    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    Divine Rejuvenation

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    Human Priest/Elf Priest

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    Medium/ 20 second

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.
    Human/Elf Priest can get this skill only at lvl 49 when they get at least 30 Divine talents points.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    Divine Rejuvenation is a party heal skill. Once the Priest active it, chart will heal 1800 hp to all party member in 16-20meter range every 20 seconds non-stop; Auto-Heal will continue until it's cancelled or until mana point are lower then 20%

    *What makes it unique? Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill.
    Actually less people playing a Priest and most of the players choise to take a Bard instead of a Priest in a party because they get a faster party heal skill. Priest in all game are allways the main healers/buffers and for this reason they need a better party heal skill, actually they get only 1 party heal skill and it got 300 sec cooldown... This is quite unbalance for a Priest.

    What is your skill/spell/ability named?

    Cheat Death

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    It's a all class skill

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    no mana cost/30 min cooldown (can only be activated if you have 10% hp max or less)

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill?

    It's an achievement.To get it you have to have aggro of 50 mobs(5lv difference allowed) at once and survive (no squad allowed).Then you get a quest to kill a machine like boss and get as a reward, a box that is bound and has the text written on it "No one here"


    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    It's useful if you have a herd of mobs on your tail.When used you hide in a box to escape aggro (movement speed reduced by 75%/pots can't be used), but the mobs don't reset, they start looking for you.This skill works only for 30 seconds.During that time you have to crawl away from them by 15 meters the least.If succeed they reset, if not you get aggro again.

    During that time one of these sentences can appear from you giving a specific effect:

    1. "Where did i drop my cigar?" - increases speed by 50%
    2."I hope there are no snakes in here" - removes poison or any other Dot
    3."This box gives me unlimited ammo" - heal mana and hp by 25%
    4."I found a quarter!" - you gain 25 trade-able cooper coins
    5."i needed to go to the bathroom anyway..." - can't move for 10 seconds
    6."To hide in the box you need to be the box" - mobs reset immediately
    7."I learned this in a game, good thing it actually works..." - no effect

    *What makes it unique?

    I think it's an interesting skill that doesn't exist in any MMORPG and quite useful too, but it can't be used in PvP

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?

    My skill is named Earthquake.

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    It's an race skill only for stoneman. So it is only avaible for protectors.

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    My skill requires moderate amount of mana and has a cooldown of 1 minute.

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.

    To get this skill you have to finish a dungeon in a given amount of time. The level of the mobs in the dungeon should be 35-40. But the timelimit shouldn't be too hard. A normal group of lvl 40 players should win this 'timeattack' after 2-3 tries :). Of couse the other classes get their own racial skill at this challenge.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    The protector takes his giant maul and hit the ground so hard, that the earth begins to shake. All monster in 10 meter radius have a reduced moving(50%) speed for 3 sec (each point of fury adds 1 sec). Also this attack generates aggro to all mobs in the radius(less than mass taunt). Therefor this skill deals low damage.

    *What makes it unique?

    This skill is a mix of crowdcontrol and aggrocontrol. Right used this skill can give the group a few second on a hard fight, especially if there are too many adds. But it needs a good timing.

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill

    In the talent tree outer crust could be a talent increasing the damage a lot.
    In the talent tree protect could be a talent increasing the aggro done by this skill.

    The icon can look similar to this:

    ]Hi guys heres my skill ^^

    Name of the skill :
    The name of the skill will be Forbidden Strenght

    For what Class/Race is the skill?
    For Warrior (both races)

    What is the Mana Cost?
    The skill will use all the mana you have at the moment you use the skill.

    What is the Cooldown?
    The cooldown will be 2 to 3 minutes (Administrators can decide that i think)

    How do you get the Skill?
    you will get the skill by completing a quest line at level 50

    What does your skill do exactly?
    The skill uses all your mana, how more mana you have (use) when using the skill how more damage the skill will give to the target. because the skill will be pretty strong the caster will get a 2 second stunn after using the skill.

