CHAMPION SPOTLIGHT – LOKI

Loki enters The Contest August 4th at 10AM PDT!

About Loki:

I know what they say. The son of a Frost Giant. They also called me the god of mischief, but that lacks a certain…imagination. Don’t you think? Look at my adoptive family, my father Odin and my brother Thor are so dull, monotonous. Am I good? Evil? Noble? Nonsense. Call me not mischievous – I merely see the world not as it is, but how it could be. Call me a visionary. Call me Loki.

Recommended Masteries

Petrify & Pacify:

  • When going for his Special 3, Loki Curses the opponent and deals damage over time while also stealing their Buffs. When the opponent is Cursed, basic attacks have a chance to inflict Stun and heavy attacks renews the duration of the Curse. So if you are skilled enough, you can keep the enemy cursed for the entire duration of the fight.

Despair:

  • Curse is a Debuff, add in Despair mastery to crush opponents even more by reducing their Regeneration effects.

Courage & Greater Strength:

  • Loki’s Special 2 and Special 3 deals additional ability damage, maximizing your attack is a clear and simple choice.

Strengths

  • Opponents that heavily rely on Buffs are going to get hard-countered by Loki.
    • Examples: Ultron, Venom or Thor
  • Loki’s resistance to Energy attacks is pretty strong, making him a strong competitor when going against opponents that rely on it.
    • Examples: Doctor Strange or Magneto

Weaknesses

  • Opponents that rely on pure attack stats and debuffs to deal damage are going to excel against Loki. He is weaker against physical attacks, despite still having a lot of health.
    • Examples: Hulk or Black Panther
