Brian McElroy's Guide to GMAT Test Prep (cross post from Amazon Reviews)
I am a Harvard grad, 99% GMAT scorer and professional GMAT tutor since 2002, and am fairly obsessed with this test. I also take the GMAT once every few years to stay up-to-date, including personal bests of 770 composite, 50Q, 48V, 8 IR (2 times) and 6.0 AWA (4 times). The GMAT Official Guide 2018 Bundle (currently $49) receives my strong recommendation because it provides a great source of real GMAT questions at a decent price.
The GMAT Official Guide 2018 Bundle includes the following 3 books, which you might want to consider purchasing separately (the product listings for the individual books also include the option to purchase the Kindle e-book versions):
1) The GMAT Official Guide 2018: GMAT Official Guide 2018: Book + Online (Official Guide for Gmat Review) 2) The GMAT Official Guide 2018 Verbal Review: GMAT Official Guide 2018 Verbal Review: Book + Online (Official Guide for Gmat Verbal Review) 3) The GMAT Official Guide 2018 Quantitative Review: GMAT Official Guide 2018 Quantitative Review: Book + Online (Official Guide for Gmat Quantitative Review)
One aspect of these books that you must understand is that they are not meant to teach you GMAT test-taking strategy. For that, look elsewhere (see product links below). However, they include some of the very best practice materials available, straight from the test-maker, and although the answer explanations are often convoluted, they are still useful in understanding how the GMAC thinks.
Why are the 2018 Official Guides the very best place to start your GMAT preparation, other than the free GMATPrep software? Because the questions in these books are super-realistic. They are just like the questions on the real GMAT, because these books are written by the test-maker and use actual, retired GMAT questions. Don't waste your time and money practicing on questions made by any other companies--these are merely inferior imitations of the real thing. If you must use other materials for test strategy, then that's fine, and in most cases necessary, but try your best to stick to official questions whenever possible.
Pro tip: You can take each of the 6 GMAT Prep CATs more than once, because the GMAT is an adaptive test (it adjusts the difficulty level of later questions based on your previous responses). There are about 4 to 16 times as many questions in the GMAC's question pool as there are in any given test, which means that every test you take will be different. Tests 1 and 2 draw from a (gigantic!) pool of about 1,500 questions, and tests 3, 4, 5, and 6 draw from a more modest pool of about 400 questions each. To re-take your GMAT Prep tests, click "reset" in the lower-left hand corner of the GMAT Prep software window, but make sure to take screenshots of your previous test sessions beforehand--frequent screenshots are a good idea anyway because the software is prone to crashing and losing your data. For your screenshots, use either the "Print Screen" (Windows Key + PrtScn) button on a PC or (Shift + Command + 3) on a Mac.
It's important to remember that although physical GMAT books are extremely helpful, the GMAT is still a computer-based test, which means that you should still spend at least 50% of your preparation time reading a screen instead of reading a piece of paper. For this reason, consider buying the Kindle versions of the guides, as well as making full use of the computer-based practice options (Exam Packs, Question Packs, Mobile App, etc.) available from the GMAC (see detailed product links below). Or, if you prefer to buy the physical books, then you can also use the access codes located in the sealed pouches in the back covers of the books to access a free web-based version of the books, where you can try most of the questions in the books in an online format, and organize quizzes by question type / difficulty level (easy, medium, hard). You will also have to create a Wiley account, which is mostly painless. I strongly suggest that you save your login information on your browser so that you won’t have to enter your username / password every time you access the Wiley site.
Instead of giving you a paper and pencil, the GMAC also requires you to use a water-based maker and a laminated sheet like this one: Manhattan GMAT Test Simulation Booklet w/ Marker I don't recommend always using the laminated sheet when you study, because it's messy and harder to keep track of your notes that way. But it makes sense to at least use it a few times, just to get the feel of it before test day. ——
“220 NEVER-BEFORE SEEN QUESTIONS” / 15% NEW QUESTIONS
Approximately 15% of the questions in these 2018 editions of the OG are new to the Official Guides. However, it is worth noting that “never before seen” is not entirely true, since all of these questions are retired questions from past GMAT computer exams (it says so right there on the cover). A more accurate description would be “never before seen on paper,” but that probably wouldn’t sell as many copies.
