Idle Champion Spotlight: Korth 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's time for our newest Champion Spotlight! Today, we're previewing the release of Korth, the Lizardfolk Fighter (Samurai). Read on to learn about this new and exciting Champion debuting tomorrow June 12 in Dragondown Y2!

Who is Korth?

Korth is the latest CNE original Champion to join the roster. He joins fellow CNE Champions in helping us fill in races and classes for a super diverse group of Champions with more than enough bards!

Raised as a gladiator in the pit arenas of Kara-Tur, Korth has since traveled the world studying fighting styles and the art of war. Korth is infamous for his skill and efficiency in battle – and for his ruthlessness, as he never spares the lives of his opponents. Those who cross Korth's path do so at their own risk.

Basic Attack

Samurai Slice: Korth charges out and attacks the nearest enemy with his Samurai sword.

Formation Abilities

  • Lizardfolk Tactics — Whenever Korth attacks an enemy, that enemy gets a Marked debuff. A Champion that attacks one or more Marked enemies gets a single .25 second reduction to their next Base Attack cooldown.

  • Fighting Spirit — When any Champion attacks a Marked enemy, they get a temp HP shield that is on a 15-second cooldown.

  • Calculated — When any Champion attacks any Marked enemy, Korth increases the damage of all Champions by 25% (multiplicatively) for 15 seconds. Each in-formation Champion can contribute a single stack, and each stack expires separately.

  • Rapid Strike — When any Champion kills a Marked enemy, they get a 25% chance to immediately attack again and have 5 seconds removed from their Ultimate Attack cooldown.

  • Strength Before Death — When Korth is about to die, he is instead resurrected at 1HP and instantly performs an Ultimate Attack against the enemy that struck him. This ability has 3 charges, which restore at a rate of 1 per 5 minutes while online.

Specializations

  • Group Tactics — Take this specialization to make Korth the centerpoint of a circle whose Champions deal greater damage against Marked targets.

  • Rapid Training — Take this specialization if you want to focus on speed. Champions not adjacent to Korth will gain an additional .25 seconds to their base attack cooldown reduction when attacking Marked enemies. In addition, they will be more likely to attack again with Rapid Strike.

Ultimate Attack

    Hungry Jaws — Forget the hippos! Fear the Lizardfolk! Korth leaps to the nearest enemy and ferociously bites them, causing massive damage and a bleed for 4x the base damage over 10 seconds!

Equipment
