Okay, so Pontifex has been my favorite character since before I even had him when I started a few years back. I’ve been hardcore brainstorming some ideas bc I think he’s long past due for an epic. Anyhow...
Aside from items (ie crystals, pyre embers, or whatever) Pontifex’ epic parts will consist of the:
Orb of Wicked Evil (replaces hovering skull)
Doomed Tome of the Forgotten
Pure Strand of Life
“Once the Dark Mage is capable of manipulating the Strand of Life, none will be able to withstand his might.”
Epic upgrades will increase (as it does with some others) Defense, Attack, and Max Health with each individual upgrade.
Void Storm (replaces Chaos Storm): Ranged Spirit attack on all enemies with chance to Shock/Disease (either seem viable, shock would be wild though).
Grand Theft Bio (replaces life steal):
Ranged Disease attack on single target with chance to disease. Portion of damage dealt returns to Pontifex Returned as HP. If the target dies, Pontifex will reincarnate (possibly before Flesh Incarnate, if an energy potion is utilized) with full health, energy, and either an aegis shield or haste.
This was the tricky bit to think of, I definitely scrapped a few ideas before, but I liked this a bunch.
Epic Attack: Chance to deal (1x) Ranged, Dark lightning damage to all foes with chance to fear.
Epic Passive: Undead Overlord- Gives Undead allies a chance to retaliate against any attack on Pontifex Mortis (or Returned) and also gives Undead Allies a chance to defend Pontifex Returned (only) from a deathblow. Allies defeated while protecting Pontifex Returned will resurrect with full health and energy when Pontifex Returned returns to Pontifex Mortis by any means. Boost Undead Def. and/or Max Health.
I will put images of Epic Items and the recent skin I’ve made below. These are all just ideas... ideas I hope Dungeon Boss may one day utilize.
