Hello. Orion is a pretty ok Lord in my experience but the most obvious problem he has is lack of SPEED! See on TT Orion had 9 Movement Speed which is on par with Glade Riders. This is so he can actually "ride" with them and actually support them. Wood Elves very much rely on kiting even in this game, so giving the literal god-king of the Wood Elves the ability to do the same seems rather fitting. Also, much like everysingle character who isn't mounted and walks on two legs, he gets knocked around like a rag doll. It's embarrassing seeing Nakai getting tossed around since 2019, but it's even MORE embarrassing seeing a Demi God having the same thing happen since launch of the WE DLC back in 2016. My main proposal is 20-30+ speed, mass increase and/or knockdown immunity. I feel this is not too egregious seeing as how the Glady dominates WE Lord picks, I highly doubt we'd see Orion being a Meta pick.
I'm no expert like you lot, so I'd like to hear why this is a bad idea and shouldn't happen as I get the feeling I'm in the minority here and also if it is fine what should be done to balance it properly.
