Abaddon Abaddon, the Lord of Avernus[edit]

Recommended Roles
Support Carry Durable

The Font of Avernus is the source of a family's strength, a crack in primal stones from which vapors of prophetic power have issued for generations. Each newborn of the cavernous House Avernus is bathed in the black mist, and by this baptism they are given an innate connection to the mystic energies of the land. They grow up believing themselves fierce protectors of their lineal traditions, the customs of the realm—but what they really are protecting is the Font itself. And the motives of the mist are unclear.

When the infant Abaddon was bathed in the Font, they say something went awry. In the child's eyes there flared a light of comprehension that startled all present and set the sacerdotes to whispering. He was raised with every expectation of following the path all scions of Avernus took—to train in war, that in times of need he might lead the family's army in defense of the ancestral lands. But Abaddon was always one apart. Where others trained with weapons, he bent himself to meditation in the presence of the mist. He drank deep from the vapors that welled from the Font, learning to blend his spirit with the potency that flowed from far beneath the House; he became a creature of the black mist.

There was bitterness within the House Avernus—elders and young alike accusing him of neglecting his responsibilities. But all such accusations stopped when Abaddon rode into battle, and they saw how the powers of the mist had given him mastery over life and death beyond those of any lord the House had ever known.

Able to transform enemy attacks into self-healing, Abaddon can survive almost any assault. Shielding allies and launching his double-edged coil at a friend or foe, he is always ready to ride into the thick of battle.

Notes

Ultimate Ability
Borrowed Time

When activated, all damage dealt to you will heal instead of harm. Most negative buffs will also be removed. If the ability is not on cooldown, it will automatically activate if your health falls below an amount. Applies a strong dispel.

Increases the duration. While Borrowed Time is active, anytime an ally takes enough damage while within range of Abaddon, an individual Mist Coil will automatically fire towards that ally.
When broken, only the passive activation is disabled. The ability may still be manually activated.
The most unnatural of all the gifts of the Font of Avernus, this power defies mortal understanding. What should hurt, instead heals; and what should kill gives strength anew.
Notes
  • Borrowed Time Borrowed Time will activate automatically if Abaddon suffers damage while having less than 400 HP.
  • Damage nukes greater than Abaddon's current health will kill Abaddon without passively activating Borrowed Time.
  • When Borrowed Time is active, Abaddon is visually covered in a bright blue glow.
  • Can be cast while disabled, and performs a strong dispel on cast. This allows Abaddon to remove a stun from himself while stunned.
