Quote:
The city-state of Zaun has been the center of much magical and techmaturgical innovation – with such minds as Warwick, Viktor, and even Xavier Rath having paved the way for scientific and magical progress though whatever means available to them. However, one such mind had the brilliant notion of seeking to devise something that nobody else had. To create a device that could generate gold from nothing. Gilford sought out to do just that, not for utility or progress, but simply because he wanted nothing more than to be the wealthiest person on the planet.

So he designed a pair of gloves that were able to produce various constructs comprised of gold, though this was achieved through the absorption and solidification of ambient mana. He toiled for days and weeks, trying to perfect his inventions, but ultimately he found that his gloves were not only able to convert mana into gold-like constructs but they could also transmute various materials into that same gold-like substance. Over time his greed drove him deeper and further into madness until he came to the League of Legends to collect some “golden idols”….

Passive : Very well thought out. 15% might be much for a passive.

Q: Kinda Like TF's Seeing ability but with damage added. Kinda like that

W: Not to bad. Depending on how much armor is built might want to trim off some off of the armor

E: I like it, Nothing wrong with it in my book

R : sounds balanced for the most part. I like it though

Overall : Very Intresting Character. One that I hope to see might catch some more attention.

I have my own character, If you wouldnt mind looking at mine:

Although I can't be of much use, as I am very blunt about me being a herpdaderp when it comes to the numbers games on here, I would like to say that I very much like this champion concept as King Midas is one of my favorite Greek tragedies. I hope to see Gilford continue to shine!

Your attribution for both Mage and Tank is pretty disturbing. A mage is another word for 'AP carry', meaning high magic damage, low defense. Tank is low damage, high defense. Which one is your champion? You can't have both.

Also, I'm not sure about what role is Gilford playing. His passive reduces movement speed, his Q gives sight, his W absorbs damage, his E reduces mana cost on other abilities, and his R damages and stuns. Really, there isn't much to work with here, hence I'm not sure what's new about this concept. The synergy is poor, since Gilford can unload his abilities in any order he wishes. His damage is too low for a mage, and it's very hard to tank as Gilford, since he doesn't have anything that makes enemies want him dead first. To be brutally honest, the concept is too generic and seem 'unfinished'. Consider what you want your champion to do, what role he's fitting in the League, and then change his abilities so that they work with his role. Right now, Gilford seems to be made without having a proper role to play.

This is my RP account, but I'm too lazy to switch back. Anyways, I honestly didn't care too much about the "role" Gilford would play. I came up with his concept (a champion that crafts constructs of gold and turns others to gold) first, then I came up with his lore and planned out his abilities with an advisor of sorts.

I initially intended him to be a tank what with his stats (which are average of a tanky champ's), his passive (movement reduction), and his W and R. And he's still a work in progress, so **** your senseless "He has no role hurdurdur" because you're not contributing. All you did in this post was point out flaws but offered no resolution.

If you don't have any constructive criticism then go away. I don't care if you've made a bunch of other (and in my personal opinion, uninspiring) champions.
