Second time I've played this game in a 5 month or so break. Whenever I recorded that Viyana vid. Heard that they changed the map, added in a bunch of new stuff, added in new shapers. Thought it was time to play again.. And there is quite a bit that I want to try out. Faris, Marah, them adding in more junglers just made me squee. But I do a lot better with tanky characters, and Kahgen looked like he had better initiation then Marah.
Kahgen is a tanky intiator. His ult is his initiation. I'll explain it more in a bit.
His Q is an AOE on-self and applies "Spirit Sands", which his Q does more damage the more stacks of Spirit Sands there are. His W is a basic, cast AOE slow. The closer to the center you are, the more you are slowed. It also applies a stack of Spirit Sands every second. His E is a frontal conical damaging stun. Without any stacks, it stuns for about .5 seconds, with an additional .25 seconds for each stack of Spirit Sands. Spirit Sands can only stack up to 5 times. His Ult is a take on the Blitz/Pudge pull. It does damage on the way out, slowing down enemies that were hit. On the hook's way back, it drags everything back towards Kahgen. So in other words, as long as you don't get hit by the pull-back, you aren't going to be dragged back. Simple dashes or Blink can save you from it, even if you took damage from the hook, if you can react fast enough.
And this was an awesome match, bravo for everyone involved. It's rare for me to be in a competitive match in Dawngate, it's usually an easy roll for one side.
