  • Web

  • Arachne spins a wall of web. Enemies who pass through and break the web are slowed 25% for 4/4.5/5/5.5/6s, revealed to Arachne for the duration, and leave a trail of web behind them that increases Arachne's movement speed and makes her immune to Slows. Breaking the web also spawns 2 Broodling Spiders, which deal 20/30/40/50/60 damage per hit. Arachne can have 2 walls active at a time, and they expire when broken or after 4min. Cooldown: 18s. Cost: 50/55/60/65/70.

General

  • While this change to Arachne's Web has balance implications, it's primarily being driven around improving the feel for both Arachne and for players on the receiving end of the ability. Web provided little to no feedback for enemy players, as it is just dropped on top of them instantly hitting. It was hard to understand what happened and why it happened. This new version will allow enemies to better read Arachne's actions, as well as provided more visceral feedback to Arachne players. This also adds a skill

Web Web

  • Now fires as a projectile of Web and Spiders!
  • Arachne shoots a line of Web forward. She is Immune to Slows and moves faster on Web. If the Web reaches max range a Web trap will spawn. Enemy gods who walk through the trap or get hit by the projectile are Slowed by 25%, revealed to Arachne, leave a trail of Web behind them, and are attacked by Broodlings. Arachne can only have two Web traps active at a time and the Webs last 240s.
