[fanmade hero] Antar, the warrior poet

This is a repost from the old forums, so if you’ve seen it before that’s why.

So I wanted to create my own hero; and this is what I came up with.

Role: Captain
I based this hero on the Arab poet and Warrior Antarah ibn Shaddad

Heroic Perk: Create Life
When basic attacking, Antar can target his allies. If he does so, each attack will heal the target ally for a small amount, but also consume 130 of Antar’s energy. (Basic attack range 5.0)

A Ability: To Aid
Antar dashes to a target ally, removing all negative effects from that ally and granting immunity to all further effects for 0.7 seconds, as well as giving both Antar and his ally a small health barrier for 1.4 seconds.
Energy cost: 45/50/50/50/60
Cooldown: 25/22/19/16/13
Barrier: 120/215/310/405/500

B Ability: Earthshock
Antar charges up for 0.9 seconds, then slams the ground with his spear, briefly silencing all nearby enemies and cracking the ground in a large area around him. Enemies walking through the area will be slowed for the duration which they are in the area.
Damage: 120/150/180/240/300 - 125% weapon ratio
Energy cost: 80/100/110/120/140
Cooldown: 10/10/10/10/7
Duration: 4/5/6/7/8
Silence duration: 0.9/1.0/1.1/1.2/1.3
Slow: 35%/40%/45%/50%/60%

Ultimate: Poem of Light
Antar reads from his scroll, reading the words of the sky poem, which after 0.6 seconds provides Antar and his team complete vision of the entire Fold (or Rise).
Cooldown: 105/90/75
Energy cost: 70/70/70
Duration: 6/8/10

So there you are! Tell me what you think! I’m not sure about the numbers, they may seem really OP, or, more likely, too weak, so feel free to leave suggestions!


His A and B are okay because his Ult is just utility.

That’s the idea. Powerful in the early game, but still gets a spike at lv6. His ult would be amazing for map control, taking dragons, Kraken, objectives etc, and brilliant for backdooring.

He isn’t too weak he has WP scaling and utility so he would be a WP infused captain mostly.

yeah. My idea was to play him as a cap but with a TT to boost his passive

So “To aid” is just a better version of Vanguard literally.

Yeah, My idea was to combo Vanguard with Skedaddle. you could remove the barrier and just make it a skeddadle for allies.

It is lorelai’s ult and Ardan’s vanguard mashed together lol.
