Idle Champion Spotlight: Mehen 
Posted in Idle Champions.

This father is here to do the right thing, though he doesn’t have to be happy while doing it!

Verthisathurgiesh Mehen is a dragonborn fighter, adoptive father of Havilar and Farideh, and a character from the Brimstone Angels D&D Novel series written by Erin M. Evans. He’ll be bringing his commanding presence to the Champion ranks next week during The Great Modron March!

I. Mehen

Dungeons & Dragons Verthisathurgiesh Mehen

    Mehen is a tall, powerful dragonborn with dull-ocher scales and a blunt attitude. With strong opinions on the right course of action, he is just as comfortable yelling orders on the battlefield as he is fiercely protecting his daughters. Despite a life thrown into turmoil after being exiled from his clan and attempting to raise twin tieflings, Mehen remains resilient in his sense of self and his abilities with a falchion.




Mehen is both Grumpy and Gruff and uses those qualities to buff and bolster his allies, especially if those party members include Farideh and Havilar. When you want to add him to your formation, you can swap him with Nayeli (Slot 3).

Race: Dragonborn Alignment: Neutral Good
Class: Fighter Gender: Male
Age: 48 Affiliation: Brimstone Angels

III. Mehen's Design

We continue to be blessed to work with Erin M. Evans, and are excited to bring another one of her brilliant characters to life in our game! Mehen’s experience in the Lance Defenders as well as his work as a mercenary and monster hunter make him a formidable warrior, and his power becomes even more bolstered when fighting alongside his daughters. Brimstone Angels stick together and buff Mehen, while Exiled helps all three find the gold they need to continue their adventures.

Mehen prefers to be towards the back of any formation where he can think tactically about the battle and issue precise orders. Gruff gives buffs to Champions in front of him, while We’ve Trained For This increases the amount of gold he’ll collect the further back he’s placed.

IV. Mehen's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Double Strike — Mehen leaps out and attacks a random enemy with his Falchion, swinging down at first and then up with the second swing, scoring a hit each time.

Formation Abilities

  • Grumpy — Mehen buffs Champions in his column and all columns in front of him based on the number of Grumpy stacks he has. He gains stacks based on the column he is in and loses stacks when himself, Farideh, or Havilar take or receive certain actions. The buff is significantly higher when he is close to 50 stacks (it falls off sharply on either side), and stacks cap at 100.
    • The column position determines the rate at which stacks are added: Front column +1 stack/second, Back column +5 stacks/second, Middle columns are prorated between 1-5 based on the column.
    • Stacks are removed based on the actions of Mehen, Farideh, or Havilar: if any of them attack -10% stacks (once per attack), if any of them take damage -10% stacks (4 seconds of shared cooldown), or if any of them get a kill with a base attack -5% stacks (triggers for each kill).
    • Work to adjust where Mehen, Farideh and Havilar are in your formation to find the best spot to gain stacks as quickly as you’re losing them!
    • This ability is buffed by upgrades, equipment, and feats. Buffs will apply to the post-stack value.
  • Gruff — Mehen increases the effect of his Grumpy buff on Champions based on how many columns ahead of him they are. It is doubled for each column. This ability is buffed by upgrades, equipment, and feats. Buffs to this ability apply to the post-stack value.
  • Exiled — Kills by Farideh, Havilar, or Mehen grant 200% more gold. Buffed by upgrades, equipment, and feats.
  • Brimstone Angels — Increase the effect of Grumpy by 400% if Farideh is in the formation, and a further 400% if Havilar is in the formation. Buffs apply to the pre-stack value, and stack multiplicatively.

Specializations

  • Cheer Up Pops — Increases the rate at which Grumpy stacks are added by 1 and increases the effect of Grumpy by 400%.
  • We've Trained for This — Increase the effect of Exiled based on how far from the front of the formation Mehen is placed. Effect is increased by 20% for each column, stacking multiplicatively.

Ultimate Ability

  • Lightning Breath — Mehen leaps forward and breaths a cone of lightning that damages all enemies on the screen. If he damages more than 5 enemies then his Grumpy stacks are set to 50 and he gains and loses stacks at a reduced rate for 30 seconds.

VI. Conclusion

It’s good to have Havilar and Farideh reunited with their father, and we are excited to see Mehen helping his fellow Champions as grumpy dad!
