    ? Wizard?- possibility

    Post  Derek S on Tue Jul 15, 2014 3:18 am

    One of the wizards or such (we have a figure for) I want to have the ability to steal special powers or special attacks from the opponent.  Maybe start the game with 2 copy power markers, instead of moving and attacking you may place a mimic power marker on an opponents unique hero, for the duration of the game, ? can utilize that power.  

    Any thoughts if this should be pursued?  Too much?

    Would it be just one special power on the chosen army card that they would copy, or all powers?

    Probably too powerful.

    It would be difficult to determine the point cost for this Wizard. If your opponent has Braxas that they invested 210 points and you get to copy that special power for the duration of the game but you only spent 150 points on the Wizard it is a little unbalanced. Maybe just a temporary usage?

    There is also the problem of imagining how a Wizard is copying something like Wrist Rocket special attacks by using magic.

    The intent was to be one power from a card. I had thought it a little awkward imagining Braxas acid breath as well. Maybe go with Human opponents power, although that still might be tough to cost. Would the fun/counter factor be worth pursuing? I can imagine a magician/wizard that steals from someone, but I might have to think about this for a bit.

    Maybe Unique Heroes are too strong in the mind to have their powers copied by this wizard.

    Perhaps you could consider copying a power on a common figure? The swing in points wouldn't be nearly as great.
