I love Kratos one of my favorite video game characters of all the time.
This would be my suggestion for a possible skill set. Not going to lie I would want him to be op like ezio or better.
Front Line Dps
All regular attacks hit in a medium area in front of Kratos, like when he swings his blades on a chain.
Skill 1: Blades of Chas
Kratos leaps a short distance forward into the air and becomes momentarily invulnerable until he lands slamming his blades at the maximum stretched out distance. Think of the last hit on the triangle triangle triangle combo. All enemies hit will take initial physical damage and will bleed for a few seconds afterwards. Any enemies in the near proximity of Kratos when he lands will be momentarily stunned. Should be a very short cooldown ability that is used every 4 to 6 seconds so the damage should be scaled as necessary.
Skill 2: Vengeance
Nothing can stop Kratos from getting his revenge. The lower the hp of Kratos the more damage, crit chance, and life steal he has. At full hp the ability gives 0 bonuses and scales up for every 10% health missing. Additionally once Kratos hp drops bellow 25% any killing blows will generate healing orbs that will heal him for a certain amount.
Skill 3: Sword of Olympus
Kratos materializes the sword of Olympus and stabs the sword into the ground causing a great discharge of energy from its location. All enemies will be knocked back from Kratos location, take damage, and be incapacitated. The severity of the damage, knock back, and duration of incapacitating effect depends on how close the enemies are to kratos.
Ultimate: Rage of the Gods
Kratos unleashes his unyielding fury draining his energy bar in the process and becomes immune to all crowd control effects and debuffs in the game. All attacks used by kratos become unstoppable, they cannot miss, be dodged, resisted, or anything else of the sort. Additionally Skill 1 and 3 will be used much more rapidly while the ultimate is activated. Any critical hits will generate a small amount of energy while killing blows grant 10x the energy. If Kratos is killed while using the ultimate the ground will split and he will fall into the underworld, if you do not lose the fight to the enemy in a certain amount of time then Kratos will climb of out of the underworld for another chance to kill his enemies with 50% hp and 33% hp energy.
Awakening: Golden Fleece
When ever hit by an ability kratos has a 10% chance to parry the attack/ability with the golden fleece sending returning it back to the origin with 50% of its initial power. For ultimates the chance to reflect is 5%.
Probably sounds very over powered but if the numbers are adjusted properly this could be a very exciting and badass looking hero that might shift the meta. Would be a great counter to the test that have a super tanky frontline that does no dmg with glass cannons like garrick and slim in the back as he would leap past the tanks and ignore crowd control or he could reflect a big crit back at garrick probably near one shotting him. Regardless if anything remotely close to this design was made I would instantly 7 star on the spot.
Let me know what you guys think.
