I've been playing Volibear pretty much exclusively the past 3 days and I've been doing really well with him in the jungle. Cheaper health, better itemization (health items, tenacity options, slow reduction boots), and better defensive masteries (tenacity + slow reduction), and bearier are all amazing on him. They make him really almost unstoppable with a full build.
I still reaaaaallly think that his W stacks need to last a bit longer (+1 second minimum, +2 seconds would be amazing). That's honestly his biggest issue at the moment. He doesn't need much more help to be honest, although making his R have no delay would be a nice change as well.
It'd be really easy to make voli pretty overpowered if the wrong things are buffed in the wrong ways. As it stand's he's pretty solid.
RIOT I approve this bear for the Volibear design team. This is what I think all of us fellow bears wanted but could not put into words. Volty please if you are still keeping up with this thread then take this whole post into consideration. Just the ideas are wonderful. Run it by Morello and see how it balances out. This just adds so much bear flavor to Volibear so much flavor for such a great champion. VOLTY READ BELOW PLEASE.
Thought about something yesterday while playing support bear. Would it be possible to get some sort of visual effect to show your allies if you have your passive up? (just your team, not the enemy team, that would blow SO HARD) It makes it easier when your supporting/starting a fight by letting your pals know that you're not running in trying to get yourself killed but actually trying to safely bait.
Sometimes you don't have the time to type into chat, especially when you're Voli, constantly looking for that split second someone suddenly happened into a prime position for a Q -> E combo and have to act immediately.
