Nightcrawler - Dota 6.65 New Hero?

IceFrog has just post a Dota 6.65 teaser on his blog today. And inside, there's only a video without any comment. But the title is enough to explain everything, that the new hero inside this video is named Nightcrawler. The hero is somehow invisible and has a brown cloud above his head. Geez, i'm curious what kind of hero is that. If you wanna find out, watch below video! ;)


Curious? For your information, Nightcrawler is taken from X-Men character. His ability is able to turned himself into a cloud/smoke. Watch below Nightcrawler video, maybe IceFrog will take the original character into the model :)

  2. seriously it looks 1mb4 from the way it killed viper + sniper.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I wonder what skills the hero has, we know that the hero has chain lighting-ish skill

    ReplyDelete
  4. If having a Mael/MJ is a skill then yes lighting is one of his skills.

    Ya and it does totally look imba.. from not knowing a single ability except he seems to have perma invis at night that shows smoke so its not really invis since you can easy mode dust him. Im sure their be tons of awfuls calling him imba thou.

    ReplyDelete
  5. If it has perma-invis at night,with night stalker in your team it will be more imba

    ReplyDelete
  6. no!!! the blood and lightning is not his skills!!!
    he is just attacking while invisible and sange/maelstorm procs.

  7. new hero? first is rupture. And second is ulti's razor + lothar edge (enemy sight+slow motion).

    ReplyDelete
  8. i think he has mjolnir against viper..against kardel i dunno what is it..what i saw is a backstab animation..correct me if im wrong..it is also i think he has the ability jaz like blur of mort which he is semi-invi but w/ faster movement speed buff..

    ReplyDelete
  9. how to target it I wonder...looks kinda blur...IMBA by the way

    ReplyDelete
  10. cnt wait for a new hero...xD

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think the hero will be added instead of rikimaru and will have same figure us riki. Also I think he will have one of riki's abilities - backstab damage, and maybe this abilities:
    slow enemies, move faster and the ulti - go invise with night.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Commment:
    Sniperkill: While using sange or sny.
    Viperkill: While using Mael/Mjol
    Well he hasnt got blur, just look: Theres no healthbar.
    And he wont be permainvis @night. Theres Riki for that.The only way he could use that is Riki being replacd by NC.
    Most interesting: Ne doesnt get revealed when attacking, like Zero fading time. Might be interesting. He ill be overpowered though. Its Icefrogs usual behaviour^^

  13. could it be a new invulnerable boss who just wanders the map and if it cathes you bye-bye ?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good looking hero and great music! I can't wait for its release.

    I remember something similar in a past beta map, so I did a little searching in this blog. I quote a poster.

    "Anonymous said...
    I´ve got another new Hero named Slark.

    I made the mode -sd and got this hero. I uploaded some screenshot. A murloc!?!?!?

    After doing some quick tests, I found that hero. His name is Slark, the Murloc Nightcrawler. As far as I can tell, he had two skills in the beta.

    Skill 1) Like Charge of Darkness. Except you become invisible and leave a dark trail behind. Cast range is around 700 maybe,

    Skill 2) I didn't get to test it out, but I recall it being something like Track. You gain sight of the hero and the hero loses sight of everything except you. I'm not sure if this is correct, but that's what I remember reading.

    I can't be sure if this hero is anything like the one Icefrog showed in the trailer, but its something to keep you thinking :D

  15. This update means that dota 6.65 is coming closer!
    Yay! =D

    ReplyDelete
  16. dudes, first off
    Nightcrawler`s ability in X-men is teleportation[disappears in black smoke and appears somewhere else kinda like QoP blink].

    most probably not a new boss since IceFrog puts then on X.X9 versions [6.49 for invoker 6.59b for TC]

    anyways seems easy to counter, when you see a trail of smoke , dust or ward it , if all else fails TP is your friend

    ReplyDelete
  18. he doesn't turn into smoke... he just phases out and phases in on another place with a smoke effect, so i really hope he has some sort of teleport or blink ability

