yeah they had been shopping around the plant champion for quite a while. Im thinking she will be a pure ap caster.
Eh i thought Dota regularly uses heroes suggestions in the forums for some new heroes?
In Soviet Russia banks rob you! Oh, wait a second...
Could the spike at the top left possibly be a tail 0.o?
^ Wrong. Morello said she has nothing to do with Maokai.
I hope she plays like Morganna, and has survivability but doesn't nuke people down.
Plant so; Snare/slow.
Big ulti trap like Mumu, or she will summon like NP in Dota and trap everyone in an area for a couple of seconds.
But apparently she is the next-gen hero?
So maybe a new mechanic.
Which would make sense if it's a QWE ability that summons a couple of controllable adds.
We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.
Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
These aren't her spells, but Morello said that person was closer to guessing what she does.Shot in the dark: her spells in some fashion germinate plants. The plants will, depending on which skills are used in which order, produce different effects, that may include things like:
temporary walls (tree?)
dot (leech seed)
cc (sleep powder)
and possibly other interesting effects.
If I had to take another guess, she probably has some form of 'pain terrain' akin to rumble's equalizer or malzahar's W. It might be shaped like a half-ring to discourage champions from fleeing the fight. After all, her spoiler picture renders her as being spikey-viney.
She might be able to jungle. (meaning, Phreak will do it in the spotlight)
She might be able to play in other lanes and still follow the current Meta, not just mid. Maybe she is a tanky AP like Swain or Vlad?
I just keep going through Morello's comments. He seems to have slowed down now though.
Could also mean she could do support, like Lux or Morgana are Support/AP.
Oh cool! Can't wait to get more info! It seems she is a dps of some sort since she looks to be a very spiky and deadly.

This might be the first champ I buy before I try. Fingers crossed that I enjoy the playstyle. I usually like AP users (especially ranged ones) but there have been some that I really don't like for one reason or another. The odds are in my favor though.
Behind every invincible tank and pro DPS is an OOM healer, rolling their eyes.
