4.7

Leo’s still proving to be a menace. We’re reverting his base stats back to bruiser territory while also lowering the damage on his Lion’s Might – Jet Cyclone so now he has to choose between high crowd control or damage.

STATS

  • Armor Base and Scaling
    • 35 -100 → 30 – 85
  • Shield Base and Scaling
    • 25 – 75 → 20 – 60 

LION’S MIGHT – JET CYCLONE (C)

  • Weapon Power Damage Ratio
    • 350% → 150%

LION’S MIGHT – CRUSHING STRIKE (C)

  • Damage Amplification
    • 15% / 15% / 15% → 10% / 15% / 20%

4.6

Leo is still proving to be too strong so we went ahead and lowered the damage on Crushing Strike even further.

CRUSHING STRIKE (A)

  • Weapon Power Damage Ratio
    • 300% → 280%
  • Base Damage
    • 90 / 180 / 270 / 360 / 540 → 80 / 160 / 240 / 320 / 480

4.5

Leo’s buffs from the last patch, though well intended,  were causing him to do a liiiiiitttle too much damage when combined with the empowerment from Lion’s Might. These changes should make him much more reasonable, leveling out his burst, especially when it comes to the late game.

CRUSHING STRIKE (A)

  • Weapon Ratio
    • 320% → 300%

LION’S MIGHT (C)

  • Empowerment Bonus
    • 10% / 25% / 40% → 15% at all levels
  • Lion’s Might: Crushing Strike Bleed Weapon Ratio
    • 100% → 50%
  • Lion’s Might: Crushing Strike Bleed Duration
    • 4s → 3s

4.4

Some players seem to have been struggling with Leo during his debut due to his his low defensive stats and telegraphed abilities. These changes are targeted towards making him last a little longer in fights while also making his abilities feel more rewarding to hit.

STATS

  • Base Health
    • 702 → 830
  • Health Per Level
    • 148 → 160

LEO THE BLADEBREAKER

Let’s give a real hero’s welcome to our newest addition to the Vainglory roster. Meet Leo, the Bladebreaker, a brawny bodyguard with a jet powered sword. Leo is a veritable powerhouse in Lane or Jungle, gathering up enemies and crushing them. Make sure to keep up your Turbo Blade stacks for a huge movespeed boost. Read on to learn more about this big bad bruiser and his monstrous blade!

HERO ABILITIES

TURBO BLADE (PERK)

Whenever Leo uses an ability, the turbo engine on his blade engages, granting him bonus movespeed (up to 3 stacks). Leo’s basic attacks are slow but deal damage to all targets in front of him.

CRUSHING STRIKE (A)

Leo charges his blade before striking down in front of him dealing heavy damage to enemies in the area.

JET CYCLONE (B)

Leo briefly charges his blade before dashing to his target location, damaging and slowing enemies around him.

Overdrive: Slow duration increases at max rank.

LION’S MIGHT (Ultimate)

Leo briefly charges his blade then jumps in the target direction, damaging enemies in the area and empowering himself with Lion’s Might, granting additional effects on his other abilities. If there are enemy heroes near Leo,  he will use Lion’s Fury instead, shoving all enemy heroes in a target direction and stunning them before leaping to them and unleashing two great strikes on them.

  • Lion’s Might – Crushing Strike (A) – Deals bonus damage and causes enemies to bleed for 4s.
  • Lion’s Might – Jet Cyclone (B) – Deals bonus damage and roots enemies instead of slowing them.
