More Darkness Towers!

darkness

With the new element selection feature, it is time for Darkness to catch up with the other elements! We need new Darkness towers for the following rarities:
2x common
1x uncommon
3x rare
1x unique

I know there are already a lot of great tower card ideas in the forum. If you think that your idea would fit in that darkness tier, please add a comment to this post, with a link to your forum post.

In one week I will collect all submissions and start a poll with ALL ideas submitted, so we can vote!

New ideas are welcome as well!

Let’s get doomed!

    This isnt really a suggestion so much as a tweak for miss jilly and knupheraxe or whatever. In you td any mass related abilities worked on mass challenge so please give them that buff !! I have thought of more stuff while playing but can’t remember right now. Maybe allow us to merge unique towers into a unique item or potion? Other than that I hope the game gets more stable its crashed my phone a few times and drains battery very quickly. Thank you fot making it I love it! Lets get more interestibg items in!

    Black Priest

    Uncommon
    damage:30-40
    range: global
    attack speed:n/a
    male

    Abilities:
    Resolve- just as a creep is about to die it is place under a curse causing it to explode dealing damage (the black priest’s damage). Creeps passing through the corpse gets its armor reduced by 7% and takes 4% additional damage. Each corpse last for 7seconds after it dies. Armor and dmg amplification stacks as to how many corpse it passes through and the debuff last for 5seconds. Passing through a corpse refreshes the debuff.

      i like this idea alot, but there are some things I would modify for balancing purposes:
      like instead of just cursing every creep that’s about to dies (would be some programming to make it if mobs are at x% enable tower y attack creeps) would it be an AUTO kill causing the explosion to happen and dealing the towers damage to an area ? if so all kb’s once the tower is placed would belong to said tower. So a balancing way would be have it’s curse go off his attack starting at a base attack of 5 seconds (global atk long CD) and causing the Creep to take the priests initial hit and if the creep dies then it explodes.

    Ghost Orb

    Yellow card
    Damage: 10-20
    range: 3
    attck speed: 2

    Abilities:
    Orb attack- every 10sec it generates a lesser orb, sending it out along with its attack dealing 40% (+1% per tower level) of the Ghost orb’s damage. Each additional 100% attack speed reduces its cooldown by 1sec (with the lowest at 3sec)
    Torment- there is a 5% that it generate 2 lesser orbs.

    Black Priest

    Uncommon
    damage:15-25
    range: global
    attack speed:3
    male

    Abilities:
    Resolve- when attacking a creep it places a curse. If it dies within 4 sec the curse causes it to explode 1.5sec after it dies dealing the 50%(+.5% per tower level) of the priest’s damage (10% crit chance +0.1% per tower level). Creeps passing through the corpse gets its armor reduced by 7% and takes 4% additional damage. Each corpse last for 7seconds after it dies. Armor and dmg amplification stacks as to how many corpse it passes through and the debuff last for 5seconds. Passing through a corpse refreshes the debuff. *the skill’s Crit chance is not affected by luck and items nor of the tower’s crit chance. But affected by crit damage.

    ***I’ve reworked it. The first version has no attack speed and has higher damage. What i was thinking was it is continously applying the curse until the creep dies and the priest’s damage was only applied when the creep dies and explodes. Then there would be no way for it to gain experience and level up making it a stagnant tile. I think this is a more balance version. Thanks syotos!

      the revision looks much more balanced! gj!! But like the Hitman who has Highest Range at 6, which may not be global but really close with a 1-76 base damage (not highest ‘average’ base damage but highest possible dmg) has a speed of 5, Having a Global attack range with 15-25 dmg and 3 speed combined with the towers skill could become very Very potent (and a little imba) specially when you get to the point of able to just spam Waves. I would Either recommend (for balance purposes) Lowering Range to 3-5 and reducing base damage (think of the Black widow has 2 range, 1.2 speed , and 15-27 damage as a purple), l Or , decreasing the speed to 4 (or higher).

        @syotos: thanks again. Really forgot about the range. What i have in mind is lowering the damage to maybe 11-11 and keeping the range to a 5. The speed which i think in this setting is fair enough at 3sec.

    Playful Spirit
    What I have in mind is that this tower takes control of an existing tower (what i refer below as host. This is kinda like a parasite) and cannot be built on an empty tile on its own. So when you click on an existing tower, instead of replacing it, this tower takes control of it.
    Unique
    damage:n/a
    Range: adds 1 range if the host’s range is 3 and below
    Attack speed:n/a

    Abilities:
    Possession: the Playful Spirit enters a host and takes control of it. Gaining the ff:
    100% attack speed
    50%attack dmg (+1% per tower level)
    80% crit damage (+2% per tower level)
    10%crit chance (+0.5% per tower level)
    20%luck (+0.1% per tower level)
    2% chance to go into a state of playful insanity gaining maximum attack speed for 5 attacks only (+1 attack for every 15 levels)

    Resistance: at the start of each round there is 10% chance the host resist and breaks the Playful Spirits control losing the above attributes for 10sec. After the duration it tries to take control of its host again unabling it to move for 2sec.

    Genetics Lab – Blue. Grants 10% increase in experience in 2 range. If round cleared by single tower in range, that tower +5% experience. Stacks 4 times, but lost if ANY creep escapes or is killed by another tower.

    Potion Master – Yellow. A “dark” scientist, tower gets bolstered stats but similar to regular scientist. 1% chance every kill made by ANY type of scientist to create Mutation Potion. Mutation Potion can only be taken by Dark towers, giving perm 5% increase to luck and experience. No transmutation to higher level.

    Mutated Scientist – Unique. A “dark” scientist, doubles chance for Mutation Potion (if Potion Master exists). Also, 1% chance creep is devolved to a creep 20 levels lower. If 1% chance hits again, there is a 10% chance to stack. +.02% per level/+.2% per level, respectively.

    Cannibal
    unique
    It is a tower that consumes other towers. It has no abilities on its own, but it instead gains the abilities of the tower it consumes. It works like potions, but you pay the cost of the tower to be consumed. It can consume two towers and one more every 12 levels. It cannot consume unique towers.
    cost: 6200- might need to be adjusted

    We really need three things. AoE, air specialty, and maybe not wizard life gain but a shield per round effect based on the level of a tower for a secondary effect. The shield could divide experience of the creeps that pass through to the sheild bearer. And obviously would not be that strong initially, but can scale. A damage property should be the way to go about this because of bosses and challenges, rather and a number of creeps. Damage could be placed on the tile before the goal to avoid complications.

    Range 1

    Every 15 levels it’s range increases by 1

    Every time full of souls all stats boosted by 10% perm.
    Capacity starts at 10..so 10 kills it’s full..then increases capacity by 50%. So 10..15..22.5…33…50…75…130..etc.

    I like the Cerberus idea…. Wolfpack still is useless to me. Maybe this would make it playable. The game needs to be balanced away from the dominance of Shadow to go from really good to great.

      In addition to the Dark Pillar, towers caught in the blast radius could like suffer a debuff that decreases their attack speed by 20% and damage by 10% and a 20% miss chance for 20sec. It is a dark tower after all. 🙂

    what I do not like about the novice wizard, is that it is useless at low levels and is very good when it is at a high level.
    With a common card and a Novice in the Name it should be the other way round.
