Drift The Tenno Of Snow

Recommended Posts

Drift is a female tenno of snow (frost i feel is ice not snow) she is not a tank and is more of a caster, her abilities benefit against enemies suffering from frozen damage

 

Ability 1: Snowflake Shurikens: Drift sends out snowflake like shurikens in an arc in front of her damaging all opponents, any opponents suffering from freeze damage become frozen and explode, an exploding enemy will also stagger and slightly damage nearby enemies.

 

Ability 2: Snow Clone: Drift creates a clone of her out of snow similar to loki's decoy, but it does not have as much health enemies attacking the clone will suffer freezing and the freezing damage debuff, though they can only be damaged by the ability once.

 

Ability 3: Snow Fall: a utility skill Drift jumps like Excalibur's super jump but not as high or as far, but she leaves a trail of falling snow behind her any enemies that are caught in or walk through that trail are frozen and unable to move but will eventually thaw out they can take damage from other sources though.

 

Ability 4: Blizzard somewhat similar to avalance but Drift fires a blizzard in a line infront of her, enemies hit by it will be frozen then explode explode damaging nearby enemies as if they were hit by her first ability

You said it yourself. "This would be like/similar".

So that means we don't need it, already in game.

 

And Frost uses snow in avalanche, making your snow theme unecessary. Also, it's named "Snow Globe", right?

Nice Ice-Snow theme  difference, but the powers needs more thinking. Frost is Ice, so he insta-freezes one guy into ice, sends a row of ice spikes, creates a house out of a giant ice dome, and splatters everyone around him with large balls of ice. Drift is snow, right? Snow can't do the same cuts as Ice can, but give it time and it'll pile on and slow everything, even crushing stuff under its weight.

 

1: Cone spell, multihit, CC freezes, frozen enemy that dies deals secondary damage probably trigger a cascade. All for 25 energy? Must have a long chanelling time if it does because it's too good.

(Remove the secondary explosion damage, it becomes like Sonic Boom, but freezes. Less "large spinny ice death" and more snow-like)

 

2: Like Subzero's ice-shadow, touch it and you get frozen. Anyone who touches it gets slowed, first guy gets frozen. Okay, awesome. But you have to touch it, meaning melee. And not all enemies are going to rush in and melee, most are just going to gun it down, and it has less durability than Loki's Decoy or Saryn's Moult so it'll be gunned down fast. It's a quick getaway skill when you're surrounded by melee enemies, sure.

(I'd make it more like Ice Wave's counterpart, where it flings a snowball that explodes on impact and deals enough freeze damage in an AOE to be compared to Ice Wave)

 

3: Utility, CC but in a straight line. Again the only ones who chase after you are melee units, you'll still get gunned down the moment you land from the leap.

(Drift leaps forward to whatever reticule is pointing at that is within the skill's maximum range, creating snow while leaping, and covers the drop point with a blanket of snow. Slows everyone in the AOE, you get to run away from the melee mob haraguing you and also slows down the team of Lancers gunning you down)

 

4: Like her 1, but even narrower. I guess the upside would be it goes through walls, travels a godawesome range, and deals absolutely stupid amount of damage?

(Frost already took Avalanche as an Uber name? Doesn't matter, you still have Blizzard: creates a snowstorm that freezes enemies in its cast radius, a few moments delay after freezing, they explode, dealing high amounts of damage in a small AOE around each statue. The delay allows more melee mobs to converge to your location and get among the statues, thus providing more targets before dealing the actual damage.)

"Like" in element not concept, frost is a tank this is a caster, also drift is female offering a gender alternative to players

also even though the names are snow globe and avalanche snowglobe creates a shield of Ice not snow and avalanche flash freezes which is what happens when you are exposed to ice for so long snow takes longer for an organisms body to freeze solid since there is more air separating the water molecules and in scientific terms, snow is frozen atmospheric vapor as ice is just frozen water.

 

as for redoing some of the skills

redo for 1 :if an enemy under frozen dmg defuff is killed he slows nearby enemies instead of damaging them

 

For 2 i meant any damage melee or range would apply the frozen damage debuff i did not mean to make it so vague in the original text

 

redo for 3:when drift jumps any enemies close to her take off point or when she lands are slowed enemies at the lnding point are also slightly damaged.

 

for 4 : yes sorry i did not clarify the target  is smaller than her 1 but the range is incredibly long and will go through cover.
