Notes

  • Ravenous Hydra can only be purchased by melee champions and shapeshifter champions with a melee form, its passive and active cannot be used when performing ranged basic attacks.
  • Activating Crescent does not reset the auto-attack timer. Rather, the effect uses the champion's auto attack animation to display the effect.
    • Crescent casts faster as you gain more attack speed.
  • Crescent's damage procs  The Black Cleaver's passive effect, but doesn't benefit from lifesteal.
  • GangplankSquare.png Gangplank's Parrrley and PoppySquare.png Poppy's Iron Ambassador are the only abilities that can apply on-hit effects as melee attacks while behaving as ranged attacks.

Trivia

  • Searching for "no damage" in the shop will bring up Ravenous Hydra. While there were many speculated reasons for this, in actuality it is because of the "no" in "RaveNOus" and "Damage" in its listed stats (+80 attack damage); the item can just as easily be found searching "Raven Age" or "Dam us".
  • This item is very similar to the DotA item Battle fury.
  • Along with  Titanic Hydra, Ravenous Hydra borrows its namesake from the Hydra, a many-headed beast.

Patch History

v7.9

ATTACK DAMAGE : [75] 80


v6.6
Build path is less ugly.

With the lower attack damage on Tiamat, we realized we could make the build smoother by subbing out the Long Sword for a Pickaxe.

So we did that.

RECIPE : [Tiamat + Vampiric Scepter + Long Sword + 1050 gold] Tiamat + Vampiric Scepter + Pickaxe + 525 gold


v6.4
Hydra's can no longer be swapped into one another.

While this was a neat idea, in practice being able to swap for no cost presents us with some balancing difficulties. Key among them is the smoother build of Titanic Hydra - letting champions with an intended weakness in their early-game bulk up at no cost to their late-game damage scaling. Rather than continuously tune them based on their relative power (instead of how useful they are to their core users), we're separating the Hydras for good. Goodnight, sweet serpent prince-swapping. You were too beautiful for this world.

BETTER THAN ONE Can no longer sidegrade the Hydras into one another


v6.1
Cost down.

The Hydras are doing well once purchased, but often feel like they take forever to get completed. Along Tiamat's cost being shaved, a reduction in Ravenous Hydra should make them easier to complete.

COMBINE COST : [1100 gold] 1050 gold
TOTAL COST : [3600 gold] 3500 gold


v5.22
hungry hungry hydra

We'd intended Titanic and Ravenous (the two 'heads' of the hydra) to be interchangeable all along, but Titanic's awkward build-path led to some complications. With Tiamat being cheaper and more accessible, we're executing on that now.

Gameplay-wise this lets you customize your type of builds on the fly, but it's also just really cool.

TOTAL cost : [3300 gold] 3600 gold
BUILD path : Tiamat + Vampiric Scepter + Long Sword + 1100 gold
MANY-HEADED HORROR : You can now freely exchange between Ravenous Hydra and Titanic Hydra
