I adopted this mechanic for a new champion suggestion, Oberon, the Faerie King.

I'm going for an Elise/Invoker hybrid. I want to retain his army-of-ghouls feel, without the current spam-harass mechanic. I've dabbled with AD/AS Elise (and I will often still buy things like Malady and Rageblade) - it is really fun! So, I thought I'd try and fashion Yorick into the AD-Elise.

The only issue is deciding how to handle his Q/W/E cooldowns. I'm considering going full-Udyr style and making each cooldown the same.
