Description

Kin is garbed in a ragged, once-regal purple cloak over a brown vest and long, puffy white shirt. She wields a withered sceptre in her left hand and a neon-lit hextech "grenade" in her right. Her hair is styled as a faux-hawk.

Kin, the Glyphshaper is a champion design in League of Legends.

Kin begins with 1 rank in her ultimate ability, and can rank it up 3 additional times, once each at 6, 11, and 16. Note that Kin has multiple means of creating Glyphs, but primarily creates Glyphs via Encore.

Glyphs have 3 health, and take a maximum of 1 damage from any source. This includes that they will only take 1 total damage from any periodic effect, such as Torment.png Torment or Null Zone.png Null Zone; though obviously a single champion can damage them multiple times with unique spells or attacks. Glyphs stay fairly close to Kin, though the most recently gained stays the farthest.

Glyphs do not block skillshots, nor are they targetted by minions, monsters, or towers. (Whether they take damage from single-target skillshots as they pass through is undefined, though preferred. This depends upon the difficulty of coding such a thing.)

COST: 35 mana
COOLDOWN: 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 / 4
ChampionSquare

Active: Kin lashes out with her sceptre, dealing damage to targets in a line. Each active glyph also immediately casts from its location at 20% damage.

  • Magic damage: 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 (+ 40% AP)

ChampionSquare

Active: Kin fires a skillshot that impacts with the first enemy target, dealing magic damage and slowing for 1.5 seconds. Each active Glyph also immediately casts from its location at 20% damage and 50% slow effect; damage is halved for each successive hit on the same target, and slows cannot apply again at all.

  • Magic damage: 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 (+ 60% AP)
  • Slow: 30% / 35% / 40% / 45% / 50%

Reshape
ChampionSquare

Passive: Kin gains bonus ability power for each active Glyph. In addition, every fourth basic ability she casts will snare targets hit.

  • Bonus AP: 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 / 14
  • Snare duration: 0.7 / 0.9 / 1.1 / 1.3 / 1.5

Active: Kin alters the shapes of her Glyphs, redirecting their attacks and movement.

  • Direction one: Abilities directed at cursor point. Glyphs orbit Kin in a spiral.
  • Direction two: Abilities fired parallel to Kin's cast direction. Glyphs stand by Kin in wedge formation.


Premise
ChampionSquare

Passive: On levelling any basic ability for the first time, Kin immediately creates a Glyph.

Passive while off cooldown: Whenever any of Kin's active abilities damage at least one enemy champion, she creates a Glyph, up to a cap. Kin cannot create more than one Glyph every few seconds. Additionally, if a Glyph is damaged, it becomes untargettable for a short period.

  • Maximum Glyphs: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
  • Glyph untargetability duration: 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2
  • Glyph creation cooldown: 3 / 2 / 1 / 0
Encore
RANGE: 675
COST: 85 / 95 / 105 / 115 mana
COOLDOWN: 23 / 17 / 11 / 5
ChampionSquare

Active: Kin moves a Glyph to a target location for 6 seconds, revealing the area around it. If she uses a basic ability during this time, its cooldown is lowered to 1 second and the Glyph is destroyed. Otherwise, Kin can activate this ability again to destroy all other Glyphs and blink to that position, dealing magic damage in an area on arrival.

  • Magic damage: 30 / 110 / 190 / 270 (+ 70% AP)


Designer notes

Initial round

Kin is based off of Toil, but much more cohesive and with much more interesting play choices.

COOLDOWN: 11 / 10 / 9 / 8 / 7

  • Silence duration: 1.1 / 1.2 / 1.3 / 1.4 / 1.5 seconds
