Mirin, the Stormblade


Mirin, the Stormblade

Heroic Perk: Stormblade
Mirin does 50% less WP Damage on her autoattacks to enemy heroes.
Whenever Mirin autoattacks an enemy hero, she gains one stack of storm. This grants her 2% attackspeed per stack, up to a maximum of 100 stacks. These stacks fall off rapidly when not in combat.
Additionally, Mirin cannot build bonus HP. Any HP built is converted into attackspeed (5% AS per 100 HP)

A: Fast as the Wind
Mirin channels magic into her blade, giving her a limited number of autoattacks on hit damage for a short period. These autoattacks give her additional stacks and grant a small burst of movespeed when they land.

Number of Attacks: 7/7/7/7/9
Number of Stacks: 2/2/2/2/3
Damage = 40/60/80/100/150 + 70% CP Ratio
Cooldown = 9/8/7/6/5
Movespeed Boost = 10%

B: Nimble as Lightning
Mirin enters a defensive stance, preventing her from moving for 0.5 seconds. During this time, if Mirin is hit by an autoattack, a projectile or a CC ability, she negates all damage and CC effects on her and blinks behind the source. She then stuns her target when building WP and Slows in an AOE around her target when building CP, and deals damage. Additionally, she gains bonus stacks of storm.
Overdrive: Reduce the CD of this ability by 1 second every time Mirin autoattacks an opponent

Damage: 120/140/160/180/200 + 200% WP
Stun: 0.001% WP Ratio (Max 1 second)
Slow Strength: 0.0005% CP Ratio (Max 50% slow)
Slow duration: 2 seconds
Stacks: 10 + 0.1% CP Ratio (Max 20)
Cooldown: 15/13/11/9/15

C: Destructive as Thunder
Mirin discharges all of her storm stacks, executing all enemies within a certain threshold. If an enemy is not within the execute threshold, Mirin deals damage to them instead.

Damage: 100/200/300 + 250% CP + 150% WP
Execute: 0.3% max HP + 0.001% WP Ratio per stack (Max 0.5% per stack)

Base Stats:
Health 700 - 2600

Attackspeed 100-200%
Armour/Shield 20-50
Movespeed 3.6
Attack Range 3.3

The idea for this character came from the idea of static electricity. I thought a character that charged up by slapping you in the face with a noodle sword before zapping you with all the static they charged up would be cute.

One day VG will powercreep so hard that there won’t be any need for the 50% penalty on her passive.


My favorite part about her in this meta of CC chaining
