So this is an idea I’ve had for some time and shared with others however no one cared enough to reply so I’ll force it here. I’ve always dreamed as a designer of including something into the river of Sovereigns Rise. Now before all the negativity and people not caring about the game dead starting rushing in like the 3 male assassins going for that booty,
This is just my personal thoughts as a person who loves designing heroes and weaving tales and just aesthetics in general. Creativity is subjective. I implore all of you to just hear me out before burning me to the ground.
I’ve always found the river that runs through Sovereign’s Rise to be lacking in some regards mainly in objectives. I mean sure you have the 2 dragons but that’s about it. What I would like to see is actual river fauna. Here in lies my proposal for the Mud Angler.
Icy Snark from Alice: Madness Returns. The best approximation of my vision.
The Mud Angler will wander along the river surface wandering up and down the river revealing everything around it within a 3-meter radius for both teams. Upon seeing any hero crossing the river it will charge at them and viciously attack. Its first attack will deal a large amount of damage to whichever hero it’s attacking.
Killing the Mud Angler will take considerable time however as it is quite beefy. However, if you secure the Mud Angler it will dive underwater and start patrolling the river up and down providing the vision for your team only. The Mud Angler, when captured, provides true vision along the river revealing enemy heroes and cams. The hero who last hits the Mud Angler will also be granted a temporary water denizen perk for 1 minute. (all durations and time limits will be subject to change)
There will be 2 Mud Anglers spawning in with the rest of the jungle at the start of the game. I’m not knowledgeable about respawning times so comment down below.
I personally feel the Mud Angler will add a new dimension to the River as a mechanic aside from just a speed boost to the other lanes.
Commentate down below about what you think about this.
