charges = 0.16 explosions with 300 dmg -> 48 average
    yeah numbers need alot of work xD

    i agree stun will be taking out but as for damage. i know what your saying about the aoe damage with more frequent explosions only problem is the damage it does to yourself. with such a tiny aoe chances are better you are killing yourself rather then other heroes.

    I agree with the earlier post about him seaming more like a str hero. Otherwise seems interesting.

    I reckon make the stun a mini-stun since he's an initiator, help break channels. And yeah, buff the AoE size.
