I had an idea though i don't know how much QQ it will cause.

As Volty said before the 2 solutions for his animation for his ult are A) remove the animation (AKA being boring) or B) make it worthy of an animation.

so what I am thinking is to have its own stun effect for 0.75 seconds upon activation. This stun is not effected by tenacity. bonus points if riot can have the status read "You've been...Thunder Struck!"

Def agree that the second option is the most appealing. Make his ult creative and fun. Make it feel as though Volibear gains the power of the skies and lightning AND thunder flow within him gaining an additional form (similar to Nasus and Renekton) and then it will be an ultimate.

I think we can all agree that his ultimate needs a little extra spice.

Wonder how long it will take to see some action from Riot on this?

Imperative Roar

Volibear shouts words of lightning, sending out a ball of delicious electrical pain (Think Dragonborn for the visuals). All units hit by this roar...

Option one-InitiatorBear: instantly lose 70% of their movement speed but quickly regain the lost speed over 1.5 second
Option two-BruisiBear: are slowed for up to 60% based on how low hp the target is and takes X(+Y bonus AP) magical damage
Option three-TankiBear: are frozen in place for 1 second and deal Z% reduced damage for T seconds

...any minions or monsters caught in this roar are feared for 3 seconds

I believe Voli should go the way of an AP bruiser instead of sometimes 60% physical 15% magical, sometimes 55% magical 30% physical etc depending on the build (notice how these hybrid builds don't add to 100%)

It's also a wonderful homage to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L3DMJB8yGM (and a wonderful skin idea)
Moving a slow onto R, I would seek a different function for the new E.

Let's hope Volty is doing the same
I'm catching up now on the conversation...

Absolutely. Looking to adjust in ways that solve design problems--not just add power.

If you're talking about QoL changes please look at this other thread about Fiddlesticks. It's a small simple change that would make him feel so much better.
