Nova rework concept

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Nova is one of the heroes that needs a true rework the most.
She always been in a bad place, and after the stealth change she doesnt really have alot to offer vs other ranged dps heroes.

[D] PERMANENT CLOAK

added functionality- active to gain ubreakable stealth for 1 sec, 30 sec cd.


ghost protocol have need less cd, but with shorter cd (and all the other changes) the decoy has to go.

[Q] SNIPE

increase damage to 280. quest removed
now reduce cd by 2 sec if you hit a hero.


the quest was only promoting "afking" and punished players for no reason (if the target dies before Q)

[W] FLASH BANG

new! throw a grande that explode upon impact, dealing 100 damage in a medium aoe, and reduce targets vision for 1 sec.

12 sec cd, 65 mana.


point and click slow didnt braught much and made hitting with snipe too easy, reducing sight will work better with decoy.

[E] DECOY

no change


[1] DOMINATE

new!- Hero Takedowns grant 10 stacks of Bribe. Use 20 stacks to bribe a Mercenary, instantly defeating them. Does not work on Bosses. Maximum of 80 stacks. If a camp is defeated entirely with Bribe, the camp respawns 50% faster.


she needs a way to have pve in order to be competitive, so instead of having wave-clear she needs to kill in order to get it.

[R1]TRIPLE TAP

changed! reduce damage to 125 per shot, added functionality- each successful hit on the target increase the damage of the next shot by 125 (up to- 125, 250, 375 damage=total of 750 damage)

reduce cd to 40, mana to 70.


shorter cd will make it less of a waste heroic when it doesn't work (walls, bb), but the damage has to be reduced in order for it not to be just dps tool.

[R2]PRECISION STRIKE

no change


Tldr
Q remove the base quest, now reduce cd for hitting heroes.
W replaced with flashbang- reduce enemies vision

Plasma -aa and snipe deal additional damage equal to 3% of targets max health over 3 sec.
Sniper -increase range bonus after sniping to 2, and snipe Penetrates the first target.
Thanks for your efforts however, I think what Nova only needs is taking AoE damage talent of Snipe baseline!
Well, I don't think that's what Nova should be. There are some good ideas, but I can't really agree with most of it.
