New Nova Talent Idea

Level 20 talent idea for Nova:

 

Wormholes are Awesome!

Nova can change places with her Holo Decoy within 4 seconds after casting the ability. She gains stealth 0.5

seconds after changing places with it.

To be honest i wish they would just do a total rework on nova, in Starcraft co-op and her own adventure she can transform from stealth long-range to a CQB shotgun unit which would be interesting too see in heroes and give her more viability.

And make her less frustrating to fight.

I actually find her pretty chilled out to fight against, honestly - as soon as you catch her out of stealth, you just have to make sure you don't get kited and she'll die eventually.

Fighting Nova as she is right now is pretty easy, at least if you have some experience at stealth detection.

Her burst damage is pretty weak compared with other stealth heroes such as Zeratul, and her DPS also falls behind in comparison with many heroes (among stealth heroes, Samuro and Zeratul are by far the brightest examples). Biggest source of damage comes from a skillshot relatively easy to block or dodge, has pretty low means to survive after losing stealth and nowadays both ultimates are fairly easy to avoid (one by cooperating or picking heroes with inmunity or tracer, and the other by picking things with mobility). More often than not Nova's only real way to impact the board is by harassing, and with little means to escape chasers, that's not an easy task.

I'd be happy if they reworked her in order to gain some utility. Don't know, might add the shotgun, or give it PEM projectiles against shields and/or other interesting talents, and maybe give the lethal holo-decoil for free, it's not like it deals that much damage anyways.

Wouldn't this essentially be Illusion MasterIllusion Master v 2.0?

Nova right now is an executor. You stay hidden and pew pew occasionally, and wait for the right opportunity to Triple Tap / Precision Strike. I don't think Nova is a bad hero per se, but indeed she could get a minor rework. I don't like stealth Heroes, so I don't want her to be reworked so soon, lol.

Well, HotS team said they were working on a way to rework stealth anyways.

What they'll do with it it's another thing (so far my money goes on each hero can only go stealth for a while, but starts being undetectable and adds some other advantage that changes depending of the hero). They had'nt said a thing, and so we have literally zero idea when will that happen and what will happen.
