New God: Serqet - Goddess of Venom | July 15, 2014
Serqet's Basic Attacks apply Catalyst, which consumes her lingering Poisons. If the target is affected by two different lingering poisons they are dealt 10% of their maximum health as physical damage. If affected by three different poisons they are dealt 20% of their maximum health as physical damage.
Serqet dashes three times from side to side, dealing 60/80/100/120/140 (+30% of your physical power) damage, and applying Deathbane Poison to each enemy hit. This ability can critical hit, and Serqet is immune to knockup while dashing. Deathbane Poison reduces a target's physical protection by 20% for 3s, after which it remains in a lingering dormant state for 20s.
Cost: 60 mana.
Cooldown: 10 seconds.
Serqet launches her two blades forward, dealing 50/70/90/110/130 (+40% of your physical power) damage and applying the Cobra's Kiss Poison. Cobra's Kiss Poison drives gods to madness for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s, forcing them to attack nearby allies, dealing 50/60/70/80/90 (+30% of your physical power) per hit, or walk harmlessly towards Serqet. After the madness, Cobra's Kiss remains in a lingering dormant state for 20s.
Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana.
Cooldown: 18 seconds.
Serqet enters stealth, rooting herself in place. She may leap to a target location, dealing 80/140/200/260/320 (+50% of your physical power) damage to enemies. She will stay hidden until she leaps or cancels this ability. Enemy gods within range 12.5 will reveal her.
Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana.
Cooldown: 15 seconds.
Serqet leaps to an enemy, stunning them for 1s, applying the Last Breath poison, then pushing them 30 units away. The Last Breath poison deals 150/275/400/525/650 true damage over the next 5s, and prevents healing. If an enemy dies while infected with Last Breath, they will explode, applying the poison to all nearby enemies.
Cost: 100 mana.
Cooldown: 90 seconds.
