The wait has been eternal for League of Legends , but UDYR’s Rework is finally ready for all players to enjoy it. Riot Games has already carried out the official presentation and has revealed that this second version of the character will be available in the PBE until its final introduction on live servers at the beginning of the next 12.16 patch. This situation, although we already knew the new skills of the spiritual walker, has allowed us to identify some details and value positive that is probably one of the best works in the history of the developer .
The only eliminated ability of UDYR reown
The most curious of the UDYR Rework are the few changes at the playable level. It is true that the champion has a renewed aesthetic and no longer invokes animals when using his powers. However, The new forms are very similar to the previous ones . The tiger posture may now be called the claw position or that the bear is a kind of ornn with new visual effects, but the functions are very similar. The effects and the way in which they apply, but League of Legends developers have managed to keep the identity of a champion who, after the Rework, could be played without hardly reading the adjustments.
The equivalences are very simple…
Claw position *: tiger form to hit with ad
Ferreo mantle : turtle form to get shield and healing
CALLANTEANT EMPTADE : bear form to run quickly and stun the rivals
* Winged Storm : Phoenix form to inflict damage in area that scale in AP
Despite the similarities, the novelties of the UDYR Rework point to a better combat performance. The character’s spells will be more notable and have additional characteristics. For example, the winged storm (former Phoenix) now slows the enemies and flashing stampede (old bear) can be improved to grant immunity to control purposes. However, despite these notable novelties, the new version of the champion does not reach League of Legends as a more powerful alternative. Thanks to a single eliminated ability that the community did not value in its fair measure, they have been able to include all these news.
We refer to passive, which allowed you to win up to 15 movement points permanently as long as it changed posture every three seconds. Eliminating this element is the great key that allows you to introduce all the news. It is a situation admitted by the developers themselves, who point out that their only additional concern in terms of balance was to reduce the power of the basic skills to increase the potential of the improved spells to which the champion has access every half minute and that work similar to a miniature ultimate.
Seen this way, it may seem a real madness of the League of Legends equilibrium team. However, UDYR Rework managers have data on your part . The speed of movement has always been undervalued by the community, but it is one of the ways in which Riot Games modifies the power of the champions without us noticing. The story has shown on numerous occasions. A great example is Kassadin, for which to reduce five points the speed of movement of it was a decrease of almost three percentage points in its victorious rate. In the case of the spiritual walker, the Nerf is three times larger.
Although launching skills without stopping is part of UDyr’s identity, developers trust that the news more than compensate for this small loss. In addition, they have not eliminated the little sprint that contributed the bear shape, which remains in the new E and can be enhanced with improved positions. The only change made by those responsible for the League of Legends balance is to make it a limited capacity to a specific moment. The key to a reown that has an impressive pint and that is also a design genius.
