Project WoW: Improvements and Ideas

Class Abilities


"The Two-Hour" - For when situations get totally f***ed. Derived from the Final Fantasy XI Online game, modified and played with to fit each talent spec for each class.

Blood Death Knight - "Blood Weapon" - The Blood Knight has their Rune Weapon come alive in a thirst for blood, and savagely increases the Blood Knight's attack power (150%). The Blood Knight, sharing a bond with the Rune Weapon specifically at this time, gains health equivalent to the damage dealt. This buff lasts for 20 Melee Swings of 1 Minute, whichever comes first - it cannot be spellstolen or dispelled.
Frost Death Knight - "Shardfall" - A massive shard of ice spears the target from above, causing 1000% of top end weapon damage as frost damage to the target. The attack also freezes the target in place for seven seconds, as well as stuning them for four. This attack is not subject to damage reduction and automatically hits. Can stun bosses.
Unholy Death Knight - "Dark Harvest" - The Unholy Knight's weapon transforms into a Rune Scythe for 30 seconds, causing weapon damage increased by 300% during the duration, as well as +10% Critical Strike chance. The Rune Scythe has a 3.00 weapon speed and is not subject to Haste effects, however the abilities remain affected. The Dark Harvest ability becomes the ability "Reaper" during the two-hour's duration: "Reaper" costs 40 Runic Power, has a four second cooldown and has "This attack deals 125% weapon damage + 12% additional as Shadow damage per disease on the target. When a target is struck successfully with Reaper, all of the Death Knight's runes reset." This ability cannot be spellstolen or dispelled.

All targets hit by the attack are considered frozen. targets frozen by Sub-Zero can not use abilities or trinkets that break crowd-control effects. If damage dealt to a frozen target exceeds 10% of their maximum health, or thirty seconds have past (whichever first), the crowd control effect breaks. When the targets break free, they take an additional 100% damage dealt of the sum of damage received when entombed. Cannot be cleansed.
Fire Mage - "Kamikaze" - This attack deals fire damage to all targets within 30 yards of the caster, including the mage himself. The amount of base damage is equivalent to 100% of the mage's Max HP.

All fire damage dealt are subject to crit and "Ignite"

Haste rating will increase the number of ticks the spell inflicts, but the duration and cast time remains 10 Seconds - While the spell is channeled it can not be interrupted nor can the Shaman die - all lethal damage will reduce the Shaman's HP to 1. The Shaman takes minor damage at the end of the spell too treat lethal damage dealt.
