  • Passive - Heavy Glaive

  • Cernunnos wields a glaive as a weapon. His Basic Attacks deal additional damage to all enemies in melee range while he is throwing it.
  • Shifter of Seasons

  • Cernunnos imbues his glaive with the power of the 4 seasons. Activating this ability rotates him through 4 different bonuses to his Basic Attacks. - Spring Growth: Bonus Physical Lifesteal - Summer Heat: Bonus Damage - Autumn Decay: Debuff for 5s - Winter Chill: Slows for 1s
  • Bramble Blast

  • Cernunnos fires a thorn forward in a line that deals damage and roots a single enemy it hits. When it hits an enemy, a wall, or reaches max range it explodes dealing damage and spawning an area of thorns at the location. This area deals damage every .5s and slows enemies inside it persisting for 5s.
  • Horn Charge

  • Cernunnos charges forward, damaging and crashing through all types of enemies.
  • The Wild Hunt

  • Cernunnos selects an area where The Wild Hunt will begin. After a 1s casting time, enemies in the area will be damaged and polymorphed into wild boars. Polymorphed targets are Silenced and Disarmed. Polymorph is not affected by diminishing returns.

General

  • The damage dealt by Cernunnos over the course of a game was higher than his Hunter peers. Bramble Blast and Summer Heat are a large source of this damage. Bramble Blast is seeing a Cooldown increase, reducing how often this Ability can deal Damage or be used for control.
  • Summer Heat provided too much additional Damage as Cernunnos ramped up his item build. We have decreased the Physical Power scaling on Summer Heat to keep his late game more in check.

Shifter of Seasons Shifter of Seasons

  • Decreased Physical Power Scaling on Summer Heat from 20% -> 10%.

Bramble Blast Bramble Blast

  • Increased Cooldown from 13s -> 15s.

General

  • Cernunnos and his team have had a blast hunting down all his polymorphed opponents. The size of the ultimate allowed him to cover a wide area and allowed for little counterplay for his opponents. We are reducing the radius of The Wild Hunt to make it a bit less wild for his enemies.

The Wild Hunt The Wild Hunt

  • Reduced radius from 30 -> 25.

General

  • Cernunnos immediately sprung onto the Battleground and made an impact. Our goals with the following changes are to bring him more in line with other hunters, reduce frustrations when fighting against him, and keep Shifter of Seasons an impactful part of his kit.
  • The largest change is the removal of the Slow on Bramble Blast. Cernunnos was able to zone his enemies too effectively with this Ability, allowing him to remain safe and control the battle at the same time.
  • We are also reducing his Base Power to tone down his early game, while Spring Lifesteal is seeing a nerf to reduce his sustain during all stages of the game.
  • Reduced Base Power from 40 -> 37.

Shifter of Seasons Shifter of Seasons

  • Reduced Spring Growth's Physical Lifesteal from 8/11/14/17/20% -> 5/7.5/10/12.5/15%.

Bramble Blast Bramble Blast

  • This ability no longer Slows.
