Clownpiece,
Lunatic Fairy of Hell



BACKGROUND INFORMATION:



Clownpiece is a rather popular character from the Touhou Project, ever since she appeared in touhou 15. She, like all fairies, is playful and mischievous. But unlike other fairies, she is a fairy of hell.

Her powers mostly came from her torch, which had the ability to drive anyone insane just by looking at its light, becoming short-tempered and crazy, attacking anyone in sight. Aside from that though, she is also a pure embodiment of impurity that no one can fight without having their souls tainted in such impurity. However currently, it is unclear if she still is.

HERO SUMMARY:



Her playstyle revolves around toying the enemies' positioning. “Striped Abyss” summons 2 walls left and right that limits the enemies abilities to walk freely (Kind of like Kinetic Field, but it's in two straight lines.) Combine that to “Star and Stripe”, which is a wall of energy that slowly advances, the enemies will be forced either to face it head on or to retreat.

But retreating isn't an option! Once they've felt the maddening influence of her torch, leaving will only be a scorching endeavor as their sanity tries to recover. Affected by strong burn and slow.

So the only option is to fight, right? Mmm... no. Her ultimate, Prison sign “Eclipse of Hell” will just drive anyone facing her to attack their own precious ally. Frenzied with haste and attack speed bonus. They can try to run from their ally, sure, but they're just as mad doing so anyway.

PROS :
  • Disrupts enemy formations.
  • High movespeed
  • Can turn ganks around
  • Anti-carry ultimate
CONS :
  • All of her damage and disables are unreliable
  • Bad int for an int hero
  • Requires delicate positioning herself
  • She's dead if enemy gets too close

NOTES :


[R] Prison sign “Eclipse of Hell”


Clownpiece brings the full potency of her torch. Instantly applies the “Graze Inferno” aura to all enemies in radius upon cast. Any enemies that are looking at Clownpiece and her torch long enough will be drowned in insanity, attacking their nearest ally. Also reduces “Graze Inferno” aura linger to 0.5 seconds.
Aghanim's Scepter reduces cooldown and increases insanity duration and max attacks.

ITEMIZATIONs:



Her main combo is Inferno “Striped Abyss” and Hell sign “Star and Stripe”. But to do that effectively, she needs positioning. Blink Dagger would be great on her as well as Force Staff. Another use for these items is to chase down the escaping enemy just enough to give the "Graze inferno" debuff again.

Arcane Boots. She needs it.

Other than those though, she doesn't need pretty much else. She can anti-carry without items and thus, functions as a support. Warding is indeed easier to someone with naturally high movement.

Aghanim's Scepter boosts many aspects of her ultimate, especially the increase to max attacks. It will also be easier to make an enemy insane with it due to the lower time the enemy needs to look at Clownpiece. A must have for the late game, even more if she had “Eclipse of Hell” Pierces Immunity as her level 25 talent.

Her nature is to be annoying, so she might find herself prioritized in fights. Mekansm solves her frailty while also staying in the support role.

CHANGELOGS:

I wouldn't name the hero after an established character from a different game. Other than that, this looks great, to the point where I don't feel the urge to change anything (one of my big problems, XD).

Her Graze Inferno is one of the best abilities I have seen here on Dotafire. It is amazing! (Though it seems very hard to lane against her, as she can deal over 135 damage at level 3 with it, and 210 at level 5, idk how to balance this, maybe just reduce the damage).

Star and stripe seems like it should move slower (250 speed at max, ending up 1000 away and forcing damage from it or Graze Inferno). 325 movespeed is faster than almost every single hero. I also think the "high damage" should be changed to 80/110/140/170 and the dps to 20/30/40/50.

I would suggest making the "Insanity to her killer" last 3(4 aghs) seconds (5/7 attacks). While denying an aoe with just 2 seconds is powerful, against just 1 unit it is much weaker. Her ultimate also doesn't scale at all, and I would recommend changing torch duration to 5/6/7 (4/6/8, 6/7/8?) and bonus attack speed to 50/75/100 to make there be more of a reason to level it. (while also removing any claims of being OP).

Overall, I love the hero, and honestly think that this would work well in Dota, which I don't say freely.

  • But I want my saga of "If Touhou were Dota heroes" so I'm afraid I'm gonna keep doing it. Don't worry, I'll throw in some original heroes too if I can.
  • "Star and Stripe" duly noted. Thanks very much!
  • But in my defense of her ult.
    • While the exposure time is the only one that scales, the enemies' right click also scales. And so does the need for decisive teamfights.
    • I believe that the numbers are enough so that at level 1 ult, while it will barely make anyone insane (no one will keep on looking for a whole 4.5s unless disabled), it remained viable as a gank / anti-gank tool, thanks to its low mana and reapplication of "Graze inferno".
    • At later stages teamfights become more important, and her ult is a 10 second area deny. Powerful, sure, that the -0.5s to 'exposure until insanity' is enough of a big deal. The +125 mana per level and her low intelligence prevents it from being abused. (second lowest, next to Ogre Magi)
  • I'm actually not the one who decides on her spell names. To stay true to her character, those are her actual "Spell Cards". All I can do is choose which name fits. You do notice that I mostly treat them without [lore method of casting].
    • Her "Striped Abyss" is based on her unnamed non-spell card though.

I did not notice that Patchouli knowledge was also from this project. Anyways, makes sense I guess.

I still disagree about the ultimate, though. I don't think anyone will get a second point in it as is, because it doesn't do that much. Maybe even just reducing cooldown by 25 seconds (150/125/100) would be nice.
I just don't like the idea of leveling up an ultimate and not noticing a difference. Oh well.

EDIT: also I'm blind or something as I didn't notice that it was a whole 4.5 seconds. I still don't feel the shift down to 3.5 is enough of a scaling effect, but for some reason in my mind I was thinking it was 3/2.5/2. I guess that dispels any last doubts in my mind that this is in the slightest OP.
