League of Legends: Reworked Nunu
With the update 8.17, which is already live on the main servers, one of the older champions – Nunu – received a major rework which significantly changed all abilities of the champion as well as improved its visuals.
Nunu & Willump, The Boy and his Yeti
They’ll be the greatest heroes ever… one day! After Nunu discovered the fearsome monster of legend was just waiting for a good snowball fight, he and Willump became the best of friends. Now they roam from one adventure to the next, their imagination running wild and wintry magic making it real –unaware that they play with the power to save the Freljord.
PASSIVE: CALL OF THE FRELJORD
Damaging enemy champions, large monsters, or structures increases the attack and movement speed of Willump and a nearby ally for a few seconds (prioritizing the ally with the highest attack speed).
While Willump hears the Call of the Freljord, his basic attacks cleave the immediate area for a portion of the damage.
Willump takes a bite out of an enemy, dealing true damage to monsters and minions or magic damage to champions, and heals himself.
The heal is increased significantly when Nunu & Willump are low on health.
W: BIGGEST SNOWBALL EVER!
Willump starts rolling a snowball that grows in size and speed. Crashing the snowball into a wall, enemy champion, or large monster damages and knocks up nearby enemies. Reactivating the ability sends the snowball forward in straight line, damaging and knocking up minions in addition to champions and monsters.
The damage and duration of the knockup increases with the size of the snowball.
E: SNOWBALL BARRAGE
Nunu rapidly flings up to three volleys of snowballs for a few seconds, damaging champions and monsters and marking them Snowbound. Enemies hit by all three snowballs in a volley are briefly slowed.
When Snowball Barrage ends, all Snowbound enemies near Nunu & Willump are briefly rooted.
R: ABSOLUTE ZERO
Nunu & Willump sap heat from the area around them, gaining a shield and increasingly slowing enemies as they channel. Enemies still in the freezing zone when it reaches absolute zero take massive damage, increased based on the length of the channel.
Absolute Zero can be cancelled early, and channeling from brush or fog of war won’t reveal Nunu & Willump.
