Have you been wondering, with the new Heroes and reworks, each of the Ability or talents functionality have become more complex, to the point its like reading an essay?
So I created a simple script that simply counts all the word (split by space) in the game and sort in descending order.
Numbers in the tooltip will be removed and does not count towards the word count.
1st: Samuro – Mirror Image (86 Words)
(Oh this ability used to be pretty simple: Press Q, remove negative effect, make two copies with each having 50% less HP. Then, they reworked samuro and making his Q "targetable", Clones AA extend duration, Clones uses same max HP to prevent info panel cheese, so the tooltip keeps getting larger…)
Teleport a short distance in the direction of the mouse cursor, creating X Mirror Images for X seconds with X% of Samuro's current Health that Basic Attack enemies for X damage. Images have their duration increased by X second each time they or Samuro use a Basic Attack against an enemy Hero. Whenever an Image takes damage, it deals that amount of damage to itself, effectively doubling the damage it takes. Maximum X Mirror Images can be active at at time. Using Mirror Image removes most negative effects from Samuro.
2nd: Kel'Thuzad – Master Of The Dark Arts (85 Words)
Note: This was the original trait for KTZ, featuring in the "Resurrecting Kel'Thuzad" videos from Heroes Official Youtube Channel.
Quest: Hit 30 Heroes with Death and Decay. Reward: Any time Death and Decay damages a Rooted hero, Kel'Thuzad can cast a free Death and Decay with no cast time for 3 seconds. Quest: Root 10 Heroes with Frost Nova. Reward: Frost Nova cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds. Frost Nova permanently gains 10 center damage each time it roots a Hero. Quest: Chain Heroes for a total of 40 seconds with Chains. Reward: Chains now pulls chained Heroes together on impact. Quest: Finish all quests. Reward: Gain The Scourging.
For those who wonder what "The Scourging" is, the functionality does not exist, but the tooltip might hint what is it:
Abil/KelThuzadTheScourgingButtonVitalCostOverride=2% per second
Abil/Name/KelThuzadTheScourgingCancel=The Scourging (Cancel)
Button/Name/KelThuzadTheScourgingCancel=Cancel The Scourging
Button/SimpleDisplayText/KelThuzadTheScourging=Inflict rampant death upon a large area
Button/SimpleDisplayText/KelThuzadTheScourgingCancel=Cancels The Scourging
KelThuzadTheScourgingActivity=Plaguing the lands...
(My guess would be something like constantly deal damage in a large area and draining 2% of your mana every second, kinda like a bigger Death and Decay but its an AoE cast)
3rd Alarak – Deadly Charge – Level 20 (78 Words)
(The thing is Alarak's lv20 ult will replace his trait button. So In order to keep the Sadism part of the tooltip, they actually combined the two together and create a new tooltip, hence the pretty long tooltip)
After channeling, Alarak charges forward dealing X damage to all enemies in his path. Distance is increased based on the amount of time channeled, up to X seconds. Issuing a Move order while this is channeling will cancel it at no cost. Taking damage will interrupt the channeling. Sadism Alarak's Ability damage and self-healing are increased by X% against enemy Heroes. Takedowns increase Sadism by X% , up to X% . Sadism gained from Takedowns is lost on death.
4th Ana – Shrike (77 Words)
Basic Attacks apply a Dose to enemies, dealing X damage over 5 seconds, plus additional damage equal to the current number of stacks on the target, stacking up to X times. Every X seconds, Ana is healed for X% of the damage dealt by Shrike. Aim Down Sights Activating Shrike reduces your Movement Speed by X%, but increases the Range of Healing Dart and Sleep Dart by x% while also allowing them to pierce one Hero. Lasts until canceled.
5th Abathur – Evolve Monstrosity (77 Words)
Turn an allied Minion or Locust into a Monstrosity. When enemy Minions near the Monstrosity die, it gains X% Health and X% Basic Attack damage, stacking up to X times. The Monstrosity can be healed by Carapace and has the ability to Burrow to a visible location every X seconds. Using Symbiote on the Monstrosity allows Abathur to control it, in addition to Symbiote's normal benefits. This Ability can be reactivated to automatically cast Symbiote on his Monstrosity.
