@Morello, was 'Seth' shelved?

Yes, though Seth is the BS-code name for an unnamed Sand Mage. We actually had him in development and couldn't get it right in the allotted time. Sand Mage is a cool concept, so we'll likely take another swing when the time is right.

In other words.

Yes, but we may come back to that concept later on.

Oh wow, an actual post by Morello!

Well, since I have your attention, and the project is on hold at the moment, mind if I ask a question then?

Any relation to Renekton and Nasus? I doubt it, but when I hear Seth and sand, I instantly think Set, which is also called Seth, from Egypt mythology.

He'd better have a badass ult named Sandstorm. Maybe name him Muad'Dib for kicks.

No details, not even sure if it will come out, or in what form. It's not soon.

NOT "soon"? Something is amiss.

Someone once made a post about a Scarab Lord type character, rleated to nasus and Renekton... I really think you should consider that aspect when revisiting the concept.

reminds me of the DnD book Sandstorm, awesome sand mage in there, however his sand shaping ability had a few too many restrictions and he wasn't too strong, i always loved the flavour

What about Hexmage, Morello? Has that champion come out yet, if not, has it also been shelved?


I ask because Seth and "Hexmage" are both the only two remaining mystery champions from the PBE leak all that long time ago.
