Homage Project: Ashiok, Nightmare's Muse


Recommended Posts

So here's the thing. I understand the EULA and the prohibition on (TM) characters. I'll be altering names and changing faces to honor this agreement. That being said, I've been pining to create an homage character of MTG's "Ashiok, Nightmare Muse" (picture below). 

If anyone familiar with the character would be willing to chime in with their opinion as to what Controller Sets best mirrors Ashiok's, I 'd love to hear it. My current thoughts on possible builds are:

1. Illusion/Dark/Psi

2. Illusion/Time/Dark

3. Dark/Dark/Dark

4. Dark/Time/Psi

I had considered the Storm Secondary some but was thinking that would be better saved for a Phenax(tm) character later on. 

Thanks in advance.

There is one on TorchBearer who is a Ill/Dark/Soul Controller. They did a great costume match.

Awesome! Attempting to recreate the costume has been... difficult for me to say the least. If you ever come across it again, try and snap me a pic?

Are you the one on torch that had the sweet costume? I've spent about 4 hours trying to make mine and I'm not happy with it. Send a screenshot? 

Afraid not, sorry

Being chased by a wasp is the most complete sport practice!

Welp, I dinged 50 during the plague and this is the best I could come up with. But... there's some issues here. Namely, Phantom Army isn't perma (it's at 67 seconds) and neither is Hasten. I did reach Ranged Soft-capped Defense so I've got that going for me at least. I'd like to take this character deep into the the Incarnate Trials and other TFs. Let me know where I went wrong. Thanks.
