Abilities:

    

The Relentless Storm (Passive)
"Volibear gains 3% attack speed whenever he deals damage, which stacks up to 5 times. 
Lightning Claws: At 5 stacks, Volibear's claws ignite with lightning, causing his basic attack to deal 11-60 (+40% AP) bonus magic damage to the 5 closest enemies. Volibear must deal damage within 6 seconds to maintain this effect."


Thundering Smash (Q)
14/13/12/11/10s Cooldown
50 Mana
"Volibear gains 10/15/20/25/30% movement speed for 4 seconds (or 20/30/40/50/60% towards enemy champions) and the ability to move through units. While active, Volibear's next basic attack deals 25/50/75/100/125 (+120% bAD) bonus damage and stuns the target for 1 second. 
Volibear becomes enraged if an enemy immobilizes him before he stuns a target, resetting this ability and its cooldown."

Frenzied Maul (W)
5s Cooldown
30/35/40/45/50 Mana
"Volibear mauls an enemy, dealing 10/35/60/85/110 (+100% tAD) (+6% bonus health) physical damage, applying on-hit effects, and wounding the target for 8 seconds. 
If Frenzied Maul is used on a wounded target, its damage is increased by 50% and Volibear restores 20/35/50/65/80 health + 8/10/12/14/16% of his missing health (50% effective against minions)."

Sky Splitter (E)
15s Cooldown
60 Mana
"After a delay, Volibear summons a lightning bolt at a target location. This deals 60/90/120/150/180 (+80% AP) (+7/8.5/10/11.5/13% of the target's maximum health) magic damage and slows enemies by 40% for 2 seconds. Damage against non-champions is capped at 100/200/300/400/500. 
If Volibear is inside the blast zone, he gains a shield equal to 15% of his maximum health (+80% AP) for 3 seconds."

Stormbringer (R)
160/140/120s Cooldown
100 Mana
"Volibear transforms and leaps toward a target location, gaining 200/400/600 health, 50 attack range, and the ability to move through units for the next 12 seconds. 
Upon landing, nearby enemy towers are disabled for 2/4/6 seconds and suffer 250/475/700 (+250% bAD) (+125% AP) physical damage. Nearby enemies are slowed by 50%, decaying over 1 second. Enemies directly underneath Volibear suffer 250/475/700 (+250% bAD) (+125% AP) physical damage.

Lore

In Client-Bio: "To those who still revere him, the Volibear is the storm made manifest. Destructive, wild, and stubbornly resolute, he existed before mortals walked the Freljord's tundra, and is fiercely protective of the lands that he and his demi-god kin created. Cultivating a deep hatred of civilization and the weakness it brought with it, he now fights to return to the old ways-- when the land was untamed, and blood spilled freely-- and eagerly battles all who oppose him, with tooth, claw, and thundering domination."

Volibear's biography was updated on his Universe Page:

The Thousand-Pierced Bear Availability + Info!

The Thousand-Pierced Bear is now available! Here's more details on it's release:
"To commemorate Volibear's update, we're giving away the Thousand-Pierced Bear skin to all players who owned Volibear prior to patch 10.11 and all players who purchase him during patch 10.11. Skins will start going out May 28, 1:00 PM PDT and will be distributed until June 10, 1:00 PM PDT. The giveaway happens on login, so if you purchase Volibear, you'll need to relog to get your skin. After this giveaway, the Thousand-Pierced Bear will become a regularly-purchasable skin for 975 RP
Why a free skin? 
When we released the first visual concepts for Volibear's update, we saw that some players were disappointed that we didn't take him in the eldritch horror direction he'd been portrayed as in a story on Universe
The team ultimately decided that direction didn't stay true enough to live Volibear to be used as the basis of his update, but wanted to take the concept across the finish line. 
Creating a free skin isn't something we plan on doing for future champion updates, but in this case we felt like it was the right call. We hope fans of Volibear's eldritch horror concept enjoy this one-time bonus!"

The Thousand-Pierced Bear

[Free to players who owned Volibear prior to Patch 10.11, 975 RP thereafter]
"Ancient Freljordian legends speak of spirit walkers consumed by the true spirit of the unrelenting bear—a force older than the Freljord itself. Those who dare to invoke its name cannot fathom the terrible, primal power they call down upon themselves."

Volibear, the Relentless Storm Champion Theme

Check out Volibear's champion theme:

"The official champion theme for Volibear, the Relentless Storm.  
This war-hymn of the Ursine appears to be a fragment of the much longer poem ‘Ode to Ruin,’ dating back to before the War of the Three Sisters. While some of the original words have no direct translation, the intent behind them is abundantly clear… 
The sky rumbles deeply, knowing him,
As the thunder calls out “Valhir!”
A memory of ancient and faded glory
Beckon from ages past, ever near 
Vorrijaard calls you!
And the wild heart within,
By tooth, and with claw, will return!
When Vorrijaard needs you
To answer the call,
Rise now! Together we stand tall! 
The ground trembles deeply, awaiting him
The wind howls, carrying the reek of iron,
And earth, starved for centuries, shall soon drink
The rains of war another time 
Vorrijaard calls you!
And the wild heart within,
By tooth, and with claw, will return!
When Vorrijaard needs you
To answer the call,
Rise now! Together we stand tall!
