Champion Sneak Peek: Miss Fortune
By ByronicHero 
With the recent increase in ninja population at the Institute of War, there has been some PR backlash amongst pirate enthusiasts. For those like myself, who proudly sail under the Black Flag, Riot Games has asked me to inform you that you have not been forgotten! Every scurvy dog has his day, and very soon, you shall have yours!
To appease these constituents, we have our latest pirate champion coming up! Her name is Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter, and she's got everything a lady buccaneer should offer. I mean, just check out the pair on her! Those are some seriously huge, enormous, titanic pistols she's got there! That's right, pistols. What did you think I was talking about? So start getting excited! Miss Fortune will be sailing into your port, soon!
Champion Update: Miss Fortune struts to PBE
- Beauty and danger
There are few who can match Miss Fortune in either. One of Bilgewater's most infamous bounty hunters, she built her legend upon a swathe of bullet-riddled corpses and captured ne'er-do-wells. The booming echoes of her twin pistols in the port city's reeking wharfs and scavenger shanties are sure signs of another warrant from the Bounty Board being settled.
Miss Fortune gains gradually increasing movement speed after not taking damage for a few seconds.
[New] Strut now has increased scaling based on level, and only falls off when Miss Fortune takes direct, non-periodic damage.
- Double Up
Miss Fortune fires a shot through an enemy to hit an enemy behind them, dealing physical damage to the first and increased physical damage to the second, applying on-hit effects to both.
[New] If the first shot kills the target, the bounce damage increases.
- Impure Shots
- Passive: Miss Fortune's basic attacks deal stacking bonus magic damage.
- Active: Miss Fortune gains bonus attack speed for a few seconds.
[New] Activating Impure Shots enables Strut.
- Make It Rain
Miss Fortune rains hundreds of bullets down onto a targeted area, damaging and slowing enemies inside.
Miss Fortune's in a fairly healthy state. The slight changes we've made emphasize her core strengths and shave some hidden power in favor of clarity. Fancy design speak aside, the TLDR is your ultimate barrage of bullets remains unblemished, but we've removed Grievous Wounds from Impure Shots.
Digging into some of the other smaller changes, the updated Strut means shields will keep her passive up when fleeing or engaging and we've replaced Grievous Wounds on Impure Shots with new surprise strutting: activating her W now grants Miss Fortune's passive instantly.
We've cleaned up the bounce logic for Double Up (yes, we've done this before) and improved visual feedback when the ability fails. Now you'll see a dud bullet plop onto the ground a bit behind the first target if there isn't anything to hit.
Make It Rain's a slick package of utility wrapped in a hail of bullets, so we've increased the early rank slow, although it doesn't scale up quite as fast. Overall, we've reduced the duration but kept the damage the same. This'll make the damage slightly more consistent, and provides clarity for both MF and anyone caught in pig-iron precipitation.
Miss Fortune's donned a new model for almost all of her skins ( her Arcade self [ | was already pretty snazzy) and her base, although we've kept the familiar look you'll recognize from her splash art. With new run animations, we've made it easier to tell when her passive is up.
We've also taken the opportunity to gussy up her spell effects. Make It Rain, for example, now kicks up dust from the dirt lanes or splashes into the river depending on where it's targeted. You'll see a few other improvements to readability and general upkeep bringing her art in line with current standards, but that's the gist of how we've given the bloody-haired Bounty Hunter new paint and polish in this update.
2016 Season Update
Bullet Time now lasts longer and fires increasing waves of bullets as she levels her ult, while we're moving Strut over to her W and giving her a brand new passive tentatively titled... Love Tap. With it, MF will deal increased damage to targets other than the one she last shot at. She has two guns, and by constantly switching targets, she'll deal huge amounts of pain to multiple victims. Finally, Impure Shots doesn't last as long, but gives her much more attack speed, and crucially lasts longer every time Miss Fortune deals extra damage with Love Tap.
- Double Up
Miss Fortune fires a shot through an enemy to hit another enemy behind them, dealing more damage to the second target. Both strikes can apply Love Tap. If the first target is killed, the second target will take bonus damage.
- Passive: After a few seconds of not taking direct damage, Miss Fortune gains bonus movement speed. After a period of time, she gains additional movement speed.
- Active: Miss Fortune gains bonus attack speed, in addition to the full movement speed bonus of Strut's passive. Love Taps prolong the attack speed bonus - duration gains are doubled against champions.
- Make It Rain
Miss Fortune fires hundreds of bullets into the air that rain down at a location, dealing damage and slowing enemies.
- Bullet Time
Miss Fortune channels a barrage of bullets into a cone in front of her for a few seconds, dealing damage per wave. Bullet Time can critically strike for bonus damage.
