There are a few rules to making a hero and they're official which is regarding to their stats.

Guidelines below
  • Every hero starts with a base health of 150 + strength*19, so if your hero has 21 strength, your starting health will be 549
  • Starting mana points equals intelligence*13, so if you're intelligence is 20, your starting mana will be 260
  • Determine your base armor + armor gained from agility. Agility armor bonus is 7 agility = 1 armor. For example Juggernaut gains 2.8 armor from his starting agility and has a base armor of 1. The base armor that's not armor from agility can be made up but please balance it!

Hero creation:
Make 1 spell or passive that pretty much defines the hero because if that spell was gone, the entire playstyle would change.

For example:









Design the heroes stat wise according to the stat rules above but spell-wise, try to make your hero interesting gentle-pplz :), if I like the hero I send you a gift ^_^

I'd argue that Necromastery is more important on Shadow Fiend.

I think that changing anything on Shadow Fiend would change the hero as a whole, he was a bad example, I think that removing Summon Spirit Bear from Lone Druid would be a better example.
