Urgot Champion Update

Urgot's large scope champion update is now on the PBE for testing, including a new kit, fearsome new voiceover, and an upgraded look for his base and skins.

Before we get into full details on the update, here's Riot MeMEMEMEME with a bugs & feedback thread for Urgot, the Dreadnought:
Now that you have a chance to destroy all that are too weak to be worthy with Urgot on PBE you may notice a bug, or two, with his shotgun knees, meat grinders, or gun. If a slight imperfection (Our Dreadnaught is perfection) is found, please let us know, and we will do what we can to make Urgot everything you need for patch 7.15. 
Also if you have any feedback around Urgot, and his skins, please drop it in here. 

Let's look at those shotgun knees:

Echoing Flames (Passive)
"Urgot's basic attacks and Purge trigger blasts of flame from his legs, dealing [(40/50/65/80/90/100 at 1/6/9/11/13/15)% of total AD] plus [4.5/5.25/6/7/8% at 1/6/9/13/15] of the target's max health as physical damage. 
[30/25/20/15/10 at 1/6/9/11/13, affected by CDR] second cooldown per leg. Consecutive hits ont he same target within 5 seconds deal 10% reduced damage (minimum 70%).
Maximum x to monsters."
  • Monster max damage: 25/45/65/85/105/125/145/165/185/205/225/245/265/285/305/325/345/365

Corrosive Charge (Q):
35/40/45/50/55 Mana12/11/10/9/8 sec Cooldown 
Urgot fires an explosive charge at the target location, dealing 25/70/115/160/205 (+70% AD) physical damage and slowing enemies hit by 45/50/55/60/65% for 1 second. 
Enemy champions hit by the blast are also locked onto.

Purge (W)
45/50/60/65/70 Mana
13/12/11/10/9 sec Cooldown 
For the next 4 seconds, Urgot shields himself for 60/90/120/150/180 (+30% bonus Health) and rapidly shoots the nearest enemy, prioritizing champions that are locked onto, triggering Echoing Flames whenever possible. While firing, Urgot is slowed by 125 movement speed but has 40% slow resistance. 
While Purge is active, Urgot can walk over minions and non-epic monsters but cannot basic attack normally. He shoots up to 3 times a second, dealing 12 (+20/24/28/32/36% AD) per shot. 
Damage is based on Urgot's attack damage, applies on-hit effects at 33% damage, and cannot critically strike. 
Deals a minimum of 50 damage to minions.

Disdain (E)
50 Mana
16/15/14/13/12 sec Cooldown 
Urgot charges in a direction. If he collides with an enemy champion, he will stop, stunning them for .75 second(s), and throwing them to the other side of him, dealing 60/100/140/180/220 (+50% AD) physical damage. Enemy champions hit are locked onto.  
Non-champions take the same damage but are knocked aside. 
Cannot cross terrain.

Fear Beyond Death (R)
100 Mana
120/95/70 sec Cooldown 
Urgot fires a chem-drill beacon that impales the first enemy champion hit, locking onto them, dealing 50/175/300 (+50% AD) physical damage, and slowing them by up to 75% movement speed for 3 seconds. 
If the target falls below 25% health while impaled, Urgot may recast the ability, lashing out with chains that suppress the target and drag them in for execution. This will happen automatically if the target is below the health threshold at the end of the effect.  
If Urgot successfully executes an enemy, he fears all nearby enemies for 1.5 seconds.  
The target's movement speed decreases based on their missing health.
Urgot cannot take other action while executing a target, and his death will end the event.


Here is Urgot's new voiceover, clocking in at over 16 minutes of new lines and interactions.

Urgot also has a lot to say when it comes to special interactions:

Urgot's updated champion pick and ban quotes were also added:

Pick: "You cannot know strength... Until you are broken."

Ban: "Cling to hope. It is all you have."


Here is the new in-client short form lore entry for Urgot, the Dreadnought:
"Once a powerful Noxian headsman, Urgot was betrayed by the empire for which he had killed so many. Bound in iron chains, he was forced to learn the true meaning of strength in the Dredge — a prison mine deep beneath Zaun. Emerging in a disaster that spread chaos throughout the city, he now casts an imposing shadow over its criminal underworld. Raising his victims on the very chains that once enslaved him, he will purge his new home of the unworthy, making it a crucible of pain."
As usual, look for his full lore and story later this patch on the NEXUS close to live release.
