Hero Backstory:
Icarus, the son of the Sun, prodigal child of Daedalus. Thought lost when he plunged into the sea, he was actually safeguarded by the favour of Sol himself, falling through time and space to the mystical realm of Newerth. Forever bound to his wings of wax and flame he stalks the battlefield, scouring it of all unholy presences. Only when the Hellbourne is defeated will he be able to ascend to the heavens once more and meet his father at last.

Base Attack Type

Base Attack Notes:
Damage: 46 - 50

Range: 450

  • Hero Roles
Primary Role
Ganker
Secondary Role
Semi-carry
Role Notes:
Exactly what the primary and secondary roles say. Icarus is a very aggressive chaser that encourages fast micro and ganks throughout the laning phase. Could probably shoehorn him into a mid/solo lane, but his base attack range hampers his effectiveness in such a role.
  • Hero Abilities
Ability 1 Name
Wax Attack!
Ability 1 Action Type
Target - Ground
Ability 1 Notes:
Hurls at blob of wax at the target area. Enemies entering or hit by the Wax Attack! are Waxed! for as long as they remain within the affected area (Waxed! ends when the Wax Attack! expires), or for the duration.

Wax can be ignited by Burning Soul or Searing Curse; Wax Attack! no longer confers Waxed! upon units inside the AoE; instead it applies Hot Hot Hot! for as long as the Wax Attack! persists, or for as long as the target(s) remain in the area, plus an additional 2 seconds. The slow tapers off during the 2 seconds, the damage ticks both times.

CD: 14 / 14 / 14 / 10
Duration: 5 / 6 / 7 / 8
Manacost: 70 / 80 / 100 / 120
Radius: 50 / 100 / 150 / 200
Range: 600
(Application) Type: Magic

Level 1:

Waxed! :: 10% slow, - 1 Physical Armour
Hot Hot Hot! :: 10% slow, - 1 Physical Armour, 20 Physical damage per second

Level 2:

Waxed! :: 15% slow, - 2 Physical Armour
Hot Hot Hot! :: 15% slow, - 2 Physical Armour, 30 Physical damage per second

Level 3:

Waxed! :: 20% slow, - 3 Physical Armour
Hot Hot Hot! :: 20% slow, - 3 Physical Armour, 40 Physical damage per second

Level 4:

Waxed! :: 25% slow, - 4 Physical Armour
Hot Hot Hot! :: 25% slow, - 4 Physical Armour, 50 Physical damage per second
Ability 2 Name
Burning Soul
Ability 2 Action Type
Toggle
Ability 2 Notes:
COUNTS AS AN ATTACK MODIFIER

Adds damage over time to his base attacks. His base attacks now ignite Waxed! heroes.

This modifier stacks with itself; this refreshes the duration of this attack modifier and also refreshes the duration of Hot Hot Hot! if that is active on the target (for the maximum duration of Hot Hot Hot! at whatever level it is currently, so 5 + 2 at Level 1, scaling to 8 + 2 at Level 4).

Toggle effect (aura): Icarus also ignites ground-based Wax when he passes within 100/100/150/200 units of it (when this ability is leveled) - but not Waxed! heroes.

Disabling this ability disables the aura, but also disables the Attack Modifier.

CD: 1 / 1 / 1 / 0
Manacost (per attack): 5

Level 1: Deals 20 Magic damage per second. Applies for 1 seconds.

Level 2: Deals 30 Magic damage per second. Applies for 1.5 seconds.

Level 3: Deals 40 Magic damage per second. Applies for 2 seconds.

Level 4: Deals 50 Magic damage per second. Applies for 3 seconds.
Ability 3 Name
Eureka!
Ability 3 Action Type
Target - Ground
Ability 3 Notes:
Icarus leaps from one position to another in a straight line, stunning those around his start and finish positions. Icarus is invulnerable whilst leaping. Deals no damage.

CD: 20 / 17 / 15 / 14
Duration (time taken to leap): 600 units per second
Duration (stun): 0.5 / 1.0 / 1.5 / 2.0 seconds
Manacost: 120 / 130 / 140 / 150
Radius: 50 / 75 / 125 / 200 (stun only)
Range: 600
Type: Physical (stun only)
Ability 4 Name
Fervour of Sol
Ability 4 Action Type
Target - Units
Ability 4 Notes:
Target allied hero is marked by the favour of the gods. Conversely, enemy heroes suffer the wrathful flames of the gods, designed to burn their sins from their bodies. Applies Holy Flames to target friendly hero or Searing Curse to target enemy hero.

This is a buff or debuff, and thus can be Purged.

CD: 60 / 40 / 30
Duration: 6 / 9 / 12
Manacost: 150 / 180 / 240
Range: 600

Level 1:

Holy Flames :: 4 Health regeneration, + 4 Magic Armour. Target hero ignites Wax that he passes within 100 units of, for the duration of the ability.
Searing Curse :: 4 Health degeneration (to a minimum of 0), -4 Magic Armour. If Waxed!, removed Waxed! and apply Hot Hot Hot! as per the Wax Attack! ability (for the remaining duration plus 2 seconds).

Level 2:

Holy Flames :: 8 Health regeneration, + 8 Magic Armour. Target hero ignites Wax that he passes within 150 units of, for the duration of the ability.
Searing Curse :: 8 Health degeneration (to a minimum of 0), - 8 Magic Armour. If Waxed!, removed Waxed! and apply Hot Hot Hot! as per the Wax Attack! ability (for the remaining duration plus 2 seconds).

Level 3:

Holy Flames :: 12 Health regeneration, + 12 Magic Armour. Target hero ignites Wax that he passes within 200 units of, for the duration of the ability.

Changelog v1.0.0.9 (08/05/2013):

Nerfed base attack by 2 points at upper and lower limits.
Increased attack range by 50.

Nerfed Physical Armour reduction on Q, reducing Level 4 manacost by 20.
Reworked W to be an Attack Modifier, removed defunct AoE attack. Increased damage per second, reduced duration, added a minor cooldown and manacost.
Removed Physical armour reduction for enemy heroes on R.

Cleaned up a ton of formatting and added simply stuff like bold, underline, italics, etc.
Remembered how retarded DREAM's edit/save process was.

if burning soul didn't depend on attacks (i.e. short cd insta cast animation) then he'd be a really cool suicide hero

lots of utility in a physical stun psuedo blink, the rest of the hero simply put.... looks hella fun

useless and under powered.

Based on his Role Notes, he'd be powerful w/ Ra.
Wax Attack seems to be Chipper-esque. I like.
So, for burning soul, it functions like a Runed Axe?
His Leap might be a bit too fast. I'd set it to 522.
I think his ult is good, however it may be a tad underpowered.