    ReplyDelete
  19. i think his skill increase the percentage of orb effect from item happening becoz if the maim and lighting is part of his abilities it will be super imba

    ReplyDelete

    ? I'm not sure if Icefrog based anything off of this but the name makes me think. Hmm =^)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I doubt those two links give much information about the new hero. We have only seen his smokey skill and that isn't reflected in any of the suggestions.
    Also, do remember that dota-allstars.com is no longer official, and Icefrog probably only takes ideas from Playdota nowadays. After some searching, I have not found anything that fits. Therefore, assume Icefrog came up with it himself.

    The trailer is out. Let's hope 6.55 comes out soon!

    ReplyDelete
  22. i would like to see what this 'new hero' is in 6.65...but with the mysteriousness of this video and the music and how it's just a 'smoke monster' thing would it be more suitable for 6.66?
    also maybe its not a new hero, but a new type of item?

    ReplyDelete

    Look at this link look like IceFrog got idea from here maybe who know..
    coz look like the abilities is the nearest to the video..

    ReplyDelete
  24. He is imba..look it kill viper and sniper so fast because of sniper and viper less hp gain..if no vanguard..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wel..at that link icefrog firsts suggests a double butterfly double mkb build and then clearly says that butterfly shouldn't be part of his build...so i am a bit confused overall , and even more by his abilities

    ReplyDelete
  26. hey guys, check the link below.. its about the new dota 6.65 hero..

    i think the hero is imbalance..
    and if u wanna face balanar, u can use this hero because it will became invisible just in the night.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. oops, correction for my post above..
    balanar ulti will make this hero visible.. thanks..

    ReplyDelete
  28. mistake again. =.=a

    balanar ulti can make this hero INvisible (sorry not visible :p) and balanar can't see nightcrawler in the night time..

    ReplyDelete
  29. mistake again. =.=a

    ReplyDelete
  30. will you fucktards stop linking to those hero suggestions on the forums? they have literally nothing to do with the hero and any asshole can figure that out really easily, its just that you all have down syndrome or some shit and think we all care about your inability to figure shit out

    ReplyDelete
  31. @above : calm down man.. u fucking moron shit face.. the people who give the link bcoz they just wanna share the information..

    ReplyDelete
  32. almost everyone says it's IMBA, just w8 for the hero then judge it if its IMBA

    ReplyDelete
  33. What no one is taking care about is that in the last scene that creep got more than 250 dmg just meeting his path, that's the only very scary thing imo.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What about balanar with scepter? this nightcrawler still IMBA? ;P

    ReplyDelete
  35. Attacking without being seen in the night, maybe. It's the result of permanent invisibility stacking.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It looks liken in the video, that nightcrawler is semi-ranged, like Templar Assassin.

    ReplyDelete
  37. its just in a beta mode, for sure icefrog will balance him.. looks like a definite end game hero like riki but who knows..

    aside from the new hero i also wish a hero remake, like pudge, he is almost useless at 5v5 aside from his hook, at least change his ulti, like regenerating his life when using dismember coz he's actualy eating the flesh right?

    ReplyDelete
  38. thats what aganism does..
    -.-

    ReplyDelete
  39. Very interesting news!!
    I guess the model is same as that of the neutral creep camp murloc.

    I would also like to see a QoP buff, nessaj buff, return the speed buff to Krobelus. moreover , agi hero's lack a Core AGI item unlike for str and int (HoT,Satanic : Orchid, shiva, Hex.

    Regards

    ReplyDelete
  40. isnt butterfly a core agi item?
    or perhaps even manta

    ReplyDelete
  41. now that mjolnir has been reworked, there's only 1 core agi item, which uses the eaglehorn

    ReplyDelete
  42. i think he use sange and yasha on sniper and mjolnir on viper. i dont think its his skills

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOL @ people getting worked up at how imba the new hero is. This is a mere teaser so the hero was intended to be imba just to showcase a little of his abilities. The finished product will definitely be toned-down, and won't be as overly imba as what you've seen in this teaser video (but still imba, though, as Ice has this habit of releasing new heroes with imba skill mechanics to collect feedback from players and later on tweak and balance the hero's skills with the rest of the roster.)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've tried to read the comments but there are too many retarded ones so I didn't make it. That's why I apologize if I don't say anything new.

