Abilities Analysis

  • His passive grants him a shield if he doesn’t take damage for a few seconds. It also increases his champion size based on how much armor he has.

  • His Q is a single target spell that deals magic damage to an enemy and slows them. He then gains a percentage of the target’s movement speed for a few seconds.

  • His W has two parts. The passive component increases his armor by a percentage, and another percentage when his passive shield is up. The active component is an auto-reset that deals extra physical damage on-hit in a small AoE, based on his Armor and AP.

  • His E is an AoE slam around him, this damages and slows all nearby enemies, and reduces enemy attack speed for a few seconds. This scales with Armor and AP.

  • His ult allows him to dash to a nearby location, dealing massive AoE magic damage and knocking up all enemies. This can move through walls.