6th Zuljin- Cancel Berserker (75 Words)
(Yes, Active and Cancel Berserker have different tooltip, for curious, Active Berserker has 66 Words)
Activate to leave the berserker frenzy, reducing Zul'jin's Basic Attack damage by X% and no longer consuming X% of his maximum Health per attack. Passive: Zul'jin attacks X% faster for every X% of maximum Health missing. You Want Axe? Quest: Every X Basic Attacks against Heroes permanently increases Basic Attack damage by X. Reward: After attacking Heroes X times, Basic Attack range is increased by X. Reward: After attacking Heroes X times, Twin Cleave now revolves twice.
7th Zagara – Nydus Network (72 Words)
Summon a Nydus Worm on Creep anywhere that Zagara has vision. Zagara can enter a Nydus Worm and travel to any other Nydus Worm by right-clicking near it. While inside a Nydus Worm, Zagara regenerates X% Health and Mana per second. Stores up to X charges. Maximum of X Nydus Worms at a time. Passive: Creep spreads X% farther. Passive: While on Creep, each Basic Attack reduces all of Zagara's cooldowns by X seconds.
8th Deathwing – Aspect of Death (71 Words)
Deathwing is fitted with X Armor Plates which grant X Armor each. Every X% Health lost causes Deathwing to lose a plate. Plates are only restored when Dragonflight is used, based on the amount of Health Deathwing has when landing. Deathwing is also a mighty Dragon Aspect who is permanently Unstoppable and deals X% additional Spell Damage to Heroes, but views his allies with contempt and ignores any of their friendly effects.
9th Abathur – Evolve Monstrosity – Tutorial – Veteran Challenges (71 Words)
This tooltip, besides the "Unavailable in Veteran Challenge" sentence, was the tooltip before his rework. The Veteran Tutorial have something to do with Abathur, which I am too lazy to look at, so they copied the original monstrosity tooltip, added "Unavailable in Veteran Challenge" and forgot to change it when they rework Abathur.
Turn an allied Minion or Locust into a Monstrosity. When enemy Minions near the Monstrosity die, it gains X% Health and X% Basic Attack damage, stacking up to X times. The Monstrosity takes X% less damage from non-Heroic enemies. Using Symbiote on the Monstrosity allows you to control it, in addition to Symbiote's normal benefits. This Ability can be reactivated to automatically cast Symbiote on your Monstrosity. Unavailable in Veteran Challenge
10th The Butcher – Fresh Meat (70 Words)
Upon dying, nearby enemy Minions drop X Fresh Meat and enemy Heroes drop X Fresh Meat. Fresh Meat can be picked up to gain X Attack Damage per Meat. The Butcher loses X Fresh Meat upon dying. Quest: Collect X Fresh Meat. Reward: Gain an additional X Attack Damage and X% increased Attack Speed. Heroes continue to drop X Fresh Meat, Minions no longer drop Fresh Meat, and Fresh Meat is no longer lost on death.
Since KTZ and the tutorial Monstrosity isn't quite in the game, I have added two extra entry below:
11th Blaze – Oil Spill (68 Words)
Vector Targeting Dispense a slick of oil that lasts for X seconds and Slows enemies that come in contact with it by X% . Oil Spills are Ignited for X seconds when hit by Flame Stream. Ignited Oil Spills no longer Slow enemies, but instead deal X damage to them every X seconds. Additionally, Blaze is healed for X Health every seconds while standing in Ignited Oil Spills. Stores up to X charges.
12th Zuljin – Active Berserker (66 Words)
Activate to increase Basic Attack damage by X% but consume X% maximum Health per attack. Passive: Zul'jin attacks X% faster for every X% of maximum Health missing. You Want Axe? Quest: Every X Basic Attacks against Heroes permanently increases Basic Attack damage by X. Reward: After attacking Heroes X times, Basic Attack range is increased by X. Reward: After attacking Heroes X times, Twin Cleave now revolves twice.
If you interest in the ranking of all tooltips, I have uploaded to pastebin with the following format sorted by descending order:
Also the script I created is a mess (actually just learn awk for this post), so you might make it more efficient (Run the command in the same directory of the extracted game files):
- Wild Zagara Idea: Nydus Network via Base Quest
- Zagara Rework Ideas: Infested Skillshot, Q Junkratization and Base Nydus Quest
