VERSION ONE

Lore:
Unnamed, as of yet. Sort-of traditional harpy mythos; nests in the mountains/thick woodland. Vicious, filthy, uncouth. Don't know, perhaps she has been killing too many unwary travellers.

Passive: Defoul
- A DoT sort of thing due to her dirty claws, upon attack, one stack of Defoul is applied.

Q: Fury Swipe
- An on-hit ability that immediately applies 5 stacks of Defoul, as well as some bonus damage.

W: Gale
- A cone spell that blinds the victim(s) for a short time with debris-flying wind.

E: Ascend
- Somewhat like Ashe's Hawkshot. The Harpie flies into the air and gains an increased vision area for the duration of the spell. Her attack speed and movement speed are increased.

R: Take Flight
- The Harpie flies (untargetable) into the air and swoops down onto a victim. She then can snatch the victim into the air and carry them a short distance. During this time, both are suppressed (ie, Quicksilver can remove this ability, but not Cleanse).


// as input comes in, I'll change aspects until this champion is "right". Hope you guys like the idea.

I imagined the whole thing in my head quite nicely. Awesome champion concept :3

E: Ascend
I'd imagine it allows you to see over walls?

R: Take Flight
Would need more detail on the ult to gauge its effectiveness. Range mainly, and both being suppressed? If it acted like Skarner's ult, it would make more sense to me.

Later thoughts:
  • Scaling on the attacks.
  • Dat lore.

That's all for now from me.

Maybe, the ult should be a mix between syndra's W and skarners ult ;).

Coffee: I'll draw up some concept art tomorrow after school. But I'm thinking bird legs, wings for arms, torso and head human; bipedal.

Xeronn: Yup, Ascend will allow vision over close walls, and *maybe* in brush, gottah think of it that's balanced or not.

Take Flight: Yes, like Skarner's ult. I'm stupid. By "suppressed" I mean both can't do anything... except she can move, so it's not really "nothing". Yes, it's more like Skarner's ult, thanks, I'll make that more clear.

Scaling: Will do some research into DoTs and see what's "fair" and go from there.

Lore: luls. I'll write more for it tomorrow. Just wanted to get the idea in the air, get some feedback :3

I would expect stuff like this to go to Champion & Item Ideas :D

Still a cool concept though.

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

In regards to Take Flight, being able to see in brush would be a bit unfair imo.

I'll help you if you wanna do some calculations on the abilities later and maybe the lore when you're not busy ^^~

What exactly is the point of Defoul?

imo something should happen or you should be able to do something based on # of stacks.

Interesting idea, but her ultimate (IMO) would be broken. Considering she becomes un-targetable for the duration of the ability it breaks the mold of all previous suppression based abilities. In that there is absolutely no risk for the reward. Skarner's ultimate is short ranged so he has to be on top of the enemy to use it, even after using it he is somewhat exposed. Warwick has a long range, but he is immobilized and brought directly to the target. Malzahar is medium ranged and is immobilized for the duration. Giving her the ability to pick up and "peace out" with an enemy carry while her team can jut nuke them without issue is a problem. Sure she is "suppressed" too (though it would technically be a silence because she can't use abilities but can move). It isn't enough "risk" to balance the reward.

Defoul Passive("Corrupted Claws" for the sake of alliteration): Seems interesting, depends if it scales AP/AD or if it merely scales with level. This ability is fine.

Fury Swipe: Being able to apply 5 stacks AND deal bonus damage is OP. Number of stacks should scale with ranking (as well as the bonus damage) OR you make it apply 1 stack at all levels, give it a ~3 second CD and make the bonus damage WHEN your target hits 5 stacks of "Defoul". That way you have a bit more of a balance and don't have to make "Defoul" incredibly weak to balance 5 stacks being applied immediately. Other ideas would be basic attacks apply "Defoul" and "Fury Swipe" deals X damage+%AD or AP and bonus damage of Z+%AP or AD per stack of "Defoul" on a target.

Gale: Seems alright, but blinds are a bit of a taboo...Seeing as there are like 2 champs that apply it now, Teemo (Single target) Heimerdinger (AoE with his grenade), I believe that's it, where Corki used to apply it too.

And you already know what I think of the ultimate. Interesting stuff all around ^_^
