You could make the rune of regeneration 100% heal, other than that, rune of berserking should also give dmg.

100% is too much because these runes would be on some extremly healthy units like dwarven defender or mammonth rider as well. So 50% only.

As for +damage for rune of berserking it can be too powerful on some specific units so also no.

These for all units? If so then no, given to specific units each ruin, fine.

If given to all units then you end up with hundreds of warmages and these would also mean you won't have to get any other units other then the 2 turn units. Rune mage could use them so we can implement him already.

For most units. Not for all though. Also they must be researched firstly EACH.

47 turns to research all runes.

Which units? Some of these are a little on the cheap side. If the 50% regen is for a lot of units then you won't need the healers any more. Also dwarves should be more focused on their buildings and equipment, not magical ruins to enhance their combat efficiency further. Or else they end up taking orcs roll as powerhouses and this would end up being another orc race spinnoff.

Read carefully:
Rune of life has 8 turns cooldown. 8 turns..
Same with other runes.
Some runes also will be acsessable for only melee units - rune of stone form, rune of thunderclap and rune of berserking as examples.

Also this is my concept – @Alexander82 wants runes as well and he has his own ideas.

Ya, well at the rate dwarves are going right now with these "ruins" they'll just end up being just like the orcs are if not worse and you might as well get rid of each races uniqueness because it was all given to another race. It's fine to leave all ruins to ruin casters but that's it. With the exception of a few that is like the ones that technically count as a blacksmith upgrade. Cost and cool will not change much either because dwarves have the best defences to keep enemies at bay long enough to get them, and cool doesn't matter if the units can just tank the hits with the upcoming blacksmith upgrades.

As I said berore, just make ruin casters for your ruins and this should be fine. No need to go overboard with giving everyone some ruins.

They ain't elves so no need to give them a healing ability each no matter the cost and cool.

They all ain't beserkers so no need for the beserking

I'd rather have the walls then an alternative infantry wall again ( :lol: )

Dwarves were supposed to be slow, not fast.

They ain't dragons but I don't necessarily see a problem with the fire one.

Thunder clap no, unless you want this over the fire weapon.

Ruin it exorcism seems a little much considering debuff spells aren't what they used to be. Despite its cool.

If all of these were given to a ruin caster their wouldn't be a problem.

Ruin casters... sounds like a plan.
I have rune casters in mind, yes.
But ruin casters sounds better - earthquake, meteor storm, star fall and armageddon spells :twisted: (especially last one - destroys EVERYTHING in large aoe range (deals 50000 damage) including caster :twisted: :twisted: ).

If to be more serious:
Runes definately will be on casters and researchable for nearly all dwarves. Alex already decided that.
Maybe some are a bit too powerful in my suggestion.

I will make second suggestion later with not so big advantages.

Seriously need it to face other races long term

Updated first post.
Changed costs, changed availible targets, changed stats given.
@Tankhead i hope you'll like this especially.
@General Brave when it will come to code in these abilities they must be self only, researchable and they must NOT return action for their usage unless ability gives additional actions. Also all effects from runes must be undisenchantable (but not effects from effects from runes like "armor breaking")

Very Interesting if combined with Blacksmith techs.
Can see some cool combinations being made now

So basically most dwarven units can caste runes on themselves without needing a separate dwarven rune caster unit?

Yes. But each rune will require separate tech to research it.

No more researchable runes for main body of dwarves. Also current names are good enough.

We could make some runes that a rune caster could put on buildings temporarily, e.g. Rune of abundance that only effects dwarves mines that works like vanishing +1. An idea.

Hm that good idea about runes for buildings.

It could make use of the rune smith still, I think it should be considered.

Updated rune of bezerking and here's more.

Btw, I think stone form should be just for shielder units because defence is kinda what they were meant to do.

I like the symbols' look but I wanted them to look actually like carved stones.
Can you put those images you made on a stone-like base?

I'll try, but I might have to delete the old ones maybe so I can post them.

Something like this?
We could use those others as tech images.

That's not bad. It is fine even if you make something front facing (so you don't need to bend the runes) You might also keep some of the golden outline this way.
About what to use as button and what as a tech I think should be seen in game.

When we'll implement those I'll check how they look in modded version

Well, the top ones are more like glyphs at the moment.

I'll see about the golden outlines.
