I found myself thinking of a new type of ability that could be interesting to see implemented into the the game in some future exp. ("WoW - Ethereals Gone Wild" perhaps?)
The ability would function as a sort of movement impairing effect with a twist. It would be used as any other ability you cast on unfriendly target, but instead of rooting, slowing, dazing or whatever else, it would limit your area of movement within specific confines. Be that a point on the ground or perhaps even something unstationary, like a player. Say, the ability may look something like this in practice:
The targeted enemy becomes leashed to you, and will be unable to move further than 6 yards away from your location for x amount of seconds"
In this implimentation the targeted enemy would be forced to be 6 yards or less away from you, regardless of where you moved. Obviously there would be kinks to iron out, such as what happens to a cast the enemy was performing while suddenly being "dragged" along the ground etc.
Now before you go "amagad my class needs buffing trollololol" i'm only calling the ability Leash, because i've been thinking about it from a hunter perspective. It may just as well be implemented for any other class. Say for warlocks the ability could be called "Prison of the Mind", where the target is forced to stay within 6 yards of a given location. (perhaps even with the ability to port them to the casting locks portal thingo?)
Dunno, the possiblities are numerous imo.
I'd like some thoughts on how this ability could be improved, potential naming to fit specific classes and also perhaps a discussion on how this ability could be used in existing comps and whatnot :)
Keep it clean, don't get banned. If you don't like the thread, feel free to move along, but do so without spoiling the fun for whomever might want to discuss this.
Hunter, Everyone of Boulderfist-eu
I posted the above thread a loooong time ago, and what I describe seems uncannily similar to the new level 90 hunter ability (Binding Shot). To the best of my knowledge, at the time of writing the aforementioned post, no information had yet been leaked about hunter level 90 abilities, and this leads me to cautiously hope, or at least speculate that my post may have inspired somebody.
Either that, or an extremely lucky call?
Uhm, is it possible for the Blues to confirm or debunk whether the above post had anything at all to do with the inspiration going into the new hunter ability?
Purely out of curiosity :D
Hunter, Everyone of Boulderfist-eu
Let me start off saying that I think your original post was great,
but that is not why I post now.
I have no knowledge regarding the future hunter abilities what so ever.
But I just realized something ...
You chose to start off with "Hello Internet", because if you said "Hello Everyone", you would be talking to yourself?
Amirite? huh? huuh?

Haha, yup, you got it:P
My name has been the cause of many a confusion in-game.
Suffice to say, in the immortal words of deadlybossmods: "Anub'arak persues Everone".. ..Queue panic! xD

Haha, I could imagine.
That is just a +1 name... Wish there was a way to rate stuff like that. :-(
Or, "Everyone won [Staff of awesomesauce]"
- "Everyone received [Staff of awesomesauce]"
- Wut? :O
