Amumu, the Sad Mummy

Overview:

Like a few other tanks within League's original roster, Amumu's status as a walking Ult has, unfortunately, stood the test of time. I attempted to bury that with my initial Amumu redesign by making it a bit harder for Amumu to close the gap and adding more counterplay to his Ult, in exchange for more sticking power fitting for the clingy li'l cadaver.

He was still missing something that made him exciting, though - a unique something-or-other that made him stand out within the now 150+ character roster. Every champion needs a tailor-made tool that plays a large role in shaping their distinct path of mastery and strategic niche, and Amumu is no different!

-

The sad mummy's eternal quest to cure his loneliness continues on with these new changes, retaining his need to get near enemies and stick to them as long as possible. Now, however, even more of his up-front power has been shifted around to allow him to turn the enemy team into mummies - mummies who can't help but stop hitting Amumu's teammates to give him a quick hug.  

-

Aside from some power shifts and a more noticeable Cursed Touch, Amumu's abilities are largely unchanged. His Ult retains the ability to keep enemy teams grouped up, but is now more like Veigar's original Event Horizon cage to keep that sort of interesting enemy-containing ability in the game.

All values in blue are meant to give a general idea of the ability's properties, and are subject to change.

Class: Vanguard

Recommended Positions: Jungle

Complexity: Low

Innate: Cursed Touch

Amumu's basic attacks apply a Curse for 3 seconds. Enemies that remain Cursed for 8 seconds are Mummified for 3 seconds, receiving 15% bonus true damage from all incoming pre-mitigation magic damage and becoming disarmed and silenced for the duration.

 

Damage from Amumu's abilities refresh the Curse's duration, and enemies that recover from Mummification reset the Curse's progress. 

Q: Bandage Toss

Amumu tosses a bandage in the target direction, dealing 80/130/180/230/280 + (70% AP) magic damage to the first enemy it hits. If the bandage hits a champion or monster, they will become tethered to Amumu for 3 seconds or until the target breaks the tether by moving 250 units beyond its maximum range.

 

While the tether persists, the target's movement speed and attack speed are reduced by 18/21/24/27/30%, and Amumu will pull himself 150 units towards them every 0.5 seconds. If Amumu reaches the target, he will stick to them for 3 seconds, becoming disarmed and doubling Bandage Toss's movement speed and attack speed reduction for the duration. 

Bandage Toss can be re-activated to break the tether or un-stick from his new friend early.

(based on missing health).

ACTIVE: Amumu creates a cursed ring around his current location that persists for 3.5 seconds, accelerating the rate at which enemies within it become Mummified by 50/75/100%.
