Twilight Staff

Ghost Scepter 1600
Shadow Amulet 1600
Total: 3200

Stats: +10 all stats

Active: Remove yourself and a target to another plane for up to 8 seconds, while removed both the caster and target cannot effect or be

effected by the game, they can effect each other, should either of the two die the effect will end immediately. The effect lasts for half as long if

cast on an allied hero and it grants +30 attack speed and +10 movement speed to the caster while removed.

Cooldown: 45 seconds

Imagine two heroes locked onto another plane, the map looks the same except it has a blue tint kinda

like being stuck in a large chronosphere and you can see what everyone else is doing, you can still move

and do anything you could in the primary realm except you are unable to effect anyone outside that

plane, if used on an allied hero it can be used to escape, as players cannot see or interact with

targets in the second plane, if a player in the second plane moves from a tier 1 tower to a tier 2 tower

when the effect ends they will be where they moved to and not where they where removed, if the target of

the removal is an enemy hero and the enemy hero kills the caster the effect will end immediately and the

hero will return to the primary plane and vice versa, both players have true sight in the second plane.

Changelog: Reduced removal duration to 8 seconds on enemy heroes and half on allied heroes.
:::::::::::::::While removed the item grants +30 attack speed and +10 movement speed to the caster.




Null Talisman 470
Wraith Band 485
Bracer 525
Magic Wand 500
Recipe 500
Total: 2480

+15 all stats
+9 damage

Passive: gain 15 life and mana when any visible hero casts a spell in a 1200 radius.

Active: Become immune to debuffs for 4 seconds, but all magical damage against you becomes pure damage.

Cooldown: 30 seconds

The active effect does not make you magic immune only immune to most debuffs like, stuns,silence,slows

or damage over time effects, but only if the damage over time effect is not already on the hero at the

time of activation, the hero will still take all forms of magical damage.

Changelog: While under the effect of the active all magical damage taken becomes pure damage.


Ancient Defender

A powerful tower capable of absorbing large amounts of punishment. the tower is designed as a quick post for defence. The Ancient Defender was masterfully crafted to be heavily fortified but lacks all forms of offence, the tower was imbued with magic that forcefully draws its enemies to attack it (Does not work on heroes).

Cost: 150
Health| 1000
Armor| 30
Sight| 250
Effect| Taunt

Effect: Emits a pulse of energy that forces nearby creeps to attack the Ancient Defender. Pulses in a 450 AOE (Does not work on heroes).

Notes: The Item can be bought only 1 time once per player, the tower lasts 10 minutes, it does not give detection, the item is designed to

reduce the devastation that losing a barracks can have by having something that will prevent creeps from

running rampant in your base while your occupied, it could also be used as a way of early jungling with

most heroes and could be used in other various ways as well. The taunting effect of the tower means it

will have a short lifespan if left to defend alone as it will pull creep aggro off your allied creeps.

The tower rewards 150 gold from being destroyed by enemy players.


Iron Knight

Helm of Iron Will 950
Chainmail 550
Broadsword 1200
Buckler 800
Boots of Speed 450
Gloves of Haste 500

The Iron Knights appearance is that of the combination of all its item parts except for some default Chainmail Greaves.

it seems way to powerful. and i cant imagine how it should fit in the game :D with Io who is never alone it would be a musthave in my opinion. Add a break if tp is used like for ghost scepter

Think it would be more balanced with a higher cost, say a 1k recipe or something, i think its a luxary item for supports for sure and would be more suited to solo gankers like bounty hunter or maybe pudge.

The balancing could come from adding an Ultimate Orb to the recipe to add the +10 stats to the item. Looks like a 5300 Gold item to me.

Personally, I like both items. However, for the Twilight Staff, you don't have it give +30 attack speed from the Shadow Amulet. IDK if that was intentional or not, but I figured I'd point it out. As for the active effect, I like how it takes after both the ghost scepter's and the shadow amulet's actives and merges them together. It's definitely too long, though, I think 5 or 6 seconds would be much fairer. Perhaps the cooldown could be increased as well, since it basically is a free 'get out of gank free' item unless the enemy team ganks you twice in less than 40 seconds.

As for Balance, I really like the item, though I don't understand the active portion. From what I understand, when you activate it you can't get any debuffs while it's on. If that's the case, I feel like this is a very nutty item as it would cause each team's supports to be able to cast all their spells in a fight without getting stunlocked, but it would also make each team's spells uneffective for that exact same reason. It's a good item, but I think the cooldown should be increased a bit, as it is also a free 'get out of gank' item (you can TP out with no fear of being stunned while it's on).

And finally, I love how you built both of these with items that only have one build path.

Thanks for replying, i understand how the first item would be very powerful especially to avoid ganks, i think i will make some changes and the second item still causes spells to deal full damage i think i know a way to make them both more balanced
