Complete buff designs for classic champions

MagrailothosMagrailothos Posts: 5,456 ★★★★★
This is a thread of updates for some of the oldest, classic champions in the game.

We all know why they need it, so I won't dwell on that.

I've aimed to keep it simple with all of these designs, as it seems Kabam are intending for the classic champions to be targeted at early players. It should be possible for skilled players to get more damage or utility out of most of these redesigns; however, they aren't really intended to compete with modern champions. So if you want a new Iron Man who will dominate the current meta, don't expect to find him here!

Also, to reduce the coding workload on the buff team: (1) their new abilities should largely utilise mechanisms that already exist within the game, and (2) we need to avoid animation updates unless they are essential and can ideally be repurposed from another champion (e.g. giving Black Widow the Heavy attack from BWDO)

So with those provisos, I'm planning to post some simple redesigns for some of the oldest champions, making them useful for early gamers; and hopefully even a bit of fun for later players with resources to spare on 'luxury' rank-ups.

    Iron Man

    Iron Man's update is intended to make him reminiscent of how he was in the first few MCU Movies - tough, useful, but obviously not as advanced as IMIW.

    Armour
    Iron Man has a permanent Armour Up buff granting +2400 Armour. If removed for any reason it respawns after ten seconds.
    Having resolved the 'Ice problem', Iron Man is immune to Coldsnap and Frostbite effects whilst he has an Armour buff
    Iron Man has additional Critical resistance (+450) in his base stats, and gains +125 more for each Armour Up buff he has.

    JARVIS
    JARVIS is Just A Really Very Intelligent System which enhances Iron Man's Special Attacks, defenses, and assists with his offense. Iron Man gains +280 Critical Rating, and +160 Critical Damage Modifier whilst JARVIS is active.
    Each time the opponent triggers Evade, JARVIS's auto-targetting algorithms passively give Iron Man a flat 10% chance to bypass their Evade abilities in future, to a maximum of 100%.
    When Iron Man is struck, JARVIS has a 25% chance to trigger an additional Armour Up buff granting +550 Armour for 7 seconds. This chance rises to 90% when he is struck with a Critical Hit from non-cosmic opponents.
    JARVIS is disabled when Iron Man is under the effects of Armour Break. Additionally, Critical hits from Cosmic opponents disable JARVIS for 8 seconds.

    Special Attacks
    Iron Man's powerful repulsor beam attacks gain +950 Block penetration, and +550 Armour penetration.
    If JARVIS is active, Beam attacks also gain +1550 Critical Rating, and can strike with Critical hits through block.
    • SP1: 70% chance to Armour Break (2250 for 8 seconds). If striking the opponents block, 50% chance to trigger an Armour break debuff of 50% Potency (1125 for 8 seconds).
    • SP2: 80% chance to Armour Break.
      (3150 for 12 seconds). If striking the opponents block, 60% chance to trigger an Armour break debuff of 50% Potency (1575 for 12 seconds).
      Critical Hits inflict burst Energy damage equal to 70% of the damage inflicted.
    • SP3: Inflict Power Lock for nine seconds, and Armour Break (4480 for 18 seconds). If JARVIS is active, also activate a Fury buff granting +45% Attack for 12 seconds.
    Signature
    Arc Overload - once per fight, when dropping below 15% health, activate a Regeneration buff recovering 16298 health. If JARVIS is active, also remove any damaging debuffs, and activate 4.0 additional Armour Up buffs (rounded down).

    Vision (Age of Ultron)

    Attack 2301
    Health 31398


    Robotics
    Vision is immune to bleed and poison effects. Being constructed from resilient Vibranium, Vision benefits from +1250 Physical resistance and +650 Critical resistance

    Mind Stone
    Possessing the Mind Stone renders Vision immune to reverse controls, and his Ability accuracy cannot be passively reduced.