(For explanations and classifications of every question in the 2017 Official Guide, google "GMAT Club Guide to the GMAT Official Guide 2017.”)
Are the questions from the 2018 versions any better than the questions they are replacing from the 2017 edition? No, not really. All of the questions in the books are old questions from past GMAT exams (“retired questions”), so there is no guarantee that these 220 “new” questions are either any newer or any more helpful than are the questions they supplant from the 2017 Editions of the OGs. Moreover, early adopters of the 2018 editions will find that certain questions are so new that it’s hard to access online explanations until GMAT tutors like me (GMATClub username: mcelroytutoring) start posting them, which could take weeks or even months.
While I will concede that the questions in this book are roughly ordered from easy to hard, there are some curious places where low-numbered questions are quite difficult for most of my students, and vice-versa. Thus, I think that we can’t necessarily take GMAC at its word here, especially since there has already been evidence in past official guides of the GMAC moving the exact same questions to radically different locations in the books, which suggests that we shouldn’t trust the GMAC at its word in this regard. If the questions are truly ordered from easy to hard, for example, then why would a question numbered in the 30s suddenly show up numbered in the 90s in the next year’s edition? — —
A WARNING ABOUT THE DIFFICULTY LEVEL OF THE QUESTIONS IN THE OFFICIAL GUIDES:
It is important to note that the difficulty level of questions in these books is sufficient for most test takers, but is admittedly a bit lacking on the high end. High scorers take note: If you are aiming for a GMAT score of 700-plus, then you should spend more time practicing on questions from the GMATPrep software and Exams Pack 1 and 2, which offer more difficult questions that will bear a closer resemblance to the questions you will see on your actual test day.
Remember: the GMAT is an adaptive exam. If you answer a lot of questions right, then the test keeps getting harder (as your score rises), and if you answer a lot of questions wrong, then the test keeps getting easier (as your score lowers). And especially on the Quant section, the questions on the test are “front-loaded” so that the first 1/3 of questions have a much larger impact on your score than does the final 1/3 of questions. (There is a SEVERE penalty for not finishing the sections, however, so make sure that you give yourself time answer all the questions before time expires, even if they are just random guesses. At all costs, make sure to answer every question before time expires.)
If you do run out of official GMAT Prep computer tests (the first two are free, and you can buy four more from GMAC), then I can recommend the Manhattan GMAT CATs (computer adaptive tests). Just buy one book from the Manhattan GMAT series, and it will give you access to all 6 online CATs: GMAT Sentence Correction (Manhattan Prep GMAT Strategy Guides)
For free video explanations to all the math questions in these books, google "GMAT Quantum," or if you prefer to read your explanations, then just try google searching the first few lines of your question's text. I would also strongly recommend that you check out informative websites such as GMAT Club, Beat the GMAT, and Atlantic GMAT, and that you consider retaining the services of a qualified private tutor such as myself. — —
For those of you who are just getting started, here is the overall structure of the GMAT:
1) Analysis of an Argument Essay (AWA or Analytical Writing Assessment): 30 minutes, 1 question. 2) Integrated Reasoning (Multi-Source Reasoning, Table Analysis, Graphics Interpretation, Two Part Analysis): 30 minutes, 12 questions. Please note: unlike the Verbal and Quantitative sections, the IR section is not adaptive. For this reason, every time you try a GMATPrep Exam you will see the same 12 IR questions. 3) Optional 8-minute break 4) Quantitative Section (Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency): 75 minutes, 37 questions (2 minutes per question) 5) Optional 8-minute break 6) Verbal Section (Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, Sentence Correction): 75 minutes, 41 questions (1.8 minutes per question)
The GMAC also recently rolled out a program, starting July 11, 2017, where GMAT test-takers are now able to select (out of 3 possible options) the order of their test sections! This promises to be a huge advantage, because the Verbal and Quant sections, which are not only the two toughest sections of the GMAT, but also the only two sections that contribute to one’s 200-800 composite score, have always been located at the end of the 4-hour test, when it’s harder to maintain focus. Now, you will have the option to choose 1) Quant, 2) Verbal, 3) IR and 4) AWA or 1) Verbal, 2) Quant, 3) IR and 4) AWA. Personally, I prefer the final option.
