Funny, a year ago I had an idea for a time assassin ultimate
It would be a toggle or held skill with like 100 charges, like statikk shiv but with a different recharge mechanic, and when toggled/held it would just increase your movespeed by a ridiculous amount and leave a flame trail behind you while depleting charges rapdily. Obviously, it would be unusable without charges.
The idea would be that he was sped up through time and he could both move insanely fast and the friction created from his speed would set the area ablaze.
To give an idea of how fast, he could travel from mid to top in about 1 second while toggled on
Of course, "trail behind you" doesn't really scream assassin, so either change that or put something on his kit that gets people to stand on it.
It would probably recharge at like, 1 unit a second and grant a bonus on kill. Maybe like 20. And ideally, charges would only be depleted while he was actually moving.
This ult would give him really insane mobility, giving him unprecedented teamfight/lane mobility and close to TF/Panth kind of global-esque ness. Of course, to compensate for this he'd have to be highly skill based, not giving him any innate defenses and forcing you to rely on mobility.
Of course, you could make this kit a lot more vanilla by giving him a "rewind" un-gap closer like reactivating leblanc's W and make his ult just a targeted global/semi-global thing. This would probably work better, I just think my idea is cool.