    Phasing
    When the opponent launches a Special attack other than SP3, Vision activates his Phase abilities for the duration of their Special attack. Phasing removes Root effects and all Armour break debuffs, and grants Vision a 100% chance for Physical attacks to Miss, with 35% chance for Energy attacks to Miss. Psychic attacks do not Miss.
    Striking the opponent from Phase during their Special recovery window grants Vision +1350 Critical Rating.
    If he becomes Rooted for some other reason, Vision will briefly activate Phase after 0.5s.

    Signature
    Power theft (Unchanged from current version)

    Special attacks
    Vision's Special Attacks cannot Miss.
    If an opponent is reduced to zero power, they lose all Prowess and are inflicted with a Heal Block debuff for 10 seconds.
    Note: The SP1 and SP2 now inflict ordinary damage in addition to their Power Burn damage.
    • SP1 - This attack deals True Energy damage, bypassing all armour and resistances. It also Power Burns the opponent for 39% of their maximum power.
    • SP2 - Vision becomes Hyperdense for a moment, leading this attack to deal Physical damage, ignore all positive Physical resistance and be Unblockable. It Power burns the opponent for 100% of their maximum power.
    • SP3 - This attack Power Burns the opponent for 45% of their maximum power. It also Inflicts a burst of Energy for 6351 damage. This is True damage, bypassing all armour and resistances.
    Synergies
    Are you familiar with the Ship of Theseus? (Vision Classic/Vision AoU)
    Vision develops his Technopathy, leading robots other than Vision to suffer -66% Ability Accuracy.

    Armour Burst
    'That which Smashes' is more than a mortal weapon. When Thor would inflict Armour break, his opponent also suffers a burst of Direct Physical damage equal to 0.1% of his Attack rating per point of Armour Break.
    If the opponent resists the Armour Break due to an Immunity, this burst damage is increased by 50%.

    Cyclops

    The leader of the X-men, Cyclops's tactical skills are legendary. Cyclops inflicts ever-increasing stacks of Armour break on the opponent, eventually reducing even the strongest-armoured opponent to dust.

    Attack 2301

    Moon Knight

    This version of Moon Knight is somewhat inspired by the MCU version, who has some mystical abilities such as being able to see invisible monsters. For simplicity, I've removed most of his varying-through-the-month abilities.

    Cloaked in the shadows of the night, all basic attacks have a 4% chance to Miss. Projectile basic attacks have a 10% chance to Miss. This does not trigger on a well-timed block.

    Heavy Attacks

    If other effects or abilities are impacting the opponent's Combat Power, this ability cannot reduce it below 10%.

    Critical Hits
    Moon Knight's Critical hits have an 80% chance to inflict bleed, 1495 damage over 3 seconds.

    Fist of Khonshu
    Eclipse charges
    - When he interrupts the opponent's Heavy attack or strikes them whilst recovering from a Special attack, Moon Knight gains an Eclipse charge which expires after five seconds.

    Solstice charges - When he Intercepts his opponents Dash attack, Moon Knight gains a Solstice charge which expires after five seconds. Whilst he has a Solstice charge, Moon Knight gains +767 Attack, Unstoppable opponents react as though they weren't Unstoppable when struck, and Moon Knight becomes passively Unstoppable whilst charging his Heavy attack.

    Gaining Eclipse or Solstice charges has a seven-second cooldown after the charge expires.

    @Magrailothos Wow, this is pretty impressive! A lot of great additions and changes.

    - One thing, if I can add some input, is to create a little more differences between the Caps, Visions, and Cyclops. Only reason is with the abilities listed, their playstyles will be extremely similar if not the same (Cap to Cap would be the same, Vision to Vision would be the same, and Cyclops to Cyclops would be the same).

    - Also, what was the reason for making Thor's armor breaks so much weaker than they are now? Do you feel the physical burst damage he will inflict on heavies will compensate for that? If you keep it lowered, I might say change it to 10 second duration and pause during heavy charge/ specials.

    Yeah, partly I've kept the 'paired' champs fairly similar because that's what Kabam have done themselves, with the likes of Magneto.

