Once again, good guy, dark powers. MARVEL AT THE SIGHT! MARVEL I SAY!
Level 1 skill - Black Hole Sun
- Active: Canus creates a ward-like summon at target location. Every few seconds, enemies within X range of it are blinded for Y seconds. If Canus is within 500/550/600/650/700 range of the summon he becomes invisible. If Canus is within 300/275/250/225/200 range of the summon he is visible again.
Lasts Z seconds.
Level 1 skill - Flux
- Active â€“ Over a few seconds, a ring of darkness forms a ways out from where Canus was standing when the spell was cast. After it is fully formed it closes in on itself. Enemies touched by the ring as it closes take X damage and are maimed for Y seconds.
Level 1 skill - Malady
- Active/Passive â€“ While active, when Canus attacks an enemy below X% health, he has a Y% chance of inflicting a random condition for Z seconds. If the enemy is blind or maimed this chance doubles.
Level 6 Ultimate - Penumbra
- Active â€“ Canus calls down a beam of darkness. The beam will touch down on the nearest Black Hole Sun. If none are present it will touch down on Canus. The beam will actively seek out any Black Hole Suns. If there are none it will follow Canus around. Enemies in the beam take X damage/second and their blind and maim status extends for Y seconds/second. Penumbra will destroy Black Hole Suns it touches.
Lasts Z seconds.
Poppy Pro Tips:
The more I thought about the invisibility on BHS, the more I liked it. It took some thought too; I had to yell at myself for an earlier version which was practically a Sandstorm clone.
Flux forms at the point where Canus is standing, but stays stationary(doesn't follow him if he moves). I'd figure it would have something like a 300-400 diameter. However, it may be a bit too similar to Schism.
The idea with Penumbra is a bit of flexibility, with room for creative use. Yes you could just activate it and chase someone, or you could lay paths for it to travel.
The theme I was going for is to trap and trick enemies into going where you want them to, or to shoo them away from combat altogether. Like if they don't feel like fighting you while you're invisible, they can bait Canus to the BHS to see him but then get blinded for it.
Thanks to ShadowRain for his (better) version of Malady.
