    I thought up the ideas for the spells almost instantly when I started thinking what a thief is. I had an idea for another spell too, but couldn't fit it and it was a bit counter-intuitive. Also I once made an entire concept over 5 minutes while being interviewed by Wrooks.

    I once didn't think of a concept in 5 months while not being interviewed by Wrooks.

    Not every inspiration impulses leads into fully bloomed hero concept, not to mention your were maid with such hurry.

    Your try isnt the worst, i've seen and make worse.

    Im not trying to diminish your ideas. IMO, they might be pretty neat, but ATM they are just flover buds.


    Q and W - overall cool, but i'd say, slightly weak.
    E - simple, yet weak. Cloak and Dagger from Riki + PA's minimap icon concealment. Worst part - It couldnt be develop further without making it broken and OP.
    R - im too lazy to say in other words

    About "inspirations". @dewouter 's concept and chat with @summer-penguin led me towards one i mentioned before (and quotted), you can read whole article to see how did i come to this.

    i'll try to create hero using concept i mentioned before.
    When? Czeck Valve Time clock.

    I meant that niching a hero should come naturally, if you're drawing a concept w/ personality, w/ style.
    Niche is, in my humble opinion:
    I'd give Zastyza a solid A, in that subject.
    Because as I said, niching is easy (ez busy), if you're drawing a concept w/ personality, w/ style.
    As I think you did.

    When all your spells have the same cooldown do you also drop them in advanced statistics? :p

    Dude, its time to change template
    Customs (like one i used, basically paint + wiki style) require more time, but they can only be fuck uped by imgur (or other image hosting being down)
    It would be great to have both image hosting template tool.

    if a hero needs different spell points, i'd very much mention it. Should i start adding attack points to autocast skills as well?

    Where is your advanced statistics?
    I'm looking for the cast animation but now advanced statistics went missing.
    Where's the hero?
    The Hero went missing now I can't see the Hero.

    I'm drunk right now.. I can't say I am fully understanding you, 1FD.
    Whose cast animation?
    What hero? What?
    Wut?
    I was talking to Cookie upstairs. I too believe cast animation should not be on the advanced statistics.

    if a hero needs different cast points for every spell id put them in the spell. if not no point in repeating the same cast point over and over like a bad joke and it just goes in advanced stats along with missile speed attack point turn rate bat and vision range

    Cookie knows what's up with this one.
    But maybe everyone these days is getting so spoiled with excessive detailing of things like Liquidpedia... maaaaybe them youngnewbies don't bother putting obvious points together to get where the track is going. Maybe what is obvious isn't so obvious when they've only ever seen statistics jammed to the rim with redundancies and repetition the way much of data-spam and categorization is in common academia...
    Maybe.

    Maybe they're just lazy or maybe they're just blind.
    Maybe it's because we're all a little crazy.
    Maybe the universe is just trolling you for fun.
    Maybe we need a Hero Suggestion Outline for Comprehension Purposes Thread

    To me cast points are an incredible interesting way to balance abilities. Having them all the same makes me think you didn't consider them. Which you don't have to obviously.

    The biggest reason not to do it like this is that when you change one cast point you will be needing to add them all to your spells anyways.
