Good morning Barnp

While we patiently await the arrival of a new/beautiful work of Barn art from Youmu, im going to beat a dead dog (figuratively, I love dogs).
So are there any complaints with making Hate Grab shield Barn, and when the shield breaks, it forces Barn the let go? (still keep to a min/max of 1/3).
The shield would be a good visual aid when trying to figure out how much more damage needs to be done to end Hate Grab.

It also give more development wiggle room. We could tone done Hate Grabs damage a bit, but increase the shield amount to make Barn more tanky. Or give it a decent HP ratio making items like Haunting Guise RoA, Rylai's better possible build items.

What do you guys think? Suggestions? Questions?

something like this

Hate Grab - RANGE: 275 - COOLDOWN: 14/12/10/8/6 - COST:30/40/50/60/70
-ACTIVE: Barn reaches out. If Barn's claw encounters and enemy, Barn begins to channel, snaring the enemy and shielding himself. While the shield is active, Barn deals physical damage every X seconds for the duration of Hate Grab. On hit effects apply. Lasts 3 Seconds.
-
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 10/20/30/40/50(+ Total AD)
X SECONDS (130% of Attack Speed)
SHIELD
: 90/ 150/ 205/ 270/ 320(+ 5% Max HP)

Looks fairly nice. Going a more AD Bruiser sort of build will definitely aid both the damage and shield, while going very tanky can help ensure a full duration CC. I like it, though with that scaling on the shield I think the base stats could be a bit lower at higher levels. 300+ HP along with the bonus scaling with Health could make Barn completely unbreakable without forcing the enemy to over commit to hurting him just for the sake of saving an ally. I can see a lot of teams against a tank Barn just leaving the poor sap to keep their cooldowns, lol.

You're definitely right. A tanky Barn could easily have a shield value around of 500, and with enough armor and MR might be too daunting. I want Barn to force suicidal rescue attempts from the enemy team, but I also want Hate Grab to feel rewarding when you land it. Maybe keep the base shield down 80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 300, that way a late game barns shield would be in the 400s range. Forcing the enemy team to blow at least 1 good nuke and some basic attacks or a sometimes far too valuable disable.

Been a slow past couple of days for Barn. Im thinking I might need to draw some more art/make some changes to the OP to get some good bumps out there.
The word of Barn must be spread!