Keep in mind that on the GMAT you cannot go back or skip any questions, and that the first 12-15 questions of the Verbal and Quantitative sections have the most impact on your score due to the adaptive scoring algorithm. A correct answer will yield a slightly harder question in most cases, and vice versa, and the GMAT will gradually determine your score as you go. The largest adjustments are made at the beginning of the test, which is why the first 1/3 of questions are so essential. Also, approximately 10 to 25% of the questions on the actual GMAT (and 4 of the 12 IR questions) are experimental—you don’t know which ones they are, and they don’t count toward your score.
HOW TO STUDY FOR THE GMAT:
My core philosophy: use official GMAT questions only! It’s OK if you end up memorizing all the solutions and answers—that’s part of the point, as is repetition of certain questions until you fully understand them. There are thousands of real GMAT questions available from the GMAC, so it’s unlikely that you will ever run out. Imitation questions are not quite the same, so why settle for anything less than the real deal?
For purposes of brevity, I am only including a one-month study plan, but the truth is that most students need at least 3-6 months to study for the GMAT. To turn this 1-month study plan into a 3-month or 6-month study plan, simply break the study plan into smaller increments.
Ideally, your studying should be done at regular intervals throughout the day, instead of one large chunk, to maximize retention. Take frequent breaks, but also try to get used to working for 4 hours straight at least once a week, to simulate test conditions.
If you don’t have time to take a full section, then don’t use the GMAT Prep Exams, because you will need to finish the entire test in order to review the questions afterward. Even if you only want to try a Quant section, for example, you will have to click through the rest of the test, or wait for time to expire, which is annoying. Better to use the Question Packs, the OGs or the Mobile App for smaller increments of time. Also, if you’re a Mac user like me, then you should know that the “Escape” button does not work on the GMAT Prep software. Instead, try (Command + Tab) to switch to other open applications.
Don’t forget to utilize GMAT club for explanations to any questions whose explanations in the books don’t make sense. Just google search the first few lines of your question’s text. — —
MY RECOMMENDED GMAT STUDY PLAN:
"Section" = a timed, scored section from the GMATPrep Software (Exams 1 through 6). Helps you practice test-taking techniques, and leveraging the GMAT algorithm. "Practice" = unscored (no composite score, only correct/incorrect) and the time limit is less strict. Take as long as you need for understanding.
Remember that you don’t necessarily need to pay for Exam Packs 1 and 2, because there are approximately 1,500 potential questions in (free) Exams 1 and 2, so you can just keep resetting the tests and using them again. The IR sections will be exactly the same (not adaptive!), but the quant and verbal sections will be different every time.
Another option is to install the GMAT Prep software on 2 different computers. 2 different computers = 2 different versions of the test = nearly twice as many questions to practice.
Here is a sample weekly schedule that I would recommend IF YOU ARE TRYING TO PREPARE IN ONLY ONE MONTH (see modifications for 2-6 month study plans below).

Here are my modifications for 2-6 month study plans:
2-month study plan: complete 3 assignments (numbered above) per day. 3-month study plan: complete 2 assignments per day. 4-month study plan: complete 1-2 assignments per day. 6-month study plan: complete 1 assignment per day.

