Re: Leaf_It's customs. [UPDATED: OCT. 1, 2018]

It's a little hard to visualize this design without the mini...so I'll wait for that, but I'm also super curious about that special ability. I'm really not quite sure what you mean by Anticipated Assault or really how that would OR should look like as an ability. So if you could give some explanation on that ability that might help. That and maybe it just needs a rename.

Re: Leaf_It's customs. [UPDATED: OCT. 1, 2018]

After talking about it yesterday, I was also thinking that Anticipated Assault isn't a great name for what the power actually does mechanically and thematically, since it seems more like an immediate counter. Maybe something more to do with retaliation or a reprisal, and maybe throw in something martial artsy to specify it as a technique.

Re: Leaf_It's customs. [UPDATED: OCT. 1, 2018]


The idea behind Anticipated Assault, was simply a vengeful retaliation. They are patient, and wait for an opening to attack. The longer they were attacked, the more vicious the assault. I didn't want to create a design that just let them attack multiple times, like double attack, or whirlwind assault. This was a premeditated retaliation, based on whether they were attacked, and how often they were attacked. They anticipate the opening, where they will be able to unleash their pent up aggression from being on the defensive.

Re: Leaf_It's customs. [UPDATED: OCT. 1, 2018]

I would suggest going with a monkish sounding name.

Way of the hundreds fists

Or something like that.

Also what about making the second attack “amped” up.

“Oh you wanna mess with me?” Bam, my second attack has deadly strike!

Re: Leaf_It's customs. [UPDATED: OCT. 1, 2018]

I'm okay with changing the name of Anticipated Assault, but I wanted the name to describe what the ability does. I thought of many names (though admittedly, I didn't try to make it sound "monkish") and the biggest issue I had, was that the vast majority of names that sounded good, also implied a more immediate effect. In her Bio, she remembers every time she is attacked, and she is very patient. She won't let people get a rise out of her, she will bide her time, waiting for the best opportunity to get her revenge. The problem is that names like 'Vengeful Retaliation', and 'Strikes of Vengeance' imply that they are happening right away. 'Anticipated Assault' works because it tells you that she can lay down a strong attack, and that the attack isn't necessarily immediate.

I don't really want to make the secondary attacks any stronger, simply because getting multiple attacks is always going to be powerful, so it doesn't seem necessary. Just like Iron Shirt Mastery on Yi Feng, she only needs to block the damage to activate the effect initial effect of getting a marker. I'd also like to see a cheaper options for the monks, and I'm relatively happy with how this design currently plays, so I don't see a need to make her more powerful, and thus expensive.

Re: Leaf_It's customs.

Anticipated Assault sounds kind of immediate to me too, like she's anticipating what's going to happen and then punching them before it happens (kind of Zogross-esque). To throw some words out: Patient Reprisal, Stoic Retaliation, Endured Retaliation, Bided Reprisal (Bode Reprisal? Bide is a weird verb to conjugate)? I can't think of anything super martial artsy since that's not my area of expertise, unfortunately. Maybe Way of the Willow? It's not super straight forward, but I know willows are used as metaphors for taking blows and springing right back into place.

Edit: should have checked before taking a while to post, but I like LO's ideas. The Way of Patience and Patient Retaliation especially.

Patience is not a bad word to use to describe what the ability is in it's own name, I considered it when I was trying to come up with names initially. I went with Anticipated because I thought it sounded better/cooler.

I didn't know that about Willows, but that makes sense, they have very flexible branches that go right back to where they were once you stop bending them.

hmmm... I'll have to try using Willow. I'm not sure if 'Way of the Willow' is exactly what I want, but maybe I'm just being picky.

Here's a few ideas:
Fist of the Patient Willow
Abiding Assault
Awaiting Fist of Fury
Abiding Fist of Fury
Fist of the Willow
Strike of the Willow

I'm open to more name suggestions.
