Giovanni, the Demacian Cook

"Although we owe the food to gods, it's the devil who have sent this cook."
Swain.

Story
Young child of the people, his father worked as a clerk in the kitchens of the palace of Demacia, this is how the young Giovanni discovered the world of gastronomy. Straying into the castle to follow his father, he quickly became known by his colleagues. At the age of 15, he took his first steps as a cook, showing an uncanny ability in the handling of food. He gains experience and rank, he was then at 25 years old, the youngest chef of Demacia. To caring for the warriors of the city-state participating at the League of Legends, and to defend the flag of his country, he decided to join the fields of justice, to put his skills for Demacia.

Description
Almost the size of Gragas, small and fat, a curley mustache, white cook clothes and white toque. Its auto-attacks are plates launched like a frisbee. His dance is a Loituma style, he takes a leek and makes it turn. He has an italian accent. We are currently working on a visual representation of the idea, I hope it will be finished quickly.

Voice
Selection: "On the spot... or take away ?"
Taunt: "I'll eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."
Joke: "Which one of us will be stuffed the first ?."
Teleport: "Eat up ! Before it cools..."
Recall: "Hunger is the best sauce in the world."

Movement: "What's cooking ?"
Movement: "At your service."
Movement: "A watched pot never boils".
Movement: "I am the chief cook, and the bottle washer !"
Movement: "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."

Attacking: "Set the table !"
Attacking: "Many cooks spoil the broth !"
Attacking: "Somebody wants to be grilled ?"
Attacking: "I will bring you to boil."
Attacking: "A goose is cooked."

Use Q: "Taste that !"
Use W: "Soup up !"
Use E: "Cheese~!"

Discussion
Welcome to the League of Legends Champion Spotlight featuring... Giovanni, the Demacian Cook. Me and Bibah, the co-creator of this champion, are French, so sorry for eventual mistakes, and we would love to hear your corrections. We're also open to any proposal for the balancing, any improvements, or whatever. We obviously try to create a champion that fits perfectly to the game.
So let's discuss ! What do you think of the idea ? Of course, it's supposed to be a support, but I will play him as a jungler because he deals tons of damage.


By XIII and Bibah.

I think that you should makes your W scale with AP instead of ad.. or your ult sacle with AD.. because I don't think that a hybrid/support would work. Personally, it would be interesting to create a AD/support. Additionnaly, I would add someting to your passive... to makes it more interesting. (everytime you claim a kill or an assist, your passive is reseted, or something like that) But i like the general idea thought!

I think you talk about the Q. That's not an hybrid support, we aren't supposed to build AD or AP on him (but Shurelya, etc...), the AD ratio is just for slightly increase the damage, by the base AD. Of course, we could increase the damage of the spell and put an AP ratio, but in that case why playing support and not otherwise, as Lulu ? This AD ratio provides moderate damage throughout the game.

For the passive, I don't know, I see it more as a bonus, and there isn't yet a similar concept in the game, I think it's already enough. But if someone has a better idea for it, why not !

I think you have inspired me to try to think up a Noxian cook now Like the current work, I would say just polish it up, and it would be pretty good.

Thanks guys ! Does Riot really look these suggestions ? And is this possible that they create a champion with ours as an inspiration ?
Ahha, I have a copyright on the cooks now, sorry SaintPinHead ! I would like to polish the creation, but how ? Any ideas ?

They do look at the champions, they might give constructive comments, and on an ultra rare occasion, they might design a champion around a concept (From what I'm told Volibear is one such champion.) As for the cooks thing I'm working on one in my down time at work. To be honest, as of now it's a cook of sorts, but you'll see when I'm done. I'll come back when I have time to sit and read your concept again, and try to help.

I've indeed heard of it for Volibear. But there are many good suggestions, and only a few are designed. Can I really hope that Riot will be interested in mine? Ahha.

Just a little bump, some people flood the forum with underdeveloped and uninteresting threads...
