DESCRIPTION & LORE

Description

Automaton is a melee universal hero whose spells become stronger the lower his mana is. His ultimate is a high damage channel that quickly drains mana, becoming stronger and stronger in the process. Battery Recharge can be used to gain a large portion of that lost mana back, and it also gives him a strong barrier as a bonus. Lastly, vaporize is a short range, low cooldown, high damage nuke combined with a powerful slow which makes Death Ray much easier to land.

Edit: Emergency Protocol now also gives attack damage per % missing mana. This makes Automaton less of a one trick pony. As a nerf I massively reduced his starting armor and attack damage.

Innate and Facet ideas for when this website allows for it:

Innate:
Emergency Protocol. Now reworked to be a true innate passive. Effects becomes stronger per level. This opens Automaton up to get a third damaging spell that actually benefits from Emergency Protocol. I'm thinking of some kind of toggelable auto cannon that drains mana per second.

Facets:
Ready, set, death: Death Ray has no cooldown. Allows Automaton to be much more reactive with Death Ray.
Battery Discharge: Battery Recharge now deals damage in an area around Automaton based on a percentage of maximum mana Automaton was missing upon cast. However, Battery Recharge no longer grants barrier. Will add slight changes to the shard as well as changes to the level 25 talent.
