Alternative abilities for Hunters and Monsters for a more diverse gameplay!

Hello fellow Hunters and Huntresses!

After many hours and wonderfull battles played, i’ve noticed that there aren’t many
possible strategies or combo’s to use for both monsters and hunters.
And in my opinion, it limits the greater potentional this game can reach.
So thats why i have been thinkering the last couple of weeks and came up with alternative abilities for
both hunters and monsters which fits their characters.

For example, most of Goliath’s abilities evolves (pun intended) around AoE and Knockback damage that has a fire based theme.
Now follow those same AoE and Knockback abilities, give them different executions and tadaaa,
you got yourself a completely new set of abilities that roughly follows the same principles of his original abilities, but are now executed completely different!

What i am trying to suggest, isn’t too add fixed sets alternatives or more abilities beside each other, i was trying to give us more abilities to combine into your own set.

Lets say, we currently have 1 set, lets call it for convenience SET A. Now what i am suggesting is that we get more abilities too choose from so we can create our own combination. So we add another pair of sets, called set A,B and C.

Now for example,
Monster player 1 wants a combination of A-A-B-C
Monster player 2 wants a combination of B-C-A-A
And Monster player 3 wants a combination of C-B-C-A

Thats what i am trying too suggest! Give us more abilities so we can create our own combination for Monsters and Hunters!

Now these abilities are by no way the best idea’s, but they are just idea’s none the less.
But now i want YOU to upload your own idea’s! So show me how creative you are in your own idea’s
for the best set of alternative abilities for your favorite Hunter/Monster!

(P.S. please don’t pick on my naming ability, i know its horrible! :tired_face:)

Allright my first section is finally up, hope you guys like it!

Instead of alternatives I thought of 1 new ability that each monster could have

Goliath: Call of the Wild- goliath beats his chest which summons three reavers that charge at a hunter that you targeted with your cursor

Kraken: EMP- kraken charges up and releases a field of energy that knocks back hunters and jams their jetpacks for a few seconds

Wraith: syphon- wraith shoots out a ghost figure that goes through a hunter and comes back giving her more armor

Behemoth: mud trap- behemoth stabs the floor which creates a river of mud. He can control the direction of this to target a hunter and if it hits the hunter cannot move for 8 seconds or shorter if the hunter keeps pressing the space bar

Just think about the combos the monsters could have with these

Emp aftershock. Op please nerf

Golaith alternatives set 1

Combo (instead of charge)

Works like the basic attack but he swings garter faster and does more damage for like maybe 3 seconds and the more hits he lands the faster and more damage he deals, like combos is other video games everywhere

Combustion (instead of flame breath)

Causes the area around him to combust into flames that stay on the ground like a lava bomb and all hunters caught inside of it are set on fire

Crippler (instead of leap smash)

You launch yourself at the hunter and if you land it then it deals a good amount of damage and reduces they’re movement speed by 50% until they are healed by ether regen or the medic, doesn’t have to go all the way back up to full health just has to be close

Catapult (instead of rock throw)

You grab a hunter and throw them up in the air behind you which disrupts beems, can be used on multiple hunters, if they stand right next to eachother and deals damage depending on where they land, while thrown in the air jet pack is disabled until they touch the ground

Goliath alternative set 2

Roar (instead of flame breath)

Cause all wildlife within a 60 meter proximity to become hyper aggressive and go after the hunters, even obsidian grubs, larger creatures are more resistant to it and require a closer proximity

Repulse (replaces charge)

Sets out waves of something that pushes away all the hunters around you disrupting all abilies the hunters are using but dealing very low damage

Rake (replaces something)

For three seconds golaiths basic attack mark all the hunters he hits highlighting them in red and making them take bleed damage until healed

RIP (replaces something)

Causes all dead bodies in a proximity of 30 meters to combust and blast hunters away if they are standing close enough, can be used to stop a Lazarus revive and paired with roar can be very effective

@Therubexcube would love some feedback
@kai you to
@Karcharock don’t fail me now
@BehemothOrigins one of you hast to be awake
@Rapterror running out…