    What makes it unique?
    i think the mana use and the caster stunn effect makes it a bit unique ^^

    Anything else mentioning about the skill?
    Well... im not saying this should be a ultimate power skill... but... it should be pretty strong because it has a pretty long cooldown and the caster will be stunned after using it.

    The Icon. (im no artist so.... it should look like a fist with a blue flaming circel arround it ^^)

    i cant upload the icon im sorry for the problems plz check this link : http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5238629704/

    Here it's
    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    Element Beam
    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    Each Mage
    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    4 levels = 25/50/75/100
    Casting time is fixed = 1,5s
    Cooldown is fixed = 10s
    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.
    Type = Learnable Skill
    Learnable Levels = 20/30/40/50
    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    Unleash one elemental-less attack to one target and hit in a range of 8/12/16/20 meters/yards all the enemy around dealing 100% Base Damage plus a static bonus of 500/1000/1500/2000 damage. The skill does not have an element itself, but take the element of the higher Element Mastery of the mage and become as it. The target hitted do have a double Dot damage that burn their HP/MP drastically each second for 10s. Each tick they take 80/160/240/320 damage on HP and MP. The dot is not stackable.
    *What makes it unique?
    It's an aoe skill that make each mage special. There isn't any kind of skill around the game, that does auto apply the mage charateristics on his own skills.
    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill
    The lack of special aoe skills on mages make them a bit weaker since that is a weak class itself on defence. Since they are the most DD based classes, they should have good single spells (that they have) and good Aoe Spells. Fire mages does have 2 Aoe, but each one does not offer much on end-game. Thunder (wind) mage the same, and ice too. So offering them a special skill that does take their own element depend on how they are build will make more chances to them to stay alive.
    Bonus point option: MSpaint the icon for your skill. Use this masterfully crafted template square to create the icon image. (note: Artistic ability not required!)
    I can't imaginate a some design for it. It should be like a flame with reversed colors.

    Anyway i does have a similar skill from another game i play: skill1292_0.png

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?

    Death And Beyond

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?


    Vampire

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    No mana cost / 10 min cooldown

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.


    In the journey of becoming immortals, the vampires found the means to defy death for a short period of time. You get the skill after completing a long and hard series of quests, because immortality isn't cheap. The quest starts at lvl 10 and can be completed only at lvl 40.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    After the player dies, defies death for 8 seconds. The caster is able to use skills in this period, but is unable to move.
    Also the skill can be tomed like this:
    The duration of defying death is increased with every 2 kills by 2 seconds to a max of 20 sec.

    *What makes it unique?

    It's an unique skill for any mmorpg and makes the vampires more veritable.

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill

    True vampires know they have to reach immortality, so this is the first step to it.

    Nutshot

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    Marksman

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    Medium/High - 1 min CD

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.

    The Dwarves, forever of short stature, have learned to manipulate their taller adversaries in the form of groinal punishment. After rigorous special training (Medium length 'special' quest chain starting @ lv 35, completed @ 40), the Dawrves learn this special fighting technique

    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    Short range (5m). With a large scream the marksman charges his enemy, slamming the butt of his gun into the enemies groin. Dealing 75% base Damage + 1337 - 100% chance to stun Male targets for 2 seconds - causes confusion on female targets for 2 seconds

    *What makes it unique?

    I feel like marksman are lacking a short range stun for those pesky melee'rs all up in their grill. Plus the male - female dynamic and the general lol worthiness of it :D

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill

    Its all fun and games till someone gets their nuts crunched. - Old Dawrven proverb.

    Here i go :

    Name: Ultimate Friendship

    Class: Priest
    Not race specific

    The priest must be in a party for the skill to be efficient , because it will use 20% of every party member, including you, and will do damage equal to the amount of mana "given" by the all party members.

