This is sadly, my 3rd blog this year. I'm ashamed of myself.
Like always, feel free to discuss in the comment section. Ask me a question about the concept, the idea of X in the game, where have I been all this time, etc. and I'll provide an answer (most of the time).
Fulgurion is a dangerous being of lightning, able to manipulate electricity itself and conjure devastating storms upon those who stand in his way. A shadow of his former self, Fulgurion seeks to eliminate all seekers of knowledge before they locate a hidden artifact that countless have lost their lives for. As to what the ancient talisman does, only few bear that particular piece of information.
Back in 2013, I had various sketches and drafts for a champion that utilizes electricity itself, sort of a lightning elemental.was initially the custom champ that I wanted to possess electrical powers.
Given time, that changed. Mark went on to be a Technomancer and has finally found his right place as 'the one that moves through time'. I felt that it was uneasy to leave the lightning theme wasted, so I quickly tried to utilize a kit that'd be fit for an electricity mage: Fulgurion.
The initial passive was (and is) called Astraphobia (fear of lightning and thunder). The only thing I changed about it is its damage. It previously applied bonus damage to Fulgurion's ability, mainly the one that applied the stun onto its target. It had to be removed, given his all-in potential is rather high and very rewarding in organized 5v5s.
The basic abilities haven't suffered any changes. More or less, I've just switched their positions (Q was E, W was Q, E was W). After I found the right setup, I decided to adjust the costs and that's all about it for his basic abilities.
Arcstorm is Fulgurion's signature ability and ultimate. It seems like a Janna Monsoon, but it has factors that need to be fulfilled to make it function like that. Nothing changed about it since its very first draft.
I decided to change the kit a bit, making it have several more interactions in order to make his kit a lot more fun/better/complex.
- Fulgurion's 'development name' was Tesla.
- The names of Fulgurion's abilities (partially excluding his passive) have never been changed at any date in development. (This is something I rarely due, since I have a lot of books that I usually use for rare key words)
- Fulgurion was initially meant to be Mark's rival. That changed after Mark's theme switch from Technomancer to 'Time-God'.