A QUICK AND IMPORTANT NOTE ON HOW TO REVIEW INCORRECTLY ANSWERED GMAT QUESTIONS:
Yes, the correct answers (along with mildly helpful explanations) are all right there in the books. But at all costs, don’t check the correct answer right away, because in many ways it ruins the utility of that question.
When it comes time to re-try the questions that you answered incorrectly, I recommend that you either buy a 2nd copy of the books to keep blank, or that you simply re-try the questions on your computer screen…BEFORE checking the answer. It's what I call a "blind review": going over all the questions you got wrong without first checking the correct answeexplanation, or seeing any of your previous work.
Yes, I know…when you get something wrong that you thought you got right, your first instinct is to immediately check the correct answer choice. However, try your best to avoid this temptation.
In my opinion, blind review is one of the key facets of effective test prep. Thus, when using the physical book, you should only mark your answers in the book as correct or incorrect (this is easier when working with a partner). Most importantly, don't write down or look at the correct answers before you get a chance to review / re-try them at least once.
Obviously, this type of study is much easier with a partner. If you’re working by yourself out of the physical books or the Kindle editions, then there is no way to check your answers without actually looking at the correct letter answers. So, if you’re studying solo, then I recommend that you write your answers—only your answers, not your work— on a separate sheet of paper. Do at least 40 questions at a time, to get a feel for what a GMAT Quant or Verbal section feels like. When you correct them, don’t indicate the correct answers in the book yet—simply mark incorrect answers as incorrect. And try to correct your questions all at once instead of one at a time, so that when you review the actual question afterward, you are less likely to remember the correct answer.
In contrast, if you go over questions by checking the correct answers right away, then you can create false confidence by fooling yourself into thinking that you understand the questions fully, when in fact you are still prone to those types of mistakes. The best way to know for sure is to try the questions again, from scratch, *without* the aid of the answer key, your previous answer, or the answer explanations. Only then should you confirm the correct answer and read the explanation provided. — — Here are my recommended GMAT Resources:

Princeton and Kaplan are OK for strategy too. I prefer Princeton Review’s GMAT guide (full disclosure: P.R. is my former employer) to Kaplan’s (in my humble opinion, a mediocre, corporate behemoth who somehow always manages to rank #1 on Amazon with lots of suspect 5-star reviews), but any effort to write an "all in one" guide to a test as complex as the GMAT is destined to be at least a partial failure. The Kaplan and Princeton guides can be helpful if you are a below-average scorer trying to obtain an above-average score without too much effort, but the perfectionists among us will be frustrated by their lack of depth and unrealistic practice questions.

Adelaide, the Shieldmaiden of Demacia
Adelaide, the Shieldmaiden of Demacia
MageBeen a while since I wrote a concept, so in the spirit of the contest, I designed a concept that matches the requirements of the contest. Except being in a team of course, so this isn't going to be an actual contest entry. I've done all I can to accomplish all the requirements alone. That being said, I can only expect great things from all the other teams.
SUMMARYAdelaide is a lane-flexible mage with high range and survivability. She gains power and shield from successfully casting her skills at her enemies. Her ultimate allows her to safely cast spells even further from a distance by casting them from an allied champion’s location, providing support from anywhere in the map.
BACKGROUNDThough yet to share the throne, Adelaide has the proper posturing of a Queen. Raised in House Bellafonte, she was bred to become a potential wife for the next heir to the Demacian throne, like many of the noble houses often hoped when raising their daughters. Unlike the rest of the heir's suitors, Adelaide held a deep fascination with magic. This caused many ill rumors of her charming the heir with black magic, but Jarvan IV denies any such notion. Others like to believe it was her beauty and style that glamoured many a man. But few believe the reason she was chosen were because of her power, both military and political. Regardless of either reason, Adelaide does not feel any special affection towards the would-be king, making their feelings towards each other mutual. Nonetheless, her support for her nation and strong desire to help lead it reflects in her continued service in the Demacian military.
