New series - Heroes of the Storm Myths - Need feedback!

2 posts in this topic

Hello Icy Veins Community!


 


My name is SunGlare, self-titled "The Italian Gamer", being Italian and liking videogames. Clever, I know.


 


I did recently open to public my YouTube channel dedicated to Heroes of the Storm, with sprinkles of other games here and there.


 


Now, onto the matter introduced by the title.


 


Following a popular YouTube series called League of Myths, where the host answers questions related to game mechanics and interactions, I had the idea of importing it into Heroes of the Storm.


 


With this in mind, I concocted a Pilot Episode, to show you what I have in mind for the series.

It is based on objective data, tests and science, to bring answers and increase everyone's knowledge of the game.


 


That said, I had the help of a few of my subscribers and followers for the first few questions.


 


Now I need more!


 


You can submit them at starcastreplay@gmail.com


Or on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/SunGlareHOTS


 


Other then questions to answer, I need feedback!


What you guys think could improve the series? What should I include?


HOW SHOULD I NAME IT?


"Heroes of the Storm Myths" is the first thing that came to mind, but I can feel that there is something much more clever than that that I can use as a name for the series.


 


Thank you all for reading this and posting your feedback, I look forward to it!


I'll see you all in game. SunGlare.

Hello Renato,

I think that this is very good! Maybe we could feature it in our news, to give it some visibility, once you've done a few more instalments.

      You heard right. 
      Blizzard just confirmed it on facebook.

      Recorded proof for ya here.

      Out of boredom during long work shifts, I came with this idea to allow players to come up with their own concepts.
      In this thread you'll be free to create your own ideas of Heroes, Maps and skins. Shower thoughts are always nice, and I'd like to see your ideas. Plus, who knows, maybe we can send this to Blizzard and light some bulbs.
      Allow me to start with my idea for a Hero I've been wanting to see for a long time:
      HERO: Broll Bearmantle
      ROLE: Multiclass (Warrior/Assassin/Support)
      ABILITIES:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld (30 sec CD)
      Broll slip into the shadows, entering in stealth for 5 seconds. As soon as activated, Broll becomes invulnerable for 1 second. Players can move while in Shadowmeld, however, at 50% movement speed.
      • Q Skill: Mangle (6 sec CD)
      Broll mangles the target with his fist weapons, dealing increased physical damage.
      • W Skill: Barkskin (15 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as bark, reducing all damage taken by 30%. It can be cast on an ally, however the effect is reduced to 15%. Can be used while stunned or feared.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      Broll heals a target ally over time, for 15 sec.
      <This would basically function like Malfurion's Regrowth, but without the initial heal burst; however, the heal over time would be superior to Malfurion's.>
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Similarly to Rehgar, this is an instantly cast, where Broll shapeshifts into the Stag Form, increasing his movement speed by 20%. Other players can left click Broll and mount on him. Attacking while in this form causes Broll to slow opponents by 20% for 0.5 seconds, and causes him to revert to his normal form.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 1: Guardian Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Bear permanently for the rest of the match. His health is increased by 50%, however, attack speed is reduced by 20%. <Similar to Varian's Protection Heroic>
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Frenzied Regeneration (45 sec)
      In addition to the stealth, also gives Broll a shield, but its CD is increased by 15 sec.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Thrash (6 sec CD)
      Broll strikes all nearby enemies, dealing physical damage and slowing them for 30% and reducing their attack speed by 10%.
      • W Barkskin > Ironfur (30 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as iron, reducing all damage taken by 50%, however its CD is increased by 15 seconds. If cast on an ally, it will be default Barskin skill.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Might of Ursoc (30 sec CD)
      Broll invokes the spirit of Ursoc to deal damage and stun the primary opponent for 3 seconds, and nearby opponents are stunned by 1.5 seconds.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 2: Feral Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Cat permanently for the rest of the match. His movement speed is increased by 15%, and his attack speed by 75%. However, his attack damage is reduced by 20%, and his health by 25%.
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Prowl (10 sec)
      It now permanently puts Broll in stealth until he attacks or is attacked. He can now move at normal speed while in stealth, but no longer becomes invulnerable as soon it is activated.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Rake (6 sec CD)
      Broll rakes the opponent dealing high physical damage and causing a bleed effect that causes the opponent to take damage over 5 seconds. The damage of Rake is doubled while in stealth.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Broll becomes a cheetah instead of a stag. The movement speed is increased to 30%, but players can longer mount on Broll.
      • R Skill: Tiger Fury (60 sec CD)
      Broll goes on a Frenzy, increasing all damage done by 15% for 8 seconds, and causing Rake to deal its bleed as instant damage.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 3: Restoration Affinity
      Broll's mana regeneration is increased by 15%, however, his attack damage is reduced by
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Renewal (30 sec)
      It also instantly heals Broll by 15% of his maximum health, but its cooldown is increased by 20 seconds.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Typhoon (8 sec CD)
      Broll strikes the opponent with his fists, dealing small damage knocking them back. It also causes a small burst of wind that pushes all nearby enemies slightly. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation > Lifebloom (7 sec CD)
      Each healing tick is increased by 0.5% over 15 seconds, and after it expires, it blooms, instantly healing by a large ammount. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Wild Growth (60 sec CD)
      Broll heals the entire party instantly for a small ammount, followed by a large ammount over 7 seconds that decays per tick. Global range.

