[Old] Contest : Create another Mid-boss... skillset!
« on: May 14, 2011, 11:56:01 PM »
 :mrgreen:

Hello! In the battles of CoP, you will see a lot of things, but you will also see a special battle and I won't elaborate too much...

To get this section popularity up a bit, I want you guys to make me a skillset for a boss!

About the boss:
-He's going to be a monster, and he will be UNABLE TO MOVE. He was around 5 tiles on each side of him (until the edge of the map). He will have 1 skill that is made by me, and the rest by you. He will be also untargetable, and only killable via other means. He will be accompagnied by minions. he also will have infinite mana and hp and average stats.

About the skillset:
-No self-healing.
-No Opness. (Instacrystal lololol)
-At least 2 of his abilities must have a least one element rattached to it, and 1 of these must be earth.

You have to (please) fill up this form for each skill :
Name:
What it does: (Mini-description)
Range:
Effect area: (0 is 1 square, 1 is 5, ect)
Inflit status: (chance %?)
Ct: (0 is insta, 20 is about 2 of everyone's turns)
Elements:
Prefered formula : (Optional)
Prefered Effect(cinematic) : (Optional)
Anything else :

You have to make 3 or 4 or 5 abilities.
I can pick all of them or separate them by person.

But he uses magic, so he is not only about that. Be creative all you want :-)

Of course. He manipulates earth. He VERY in touch with nature, and with magic. He's mostly the type of guy that will attack relentlessly the party and focus on hitting the most pannels, while not all of them. He's pottent with roots, earth magic, earth-psysical abilities, leaves, and all that.

But he uses magic, so he is not only about that. Be creative all you want :-)

(Not sure if you're still taking suggestions for this and I must admit that I've only marginally followed your patch, so I apologize in advance if these skills aren't something you're looking for or are already in the game; I only skimmed through the ability list and I noticed that was only for generics, so....)

These were thought up a bit hastily, but if you're still taking abilities, I hope that at least one of these has the potential to be useful:


Name: Fault Ripper
What it does: Destroys anyone who is foolish or unlucky enough to stand directly before the unkillable-via-damage boss through moderate-to-heavy Earth damage.
Range: 5 linear.
Effect Area: 5 linear, tri-directional.
Inflict Status: None.
CT: 0.
Element: Earth.
Preferred Formula: 31 Dmg ((PA+Y)/2*PA)
Preferred Effect: 062 Earth Slash
Anything Else: Remember to tick off Triple Bracelet for AI Behavior. As far as effects go, if you want to edit rocks into the Earth Slash effect, feel free. I just feel like since it's a mid-boss, he shouldn't get any big effects, even if he is effectively immortal. I figured it would also help if he actually had one attack based on PA, so Y can probably be relatively large depending on how much PA you're giving him.


Name: Spore Bomb
What it does: Proliferates potentially lethal spores over a small area.
Range: 4
Effect Area: 1
Inflict Status: Random Poison, Don't Act, Sleep or Undead.
CT: 2
Element: None.
Preferred Formula: 38 (100%)
Preferred Effect: The one used for Balk's opening attack in Bed Desert would be best, but I'm not sure if that's actually in the effect menu.... As such, I have no preference otherwise for suitable alternative since I'm basing this off of memory.
Anything Else: IMO, this should be able to effect his minions as well even with the completely random assignment of status since it's otherwise unavoidable.


Name: Shell Cracker
What it does: Crushes the flimsy, ethereal enchantments that are far less sturdy than the earth.
Range: 8
Effect Area: 0
Inflict Status: Cancel Protect, Shell, Reflect and Float.
CT: 1
Element: None.
Preferred Formula: 0E DMG (Y)% Hit_F(MA+X)% 100 Status Hide Status
Preferred Effect: 176 Gather Power
Anything Else: Y should probably be between 20-50, though anything above 33% should probably have less range. X should probably be big enough to the point where Faith doesn't really matter. It will heal Undead, but the next ability should take care of that.


Name: Eternal Tomb
What it does: Encases the undead in stone since immortal misery loves eternal company.
Range: 4
Effect Area: 0
Inflict Status: All or Nothing Petrify.
CT: 3
Element: None.
Preferred Formula: 40 Undead: Hit_(SP+X)% ELSE Miss
Preferred Effect: 0C3 Seal
Anything Else: X might as well be 100+ at the very least, but it's up to you really. You could also maybe make this Earth element just because since I think that might make Floating units able to dodge it regardless of what the percentage would normally be. However, it's been quite a while since I've done my tests and I don't believe that actually worked IIRC.


Name: Ground Killer
What it does: Uses affinity with the earth to locate underground water sources and supersaturate the ground, dragging enemies, and only enemies, down to a watery demise.
Range: 3
Inflict Status: Separate Don't Move, Slow and Death Sentence.
CT: 5
Effect Area: 2
Element: Water.
Preferred Formula: 1E Dmg_((MA+Y)*MA/2) #Hit(Rdm{1,X})
Preferred Effect: 080 Quicksand
Anything Else: First and foremost, I feel like this should ignore his allies. After that, I'd much rather that X be 1 and this Persevere than X just be greater than 1. If you feel like the damage, which I feel should be at least low-moderate, might be too much with the potential status effects, then feel free to use formula 5E since that will cause status to drop to an eighth of its usual hit-rate. (I wanted add a chance for Poison, but, meh, that's kinda overkill with repeated damage.)

(I know this is completely pointless to respond to, but it's bugging me for some reason.)

Eh, that's not really a democracy because no one voted on anything.

Think of "the people" in this case as advisers who merely offered to suggestions to the benevolent autocrat that is Kojojo when he asked rather than some mob of idiots who only had to two real choices from which to pick.
