Heroes of the Storm

Proposed changes to Nova

HeroesoftheStorm 7 - Proposed changes to Nova

Some of this is a bit radical, but the biggest changes I've made are:

  1. Nova no longer passively gains stealth. She must activate it via her trait which functions like Tassadar's dimensional shift but costs mana per second it is active.

  2. Snipe no longer has a stacking quest by default.

  3. Nova has a new heroic which should be feasible for a dev to make without needing new VFX, and triple tap has been moved to level 20 as an active ability.

Without further ado, here are my proposed changes to my favourite Ghost! 🙂

*Attack Speed 1 *Attack Range 6.5 *Attack Damage 105 112

Snipe (Q): 50 Mana Cooldown 6 8 seconds *Range 10.8725 12.5 (amounts to a 15% increase)

Deal 230 280 (+4% per level) damage to the first enemy hit.

Passive: Hitting an enemy Hero with Snipe permanently increases the damage of Snipe by 6%, stacking up to 30%. Gain an additional 25% damage bonus at maximum stacks. All stacks are lost if Snipe fails to hit an enemy.

Pinning Shot (W) Mana: 65 50 Cooldown: 12 seconds

Deal 100 (+4% per level) damage to an enemy and Slow them by 40% for 2.25 seconds.

Nova's next basic attack deals 25% damage in an area around the target and slows all enemies hit by 50% for 1.5 seconds.

Holo Decoy (E)– unchanged

Triple Tap 100 Mana Cooldown: 100 seconds Moved to level 20 as a 100 CD Active ability Locks in on the target Hero, then fires 3 shots that hit the first Hero or Structure they come in contact with for 372 damage (+4% per level) each.

New Heroic Farsight Hunter: Mana: 40 Cooldown: 30 seconds Activate to make Nova's next snipe have double the range and pierce all enemies hit.

New Trait Ghost Protocol (D): Mana 50 per second Cooldown: 3-12 seconds

Passive: Gain 40% movement speed while Ghosted.

~~Permanent Cloak (D) ~~

Gain Stealth when out of combat for 3 seconds. Taking damage, attacking, using Abilities, or Channeling ends Stealth. Remaining stationary for at least 1.5 seconds while Stealthed grants Invisible.
