Yes, I love the concept
Yes, but I think he needs some changes
Maybe, but I want to see some serious changes first
No, I don't think he fits into HoN
No, I just don't like him
I don't want to start posting about this hero just now. I want to say some things first:
1. The concept of this hero is based on a friend of mine. Yes, a real life friend. Me and another friend once tried to annoy him a bit and...oh well, I don't really want to continue but this hero came out of it and I just liked the concept to much to not post him.
2. I already wrote a background story but all I wanted is to make a little fun of my friend and cause of this the story is not that great, but I will still post it. I also will write a new story and I would be happy if you could tell me which one you liked more. The old story parts will be shown as spoilers. One Story is about a Ninja, the other about a...well you will see.
3. Criticize everything you dislike please.
The discovery of an abandoned child sure cause a big ruckus in Leshrack, the famous fighter village. The strange thing was not the child itself, it was the fact, that someone left enough money with the child to pay for 10 years of a decent living and the message, that said "Grow him into a good man!". The child grew up and as he reached the age of 5 he was brought to a famous Ninja Clan. He got trained to fight like a master. And he had talent! In a few years he mastered his school and as he reached the age of 15 he was sent into the war. At first he was excited to finally be able to show off his skill but then he saw the real face of war and broke mentally down. He would have died for sure if he did not meet a certain person. This person was widely known as "Hammerstorm" and a little bit older than Markus.
As Hammerstorm saw, that Markus suddenly fell on his knees and let his guard down, even tough he could have been killed easily, he suddenly thought, that it would be a waste to let this person die. He saw him fighting, he was at the same age as him and he obviously had a lot of talent. And cause of this he ran to Markus and protected him. As Markus saw this he suddenly was able to fight again, most likely because he wanted to protect the person that saved his life. And they fought. And they survived.
Since that time Hammerstorm and Markus always fought together and are now protecting the Legion from the Hellbourne.
Markus is a human, a bit smaller than Hammerstorm. He is dressed completely black and carries a big sword on his back. But he never uses his sword, except for his abilities, his normal attack animation is a punsh.
Pri. Str.24 + 2,8
Agi. 19 + 2,0
Int. 16+ 1,6
An ancient ninja technique, mastered and perfected by Markus. He jumps three times forward, dealing damage to everybody he lands nearby by using his fists and feet. As his speed increases per jump, the damage he is able to deal increases also.
Markus jumps three times forward, dealing rising dmg on each landing point and stunning on the last one.
Jump 1: 50/75/100/125 , landing point is 200 units away from starting point
Jump 2: 125/150/175/200, landing point is 200 units away from first landing point
Jump 3: 200/225/250/275 and 1/1,5/2/2,5 seconds stun, landing point is 200 units away from second landing point
Markus jumps forward, either landing on his hands or feet. He does NOT attack, since it would look stupid. Something like this (Yeah, my photoshop skills suck):
A technique taught by Hammerstorm. Since Hammerstorm is no longer able to fight with a sword, due to an injury, he wanted to pass his style on and taught this to Markus. Markus is now able to quickly attack with his sword, attacking everybody in his range.
Markus uses his sword to deal minor dmg,stun and push away enemys around him.
Pushes enemy units 100/150/200/250 away from the their last position and stuns them for 1,5 seconds.
Markus takes the pose of the Ninja in the picture above. Then you see a light and everybody gets pushed away.
A forbidden technique. No one knows where Markus learned it and how he is able to perform it, but he won't tell anyone, not even Hammerstorm.
Markus creates images, spawning right beside him.
Creates 1/1/2/2 images of Markus, dealing 15/30/45/60% and taking 300/275/250/200% dmg.
The images will use every ability Markus uses and will walk the exact same pathes as he does. They can walk over everything and as soon as Markus starts attacking the clones will start attacking to, damaging everything in a 100 radius in front of them. The clones spawn 150 units away from Markus, one on each side.
I think this skill is more complex then the others and may need a little bit of explanation, if it is that way, just say it, I will post one.
Markus found his sword after a big battle right in the center of the remains of it. It stuck in the ground and emitted an aura that scared him. But he took it non the less. The instant after he touched the sword he knew that this sword is evil. Cause of this he can only use it for a short duration, otherwise it would possess him and start a rampage, killing everything in it's path.
Markus draws his sword and starts fighting with it. But he can only use it for a Duration of 15 seconds. The player has to cancel it before he reaches this limit otherwise he will lose the control over Markus and Markus will attack everything in reach, still using his sword, for another 15 seconds. During this time Markus will recognize everything as enemy, therefore all effects he does while attacking will apply on everybody. He switches the target every 3 seconds, attacking the person closest to the last person he attacked.
Duration: Maximum of 15
Gives Markus a splash attack with a radius of 150/250/350 and a 20% chance for a 2,0/2,5/3,0 critical strike.
Well that's it. Please leave a comment with your opinion and suggestions over this hero. As usual, judge the concept, the numbers can be changed easily.

I think the hero is pretty cool, but I tried to picture this hero with the other heroes in HoN. In my opinion he doesn't fit with in with them. I don't want to tell you to change the visuals of your hero because I think it would change the concept, so it's your choice.
