We learned about Udyr’s revamped abilities. Riot has already officially disclosed them.
Riot released official information about Udyr’s rework. The developers added a description and presentation of the skills directly in the game. Below is just the official information:
“THE CIRCLE CONTINUES. UNBROKEN. UNWAVERING.”
Passive – Bridge Between
Awakened Spirit: Udyr has four basic abilities that swap between stances. He can periodically recast his active stance to Awaken it for bonus effects, with a shared cooldown between stances.
Monk Training: Each time Udyr enters or Awakens a stance, his next two attacks gain attack speed and refund some of Awaken’s cooldown.
Q – Wilding Claw
Udyr gains a burst of attack speed and his next two attacks deal bonus physical damage.
Awaken: Udyr gains even more attack speed, and his next two attacks chain lightning off the target, bouncing up to 6 times. Lightning can strike the same target multiple times, dealing heavy damage to isolated targets.
W – Iron Mantle
Udyr gains a shield and his next two attacks restore health.
Awaken: Udyr gains a bigger shield, his next two attacks heal even more, and he restores a percentage of his max health over the next few seconds.
E – Blazing Stampede
Udyr gains a burst of move speed. His first attack against each target while in this stance lunges a short distance and stuns them (per-unit cooldown).
Awaken: Udyr gains even more move speed and briefly becomes immune to crowd control.
R – Wingborne Storm
Udyr temporarily summons a storm around him that slows and damages nearby units. His next two attacks cause the storm to pulse, dealing bonus magic damage.
Awaken: Udyr unleashes the storm, causing it to deal additional damage and chase after nearby enemies.