CHARACTERAdelaide is an enigmatic woman, and furiously believes in order. She takes heart to importance of maintaining a proper appearance to inspire her fellow countrymen. Though vastly sophisticated, she is no stranger to war. She is as strategic as she is cunning, and ruthless as she is elegant. She fights like a devout Demacian, and wields magic to rival any other mage. She shares her country's animosity against Noxians, and is often prejudiced against non-Demacians that are of high standing. She often critiques them, always with a leveled amount of respect beneath her own. Due to her strong belief in order, Adelaide harbors a deep frustration against other countries struggling with their riotous internal affairs.
Despite her refined tastes, she has a weird fascination for odd creatures, such as finding those from the Void adorable.
APPEARANCEAdelaide wields a wand, and dresses herself in sophisticated finery. Her blue hair is spun around the top of her head and is netted with golden threads. Her white dress trimmed in blue flows evenly until it cuts off from the waist, where two flaps flow down between her legs. Her arms are adorned with many golden bracelets and jewelry, and a golden necklace so large appears as if it was draped over her shoulders.
Flying above her is her familiar Babylus, a petite grotesque winged creature that carries a crown above her head.

ABILITIES[Innate Passive] - Light of the Sovereign Values adjust at level 1 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 9 / 11 / 13 / 15 / 17
Adelaide gains a shield everytime she deals magic damage. Adelaide gains 10% of the damage done as Shield HP from minions or monsters hit, 15% if an enemy Champion is hit. Adelaide can gain up to 20 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 80 / 100 / 125 / 150 / 180 ( + 20% AP). Shield lasts for 5 seconds, and the duration is refreshed upon hitting an enemy unit with a spell.
[Q] - Maiden's Mirror
CAST RANGE: 600 | BEAM RANGE: 400 | SPEED: 1050 | COST: 45 / 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 Mana | CD: 5 / 4.5 / 4 / 3.50 / 3
Adelaide fires a light beam from a nearby point to a target direction, dealing 「 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 ( + 60% AP ) 」 magic damage to the target hit. The spell leaves a Mirror where it was cast from. Whenever Maiden's Mirror hits an enemy, the light beam bounces towards the nearest Mirror but stops upon colision of an enemy unit and deals 70% damage. If it successfully returns to a Mirror, it bounces back to its original direction and deals 100% damage. Light beams bounce towards a mirror only once. Up to 3 Mirrors can be present in the battlefield, and lasts for 20 seconds.
NOTE: Kind of like Viktor's E, hold-click where the beam starts and drag the direction the beam goes. The Mirror is untargetable and cannot be destroyed.
[W] - Golden Diadem
CAST RANGE: 800 | EFFECTIVE AOE: 275 | COST: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 Mana | CD: 7.25 / 6.5 / 5.75 / 5 / 4.25
Adelaide marks an area with her house insignia, making it explode after a short delay dealing 「 50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 ( + 50% AP) 」 magic damage to enemy units within the vicinity and stunning them for 「 1 / 1.25 / 1.50 / 1.75 / 2 」 seconds.
Golden Diadem can be cast on a Mirror to make it explode. It doubles in explosion range, but enemy units in the outer half of the explosion are slowed for 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60% for 「 1.5 / 2 / 2.50 / 3 / 3.5 」 seconds.
[E] - Vow of Brightness
CAST RANGE: 600 | MIRROR RANGE: 600 | BEAM RANGE: 400 | SPEED: 550 | COST: 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 mana | CD: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 / 8
Adelaide commands Babylus to charge to a target unit, blinding it for 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25 / 2.5 seconds and dealing 50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 ( + 40% AP). Nearby Mirrors will fire a light beam towards the target unit, but deals damage to the first unit hit. Light beams deals 「 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 ( + 25% AP) 」 magic damage, subsequent light beams deal 50% damage. Light beams do not bounce towards nearby mirrors.
If Maiden's Mirror successfully bounces from a Mirror, the cooldown is reduced by 3 seconds.
