Also, the ult should really be called Cosmic Chains or Astral Chains because it has to do with the stars not with Alignments.
I think an idea like that (less damage for secondary and tertiary etc linked units) could bring about balance for the huge AOE of the skill right now.
rightnow, everything about the skill is stronger than leshrac's pulse nova. needs nerfing.
If Oracle uses bounds, and then star alignment, then the initial cost can be considered to be the mana cost of bounds, and then the ulti's mana cost will become 60/sec, exacly the smae as leshrac.
-So if the damage is reduced similar to leshrac's, then the balance would be awesine, - the damage output is comaprable to leshrac.
-Without bounds, it costs twice as much as leshrac's spell, justifying the large AOE.
-diminished damage for links not directly from oracle helps the balance too.
-As will having it be hero only, if that's an idea you like. (energy volley is alraedy a nice farming skill on creeps)
name: stars aligning has to do with "fate" like in astrology. keep in mind the 3rd skill is called "bounds of wisdom" so another skill shoulnd't have too similar of a name to it.
fate can be balanced with percentages from 40-70 lowered.
i just noticed the secondary (but different) effects of fate and past - DAS and Decreased attack. now it really has some versatility! im liking it a lot. since the skill has two aspects, and each are doubled, lowering numbers are is needed.
