    Nanook, Master of Bears

    Master of Bears

    Unlike Artio, who transforms into a bear, this guy IS A BEAR! Nanook is the hunting god who, ironically, allowed the hunting of polar bears by the hands of the Inuit people. He rewarded hunters who paid respect to hunted bears and treated them well, and punished those that mistreated it. If a bear was satisfied with how he/she was hunted (weirdly enough), then he/she would spread the word of he/she was fortunate enough to be the victim of a succesful hunt. Oh yeah, and sometimes the Esk... uh... I mean the Inuit would give Nanook presents... or was it the other way around? Anyways, turns out that the E-word is a slur... so don't use it!

    I honestly don't have too much of an issue with this concept

    That being said, there is a glaring problem

    The wording on his Passive

    The interpretation behind it is rather minimal

    Any attack, basic or ability, that "misses' Nanook

    Gods could easily get this passive applied to them just because they are trying to clear minion wave and Nanook happens to be within the radius for those attacks/abilities to count towards his passive triggering

    The idea is interesting but that is the key problem. Even rewording it so that it would be "any basic attack or ability directly targeted at Nanook that misses" would have issues just because of how the game registers stuff like that

    "During combat, if Nanook falls below 20% Health and does not die within 15s; all enemy gods that damaged Nanook will have stacks of Taboo applied to them depending on how much % damage they dealt, with a max stack of 3. Basic attacks against enemies with this debuff will take increased damage and remove one stack every 5s."
    Example Stack Application Equivalent to % Damage Dealt: 1%-25% = 1 Stack, 26%-49% = 2 Stacks, 50%+ = 3 Stacks

    The increased damage amount is fine

    Granted this is merely a suggestion on how to fix the current problem with the passive
