Some simple Volibear playability thingies
WE DID IT EVERYONE! GUESS WHO CAME! VOLTY DID! HE REALLY DID! http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...65607#32565607
This thread has clearly evolved to be much more than a few simple changes. It is very very clear right now that Riot has left Volibear out of the equation for the new S3 changes. His jungle is trashy, his top lane is impossible and his support is completely undesirable.
Some aspects of Volibear are very annoying and unfun to use.
1. His W stacks do not last long enough. Just a 1 second increase would make it so much more useable without actually changing the power of the ability.
2. His ultimate's cast time / animation is just horrid. If I use it before I enter a team fight by the time I reach my target it's half way done. If I use it in a team fight I stop moving and attacking for over half a second making it really hard to use properly.
(An idea for a new animation. A lightning bolt hits Volibear's helmet as he roars. Which would look better than just making Voli slide while using his ult)
3. A very very small range increase to his W just 25-50 range. (This ties in to point 1. I can be chasing a target and have my stacks fall off while they're just out of range)
(If #1 goes through #3 wouldn't need to.)
4. Tighter coding on his Q so that when I'm standing almost on top of someone (but not actually past them) it flings them away from me in the opposite direction of the way it should. (And sometimes if Volibear loses sight of his target while his Q is active he will stop and become unresponsive for a second or so)
(Perhaps Volibear could also ignore unit collision while his Q is active?)
5. A -0.5 second cd / rank for his W. With Darius being able to execute left and right all other executes become weaker. This makes it stronger and will likely put Voli in a slightly better place.
-----New suggestions (centered around the inevitable rework)-----
- His W becomes a nuke on a shorter cooldown that doesn't require stacks to cast, however having stacks greatly amplifies this abilities damage. No longer scales off health or acts like an execute (now scales off of AD).
- New passive (credit to Knight of Dusk for this idea)
Storm Armour (Passive)
Every time Volibear uses a skill he gains 3 charges of Storm Armour. For every charge, Volibear gains 2.5 armour and magic resistance. Volibear can have a maximum of 15 charges. Whenever Volibear gets struck by an enemy champion, his armour unleashes an electrical discharge reducing their armour and magic resistance by double the amount (5 AR/MR) for 3 seconds. This effect consumes 1 charge of Storm Armour.
- Q "bumps" away targets Volibear collides with during the movement speed burst (maybe just minions if it's too OP, the purpose is ignoring unit collision, but with a beary feel to it)

Edit 12: After speaking with Morello and Volty on Twitter my heart is completely broken in two. I was told by Volty that just to fix bugs and massive playability issues we would have to "drop power in other places". :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:( I have a feeling neither Morello or Volty have played a game as Volibear in a long long time.

I like bears.
Downvote without reasoning :(

The animation makes it appear he roars at their face. His mouth opens wide but doesn't close.
Dammit forums! The bear needs some loving!
This is silly.
