Moloch is an energy based magic damage melee fighter. Playing Moloch demands an aggressive approach to combat as otherwise he will waste his damage potential and limited energy pool. He takes time to reach his full potential both in the game and in individual fights but once there he can outpace all but the most powerful late game scaling opponents.
Appearance: Shadowy figure the height of braum with a clawed left hand and wielding a large sword in his right hand. Clothing consists of a ragged cloak draped over his shoulders and partially over his left arm, trousers over his legs, and a hood completely covering his head. Armour is: one pauldron on his right shoulder secured with a strap running across his torso to his waist, vambraces on his forearms, an armoured glove on his right hand, armoured greaves on his shins, a knee pad on his left leg. His face is completely invisible and nothing protrudes of his hood.
Sword is quite similar to black knight ultra great sword from dark souls with some alterations to fit with Moloch’s overall ascetics. Alterations include: having a longer handle with a heavier spiked pommel, the cross guard being made bigger and more pronounced, having the blade becoming half as wide toward the hilt and being is attached to Moloch via a tendril wrapped around his right forearm that allows it to be swung at long range.
An inky black substance constantly spurts and crawls across his body and his sword is wreathed in it to the point that it leaves a trail as he attacks with it.
Health regen: 8.1-20.2
Energy regen: 50
Attack damage: 60-110
Attack speed: 0.660 (+0%-31.3%)
Magic resist: 32.1-53.4
Movement speed: 335
Damage per second: 5+ 2.5Xlvl (+20% AP)
Damage amplification: 5%/7%/9% (+1% per 75 AP)
Energy restored: 40+10Xlvl energy
Moloch’s attacks and abilities apply a shred of his corrupting body to targets they hit for 4 seconds. When Moloch damages the target twice the next active ability that strikes them will cause them to become fully corrupted, connecting them to him with a tendril of darkness while they remain within 500 units of Moloch, that deals damage every half second to them and splitting off to partially corrupt two more targets, dealing 50% damage to them.
While an enemy is being damaged by the tendril Moloch’s abilities, along with the one that triggered corruption, will deal bonus damage to them while also gaining bonus effects and restoring Moloch’s energy. Basic attacks and abilities will refresh the duration of corruption and hitting a secondary target with an ability will instantly trigger full corruption on them as well, target’s can only be damaged by the strongest tendril at any one time.
Q: Reaping spiral
Cost: 120/115/110/105/100 energy
Magic damage per hit: 50/75/100/125/150 (+32.5% AP)
Moloch swings his sword out onto its tendril in a 2 hit combo, first in a long range slam ahead of him before bringing it around for a shorter range 360 slash that also slows enemies hit for 2 seconds. Moloch is unable to move during the slam but can move as he performs the slash.
Corruption: Moloch reels enemies hit by the slam into basic attack range before unleashing the slash.
W: chaos strike
Max movement speed: 5%/7.5%/10%/12.5%/15%
Cost: 100 energy
Bonus damage: 50/70/90/110/130 (+25% AP)
Secondary bolt radius: 150
Max Shield: 5%/6%/7%/8%/9% max health + 100/140/180/220/260 (+50% AP)
Passive: Moloch becomes charged with entropy as he deals damage with corruption’s DoT, lands abilities on corrupted opponents, moves and lands basic attacks, (movement and basic attacks only build entropy when chaos strike is on cooldown). As he gains entropy he gains movement speed. When his entropy reaches 100 the cooldown of chaos strike is reduced by 50%.
Active: The next basic attack in the next 5 seconds causes Moloch to strike with his chaos empowered claw: dealing bonus magic damage and sending 4 bolts of energy forward in a cone. The bolts deal half of the damage of the strike and enemies hit can only be damaged by two bolts, the second bolt doesn’t add a second stack of corruption.
This attack consumes all Moloch’s entropy when it strikes the target and if Moloch is at full entropy when he activates chaos strike he will teleport up to 350 units toward his target when he attacks.
When the ability is first activated Moloch gains a shield for 5 seconds based his max health and when it strikes the damage dealt by the ability is added on to the shield, there is no cap on how much of the shield can be restored but it has a maximum capacity that cannot be exceeded.
Corruption: Moloch regains all the entropy he expended when this ability strikes and the shield will be completely refreshed and empowered to its maximum capacity.
E: Dark words
Cost: 150 energy
Max damage: 60/80/100/120/240 (+64% AP) (+8/9/10/11/12% target’s max health)
Max slow: 10%/15%/20%/25%/30%
Moloch lets out a blood chilling scream at enemies in a cone in front of him for 3 seconds, while being slowed by 15% and unable to make other actions while screaming (Moloch can reactivate to stop screaming). The scream is laced with dark magic that overwhelms the body and soul of anyone that hears it, causing them: to take magic damage every second, have their movement speed reduced (stacking twice) and be silenced for 0.5 seconds every time they are damaged. The damage is reduced down to 60% at max range.
Corruption: Enemies are feared instead of silenced while also taking full damage regardless of range.
Heal from damage:4%/6%/8%
Passive: Moloch is healed for a percentage of the damage dealt to fully corrupted targets
Active: Moloch leaps high in the air before crashing down at the target location. Champions hit by the impact are fully corrupted but only suffer the corruption bonus effects if they were already corrupted.
Corruption: Enemies are knocked up for 1 second and deal 15% reduced damage for 3 seconds afterward.
He is rage
He is hubris
He is every urge and desire that would bring us harm
He is a life without restraint
He is death without comfort
He is the suffering that has always been, and will never stop
He is the burning forest
He is the frozen tundra
He is the endless depths, and the horrors they hold within
He is the screams of the dead
He is the silence of the living
He is the torment of those trapped between
He is the box of forbidden secrets
He is the smith of the blood soaked blade
He is the nightmare that exists after waking
He is darkness given flesh
He is everything wrong with mankind
He is the end
He is Moloch

Along with Moloch could be the release of multiple Corrupted skins for other champions. These skins would be the result of them to joining Moloch to achieve their goals, and using any means necessary. Potential corrupted champions would be: Ahri, Zed, Syndra, Sejuani, Jinx, Jhin, Nautilus, Draven, Renekton, Gankplank, Veigar, Yasuo, and Morgana. Corrupted skins would borrow ascetics from Moloch’s design: darker colours, more savage weaponry and armour and a generally darker theme to them.