    Cooldown: 2 min

    You will get it from a quest, where you have to protect somebody, and for that you will be given this skill.
    Not to mention that as a priest you will be most of the time in a party, and you don't have many skills for dps (from what I'v heard).

    Description of the skill (When hovering mouse over it) :



    The power of friendship will kill those that are weak and will heavy injure others.
    Mana: 20% from every member in the party.
    Damage: equal with the total amount of mana gathered

    The name of my skill is Siren Melody.

    This skill is for the bard.

    its cost 25% of your mana. The Cooldown is 1 hour.

    ist a special skill. you get it when you are lvl 40.

    Its a aoe skill. It stuns all enemy in the radius of 10 meters and make all enemies in the area great damage.

    I think its a special skill, because it have two effects. The first is to stunning enemy and the second is to make a aoe damage.

    The skill have a long Cooldown so use it wisely.

    And sorry for my bad english. I live in Germany.^^

    Visions of Torment

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    Vampire - Kindred

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    250 Mana and 2% Health. 2min cooldown

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.

    Can be purchased at Lvl 40, but only when aquired the Deed of the Apocalypse.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    This ability lets you sarcrifice your will to cast visions of death, torment, and hell upon your oponent. This cast drains your victims health/mana X amount per second and and slowing your target by X%.

    *What makes it unique?

    This ability is designed for PVP based combat. This ability is used as either a last resort or a way to buy some time to inflict serious damage. The downside is that the higher the skill level the more the mana and health you have to sacrifice.

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill

    This skill inflicts Dark damage and regular damage. Dark resistance does have some effect on the amount of damage taken.

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    Bleeding Heart

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    Kindred - Vampire

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    All mana plus 90% of your HP.

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.
    Talent skill you get at level cap...or you can obtain it sooner by completing a difficult quest line. There are many groups of mobs you need to take down, that are spread out through out the world ( so you will be venturing to higher level areas ), but you only have a certain amount of time to complete this quest in. If you fail it is NOT repeatable and you will have to wait till level cap to acquire it.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    You can focus on a single target (for example the tank) and use Bleeding Heart to deplete your HP to 10% and mana to 0, to help them gain 75% of their HP back. It is great if there is an instance where the healer can't get to the tank in time. Also may prevent complete squad wipes.

    *What makes it unique?
    Mmmm I haven't stumble across anything like it in any of the games I have played. :P

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill
    Bleeding Heart has a cooldown time of 20 minutes. Charms do not work and you will be left very vulnerable against anything that could happen. Potions will only restore half of the set Mana and HP for the first 30 seconds after you use Bleeding Heart. After the 30 seconds you will be able to use your pots to their fullness. Also when you perform this skill girl vampires blow a kiss at their target and male vampires give a Naruto style victory.^^

    Bonus point option: MSpaint the icon for your skill. Use this masterfully crafted template square to create the icon image. (note: Artistic ability not required!)

    Depletes all mana and freezes mana recharge. Cooldown is 10 minutes.

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.
    The skill can be acquired starting at half way to level cap.
    You have to complete a survival test quest.
    The quest will be a grueling 1 hour continuous onslaught of mobs.
    Last the hour and receive the skill.


    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    You start the Hulking Rage skill and a timer starts counting down. 30 seconds to get hit 20 times. During this countdown and while the skill is in effect you have no mana and can perform no special skills, spells nor attacks. You can only use basic attacks. Any health charms will have no effect so you can die if you are charmed. You can only use pots and be healed by others but at a 50 % reduction of effect. If you survive the 30 seconds and get hit no less than 20 times, you then go into Hulking Rage. Hulking Rage gives you invincibility and double attack strength (basic attack only) while the new timer is counting down. The timer is again set to 30 seconds and you have to get hit at least 20 times to reset the timer back to 30. The timer will not stack. 30 seconds is always the max and during Hulking Rage just like the skill prep period you have no mana and can perform no special skills, spells nor attacks only basic attacks. Also during Hulking Rage you have to at least kill 2 mobs every 30 seconds so as to not make the skill too godly.

