I thought about a rather good Silencer remake, one that should change his role in the team, maybe even improve it, and make him more reliable.
The main idea would be swapping his 3rd skill and ulti, making the skill into an ulti, and the ulti into a skill. Like this:
Causes any unit under the effect of this aura to become silenced after it finishes casting a spell. 900 AoE
If an enemy hero dies while in the AoE of this aura, Silencer permanently steals 1 Intelligence from him.
Level 1: 0.75 sec
Level 2: 1.5 sec
Level 3: 2.25 sec
Level 4: 3 sec
Stops all enemies on the map from casting spells.
Level 1: 3 seconds.
Level 2: 4 seconds.
Level 3: 5 seconds.
Mana Cost: 250/350/450
(Not) Global Silence
Silences all enemies around Silencer upon activation.
Level 1: 900 AoE, lasts 2 seconds
Level 2: 1200 AoE, lasts 3 seconds
Level 3: 1500 AoE, lasts 4 seconds
Level 4: 1800 AoE, lasts 5 seconds
Mana cost: 100/140/180/220
Causes any unit under the effect of this aura to become silenced after it finishes casting a spell.
If an enemy hero dies while in the AoE of this aura, Silencer permanently steals Intelligence from him.
Level 1: 1000 AoE, lasts 3 seconds, steals 1 INT
Level 2: 1250 AoE, lasts 4 seconds, steals 1,5 INT
Level 3: 1500 AoE, lasts 5 seconds, steals 2 INT
