I have decided to cancel this champion. I will be using parts of him to create another champion in the future.

Although this champion is extremely rough, if Riot wishes to pick this idea up, I will gladly relinquish my rights to him.
After reviewing the last version of Kandule, I feel that he may be a little (haha) overpowered. As a result I have completely redone the way Kandule works. Hopefully this Kandule will be a little better. Here is a link to the original Kandule.

Skin: Sir Kandulu
Kandule’s face is revealed. His eyes are like that of a fly and his nose is merely a pair of narrow slits going from 2 inches below the lower center of his eyes to about 1 inch above the center of his vine mouth. Basically, this skin is a tribute to Lord Cthulu, the Inspiration behind this champion. Red Lightning Arcs present during Chaos Form.

{Lore}

For hundreds of years men have told legends of a horrible creature lurking in the deepest darkest parts of the lands south of the great barrier. He is supposed to be a terrible monster that can drive a man insane just by looking at them. Many great warriors have ventured to the ends of the world hoping to find this creature and bring back its head as a trophy. Only a few have ever survived long enough to even find this dangerous monster and even fewer have survived the encounter. Only one person has ever returned from this encounter alive, A powerful Demacian warrior whose name was Karad the Defender. But when Karad returned, he had become a twisted monster of a man. Today that man is known as Shaco, the Demon Jester. One day, Kandule appeared at the League of Legends in front of Shaco, Darius and one of the League of Legends administrators. When Shaco saw the hooded figure Darius saw a look of terror shoot across Shaco’s face before he vanished in a puff of orange smoke. Kandule demanded that he be allowed to join the League of Legends. The Administrator was about to answer no, but Darius managed to convince the Administrator to let Kandule join simply because he was curious as to what manner of creature could reduce Shaco to a frightened child.

Tips for fighting Kandule
-Kandule can be a very tricky character to play because he can be both a support character and an AP Burst depending on which form he takes.
-Using Madness on characters such as Master Yi while he has his ultimate on can cause serious damage to the enemy team, keep champions like Yi away from Kandule if you can. As Madness works with basic attacks, Casters can be a good counter for this.

I really need some help on this guy, as he is very difficult to handle.

Alright, Flames of Terror here, Concept Advisor for the CCF Council. Of course all statements made are my own thoughts and opinions on this. Let's begin.

==========================

To start your lore is simple, short and direct. An easy path of a story that can be brought in any direction. However, I feel that it lacks a certain push to the tale that leaves holes that only bring more questions. A terrible creature that can drive people to madness and death? I can half see why it could create a support, but also not. However here I will move on towards a key problem I see with your design.

---------------------------

Your switch mechanic isn't going to draw attention in a positive light. People don't want to die to change how they work with a character. From your words he would start as an AP support, and only after he commits suicide or dies can he take a burst caster form. Death isn't supposed to be rewarded in anyway. This is why stacks, buffs, and procs fade upon death.

Now I'm not sure what you will decide to do if you decide to edit your change style, but I'm sure it will be much different.

------------------------------

Abilities are a whole nother pickle of a problem. Going with your lore he should use fears, illusions, and taunts to aid his foes in combat, and when he switches they become less utility and more combiny. Neither of these do I really see.

Taking the support abilities alone they don't follow the ideas I mentioned above. % max life, AS and Damage increases, finally MR and AR reduction in an aura? It's not touching me.

Looking at the caster abilities they have a bit more combiny feel, but the rotation has only one outputting format. E-Q-W-R. The Q doesn't have the feeling of a bursty move either. Almost all Burst mages increase their ability to rapid cast as they increase in level. While this caster reduces it's cds as well the cooldowns are far too long. No one would ever want to use this mode because it would be down for a very long time.

-------------------------------------

I'm not you. I won't pretend to tell you the way to build this concept as it's yours. I've told you through my experience what is wrong and unbalanced, and it's your decision on how you want to use it.

======================

I hope you take everything with a grain of salt. The concept has a long way to go, and is indeed "rough". I think my words will give you some food for thought, and perhaps spur some creative insight.

If you require aid for anything you can find aids on the CCF Council thread.

Your's in fellowship,

Flames of Terror

Thank you flames for being honest. It's exactly what I needed. I have decided to scrap this champion and combine his abilities with another one of my scrapped champions (Nadukaya) to make a new champion.
