The more attack damage you build the more damage your spells and pet will deal, making you very scary in 1v1. However, if you build health it makes both you and your pet tankier, making you more helpful for the team in late game teamfights. The key to play Murdock well is knowing when to tank damage and throw out his CC, and knowing when to drop your defenses and go for all out offense.

Murdock: the Ranger

Murdock is able to summon his loyal companion, Larsa, to assist him combat. All of Murdock’s abilities gain an extra effect while Larsa is summoned at the price of an alliance cost.

[Q] Frontline Stomp

Cost: 10%
Cooldown: 7

Slow/Reduction: 15/20/25/30/35%
Diameter of AoE: 250
Skill Description: Murdock stomps onto the ground so powerfully that it shakes nearby foes, dealing damage up front and reducing attack speed for 3 seconds.
+Larsa Effect: Larsa dashes forward in a line precisely from the point Murdock is facing, dealing damage to all enemies she passes through. She stops at the first champion she strikes and applies a slow. If Larsa fails to contact an enemy champion she dashes back to Murdock.

[W] Wild Warrior
Cost: 5%
Cooldown: 10
Bonus Armor/AD: 10/15/20/25/30
Life Steal/Spell Vamp: 3/6/9/12/15%

[E] Raucous Tackle
Range: 675
Cost: 20%

Diameter of AoE (Larsa): 500
Stun Duration: 2
Reveal Duration: 1
Skill Description: Murdock channels for .5 seconds, roaring viciously before leaping forwards with wild abandon, dealing damage to all enemies in his path. He stops at the first damage he crashes into, applying stun.
+Larsa Effect: Larsa leaps to where Murdock lands and thrashes about the area wildly, dealing damage to all enemies and revealing any enemy champions with her keen senses.

[R] Summon: Larsa (Toggled)
Range: 1000
Cost: 3% per second
Physical Damage: 30/50/65/80% Current AD
Skill Description: If there is a bush within range that lacks any enemy vision, Murdock is able to summon Larsa out of the closest viable bush. While Larsa is summoned, passive regeneration of Alliance stops. Any time Larsa takes damage the amount of Alliance equal to that damage will be depleted. Larsa will actively attack Murdock’s target unless an ability is activated, but if Murdock dies or all Alliance is depleted Larsa becomes untargetable and flees the battle.
I'm more blown away that you thought Larsa was a girl! Not that Larsa can't be a girl -- I just didn't expect anyone to assume so. I like the kit, but it seems a little convoluted. Perhaps there needs to be more of a focus on tanking regarding all of the abilities...

I'm sure anyone creative enough could come up with connecting lore that explains her Ionian heritage, and Zaun appearance though.
or vice versa
she could have been in Ionia as part of Riven's task force. Get's left for dead when Riven deserts and ends up staying in Ionia and learning how to fight like a monk after the war ends.

on the other hand, maybe she was an Ionian who was crippled in the war by Riven and later runs into Viktor. He convinces her to join his revolution (at least that she's willing to let him help her exact her revenge on Riven) and BAM! Ionian chick in Zaun armor - I'd buy it.

It depends on whether you want to focus on her as Riven's Ionian rival, or the Mech-armor chick who also happens to be Riven's rival. Really though I guess you can have both.

I think being a victim of Riven's past wrongs helps create a stronger lore and rivalry than her being a Noxian/Zaun piece of collateral damage. It provides more depth to her as a character overall.

Being an Ionian victim of Riven's assault gives her reason to pursue an over-the-top path to revenge. She becomes a strong champ in her own right, showing she can hit just as hard as any other fighter. But Riven is trying to redeem herself for past wrongs. The confrontation of the two creates an odd tension. You don't have a true hero or villain in this scenario, and it creates for a more interesting dynamic. This is just the basic lore I connected though -- anyone talented at writing lore could probably create something twice as interesting using my own lore as the bullet points. I think what really makes Quinn interesting, is that she is an innocent who starts following a darker path for revenge; and at the same time, Riven is a guilty soul who starts seeking a better life through redemption -- and this happened for the same reason. Quinn's lore is essentially the other half of Riven's lore and it helps create a deeper concern for both character's development.

Here's some fun food for thought;
1 -- How does Riven deal with this confrontation?
2 -- How does Quinn really feel about Riven's new path
3 -- Is an alliance between them forged in the future?
4 -- Are they really rivals? or sworn enemies?

I think what I mean is... a focus on armor/sustain/health/aoe dmg. Right now his abilities combined with Larsa seem just a bit too all over the place, with a bunch of different CC's and damage placements. Just going off of how I drew him up, I feel he just needs to be a little more focused on the tank side -- with the worg being his source of damage (while still being tanky). I don't know if I'm explaining this right -- but I think it's a good start to approaching his kit -- some stats should definitely be shared between the two.

Basically how his combo works is he uses Q to send the worg straight into someone to slow them, then he uses E to jump in their face with the stun. Alternatively, he can jump over a wall into the bushes, reveal all the enemies around him and then use Q to AoE. Also the worg is definately the main source of damage, just look at his Q and W.
