I think that she could shoot the the first three arrows and then shoot the last two arrows. It makes sense.

Perhaps everyone's right that pounce is going to be hard to code, so I'm deciding to put it here.

Damage=strength+level+2
Damage to self = 1/4(rounded up) level+1
Is that alright with everyone?

This is new attacks for teammates. Which teammate would use this?
We could continue to discuss it in the enemy ideas thread, or you could ask Craig about its viability.

For arrow storm, can all those who voted, vote again, as the area of the attack has been re-suggested many a time. Myself, I would support an attack of about 5 tiles, but it has to be animated in a plausible fashion, and then, how can you explain Rahel being so fast (the Gift?), etc!


Ert: I believe the double Slash has been suggested before (the praying mantis), but I think it was ultimately rejected for Griffin, with people instead wanting him to have Whirlwind.


Shadowling Shadow: I think it's too close to Solid State Shield and the extra teammates brought on by Gelf (if that makes it in)- thus that might not be ideal, but a moving decoy is an interesting idea nevertheless.

What if arrow storm is 1 square closer to Rahel and it hits 6 squares instead?
OXXXO
OXXXO
OOOOO
OOROO
R - Rahel

The animation is like split shot 2 (shooting 3 arrows) repeated twice at different ranges.
The explanation is more or less the same as split shot 1 and 2, but after gaining some experience and with some training she can do it faster. I still prefer the x shape, though, even if the explanation is not that good.


Oh, that right! The praying mantis did the left and right slash.
However, I also suggested double slash: Griffin hits his right front side twice.
OXX
OGX
OOO
G - Griffin, facing North


Shadowling shadow: nay. Sorry.


Perhaps I missed the point, but why would pounce be interesting to have when we already have Mega Stab (that doesn't do self damage)?

Methinks that we already agreed to a "shove" type attack for a Spriggat- should we really have a duplicate to negate such a unique feature?

Ah, my apologies, I misread "shove" and "move".
Such an attack was proposed on older formus, but for some reason didn't go through. Personally,I like the idea and supported it back then- "a ranged" attack, so to speak. But maybe also ensure that after attack, he jumps back to the tile he previously occupied, otherwise we'll have a pretty pointless combination, since the same can be done with Leap and Stab.

A=Aarman
E=enemy (if alive0

aarman moves back when it's his turn to move, until then he can be hit where he stands
Is that more to your liking, I really want this to pull through, it just seems so cool.

It's "Arman", by the way ;)

Let's also not forget the controversial "arrow rain" idea- see what people think, and what area of attack people should settle on!

Why not:

XXX
XOX
OOO
ORO

This way, split shot and split shot 2 combine to give a pretty unique and useful area (e.g. for row enemy formations, lining up against an obstacle, etc)

KZ, do you really think Rahel needs another attack?