    Similar, but different aspects of their kit was what I was going for. And simplicity.

    Thor's breaks are somewhat weaker because (1) I wanted to make them longer, and (2), I wanted to make him not so dependent on them; and have other avenues of damage: right now, there are increasing champions with Armour break immunity that he's basically powerless against.

    But they aren't that much weaker - notice that he gets +150% Potency at max Signature. So that a standard heavy attack at max Sig would have a Potency of 1125, and would already last 10.4 seconds of inflicted with with a Fury up. And the SP3 armour break becomes 4500 - pretty much identical to what it is now. And it would last a lot longer - fifteen seconds or 19.5 with a Fury up. Compared to his current 7.5 seconds armour break.

    The burst damage: it isn't just on Heavy attacks - it's on every armour break. And can get fairly respectable: The Heavy would be a modest burst of 2792 or 4188 with a Fury buff up. The SP3 armour break would have burst damage of 11,169 or 16,700 with a Fury up.

    If the opponent is armoured but immune to Armour break (like Colossus, or anyone with debuff immunity), then (1) his burst Damage actually increases by 50%, and (2) he's got the ability to 'Remove' all armour on his SP3. It's what Captain Marvel Movie does on her Heavy counter and would be coded as a Nullify.

    Also (for my last trick) his Sig will counter defenders like Nimrod and Rintrah (not that I would recommend taking on Rintrah with him!). Nimrod reduces the Potency of Armour breaks by 100%, which effectively makes them harmless for most Cosmic champions. Awakened Thor gets around that by increasing the Potency back up again. So he'll be about to handle Nimrod in a way most Cosmic champions can't*.

    Hopefully that would all represent some useful utility, whilst still keeping him a very simple champion to play with - pretty much my stated aim for these designs.

    *If you read through Cyclops Red's abilities, he can also start to counter Nimrod in pretty much the opposite way, by reducing the Potency of Nimrod's Armour Ups...

    Thanks for commenting - really appreciated!

    @Magrailothos thank you for the well thought out response! I can tell you really went in depth on the abilities here, not just trying to make them OP but also trying to fit them in where others don't. You have set the bar high for future posts, I'll be looking out for them! :smile:

    Dr Strange

    Probably the least 'simple' buff (because he's got different abilities to describe in his three Blessing phases), Dr Strange will have a lot more utility here: Buff control in Blessing 1, Damage in Blessing 2, and Power control in Blessing 3. He's also one of buffs here that should be most friendly to Summoners running Recoil Masteries; with Life Steal, Bleed resistance and a reduced Recoil penalty. He still might want to avoid getting hit too much, though.

    Health 24826
    Attack 2189


    Passive
    Dr Strange is immune to Nullify, Stagger, Neutralise and Fate Seal.

    Dr Strange benefits from +1400 Energy Resistance, but has zero base armour.

    Dr Strange inflicts Energy damage on all his Attacks.

    Dr Strange does not gain power from being stuck, or striking his opponent. He passively gains power at a rate of one bar over nine seconds.

    Dr Strange's exceptional Mystic training reduces the damage penalty of Recoil by 25%.

    On a fourth light attack, if Dr Strange had a Special 2 or 3 available, the highest Special is disabled for 0.5s.

    Like Ant-Man (Future) this will allow Dr Strange considerable control over which Special he throws, and during which Blessing. This should prove particularly helpful for a champ with Passive Power Gain.

    Nullify abilities
    When interrupting the opponents Heavy attack with his own, Dr Strange has an 80% chance to Nullify one buff, or to Stagger the opponent for 8s if no buff is currently active.

    When Dr Strange Nullifies any buff, he gains an indefinite Mystical Energy passive granting +10% Special Attack damage (max ten).
    Unless otherwise specified, Mystical Energy passives are consumed at the end of his Special Attacks.


    Mystic Blessings:
    Dr Strange invokes a series of Vishanti blessings to counter his opponents; starting with Oshtur's Refuge. Each lasts nine seconds and then cycles to the next blessing.

