General

  • One of Poseidon's strengths is his ability to move quickly around the map, affecting team fights or rotations heavily and a 5% increase in Tide's Movement Speed will further highlight this strength. Additionally, we made an adjustment to Trident which will allow players to begin firing Basic Attacks immediately after activation without needing to wait for the animation to finish, allowing him to be more reactive when using this ability.

Trident Trident

  • Reduced the pre-fire on this ability so players can immediately fire a basic attack without waiting for Trident's animation to finish.

  • Poseidon is a character that often wants to maintain high levels of his Tide to be mobile and effective around the map. By reducing both the Tidal Meter and Mana cost of Tidal Surge and Whirlpool, Poseidon players will find themselves often in a slightly better position at key points in the game.
