Idle Champion Spotlight: Talin Uran 
Posted in Idle Champions.

A dashing rogue zips by on his chair, now that's an entrance!

This Midwinter we are thrilled to introduce Talin Uran, making his debut on the Idle Champions roster. We were delighted to work with Sara Thompson, creator of the Combat Wheelchair, and bring their character to Idle Champions.

I. Talin Uran

Dungeons & Dragons Talin Uran Combat Wheelchair

    Talin Uran is a rogue of great renown within Waterdeep. While on an assignment with the Grambar's Blades a few years ago, he was caught in a building collapse that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Now equipped with his combat wheelchair, Talin is back to doing what he does best: Saving the day and looking awesome doing it.


Talin is a charismatic rogue who specializes in analyzing and exploiting enemy weaknesses, increasing the damage of allies, and slowing enemies with his Scatter Tacks. Talin is a Support champion, when you want to add him to your formation, you can swap him with Celeste (Slot 2).

Dungeons & Dragons Talin

III. Talin's Design

Like many in the D&D community, we were inspired when Sara Thompson introduced us to the Combat Wheelchair last summer. We reached out to Sara last year to get their help in bringing a Combat Wheelchair Champion to Idle Champions, and it just so happened that their D&D character, Talin Uran, was a perfect fit!

Representing characters with disabilities is something we take very seriously. In a world where monster attacks are routine, disabilities and accessibility would be much more prominent. We are proud to be in a position to introduce a Champion using the Combat Wheelchair this Midwinter.

Talin does everything you would expect a rogue to get up to, including no shortage of mischief. He attacks using both his rapier with Quiet Ambush and his chair with Razor Edged Chakram. Talin zips around in his chair, dropping caltrops behind when attacking with his Scatter Tacks slowing and damaging enemies that enter them. Ever observant, Talin susses out his enemies' weaknesses and passes this information along to his allies to support the team with Spot Weakness. Talin prefers a unified team and mischief to be lighthearted and buffs Good-aligned Champions with Antagonist. This ability can be reversed to buff Evil Champions with Reversal of Fortunes.

IV. Talin's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Quiet Ambush — Talin disappears into the shadows and reappears behind a random enemy, stabbing them with his rapier. He then shadow steps back into the formation.

Formation Abilities

  • Spot Weakness — Talin carefully observes the enemies as they spawn and whispers weak spot suggestions to nearby Champions, increasing their damage by 100%. This ability is increased by 10% for each enemy killed in the current area, stacking multiplicatively and capping at 25 kills. Applies to all Champions in the formation, but the effect is reduced by 25% for each slot away from Talin they are past one (stacking multiplicatively). Buffs apply to the post-stack value (damage only).
  • Scatter Tacks — When Talin attacks with Quiet Ambush he leaves behind a set of Scatter Tacks which cause enemies standing on them to be slowed by 50% and take 100% more damage from attacks. Each set of tacks lasts for 10 seconds before disappearing. Tacks are spread in a medium radius. Buffs increase the damage bonus but not the slow amount.
  • Antagonist — Talin decreases the DPS of Evil Champions in the formation by 50%, but increases the damage of Good Champions by 50% for each Evil Champion, stacking multiplicatively. Buffs apply to the post-stack value.

Specializations

  • Path Finder — Increases the stack cap and damage buff of Spot Weakness by 100%.
  • Additional Scatter Tacks — Increase the slow effect, radius, and damage of Scatter Tacks by 50% (multiplicatively).
  • Reversal of Fortunes — Reverse the effect of Antagonist, decreasing the damage of Good Champions and increasing the damage of Evil Champions based on the number of Good Champions.

Ultimate Ability

  • Razor Edged Chakram — Talin detaches a secondary hoop-shaped blade from his wheelchair's rear wheel and flings it at the furthest enemy. It travels in a large looping arc, damaging all enemies it encounters before returning to Talin.
