(Original concept scrapped. See lower post containing 'Seething Slag')
I don't like this. The rune doesn't represent the flavorful art. Aside from Fester -which is debatable- I see no trademark UD style flavor or ability. Simply put, the artwork, and flavor text paint a picture that the design fails to follow through on. Normally I'm against giving criticism without giving a solution. However, everything I've thought of Slags already have access to. Namely Suiciders, and Ranged Damage Sponges. Perhaps an AoE Debuffer would be a better design route.
Thank you for being honest. I appreciate feedback on this, even if it is negative.
I had considered an ability for a potential SP/UD split champion but ultimately decided against it.
Boil Ooze: Ooze terrain within (however many) spaces of the champion inflicts 4 fire damage to any champion entering an affected space or beginning their turn there. This does not affect champions that possess lavawalker.
Perhaps going for such a route would have been more advisable?
+1 for LAVA OOZE
I could do this..
Would it be Elemental, Slag, or would it be Demon, Slag? I could see it done either way.
Additionally, here is another ability idea;
Defiling Ooze: When a non-flying opposing champion within 5 spaces enters Ooze, it becomes cursed 2 and defiled 2.
I don't like being negative, but I felt honest feedback was the way to go. Thank you.
I like it.
If you stick with Boiling Ooze, then I'd suggest you go Slag, Elemental. SP has more than a fair amount of elementals, and so does UD. You'd need to tinker the art/flavor of the champ to replace the demonic tendencies with elemental styled ones, but I'd say it's a good route to go down. The elemental race alone would give it more usage outside of slags, while Boiling Ooze would add a new layer the slags mechanics.
Then, lets try this again;
Faction: Shattered Peaks/Underdepths (or FF Underdepths)
Race: Elemental, Slag, Class: None, Size: 1x1, Rarity: ?
Artwork: A slag with eyes glowing like embers. Bubbles form on its flesh, from which some burst with flame.
Flavor-Text: "Never in all my years have I seen such an angry slag. Who knew slag could be angry in the first place?"
Nora Cost: ~70(?)
DAM: 9, SPD: 6, RNG: 1, DEF: 1, HP: ~40
Boil Ooze: Ooze terrain within 5 spaces of the champion inflicts 4 fire damage to any champion entering an affected space or beginning their turn there. This does not affect champions that possess Lavawalker or Trail: Ooze.
