Sovereign's Domination

Sovereign's Domination 2

Innate: Whenever Viego scores an enemy champion Damage rating takedown while alive and within 3 seconds of damaging them, a Mist Wraith spawns from that champion's corpse for 8 seconds. Viego can basic attack a Mist Wraith to consume it: causing him to Flash blink to its location after winding up for 1 second, during which he is Untargetable icon untargetable (except to Turret icon turrets) and Lockout icon 2 unable to act. He then gains Possession and Heal power icon heals himself for 2% (+ 2.5% per 100 bonus AD) (+ 2% per 100 AP) (+ 5% per 100% bonus attack speed) of the target's maximum health.

Sovereign's Domination

Possession: For 10 seconds, Viego assumes the enemy champion's form and gains their basic attacks, basic abilities, items, and base stats (based on Viego's level). He also gains a free cast of Heartbreaker Heartbreaker, which is initially placed on a Cooldown icon 1.5-second cooldown, and Movement speed icon 10% bonus movement speed while facing enemy champions within 2500 units.

Viego cannot use item actives, consumable items, nor the shop during Possession. Casting Heartbreaker Heartbreaker or attacking a Mist Wraith ends Possession immediately.

Viego will preserve his current health percentage between transformations.

▶️   "You will serve!"

Info
  • Viego will copy the possessed champion's ability ranks.
    • Viego cannot level up their abilities with his available skill points.
  • Mist Wraiths will expire when Viego dies, and they will not expire while he is winding up on them.
  • Viego gains the bonus movement speed during possession even while moving towards nearby enemy champions that are Untargetable icon untargetable.
  • Finishing the possessing attack against a Mist Wraith kills it, rewarding Viego an extra 3 Gold 3 as he becomes the target champion.
  • The wind up's Untargetable icon untargetability does not Bullet strikethrough destroy in-flight Projectile projectiles from Turret icon turrets.
  • The possessed champion's abilities do not cost any Mana resource mana or Energy resource energy even if that specific champion normally uses either as a casting resource.
  • The current cooldowns of Viego's abilities will not be reset between transformations.
    • Those of the possessed champion's abilities will be reset between transformations.
    • This does not apply to the following long-cooldown abilities. Viego specifically tracks their proper cooldowns which can be seen via a buff in his hotbar for each when applicable.
  • The passive cooldowns of items are shared between Viego's and the possessed champion's.
    • This does not apply to Lifeline items.(bug)
  • Once possession ends, Viego returns to his normal state and certain effects gained from the possessed champion's abilities will be immediately removed.
  • Viego retains his own summoner spells, trinket item, and runes during possession.
  • Mist Wraiths will still spawn while Viego is in a zombie state.
  • Sovereign's Domination will not summon a Mist Wraith from Command Hallucinate clones.
  • The possession will not expire while Viego is in a Zombie icon zombie state.
    • While in a zombie state, Heartbreaker Heartbreaker is disabled.
    • If Viego enters a zombie state while winding up on a Mist Wraith, the possession will still last its normal duration.(bug)
  • The possession will not end prematurely if Viego enters Revival icon resurrection.
  • The possession will acquire the basic abilities of shapeshifting champions (e.g. Elise's Elise's Spider Form / Human Form Spider Form / Human Form, Jayce's Jayce's Transform Mercury Cannon Transform Mercury Cannon / Transform Mercury Hammer Transform Mercury Hammer, and Nidalee's Nidalee's Aspect of the Cougar Aspect of the Cougar) based on which form they died as.
  • Mist Wraiths are considered Command Hallucinate clones and can only be targeted by Viego.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy champion who owns Dark Seal Dark Seal or Mejai's Soulstealer Mejai's Soulstealer, he will gain their Glory stacks for the possession.
  • As Cull Cull tracks its progress for each player even if they do not possess the item at the time, Viego may discharge stacks for the benefit of 1 Gold 1 each per Minion icon minion kill, and if Viego killed 100 minions possessing Cull Cull, no matter whether bought himself or acquired via a possessed champion's inventory, he receives the 350 Gold 350 payout and can no longer discharge stacks.
    • This entire interaction does not interact with the state of the Cull Cull stacks of the enemy.
    • The stacks shown on the item in the inventory and scoreboard may not update properly, however.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy champion who owns Tear of the Goddess Tear of the Goddess, the stacks it has will be transferred to his Tear of the Goddess Tear of the Goddess if he owns one.
  • If Viego possesses an enemy Bel'Veth Bel'Veth, his attack speed cap will be modified to 90 permanently.(bug)
  • If Viego possesses an enemy K/DA Evelynn K/DA Evelynn, he will still hear Demon Shade's Demon Shade's music upon discarding the possession if he does it while active.(bug)
  • If Viego targets a Mist Wraith while already Untargetable icon untargetable he will become targetable once again during the cast time.(bug)

    Blade of the Ruined King

    Passive: Viego's basic attacks are empowered to deal bonus physical damage On-hit icon on-hit, which has a minimum threshold and is capped at 80 against Monster icon monsters. This damage is affected by Critical strike icon critical strike modifiers.

