Personally I think her Twilight Shroud should limit whoever is in the cloud's Field of Vision, reduces Movement Speed, and reduces Dodge Chance instead of what it does now.

It would make more sense because it's a cloud of smoke, why would you be able to see everything else inside but not her? Shortening the Field of Vision would be ideal.

Regardless, I can't wait to try this champion out in live!

I agree her twilight shroud skill needs some tweaking. I would love to see a vision reduction for everybody within the cloud, as well as dodge reduction (because you can't dodge what you can't see), attack speed and movement speed reductions are good.

She's the Fist of the Shadow, so she's obviously the melee dps part of the team. How is she for damage? And how do you guys play on the test realm?


The reason why I didn't include Attack Speed in my earlier post is because even if you can't see, you should still be able to attack as fast as you normally do if not faster. If they did my suggestion, to make it so that it's not OP, they could make it so that enemy champions who are in the cloud gain a 25% Attack speed boost because of the "panic of not being able to see".

I agree with this, but also perhaps some sort of miss chance (15%-30% perhaps) as well with that to add to the panic/can't see effect and so that they don't deal out massive damage like some champs that already have higher attack speed or damage without a boost in that.


For it to work ideally without it being OP or UP, this should happen with it.

Twilight Shroud
- Small-Medium Area
- Field of Vision Reduction to Enemy Champions (about -50-75%) Ex: It's smoke. Why should you be able to see very far in front of you?
- Movement Speed Reduction to Enemy Champions (-25-50%) Ex: Overly cautious.
- Dodge Chance Reduction to Enemy Champions (-35%) Ex: You can't see where attacks are coming from.
- Attack Speed boost to Enemy Champions (+25%) Ex: Panic from not being able to see. Natural reaction to surprises.
- Physical and Magical defense boost to Enemy Champions (+25%) Ex: On guard from incoming attacks. Overly cautious.

There would be no reason why their attacks do less damage since it's only smoke.
It would be an amazing skill to have.

Ah, they went with the poneytail? I liked her original maid hair from the sketch. I really hope she will cost 3150 ip or less, not another one at 6300.

Nice, another new champion, every single kids out there are goin to buy her, Q dodge and/or Q_Q if some1 picked her b4...she'll probly be extremely rigged and this will ruin every single game till they finaly nerf/buff her....

Why so many new heroes ? This is gettin lame. Whats about a new game mode ?



Blind pick: ok we got it...


New heroes arent bad but im gonna hafta agree with this guy. New game modes, maps, and other stuff would be nice. Even new champion bots to fight against would be great. I always luv pwning some bots after a day of losing.

Great Champ so far, I like her style.

....just please make her 1350 as we already have a 6300 ninja and a 3150 ninja.


but that would make her weaker and riot wants lots of monies from you so they wont
