Without directly increasing their damage, how would you buff a "niche" character?

As in someone with unique abilities or utility that is remarkably (if not only) useful in very rare circumstances IN COMPARISON to other champs. This means champs like Iron Fist, who is useful in most scenarios, have much better counterparts (Medusa for armor break, SS to nullify buffs, She Hulk who has identical base attack rating, etc).

********

Personally, I'd go Crossbones. I would:

* Increase Overrun's duration by 1/4

* Decrease its cooldown by 1/4

* Make every 7 or 8 furies combine into 1 permanent passive fury (indirect damage boost)

* Increase odds of sig ability activating either during overrun or based on # of furies

    -Overcharge lasts 0.15 seconds longer per battery charge.

    -While in overcharge mode, all abilities that drain the battery drain 90% less charges.

    -Once the battery reaches zero, increase power gain by 50% for 7 seconds.

    Interesting challenge. Okay, let's go with the example: Iron Fist. I would add a new effect to heavy attacks: if the target has two or more armor break debuffs, heavy attacks have a 25% chance to remove two armor break debuffs and replace them with a Disrupt Chi passive which reduces armor, critical rating, and critical damage rating. This passive effect lasts 20 seconds but is lost if the target lands an attack that makes contact with Iron Fist. If awakened, this passive effect's duration increases up to 40 seconds based on signature level. If the Disrupt Chi passive effect is stacked, it also reduces the ability accuracy for buffs by 33% for each stack after the first passive effect.

    Dorm just seems like he performed one rank lower than he is. Truly a champ that just doesn’t have enough horsepower under the hood. After all the nerfs he deserves a little something something lol.
