Powerset Suggestion: Circus Performers


Recommended Posts

Please be gentle, it's been awhile since I've tried to design a powerset!

 

Circus Performers

You command a troupe of lively performers. These colorful artists specialize is stunning foes and knocking them off their feet! Circus Performers are nimble and adept at dodging, as well as trained in maintaining their balance.

Summon one to three Clowns (depending on your level) to do your bidding. Clowns are nimble and capable fighters, especially since most enemies will let their guards down around a harmless Clown. You may only have 3 Clowns under your control at any given time. If you attempt to call Clowns, you can only replace the ones you have lost in battle. If you already have three, the power will fail.

If you attempt to call more, you can only replace the ones you have lost in battle. If you already have your maximum allowed number, the power will fail.

xN4rdVt.png  Summon Firebreather

Turn up the heat on your foes with a performance from a Firebreather! Your Firebreather will attack foes from a distance with Fiery Breath that leaves behind burning patches of fuel. The Firebreather will also occasionally ignite your other Henchman’s weapons, adding Fire Damage to all their attacks for a short time. Because fire breathing is dangerous work, this performer won’t stick around for long and will eventually retreat to recover. The Firebreather cannot gain new abilities from Train Performers and Upgrade Performers.

It’s like a circus of crime!  +1 for new powersets!

Seems a little basic? All three tier 1 pets are identical, there's only one move across the three pet powers that isn't just an attack, and the tier 7 power seems like it only summons another pet to have another power to put pet IOs in.

 

Well, about it being basic, I wanted it to seem doable in the current state of the game, so I tried to limit new mechanics and gimmicks.

 

For the tier 1 pets, they are all the same, but to be fair, the other Primaries are kind of split, with 4 having different tier 1s, and 3 having them all the same. Since I knew I wanted the second tier pets to be different (something that is currently only done in Demon Summoning, I think), I figured it would be okay to leave the tier 1 pets all the same.

 

Although if I'm being honest, the original plan for the tier 1 pets was that the third would be a firebreather. Then, instead of summoning a Firebreather pet at tier 7, the power was just going to be Fiery Performance, with the MM giving his pets fire damage. Then I realized while I was writing descriptions out, you couldn't slot Fiery Performance with anything unless I made it a Build Up also, which I didn't want to do because then I couldn't have it as an AoE or else it'd have to be on a really long recharge. So the Firebreather was pulled out and made a temporary pet that could grant Fiery Performance.

 

Also, I agree the non-attacks are lacking, and I did want to add more, but I also had concerns about Pet AI using anything efficiently. However, I do consider the Clowns aura another non-attack power in the mix. When they're together they're potentially debuffing a group of enemies by -15% Damage and Defense.

 

Basically I had bigger ideas, but I don't know what is and isn't possible right now.

Please tell me they show up in tiny cars.

 

I was thinking something simpler, like using the PrestoChango costume change emote.  ;D

No. Each tier summons brings in one car, out of which however many pets you get for that tier pile out, except for the Strongman, who zooms in seated in an Al Bahr-like miniature car, then dives out, rolling to his feet while the car zooms on and fades out (comparable to the arrival of the tier 3 Thugs pet). The Tier 1 and 2 cars, however, must be obviously too small to hold even one pet of that tier, much less 3.