    By dashing back and holding block for 1.8s, Dr Strange can reset the timer on his current blessing. The timer can only be reset once per Blessing.

    Each Mystical Energy passive increases the potency of the buffs/benefits of Dr Strange's Mystical Blessings by 10%, to a maximum of +100%

    Oshtur's Refuge (OR)
    • Gain an Armour Up buff granting +800 Armour and Critical Resistance
    • Gain a Block proficiency buff granting +800 Block proficiency
    • Reduce damage from all bleed effects to zero
    Hoggoth's Wisdom (HW)
    • Gain a Fury buff granting +1095 Attack
    • Gain a Precision buff granting +550 Critical Rate
    • Attacks inflict a burst of Energy damage equal to 25% of the damage dealt
    Agamotto's Insight (AI)
    • Life Steal 504 Health on every hit
    • Opponent's defensive combat Power rate is reduced by 40%
    • MLLM combo: Power Steal 5% of Opponents Maximum Power

    Punisher

    As a trophy champion, it's important not to make Punisher too overpowered or desirable, since he's not easily acquirable at higher rarities.
    (It would be great for that to change - there's been arenas once or twice over the years...)
    This is a fairly simple expansion of his current kit; building on his Open wounds ability, adding classic Skill abilities, and with no complicated rotation. Essentially: if it bleeds, he can kill it...

    Attack 2301
    Health 31398

    Passive

    Punisher starts the fight with four stacks of passive Physical resistance, each granting +283 Physical resistance. Being stuck eight times causes one stack to fall off.

    Punisher has a 15% chance to Purify any debuff after 0.5s

    Punisher gains the benefits of Willpower mastery, at rank 1.
    If the Summoner has points in Willpower, add a flat 10% chance to Punisher's shrug-off Ability Accuracy for each point in Willpower.

    All Attacks
    10% chance to trigger Fury for +1150 attack for five seconds.

    If a bleed fails due to an immunity, 33% chance to trigger Fury.

    Each time Fury triggers, increase the duration by 5%, to a maximum of 100%.

    When the opponent bleeds
    Each stack of bleed currently on the opponent adds +10% to the duration of any new bleeds (max +100%)

    Each stack of bleed on the opponent reduces their Ability accuracy by 7.5%, and grants Punisher +95 Critical damage Modifier when he hits them.

    When any bleed expires, there is a 25% chance it will convert to an Open Wounds, plus a flat 2.5% per bleed on the opponent.

    Open Wounds are permanent passives that count as a stack of bleed for Punisher's other abilities, but deal no damage. Max stacks ten.

    Heavy Attacks
    Heavy attacks gain +65 Critical rating per bleed on the opponent, and have a 60% chance to convert any bleed debuffs into Open Wounds.
    If the opponent is already at max stacks of Open Wounds, instead refresh one bleed debuff.

    Special attacks
    • SP1 - 80% chance for bullets to inflict bleed for 2646 damage over five seconds
    • SP2 - This attack gains +460 Attack for each stack of bleed on the Opponent when it is launched.
      Each hit has a 50% chance to Inflict Bleed for 2646 damage over five seconds
    • SP3 - This attack gains up to +2301 Attack based on lost health, and +460 Attack for each stack of bleed on the Opponent.
      Inflict two stacks of bleed for 3727 damage over 5s.
      Inflict Incinerate for 3727 damage over 12 seconds
    Signature:
    Endure Pain

    When Punisher's health is below 20%, increase the Ability accuracy of his debuff shrug-off by a flat +20-50%
    Additionally, once per fight: When receiving a lethal blow, 40-99.6% chance to survive, and trigger an Indestructible passive for 8s.

