DH5: 029 - Kassadin, The Void Walker
29th highfive! Hooray!
There is no escape! it's that vicious voidwalker Kassadin! ready to silence you forever with his void sphere!
I've already given Kassadin a shot but not in the style of the highfive and I also gave him feet which some people did not like very much so here he is! Kassadins design is a little strange. He's got this mess of a respirator on his face like some kind of metal squid and the blacks and purples aren't different enough in value to really let anything pop. The most noticeable thing is his "Void" powers that are represented by kind of a static blast noise pattern on a very bright purple/pink, I feel that it's a good representation of something foreign in the world but it comes off as a little too strong. It cold be that Malzahar's Void attacks are more recent so appear to be better looking due mainly to the more practiced effects team.
In game I haven't seen to many Kassadin's lately but when a good one shows up and snags a few kills the get to be these roaming, un-catchable monsters. With a teleport on very low cooldown that deals damage and an on demand silence he really is a mean character to be fighting. Kassadin has a pretty difficult playstyle that definitely isn't for everyone, I really admire strong Kassadin players because the few times I gave this Voidwalker a shot I was soundly thrashed. Any fans of the teleporting typhoon Kassadin? Drop us a comment so we can catch up!
