I thought I’d give the Latest Sketch a try! It’s a neat theme and it reminded me of this “original” League idea I had for a character named “Damien”. Damien’s a child like Annie and is the nephew of Darius. Damien’s supposed to be a servant/conduit of Death (reaper) and his abilities reflect it’s aspects (as well as subtle references to Darius). His Hair looks kinda like that characters from Don’t Starve haha.
For this ability, I imagined it being the [W] called “Deaths Grasp”. It scatters champions then reels them back in with a “soul thread”. The thread is a theme I’ve seen associated with death/fate. The red ring is supposed to warn you after the hands charges, otherwise it telegraphs too early and is easy to avoid.
[DEATH’S GRASP - W]
Death’s hand is summoned. After a short delay Death’s hand strikes the ground, scattering nearby targets, applying a tether and knocking the central target(s) airborne. After 1 second, tethered targets are pulled back in and slowed by 35% for 1.5 seconds. Applies Death’s Mark.
Deaths Mark - Applies a mark that deals 3 true damage per second for 6 seconds. Damien Heals for 1.5% of his maximum health when consumed.
I’m working out the value since it looks like a-lots going on (wind/hand/debris). I tried using Purple, but it didn’t feel as powerful. I decided to go with Yorick’s palette for the spectral theme.
What do you think?
