I'm back from my DotA vacation and have some new ideas and stuff, but before that, I would like to talk about S&Y.
A little item that really fell on the bottom of the pit when it comes to items and for a reason called Matna Style.
Well, Manta Style can give you everything that S&Y can (except greater Maim, but then again, Greater Maim is nothing compared to Mirror Image gained by Manta Style) and overall does it better.
It's that way mainly because of the illusions gained by Manta Style and even with the nerf on illusions for range heroes, I never find myself getting S&Y instead of Manta Style and thinking 'Yeah, I actually need S&Y now because it's better in this scenario than Manta Style.'
Maybe I'm missing something and would be nice if someone points that out, but still, I think that S&Y is actually an item that doesn't have it's actual place with other items.
So, what I suggest is a slight remake of this item in order to give it it's own and proper place place with other items and here it is.
• Recipe •
(Sange - 2150 gold
(Yasha - 2150 gold
Total: 4300 gold
• Bonuses •
+15 attack speed
Greater Maim (passive;15% chance on attack to slow movement speed and attack speed by 25% for 3 seconds and not an orb effect anymore)
+8% movement speed (passive; stacks with Yasha and Manta Style MS bonuses, but not with itself)
- Lesser Maim from Sange should also stop being orb effect and should give 15% chance to slow down enemy by 15% (both MS and AS) for 3 sec.
- MS bonus from Yasha and Manta Style should be reduced to 8%.
So, all I changed is that Greater Maim is just a normal passive and not an orb effect anymore and reduced MS bonus, but made it stack with bonuses from Yasha and Manta Style.
I don't think that it's something too powerful since total MS bonus (if you have both S&Y and Y/MS) is 16%, witch isn't that much in my opinion and I never considered Greater Maim to be that great to begin with.
This will give S&Y it's proper and deserved place among other items.
Also, if you people don't like the change with MS bonus, tell me because main thing I wish to change is to turn Greater Maim from an orb effect to passive skill.
MS idea was something I came up along the way and think it's worth mentioning.
Still, if numbers need changing, tell me, but don't T-down the whole concept only because of the numbers.
Anyway, that's it, I think.
Tell me what do you think.
