Sprites Hallowed Expansion!

Yuyutsu

Dungeon Spirit
Yuyutsu here, guys! And this time, I present to you, not a minibiome, but the expansion of an existing biome. Presenting:

kdcROYP.png

Goblin_Peon (5) (3).png
Hallowed Expansion
Goblin_Peon (5).png

I think the Hallow gets too much flak. I mean, it has the exact same amount of content as the two Evil Biomes in Hardmode (new enemies, an underground material, Souls, and a couple weapons here and there). However, the problem lies there. Playing through the game, the Evil Biome is integral in Prehardmode. I mean, it has a Boss, an ore, a toolset, completely wicked world generation, Altars, and a whole host of crazy content! The Hallow should have a similar amount of content (though not that much, so as not to oversaturate early Hardmode).

However, I feel that the Hallow could serve as a wonderful starting point to Hardmode. I dislike early Hardmode due to the limited options against the extremely frustrating power gap, and the monotony of mining ores and getting souls. The Hallow could introduce the player to new, powerful weapons and armor and prepare them for the other difficulties in Hardmode. I promise it wouldn't be any less challenging, though. The Hallow should stand out from the Evil Biomes, and get its spotlight. After all, it doesn't even have an alternate, though perhaps I can work on that soon ;).

This suggestion is split into two distinct sections: Underground Expansion, and a new Boss: The Harmonizer. Let's check them out!

Underground Expansion
It's no secret that the Underground gets really important in Hardmode. Three (six) new ores are found there, and Souls, which are integral to gameplay. However, aside from quickly mining ores to get often mediocre weapons and armor, and quickly rushing to the next tier of gear, there isn't much reward to slogging away down there. In fact, it eventually gets pretty monotonous down there. Let's fix that by adding a few new challenges and rewards to the Underground Hallow!

New NPCs:
This suggestion adds 2 new Enemies and 1 new Critter to the Underground Hallow.

New Boss:
As I said earlier, this Suggestion adds a new boss to the Hallowed Biome! Get ready for The Harmonizer, who views you as a threat to balance since, well, you keep killing everything. This boss is meant to be fought before the Mechanical Bosses as an introduction to Hardmode.
Paladin_2_1_1.png

The Harmonizer
Tranquil Orb - Summoning Item
Can be used in the Hallow (surface) at any time.

Soul_of_Flight.gif

Mythril_Anvil.png
@ any Hardmode Anvil

18000 HP / 50/45 Damage (Contact, Projectiles) / 100% Knockback Resist / 30 Defense / Inflicts Confused (25%) for 6 seconds

Phase 1 (Above 50% HP):
- Floats above the player, shooting 2-4 Bouncing Purple Orbs (like the Sojourner) every 9/7 seconds.

- Spawns 1-2 Pixies every 9/8 seconds.

- Occasionally, The Harmonizer stands still, flapping its wings quickly and blowing all players back (like the Mighty Wind debuff, but much faster). Any player that hits a tile 'wall' takes contact damage akin to Horizontal Fall Damage. During the 'Winds' attack, The Harmonizer Reflects all projectiles.
Expert AI: After the 'Winds' attack, the Harmonizer will quickly dash downward and impact the ground, creating a shockwave of crystal shards.

- Upon being close to Phase 2 (9000 HP < HP < 12000/13000 HP), the Harmonizer surrounds itself in Golden orbs that constantly rotate, dealing contact damage. It now stops spawning enemies, and still shoots Purple Orbs, and occasionally charges at the player.

Phase 2 (Below 50% Health):
Paladin_2 (7).png

70/50 Damage (Contact/ Orbs) / 100% Knockback Resist / 25 Defense / Inflicts Broken Armor (50%) for 20 seconds

Wings and all aperture fall off, leaving The Harmonizer to drop to the ground. The Harmonizer will perform one of two attacks constantly:
1. Rushing at the player at extreme speeds, rolling across water or any vertical tiles unhindered.
Expert AI: Rushes faster, leaves behind a trail of damaging crystal shards in its wake.
2. Rapidly Jumping toward the player, releasing shockwaves of Crystal Shards whenever it makes contact toward the ground. If the Player surrounds themselves in tiles (a box), The Harmonizer defaults to this AI and constantly jumps above the player, releasing shards.

If the Player spends more than 10 seconds in the air, evading The Harmonizer, it will make quick dashes into the air in short succession, like so.

Switches between these AIs more rapidly as it approaches death, and surrounds itself in Golden Orbs, like Phase 1.

Drops
Paladin_2 (6) (1).png
Paladin_2 (8).png

Orb of Harmony (33%)
0 Damage / Fast Speed / Light Pet
Summons an Orb of Harmony that functions as a Light Pet, but also gives the player a Passive Regen of 2 HP/s if the player is under half health.

Tranquility (33%)
40 Magic Damage / Fast Speed / 4% Crit Chance / 2 Knockback / 10 Mana
Surrounds the Player in 4 Rotating, Golden Orbs that deal damage. Last for 6 seconds, only 4 can be active at once.

Lightslicer (33%)

37 Melee Damage / Fast Speed / 9% Crit Chance / 4 Knockback
Autoswing. May occasionally shoot a bouncing Purple Bolt.

The Harmonizer Mask (10%)
Equipable- Vanity

Harmonizer Trophy (10%)
Placeable.

Discordant Shard (40%)
Material.

