  • Health-Per-5: 2.5
  • Range: 150


Rage Gene [ Passive ]

While in combat Gnar generates Fury. At maximum Fury, his next ability will transform him into Mega Gnar, granting increased survivability and access to new spells.


Boomerang Throw / Boulder Toss [ Q ]

Range: 1100 || Cooldown: 20/17.5/15/12.5/10 seconds

Mini Gnar: Throws a boomerang that deals 10 / 45 / 80 / 115 / 150 (+ 1.0 AD) physical damage and slows Movement Speed by 15/20/25/30/35% for 2 seconds before returning towards Gnar. Enemies hit beyond the first take 50% damage.

The returning boomerang will accelerate and can travel up to 2000 units. If Gnar catches it, the cooldown of Boomerang Throw is reduced by 60%.

Mega Gnar: Throws a boulder that stops when it hits an enemy, slowing all nearby enemies and dealing 10/50/90/130/170 (+) physical damage.

Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8 seconds. If Gnar picks up his boulder, the cooldown of Boulder Toss is reduced by 60%.


Hyper / Wallop [ W ]

Mini Gnar: Passive: Every 3rd attack or spell on the same target deals an additional 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 (+ 1.0 AP) + 6/8/10/12/14% of max HP as magic damage and grants Gnar 30% Movement Speed that decays over 3 seconds (max 75/125/175/225/275 damage vs. monsters). Gnar gains Hyper’s speed bonus whenever he turns from Big to Small.

Mega Gnar: Stuns enemies in an area for 1.25 seconds, dealing 25 / 45 / 65 / 85 / 105 (+ 1.0 AD) physical damage.


Hop / Crunch [ E ]

Range: 475  || Cooldown: 18/16.5/15/13.5/12 seconds

Mini Gnar: Leaps to a location, gaining 20/30/40/50/60% Attack Speed for 3 seconds. If Gnar lands on a unit he will bounce off of it, traveling further. Deals 20 / 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 (+ 6% of Gnar’s max HP) physical damage and slows briefly if the unit landed on was an enemy.

Mega Gnar: Leaps to a location and deals 20 / 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 (+ 6% of Gnar’s max HP) physical damage to all nearby enemies on landing. Enemies Gnar lands directly on top of are slowed briefly.

If Crunch is the ability used to trigger the Rage Gene, Gnar will still be able to perform Hop’s bounce. Gnar will apply Crunch’s area of effect both upon hopping from a unit and upon hitting the ground, although enemies can only be damaged once.


GNAR! [ R ]

Range: 590 || Cooldown: 120/100/80 seconds

Mini Gnar: Passive: Increases Hyper’s Movement Speed bonus to 45/60/75%.

Mega Gnar: Knocks all nearby enemies in the specified direction, dealing 200 / 300 / 400 (+ 0.2 bonus AD) physical damage and slowing them by 45% for 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds. Any enemy that hits a wall takes 300 / 450 / 600 (+ 0.3 bonus AD) physical damage and is stunned for 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 seconds.

Gnar Champion Select Quote & Portrait



Gnar_Square_0 GnarBig_Square





“The jungle does not forgive blindness. Every broken branch tells a story.

I’ve hunted every creature this jungle has to offer. I was certain there were no challenges left here, but now there is something new. Each track is the size of a tusklord; its claws like scimitars. It could rend a man in half. Finally, worthy prey.

As I stalk my prize through the jungle, I begin to see the damage this thing has wrought. I step into a misshapen circle of splintered trees. These giant wooden sentinels have stood over this land for countless ages, their iron-like hides untouched by the flimsy axes of anyone foolish enough to attempt to cut them down. This thing brushed them aside like they were twigs.

How can a creature with this level of strength disappear so easily? And yet, even though it has left this unmistakable trail of destruction, I have been unable to lay my eye upon it. How can it appear like a hurricane then fade into the jungle like the morning mist?

I thrill in anticipation of finally standing before this creature. It will make a tremendous trophy.

Passing through the clearing, I follow the sound of a stream to get my bearings once more. There I see a small shock of orange fur, crouching, waiting. I spy on it from a distance. A tiny fish splashes out of the stream and the creature scrambles for it, diving gleefully into the rushing water. To my joy, I realize it’s a yordle. And a hunter, at that!

