Hero Concept: Rakanishu

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Rakanishu
Universe: Diablo 2
Role: Bruiser
Subrole: Hit and Run, high health pool, deals damage through tanking.

SKILLS:

Passive: Lightning Enchanted - Every time this hero receives non-periodic damage, release 4 bolts of charged lightning.

(Q) Spiked Club - After a 1 second charge up, attack target and slow them by 50% for .75 seconds. Immobile during charge up. (melee range ability)

(W) Flesh Wound - Activate to reduce incoming physical damage by 80% for 2 seconds.

(E) Scurry - Increase movement speed by 100% for 3 seconds. Every 4th basic attack to Rakanishu knocks him back slightly while scurry is activated.

Ultimates:

(R) Tiny Spark - For 3 seconds gain 80 armor and store up all charges of Lightning Enchantment. Upon expiration release all received damage and stored charges of Lightning Enchantment at once.

(R) Demon Hug- Gain 30 armor and jump on the target hero for 3.5 seconds. The target receives 300 damage over the duration and is silenced. You have no control over your hero for the duration and you are locked onto target.

Possible Talents:

(16) Hit and Run- If spiked club successfully hits a hero, reset the cooldown of scurry.

Conclusion: Rakanishu does not do the majority of his damage through basic attacks, but by reflecting damage dealt to him through Lightning Enchantment. The long charge up time of Spiked Club incentivizes the player to move behind his/her target to secure to hit while also maximizing the potential of Lightning Enchantment. The passive style of dealing damage by tanking encourages a different style of play that focuses heavily on positioning and absorbing attacks. This also gives the enemy team an interesting choice... do they engage the hero and risk doing more damage to their own team in the long run?

Vulnerabilities: Burst ranged magic damage.
Good copy pasta
Bamboozled or should i say *rips off mask* Carbot.
Rakanishu would be sick though. Brings back memories. Only if they make him small though (very small)

Literally has not a single ability in common with Carbot's design. Just because its the same character doesn't mean its a rip-off. And its not like Carbot made the character or was the first person to bring it up.