      This is just a brainstorm, like the title suggests. A lot could be polished or changed. I considered concepting the idea of having Rage and Energy for the Bear and Cat forms, respectively, but I think this would overcomplicate things. I am not sure if Shadowmeld should be a trait or a separate skill (assigned to the 1 key).
      Maybe Broll isn't the best pick for it, since he is probably just Guardian lorewise, but I couldn't think of another remarkable Druid.

      First of all, let's cover uploading your own logs:
      1. Go to the WCL site and sign up. You now would be able to upload your logs, logging in with your username or via Battlenet after linking your account:

      2. In order to upload the logs, you will need a client application. Download it here. 
      3. Before starting to log, you have to enable Advanced Combat Logging. Without it being enabled you wouldn't be able to see a lot of vital details like ilvl, talents, gear, artifact traits or resources that are written separately for every fight.
      Go to Game Menu (in game) > System > Network. Tick Advanced Combat Logging

      4. To enable combat logging in game, go to your chat window and type /combatlog. Now everything you and the players and enemies around you do will be written to a file called WoWCombatLog.txt. The file is sitting in WoW directory > Logs. When you want to stop logging, type /combatlog again or just exit the game.
      5. There are two ways you can choose to log. The first is to upload the entire log file after the raid is over. The second way is Live Logging. In this mode you will see the fight on the site right after it ends so can study wipes immediately to see what went wrong.
      You can enable Live Logging in WCL uploader before the raid starts:

      If you don't need Live Logging, open the WCL uploader after the raid and choose the first option 'Upload a Log'.
       
      Now, what you can search for on the WCL site?
      Pressing the button in the left upper corner will allow you to browse through all the logged raid fights, their rankings and statistics:

      Very useful option here is to search for the fights with specific filters.
      For example I want to know whether my guild would be able to kill Heroic Odyn or we'd better farm more HC EM to gear up. So I'm going to check how many guilds in Europe were able to kill Heroic Odyn in 15-man composition with 3 healers while their ilvl was not higher than 878 during the last week:
      We will go to the left upper dropdown menu and choose Odyn Rankings. This is the window we'll get:

      Now we should filter our options by clicking on the 'Search' button:

      After applying the search filter we'll get a list of raid teams that were able to kill HC Odyn in our composition:

      Here you go! There are more than enough kills, you shouldn't worry and may even check some logs for fight or comp tips.
      Another very useful feature is to check for usage of a specific gear piece, ability, talent or even enchant. For example, there was a problem with Mark of the Claw enchant not working for resto druids. It was announced recently that the bug was fixed and now it works as intended. It is an expensive enchant so I'd like to check whether it really works before changing to it.
      In WCL we can filter the usage of a specific ability, so I'll search for Resto Druids in EU region that were using Mark of the Claw enchant during the last week in the Odyn fight and check whether the enchant proc'ed for them. Type the ability name in the search window:

      Now you will receive a list of resto druids that used the Mark:

      Then you can open a specific log and check how much the enchant procs during the fight:

       
      There is another kind of search in WCL too: you can look for a specific player, guild or realm logs.
      Choosing a player will bring you to their Rankings window.
      You should note that the initial window will show you DPS rankings for the highest recorded difficulty in the most current content, no matter what's the player's role in raid (dps/healer/tank).
      So if I am a healer and want to check my healing performance in HC EM rather than Mythic EM or HC ToV, I have to apply new filters:

      You can click now on any boss and see specific logs for every fight.
      If you are searching logs for a guild, you will be redirected to their Calendar so you'd be able to choose one of the raid days. Hovering your mouse above these days will allow you to see the fights list:

      If you can't recall the guild name, searching the realm will bring you a list of all the active guilds (those using WCL) there.
