    I haven't posted in forever, but seeing how there's a 128 MB limit now, I was able to do some crazy stuff with Liadrin, so here we go.

    Lady Liadrin is a fairly offensive paladin, utilising the Retribution aspect of their order in WoW. LTA will try to reflect this by making her skillset focused on keeping allies from harm by destroying high-priority targets such as heroes or elites but also mixing a bit of Protection tree to reflect the strategy aspect of the game and the fact she cared about every individual within her order.

    Liadrin is obtainable via capturing M'uru as either Alliance or Horde and researching the Blood Knights tech there.


    Here's the skillset:

    Attack Range: Melee

    Role: Melee DPS, Support, Hero Killer.
    Starting Health: 1050 (post-stats)
    Starting Armour: 5
    Starting Damage: 32-58 (post-stats)
    Starting Attack Speed: 1.25 (4 attacks over 5 seconds)
    Level 1 Strength + Gain: 25 + 2.25 [PRIMARY]
    Level 1 Agility + Gain: 14 + 1.8
    Level 1 Intelligence + Gain: 21 + 1.75


    [​IMG] [Q] Templar's Verdict - 55/75/95/115 mana cost. 9/7/6/5s cooldown. DAMAGE TYPE: Physical

    Lady Liadrin performs a mighty melee strike against a chosen target, dealing damage and ruining their resistances. Deals 20/40/60/80 + 50/100/150/200% of Liadrin's attack damage, reduces armour by half and negates magic resistance if they have any. Heroes are interrupted and elite units are silenced for 2.5s. The armour and magic resistance penalty lasts 5 seconds.

    [​IMG] [W] Divine Storm - 120/130/140/150 mana cost. 25/23.5/22/20s cooldown. DAMAGE TYPE: Magical

    Lady Liadrin unleashes the radiant energies of the Light within the 300 AoE around herself. Allies have negative effects removed from them and get healed for 30/45/60/75 health while enemies take 80/95/110/125 damage and are slowed by 10/20/30/40%. Lady Liadrin gains 0.5/1/1.25/1.5% extra damage for every target affected.

    [​IMG] [E] Greater Blessing - See below. 20s cooldown.

    Lady Liadrin applies a blessing of her choice that provides benefits based on the type of blessing. The blessings are chosen via an openable spellbook. All 3 abilities go on cooldown when one of them is cast.
    The blessings available are:
    [​IMG] [Q] Greater Seal of Wisdom - 50/65/80/100 mana cost.

    Lady Liadrin grants the Greater Seal of Wisdom to herself and all other Blood Elven heroes within a 400 AoE around her. Grants 50/100/150/200% increased mana regeneration to other heroes and an extra 2/3/4/5 mana and life regeneration to Liadrin herself. Lasts 5 seconds.
    [​IMG] [W] Greater Seal of Might - 90/100/110/125 mana cost.

    Lady Liadrin bestows the Greater Seal of Might upon herself and all other Blood Elven heroes within a 400 AoE around her. Grants 20/30/40/50% extra damage to heroes. Lady Liadrin receives 30/50/75/100% extra damage and 25% extra attack speed instead. Lasts 3/4/5/6 seconds for other heroes and 5/6/8/10 seconds for Liadrin.
    [​IMG] [E] Greater Seal of Protection - 60/80/95/110 mana cost.

    Lady Liadrin bestows the Greater Seal of Kings upon herself and all other Blood Elven heroes within a 400 AoE around her. Grants 10% extra movement speed and 5/10/15/20% damage reduction. Lady Liadrin receives 30% movement speed and is temporarily invulnerable instead. Lasts 3/4/5/6 seconds on heroes and 2/3/4/5 seconds on Liadrin.

    [​IMG] [R] [ULTIMATE] [CHANNELED] Retribution - 200/300 mana cost. 150/120s cooldown. 450 cast range. DAMAGE TYPE: Magical & Pure

    Lady Liadrin brings out the holy judgement upon her foe. The selected hero of her choice is conflagrated in holy flames, losing 2% of their MAX HP every second for 5 seconds as magical damage for a total of 10% of their MAX HP. At the end of the spell's duration the selected hero will then lose another 20% of their MAX HP, become stunned for 1 second and receive 25% extra damage afterwards for 5 seconds. This damage cannot be affected by resistances. Lady Liadrin has to remain stationary while applying Retribution to the target but can move freely once the secondary effect applies. Casting this spell immediately ends Seal of Protection on Liadrin.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions? She's open for any of those. @Spampolice Your waifu's here. Note that Liadrin follows the newer design that will be slowly applied to all of the older LTA heroes in order to make them unique.

    An interesting suggestion, although I'm going to save it for a different Paladin.
