Everything scales with ability power.

Passive: Frozen Rage: Each cold spell cast makes you warmer, increasing damage output by 2%. Stacks up to 5 times.
------------When you cast Blow Dry, you freeze up again, and for the next 5 seconds you add a 3 second 3% slow to spells and basic hits for each stack of frozen rage.
The Q, W, and R spells are considered 'cold spells'.

Q: Water Blast: Shoot water in a target direction dealing 60/90/120/150/180 + (60%) magic damage, weighing all enemies hit and slowing them by 20% for 3 seconds while they dry off.
Mana Cost: 60/70/80/90/100
Cool-down: 6 seconds
Range: 1000
Missile Speed: Starts at 800, but decreases by 30 every 100 distance traveled.

W: Cold Jet: Suck the heat out of the air, then launch the cold air in a target direction dealing 80/110/140/170/200 + (55%) damage to the first enemy hit.
If they are effected by Water Blast, the water freezes dealing an extra 25/35/45/55/65 + (20%) magic damage and stunning them for 1.5 seconds.
Mana Cost: 50/75/100/125/150
Cool-down: 9 seconds
Range: 600
Missile Speed: 500

E: Blow Dry: Release the heat in a target direction dealing 50/80/110/140/175 + (65%) magic damage to all enemies hit.
If they are effected by Water Blast, it will evaporate removing the slow, but dealing an extra 50/70/90/110/125 + (55%) magic damage.
If they have been stunned by Cold Jet, this will remove the stun, activate the slow from Water Blast and deal an extra 50/70/90/110/125 + (60%) magic damage.
If they are not effected by anything, it increases their movement speed by 15%
Upon cast, all nearby allies have their movement speed increased by 20%
Mana Cost: 100/125/150/175/200
Cool-down: 15
Range: 550

R: Skating Time: Give all allies spiked shoes then cover a large area with ice slowing enemies by 25/30/35%. The ice takes 5 seconds to melt to 50% of its starting size dealing 8/9/10/11/12% overall magic damage each second. After the five seconds, what remains of the rink shatters dealing the remaining 50% of 300/500/500 + (150%) Magic damage.
{Since they don't have spiked shoes, they slide around making it take 1 second to turn around, then 1 more second to get back up to full speed, etc}
Mana Cost: 150/200/250
Starting Size: 1000 Diameter
Cool-down: 120/110/100
This is the new ability concept. The sliding.

Statistics:

Movement speed:-310
Attack range:-------550
Damage:------------48.6 + (2.9 / per level)
Health:---------------382 + (83 / per level)
Health Regen:-----6.8 + (0.48 / per level)
Mana:----------------215 + (60 / per level)
Mana Regen:------0.8 + (0.4 / per level)
Armor:--------------12 + (3 / per level)
Spell Block:--------30 + (0 / per level)

Death: Vailon freezes on the spot, and after 2 seconds, his body shatters and melts into the ground.

Lore:
Vailon was an honor student with a bright future ahead of her. On her way home one day she decided to take a detour and found a new store, so she decided to check it out. Once she got inside the door was shut behind her and she was carried into the basement of what looked like an alchemy lab. Vailons struggling led the alchemist to sedate her so the tests could continue. Next thing she knew, she woke up alone on a beach, on a small island way of the coast of Urtisan.
--------Vailon struggled to survive on the island alone, fighting the harsh climate of the different seasons, but as each season passed Vailon could feel something inside her changing. Not even aware that her body was undergoing slight changes each month, it was two years before Vailon was ready to embark on the journey across the sea back to the main land of Runeterra. The tests had been working, but much slower and more powerful than what was expected. The most important month was the entire trip back to Runeterra. Having been immersed in water for an entire month, her body went through the biggest change of all.
--------When she finally landed on the coast of the Demacian border, she stood up to brush herself off only to notice that from the waist up, she had become an elemental of water with the monthly changes isolated into separate areas of her new body. This new found knowledge filled Vailon with rage at which point an arm she didn't even know she had began to boil and evaporate. The shock of the third arm above her head deeply saddened her, and her left arm froze instantaneously. She decided to get a good nights sleep after the horrific journey so she could plan her next move wisely in the morning. She was disturbed by a man who called himself Heimerdinger. Her first response to someone else frightened Vailon and her right arm was launched at Heimer as unintentional self defense. Heimerdinger managed to befriend Vailon and took her back to his workshop where Heimer started working to figure out what actually happened to Vailon, and to help her train with her new powers.
--------Heimerdinger offered Vailon to join the league while he worked to figure out what happened to her. During one battle shortly after she started recognizing faces; like the face of Singed who she recognized as the man that was sedating her and Mundo who carried her down the foreboding staircase. This news was reported to Bandle city immediately and thus sparked the eminent rivalry between Noxus and Bandle city.

Appearance:
Vailon having been a yordle, aside from appearance, she still has most of the qualities of one, but the experiments have turned her into a strange monstrosity. she now has 3 arms, and her head is where her stomach normally would be. Her left arm is now made of water from the years spent on the uncharted island, her right arm is now ice from the winters on the island. her third arm is where her head used to be. this is where the heat of the summers and her rage from this unbelievable mistreatment has festered. her torso (which now includes her face) is a mix of the cold and heat so is a conglomerated mess of water (right), ice (left) and the fiery red rage (top). her legs however have actually been left unaltered, being the only identifiable evidence that she used to be a yordle.

I don't know where you come up with all these sweet ideas. The sliding effect would be a wicked addition in the game. first champ to deal with water also cool how you used it to freeze and melt.
overall... again i say i'd play it. now at 7/7..... Freaking Awesome!

The sliding mechanic would be very fun to see in game.

His other abilities synch together in a way that makes sense, which is a plus.

Blow Dry is a bit complicated though, but makes sense, turns ice into water, or evaporates water.
Interesting combo oriented caster.

Thanks for being the first person to respond to my post. For being so, i am going to do a review of your champion.
Q-Nice skill i couldnt have made better myself.Good damage, fair slow, not op not up
W-nice skill that strings together with q, nice damage, and easy nuking, nice stun, but perhaps you might want to lower the stun to 2 sec so it isnt TOO op
E-The third and last ability of the three forms of water, and the final nuking chain of the q w e combo. nice skill, sounds cool, and applies yet another slow that could be useful for chasing.
R-awesome idea for the sliding effect and the end damage. I can imagine champions now wearing tiny ice skates.....that would be so awesome!!!!!!!!
Overall-the champions damage output is nice, nice abilities, good damage, mana,etc. I think this is a great champion that i myself would want added to the league

Glad you liked it guys. yes the ult may sound op, but if it's there for 10 seconds it would be extremely hard for someone to stay in it for the end result.

nice chain caster. even the passive can be part of the chain 4 out of 7 EPIC AS SH*T ULTS!!!!! sliding would be sweet to see in game. another so unique. but i think you should change it to 5 seconds and 8/9/10/11/12 for the first 5 seconds. i want most of your guys in the game

2.5 second stun?

Kennen's stun is .5 seconds.
Annie is 1.5.

2.5 is much to much.

EDIT: And you have a 1000 damage BASE ult? Jesus man.
