Whispering Helm Suggestion

Recommended Posts

Continuing this thread:

I propose slight different suggestion to what the thread did by following:

  • Components, stats, and activation remain the same.
  • Change lifesteal mechanic from only auto-attack to any single-target type damage.
  • No longer a component to Symbol of Rage. (Symbol of Rage components could be changed into Broadsword + Axe of the Malphai + Hungry Spirit + Recipe)

Thought process:

  • Symbol of Rage demands a little nerf because high-end item should tend to give the benefit later.
  • An optional lifesteal source to spell-caster while also still viable choice to auto-attacker as well.
  • Whispering Helm activation currently is nullified by its upgrade so it's such a wasted feature, better not to get an upgrade at all to keep the feature.

Bonus: Proposed Elder Parasite's line of item


Flayer (New):

  • Components: Helm of the Black Legion (2175g) + Elder Parasite (2000g) + Recipe (925g) = 5100 gold
  • Stats: 250 max health + 6 health regeneration + 15 attack speed
  • Passive: 10% lifesteal (lifesteal modifier) + 50% chance to block 70 damage (35 for ranged) from enemy attacks (only block half as much when damaged by gadgets).
  • Active (Activation Modifier) : 85 attack speed + 15% movement speed + 20% lifesteal + 100% chance to block 20 damage from enemy attacks (only block half as much when damaged by gadgets) + 15% damage taken. General parameters (cooldown and mana cost) are same as Elder Parasite.

Thought Process:

  • Reminiscence of Elder Parasite version 3.1.0.
  • Indirect buff to both Helm of the Black Legion and Elder Parasite.
  • Alternative upgrade to Helm of the Black Legion.

Edit: Optional Rework #2

Besides Symbol of Rage current state, there are some proposed changes:

  • Passively every 3 seconds grants 1 charge, up to 120 charges.
  • Automatically consumes 120 charges to revive first valid killed creep as a permanent owned unit
  • Owning the creep from this item has same limitation as Whispering Helm (non-ancient, non-boss creep in general).
  • Invalid creep doesn't consume the charge upon killing them.
  • Takes the nearest valid killed creep to be revived if more than 1 valid creep is killed at same time.
  • The owned unit grants 2 Mana Regeneration and grants 30% Movement Speed & Damage of the owner.

Thought Process:

  • This suggestion gives a reasonable feature for Symbol of Rage as Whispering Helm's line of item.
  • Whispering Helm's dominate creep ability will no longer poof away as Symbol of Rage takes its place.
