I was just wondering for other players since this game as a player base from many different other blizzard games.
When it comes to certain characters that you play ( or not ) are there talents that the name / effect dont match what the lore or gameplay normally would be and if it would be more accurate how would you tweak it ?
Tassadar: thermal lance : it currently does 8% damage when it his its first target of shock ray. However the original thermal lance belonged to the collossus units ( a giant mechanical protoss unit that shoots lasers ). In SC2 , the thermal lance upgrade would increase the range of attack of the collossus to help them not get destroyed by everything that moves faster then them .
In other to make sense name wise ( beside the fact high templars and collossus are nothing alike , but pair amazingly well together in a comp ) i would just remove the % damage and instead increase the range of shock ray .
D.Va also has Diverting Power at level 16 which vaguely states that D.Va’s defense matrix “grows drastically in size”. Similar talents on other heroes usually are worded as “Increases (skill) radius/area by 33%” or something along the lines.
This isn’t the name, but the icon. Tychus’ Sizzlin’ Attacks and Ragnaros’ Blistering Attacks both use the generic red sword icon most AA talents have. That’s in spite of this amazing, underused icon existing and fitting those talents far more.
They even know it exists, since they used it for one of Gazlowe’s talents.
The talent that annoys me is the cross-talent names between Jaina and Kel-Thuzad. Jaina’s got Frost Armor and Kel-Thuzad’s got Armor of the Lich. Kel-Thuzad should have the name Frost Armor as that’s his iconic original lore ability! Jaina should have a similar name but can be called Frozen Armor. I mean Mei can share the same name as Blizzard, sooo…
Eh, the original talent made a lot more sense in it’s name, as it gave +10% health, and “of the Whale” is an affix that granted health to items with said affix (Not to mention the item reference, as Godly Plate of the Whale was the most powerful plate you could get, though you had to hack it in).
Was “of Regeneration” a gear affix in D2? I don’t think it was.
