phodom - flame barrier
fradz-double wave
galeoth-piercing shard

Why? It's pretty good in my opinion. Perphaps not the best one, but it is useful.

you see i can combine heaven's bless with forgotten amulet,power heal with tzitorin/dragon buster & about shield of fire, i already mentioned. idk why would anyone will go for this..?
& generally mobs don't use magic damage..so the magic resistance is kinda useless as compared other 3 spells

Instantly heals a targeted friendly unit and gives it 50% Magic Resistance for 10 seconds.

Now better?

Still has 10 second cooldown.

Imho better remove it..this ability has no unique effect. & other 3 abilities are enough. & those who din't knew about heal + items which I mentioned, will definitely try those 1st. Will not bother with this skill.

If you have a better idea I'm willing to change the ability.

i am not sure, but may be this will work
Increases the target's health & mana regen for 10 seconds.(at last level of spell the health & mana regen is doubled) suggesting this ability because i have not seen any mana replenishing spells

I don't see that the regens instead of magic resistance is a better way. It's about the same, basic stats, isn't it?

Basically, his logic (which I can agree too) is that more magic resistance for only 10 seconds isn't good at all.

I also have to say that magic resistance is one of the stats that you have to hope that is working since you can't see its effect clearly(i'm not saying that it's useless).

By the way, sorry, I misread the skill name (and missed a lot of others stuff also ::)). I wonder what I had eaten before reading this topic :P.

Yes its about same basic stats, but these stats are more usefull then magic resistance. I mean only bosses uses magic damage & in case health and mana regens, they can be used in conditions like against a large number of mobs, or against a boss whos spells doesn't inflict direct magic damage(summoning spells, silence e.t.c) & the improvement of spell over levels is also better as at last level the spell doubles regens. But in case of current flame barrier it just increases heal amount, which we can get from lots of other heal spells. :)

I get it. In that case maybe just thinking something not simply stats based healing ability for Phodom?

Name: Battle roar
Type: active ability.
Cd: 28sec
Cost: 10% of current hp
-----*-*-**---------
Hero lets a mighty roar, after 3.5 seconds, he is cleansed of debuffs and restores hp and mana equal to 50%(25% for mana) of damage he took. (in those 3.5 sec.).
If you remove more than 1 debuff, allies (in 600 aoe) are healed for half the amount.


If timed correctly it can be a nice dmg reducer vs certain spells nukes unlike raw magic resist. And it also has a way to replenish mana. Numbers can be tweaked.

So that is the most useless ability? Strange, I don't remember such an ability.

No. That's my idea for remaking the ability which you discussed.
