  • [Crystal Maiden] Several fixes and additions to her ability & modifier tooltips

    Crystal Nova:
    * New ALT note: Grants 900 radius ground vision for 6 seconds

    * Description says that it lasts longer on creeps on level 6 or lower, which is wrong (lasts longer on any non-ancient creep)
    * Note about blink abilities uses "affects" wrong (should be "effects")
    * The total damage traits do not consider duration increasing talents
    * The duration talent bonus is not added to the creep duration in the tooltip (duration does get increased though)
    * New ALT note: Provides True Sight over the target
    * New ALT note: Interrupts the target on cast

    Arcane Aura:
    * The second ALT note is completely irrelevant now, since the regen mechanic changes, should be fully removed
    * First ALT note is not really needed either (all sources of mana regen stack), but if you want to keep it, remove the "flat" part from it
    * The manacost/manaloss reduction talent should clarify with a description that it is part of Arcane Aura, and not a separate aura

    Freezing Field:
    * Description is inaccurate about the slow, implies that the explosions apply it, which is wrong
    * Doesn't mention the explosion spawn radius
    * Doesn't mention the Scepter Frostbite delay in the traits (only hardcoded in aghs description)

    All other changes I made are small cosmetic changes.

Wellsprings and mountain rivers froze in moments if she stopped to rest nearby; ripening crops were bitten by frost, and fruiting orchards turned to mazes of ice and came crashing down, spoiled. When their exasperated parents packed Lina off to the equator, Rylai found herself banished to the cold northern realm of Icewrack, where she was taken in by an Ice Wizard who had carved himself a hermitage at the crown of the Blueheart Glacier. After long study, the wizard pronounced her ready for solitary practice and left her to take his place, descending into the glacier to hibernate for a thousand years. Her mastery of the Frozen Arts has only deepened since that time, and now her skills are unmatched."

    "Cannot blink, move or attack. Taking over time"? I think there's a word missing there.

    Thanks a ton for your work though. You're doing an awesome job for the community.
