Ysera

Warcraft

Forged with Jeff Reynolds and Kristen Ashton

Featured Forger: MistakenMishaps


Introduction

Like so many dragons of Warcraft, Ysera existed long before Azeroth - as the Elves knew it - came into existence. A green dragon blessed by Eonar to forever be bound to the Dream of Creation, Ysera, younger sister to Alexstraza, watched the world grow from an unwaking dream. Though asleep for most of her existence, Ysera was capable of waking when the world needed her. She was there to defeat Deathwing and she was there to help find Malfurion following Cenarius’ corruption by Xavius. Sadly, however, this was one waking moment that should have never been. Though powerful beyond imagining, she could not fight the corruption of the Emerald Nightmare and ended up paying with her life for the very human flaw of impatience exhibited by Malfurion. Though dead, she was made into a constellation by Elune and now watches over Azeroth from her permanent seat in the heavens.


MistakenMishaps’ Choices

Appearance will be her humanoid form Elf is the normal and her new form on cata would be the master skin.

Would say special mount would be a stag but then since Malorne is a stag and they are friends I found it very awkward.

Special skin: Should be her corrupted nightmare version.

Jeff’s Choices

Role

Multi-Class (Support, Assassin)

Trait- “Dream… or Nightmare”

Being a multi-class hero the ultimate goal is to give the Ysera player choices that can alter her play style during the game based on the needs of the team. This trait is an activatable one that allows her to choose her form. Dream or Nightmare. Passively Yesera is always in the Dream form (Support) and is able to use her abilities to heal and support the team. During her time in her support form and by using her support abilities Ysera is gaining “Dream Power.” Once activated this trait is able to transform Ysera into her Nightmare form for a duration that is dictated by how much Dream power she has. When in her nightmare form her abilities change and have different focuses. The fantasy here is that Ysera would be a flexible support that would have the ability to support, and when needed act as a powerful Assassin in the Nexus.

Mount-  (Normal Form: Humanoid form) Mounted Form: Dragon Form

Q- “Cloud 9”

Ysera can place dream clouds on the battlefield that heal all allied heroes that are inside of them. When the cloud is placed amount of healing that they can do is set and the cloud drains that amount of mana from Ysera. It goes without saying that the placement of these clouds is key to ensure that the player is not wasting mana. When Ysera switches to her nightmare form the clouds turn into a trap for the enemy. SImilar to the nightmare clouds in the Emerald nightmare raid, if the enemy team stepps into one of the clouds the will release a nightmare poison that till deal damage to them over time.

W- “Inception”

Targeted friendly hero is placed into a dream and becomes gains a passive healing cloud that follows them on the battlefield. All friendly units that are near the player affected by this are healed over time and are able to continue the fight. This can be taken into later in the game to allow for the cloud to spread to other players as they come into contact with each other. WHen Ysera transforms into her nightmare form the cloud moves to her and becomes a nightmare cloud that will increase the amount of damage she is able to deal to the enemy with her abilities and basic attacks.

E- “Enter the Dream” Featured Forger Ability

Ysera cast a spell to herself, an ally or opponent on a Stasis, banishing them for 1 second. AS previously stated this can be used on all targets in the Nexus. In my specific build I imagine that she can only banish enemies when she is in the nightmare phase and would be able to remove a combatant from the field for a short amount of time.

Heroic 1- “Nightmare”

This ability is inspired by Ysera’s Hearthstone Dream card “Nightmare.” Give a Minion +5/+5 at the start of your turn destroy it. When activated Yesra can choose an AOE circle on the battlefield and make that range the Emerald Nightmare. All allies that fight in this area are given a massive damage increase as well as an overall health increase. If the players leave the Emerald Nightmare they are immediately taken to 15% health and are back to dealing a normal amount of damage. This can be talented into later in the game to also debuff the enemy players in the zone and force them to take increased damage. If Ysera selects this heroic all of her abilities that deal damage are granted a passive bonus to damage as well.

Heroic 2- “Dream”

Ysera opens a portal to the Emerald Dream and all heroes in the selected area a pulled through it and transported to the core with full health. If Ysera selects this heroic all of her abilities that heal are granted a passive bonus to healing. This ability can be used to clear the field during a teamfight that is not going well… or to retreat to defend the core.

Specialty Skin

        “Ysera in a Snuggie”

        Or “Miss Sandwoman” Complete with night stocking cap and a side schael of Dream sand.

Dance: “Ysera-Style” Gangnam Style… with a Ysera Twist… “Hey Sexy Lady” Don't ask why. No one knows.
