Feel free to leave any feedback and correct any mistakes! I really liked making this concept, so I hope you enjoy it!
Ernesto De La Cruz is a 1 Star Midline Control Hero, whose Trial Team is Yellow.
His talent and charisma are only a facade to his true nature: a ruthless, greedy man that is capable of doing anything to keep his reputation. Ernesto De La Cruz will control the battlefield with his powerful voice and intoxicating drinks.
“Murdered? I’m the one who’s willing to do what it takes to seize my moment. Whatever it takes.”
Mastery Collections: Control, Stun.
Entrance: Ernesto walks into position, looking resigned. He then offers a toast to the Betrayed enemy, and drinks from his own cup. If green skill is unlocked, he will also throw his glass at the enemy with the most armor.
Victory: Ernesto Smirks and then sings loudly.
Defeat: The Bell that killed Ernesto hits him once again.
Basic Attack: Ernesto De La Cruz sings, damaging nearby enemies.
A Silent Betrayal Normal Damage
Passive: At the start of each wave, the player can choose one enemy for Ernesto to mark with “Betrayed”. The Betrayed enemy has a DoT effect of 5% of their Max HP per second, and cannot receive any active buffs. When the Betrayed enemy is K.Oed, Ernesto receives all the buffs they would have received. If on auto, Ernesto will betray the enemy with the most Skill Power.
Active: Ernesto sings loudly, silencing all enemies for 14 seconds. This skill also doubles the damage done by all DoT effects on enemies, and extends their lengths by 5 seconds. Ernesto De La Cruz heals himself by the Extra DoT done by this skill.
The DoT length extension might fail in enemies above level Z
The Drink of Fate Normal Damage
Now, when Ernesto drinks from his glass at the start of the wave, he grants himself 300 energy. Then, he throws it at the enemy with the most armor, applying a DoT effect of X Damage per second for 10 seconds and stunning that enemy for 10 seconds. If that enemy was the Betrayed enemy, the stun is extended by 5 seconds and the DoT effect deals double damage.
Stolen Song Normal Damage
When an enemy would activate a skill that applies a buff to himself or an ally, Ernesto counters by singing a stolen song, silencing that enemy for 6 seconds and applying that buff to himself and his allies. If this skill counters the Betrayed enemy, they also receive a DoT effect of X damage per second for 6 seconds. Ernesto can counter a buff once every 8 seconds.
Remember Me Normal Damage
When an enemy is K.Oed for the first time, Ernesto offers a Toast in their memory, applying all the effects from The Drink of Fate. Now, when Ernesto throws his glass, it shatters, leaving glass shards on the ground around the hit enemy that apply a DoT effect of X damage per second for 6 seconds to the enemies that step on them.
Whatever it Takes
If the first K.Oed enemy was the Betrayed enemy, Remember Me can now apply Betrayed to another enemy.
When an enemy is disabled while having a DoT effect, or vice versa, both debuffs’ lengths are extended by 5 seconds.
Ernesto receives 1 Stack of Hardy whenever the Betrayed enemy would receive a buff, or an enemy is interrupted while trying to apply a buff.
The Applying of Hardy might fail if Ernesto is above level Z
