Y is greater if Caliga is closer to the target, inverse if Caliga is away from the target.

Where Y is the amount of conditions the target is suffering. Capped at X times.

Here's my submission based on the one sentence description that Dusk gave me (link) which I found helpful since I don't play a lot of DoE. Which means that this hero can seem really close to other DoE heroes by chance and if that happens my bad.
So we got a level one Caliga with three abilities that he/she will most likely choose Windshredder or Damnation.
Windshredder would be good to help run away (but that just seems to waste the secondary effect) or to aid the killing of crowds and single targets with the constant application of Ruin to enemies around Caliga. Where Damnation can be the harassment/annoyance skill, harass since it deals damage and mute, annoying because you can mute someone for a second because you weren't close enough.
I don't know how but I got them to synergy-ize (well I see it as synergy) cause you can close in and afflict ruin with Windshredder and make better use of Damnation by casting it close up. Bleh chuck in Tombreaver and you get two hits of your Agility in it.
Ok for Tombreaver I'm going to explain why I underlined certain parts. The Agility underline was because I do remember that stats don't really interact with skills in DoE. If so I have an idea what to replace that with normal attacks instead of Agility damage. And the neat thing is that if he has a partner who can afflict other conditions he's just going to slice them up faster ^^.
Now what I had trouble with was to make an ultimate worth learning... So this is the best I can come up with (basing the skill slightly on the meaning of the word and what others had done with Caliga and the ethereal status). The point of this skill is to help Caliga chase, reach, or find a target easily no matter the situation as long as he is not getting nuked with spells.
And that's my submission, looking forward to the critique ^^.