This is a good omen. The beast will be found. Nothing will escape me.

The yordle’s large ears perk up and face towards me. He runs on all fours with a bone boomerang in hand, quickly stopping in front of me. He babbles.

I nod in appreciation at the young yordle and venture onwards. I traverse the difficult terrain with ease, trying to pick up any sign of my quarry. As I try to pick up his scent, a distraction. I’m startled by strange chittering. The yordle followed me. I cannot allow him to disrupt my hunt. I face him and point into the distance. He looks at me quizzically. I need to be more insistent, good omen or no.

I rear back and let out a roar, the wind whipping the yordle’s fur and the ground rumbling beneath us. After a few short seconds, he turns his head and, with what I think could be a smile, he holds up his small boomerang. There can be no further delay. I snatch the weapon out of his hand and expertly throw it into a tree, impaling it high amongst the branches. He turns and scrambles for it, jumping frantically.

I barely get ten paces when a roar shakes me to my very spine. The deafening crack of stone and wood echoes all around. Ahead, a giant tree crashes across my path. The bone weapon of the yordle juts out from its trunk.

An unearthly growl rises behind me.

I’ve made a terrible mistake.”

  • TPA_Ezreal

    Kass nerfs !!!.i see were my teleport is headed

  • Black Cat

    Do you need an arcade skin to have the summoner icon?

  • Jukani

    When will the patch come ?

    • http://newsoflegends.com/ Chefo

      I think Tuesday, as with all patches containing new champions. When the maintenance schedule is announced, I’ll post it on the site.

      • Craftystraw

        Do you know if the skins will be released on Tuesday too? Riot Kayle looks awesome and I’m looking forward to owning it.

      • Jukani

        you mean next week or ?

  • Cold-Fang64

    Gangplank in the background of Arcade Miss Fortune splash art :o

  • Sergeoff

    Woah, from now on Orianna is officially dead last in terms of base attack damage at any point of the game, 5 AD less than Karthus at level 1 and 1 AD less than Thresh at level 18. RIP AD Orianna Keepo

    • The Dunk

      5AD less but still deals 50 damage more.

  • Sater

    There are some formatting mistake in this article…
    In the Hyper / Wallop explanation of the skill, there is also a parto of Q’s tooltip (“Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8 seconds. If Gnar picks up his boulder, the cooldown of Boulder Toss is reduced by 60%)”. Also in the explanation of Boomerang Threow/Boulder toss there is the phrase “if Gnar catches his boomerang or picks up his buolder it’s cooldown is reduced by 60%”, which is not written in the tooltip. The phrase that I previous mentioned, “if gnar pick his boulder etc.”, should replace this one :)

    • http://newsoflegends.com/ Chefo

      Thanks! Fixed it in the article.

  • Shizzarky

    err no kogs w was unchanged sorry

  • Shizzarky

    man Kogmaw has been getting smashed, First base health reduction, then it was his w(I think)

  • Black Cat

    Arcade Sona feels stupid when looking at Arcade Miss Fortune, She actually uses Arcade things lol

  • Cooper

    Ehh, I’m happy and sad about the rengar nerf, it feels like he’s just going to become nocturne.

  • WhoFedKennen?

    poro summoner icons mean how long you play league :D?

    • Virgilyn Gantalao

      What about the PBE giving us the chance to gifts those Summoner Icons since they can be bought for RP only? What do you think?

    • http://newsoflegends.com/ Chefo

      Most likely they’re anniversary icons, yeah. Would be cool if the first one, the one without a number, is for people who’ve played since beta.

    • Virgilyn Gantalao

      too bad . don’t have the chance to have that first one.

  • Sadique Ahmed

    Wait a minute, wasn’t Gnar supposed to have like 450 range in the cute and cuddly form? o-0

    • http://newsoflegends.com/ Chefo

      Yeah. He technically has 150 base range and gets 250 bonus at level 1 in his mini form and +5 per level.

  • Piegan

    12 -> 20 seconds on Kassadin’s R wtf? They’re meant to be balancing him not making him unplayable…