    *What makes it unique?
    I think with all the prep work and requirements alone make it almost a quest within a skill.

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    Lycanthrope

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    It's Kindred-specific, so Kindred assassins/mages/vampires can all learn it.

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    Mana cost varies by class using it. Assassins are less effective with the skill, but it has a low mana cost, vampires have a moderate effectiveness with a moderate mana cost, and mages have a high effectiveness with a high mana cost.
    The cooldown is ten minutes.

    *How do you get it?
    In order to obtain the skill, the aspiring Kindred must be at least level 40. Said Kindred then meets with the Werewolf Liaison, a traitor to his people who is willing to teach their secrets. The Kindred will have to defeat an elite mob (Werewolf Goliath) by his/herself. Once this has been completed, the Werewolf Liaison will teach his people's secret.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    The skill is a buff that can be used on anyone (including the caster). When used, it transforms the player into a werewolf for one minute. Physical classes (as well as Marksmen) will have their damage and attack speed greatly increased (the actual amount being dependent on which Kindred class uses the skill) with a decrease in accuracy (due to the blind-rage that their new-found lycanthrope inflicts upon them). Magic classes will have their damage increased and their casting time reduced (once again, the amount being dependent on the Kindred who casts the buff) but will have their defenses lowered greatly.

    *What makes it unique?
    The skill allows the affected players to transform into werewolves, and the benefits and penalties associated with this can have very interesting affects on both PvE and PvP.

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill
    The skill's animation would be a dark portal opening up beneath the Kindred using it, followed by a full moon appearing over the person on to which the buff is cast. The buff-recipient would then be enveloped in moonlight and then transformed into a werewolf. The appearance of the werewolf would differ between genders and whether the buff-recipient is a physical or magical classes (i.e. a physical class would have a more muscular werewolf while a magic class would have a more arcane/intelligent-looking werewolf).

    What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    Muscular Strength

    What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    Any Warrior class. Not race specific

    What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    The mana costs for this skill should be 20% of the users total mana. The cooldown should be 5minutes.

    How do you get it?
    The skill should be accessible at lvl 40 in the talent tree of Rage.

    What does your skill do, exactly?
    The skill is a selfbuff skill that gives the warrior an additional 15% phy. atk and 15% atk. speed, but on the other hand lower the physical and magical defense by 20%. The casting time for the selfbuff should be around 3-5 second and the effect of it should last 2 minutes. The cooldown, as mentioned above should be 5 minutes.

    What makes it unique?
    The selfbuff is mainly for warriors with a damage dealer build. The main purpose of the skill is in pvp, because it boosts the attack power and helps you killing your opponent a lot faster. On the contrary, because of the lower defense, warriors will have to think more about their timing, when to take action. So it is a kind of two edged sword.

    Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill
    The way the skill look like should be:
    1. Ramming their sword in the earth
    2. While casting the skill the body of the warrior should start glowing red
    3. When the casting is finished the warrior should pull his sword out of the earth, producing a mass of rocks of small and large rocks, which get knocked out of the ground
    4. while the skill is active the whole body of the warrior should glow slightly red

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?

    Gift of The Gods


    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    Priest any race


    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?

    very low mana cost 180 second cool down


    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40?
    Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.

    I did think of a long epic quest chain but for ease of adding it to the class.
    I think a world boss drop at lvl30 and bind on pickup


    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    Can only be cast on a party member.Injects 20% of the priests total mana to the
    target and the priest.

    Working on a % it will scale with lvl, so the skill will always grow with the players lvl
    and gear.


    *What makes it unique?

    Well i don,t know the classes skills very well yet but im guessing no class has a
    mana transfer skill


    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill

    This type of skill is not game breaking, easy to add to the game and for the better part
    has no efect in pvp.

