EdAWACS Hero Idea: Blomnvoss


#1

Hey, this is Ciderhelm and welcome to the Vainglory hero spotlight. Today we will be looking at Blomnvoss, a dwarf engineer who constructs defensive emplacements to zone enemies.


Literally the best image I could find of a dwarf engineer that wasn’t from World of Warcraft.

The designer of Sovereign’s Rise’s defense systems, Blomnvoss has joined the fight in order to test out new modifications for his creations personally. Angered by the lack of respect accorded to his creations. Blomnvoss is prepared to invest a considerable amount of effort to teach enemies to appreciate the hard work he does.

Sometimes death and pain are the best teachers.

In the game, Blomnvoss is a utility based engineer who excels when operating close to turrets. With good defensive potential, the dwarven inventor is can siege enemies or deter foes from closing in.


HEROIC PERK: Royal Commission

All allied turret kills against enemy heroes, minions, and monsters will generate FULL gold for Blomnvoss if he is within 7 meters of that turret.

  • Blohmvoss can spend 300 gold to repair 5% of a turret’s hit points with each basic attack.
  • If Blomvoss runs out of the required gold he cannot use this effect.

About time you (or someone) came up with a structure-based hero! I really love the concept.

Initial reaction: I’m okay with most of it. My gut was to say his ult was OP in regards to rebuilding a turret, but then again, if he’s not careful, it seems he could be vulnerable to stuns and getting ambushed while channelling? If not, he should be. I’d also make sure he can only respawn the turret closest to the crystal in the lane (due to the fact that turrets are invulnerable until the proceeding turret is destroyed).

Finally - what are your thoughts on editing/reworking an ability so he is able to “deconstruct” enemy structures, creating a true “sieger” in this game?


#3

I mean I did say it was a channeled ultimate so I felt I didn’t need to add the fact that it could be interrupted.

I didn’t really have an idea for a deconstruct ability in his kit. I, however, did have an idea for an ability to convert enemy turrets into allied turrets. For both of those abilities, I feel would make Blomnvoss too powerful. Plus he’s the inventor of the turrets, doesn’t make sense for him to deconstruct them.


#4

the only thought is how his perk work

  • Blohmvoss can spend 300 gold to repair 5% of a turret’s hit points with each basic attack.

So there is a toggle button for me to turn on if I want to tap on allied turret to fix it? Or is just an auto fix as I tap on damaged turrets? what if I’m in a middle of a battle near a damaged allied turret and I tap on the turret instead of enemy who happen to stay very near the turret?


#5

It’s an auto-fix if you tap on allied turrets. If you tapped on the turret instead you will heal the turret if you had 300 plus gold.