[R] - Queen's Favor
RANGE: Global | Cost: 100 Mana | CD: 110 / 100 / 90 seconds
Passive: Adelaide collects stray energy from her surroundings, granting her stacks of Royal Pain every time a nearby enemy unit receives magic damage. Stacks are not consumed with basic attacks unless it is at 50 or 100 stacks.
At 50 stacks, her next basic attack becomes enhanced, granting her 175 bonus attack range and deals bonus 10 / 15 / 20 ( + 20% AP) magic damage.
Maxed at 100 stacks, her next basic attack becomes even stronger, granting her 225 bonus attack range, doubling the bonus on-hit magic damage, and slightly knocks back her target.
Active: Adelaide sits on her throne, targets an allied Champion and begins channeling. After 2 seconds, Babylus follows above the target Champion, and all of her spells are cast from her familiar's location. Adelaide can move freely during the effect at a reduced 90% ( - 3% per 45 AP) movement speed, but cannot attack or cast spells from her location. Shieldmaiden is applied onto the target allied Champion, and benefits from magic damage the ally inflicts. Queen's Favor lasts for 4 / 5 / 6 seconds.
Babylus can perform a basic attack if Royal Pain is at 50 or 100 stacks. Queen's Favor can be recast early to end the spell.
Shieldmaiden lasts even after Queen's Favor has ended, but no longer gains shield hp from magic damage caused by the target ally. Queen's Favor will also not forcibly make the allied unit in combat, only Adelaide. That means special skills or items like Boots of Mobility on the ally won't get dispelled because of her, but Adelaide will. Adelaide cannot gain exp from killed units if she is too far away.
PLAYSTYLEAdelaide's ultimate is a strong support ability, granting her allies access to her aid from anywhere in the map. Her survivability helps her play mid lane even against matchups with strong harass, and perhaps make even top lane a possibility. Her passive, Light of the Sovereign, bulkens her up with a shield that stays up so long as she deals magic damage. Her Q, Maiden’s Mirror, is a linear skillshot that can be manipulated around the battlefield. Her W is a long ranged AOE stun, and her E is blinding spell that marks her enemy unit to be dealt with more damage from surrounding Mirrors. Her Ultimate, Queen’s Favor, allows her to cast spells from an allied Champion position, allowing her to bend magic her around the playfield while relaxing with some tea at the home base.
Golden Diadem is safe long range crowd control, but difficult to aim and land safely. Even if Adelaide perfectly anticipates where her target will be, a short delay warning can alert the enemy to dash out before otherwise becoming the victim of Adelaide's skill bombardment. Thus setting up a Mirror in advance for a slow may be a better alternative.
By level 3, she can keep up her shield constantly with carefully placed skills. Early on, her shield is useful enough against small amounts of damage, so it benefits her greatly to play aggressively. But playing aggressively doesn't mean without care. She has a lower HP than other champions, making her immensely vulnerable without her shield. Her high mana cost can also be a problem early on.
By late-game her shield HP won't be enough to save her from burst damage, but may be enough to save an ally. Queen's Favor allows her to cast freely without any fear of danger (so long as she's clear from the fight). This allows her to cast her skills more intuitively with only her allies at risk. Hopefully, she picked the right ally to cast it on. If her target ally dies, the skill gets cancelled, making it go back to its long cooldown without much benefit. Or worse, the ally avoids making any risks and retreats. Choosing the right target ally can turn the tide of a battle from afar, or allow her to setup her Mirrors before entering the fray herself.
BUILDCooldown reduction items are a core part of her kit, as all her skills benefit greatly from it. From allowing more chances for her shield to build up to granting her easier access to her combo and support skill.
Adelaide's skills tend to have a high mana cost, and the burden becomes clearer as the cooldown lowers. It always helps to have a few extra points of mana, such as investing in Tear or Rod of Ages. Investing in Athene's Grail can also solve both her mana regen and cooldown problems.
