CommentsAugment

Mangleshell is one of two Split Heros available for Tortuns.  He is able to deal damage at mid to long range and to prevent most champions from attacking him through Intimidating and Frightful Blows.  Since most melees won’t be even able to attack him at all & most ranged units won't be able to counter Frightful Blows, he can safely navigate the frontlines of most maps without getting overwhelmed. 

Mangleshell's high cost is mitigated with his unique ability Pirate’s Treasure, which can grant a significant amount of nora upon his death.  In many cases, after he has been in play for long enough, one may actually wish for Mangleshell to die, since the Nora granted through Pirate's Treasure can, after a moderate amount of time, exceed the cost of the champion itself.

Recommended upgrades: intimidating for survivability and dread to support your other tortuns.