Paladin_2 (9).png

Chaos Ball - Expert
Equippable (in Mount Slot). Transforms the player into a speedy Chaos Ball. The Ball moves extremely quickly (70mph) and can roll on any vertical or horizontal tiles, but the player cannot use items. Hitting enemies at Max Speed deals contact damage to the enemy. Here's an example.

Hope you guys like the suggestion! I wish I could make a mockup, but I don't have my main computer to code with. That aside, thoughts? Comments? Questions? Concerns? I cannot tell you how much taking your time out to talk to me about my ideas means. I hope you enjoyed, and have a swell morning/afternoon/evening!

This is an extremely well-executed idea, and the illustrations are breathtaking. Great job!

I have a few nitpicks here and there, but this is mainly to get the discussion going, not because I think they'll be a genuine problem in the long run.

Do the projectiles from the Crystal Harbinger spawn around the stricken enemy in a circle, or do they shoot out from the point of contact? I'm a little worried because its attack pattern may be too similar to the Crystal Serpent's.

The secondary effects of the Crystal Bow and Crystal Dagger should have higher chance to activate, to make them more consistent. Also, Crystal Shards are much easier to gather than Souls of Light, so some crafting recipes (particularly the Crystal Dagger's) could be adjusted. At this point, the Crystal Dagger's main competition is the Blowgun with Crystal Darts, which are crafted by hand using only Crystal Shards. The Crystal Dagger would be more tempting to use if it did not require Souls of Light or an upgraded Anvil to craft.

Crystal Armor's set bonus overlaps with the effect of the throwing weapon it's intended to be used with. I would suggest altering it to create some sort of synergy, which would make it much more tempting to use.

Orb of Discord: when I saw the name, I thought it was going to be a way of making the Rod of Discord craftable. Turned out to be a sort of Golden Shower counterpart instead! I love the idea of a support weapon giving a percentage-based damage increase, so I'm not disappointed at all. But I do think a less frustrating method of obtaining the Rod of Discord could fit somewhere into this suggestion. Also, I don't think limiting the number of affected enemies to 2 is necessary considering that the player only has a 6 second window to take advantage of the debuff.

Orb of Harmony: well, to put it in perspective, the Band of Regeneration only grants 0.5 HP per second. The idea of a light pet providing combat bonuses is one I can live with, but a value as high as 4 HP/sec should probably have some condition attached to it.

How is The Harmonizer summoned? The main reason why I'm asking is because it sounds like fighting this boss underground could potentially be very, very difficult due to mobility restrictions. Also, will there be any AI differences in Expert mode, and perhaps an Expert mode-exclusive item?​

Minor details aside, this is a very impressive thread, and I'll be sticking around for a while to keep it active and develop these ideas to be the best they can be. Looking forward to working with you!

Really well done. I also think that as well because who could forget to expand that Biome when you need ideas for enemies, items, etc. Keep it up my amazing dude :D

Thank you so much for the extensive feedback! You've brought some great points that I had to incorporate into the thread.

The Crystal Harbinger spawns projectiles in a circle around the stricken enemy, not from the enemy itself. I also had the same issue while creating the item, so I think the circular pattern differentiates it from the Crystal Serpent.

I've modified the chances for the Bow and Dagger, and changed the recipes for the items, particularly the Dagger. You were right about the differences in obtainability (is that a word?), especially since the enemies introduced in this suggestion make it easier to get crystal shards. The Crystal Armor Set Bonus has also been changed.

Removed the 2 enemy cap for the Orb of Discord, and also introduced a new item to be involved in the crafting of the Rod of Discord! Please let me know if it's still too easy/hard, I'm not very good at balancing stuff :p

The Orb of Harmony has been nerfed. It now has a lower Hp/s, but also only works under half health. Still a nifty light pet, though!

I can't believe I forgot Summoning and Expert items for The Harmonizer. it's meant to be fought on the Hallow Surface. Thank you for reminding me! I've written in some Expert AI in this color. I've also introduced a Summoning and Expert exclusive item.

The Crystal Harbinger spawns projectiles in a circle around the stricken enemy, not from the enemy itself.
How will this interaction change if the enemy is large? Perhaps the projectiles could spawn in from a set distance and close in on its target? That way it will still be more effective against larger enemies, but won't be overwhelmingly powerful if its target moves quickly.

I noticed that the Orb of Discord has a relatively generous drop rate. Which I don't mind, but it would make sense to introduce consumable recipes for items that are highly renewable. So I would propose renaming the magic weapon that inflicts Chaos Blaze, and turning the Orb of Discord into a basic crafting ingredient. Then we could brainstorm more uses for the Orb of Discord, such as functional furniture items (this seems about right considering that it's neither especially common nor especially rare).

Of course the new Orb of Discord would still be used for crafting the new magic weapon, Rod of Discord, and Tranquil Orb (probably). let me know what you think.

The way it'd work (from a coding perspective) is that it'd always be x pixels away from any enemy, so it'd always end up encircling a foe, and then close in.

I wouldn't want to change the Orb of Discord due to it being a reference to one of my favorite games currently: Overwatch (as is the Tranquil Orb). perhaps we could come up with some other drops that lead to Furniture.

I'd say that the Crystal Shards could make some unique furniture sets, maybe mixing them with Discordant Shards could make some pretty awesome shard furniture. Just an idea.

Excellent sprites by the way!
