Mar’kell uses the powers of illusion and misdirection to confuse his opponents creating opportunities for his team to surprise, ambush, and pick off enemies. You can choose to build support items and take the Roam position for your team, or you can build CP to increase duration and effectiveness of his abilities while taking the roll of lane or jungle.
Mar’kells appearance is incredibly similar to this image below of Harry Houdini. He wears an old timey suit with the sleeves rolled up and just as in this photo, has his wrists shackled.
Heroic Perk: Master illusionist
Mar’kell is incredibly hard to nail down and thanks to his always confusing illusion tricks all incoming damage is reduced by 7%. It’s a wonder you’re able to hit him at all.
A ability: The Trifecta
When activated Trifecta creates 2 “ghost images” in a triangle formation. The 2 ghost images mirror visually every single move the real Mar’kell makes. Any damage the ghost images take will buff the real Mar’kells damage output for a short duration.
Note- the ghost images are in a spread formation roughly the size of Ardan’s gauntlet. The way the ability activates is on the first tap a visual triangle appears around Mar’kell on the ground, and a second selection tap near one of the corners of the triangle is where the player is within the formation. Ghost images do no damage and the way you can tell they’re not the real ones is that upon taking damage their health bars do NOT get lower. Only the real Mar’kells health bar moves. Any movement Mar’kell makes is mimicked perfectly by the ghosts.
B ability: Flashbang
Mar’kell points his finger and emits of powerful beam of light. Target takes CP damage and is literally blinded. The target’s screen turns completely white for 1 second. The player can still move and use abilities, but simply cannot see the screen while doing so.
Notes- this is a skill shot, and can pass through lane minions. Blindness affects first hero the light collides with.
C ability: Confused yet?
Mar’kell masks his entire team by visually switching all three members. All Hero abilities stay the same but every member of Mar’kell’s team appears as a different hero. During the duration of the ability the entire team has increased def and shield.
Notes: Say your team is Mar’kell, Rona and Vox. When his C ability is activated, the Vox visually turns into Mar’kell, The Rona Turns into Vox and Mar’kell turns into Rona. Again all their abilities and AA will still appear the same, so in this example you’d see Mar’kell throwing out Vox’s sound projectiles and resonance rings.
ALL FEEDBACK is welcome!
Just a note: I wanted save my hero creations by bringing them here.
