[ID2] Rhyme and Reason

Post by Masterful »

Rhyme and Reason

I'm posting this here, first, to flesh out the idea and decide if if's worth proceeding with.

A Titan duo that would undoubtedly be a nightmare to play; however, played correctly Rhyme and Reason could easily become an extremely strong enemy. All their spells (save Unity) have different effects depending on what ‘mode’ they’re in. If they’re two separate units, their spells have different effects to what they would be if they were unified. When one of them dies, the other must revive them by using a Soul Stone.

Ability One: Link (Nuke)
Separate
Rhyme and Reason create a link between them, dealing damage every second to units caught in the beam. Both units can move; however, receive a 50% Movement Speed reduction.
[Level 1] Max Link distance of 20. Deals 50 DPS. Costs 30 Energy/s.
[Level 2] Max Link distance of 30. Deals 75 DPS. Costs 50 Energy/s.
[Level 3] Max Link distance of 40. Deals 100 DPS. Costs 70 Energy/s.

Unified
Rhyson links all units within a radius of 3 of a target unit together, pulling them to the target unit and dealing damage.
[Level 1] Deals 75 Damage over 2 Seconds. Link lasts for 0.5 Seconds.
[Level 2] Deals 100 Damage over 2 Seconds. Link lasts for 0.75 Seconds.
[Level 3] Deals 125 Damage over 2 Seconds. Link lasts for 1 Second.

Ability Two: Fighting Spirit (Passive)
Separate.
When Rhyme and Reason are near each other, they receive a bonus.
[Level 1] Distance of 3. +15% Weapon Damage, +10% Damage Resistance.
[Level 2] Distance of 5. +25% Weapon Damage, +20% Damage Resistance.
[Level 3] Distance of 7. +35% Weapon Damage, +30% Damage Resistance.

Unified
Rhyson amplifies the power he receives as a result of being unified, increasing his potential. Movement speed does not change.
[Level 1] +10% Lifesteal.
[Level 2] +20% Lifesteal.
[Level 3] +30% Lifesteal.

Ability Three: Unity (Utility)
Rhyme and Reason combine together for a period of time. Their vitals are combined during this time.
[Level 1] Lasts for 4 Seconds.
[Level 2] Lasts for 7 Seconds.
[Level 3] Lasts for 10 Seconds.

Ability Four: Soul Restoration (Heal)
Separate.
Rhyme and Reason channel for 2 seconds, and then gain health regeneration for 6 Seconds.
[Level 1] +50 RPS.
[Level 2] +100 RPS.
[Level 3] +150 RPS.

Unified.
Rhyson absorbs the life force that leaves him when he is damaged. Once toggled, a percentage of all Damage taken is transferred into energy. When untoggled, the energy is transferred back into life.
[Level 1] 12.5% of Life lost is transferred.
[Level 2] 18.75% of Life lost is transferred.
[Level 3] 25% of Life lost is transferred.

Ability Five: Phantoms (Ultimate)
Separate
Rhyme and Reason create Phantoms of themselves at the target location. The Phantoms deal 50% of their DPS and have 30% of their Life. They cannot attack Heroic units and last for 8 seconds.

Unified
For 8 seconds, Rhyson, Rhyme and Reason are all present on the battlefield. After the 8 seconds, Rhyson disappears.

Huh.

For a second, I thought that this would be a balance suggestion, or a 'Rhyme and Reason' towards Titan suggestions. I was very wrong. :/

The idea seems good so far. More feedback will come at a later date. I so rarely give feedback that is useful... DAMN IT! I MUST CHANGE! IT WILL BE DONE BEFORE TOMORROW.

I really really like this idea.

Here are my feed backs. The nuke when they are separate may be too strong. I would suggest lower dps.

I dislike the idea of increase damage for the passive. I would suggest increasing attack speed instead.

Rhyme and reason and only combine for a max of 10 second at a time? I feel like Unity should be a 1 leveled skill, and last for 30-60 seconds. Or a toggleable skill.

The heal is too weak. When separate, using the heal in a siege doesn't work that well. They will be taking damage for 2 seconds.

The phantom ultimate seems like voltron's ultimate.

Can I say that this screams overpowered?

I like ability 1 and 4.

I don't like Rhyson at all.

Are their stats below average of normal Titan, or the same?

Yeah, how exactly would the health and damage be changed?

Their individual stats would be half that of an individual Titan. I should just mention, when you use an ability on one of them, both of them will be effected and share a cooldown.

As far as the siegeing aspeect goes, its designed for the player to be unified when siegeing.

When you buy an item, both will receive it. When you sell or drop an item from one of them, it leaves both their inventories.