    But the thing is that if you were with this blog for some time you should remember info about nightcrawler - it's the murloc hero who was implemented in map code long ago but wasn't finished at that time. He had ability making him charge his prey rendering the target hero blind (he could only see a murloc) and some other ability (only two at that time). Now IceFrog apparently finished him and intends to add him into 6.65 or maybe later.

    And the blood/lightning are obviously orb effect animations from sange/s&y and maelstrom/mjolnir, duh.

    ReplyDelete
  45. and btw, gotta add that the way he killed sniper/viper doesn't say anything about his being any sort of imba - you know absolutely nothing about items/levels difference between nightcrawler and sniper/viper, they can have no items at all and 1lvl and he can have anything (like s&y/maelstrom minimum, judging from orb effect animations).
    duh.

    ReplyDelete
  46. To all of you who say he's imba, here's the cold hard truth for you: He is NOT. Any hero with an invis skill is inherently weak to dust+disable and if you noticed, they don't really seem to have alot of hp, do they? Furthermore, his invis leaves a frigging black cloud FFS. This means that he virtually cannot sneak up/gank/ambush a hero unless you're that dumb as to not carry a tp. Which means you deserve to get killed, btw. So if you see nightcrawler coming what do you do? Simple. TP in his face. (Same thing goes for a bone that's dumb enough not to get MKB)

  47. HERO ABILITIES


    1)Nightcrawler's Flashbang
    Casting this spell NC damages evbdy, slowing their movespeed by 35% and and prevents them from attacking, lasts 2.5 sec

    Level 1 - Deals 120 damage and has a 200 AOE.
    Level 2 - Deals 200 damage and has a 240 AOE.
    Level 3 - Deals 280 damage and has a 270 AOE.


    Level 4 - Deals 330 damage and has a 300 AOE.

    Cooldown: 30 seconds
    Mana cost: 100/110/120/130

    The casting time is 1 second.
    The casting range is 400


    2)Creates a defense around himself giving him a chance to reflect the percentage of the damage taken.

    Level 1 - 10% chance to reflect the 120% of the nightcrawler's received damage.
    Level 2 - 10% chance to reflect the 150% of the nightcrawler's received damage.
    Level 3 - 10% chance to reflect the 180% of the nightcrawler's received damage.
    Level 4 - 10% chance to reflect the 200% of the nightcrawler's received damage.

    3) Passive
    Becomes invisible at night. If he starts to attack the opponent or use any skill he will again become visible. Just like Rikimaru ulti

    Level 1 - The nightcrawler becomes invisible when night. Has 8 seconds fade time.
    Level 2 - The nightcrawler becomes invisible when night. Has 7 seconds fade time.
    Level 3 - The nightcrawler becomes invisible when night. Has 6 seconds fade time.
    Level 4 - The nightcrawler becomes invisible when night. Has 5 seconds fade time.


    4) Ulti

    Death Stab


    Attacking in face (sorry for my gram. >_<), he deals more damage. Attacking the enemy's back slows it by the 30%.

    Level 1 - adds a bonus 25% of damage.
    Level 2 - adds a bonus 50% of damage.
    Level 3 - adds a bonus 75% of damage.

    Orb Effects do not stack

Louis Vuitton competes directly with such luxury brands as Versace, Bijan, Hermès, gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Dior, jimmy choo , Chanel, Fendi, Armani, and Prada.After the death of his father, Georges Vuitton began a campaign to build the company into a worldwide corporation, Moncler Jackets exhibiting the company's products at the Chicago canada goose World's Fair in 1893.
