Who doubts your capability lol?

Good luck, would love to see it in action whatever animation you choose.

The spell will be out very soon. I had everything in my mind already. The final task is designing the approriate code.

So, correct me if I got something wrong, but this is the "animation" the way I see it:

First up, Fradz spins around, only to daze himself so that he'll fumble around like a blind/drunk person, from time to time bouncing because of his unstable movement. What a boozer Fradz is to become. How tragegic.

Your perception is wrong, very wrong that is. Fradz spins because the two blades will form a sort of barrier around him and allow him to cut all enemies in the path. It doesn't relate in any way to getting drunk and spin around. You may want to continue supporting your idea, and I will be powerless to change your mind because you don't understand why I choose the spin animation instead of all animations lying around. I can firmly assure you that it is the only viable option, and any other animations will turn the spell into a total mess of ugly effects.

Feel free to point out why I am wrong if you can but please give a vivid demonstration (a similiar spell in some maps that use an animation other than spinning should do) to support your arguement.

It was a mere description of how it would work in real life... As everything can't work the same way in both worlds. Mm

How could we ever know, if you don't make any other variations? Is it really that the WE is incapable of doing it, or is it just that because you don't like it, you won't make it (even if it was to test how it would turn out)?

Furthermore, since you don't like this "power-up" idea, do you also hate i.e. the speedy boost spell that's already in the campaign, because it looks "ugly" and is basically a similar power-up spell?

It seems the only way to convince you is the actual spell. And as I already said I cannot change the color of that effect. Ask Aero if you want proof.

Yes you can. Simply don't use those lightnings effects. Use "special effects". Like with Teleport Strike, put a special effect on Fradz, not a lightning between the first and second point.

I got a new idea for Phodom's ultimate: Phodom constructs a cluster rocket and launches it towards a targeted point. The rocket will constantly release a nova of smaller homing rockets. When the main rocket reaches its destination, it explodes.
Maybe replaces the main rocket with a giant pillar of fire and the smaller rockets with homing fireballs. I'm not sure about that.
(No name yet)
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

We could create something from this idea: Create illusion of the enemy unit. Of course this is too strong but if it's like the illusion takes 10x damage.
