Proposal New Hero: Stoick

Kratos Giantsbane

Hipparchus
Summary: A New hero to dodge negative spells on Troops.

Description: This new hero should be able to render negative spells like Zeus's Rage, Sea Storm, Desire and Wisdom useless. The probability that the hero succeeds in dodging these spells can be made similar to that of what Democritus has. At level 1, while Stoick is travelling alongside an attack wave there is a 22% chance of dodging the applied negative spells. At Level 20, this increases to 60%.


Reason: It is pretty much left at the hands of the defender to Zeus Rage/Seastorm a fully built myth wave/a massive OLU wave/sometimes even the CS. Adding a Hero who may prevent these effects will make the game more interesting. I dont see how this hero can be abused too much. It will only be one wave and the attacker is giving up his other Offensive Buff Heroes for a chance to land all his troops safely.

Hero Description: Stoick with his massive beard observes the negative spells cast on a travelling party, thus ensuring a safe passage to all his companions.

just wow! I love it.

the only thing I would add is that more and more players, teams are able to seastorm all naval escort of a CS due to their advanced favor farming techniques, which is smart and professional but too easy compared to the efforts that timing requires to land a CS. Stoick would make it hard to defend a CS attempt with spells alone, not impossible... these are the type of changes that can make the game more interesting.

However for it to even have a chance of being considered, maybe this should be re-posted into german externals, they already made 2 heroes from community ideas, while not even looking at EN externals for ideas, if we want to see this interesting idea have any chance, repost it into german externals, talk to Bernie in our ally he can help you translate this and give you link where to create a thread

nice idea
only criticism is that i think it needs to stay with the greek theme for it to be considered
change the name/ persona and i think you have a better shot
hermes might be good except that he's a god but fits the trickery and dodging

New, interesting mechanic. It'd be nice to see this hero, and I don't think it's unbalanced with the proposed mechanics and percentages. My only concern is the naming of the hero; Stoick doesn't fit with the Greek theme and may well breach copyright laws if the appearance is similar. Perhaps Aeneas would be a suitable choice, as a hero from Greek mythology who was protected by some of the Gods during the Trojan War?

I think is a good idea but rests solely on the worth of a one time thing per instance, when an instance can still amount of say over 100 attacks.

Real world would say eventually when of those 100 attacks in an instance the hero could be used singularly still over 20 times.

Instead of avoiding, (God Abilities), how about reducing the damage or impact?
