[W] Graft

Sprout attaches itself to target tree, becoming un-targetable by enemies but can still be damaged as normal by other effects. Enemies can see which tree Sprout is in if they have vision of the tree, attacks from Sprout do not reveal itself. While in the tree, Sprout can attack enemies in range and use it's spells like normal and also receives an attack speed boost while in the tree. Moving will take Sprout out of the tree, the ability goes on cool down when used, meaning Sprout can move from tree to tree as long as the next target tree is in range. If the tree Sprout is grafted too is destroyed by any means, Sprout is left in it's place and mini stunned for a short duration.

Range: 150
Attack Speed Boost: 110%/140$/170%/200%

[E] Seedling

Sprout implants a seed into target unit, ally or enemy, can also target himself, cannot target ancients. The seed gives the target a status effect, positively effecting allies and negatively effecting enemies. The buff provides a flat amount of health regen and a movement speed increase while the target ally is in close range to trees. The de-buff deals damage over time and slows the target enemy if they stay within range of trees. Can be cast on self for double the effect.

Damage Type: Magic
Spell Immune: No
Cast Range: 350

How will Valve keep up with all these ideas?

A thought: Maybe make Bile a toggle ability, like Winter Wyvern's Arctic Burn after it's Aghs upgrade.

Initially I wanted Bile to be a passive, but maybe a toggle mode would work better.

No idea if valve takes ideas from this forum into consideration, but I'd love it if one of my ideas was looked at by a developer.

I just really like playing with ideas, would love to test them somehow someday.