Her constant shield mechanic doesn't mean she's formidably tanky from the get go. Once all her skills are on cooldown, there's short window of opportunity when she can do nothing against it, especially against Champions with good crowd control. Being silenced also disables her from shielding up and lead to disastrous ends. Starting off with a Doran's ring is always a safe choice.
Rylai's Scepter can also prove useful to her, granting her fortitude to alleviate her low base HP. Like most immobile mages, landing her skills can be difficult and Rylai's can always help her land her spells easier. And since she struggles with mobility, a Zhonya's Hourglass is perfect for her. It allows her to survive longer, grant more cooldown reduction, and prevents her from dying with its active.

INSIGHTSOriginally, Adelaide's innate passive granted her cooldown reduction for each spell that bypassed the cd reduction limit. Then as I got to building her kit, it was difficult to make it centered around it all the while balancing it. So instead, I built her with slightly lower cooldowns and removed that passive entirely. The main idea was to make all her spells deal damage from afar since it revolved in making Queen's Favor work in coherence. That meant no blinks are dashes, so she was set in stone to becoming an immobile mage. That meant needing to give her other tools for survivability. I had the choice of spell vamp, shield, or other ways of making her tanky (more max HP or something). But it still had to work with Queen's Favor without becoming uninteresting. So the spellhit-shield function came alive. Balancing it seemed like hell for me. It was either the no-cooldown-low-shield-HP it is now, or high shield HP with cooldown. Playing with the cooldown made her more erratic to play as though, so I opted for the former.
Maiden's Mirror used to be Maiden's Kiss which functioned on a charge based system, and was closer to a simple AP Ezreal Q. Much of her skills were based on already existing mechanics in-game, so I opted to try a different feel with her. Her W - E used to work as a stun and grab, causing her to be more reliable on whoever she uses her ult on. But it was too dull, and had too many similarities with already existing champions. I kept her W, but added more functionality with her Q instead.
I originally had the idea of Golden Diadem painting an area with the Demacian symbol on the ground, and then enemies hit with her original E while standing on the symbol are dragged towards her. While the painted area made pulling more reliable, this made both skills highly reliant on each other for combos. It also made Queen's Favor less ally friendly, which destroys the purpose due to its longer cooldown early on especially when Queen's Favor's skill duration was short.
As for her E, it used to drag stunned units closer towards her. That felt strange for an immobile mage that dealt damage from afar, and made luring them closer made absolutely no sense despite her shield mechanic. And since most of her damage already came from the reworked Q, I opted to make it a reliable safety spell that could also be used as a heavy nuke once she sets up her Mirrors.
The skill names mostly reflect who Adelaide is. Most notably is Golden Diadem. Not only is Diadem the symbol of the queen, the golden part is a nod to Jarvan IV's W, named Golden Aegis. I put a lot of thought onto naming them, since not only does it make the kit tasteful but also creative.
Queen's Favor's passive used to grant Adelaide AP based on her missing Mana. Early on it seemed like a good idea, but I then realized that by late game, Adelaide might pick up cooldown items that consequently grant mana regen (looking at you Chalice). This made the passive highly ambivalent, losing functionality and importance late game. So I opt for the passive it is now, granting her more ability to deal damage rather than consistently relying on skillfull placements of her mirrors.
As for her character, she's kind of a bitch. She's strong and confident, which are often at the same side at being arrogant and prideful. Her lore was geared to make Demacia look less like our run-of-the-mill good guys. Though inherently lawful, it doesn't mean they're all nice. This gives a darker edge to the nation, and her character reflects much of its hubris.
CONCLUSIONAnd thus ends my faux-contest entry. Hopefully, the teams can take elements of the formatting and make things easier for them. To be honest, despite the numerous functionalities of Adelaide's kit, her Ultimate - the main theme runner for the contest - is actually pretty simple. Hopefully, we get to see something more unique. Something we haven't seen as Queen's Favor is relatively similar to Shen's ult. In any case, I'm proud of what I've accomplished with my first ever female champ concept! :D
