I'm constantly thinking of new Dota 2 heroes.
My latest attempt at that concept came to me yesterday while playing Ogre Magi. I admit the hero will be more buggy than all the other heroes combined but will be interesting to play with or against.
Name is KingOfDice.
Ranged, Agility hero
4 skill sets
Upgrading the first skill good gives you a random ranged compatible skill out of all the agility heroes
The second skill, gives you the same out of strength heroes
The third skill, gives you the same out of all intelligent heroes
The ultimate will be random excluding mele related passives if any.
However the ultimate will need 5 seconds of channeling and unlike the rest of the abilities that don't change it has a 3 minutes time limit where you have to random the ultimate again. (You can't reuse the same ultimate)
The upgrade tree
50+ damage – +5 mana regen
- 10 agility – + 10 strength
Instant ultimate channeling – 2min CD for new ultimate
Keep ultimate infinitely – change ability timeline ( you get the option to choose a different ability from any of your 3 spells and have it at the same level of your current unwanted ability
This is the new and improved Morphling replacement that can't become boring, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the concept.