    It's sad how you put all of your time and effort into these concepts but at the end of the day groot is going to be groot and Cap is going to be cap. I hope kabam atleast responds to your concepts though. High hopes! :)

    Rhino

    This version of Rhino is what Kabam would call a momentum-based champion; like Dragon Man and Annihilus. He's intended to be extremely simple to play, although with the potential to be more rewarding in the hands of a skilled player, and there is a little utility tucked away. The best playstyle is going to largely involve charging your opponent into the corner and keeping them there; and if you line up the debuffs right, he should have an pretty effective ability to spam Heavy attacks when he does. He'll also have access to a fairly hard-hitting SP2 if he works for it a little.

    Attack 2346
    Health 38837

    Passive
    Rhino Armour grants +1100 Physical Resistance and +450 Critical Resistance. When struck with a Critical Hit, Rhino reduces the opponent's critical damage rating by 60%.
    Whilst he is Unstoppable, Rhino is immune to Stun.

    All Attacks
    When struck or when striking the opponent, Rhino has a 10% chance to trigger a non-stacking Fury (+1360 attack for seven seconds).
    When Rhino strikes the opponent with a second Medium whilst they are pinned against the wall, 100% chance to trigger Fury.
    • When Fury is triggered by striking the opponent, inflict a Physical Vulnerability debuff (-320 Physical Resistance for 10s). Max 3 stacks.
    • Inflicting a Physical Vulnerability debuff pauses existing Physical Vulnerability debuffs for three seconds.
    When Evaded, or on Missing the opponent
    65% chance to trigger Fury and gain a Passive Unstoppable for 1 second. Each point the Summoner has in the Unfazed Mastery adds a flat 10% to this chance.

    Dash Attacks
    Dash attacks are Unstoppable and have an 8% chance to be Unblockable. Gains +4% flat chance Vs Size M, and +8% Vs Size S opponents.

    Heavy Attacks
    Heavy attacks generate 15% less Power in the opponent per unique debuff on them, to a maximum of three.
    Heavy attacks Pause any Physical Vulnerability or Trauma debuffs for three seconds. Cooldown of six seconds.

    Rhino Rampage
    • Generate one indefinite Rampage charge when striking the opponent with an Unstoppable or Heavy attack.
    • Generate one charge when triggering a Fury buff
    • Generate one per bar of Power spent when striking the opponent with a Special Attack.
    • Lose 1 charge every four seconds if Rhino doesn't hit the opponent
    • Lose 10 charges if struck by the opponent's SP3
    Unawakened, Rhino can stack up to ten Rampage charge.

    Rhino's Rampage charges each grant the following benefits:
    • +155 Attack
    • +85 Block penetration
    • +10% chance to break the opponents block with a Heavy Attack*
    • Increase the chance that an opponent will throw a Special Attack by 3%
    *What's the point of this ability? Well, certain champs (those running 'Stand Your Ground', Mole Man, or Peni Parker, for example) have the ability to resist being knocked down by Heavy attacks. Rhino can Rampage right through them...

    Signature Ability:
    Rhino's maximum Rampage charges rise to 20. Additionally, Rampage charges increase his Offensive Ability Accuracy by 2% per stack.

    Special Attacks
    • SP1: 70% chance to inflict Disorient (reducing Defensive Ability Accuracy and Block Proficiency by 50%) for nine seconds
      70% chance to inflict Suppression, reducing defensive combat Power by 50% for eight seconds.
    • SP2: Trigger Rhino's Fury effect twice. Also, this attack gains the following additional benefits per Rampage counter:
      +310 Attack
      +72 Critical Rating
      +85 Armour Penetration
      With 12 or more Rampage counters, this attack is Unblockable
      All Rampage counters are consumed at the end of this attack.
    • SP3: Inflict a Crush debuff (opponent is unable to block) for 7.5 seconds
      Inflict a Trauma debuff for five seconds (all attacks inflict a burst of Physical damage equal to 50% of the damage dealt)
    Synergies

    Nova - When Nova is above 50 Nova charges, Dash attacks have a 20% chance to activate an Unblockable buff for 1 second.
    Rhino - Dash attacks gain +10% Attack, and +50% Ability Accuracy

    Science Experiments (Luke Cage)
    Luke Cage - Light combo-enders have a 100% chance to inflict an Exhaustion debuff for 10 seconds.

