Targon. It is not widely known that the fiercest of warriors rely not only on their mere strength but seek the aids of Gods and favor of celestials of Runeterra. Through public knowledge or in secret to keep the projection the visitor holds all the strength, they visit Aiphos to hold ceremony and gain favor. Using his ceremonial sword, and chanting unwritten rites, he blesses them with additional strength and prowess. Not soon after, maybe from a simple gust of wind, maybe something more sinister, a small rock slide turned into a large rock slide, causing great damage to the home village of Aphios below. Only housing his family and a small pariah of assistants they were all badly injured. Barely missing the mass of the slide, he tried to use his power to lift boulders that were crushing the life out of his wife and kids underneath. As his own power was not enough to lift it, he used the ceremonial sword and unwritten rites on himself, as a desperate measure to save his family. The gods did not answer. He never gained their favor. All of his years of worship and devotion. All for not in his time of need. *”Why have they forsaken us?”* *”Why have they forsaken me?”* As he watched the life fade out of their eyes, he took a different effect on his life and his worship. He no longer would reach out to the gods for the strength. He in fact needed to take their strength so that he would never need to rely on their temperamental blessing. He took his ceremonial blade and set out to use it to take the raw essence from the god’s themselves. ___ Without hesitation, and the bodies of his lost family still warm, Aiphos sought out a personal favorite of Mt. Targons warriors for favor, Haradesh – a celestial known for his continuous flame that burns brighter with his will to fight, increased with his flamehands who grow as more adversaries challenges him. As the killing blow was struck, Aiphos chanted the unwritten rites, and absorbed his essence and realized this was not a blessing he was giving to Mt. Targon’s warriors, but a transfer from their strength to the receiver. The defeated Haradesh did not lost its essence without a fight, scaring Aiphos across his face with a continuous flame, causing the lost of an eye and the need to mask the flames with Evergrow Wood. He now looks to drain all gods and celestials of their power, for all of those who turned their backs on him in his hour of need… and put them in a position to pray for *his* favor. > #Abilities https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/wowwiki/images/7/7a/Ability_warlock_moltencore.png/revision/latest?cb=20080822012212 ##PASSIVE: Kindled / Ignited Spell Modifier | Resource Modifier Cooldown: None **Kindled** Aiphos uses a shared pool of **Kindled Stocks** for all of his abilities with a maximum of 3 at level at level 1, increasing the maximum stocks by 1 per level, to a grand total of 20 **Kindled Stocks** at level 18. He has recharge rate of gaining 1 stock every 8.0 / 7.0 / 6.0 / 5.0 seconds (at levels 1 / 6 / 11 / 16). Additionally, 50% of of his current cooldown reduction rate applies to his recharge rate and static cooldowns. **Ignited** On the third or greater consecutive cast of an ability within 8.0 seconds of each other, the ability becomes **Ignited** and grants additional bonuses at the price of higher casting cost. An ability loses its’ **Ignited** state when a different ability is casted. No two abilities may be **Ignited** at the same time. If Aphios does not have the stocks able to cast an ability for its Ignited Cost, it will be casted with it's **Kindled** effect. * Aiphos starts the match and each respawn with the maximum amount of stocks available. * There is no reset timer on the consecutive ability cast to gain the **Ignited** status. It only considers the number of consecutive cast. * Aiphos gains his ultimate ability and its upgrades as normal, at levels 6, 11, and 16. ___ ___ https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/wowwiki/images/8/82/Ability_rhyolith_magmaflow_wave.png/revision/latest?cb=20110730162658 ##Q: Cinder Sweep Stocked | Conic Area of Effect Range: 350 Conic Degrees: 45° (Kindled) / 75° (Ignited) Static Cooldown: 4.0 seconds Cost: 1 stock (Kindled) / 3 stocks (Ignited) Casting Time: 1.0 seconds (Kindled) / .25 seconds (Ignited) Interrupts Movement: Yes Aiphos plants his feet and makes a powerful sweep with his Uchigatana through all enemy units in a small cone in front of him, dealing 20 / 35 / 50 / 75 / 100 (+20% AD) in physical damage. **Ignited** On the third or greater consecutive cast, Aiphos attacks faster by having the base casting time reduced greatly to .25 seconds, deals more damage at 35 / 65 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+20% AD) in physical damage. and swings in a greater arc for the attack. ___ ___ https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/wowwiki/images/9/9b/Inv_flaming_splinter.png/revision/latest?cb=20110724174433 ##W: Ignis Stones Stocked | Ground Targeted Area of Effect | Area of Effect Debuff | Self Heal on Auto Attack Range: 400 Radius: 250 (Kindled) / 500 (Ignited) Projectile Speed: 550 Static Cooldown: 6.0 seconds Cost: 1 stock (Kindled) / 3 stocks (Ignited) Casting Time: .5 seconds Interrupts Movement: No Aiphos sends one Ignis Stone to spot on the ground nearby, which burns any enemy unit in the area them with a deep smoldering heat, dealing 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 (+25% AD) in physical damage per second, with the Ignis Stone lasting 3.0 seconds.

As it avoids being written down due to old traditions, there is no written transcription of it. It is learned through recitals as part of the Reedition Process as to become a ceremonial leader. A portion of the overall rite is started [here](https://youtu.be/mEdaubYd8hw?t=1m32s) throughout his theme music. > #Personal Notes * I’m always happy to hear any form of constructive criticism. I make changes on agreeable suggestions and give credit where credit is due too. Comment freely. * You liked this concept? You can check out the full collection of my other concepts on my [Champion Concept Mega Thread](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/Igs96Ab9-showcase25s-champion-concept-mega-thread) > #Patch Notes ##Version 2.0 - 05/19/2018 **Abilities** *All abilities have been updated.* **Passive: Kindled / Ignited** Resource was changed to reduce total stocks, and normalize all consecutive cast to 3 to start the ignited effect. Added effect to reduce abilities' static cooldown and stock recharge rate. Also increased the static cooldown of all abilities to between 4 to 7 seconds. **Q: Cinder Sweep** Increase Ignited base damage. **W: Ignus Stones** Changed ability to place a object on battlefield, dealing AOE DOT damage. This object can be attacked. Ignited effect reduces movement speed in the area for all enemy units. **E: Heated Jaunt** Changed ability, removing stab attack, and targeting paradigm to ground targeted. Flames first damage around Aiphos, then travel towards the targeted area. Ignited effects now include a self targeted movement speed buff and a dash if a movement command is made on the ground targeted area, providing even more mobility if the dash collides with an enemy champion. **R: Flame Strikes** Provided clarity on Stolen Essence Bonus to the ability. Limited bonus attacks bonus with timed gate, instead of lasting untill death. *Thanks to everyone on the discord, reddit, and this post for all of the feedback, criticism, suggestions, and occasional praise. I appreciate it.*
