Ola’I, the Groundbreaker
Ola’I is an earth elemental who’s gameplay revolves around shaping the landscape around him.
After countless months of searching, Fortress and Rona arrive at Soverign’s Rise with Fortress’ pack in hopes of finding any leads to the nearest temple containing the ancient power-breath. Eventually, they finally find the temple in question inside a cave. The most notable aspect of the cave are all the halcyon crystals protruding the walls, enough to impale you if you do not take care in your steps when entering. Once Rona and Fortress reach the well, there is a large pile of boulders surrounding the well covered in vines. Upon seeing the vines, Fortress is immediately alarmed as the scent is very recognizable as the vines that came from the destruction of Fortress’ old temple. After Fortress alarms Rona of the vines, they are attacked by lizards, insects, and vines just like Fortress and his pack was all those months before. After some fighting, the ground begins to shake and the cave seemingly seems to be helping the Rona and the pack fight off the ambush with boulders launching from the walls in all directions. After the fighting is done, everyone notices that the pile of rubble is gone. Eventually, a large figure begins slowly emerging from the cave’s ceiling and drops down with such force that Rona nearly trips from the shaking. The figure looks to be an earth elemental surrounded by the very vines Rona and the pack fought off with a large halcyon crystal lodged inside the center of its mass. It is also sentient and is capable of communication via sign language or writing as it just makes grumbling sounds, therefore being unable to speak, but can understand any language. After some talking, Rona and the pack find out that the figure’s name is Ola’I and that it is the guardian of the well inside the cave and has been fighting off these kinds of ambushes for months now. Also, it recognizes that Fortress and his pack were fellow guardians from another land and is therefore friendly to them and is also friendly to Rona after Fortress insists that she is with him.
Passive: Land Shaping
Ola’I uses a separate bar dedicated to this passive called mana (Max: 100). He can walk through terrain with a slight boost to his movement speed and becomes untargetable. While walking through terrain, Ola’I’s mana is drained by a certain amount per second until he either leaves the terrain or drains all of his mana and cannot re-enter terrain until a very short cooldown passes. If Ola’I’s mana is fully drained while he is in a wall, he will dash towards the nearest exit (A graphic is shown where he will emerge similar to Kayn). When emerging, Ola’I bursts through the wall, knocking back any enemies away from him. Vision on Ola’I is not broken. (Inspired by Kayn’s E from League of Legends).
A percent of your energy regen is also applied to Ola’I’s mana regen
A: Boulder Launch
Ola’I Launches a boulder towards a target location after channeling for a short amount of time. Enemies in the center of the AOE are stunned and damaged, but enemies near the AOE are instead knocked back and take reduced damage. (Joule’s old A in projectile form. Her A used to knock non-stunned enemies away from her instead of slowing them.). If inside a wall, the boulder is instead launched out of the wall and hits the first enemy hit, stunning them and dealing AOE damage to nearby enemy heroes as well as slowing them. This part of the ability uses up 25 mana. (For clarification, the range of this wall ability starts when the projectile LEAVES the wall, so if the wall you’re in is very long, then the range of the ability is drastically increased)
B: Earth Wall
Ola’I raises the earth around him to form a wall. Walls created by this passive break vision, block projectiles, can be dash through, and can be used with Ola’I’s passive. The length of the wall is fixed. The way this ability is used from a gameplay standpoint is that an area around Ola’I is selected, then an area around the chosen point is selected for the direction the wall will go (This ability will not cancel Ola’I’s movement when selecting points and on PC think of it like using WarHawk’s ult regardless of whether or not you use quick cast). (Similar to Anivia’s W from League). This ability may be used while inside a wall and can combine with map walls.
Ult: Earth Shaker
Ola’I channels for a few seconds, causing the ground around him to crumble, slowing enemies in the area. After channeling, the ground erupts, knocking up and damaging enemies in the AOE. If Ola’I is currently in a wall, instead the ult turns into Living Meteor, causing Ola’I to dash towards any exit (You will choose the direction in which you will go and dash until you reach an exit, so the range is the entire wall you’re in) and upon exiting, Ola’I will leap out. Upon touchdown, Ola’I will immediately cause the ground to erupt with a smaller AOE, but dealing more damage. After this ability is used, Ola’I’s mana is set to 0 due to the sheer amount of energy used for this ability. (Similar to how Adagio’s ult works. However, more comparable to Ymir’s ultimate in SMITE)
Just a quick little hero I just thought of like an hour ago (Less actually) :^)
