Howdy-hey, guys & gals! Your friendly neighborhood Aureline here.
I was thinking the other day what my kit would look like if I, myself, as a human, were suddenly and inexplicably gifted with an array of magical powers and told to fight in the League.
Anyone who's played with me knows I don't handle getting harrassed well. Lord help you if you're in a Skype call with me while I'm laning against a Yorick - the result is a series of plaintive, desperate wails for a gank.
Like, I hate getting my space invaded. It's just rude. I'm okay in other lanes, but it's definitely a cause of grief in my LoL life. Knowing this, I'm pretty damn sure my kit would be based around the following concept:
WAT R U DOING
So, yeah. The kit is built around being freakin' skittish, haha.
Riot, I present to you ..
Aureline, the Reluctant Psion.
A recent post-grad just trying to get her foot in the door of the entertainment industry, Aureline has no real discernable skill in either combat, or magic. One night, reheating some dinner went horribly wrong and the 20-year-old found herself transported to the Fields of Justice.
Aureline quickly discovered measured potential in being a super high-damage mage. This is quickly and almost totally negated by a terror of being caught out of position and dying, resulting in her backing the eff up out of anything heading south*.
Despite the devastating amount of damage she can do, Aureline is easily intimidated, quailing under the slightest bit of pressure. Her newfound magic has evolved to defend her in some way, turning her into one of the most elusive champions the League has ever seen.
Innate - "Oh Dear God" When Aureline falls below 45% health, she becomes stealthed. Stealth lasts until she exceeds 45% health.
Q - "RAAAAAR" Passive: Aureline gains "Charges" on successful last-hits. There is no cap. Active: Aureline unleashes these charges in cone. Each charge gives additional damage. If the target is killed, half of the charges are returned.
W - "Peace Out" Active - Aureline flees a distance in a certain direction. The range is determined by the number of nearby enemies. After casting this ability, Aureline gains bonus movespeed based on AP.
E - "aaaAAAAAAAHHH" Active: Aureline creates a shields that grows greatly in strength over a period of time, then erupts in a knockback, doing damage to all nearby enemies.
Ult - "Here Goes Nothing" Active: After channeling for 4 seconds, Aureline stuns, silences, suppresses, slows, and blinds all opponents within a tremendous range, while unleashing a devastating amount of magic damage. This can be canceled by enemies during the channel by either walking too close to Aureline, or targeting her with literally anything. It's like Karthus, if Karthus were a wuss.
She has extremely low base health. She re-defines fragile. I guess you could build her like a gap-closing AP bruiser, with the W + E combo, but she's better as someone who just runs around like a chicken with its head cutt off.
I invite you to ponder the question, what would you be like if you were a League of Legends champion?
This isn't, like, you creating someone who can 1-shot kill everyone. Actually consider bits of your personality and how you'd fit into a kit of abilities.
Could be kinda fun! Look forward to discussing 1v1 match-ups with our other selves.
I personally think .. I'd lose. Really hard. Thanks for reading!
EDIT: I guess it's time to bump this again!
