    Krobelus' lore - Suicidal much?

    Krobelus was a Death Prophet—which is one way of saying she told fortunes for the wealthiest of those who wished to look beyond the veil. But after years of inquiring on behalf of others, she began to seek clues on her own fate. When death refused to yield its secrets, she tried to buy them with her life. But the ultimate price proved insufficient. Death disgorged her again and again, always holding back its deepest mysteries. Her jealousy grew. Others could die for eternity—why not she? Why must she alone be cast back on the shores of life with such tiresome regularity? Why was she not worthy of the one thing all other living creatures took for granted? Still, she would not be discouraged. Each time she returned from the grave, she brought a bit of death back with her. Wraiths followed her like fragments of her shattered soul; her blood grew thin and ectoplasmic; the feasting creatures of twilight took her for their kin. She gave a little of her life with every demise, and it began to seem as if her end was in sight. With her dedication to death redoubled, and no client other than herself, Krobelus threw herself ever more fervently into death's abyss, intent on fulfilling the one prophecy that eluded her: That someday the Death Prophet would return from death no more
    According to this story, one could think that they will win the game by dying over 9000 times when playing her.

    Maybe this change could help (but obviously not solve the "problem" alone):
    She gave a little of her life with every demise, more if she had sent someone into the underworld after her last return, and it began to seem as if her end was in sight.
    Please, comment.

    And now she's homicidal too, think of the kids;

    Jokes aside, this is a very viable suggestion. Though, let's be honest... People who would have the brain capacity to think that they can win the game by dying don't normally read the lore.

    ...............

    You really think players will try to die as Krobelus just because of the lore?

    Imagine if she had a passive that would give her, say, bonus int based on her death count. Now that would be game-breaking... for the teammates.

    Lol, no. If its bonus int based on death count, she would be the best jungler besides Chen, Enchant and Lycan.

    Level 1 learn Swarm, go suicide the small and big camps, die once, respawn, clear the big camp, clear the small camp, clear the medium camp, suicide the big camp again, die second time, repeat.

    DP will come out of the jungle with 3k items at 10min in this way, and probably intentionally died 4 times.
    He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.
