Really great concept, however I would think to have the Efflorescence grow at Cenarius's location rather than the target's or perhaps have Living Seed as an additional Ability given at Level 1 (like Xul's Bone Armor) and have two effects for Efflorescence; damaging Abilities sprout growth under targets hit while Basic Attacks sprouts growth under Cenarius.

Thanks for the feedback. I see what you mean. Efflorescence could have a 2 part to it, Basic Attack spawn the field under the target while you can activate Efflorescence to spawn the field under Cenarius instead and have Living Seed (as you said) as a additional Level 1 Ability :D

really nice concept! i like the global presence that LIVING SEED gives! i would like to suggest some improvements:
[Z] GROVEWALK- add a speed bonus for limited time after you teleport (lets say 20% for 10 seconds). having no regular mount or any passive speed buff is a bit to restrictive with a 75 cd teleport.
[D] EFFLORESCENCE- change to work every time you damage an enemy with ability. working only on the 4th ability with his cd is too weak, and it needs to hit in order to prevent you from throwing random abilities in order to heal.
[D] DEFENDER OF THE EMERALD DREAM- dosnt feel that impactfull and has relatively low cd. think of similar abilities like dragonform- large buff with great cd.
or change it completely- make it work with the field of flora, active to make the field damage or debuff enemies and refresh the duration. and maybe make the all special effects the abilities have (while DEFENDER OF THE EMERALD DREAM) work passively if cast on field of flora.

thank you :D
Did some changes, removed Defender of the Emerald Dream, didn't know what I wanted to do with it, maybe will introduce it again when I get something good, but for now, it's not part of the kit.
I see what you mean with Efflorescence, I lowered the cooldowns and added a Talent that allow a little more control over the effect of Efflorescence. Grovewalker gained a passive effect, increasing he's move speed while he's not seen by enemies.
Will continue working on changing things up, some of the Talent I feel is a little dull, but for now I don't have any ideas of how I want them to be.
Thank you for the feedback :D