    Bonus Physical Damage:
    2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6% of target's current health
    Minimum Bonus Damage:
    10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30

    Additionally, his damaging abilities apply a mark to enemies hit for 4 seconds. Viego's next basic attack against a marked target is empowered to consume the mark On-hit icon on-hit to strike a second time, dealing 20% AD (+ 15% AP) physical damage and Heal power icon healing him for 135% of the post-mitigation damage dealt. The healing based on damage dealt is increased to 145% against monsters and reduced to 50% against Minion icon minions.

    The second strike applies On-hit icon on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness and can Critical strike icon critically strike for (175% + 40% 40%) physical damage if the triggering attack does.

    Blade of the Ruined King

    Active: Viego stabs in a line in the target direction that deals physical damage to enemies hit. Blade of the Ruined King deals 20 bonus physical damage against monsters.

    Physical Damage:
    15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+ 70% AD)
     × (1 + 100% critical strike chance)
    Monster Damage:
    35 / 50 / 65 / 80 / 95 (+ 70% AD)
     × (1 + 100% critical strike chance)

    Blade of the Ruined King's passive remains under Possession Possession, and while transformed, the second strike is instead converted to bonus damage on-hit which no longer applies on-hit effects but can still Critical strike icon critically strike (based on possessed stats).

    Info
    • The mark will not be applied to the primary target struck by Heartbreaker Heartbreaker, but it can triggered from it.
    • Blade of the Ruined King's cast time is always 140% of the caster's attack windup time.
      • At base attack speed, Viego's attack windup is 0.25 seconds.
      • An easy formula to calculate the cast time is [ 0.23 seconds divided by total attack speed ].
      • Reducing Viego's attack speed via Cripple icon attack speed reductions also increases Blade of the Ruined King's cast time by the same fraction.
      • It is calculated from Viego's total attack speed after cap (2.5) and floor (0.2), making the maximum possible cast time 1.155 seconds.
      • Blade of the Ruined King's cast time becomes the same as the standard 0.264 seconds cast time for most abilities at 32.6% bonus attack speed.
    • Applies Death Lotus area damage for the thrust, Basic Attack basic damage for the second strike, and Wit's End item proc damage for the bonus damage on-hit.
    • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
    • Viego will not perform the second strike if the first attack was Jax Counter Strike old dodged, Spirit's Refuge blocked, and Blind icon missed.
    • If the second strike hits a dead unit, Viego will still Heal power icon heal based on the post-mitigation damage that he would deal with it.
    • The attacks do not deal the bonus damage against structures.

    Edit

    Spectral Maw

    Spectral Maw

    Active: Viego Channeling icon charges while being Slow icon slowed by 10% for up to 3 seconds to increase Spectral Maw's missile range and Stun icon stun duration over the first second of the channel.

    Spectral Maw can be recast within the duration. If the charge completes without reactivation, Spectral Maw is cancelled and placed on Cooldown icon full cooldown. If the charge is Silence icon interrupted, it will be placed on a 3-second cooldown.

    Recast: Viego hurls a blast of mist in the target direction and Dash dashes a fixed distance in the same direction, though not through terrain. The mist deals magic damage to the first enemy hit and Stun icon stuns them for 0.25 − 1.25 (based on channel time) seconds.

    Magic Damage:
    80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 300 (+ 100% AP)

    Spectral Maw Bladework resets Viego's basic attack timer. Viego can cast any of his abilities during the dash.

    Info
    • The reduced cooldown from the charge will not occur if Spectral Maw's cooldown is already below 3 seconds.
    • The following table refers for interactions while Viego is Channeling icon channeling:

    Harrowed Path

    Harrowed Path

    Active: Viego sends a spectre in the target direction that creates a trail of mist in its wake which lasts 8 seconds. If it hits terrain, the mist will spread further around either side.

    Harrowed Path 2

    While inside the mist, Viego gains Attack speed icon bonus attack speed. If he does not attack or cast abilities, he also gains Movement speed icon bonus movement speed and Ambush 2 camouflage.

