 Check out the pirate duo’s update, a set of 6 pirate-themed skins and a new featured game mode!




Corsair Quinn’s Valor has been recolored to fit her theme. Note that the updated Valor only appears for her passive and Q for now (will make model screenshots when the bug is fixed).

Not a part of this update, but I missed adding the balance changes to Gangplank, so here they are:


Gangplank Final Portrait

General Box

  • Health-per-level decreased from 81 to 79
  • Base Attack Damage decreased from 59 to 56
  • Attack Speed-per-level increased from 2.75% to 3.2%
  • Armor per level decreased from 3.3 to 3

New Item BoxTrial by Fire Final IconTrial by Fire [ New Passive ]

Every 15 seconds, Gangplank’s next melee attack ignites the target, dealing 20 [+10 * Champion level] [+1.2 bonus AD] true damage over the next 1.5 seconds and granting 30% bonus Movement Speed for the next 2 seconds. Destroying a Powder Keg instantly refreshes Trial by Fire and grants Gangplank the Movement Speed bonus. Parrrley cannot activate Trial by Fire.


Buff BoxParrrley Final IconParrrley [ Q ]

  • Mana cost decreased from 50/55/60/65/70 to 50 at all ranks
  • For each Gold plundered by Parrrley, Gangplank gains a Silver Serpent that he can use at the shop to upgrade Cannon Barrage.


Change BoxRemove Scurvy Final IconRemove Scurvy [ W ]

  • Heal value changed from 80/150/220/290/360 [+1.0 AP] to 50/75/100/125/150 (+1.0 AP) + 15% of Gangplank’s missing Health.

  • Mana cost increased from 65 at all ranks to 60/70/80/90/100


New Item BoxPowder Keg Final IconPowder Keg [ New E ]

Cost: Free || Cooldown: 18/17/16/15/14 seconds for a charge, maximum of 2 charges

Places a powder keg that can be attacked by Gangplank or his enemies. If Gangplank destroys a keg, it explodes in an AoE blast that slows enemies by 40/50/60/70/80% for 2 seconds and deals 80/110/140/170/200 bonus physical damage to Champions. This damage ignores 60% of armor. Other casks within the zone will chain explode, but will not deal additional damage.

If an enemy destroys the cask, it defuses the explosion and grants gold. The health of kegs decays every 2 seconds, and that rate is increased at levels 7 and 13.

Ranks in Cannon Barrage [ R ] increase the maximum amount of Powder Keg charges to 3/4/5.


Change BoxCannon Barrage Final Icon

Cannon Barrage [ R ]

  • Magic damage changed from 75/120/165 [+0.2 AP] per second for a total of 7 seconds to 50/70/90 [+0.15 AP] per wave for a total of 12 waves over 8 seconds
  • Cooldown increased from 125/110/95 seconds to 140/130/120
  • Slow strength inside area increased from 25% to 30%

Additionally, Gangplank’s ultimate can now be upgraded at the store with Silver Serpents:

  • Death’s Daughter fires an initial mega-cannonball in the center of the area of effect, dealing 300% true damage and slowing targets by 60% for 1.5 seconds
  • Raise Morale gives allies within the area of effect 30% bonus Movement Speed.
  • Fire at Will increases the rate of fire over the duration of Cannon Barrage [additional 6 waves over the same duration]
