    Stribog, God of Wind

    Since Aurasai is working on the concepnt the art might be finished somewhere in the feature ; )

    Stribog, god of Wind

    2) Gone with the wind - Stribog enters stealth as he leaps to the target location. Attack made from stealth will deal additional damage equal to a % of target's max hp, and will pierce through.

    Analysis.

    Being tired of yet another hunter god pattern which includes 1-4 damage abilities decided to make a concept of Stribog, with quite different playstyle than other archers. Stribog is basic attack based god, with a set of abilities that allows him to kite and execute deadly strikes upon his enemies.
    His passive Windmelt, allows him to escape harms way after he was hit. 1 sec invisibility with speed bonus allows him to change his location and surprise his enemy. Passive CD is not reduced by items so I personally think it's fine.
    Wind sharpening is a toggle ability that uses mana every time it's cast. Giving him penetration and making his shots piearce through enemies allows him to harrass in early game quite well. Still every missed shot is a loss of mp so one has to think before mindlesly shotting a volley of arrows. This ability also makes him good guardian killer. His Gone with the Wind (2) ability provides additional mobility or damage. Stribog can escape quite quickly using his stealth leap and then shoot an arrow that will ravage foes' health bar, or instead of shooting decide to flee gaining light CC protection and speed. His 3rd Chill of the North allows him to keep the distance, the aura has inner and outer circle, the inner one also prevents enemies form using "dash" skills and stops all incomming dashes as they enter (also work with leap abilities). The 3rd might provide an easy escape route for other teammates and help them execute targets trapped inside. Finally Stribog's ultimate brings some confusion into battlefield with his 'anti-tank' attitude he can deal massive damage to enemy team. Enemy team sees Stribog in their 'colours' however they still can damage him. The victim of the ultimate is treated by AI as an enemy and will be attacked by minions, also his teammates attacks and abillities can affect him doing a % of the base damage, according to the Friendly Fire ratio. This is the worst 6 seconds of the enemy team. If the marked target dies during the effect, every memeber of his team will take damage equal to a % of his health. Stribog's anti-tank nature allows him to deal havy damage with his Ult + 1st and 2nd. Yet he is less effective against less healthy targets since he lacks pure damage burst.

    Summing up
    Pros:
    - Mobility
    - High CC
    - Penetration

    Cons:
    - Lack of burst
    - CC vulnerable
    - Low sustain

    actually nothing, trying to override my concept with the broken 'faceroll' mechanics.
    And Mystic is actually a wannabe concept maker seeking attention ; d

    Pantheon is Slavic, as you can see in my signature ; ) There isn't much lore since Stribog (Strzybóg) was a minor god. There'sa myth about Stribog stealing Radegast cloack and spending night with moon goddess Hors under the disguise. It resulted in Hors giving birth to a child Żiva (Żywa) who was ment to become goddess of Autumn, yet Svarog, the prime god decided not to interfere. From that day on Stribog brings Żiva on his wings every autumn to fight away Morana, goddess of death and winter.

    Stribog was worshiped as a god as Vladimir the Great built few monuments in Kiev in honor of Stribog and made him a local diety. Furthermore wind itself was reffered to as "Strzyboże wnucy" (Stribog's Grandsons). Unfortunatelly you wont be able to find much info about him unless you can read Russian or Polish.

    According to Polish ethymology the word "Struchleć" (Blench from cold) stems from word Stri and the suffix 'bog' is an archaism of bóg - meaning 'god'. That way Stribog may be defined as God of Cold Winds. Yet another theory says that good winds were called "Stryje" which can mean Stribog is also a god of good wind.. all in all he was worshiped generally as God of Wind.

    Hopefully that's enough proof for you concerning the existance of Stribog's worship.

    Yay, slavic pantheon for the win! Although his passive is quite OP. I'd say it should only activate once per time period with % chance, like the Silvanus'. Also, i don't think that his ultimate should be like this. It's Veles who is the god of trickery in slavic mythology, not Stribog.
    By the way, he should be an old man, since Stribog literally means "The Old God".

    The ultimate was inspired by the myth about stealing Radegast cloak, the passive is on 10 sec cooldown and most of his abilities don't provide damage burst ; ) The meaning of the name I've just explained, probably u've answered my post when i was adding some information to it ; )

    In russian sources Hors said to be a god, not goddess, also one of sun, not moon. And there is no mentions of Radegast and his cloak at all...

    The myth varies depending on region. I based Stribog acording to Polish version of the myth, Slavic mythology has the luck to be varied depending on the region. I.e in some cases Perun was the highest god, yet in western Poland there were no signs of Perun's worship but Triglav's role was pretty similar to that of Perun. Yet in different parts of Poland Triglav worship was replaced with that of Svarog made it 2 gods to exist at the same time and at times covering the same aspects. You can't just look at it straight forward as if it was Greek or Roman Mythology.
