 Warwick Champion Update Changes

Warwick's large scope champion update continues PBE testing in the 7.2 PBE cycle and today's update includes many non-English VOs and small tweaks to two of Warwick's update skins:

Several non-English Warwick voiceovers added:

Feral Warwick's W active's model swap changes to yellow from red. Grey Warwick Wactive model swap changed to light blue instead of red - look for recolored VFX for these two skins to hit the PBE soon!

Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical or experimental changes. Be aware that what you see below may be lacking context or other changes that didn't make it in or were implemented in an earlier patch this cycle! These are not official notes.

    • Total AD ratio lowered to 50% from 55% (currently 65% on live)
    • [Auto attack reset removal should be REVERTED - back to live functionality]

  • Base health increased to 540 from 511.2
  • Bushwhack (W):  W's traps are now invisible - they can be revealed and destroyed.
    • Traps have 6 total health - Melee hits do 3 damage (2 hits total to destroy) and Ranged hits do 2 damage (3 hits total to destroy).
    • Destroying Nidalee's W traps grant 10 gold to killer.
    • Now only 4/6/8/10 ( at levels 1/6/11/16.) traps may be active at once.
    • [NOTE: While it still says revealing in E's tooltip, mention of trap granting true sight moved to passive tooltip for HUNT.]

"FYI: The Warwick texture changes on Feral and Grey will be accompanied by additional recolored VFX for both those skins later this week."
