Description

Lore: The unforgiving northern reaches of the Freljord are home to the Ursine, a fierce and warlike race that has endured the barren tundra for thousands of years. Their leader is a furious adversary who commands the force of lightning to strike fear within his foes: Volibear. Both a warrior and a mystic, Volibear seeks to defend the ancient ways and the warrior spirit of his tribe.

Though history recorded their once legendary feats in battle, the Ursine now lived in tranquil seclusion. The warriors were headed by a triumvirate of leaders who maintained a long-lived isolation, avoiding the petty affairs and conflicts of others. As shaman to the three, Volibear was a respected sage known for his insight. It was an era of unprecedented peace, but Volibear felt dread stirring within him. Prosperity was turning the tribe soft and weak, and many had long forgotten the sacred art of war. In time, Volibear felt the fire of their souls would be extinguished. When he revealed his misgivings to the triumvirate, they refused to listen and warned him to know his place.

Patch History

Patch Notes 7.9

  • BUGFIX:
    • Volibear's W - Frenzy attack speed bonus now increases as soon as he puts another skill point into it, rather than waiting until the buff falls off and is reapplied

Patch Notes 7.7

R can bounce to twice as many enemies.
Quote.png Whether you're a fan of armoured bears or not (who isn't?), a lot of Volibear’s abilities just aren’t satisfying to use. That's where our change to Thunder Claws is aimed: smashing enemies with giant lightning-imbued bear claws should feel goddamn cool. Unquote.png

ThunderClaws.jpg R - Thunder Claws

  • MAXIMUM BOUNCES: 4 ⇒ 8
  • CONNECT THE DOTS: There's now a small delay between bounces
  • LIGHTNING ROD: Thunder Claws is better at searching for additional targets before ending the chain early

Patch Notes 6.19

  • BUGFIX: Captain Volibear's golden shoulderpad (did you know it's called an epaulet? High fashion!) no longer disappears into his shoulder during one of his idle animations

Patch Notes 6.13

W damage and attack speed down at early ranks.
Quote.png When it comes to taking over games, Volibear’s dominated the jungle for a couple of patches now. Similar to Rammus, Voli relies on his powerful early ganks to transition into a mid-game meatshield. What’s out of line isn’t the strength of Volibear’s ganks, but his ability to keep up with his opponent’s jungle clears. We’re lowering his effectiveness when fighting monsters in the early game so teams that successfully respond to Volibear’s early aggression can maintain a meaningful lead come mid-game. Unquote.png

Frenzy.jpg W - Frenzy

  • DAMAGE: 80/125/170/215/260 ⇒ 60/110/160/210/260
  • ATTACK SPEED PER STACK: 8/11/14/17/20% ⇒ 4/8/12/16/20%

Patch Notes 5.22

this bug was unbearable
  • RollingThunder.jpg Q - Rolling Thunder
    • THUNDER CANCELLING: Attempting to cancel Rolling Thunder's attack no longer causes sluggish behavior

Patch Notes 5.16
Volibear explodes in lightning upon casting R.

"Invoking the legendary Ursine 'Thunder-Claws' technique should be a powerful moment for Volibear, but leaves much to be desired as enemies can just bearly escape when channeling. Rather than ditching the cast-time and removing the tradeoff for Voli entirely, we're making it better for him to use in combat (as well as feeling pretty epic) in all situations."

  • ThunderClaws.jpg R - Thunder Claws
    • NEW FLEECED LIGHTNING: Upon activation, lightning will chain outward from Volibear once and deal damage

Patch Notes 5.5
Bite a monster, get half your cooldown back. Winning!

  • Frenzy.jpg W - Frenzy
    • "NEW" TASTES LIKE RAPTORS: Refunds half of the cooldown if used on a monster

Patch Notes 5.1

  • Mass Texture Rebalance
    • Base, Northern Storm, Thunder Lord

Patch Notes 4.3

  • Frenzy.jpg W - Frenzy
    • BUGFIX: Fixed a bug where % increases to Volibear’s health were not being included in the bonus damage calculation

v3.05 Balance Update
Volibear was both an extremely powerful duelist as well as an almost guaranteed initiator for early skirmishes. In order to preserve his presence as a threatening fighter, these changes instead reduce Volibear's ability to force engagements early on.
