Champion Spotlight - Diablo (2021 Update)




About Diablo
An unrivaled alchemist and a member of Spanish nobility, Esteban Corazon de Ablo uses his arcane concoctions to lengthen his life, incinerate his foes and more. Driven by an unending desire to become as powerful as a god, Diablo now finds himself in The Contest hoping to secure the ISO-Sphere for his continued experimentation. Ambition pushes the Spanish nobleman to acquire power at all costs, and very few heroes can, or will, stand in his way.


Diablo's Mechanics

    The King of potions has returned to The Contest with a fresh face! Using his Special 2 and Special 1, combined with Medium 2 and Heavy Attack, stack as many Poisons as you can on the opponent for some massive damage over time! His brand new Pre-fights give Diablo pin-point precision on what kind of utility he needs at the drop of a hat!

    Umm... so what does it mean when it says you can only use 1 sp3 per fight? Does it mean the second sp3 won’t have an effect? Or will his power be locked at 2 bars? Or will he just automatically throw an sp2 even if he has 3 bars of power?

    Not sure why the Dev Note on the Sp3 is missing here, but on the Mcoc Website's Spotlight it mentions being able to combo Sp2 into Sp1 by using 3 Bars of Power. I assume this means after using an Sp3 we'll be able to build up to 3 Bars of Power but using the Special Button will activate the Sp2 then Consume 2 Bars of Power leaving 1 Bar of Power able to be used immediately after.

    Would it be possible to include sig scaling data in spotlights like this? A graph, or just the functions; either would be super nice to see.

    Can’t wait for this, Took him to r2 In anticipation. I feel like he’s gonna have a fairly easy to use playstyle and will be healing almost always if played right.

    His is gonna be Amazing with Suicides from all that Healing, 100% Poison Resist so you take no Poison Damage, but always Heal off Willpower and his Base Healing, then you can Heal off Specials to deal with Recoil, as well the Suicide Poison will Always have that 30% Damage Reduction off the Sig Ability active...

    Does a heavy refresh the poisons from the sp3?

    The only way to refresh poisons is with an sp2

    That's what I thought but when watching some YT videos, the border timer on the poison debuff would restart when the attacker threw a heavy, and the total poisons would increase. I'm prolly just misunderstanding the timer. Thanks.
