DH5: 051 -Nocturne, The Eternal Nightmare
Zounds! our 51st highfive! How gnarly is that!?
Looks like it's that nihilistic nightmare Nocturne! Better keep that night light on and hope that you didn't eat anything weird before going to bed or this guy is totally going to get you!
Nocturne's Design is pretty neat for something incorporeal. I'm a big fan of his lobstery battle-blades and I like how he swoops around the field doing all sorts of scary crap. His abilities really mess with the game itself by making it super dark across the whole map and leaving creepy trails as well as scary tendrils that grasp onto the enemy. All in all a very flashy assassin.
In game Nocturne is a newer champion, so he's got those kind of swiss-army abilities that do like 4 things at once and he is just overall a lot more flashy than the older champions. I know that updating the older champs would be an arduous task but sometimes taking some classic guys and fighting the newer guys with all those super combined abilities feels like your attacking a laser gun with a wooden spear. Nocturne's Ult alone is pretty much a global debuff that can lead into an easy kill if he's positioned right. Is anyone a fan of this spooky slaughterer? drop us a line with your jungle strats or experiences! or even if you just have a comment on his crazy design!
