Champion Spotlight

Before we jump into the full details, here's Nunu & Willump's updated champion spotlight:

Stats & Abilities

  • HP Per Level: 65
  • Mana: 283
  • HP Regen: 1
  • Base MR: 32
  • MR Per Level: 1.488

  • Base Armor: 32
  • Attack Speed: 0.625
  • Base Move Speed: 345
  • Attack Range: 125

Call of the Freljord (Passive)
Dealing damage to enemy champions, large monsters, or structures grants Willump and his ally nearby with the highest attack speed Call of the Freljord, increasing their attack speed by 20% and movement speed by 10% for 4 seconds. 
While Nunu & Willump are under the effects of Call of the Freljord, their basic attacks cleave for [30% tAD] damage. 
The duration stacks but the effect can only occur once every 10 seconds per target.

Consume (Q)
60 Mana
12/11/10/9/8 sec Cooldown
Willump takes a bite of an enemy, dealing damage and healing himself. This healing increases by 50% when he is below 50% health. 
Monsters and minions: Deals [340/500/660/820/980] true damage and heals for [75/120/165/210/255] (+50% AP)(+10% Health). 
Champions: Deals [60/100/140/180/220] (+50% AP)(+5% Health) magic damage and heals for [half of monster and minion heal](+25% AP)(+5% Health).

Biggest Snowball Ever! (W)
50/55/60/65/70 Mana
14 sec Cooldown
Willump rolls a snowball that grows in size and speed. The larger the snowball, the more damage it deals and the longer it knocks up. 
When the snowball impacts a wall, enemy champion, or large monster, it explodes, dealing up to 180/225/270/315/360 (+150% AP) damage to nearby enemies and knocking them up. 
Reactivating the ability rolls the snowball forward on a straight path. 
Continuously turning in the same direction increases Willump's turn rate over time. This bonus starts over when changing turn direction.

Snowball Barrage (E)
50/55/60/65/70 Mana
14 sec Cooldown
For 3 seconds, each additional cast causes Nunu to throw 3 snowballs at a rapid rate. Enemies hit take [16/24/32/40/48] (+5% AP) magic damage, and champions and large monsters become Snowbound. Enemies hit 3 times are slowed by 50% for 1 second. 
Willump's Turn: After Nunu is finished throwing snowballs, all enemies within range that are Snowbound become rooted in place for [.5 at level 1 + .0588s per level] seconds. 
Nunu can cast Snowball Barrage up to 3 times before Willump's Turn. 
Nunu can only slow each enemy once with Snowball Barrage.

Absolute Zero (R)
100 Mana
110/100/90 sec Cooldown
Willump channels for 3 seconds, sapping the area of heat. Nearby enemies have their Movement Speed slowed by 50%, increasing to 95% over the duration of the channel. Nunu and Willump receive a shield that absorbs 65/75/85 (30/40/50% Health) damage, decaying over 3 seconds after the channel ends.
Enemies caught in the area when the channel ends take up to 625/925/1275 (+250% AP) magic damage, depending on how long Absolute Zero was channeled.

Nunu & Willump's biography was updated over on their Universe page!

Short Bio:
"Once upon a time, there was a boy who wanted to prove he was a hero by slaying a fearsome monster—only to discover that the beast, a lonely and magical yeti, merely needed a friend. Bound together by ancient power and a shared love of snowballs, Nunu and Willump now ramble wildly across the Freljord, breathing life into imagined adventures. They hope that somewhere out there, they will find Nunu's mother. If they can save her, maybe they will be heroes after all…"