    STAR LORD

    Here's my attempt to give Star Lord a bit more utility whilst keeping just a hint of the unreliability that gives him a bit of balance. I've tried to keep him fairly simple, borrowing a mechanic from Ronin to select his Element gun effects. As this Star Lord can control his Element gun, has a combo shield and a forcefield for a bit of utility, I've actually reduced the damage his Element gun debuffs can inflict or he'd be a bit crazily OP...

    Attack 2301
    Health 31398

    All Attacks:
    12% chance to trigger a Fury buff for 6.5 seconds, granting +1045 Attack.

    Ravager Tech:
    By dashing back and holding block for 1.8 seconds, Star Lord can activate his personal Ravager forcefield. This generates an Armour Up Buff granting +2250 Armour for 14 seconds.
    Whilst active, this force field grants Immunity to Armour Break, Armour Shattered, and Reversed Controls.
    When the Ravager Armour buff is lost, it can't be reactivated for six seconds.

    Element Gun:
    Star Lord cycles through the settings on his Element Gun as he strikes with Light Attacks. The Element gun can't discharge the same element twice in succession: it will initially cycle though four options, then after being fired, it will cycle through the remaining three options. There is a 7.5% chance for the gun to misfire at random from the other available elements with +25% Potency. Misfire is unaffected by any Ability Accuracy effects.
    Damage Type: Earth setting inflicts Physical damage, whilst other settings inflict Energy damage.
    Damage limits: The damage inflicted by Shock and Incinerate debuffs scales with Star Lord's Attack at the start of the fight. They are therefore increased by boosts, synergies and nodes, but not by his Signature ability.
    • Water - Power Burn 40% of the opponent's Maximum Power. This attack also removes up to ten stacks of Prowess.
    • Air - Shock the opponent for 6492 damage over four seconds. If the opponent is not immune to Shock, 75% chance to Stun them for 2.5 seconds.
    • Fire - Incinerate the opponent for 6492 damage over ten seconds. This removes Perfect Block, and reduces the opponent's Block proficiency by 50%.
    • Earth - Inflict one stack of Armour Break (-550 Armour for nine seconds) and Petrify the opponent for 12 seconds, 80% Potency.
    Special Attacks
    If he hits the opponent with a Special Attack, Star Lord has a 70% chance to trigger a Precision buff granting +1200 Critical Rating for ten seconds.
    • SP1 - 40% chance to inflict Stun for 2 seconds. When this attack intercepts a charging opponent, gain +30% Attack and a flat +50% chance to inflict Stun.
    • SP2 - Discharge the Element Gun once.
    • SP3 - Star Lord discharges the Element Gun on Maximum Power - effects rise in Potency by 50%.
    Signature ability: Tactitian
    For every hit on his combo meter, to a maximum of 400, Star Lord gains +117 Attack and +33.7 block proficiency.
    Star Lord gains a Combo shield passive every ten hits, to a maximum of 6. Each time he is struck, one combo shield is removed and his combo reduces by 5.

    Synergies

    We're the Guardians of the Galaxy, B****! (Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Drax)

    - For each synergy member present, each gains +2% Perfect Block, +65 Critical Rating and +5% Buff Duration
    - If four or more members are present, all synergy members gain a permanent +25% Prowess passive.

    Dance-off, Bro (Ronan the Accuser, Venompool)
    Ronan: Against #Heroes, Fury duration and ability Accuracy are increased by 50%. Against #Villains, Fury is replaced by a Precision buff granting +1200 Critical Rating.
    Star Lord: Dodging the opponents attacks Inflicts Taunt for 4.5 seconds, cooldown 15 seconds. Taunted opponents suffer -25% Attack, and are 60% more likely to use a Special Attack.
    Venompool: If Venompool's post-SP2 Dance is interrupted, he gains Unstoppable and Unblockable buffs for 2 seconds. If completed, his Precision passive duration is increased to 13 seconds.

