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.

Voiceover

Volibear has a new voiceover:


Ban VO: "You have the heart of a weakling."

Choose VO: "Feel the power of the wild."

Non-English VO available on LeagueVoices!

Check out Volibear's special interactions:


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 update on his Universe Page:

Updated Skins
