Story: Not much was known about small kingdom located in the far east of Valoran, before Noxus decided to attack the prospering nation. The Noxians were enraged, because not only they could withstand their attack but successfully retaliate it for the first time. Noxians later sent even more troops for second attack and that small kingdom couldn't defend itself, having no allies at all. After kingdom's fall, the Noxian mage cursed the king, for that he was fighting too relentlessly, for him to be in his ghost form and to be unable to ever leave the kingdom premises, making him witness ruins of his kingdom's former glory for all eternity. Devastated, the king spent many years to find a way to evade the restrictions of curse, until he finally found it. By being summoned as a League of Legends champion, he could leave his defiled lands and take revenge on those who took everything from him.

Tags: AP mage, Ranged

Base stats: Average health, Low damage, Average attack speed, Average health regen, Low armor and mdef.

Appearance: Morwell is a ghostlike entity, he glows a mix of blue and green, he has a torn king's clothes and crown, his main weapon is a staff. He has a body animation, during which some things from his clothes will appear and disappear for a random time.

Passive: Ethereal Form - After getting hit (receiving damage) Morwell gains a buff for 5 seconds. Morwell gains 10% damage reduction from all sources except true damage and all of his abilities are empowered.

Around 15/14/13/12/11 seconds cooldown and 70/80/90/100/110 mana
Q: Thousands Souls - Morwell releases a group of souls which fly towards nearest enemy, deal damage and disappear upon colliding with enemy. The souls prioritize enemy champions. Morwell releases 2/4/6/8/10 souls, every soul deals 20 + (20% ap ratio) magic damage. Leveling this spell will also slightly increase souls' speed with every level. The range for souls is 1000 and if there are no enemies in sight, the souls will disappear after 2 seconds.
Ethereal Form Bonus - The souls ignore unit collision and will disappear only upon colliding with enemy champion.

Around 17/16/15/14/13 seconds cooldown and 100/110/120/130/140 mana
W: Vengeful Spirit - Morwell sends out a vengeful spirit which will fly in a line and explode upon colliding with enemy, dealing magic damage and knocking up everyone in small radius. The spirit deals 70/95/120/145/170 magic damage + (70% ap ratio).
Ethereal Form Bonus - The spirit ignores unit collision and terrain, dealing damage to every enemy hit and explodes only in target location with much larger explosion radius.

Around 25/23/21/19/17 seconds cooldown and 150/140/130/120/110 mana
E: Haunting Walk - Morwell becomes untargetable and walks towards target location, hitting every enemy he collides with, with 30/80/120/180/230 (+50% ap ratio) magic damage. Morwell walks with his normal speed for 700 distance. Morwell will receive Ethereal Form buff by the end of spell.
Ethereal Form Bonus - Haunting Walk ignores terrain.

Around 160/140/120 seconds cooldown and 200 mana
R: Soul Blaster - Morwell raises his staff and after 1 second cast time, shoots an ethereal energy sphere, which hits an enemy champion so hard that his soul will be thrown away back from target. The sphere deals 250/350/500 magic damage (+60% ap ratio), knocking back the champion's soul for 700/800/900 distance. The soul will remain for 3 seconds, during that time the affected champion will receive 10/20/30% more damage from all sources. If the affected champion fails to obtain soul back during those 3 seconds, it will disappear and deal 10% from max hp magic damage (+3% for every 100 ap). The cast time won't impair Morwell movement.
Ethereal Form Bonus - No casting time.

How to do as Morwell:

  • Preparing for fight by being hit is necessary, when you want to leave E for successful escape. If you do not wish to do so, use E before fight to instantly gain the important passive buff.
  • R deals lots of damage and amplifies all damage coming after that. That's why you should use your R first to successfully score a kill.
  • You might want to buy Rylai's Crystal Scepter to ensure that enemy will not reach his soul after being hit by R.
How to do against Morwell:
  • Avoid hitting Morwell first, that will make him use at least one ability without his passive buff.
  • Morwell becomes untargetable while using E, but his movement speed remains normal, just follow him and engage after he becomes targetable again
  • Q and W can easily be evaded on lower ranks
Overall conclusion: Just another one of your beloved ap mid laners, who is actually fun to play and requires some skill to use.

I love his haunting walk, but I'm curious as to how far it goes, since too long of an invulnerability is kind of strong , and how fast does he move? Like hecarim ult speed with a bit shorter range I feel could be adequate,

As well his w seems a little hard hitting for early game maybe tone it down to 70-80 damage at level 1?

But over all I like the idea, he isn't blatantly op, but still not weak, good job!

the dude's AP ratio's seem abysmally low. his highest is .6, while most champs have .6-.8 AP ratios. I just see his power level starting strong but really falling off later in the game.
