Alryca



ADDENDUM:



So this hero concept used to be Patchouli Knowledge...

I feel like I wanted to make another thread to house Alryca and Patchouli separately but there's no real difference between the two that warrants their separation. All differences are simply names.

NAMES OF STUFFS WHEN SHE WAS PATCHOULI

RECENT UPDATES :

HERO SUMMARY:



Alryca is a very complex hero that is similar to Invoker with regards to the number of spells she can use. However, unlike invoker, access to her spells are simple! E for the next spell and Q for the previous spell. The current spell will be displayed in the W slot (called Library). Easy, right!

The library houses her main spells, each representing one of the 5 Wu Xing elements. However, they are arranged by the Japanese days of the week (fire, water, wood, metal, earth). Leveling W for the first time only starts with just 2 spells (Fire and water). The kicker here is that she can learn more spells from her talent tree to add to her library! Each branch offers 2 spells, she can only pick 1. The spells have the elements of Wood at level 7, Metal at level 13, and Earth at level 19. I made her talents work like this to make a smoother early and mid game. Plus, consecutive prime numbers separated by a common interval satisfies a mathematician's heart.

Her D, when activated, grants the next spell she'll cast from her library a powerful bonus effect. The bonus depends on the spell, from simply adding more damage to giving her summon an active ability.

But that's not the thing to her complexity, each spells in her Library does things a little differently depending on the element of the last spell she cast! This fits her concept of element mixing without making more than 27 spells for the player. For example, her water spell grants regeneration if a fire spell was last cast. This is controlled by her passive F.

But the spells are only boosted by 2 other elements (3 if you count sun), which means that if her last spell is wood, which cannot boost her water spell, then no bonus effect will apply (It's water that boosts wood). The spells can only be boosted by 1 element, unless she cast the spell that I'm about to mention.

And finally, she has her ult, "The Philosopher's Stones". Remember her passive F? This is basically 5 elements in one cast, unlocking the true potential of any spells in her library. It also replenishes some mana instantly... And that's it.

In total, she have 12 spells (2 to traverse the library, 8 actual spells from the library, her active D, and her Ult) but 3 will never be used in a game... that is if she even reached level 19.
PROS :
  • High skill ceiling
  • Powerful combos
  • Can do a whole lot of things
  • Has instant mana supply
CONS :
  • Weak early game
  • Bad str and agi
  • Requires...*ahem*..."knowledge"
  • Individual spells are terrible without their boosts.
  • Terrible ultimate ( Arcane Aura is far better)

LORE:



Forever catered in the library since birth. Aevea Alryca Hexendias is a prodigy, being only self-taught among having ten millennia's worth of eruditions strewn across the world and even beyond. She had even perfected many rites that only a magus can learn. The maids find it entertaining, but she found those spells lackadaisical still. So thus with all those wisdom as her basis, The young master began conjuring multitudes of unprecedented sorceries that no tomes have ever taught before. Merging the concepts of her favorite Eastern philosophies into each of her spells, from ancient bindings, to self-tailored cantraps!

Then forthwith another serene evening at her library, perusing countless uncharted tomes of high-level sorceries that can only discombobulate anyone who dared to read but her. But unlike every other, this particular eventide had massive bloom of a powerful magic that tingled her skin. The origin of which seemed to have come from all directions, almost... otherworldly. Her grimoires reacted in various ways at the alarm of such an incident.

But this does not alarm her, she never cared in the first place.

She remained isolated, and desolate, in her gargantuan and comfortable cage that have books for bars. And when it's finally time to receive her usual tea, none came. Normally, she wouldn't mind, but if there's naught been tea nor coffee for the next 24 hours, she's bound to leave the library. The library door opened with it's usual low-pitched creaks, but what greeted her was not the usual hall nor the usual lush carpet. It wasn't even the usual landscape nor the usual soil that met her the moment she took a step outside. No, obviously she ended up in a place she'd never even consider. Perhaps unbeknownst to her, this might be a side-effect of that world-level magic she cast for fun. Or perhaps this could all be from something completely extraneous.

Whatever it is, she considered to finally took a step outside. She wanted to learn first-hand of it's gods, primordials, and mad moons.

Very interesting! Instantly smiled at explanation for 7/13/19

I had several ideas you used here (fortunately I scrapped the heroes so I won't have to sue) but the full combo seems very OP at high levels as it only costs 1100 mana (200 with ulti).

Consider super nerfing the green storm as right now alone with PS at level 11 it can do (3/2/4/1 build) 15 seconds of having 8 unkillable wisps dealing 50dps in a 200 aoe while whole enemy team is rooted, for a total of 40×140 single target damage while permarooted, not counting aoe.
My personal suggestion would be having 12/14/16/18 wisps, released at 3 per second to deal 30/35/40/45 damage to any random unit (kamikaze) in a 600 aoe. Water adds 3/4/5/6/7 more orbs, and earth improves the rate to 4/5/6/7/8 per second, while sun makes them all bounce for 12/14/16/18/20 damage.

Great hero overall, especially because of the extra spells she has. Nice work!

Glad you liked it! ^^

Thanks for pointing out Green Storm's problems. I fixed it by simply nerfing the orbs spawn interval and attack intervals. This removes the perma-root and drastically disperses the time it takes to deal its total damage. It will still prioritize heroes, but I toned down the enemy detection range by 300.

As for the OP-ness of her combos, that would be really hard to know for sure without seeing it in real game action. I mean, invoker's combos sounds very powerful on paper but icefrog deemed him balanced.

My HCC Entry, Alryca! She's taking over Patchouli Knowledge for the remainder of the contest. If I would have a dream hero that I wish to be ported to dota 2, it's definitely questionable to have someone from another franchise.

Made some major changes. Also added helpful images to visualize how she works.
