Cool concept of having the noob friendly hero a support hero (trying to make the new players get to learning the game faster).
Another thing about this hero I like is the idea of forcing (in a good way) the newer players to be supportive in the game. Noone likes a noob scout right?
If this hero has some value in a competitive environment I do not know but would gladly find out =)
Mahnd (Hand in latin) ???? 'Manus' means hand in latin

Btw, for everyone that voted the second option. Could you state what changes I should make? I would like to win your vote over to the first option. ;]
Edit: Changed starting stats.
Str: 21 (from 1.7)
Agi: 10 (from 15)

Ok, I have a question. When you stack poke up to 7 times, how much is the enemy slowed down by?
And completely unrelated, my friend and I made an rpg and we had a character that was like a knight with this ability called poke-stun.
Sorry man... simply not my cup of tea. This hero doesn't feel like he should be a part of HoN, in my opinion at least. Neat concept, interesting skills... but something about him just doesn't click with me.
Flick should have a stun/slow on enemies and a move speed increase on allies. You're being hit by a giant hand, you're not going to just brush it off. Also reducing the stack on poke to 4/5/6/7and 4/6/8/10% slow would even it out a bit early game. Otherwise funny and cool hero. I can already hear the sexual harassment complaints from Ophelia and Nmyph. On a side note he reminds me of master hand from super smash bro's. He should have master hand's crazy steroid induced open palm smack around.

Leveling up floating doom will now also make flick and poke stun targets for .05/.1/.15/.2 seconds.
Also changed the total amount of stacks poke can have to 7. (from 10)
And changed the scaling value to 4%/6%/8%/10% from 5%/6%/7%/8%.
I think these changes will encourage more diverse skill builds.
Edit: Didn't wanna make another post since I feel like im bumping this too much, but I just changed the stun value to .05/.15/.25/.35 I think that might be a better jump in values?

I like the style of the change, though I'm not entirely sure how much difference it makes in practical terms to go from .05 "instant" stun to break channeling to a .2 second micro-stun, but the thought is definitely in the right place.
For reference, Glacial Blasts, the Tempest ability which triggers tiny stuns every few seconds hit with .6 second microstuns. This does 1/3rd of that.
Still, I'd say keep those numbers for now, good change.

I think the second option is confusing people a bit. Since they think it's a thumbs up, but according to forum rules only the first option is.
Well, I get back home in 6 days. If you still want me to, I can ATTEMPT to trigger a test map. Unfortunately I can't guarantee anything, and the guy won't actually look like Mahnd, he'll look like a purple Kirby with a giant floating rock. However even if I can't get the abilities to work perfectly I could still show the basis of the viduals.
Just spread the word and make sure the voters pick the first option.
I need 25 votes on the first option to break 80%.
Make sure they pick the first option and not the second or it'll take even more votes.
(I bet I can get it into top suggestions faster by just making a new poll with only two options though.)
Closing at OP request.