    Daddy Issues (Yondu)
    Star Lord: Yondu upgrades Quill's Ravager Technology to additionally grant Regeneration of 3% of Star Lord's maximum health when triggered.
    Yondu: All attacks have a 10% chance to place a non-stacking Suppression debuff, reducing the opponent's Combat Power by 15% for six seconds.

    Murderous Intent (Thanos)
    Star Lord gains +20% Attack against Larger opponents.
    Thanos: When striking the opponent with a Special Attack, Thanos's personal Heal Block ability is altered to a ten-second Petrify debuff, reducing Regeneration and Power Gain by 150%.

    Galactic Adventurers (Nova)
    Nova: If Nova's Fury buff is consumed, stolen or Nullified, it has a 60% charge to immediately respawn. Cool-down three seconds.
    Star Lord: Star Lord starts the fight with his personal Fury and Precision buffs active for ten seconds.

    Iron Man

    Iron Man's update is intended to make him reminiscent of how he was in the first few MCU Movies - tough, useful, but obviously not as advanced as IMIW.

    Armour
    Iron Man has a permanent Armour Up buff granting +2400 Armour. If removed for any reason it respawns after ten seconds.
    Having resolved the 'Ice problem', Iron Man is immune to Coldsnap and Frostbite effects whilst he has an Armour buff
    Iron Man has additional Critical resistance (+450) in his base stats, and gains +125 more for each Armour Up buff he has.

    JARVIS
    JARVIS is Just A Really Very Intelligent System which enhances Iron Man's Special Attacks, defenses, and assists with his offense. Iron Man gains +280 Critical Rating, and +160 Critical Damage Modifier whilst JARVIS is active.
    Each time the opponent triggers Evade, JARVIS's auto-targetting algorithms passively give Iron Man a flat 10% chance to bypass their Evade abilities in future, to a maximum of 100%.
    When Iron Man is struck, JARVIS has a 25% chance to trigger an additional Armour Up buff granting +550 Armour for 7 seconds. This chance rises to 90% when he is struck with a Critical Hit from non-cosmic opponents.
    JARVIS is disabled when Iron Man is under the effects of Armour Break. Additionally, Critical hits from Cosmic opponents disable JARVIS for 8 seconds.

    Special Attacks
    Iron Man's powerful repulsor beam attacks gain +950 Block penetration, and +550 Armour penetration.
    If JARVIS is active, Beam attacks also gain +1550 Critical Rating, and can strike with Critical hits through block.

    • SP1: 70% chance to Armour Break (2250 for 8 seconds). If striking the opponents block, 50% chance to trigger an Armour break debuff of 50% Potency (1125 for 8 seconds).
    • SP2: 80% chance to Armour Break.
      (3150 for 12 seconds). If striking the opponents block, 60% chance to trigger an Armour break debuff of 50% Potency (1575 for 12 seconds).
      Critical Hits inflict burst Energy damage equal to 70% of the damage inflicted.
    • SP3: Inflict Power Lock for nine seconds, and Armour Break (4480 for 18 seconds). If JARVIS is active, also activate a Fury buff granting +45% Attack for 12 seconds.
    Signature
    Arc Overload - once per fight, when dropping below 15% health, activate a Regeneration buff recovering 16298 health. If JARVIS is active, also remove any damaging debuffs, and activate 4.0 additional Armour Up buffs (rounded down).
    In the 1st Avengers movie, Iron Man wasnt harmed by Thor's lightning. Instead he gained power from it. if, in this buff design kit, he extends the duration of shock effects and reduces the potency by 100%. And each he's inflicted with a shock effect, he gains a fury passive equal to 50% -100% attack rating of equal duration. Would this be too OP? Or is the concept idea of it good, but change some percentages and numbers around?

