MLP Dota 2 Animated Card: Omniknight by Yudhaikeledai MLP Dota 2 Animated Card: Omniknight by Yudhaikeledai
Shining Armor the Omniknight

Main Attribute: Strength
Role: Durable, Support, Lane Support

Lore:
Ever since he was a colt, Shining Armor adored the Royal Guards of Equestria. Their marches, their duty and the pride they wielded as they protected the Princesses. He would spend his free time learning protection spells, doing his own drills and practising his combat skills. As he grew up, Shining’s skill in Royal Guard combat and magic was unparalleled. He had shattered the entrance exam, defeated his superiors and shown an almost frightening amount of skill in the art of healing and protection.

Barely a month into the training and it was clear that his proficiency had far exceeded any syllables that any school may teach. As Shining was training one day, the sisters of Light and Dark descended upon the school and offered the stallion the chance to take the ‘Trials of the Omniscience’, a trial that all Royal Guards must pass if they were to become the leader.

Shining Armor boldly accepted the challenge with an unwavering glimmer in his eyes and the sisters tested him rigorously for several days. Day after day he would have to endure test after test. Tests that pushed Shining to his physical and mental limit and stretched his determination to its breaking point. However, on the 8th day, Shining emerged back on the fields of the training school, bathed in a holy light.

Shining trotted forth, a soothing aura surrounding his form. But what most noticed about him was the presence of the large steel hammer, adorned with ancient Equestrian script, strapped to his back. Only the guards had knowledge of what had happened. They knew that Shining had not only passed the trials, but had also shown that an inner light existed in him, a light the sisters had been waiting eons for. As such, they had chosen him to become the knight to lead the entire armada of Royal Guards, a position that nopony had ever held before.

With a hammer on his back and magic to purge and protect, Shining was now known around battlefields as ‘Omniknight’.

His forcefield spell to protect Canterlot from evil and the Guardian Angel skill of Omniknight? Same.

Huzzah, nice Omniknight! My favourite, along with Dragon Knight

I love when the team yells at you to be a support then shuts up when you carry the carries instead, it's awesome :)

These are about more than just appearance. These about finding a character that closely resembles each pony in personality. Omniknight's still the same character, just with different clothes on. Don't worry about such things.

If Shining Armor had been a mare, I would represent her with the Legion Commander.

2. Recruits.

Hmm... Who would the Ice Apparition be though? I only used him before cause of his practically infinite range ulti :p

Fixed!

Ancient Apparition? Most probably I'm going to use the Windigo for that one

I was actually wondering if the filly from Snow Drop would be it... but I guess she ain't really evil enough to fit the Ice Apparition right? ... Right? >.>

Ah, poor Snowdrop XD but yeah she ain't really evil enough to be the ancient apparition.
A "throwback to dota 1" joke actually can be done by making Snowdrop the "Antimage" (antimage is blind in dota 1)

How about the unreleased Winter Wyvern? Seems like it would fit better as a Windigo.

:iconyudhaikeledai:
Yudhaikeledai Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yes Winter Wyvern is related to hate - but I'm thinking that Ancient Apparition is also a being made of hate, while also being old and legendary himself (Windigos, I assume are old creatures).

What is interesting is that both creatures have freezing related spells, which is trademark of the Windigo in the cartoon so I have to take that into account. Hmmm... Auroth or Ancient Apparition; what's your take on the 2?

HTML-Earth Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think Auroth fits better, because Windigos feed off fighting and hate. If you think of his ultimate, it makes sense because he makes his enemies fight each other. He's anti friendship, like the Windigos.

It means, "since young, Shining already aspire to join Royal Guards"

Yes, but a "filly" is a girl horse or pony. A young male is a colt, not a filly. :)
