EDIT: The answer is #2/bolded. Thanks Guinsoo.

Mundo:
W: Burning Agony
Toggle: Dr. Mundo deals 40/55/70/85/100 (+0.2) magic damage to nearby enemies, and reduces the duration of crowd control effects on Dr Mundo by 25/30/35/40/45%.

I'm wondering how this works in order for the CC reduction to take effect:

1. Burning Agony has to be on AND stay on for the entire duration of the CC.

2. Burning Agony has to be on but DOES NOT have to stay on for the entire duration of the CC.

3. Burning Agony can be toggled on AFTER CC has taken effect AND has to stay on for the rest of the duration of the CC.

4. Burning Agony can be toggled on AFTER CC has taken effect but DOES NOT have to stay on for the entire duration of the CC.


In each of these cases the most efficient method to using Burning Agony as CC reduction is different. Do I just turn it on and then turn it back off as soon as I can? Do I have to have it on BEFORE I get hit with CC?

These are important questions for playing my man, Mundo.

Another question while I'm at it: How do Mercury Treads and Burning Agony stack? Additively or Multiplicatively?
Multiplicatively.

It stacks multiplicatively with other reduced duration effects.

Thanks again for your help, General.
Additively, Burning agony maxed and Merc Treads gives you 80% plus CC reduction. I remember I coder pointing this out in a guide but I do not remember which one.

yay! can't wait to link this to my guide.

So, just to be clear: when you say multiplicative means

40% reduction (treads) x 40% Reduction (from burning agony)

40% x 0.4 = .56% decreased debuff time instead of additive which would be 80%?

LOL @ the mundo peepz who always though it was 80%.

Also, this is glorious information about Burning Agony. Thanks, again Guinsoo.

WHAT!? i was sure that we had been told before it was additively!

56% cc reduction is quite a bit different than 80% :'(

oh well, at least i can still hope for a change to the xp system so i wont feel bad about playing mundo again.



PS. thanks for the clarification Guinsoo =D

All CC reduction is, and to the best of my knowledge always has been, multiplicative.

Guinsoo knows what he's talking about. Some other Riot employees who shall remain unnamed had been spreading the falsity that CC reductions stacked additively.

I wish I'd seen this thread so I could've provided my SUPER PRO ANSWER that I figured out the first time I played Mundo after the patch that gave burning agony his old passive.
