Idle Champion Spotlight: Vin Ursa 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"Did anyone see how cool that was?!"

Some of the most deadly folk in Wildspace are also the most knowledgeable about the dangers travelers could encounter. That's why having a bounty hunter like Vin Ursa on your side is extremely helpful. If you need someone with the skills and information needed to get any job done, then this Plasmoid is the one you want to hire!

I. Vin Ursa

    Vin Ursa is one of the deadliest bounty hunters in Wildspace. Raised by a community of Autognome thieves and trained by a former Xaryxian assassin, Vin is an expert at completing dangerous jobs. To keep her skills honed, she spends much of her off time in the Arena of Blood. If there's one thing you should hope for in Wildspace, it's to avoid ending up on the wrong side of her L.A.S.E.R. sight.

Vin Ursa is a Support and Gold Find Champion who builds up a ledger of Favored Foes as you progress through an adventure. She supports the formation in capturing her Favored Foes and makes sure the extra reward is worth it. Once unlocked, her skills can be hired into slot 7 opposite Minsc.

III. Vin Ursa's Design

Creating a new CNE original character is an opportunity to stretch our D&D muscles, while also crafting someone who can help fill the gaps in our roster. Our Content Designer, Treavor Bettis, knew that we needed more evil and female Champions as well as races that have not appeared in our formations yet. With those specifications in mind, he crafted a plasmoid fighter/rogue who tries her best to be cool and suave. While her skills and abilities make her appear composed and effortlessly awesome, her personality is more exuberant and bubbly.

As a renown bounty hunter, Vin Ursa has traveled all across Wildspace, and is so comfortable among the stars that she can be used in any Light of Xanyxis adventure or variant. Being successful at this job requires knowing as much about your target as possible, so she'll study the monsters in the current adventure to add them to her roster of Favored Foes. This means everyone in the formation does extra damage against them, and they drop more gold when defeated. Vin Ursa's first Specialization increases the damage of Champions in either the Front Deck or the Rear Deck. Those in the Deck she has chosen will get an extra bonus to damage the more Favored Foes Vin Ursa is tracking. And because she's excellent at Contract Negotiations, using a Bounty Contract while she's in the formation will increase her Deck Specialization damage bonus even more!

A lone hunter can be dangerous, and Vin Ursa's L.A.S.E.R. attack skills are formidable. But she knows that working with a team can bring down even more dangerous prey. Her second Specialization decides what kind of team she will support with a damage bonus, either Good, Neutral, or Evil Champions. With her Ultimate she blasts an enemy, and if she crits she'll make that enemy type one of her Favored Foes so the rest of the team can help take the target down!

Vin Ursa has built her renown fighting some of the most terrifying creatures this side of the Abyss, and has a long list of Favored Foes to help your formation do the same!
