¨Fated to die since birth. When the time came, it´s fate could not be avoided. But fate is a laughing stock in the face of irony, as it has been born anew.¨

The Morphed is a fan-made host created by Yours truly, unlocked via completing the Luminescent Lights stage.

Description

Morphed is extremely versatile and unique host, promoting many different play styles. (For example, if you prefer a defensive play style, keeping your charge high and using low charge moves would be optimal) It´s main gimmick is charge, which is gained when dealing or receiving damage. It gives more armor the higher it is, and it is used to preform most abilities. Keeping it high makes you near impossible to kill. Morphed has many ways of dishing out massive amounts of damage, but doing so lowers your defensive capabilities, making Morphed a constant battle to stay alive whilst also killing your enemies. Morphed always has something deadly in store, but will always have a drawback, even if little.

Appearance

The Morphed is a translucent dark red hologram, with each limb slightly apart from the torso, connected by wires. It´s head and all it´s limbs have spikes protruding from the back in a line downwards. It´s torso has a large hole in the center. It´s weapons is an arm blade on it´s right arm. It´s face has 2 parallel vertical rectangles, with 2 smaller squares inside each.

Playstyle

Morphed is a mix ´n match of playstyles, being able to work with nearly anything. The most viable however, is a playstyle in which you dish out MASSIVE damage, whilst using your speed to dodge enemy attacks, as you have low defensive capabilities.

Impale (M1) is very similar to Prophet´s M1, as using it in the wrong time can have a rather unfortunate fallout. It is best used when the target is either stunned, or you have no other currently available moves. The kick can be used to put some distance between you and the enemy, however this is risky due to it´s startup. If you have the Unrelenting brutality upgrade, this attack becomes far more viable, as it staggers enemies.


Half crescent (M2) is a far more useful attack than Impale, as it has a short startup, quick attack, and good damage, as well as a stun. It can be used to quickly preform a good hit, while not risking much in the process.

Chains of Retribution (SHIFT) is extremely useful, as it both incapacitates enemies, damages well, AND heals, all in one. Like Half Crescent, it can be used as a quick attack for good damage, or it can be used as a healing method, or both. You can move freely during the duration of the attack, so it allows you to attack the target whilst it is being drained. Overall incredibly useful.

Summon Hologram (Q) is a massive gamble, as you have no way of knowing what host is going to appear. When using this attack, it is best to stay close to the target, as both ranged and melee attackers can hit that way.
