Idle Champions: Greengrass 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The start of spring is traditionally marked by a day of peace and rejoicing, featuring beautiful displays of flowers in celebration of Lathander, God of Spring and The Morninglord. Unfortunately for the town of Triboar on the Sword Coast, their celebrations are interrupted by the arrival of a githyanki raiding party... That's right, it's time for the Greengrass Y2 event!

Greengrass 2 runs until Monday, April 22nd, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT. Our latest Year Two Event introduces Aila, the Storm Herald Barbarian and Hero of Aerois. It also brings back Nrakk, the Githzerai Monk!

New Champion: Aila

    Aila was found and raised by a clan of wild elves, but never truly felt like she belonged. The tartan that was found with her is the only clue she has to her lost elven roots. Aila is stubborn and proud. Whenever anyone questions her past, she simply states 'I'm a delight!'. However, her smirk holds a lifetime of anger & questions that she's held close to her heart.
Aila is a path of the Storm Herald Barbarian, able to Tank and Support in formations. She wields the primal power of storms to damage, stun, and weaken enemies.

When you want to add Aila to your formation, you can swap her with Makos (Slot 9). For more information about our latest Champion, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Aila dev blog!

Returning Champion: Nrakk

    Having watched your party's progress for many years from Limbo, the Great Githzerai, Zaerith Menyar-Ag-Gith, has dispatched Nrakk to join your party on the Material Plane. Though his true motivations are unknown, Nrakk is a Way of the Kensei monk whose weapon of choice is a Naginata, making him a true force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Reserved and aloof, Nrakk sometimes has a hard time interacting with those he sees as his lessers, but he nevertheless seems committed to the party's cause.
Nrakk is a methodical Githzerai DPS Champion. His methodical approach to DPS has him able to deal AoE damage, stun, and bonus damage to single targets. When you want to add Nrakk to your party, you can swap him with Delina or Hitch (Slot 8).

Year Two Variants

  • Pixie Machinations — A pixie riding an intellect devourer (like you do) arrives in every area. When it appears, a random Champion is stunned until the pixie is destroyed.

  • Starve Them Out — Only champions with INT 12 or less can be used. A giant intellect devourer with 200 armor-based HP arrives in each area. While it is alive, all other monsters are immune to damage. For each collective point of intellect BELOW 12 in your formation, the giant intellect devourer's armor is reduced by 10, to a minimum of 10 armor-based hits. For example. If you have Bruenor in your formation, his 8 INT (4 less than 12) will reduce the giant intellect devourer's health by 40 (4x10).

  • Ride the Storm — Aila starts in your formation. Aila's Storm Aura hits two enemies with each strike. Only enemies who are either Primed or Electrified by Aila can be damaged.

Year One Variants

  • Whispers — The Elder Brain slowly drives your Champions mad. Whenever a Champion lands a killing blow, they gain 5–10 stacks of a "Whispers" debuff. When they reach 100+ stacks, they are stunned for 15 seconds.

  • Flower Power — Sentient flower enemies spawn at random in non-boss areas. When killed, they imbue the champion who killed them with a random power, which can be good or bad.

  • Unlikely Allies — Two Githzerai monks take up slots in the formation. Each increases the DPS of Nrakk by 400% as long as he is adjacent to them, stacking multiplicatively.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Aila 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Her eyes narrow. The corner of her lips curl up into a smile so slight, it's barely noticeable. "What did you say?" She asks stepping forward.

Her hand instinctively reaches to her warhammer. The air around us electrifies instantly. "Here we go again," I say as I reach for my weapons.

"What?" She turns around, smirking openly now. "I'm a delight!" She laughs as her barbarian rage takes over and she jumps into the fray; lightning coursing through her Warhammer, the Howling Gale.

Aila was created by Katie Morrison, a member of The High Rollers D&D crew, based in the UK. The High Rollers stream each week at the High Rollers Twitch page at 5PM BST, or noon Eastern every Sunday. You can also follow thair adventures on Youtube! For more info on Aila, the High Rollers crew, and the homebrew world of Aerois created by professional dungeon master Mark Hulmes, check out the High Rollers Aerois wiki.

