Idle Champion Spotlight: Tatyana 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Some see this giant blue warrior as a bit of an 'air-head' but those who know her best recognize that this lightness comes from a deep knowledge that the current moment is all we have, and death may lurk around any corner!

Tatyana is a fierce guardian of her friends from the Black Dice Society, and will bring both her barbarian rage and druidic magic to bear on anyone who threatens them! She joins the Idle Champions roster during Festival of Fools 5.

I. Tatyana

Dungeons & Dragons Tatyana

    This toweringly tall air-genasi barbarian earned her skills and power in the gladiatorial fighting pits of Koshmarr. Tatyana augmented her rage with the might of the bear totem, and the spirits of the mist connected her to the natural druidic world through the power of the moon. Her fearsome and deadly battle prowess is tempered by a respect for anyone who would return that respect. She is curious and bold, and while she's quick to jump into battle she's just as swift with her forgiveness.


Tatyana is a Tanking, Support, and Speed Champion who is faithful and protective of her friends and allies. When you want to add her to your formation you can swap her with Delina in slot 8.

III. Tatyana's Design

Most of the Idle Champions community will recognize Becca Scott from her work on The Black Dice Society, Geek & Sundry, Dimension 20, and many other TTRPG shows and streams. But her work also includes a huge library of content as an actor, host, interviewer, podcaster, voice over artist, and streamer! Plus she is the co-founder of the channel and production company Good Time Society.

The core of Tatyana's design focuses on how she channels her Fury and Rage into keeping her friends safe. She'll become a Faithful Friend to a random slot in the middle of the formation, encouraging that Champion to do more damage. As she tanks incoming attacks her Rising Fury will grow, gaining stacks of Fury that increase the effect of Faithful Friend. Eventually her Fury turns to Rage, and with bulging muscles and nasty claws she'll stop attacking with her Twin Kukri Strike and instead rely on her Primal Savagery to bite and claw at enemies! This epic transformation also inspires her Faithful Friend to do even more damage. Since Tatyana is always a Loyal Protector she'll increase the health of all other Champions by 25% of her max health. But when there aren't enemies around to fight, she'll become distracted, heading off to Find a Feast and causing a few enemies to spawn and follow her back to her companions.

Tatyana's Specializations offer unique ways to modify the slots affected by Faithful Friends. If Your Friends Are My Friends then it will also affect Champions in slots adjacent to the Faithful Friend slot, and By My Side lets all Champions in the same column as the Faithful Friend slot gain the bonus. But if Tatyana just wants to help her Best Friend Forever then her buff will continue to only affect one slot, but the effect will increase by 400%! Finally Tatyana's Ultimate Attack taps into her druidic abilities as she summons a gnarly stripe of roots to Entangle enemies right in front of the formation! The roots do damage to all enemies inside it, as well as any enemy who enters the stripe while it's still active.

IV. Tatyana's Abilities

Basic Attack

Tatyana has two attacks, and which she does depends on how many Fury stacks she has.
  • Twin Kukri Strike — While she has 0-50 Fury stacks, Tatyana strikes at the closest enemy with two Kukri strikes, one Kukri in each hand, for two hits.
  • Primal Savagery — While she has more than 50 Fury stacks, Tatyana strikes at the closest enemy with a bite and two clawed swings for three hits.

Formation Abilities

  • Faithful Friend — A random slot from the middle columns of the formation is chosen. Tatyana increases the damage of the Champion in that slot by 100%. Tatyana gains the benefit of this if she happens to be in that slot.
  • Rising Fury — Each time Tatyana is attacked, she gains one Fury stack. The effect of Faithful Friend is increased by +100% for each Fury stack, stacking additively and then applying multiplicatively. She loses 10% of her Fury stacks every 15 seconds that she is not attacked.
  • Rage — When Tatyana reaches 50+ Fury stacks, and for every 15 seconds she's above 50+ Fury stacks, she gets a Rage stack, up to 6. With at least 1 Rage stack, she rages and her base attack changes. For each Rage stack, Faithful Friend gets a 400% bonus, stacking multiplicatively. If she goes below 50 Fury stacks, she loses all Rage stacks.
  • Find a Feast — If Tatyana is not attacked for 15 seconds, and the formation is in non-boss area with no barriers, she briefly runs ahead off the right side of the screen. She returns 2 seconds later from the right side with 2-3 additional enemies that simultaneously spawn. After she returns, the 15 seconds counter starts again from 0 seconds.
  • Loyal Protector — Tatyana increases the health of all other Champions by 25% of her max health.

Specializations

  • Your Friends are My Friends — Tatyana's Faithful Friend now affects all Champions in slots adjacent to the Faithful Friend slot, and the effect is increased by 100%.
  • By My Side — Tatyana's Faithful Friend now affects all Champions in the column containing the Faithful Friend slot, and the effect is increased by 200%.
  • Best Friend Forever — Tatyana's Faithful Friend continues to only affect one slot, however the effect is increased by 400%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Entangle — A stripe of entangling roots appears to the right of the front column, dealing damage to all enemies inside it, and all enemies that enter it during its duration. Enemies standing in the stripe deal 50% less damage. The stripe lasts for 30 seconds.
