"But fiddlesticks uses one, and so does one of karthus' skins"
1.) Fiddlesticks uses a sickle, which is different from a scythe, and he doesn't really utilize it outside of crittlesticks
2.) Karthus doesn't really do anything with his scythe, and its only on one of his skins
I really want someone who uses a scythe as a pain part of their kit. Why?
Scythes are cool
You're asking for not a scythe as a weapon, but more a scythe-fighter - someone who would use it more like Zasalamel from SC4 than a death caster, correct?
I think this is a cool idea - we've explored this a bit, but nothing that hits it out of the park yet. It's a pretty distinct weapon, we just need to find a character to make sure it delivers on that fighting style.
I felt similar about axes - Sion already had an axe, but Darius actually hits you with it.
Quote:Have you ever read the graphic novel BONE, Morello? There's a character in there that uses a Scythe, and they are THE character that I think of when people start talking about Scythes. The best part is that they're far from stereotypical.
Also, the Dervish from Guild Wars 1 was excellent.
It's tougher in League because we don't have long windups unless there's a specific exception to do so. It's not undoable, but the character will have to pull a lot of weight to do right (and I think anything less will be disappointing).
