Hello everyone, My names Tom or Rielen. I am a Freelance Graphic Designer (still in school) and I hope to make Concept art as a career, However I am also Attending College as an Information System Technician. I have put a bit of thought into this shadow titan and hope you may like it. It goes off the whole balefire theme, maybe hopefully giving a bit more background on the presence of balefire itself. I was up at around 3am and the image below is just a VERY rough outline of what I had in mind. I did it in about 10-30 minutes so I apologize for how crude it is. Im unaware of how the shadow tower will work.

However if possible I would like it to be a multi person raid. The premise around his design is dependent on more than a few players (hopefully 6-10) as a platformer. Also I tried to keep things simple to where the game can handle it without adding too much stress on the coders. (i.e: No different phases, No special imploding effects or what have you.) I tried my best to make it as realistically doable.

Balefire is a type of magical energy unable to be tapped. However we see it in many animals\monsters\items embued with such energy. But what is balefire? well in a sense its a life source. Much like one of the many Earth mythologies of Prometheus and his ability to create life from clay and fire, The Balefire king is that, Prometheus. He creates life through the use of his darker magic, balefire. Some say he is older than Trovia itself, and that he was once a Diety who helped create trovia alongside the Trion Guardians. Although through the years, his beautiful flame changed, becoming something much more sinister, A force that adventurers everywhere have come together to finally stop. Will you be able to take down this powerful being and help stop his corruption?

I'm unsure of how health works in this game but these are only suggestions from what I feel in-game.
I hope to make his floor\level a platform level. Which he sits in a room of Balefire flames\Lava. and behind him can be seen what seems like a throne. He is stationary the entire fight. However he will use his abilities to swipe out at targets on platforms or make a platform unusable.

If Possible: I would have it so that each part of his body is a breakable\mini boss. Both arms and his chest\crystal. Once one is defeated it falls into the flames\lava below, But once defeated. Instead of the death animation mentioned later, He slumps forward and a portal opens at the top of his crown leading out or to another level or to a seperate plane of existence that holds the Chest (Would love to have a 2-3 chest balefire themed room though) that is breakable.

__________________________________________________ _____________________________________
Alight- Set a platform near the boss on fire, making the platform unusable. Has a 10% chance of setting a 2nd platform on fire that drains energy. Can use the Boss modification (http://trove.wikia.com/wiki/Boss_Modifications) Toxic with a different particle effect.
Swipe (if possible)- All plateforms will be in a staircase like design, his swipe ability will graze from the top platform near his side, all the way down to the middle lower platform infront of him. However only one side will be attacked at one time. Wich are dodgable but may use the Boss modification (http://trove.wikia.com/wiki/Boss_Modifications) hard hitter wich will knockback players and may knock them into the fire\lava if they do not jump to avoid it.
Shadow Mode- (Inspired by bahoin) His version of an ultimate. He becomes darker and temporarily becomes more stronger\armored. Using the cosmetic affect from the vampiric flask. He also attacks quicker. This ability last a max of 5-10secs, which is when all players should do their best to avoid his attacks and forget about attacking.

Other Suggestions by myself or others:
Plateform destroy - Destroys one platform temporarily much like Alight.
Pillar of fire - Pillars of fire\lava rise from below so that when players dodge they have to make sure not to hit a pillar.
Baelfire Leech - Heals from damage he causes for a short amount of time (1-5secs)
Nova boss modification - Releases green orbs in an area that deals damage to players.

Apperance (suggestion):
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ______________
Death Animation: Crown\Spikes fall off, His arm crystals fade to gray and he falls apart.
Noises: Grunting\Booming deep voice\Crackling fire sounds.
Apperance is mainly just his torso. The green crystals near his shoulder are meant to be where the arms pivot from. His actual torso floats slightly off his spine\base (see pictures for a better understanding)

More ruggish - Earthly looking - Has a ribcage like area with a Balefire Crystal inside.
More clean - Lantern like chest with Balefire crystal\rune inside, with a Crown.

Yeaaah, I realized that the forums is a bit of a underground place. It still has a community but it has a long way to go, and even more so for there to be people who actually comment or further yet give criticism. It definitely takes a certain type of person to go away from the actual game and actually just post or talk about the game in general :P. But thanks for you're feedback it means alot to me!
