Lorraic, the Archmage is a purely conceptual champion in League of Legends. Using three elements, fire, ice and lightning, he can use these in conjunction with shapes to form a total of 9 spells. The concept is loosely based off the Invoker from Dota. While Lorraic is not nearly as advanced, this was sort of the point. I've always thought Dota is much more complex. But complexity isn't necessarily a good thing. One thing that is very important to offer in games is depth. I wanted to increase the depth of League of Legends. I feel like Lorraic may help in accomplishing this. Currently, the only stat he benefits from damage wise is AP. This makes for a very simple build path almost every time. I plan to change this.
First Cast: Engages Bolt (skillshot) shapes. Linear, no pass-through by default.

Third Cast: Engages Ward (buff) shapes. Damage is converted into shields. Adds a base duration of 6 seconds. Enemies who hit the shields take minor damage.
Range Modifier: 100%
Damage Conversion into shield: 50%
Reflection Damage: 25%
Mana Cost Modifier: 100%
Cooldown Modifier: 200%
To explain the spell shaping concept, I wanted to give some examples. A "Fire Bolt" at level 5 (and 0 AP) with the applied modifiers would deal 330 damage over 8 seconds. It would cost not 80 mana, but 40 because of the mana cost modifier. The range would be twice as long aswell, resulting in a 800 range. A "Fire Ward" would be able to absorb 110 damage and reflect 55 damage to attackers.
Keep in mind these numbers are not final! This is just a little something I think is fun to do. Feel free to give criticism.
