All information about Volibear Rework : Sorts, lore, gameplay..
The storm is coming. The Volibear rework has just been presented by Riot Games. With even more lightning, and bears coming to fight. And an updated kit, but which wants to keep the original essence of the champion. New spells, gameplay, improved lore: here’s all you need to know about the Volibear update.
Release Date : The Volibear rework should arrive in patch 10.11 on May 28, 2020.
Passive skill and Volibear spells
Passive – The Relentless Storm
After inflicting damage on non-minion targets with 5 attacks or skills, Volibear’s legs ignite with lightning. Its basic attacks deal bonus magic damage to the closest enemies.
A – Thundering Smash
Volibear gets on its 4 legs and charges towards an enemy, leaps towards them and stuns the first enemy attacked.
Z – Frenzied Maul
Volibear bites his target and deals damage to it. Re-casting the spell on the same target deals bonus damage and heals Volibear.
After a delay, Volibear summons lightning to a location, inflicting damage and slowing enemies. If he is inside the impact zone, Volibear gains a shield.
R – Porteur de tempêtes
Volibear leaps into the air, inflicting damage while falling. It turns into a little more edgy, bigger and stronger bear. If it falls next to a turret, it temporarily deactivates it.
The rework of Volibear skins
Who says rework says new look for skins! If you can see the look of the different skins in the previous video, here are some new splash arts.
As a reminder, players who have Volibear or buy it in patch 10.11 will win the Volibear thousand spades skin for free. This is the horrific skin created to pay homage to the more demonic side of the bear in lore. This is the right artwork visible above.
New lore from Volibear
Riot took advantage of this update to refresh Volibear’s lore.
An event to celebrate the rework of Volibear
Big bears like to do ARAM, it’s well known. So to celebrate, Riot organized a small event. From May 9 at 5:30 a.m. to May 12 at 9 p.m., Volibear appears at the start of a game and destroys part of the bridge.
