New Ideas (in General)

Because i have too much time on my hands atm, i thought i'd make another ideas thread :)

Deathstalker's Medallion: Type amulet
will have the same PR and NW as the AoJ. Non upgradeable
Primary effect: Allows the minion wearing the amulet to use single target spells and weapons against the current lowest HP minion in the opposing party. Ignores invisibility.
Does not override the targeting systems of the following: Axbow, Exbow, MSK, Chakram.

(Optional addition)
Secondary effect: Increases damage dealt by the minion by 10% and increases damage dealt to the minion by 20%.

The implementation of the primary effect shouldn't be too hard. An adaptation of the Axbow/Exbow targeting systems should suffice. The Secondary effect may be somewhat more difficult, i'm not certain. Thats partly why its an optional effect as far as i'm concerned.

so put that amulet on a single minion archer.. and you'll increase your damage with atleast 10%? ._.

and be unable to use the AoM as well as taking an additional 20% damage.

i actually think this is a good idea simply because i don't really like it....let me explain

gets rid of decay enchanters before they can cast
takes out AoI/BoF enchantors (negating the leadership bonus) quickly
allows for CoC condensation
allows SG/Decay to be saved for higher HP minions
forces PL minions to absorb damage from low AC minions

leaves more dangerous minions alive longer giving more time for them to do damage

More damge :)

More damage :(

The secondary ability actually seems conterproductive ie do more damage to minions with low HP while taking more damage from the high HP minions who, generally speaking, already do more damage.

In a nutshell I would not use this but it does have some specific uses, maybe with a secondary weapon or, as Q pointed out, on a single ELB archer for the damage increase

I see no way for this to upset balance in any way yet still offers new choices, which are always a good thing

I kinda like it, it has its perks and its downfallls.

TH3 C0113CT0R July 7 2012 8:58 PM EDT

...I'll keep my strat idea for this item secret until/if it becomes real, already have a great idea for it!

Let me guess front end damage ...... That's why I don't like it. To obvious.

TH3 C0113CT0R July 7 2012 11:33 PM EDT

front end damage?

Haloki July 7 2012 11:37 PM EDT

Damage done early ...... Really?

TH3 C0113CT0R July 7 2012 11:55 PM EDT

PL/Wall Minion (Super High AC) and a Berserker BL/VA Minion with TSA,TGs,HoD,CMLs a VB for Max Damage Output and for Flavor Change up an Archer with Full Gear and a /AMFMage with Full Gear.....Love a 4 Minion Team :-)

This would work well with an Elven Stiletto. And having a CoC mage.
