Why do we not have a champ where they release their full potential on ult

Sort of like Zetsuei. Spends most of his time completely bound in a straight jacket.
Yeah, but like... cooler than a straight jacket. Something with metal and runes or something.

Her W is like old Sivir's bouncing blade things, only its manaless.

Instead of a spell shield she has a flat AD increase.

Her ult, isntead of being an AoE AS+MS increase launches out a whole bunch of her Q's, randomly, to the nearest targets (can be on minions)

Oh, she's also Irish, rides a cat, and would spill your entrails if her Goddess demanded it =p http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Luna (be patient with the site; they have issues a lot--might have to refresh it a lot before it shows). Or video, if you prefer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7ro0fVJSpA

I think one of the challenges is having the FEEL of that unleashing without the UP start and OP ult. We're talking about filling and selling different character fantasies to players.
Running with the Kayle idea from earlier, make the ult allow her to go manaless with low c/d (1 sec). This way you can balance around them spamming constantly. You know how much damage they are capable of dishing out and can turn it down to compensate for the ult. And you feel awesome smashing your keyboard and having tons of angelic fury erupt from you consuming your enemies in holy wrath.

But straight jackets and some head covering can give off some creepy/sweet Hannibal vibes.


A psychopath that is so vicious that even the authorities of Noxus feels the need to keep him bound up, and even in that bound up state he proves to be a match to even the strongest of warriors.


PS - doesn't that sound a tiny bit like Xerath and his skins?

1) yeah... I definitely wasn't talking about that.
2) I think a boomerang cross is a lot more common than you think