    Green Goblin:

    Goblin should be just as frustrating on defense as always; but I've adjusted a few numbers and abilities to give him some slightly varied utility, and to beef up his damage potential. Whilst he's got general utility for all types of opponents, his chemical weapons (Poison and Disorient gas bombs) are designed to be particularly effective against #Spiderverse opponents.

    Attack 2369
    Health 32008

    Goblin formula

    Green Goblin's altered mental state reduces the duration of Stun effects by 70%
    Green Goblin's Regeneration rate cannot be reduced below zero.

    Madness
    Green Goblin has a 10% chance to gain Madness when attacked, +90% chance on a well-timed block. He also gains a Madness charge any time he is Taunted or Infuriated. Madness charges last 12s. Max stacks four.
    While Goblin has equal or more Madness than Cunning, he passively regenerates up to 60% of damage taken from basic attacks; and reduces the damage caused by bleed and poison effects by 30%
    Additionally, when gaining a Madness charge, 70% chance to trigger a passive Fury granting +782 Attack for 6s.

    Cunning
    When Green Goblin intercepts the opponent's Dash or Heavy attack, he gains Cunning (cooldown 5s). Cunning charges last 12s. Max stacks four.
    On defense Goblin also gains Cunning each time he gains a bar of Power, and Cunning lasts 18s.

    While Goblin has equal or more Cunning than Madness, the opponent generates 40% less Power, and Goblin gains +33% Attack during Special Attacks.

    Spiderverse Heroes
    Against #Spiderverse heroes, the Green Goblin's Cunning and Madness charges last 50% longer. Additionally:
    • Each stack of Cunning reduces the opponent's Evade Ability accuracy by 33%
    • Each stack of Madness reduces the opponent's Miss Ability accuracy by 33%
    Bag of tricks
    The 'Bag of tricks' represents the potential effects of Green Goblin's various attacks.
    Each stack of Madness increases the Potency of Goblin's bag of tricks by 15%.
    Each stack of Cunning increases the duration of Goblin's bag of tricks debuffs by 15%.
    • Power Drain: Drain 10% Max Power
    • Poison: Inflict 4740 Poison damage over 12s. Duration and Potency increases by 50% against #Spiderverse champions.
    • Incinerate: Inflict 4210 Incinerate damage over 6s
    • Armour Break: Inflict Armour Break of -850 Armour for 10s
    • Disorient: Reduce the opponents Block proficiency by 40% and Defensive Ability Accuracy by 60% for 10s. Duration and Potency increases by 50% against #Spiderverse champions.
    Heavy attacks
    60% chance to Inflict Incinerate at 50% Potency

    Special attacks
    SP1: The first microbomb inflicts Disorient. Energy blasts each have 55% chance to inflict Power Drain. Pumpkin bomb inflicts Armour Break.
    SP2: Afterburner inflicts Incinerate. Pumpkin bomb inflicts Poison
    SP3: This pumpkin bomb barrage has a 65% chance to Inflict Poison, Incinerate, Disorient and Armour Break

    Signature ability
    Standard pumpkin bombs on Special attacks have a 40% chance per bar of Power spent to be replaced with a Superbomb with a 100% chance to Inflict Poison, Incinerate, Disorient and Armour Break, with +25% Duration.
    Additionally, each Cunning or Madness charge increases Pumpkin bomb damage by 20%.

    If the opponent is within striking distance, Cap can Parry Non-contact basic attacks.


    If the opponent is using a basic attack, they’re within striking distance. Thought that was a funny specification.

    Yeah, that was due to writing and rewriting - sometimes you start to see what you 'mean' rather than seeing the actual words!

    Essentially, the word 'basic' should be removed from the sentence.

    The phrasing about 'within striking distance' was because I wanted Cap to be able to parry champions like Shuri and Nemo, without being able to parry attacks like Cyclops's optic blasts.

    It was to avoid slightly ridiculous interactions we have at the moment, like Blade being able to defy physics with a well-timed block on Cyclops, which inflicts bleed from across the screen.
