Please vote on concept, not numbers, numbers can be changed, your votes cannot.



Thank you for visiting my remake suggestion for Medusa the Gorgon's Split Shot skill. In my opinion this skill is really only useful for farming, and pushing, but not in team fights or killing Roshan, or killing somebody 1v1.


I propose to change this skill...

QUOTE

Split Shot
Medusa magically splits her shot into three arrows. These arrows deal a lower percent of her normal damage.

Level 1 - 45% damage
Level 2 - 55% damage
Level 3 - 65% damage
Level 4 - 75% damage

Passive



Into this skill...

QUOTE

Split Shot
Medusa magically clones every arrow she fires. The cloned arrows deal less damage than the original arrow, and the original is slightly weakened as well.

Level 1 - 35% damage cloned arrows, 22% damage original arrow
Level 2 - 45% damage cloned arrows, 45% damage original arrow
Level 3 - 55% damage cloned arrows, 67% damage original arrow
Level 4 - 65% damage cloned arrows, 90% damage original arrow

Passive


Now, what the difference between these skills is, is that instead of three arrows dealing 3/4 of your damage, you have two arrows dealing much less damage, but the arrow to your attack target deals more.


An example of this, is that if you are attacking three enemy melee creeps, all at full health, with 100 damage per shot, the creep you right click on will take 90 damage, and the other will take 65 damage.

Now overall this is a nerf to her split shotting damage, a small nerf, but still a nerf, in the above scenario, each attack (of three arrows) deals 220 damage, while the old split shot deals 225 in the same attack, however this makes the skill more useful for two things.

A. Dealing some AOE damage to weaken multiple enemy heroes, but still dealing significant damage to the one you are trying to kill.

B. Killing an enemy hero, while clearing creeps for ultimates such as Omnislash, Eclipse, and Chain Frost.



Thank you for visiting my suggestion, please vote, again on concept not numbers.

thats exactly what i suggested before. lol. but i think still it is a bad skill. i really hate this skill now since it does not stack with tons of effects. from what i know:
- if your maelstrom/MJ triggers, that attack will not split.
- if your MKB triggers, that attack will not split.

this is pretty shitty as MJ is a good item for her. MKB is cool too. this skill makes player choosing between MJ/MKB and the skill...

i wonder crit and maim will affect it...

it need some better coding imo.

I am almost 100% sure that maim will act just like mael/mjollnir, but the worst part about this skill is it means she cannot get any attack animation changing items, such as deso or skadi, because then she will not split, but can still deal the 75% damage. Thanks for your comments, and sorry if i stole your suggestion, i just thought of it in a game

I posted a very similar suggestion some time ago; it's going fine but needs more votes to get potentialed. In my suggestion the overall damage is a bit nerfed, but the main arrow deals full damage, making possible to actually focus a hero, making Split Shot something more than a lategame farming tool (after playing Medusa a lot of times, I realized that lategame Stats are better than Split Shot, because to farm there are already Chain Lightning and Maelstrom). This way it could even become a passive skill, removing the need to reactivate it every damn time Medusa gets silenced.

Check out my suggestion!  laugh.gif

For this skill, all we can do is vote on numbers....

Kidding, I see your point, you want to prioritise the target you are attacking.I see nothing wrong with that.I actually kinda like the suggestion  tup.gif

I think this is cool, but you need to reduce the main arrow a lot...because everyone whants 3 shots and just with 10% damage less with the main...IMBA...i love previous better.

T-down.

If you want to focus a target you turn split arrows off, not hard.

I'm of the same mind. T-D.

If you want to buff Split Shot I'd rather there you just give it a minor buff while Split Shot is off.

Thread starter: At this point, your suggestion has either received less than 60% positive votes or will not be able to reach that ratio at a total of 15 votes. Seeing as how this rating is a reflection of the community's opinion regarding the viability of your suggestion, I'm afraid this particular proposal isn't quite ready for DotA yet. If you belive this idea is worth a second chance, I advise you to rethink it as a whole. Reposting it without fundamental modifications would serve little if any purpose - it will just be as badly received by the community as this one has. Anyhow, good luck with your future suggestions!