    Cheat Death

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?

    It's a all class skill

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    no mana cost/30 min cooldown (can only be activated if you have 10% hp max or less)

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill?

    It's an achievement.To get it you have to have aggro of 50 mobs(5lv difference allowed) at once and survive (so squad allowed).Then you get a quest to kill a machine like boss and get as a reward, a box that is bound and has the text written on it "No one here"


    *What does your skill do, exactly?

    It's useful if you have a herd of mobs on your tail.When used you hide in a box to escape aggro (movement speed reduced by 75%/pots can't be used), but the mobs don't reset, they start looking for you.This skill works only for 30 seconds.During that time you have to you must crawl away from them by 15 meters the least.If succeed they reset, if not you get aggro again.

    During that time one of these sentences can appear from you giving a specific effect:

    1. "Where did i drop my cigar?" - increases speed by 50%
    2."I hope there are no snakes in here" - removes poison or any other Dot
    3."This box gives me unlimited ammo" - heal mana and hp by 25%
    4."I found a quarter!" - you gain 25 trade-able cooper coins
    5."i needed to go to the bathroom anyway..." - can't move for 10 seconds
    6."To hide in the box you need to be the box" - mobs reset immediately
    7."I learned this in a game, good thing it actually works..." - no effect

    *What makes it unique?

    I think it's an interesting skill that doesn't exist in any MMORPG and quite useful too, but it can't be used in PvP

    ... that doesn't exist in any MMORPG ...

    Well i don't know if there's already plans on adding this type of skills on the game.. but.. here it goes..

    When designing your skill, it may be helpful to keep in mind the following criteria:

    *What is your skill/spell/ability named?
    God's Will, God's Favor, Wrath of God (depending on the skill)

    *What class does it belong to? Is it race specific?
    Non race specific. Im thinking more about a Guild skill castable by the Guild Master only, so any race/class can have it.

    *What is its mana cost/cooldown?
    No mana cost.. it May cost either.. Contrib Points or Zeal from the Guild and Maybe a Cooldown time of 5mins (300 secs) and planning makin them only casteable a certain amount of times in the day, lets say 1 time each day.. or 3.. or 5.. something like that..

    *How do you get it? Is it a talent skill? One you get automatically at level 40? Do you have to finish an epic quest line to unlock it? Etc.
    Well you have to be the Guild Master of a High Lvl Guild (wich now i think its 3, not really high).. maybe lvl 5 or something.. and Also.. u need to finish Special Guild quest Chain to be able to get any of the possible Skills.
    Also for the Highest Grade and Better Skills the Guild Master Must have at least certain amount of Achievements Achieved ( like.. 150 or something) and for the Mastery/Resistance boost..the Guild Master gotta have Those Achievements Achieved already.

    *What does your skill do, exactly?
    Depending on the Skill you Choose, your Guild Members will get a certain Boost on Attack, Move Speed, Defense, Max Hp, Max Mp, Crit Rate, Crit Dodge, Resistance and/or MAstery Boost and so on.. even Heal Hp to Guild members or Mp.. All possibly based on a % value rather than a static value
    This will add a huge variety of Possible Guild Skills to get via Quests and Contrib/Zeal points.

    *What makes it unique?
    It's Guild skills wich will be really hard to get and that will help the whole guild on battles like.. Guild wars, World Bosses Fights or Dungeons
    I Supposed there were already plans for something like this.. if not.. this would be a really nice addition..

    *Anything else you feel is worth mentioning for your skill
    Well i was thinking more in a bunch of New skills rather than only 1 specific and maybe u can also make them improveable.. and like a tree of skills.. so u can get better and better skills for the Guild..
    Notes that everytime u cast them it will cost Either Contrib/Zeal points from the guild.. that way will make the Guild working everyday in recovering these points so they can keep using them.

    Well i wont add any icon.. since im talking about a bunch of skills and not only one.. xd

    Hope u like the idea..
