Do you suspect QQ about him when hes first realsed?


People don't QQ about first-release tanks.

They're boring as all sin, TBH, and offer nothing in terms of "WOW THIS WILL GET MY MONEY" Value***. (See: Sejuani. Higherups think she's terrible / bland, but her CC is immaculate if you have the right teamcomp.)


(***Unless they outdamage the damage dealers. IE: AP Mumu.)

And thank god. Every time I lean towards an Abyssal Scepter, everyone throws the noob card and threatens reports and stuff.

He might wield an anchor.

He might be slow. He might have a hookshot to compensate.

Maybe.

His ultimate is... more of a linear AoE - and it punishes the primary target much harder than secondary ones.


like a lux laser?

To be honest, I have no idea.

I recall trying to make his recommended items list.

Everyone just kind of sat there and went.. 'Ionno.'

CDR is good though.


From experience, a health ratio heavily incentivizes atma's combinations; given that he uses mana, loves CDR, and is meant to initiate, I'd say he'd fit into the Philostone->Shurelia's jungler meta.

Probably then Phage->Atmallet. (Depending on if damage or tankiness is needed.)

It also sounds like a very easy Glacial Shroud build.

Although, it is worth noting that resistance steroids like leona W or rammus curl tend to allow more offensive item builds.

Wit's End very popular on tanks these days, too.

You guys aren't peons :P - I don't know how many times the forums have shaken me out of a rut when I'm pondering about problems in design.

He will scale much better in damage output if he buys AP instead of Atma's and Frozen Mallet.

Frozen Mallet isn't really required on him either - He doesn't necessarily need more sticking power, I don't believe.

Unfortunately, no.



He follows closer to Leona and Amumu.

Sounds like Maokai to me.

I'm getting a sinking suspicion (haha) that this guy will look something like a shark.
