Would an AoS version of Aghanim's Scepter work?

Recommended Posts

Aghanim's Scepter is a mid/late game item in DotA that offers generic stats and a unique that improves the ultimate of various heroes in varying ways, like purchasing a 4th level upgrade for your ult. It doesn't have to necessarily just buff the numbers of an ult but also introduce new effects. Would such an item work in AoS? Was it ever considered?

Well it could work by improving ultimates in ways that are not by scaling, like increasing/decreasing duration, improving cast-time, buffing range, adding new effects etc. More creative than just directly buffing the damage output.

Ideas for such:

 

Rory: Flaming Stevie does 25% of it's damage as Spell Damage in a 1 unit radius around the target.

Zeratul: Immune to debuffs while in the sphere.

DARPA: Jumps grant him a small smoke screen, cloaking him for 0.5 seconds on landing.

Boros: His Ultimate now deals 15% True Damage.

Shadow: Immune to debuffs while in the shade. (Read: no more scans lol)

Geneva: Target gains 10% movespeed and 600% health regen while damage immune.

Summers: Can turn on autodetonate, dealing 65% of damage if an enemy Heroic Unit walks on a mine.

Cain: Projectiles also slow the target by 2.5%, stacking up to 20 times.

Starscream: While his ultimate is active, he moves 20% faster while locked on

 

And whale. that's great :o

It's not copying if the idea is interpreted and implemented in a new way. Otherwise, you might as well stop playing now because all Mobas since DotA have copied and improved its formulas.

It should give decent stats not too much IMO. Something like +25 or +30 stats, much like Aghanim's, players should get it for its unique. Giving too much stats would make it a core item on everyone. CDR optional but not necessary.

Killed how? No stuns no silences no lockbox, what would you do? debuff immunity has shown that its stupidly powerful, just look at parallax, it makes no sense to give a hero 5 seconds AoE stun and 5 seconds debuff immunity...

I thought of an interesting and different take on this item in that it would buff the heroic passives rather than the ultimates. It would be the only means of improving your heroic passive in the game. Simply, it would be a t4 (price between 4-5k) item that gives +30-40 of each stat and have a unique that greatly improves a hero's passive.
