Im just gonna make a list of favor item ideas that come to my head and edit progressively.

ALSO, Exxcentric is willing to mod these into the game (when he has the time) so we can test them. So if anyone is interested in testing these items just post in this thread and post the items ur most interested in. Then we'd pick the most popular ones and go from there.  


1. Dejavu Essence
Passive
+400 max mana
+6 mana regen

Use
For 5 secs, the next skill you activate costs 25% less mana and recharges 50% faster.

2. Steel Skin
Passive
+300 health
+400 armour

You have a 10% chance on being hit of reflecting 75% dmg back to the source. (Does not work against skills)

3. Ice Shard
Passive
+25 attack
+ additional 25 dmg against structures.

Use
For 5 secs, nearby enemies move and attack 20% slower.

4. Searing Stone
Passive
Grants Aura of +5% attack and movement speed.
+ 15 attack

You have 10% chance on hit of causing 250 health degen over 3 secs.

5. Static Orb
Passive
+10% movement speed

Use
Stun target for .5 secs dealing 100 dmg.

6. Water of Life
Passive

For 4 seconds, dmg dealt to target ally is divided in half between the two of you. The amount of dmg you recieve from this is then reduced according to how much armor you have.
(Amount of armour is turned into a percentage. 100 armour = 1% dmg reduction. eg. If you wore Nimoths Chest Plate (grants 1500 armor), you will negate the dmg you recieve by 15%. You gain another 5% dmg reduction due to this item).

11. Bleeding Heart

You deal 25 dmg per second around you. (Ooze range)

12. Eye of Dominance
Passive

For 3 secs, fog of war disappears. Enemies recieve 15% more dmg in this time.

14. Eye of Grace

that looks very nice gkrit, maybe steel skin is a bit too powerful but others are good. I especially like static orb which can be very valuable for reg or qot that dont have a stun/interrupt.

I was thinking maybe reducing it to 5% chance and maybe 65% reflected?

I like the water of life idea, sounds just like the sort of item I would pick

I do think the static orb could be an interesting one but after doing some quick calculations I think searing stone is a bit too powerful

I like your Steel Skin idea too, though I think a small drop in the damage-reflection percentage wouldn't diminish the fact that it can be an extremely useful item. That extra +400 Health and +300 Armor would be very, very useful in the early stages of the game, and the damage-reflection would be quite useful in the later stages of the game, when enemy Demigods are starting to hit for alot more DPS. This seems like one item that can be really helpful throughout all of the game-stages. Nice idea.

Very very very good ideas. Steel Skin I agree is too strong. How about a 10% chance to negate all damage done by that attack. This would be a great tanking item which we are greatly lacking.

thanks cypher and xavior, didnt think id get such a positive response lol.

xavior - what u posted there was my original idea. I changed it to reflect dmg coz i thought it would make this item more interesting and not make u an ELITE tank, coz end game some ppl rlly do get tanked and taking em out takes ages. With the dmg being reflected im making it so that u still get the full amount of dmg but 75% of that hits ur attacker. And it may not be as OP as u think (or more OP than I think lol) end game, if someone attacks for 300 dmg there is a 1 in 10 chance of 225 dmg being reflected bak. Also take into consideration that the less dmg you take the less effective the dmg reflection will be. I could be wrong though. If you still feel strongly about it being OP then ill change it up a bit more.

Cypher - yeh it would be good if favor items served their purpose throughout the entire length of the game but not be too OP.

I like the steel skin. You could have the ability and just remove the stats maybe and it would be balanced I think.

Scales of fortune....doesn't an extra 2 gold from minions seem too little?

Got an ideea for an item too:

Bracelet of Echoes: When you hit an enemy, you will have a 20% chance to transfer that damage to any nearby enemies (range is a bit larger than sednas pounce).

yeh it does seem like a small amount but i tried to cater for fast spawn option, so that its not too OP. but i think im gonna change it now lol.

Ill put ur idea up top.

Yeah scales of fortune is a really weak one up there. That 20% xp could change the game while 1k gold isn't. Maybe take away the xp debuff and make it +8 gold a minion. This would allow maybe 4 or 5k extra per game which makes up for the disadvantage you would have for not having an overly useful favor item in the begining.

How about a health item with a 15% health increase with a +20 damage stacked on it.

i added your idea up top just modified it a bit.

I also changed scales of fortune to give +8 currency instead of 2. I kept the exp debuff coz i think in the long run if they rlly wanted to counter it ... all they need is to buy the upgrade in the citadel and keep the exp flag capped). +8 is a big benefit imo.

3. Ice Shard
Passive
+25 attack
+ additional 25 dmg against structures.

Use
For 5 secs, nearby enemies move and attack 20% slower.



5. Static Orb
Passive
+10% movement speed

Use
Stun target for .5 secs dealing 100 dmg.

-------------------------------------------------------------

IMO these 2 would be OP because they would be completely battle changing. Otherwise your other ideas would be welcomed new favor items!+1

thx.

but the reason i did them like that is becoz i wanted to make them appealing. Mards hammer has high dmg output regardless of what your attacking (+40dmg and +5% attack speed) in comparison to ice shard, and still no one uses it that much. This is why i brought in a use that can somewhat aid you in a tough situation and gave a circumstantial secondary passive (+25 to towers). 

but i guess the only way we could find out if we played with them .... unfortunately we cant

Thanks for adding my idea and accepting criticism so well.

How about an item that is purely for line of sight. Maybe something that doubles your line of sight. This would be a tactical advantage and maybe if it is too strong you could just put a slight debuff on it.

I was talking more about the slow. maxed claws only slows 10% and u are talking 20% on the ice shard

yeh, actually i might change it to just "reduce movement speed by 20%".

Also i might be interested in modding some of these into the game, i have been looking at LUA script and it does not look that difficult (maybe just change current favour items to these for testing) so let me know if you or anyone else would be interested in testing some of these out so we can recommend them to GPG/stardock

thx im glad u like them. ill put a hyperlink thingy to direct ppl to your post so others can see them (or ill just re post em up top if i cant get hyperlink to work and may  change a few slightly if thats alright with you).

Change them all you like gkrit (i mean this is your thread lol) i was just trying to come up with some favour items that allowed users to do things that the current favour items ignore, catering more for specific builds:

 

ie. For a tower rook

Architects necklace:

Passive:

+12.5% structure repair aura (size of bat swarm 1)

+12.5% structure damage aura (size of bat swarm 1)

+12.5% structure attack speed aura (size of bat swarm 1)

Activated: regen mana +20 and + 35% for 8 seconds (regen 45 seconds) if damage is taken effect is removed

On the note of modding, i am in the middle of writing my thesis atm (protein chemistry, arrg the pain!) so i will be a bit low on time till the start of next month but i will see wat i can do in terms of modding a few of the more popular ones over the current favour items.

Maybe if this thread gets enough interest we can come up with some sort of consensus as the which ones ppl like the most (maybe top 8) and i will try to get those into a mod which we can link here, ppl can download and try out themselves (play over himachi for balance testing etc)

cheers Exx