Aila is a path of the Storm Herald Barbarian, able to Tank and Support in formations. She wields the primal power of storms to damage, stun, and weaken enemies. When you want to add Aila to your formation, you can swap her with Makos (Slot 9).

Aila's Story

Aila was found in the lowlands of Aerois by the wild elf Airdeith clan. While she is also a wild elf, she hails from a long lost clan. The only clue she has to her past is the tartan that was found with her.

When she grew older she began to realize that she possessed powers that most others didn't. When angered, her fingertips would produce lightning. She cultivated the strength of her ancestors, becoming the Barbarian that now travels with the Heroes of Aerois. She is stubborn, proud, and often very sarcastic.

Wild elves in Aerois typically have Celtic and Viking themes which inspired Katie to bring her own Scottish roots into her character. The scrap of clan tartan became an important item and Aila's story was formed around it. The name Aila means "from the strong place" in Scottish Gaelic. A fitting name for a barbarian!

The Art of Aila

Aila's portrait and model were drawn by Alexis Theroux. Her equipment was drawn by Kat Crane! As always, they've done an amazing job and we hope all of you enjoy their efforts on Aila!

Basic Attack

Aila attacks the nearest enemy with her warhammer, the Howling Gale, knocking them back slighlty with the gust cantrip.

Formation Abilities

Before we get into her abilities, I want to talk about two statuses she inflicts on enemies: Primed and Electrified. Multiple formation abilities refer to both Primed and Electrified enemies. Enemies become Primed from Aila's Storm Aura. They become Electrified from her Storm Soul & Raging Storm abilities. Primed enemies take more damage from all Champions. Electrified enemies take EVEN MORE damage!


Primed enemies are shown visually by a small lightning ball overlay on their model.
Electrified enemies are shown visually by a wreath of lightning around them.

  • Storm Aura — Every 4 seconds a random enemy approaching the formation is Primed. Primed enemies take 50% more damage from all Champions.

  • Heart of the Storm — Increases the health of all Champions by 25% of Aila's max health.

  • Storm Soul — When Aila attacks a Primed enemy, they are stunned for 2 seconds and they become Electrified, increasing the damage they take from all Champions by a much larger amount for EACH Electrified enemy on screen!

  • Raging Storm — When Aila attacks an Electrified enemy, all nearby Primed enemies become Electrified and then all nearby Electrified enemies are stunned for .5 seconds.

  • Shielding Storm — When an Electrified enemy attacks Aila, she gains temporary HP at 10% of her max health for each Electrified enemy on screen.

Specializations

  • Stormcaller — Reduces the cooldown on Aila's Storm Aura by 2 seconds. Use this if you want to get more enemies Primed quicker!

  • Stormbreaker — Increases Aila's Storm Soul stun by 2 seconds and increase the length of Aila's Raging Storm stun by .5 seconds. Use this if you need to hold enemies back longer, allowing your DPS Champions time to clear them out!

Ultimate Attack

    Storm Herald — Aila lifts her Warhammer high into the sky, calling the lightning and unleashing the power of her ancestors. Once her warhammer is charged with lightning, she unleashes it across all enemies, damaging and stunning them for 5 seconds. It deals 10% more damage for each Electrified Enemy on screen.

Equipment


  • Furs of the Stormbringer — As a barbarian of the lowlands, she's been raised to hunt. "Take what you can and leave nothing behind; it's the way of my people."

  • Mr Snappy the Trap — Mr Snappy is always around if you need a quick meal.

  • The Howling Gale — The warhammer given to her by the Airdeith, her adoptive clan.

  • Heritage Tartan — She was found and raised by the Airdeith clan. The tartan she carries is the only clue to her past.

  • Airdeith Clan Boots — "Just because I'm a barbarian, doesn't mean I run around with bare feet!"

  • Belt of the Storms — Why have a simple belt when you can be awesome instead?
