I created a mechanic that supports both Scare and Study in my Dean Hardscrabble concept, so I thought: why not create a character concept that focuses on this mechanic instead of having it as an extra? Feel free to leave any feedback!
Professor Derek Knight is a 1 Star Midline Support Hero whose Trial Team is Yellow.
Professor Knight wants his students to always give their best in terms of Scaring, so after seeing the use of Scare against the creeps, he decided to enter the battlefield himself to teach the heroes how to Scare properly, because a good Scare follows a good Research, and a good Research requires Study!
“Alright, alright, who can tell me the properties of an effective roar?”
Mastery Collections: Support
Entrance: Professor Knight walks into position and a clipboard glitches into his hand.
Victory: Gives a proud look at his allies and the player.
Defeat: Looks to the ground, ashamed that he wasn’t able to teach his allies properly.
Basic Attack: Throws a piece of chalk at enemies.
The Research for Success
Professor Knight looks at some notes about the enemies in his clipboard, applying Researched to all enemies for 10 seconds. If at least one enemy was already Researched, Scared or Studied; this skill also grants 50 Crit Damage and X Skill Power to all Allies and Professor Knight for 10 seconds. Researched enemies that are either Scared or Studied have 100% chance of receiving a Super Crit with the respective types of Damage.
Didactic Scare Fantastic Damage
Professor Knight does a Scare Demonstration, Scaring all enemies and dealing X Damage to them. If at least 1 enemy was already Researched, Scared or Studied; this skill also applies “Taught” to all allies for 10 seconds. Taught allies have a 50% chance of dodging attacks from enemies that are either Scared, Studied or Researched and deal 50% more damage to them.
Professor Knight takes notes about the enemies in his clipboard, studying all enemies for 10 seconds. If at least 1 enemy was already Researched, Scared or Studied; this skill also grants X Armor and X Reality to all allies and Professor Knight, and extends the duration of any buff that they had before by 5 seconds.
Whenever Professor Knight and his allies deal a Crit or a Super Crit on enemies, their buffs’ lenght is extended by 1 second. Everytime a buff is extended by this skill, the Professor Knight gains 50 energy.
The energy gain is reduced if Professor Knight is above level Z.
The Best of My Students
Whenever Professor Knight or his allies Scare, Research or Study an enemy, they gain 1 Stack of Hardy.
Studied enemies receive a Z Armor Debuff and Scared enemies receive a Z Reality debuff while Studied/Scared. The debuff value is doubled if they are Researched as well.