    Bonus Attack Speed:
    30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%
    Bonus Movement Speed:
    25 / 27.5 / 30 / 32.5 / 35% (+ 4% per 100 AP)

    Declaring a basic attack or casting an ability will break the camouflage and remove the bonus movement speed, preventing Viego from gaining them again for 1 second, reduced to 0.6 seconds if he recasted Spectral Maw Spectral Maw and increased to 2 seconds if he attacked a Monster icon monster. This duration refreshes on subsequent attacks and ability casts.

    Harrowed Path can be cast during any of Viego's abilities. He cannot gain the camouflage nor bonus movement speed from Harrowed Path for 0.75 seconds after starting the channel of Spectral Maw Spectral Maw, recasting ends this duration prematurely.

    Info
    • The bonus movement speed and camouflage are granted by the same buff.
    • Viego will enter camouflage even while Recalling Recalling.
    • Viego can cast Harrowed Path during the cast time of any ability or spell.
    • Ranking up Harrowed Path while the effect is already active will still immediately improve the bonuses it grants.
    • Harrowed Path can interact with player-generated terrain.
    • Viego can benefit from an enemy's Harrowed Path.
      • PENDING FOR TEST:: Enemy's Harrowed Path grant Viego his ability's bonus or the enemy's.

    Tips & Tricks

    Edit

    Heartbreaker

    Heartbreaker

    Active: Viego gains Unstoppable icon displacement immunity over the cast time, then Flash blinks to the target location. Upon arrival, he strikes the most wounded enemy champion nearby, dealing physical damage, Slow icon slowing them by 99% for 0.25 seconds, and applying On-hit icon on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness. Other nearby enemies are Airborne icon knocked back up to 400-units away based on proximity, though not through terrain.

    Physical Damage:
    12 / 16 / 20% (+ 5% per 100 bonus AD) of target's missing health

    All targets hit are dealt 120% − 240% (based on critical strike chance) AD physical damage.

    If a Possession Possession is discarded, Heartbreaker will be placed on a Cooldown icon 1.5-second cooldown if it is not already on cooldown. Heartbreaker will cast at max range if cast beyond that.

    ▶️   "Isolde!"

    Info
    • Heartbreaker will cast at the edge of its range if the target location is further beyond.
    • Heartbreaker will cast at maximum range from the end of Spectral Maw's Spectral Maw's dash if it is cast during the dash.
    • The knockback speed is 1000 units per second. The airborne is removed as soon as the displacement ends.
      • The maximum airborne duration is therefore 0.4 seconds. The minimum is 0.1 seconds.
    • Applies Disintegrate spell damage to the struck champion and Death Lotus area damage to all other enemies.
    • Viego will enter a 0.25-second cast time if he strikes an enemy champion.
      • After this cast time, he will automatically receive an attack command against that enemy. Previous movement inputs from the player are ignored.(bug)
    • Heartbreaker's strike to the champion can be Jax Counter Strike old dodged and Spirit's Refuge blocked, but not Blind icon missed.
    • Viego will be ordered to basic attack the primary target afterwards.

    Original
    RP 975
    21.01.2021
    Once ruler of a long-lost kingdom, Viego perished over a thousand years ago when his attempt to bring his wife back from the dead triggered the magical catastrophe known as the Ruination. Transformed into a powerful, unliving wraith tortured by an obsessive longing for his centuries-dead queen, Viego now stands as the Ruined King, controlling the deadly Harrowings as he scours Runeterra for anything that might one day restore her, and destroying all in his path as the Black Mist pours endlessly from his cruel, broken heart.

    • Sovereign's Domination Sovereign's Domination (Innate)
      • Innate: Whenever an enemy Champion icon champion is killed by Viego or dies within 3 seconds of being damaged by him, a Mist Wraith spawns from their corpse for 8 seconds. Viego can basic attack a Mist Wraith to possess it, Heal power icon heal himself for 8% (+ 2.5% per 100 bonus AD) (+ 1.5% per 100 AP) (+ 2.5% per 100% bonus attack speed) of the target's maximum health, and Flash blink to its location after winding up for 1 second, during which he is Untargetable icon untargetable (except to Turret icon turrets).
      • Possession lasts for 10 seconds and replaces Viego's basic attacks, basic abilities, items, base stats (based on Viego's level), and appearance with the champion the Mist Wraith was summoned by and grants him a free cast of Heartbreaker Heartbreaker that is initially placed on a 1.5-second cooldown. Viego also gains 10% bonus movement speed while moving toward nearby enemy champions during this time.
      • Viego cannot use item actives, consumable items, nor the shop while under possession.
      • Viego will preserve his current health percentage between transformations.
