His forms can be controlled with Skadi's Rune of the Hunt but he will be forced into Elemental form if he loses all Hit Points.

General

  • Skadi has proven to be one of the strongest hunters in the game. This can be attributed to her ability to deal large amounts of damage while also having the safety of Permafrost's CC and Movement Speed Buff. Skadi players will now need to invest more heavily into Permafrost to gain the same safety and her late game poke from laying down this icy field will be reduced.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Decreased Physical Power Scaling from 60% -> 50%.
  • Decreased Bonus Movement speed from 40% -> 20/25/30/35/40%.

General

  • Skadi surprised many players by quickly rising to the top of casual and competitive play, quickly shutting out other Hunters. After taking large amounts of competitive feedback, we are changing Winter's Grasp before the upcoming LAN. Kaldr will no longer be immune to damage while this Ability is active, giving enemy teams the ability to peel Kaldr if they choose to focus him down.

Winter's Grasp Winter's Grasp

  • Kaldr is no longer immune to Damage in this Ability, however, he will still fully heal on activation.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Fixed an issue where this was dealing incorrect damage.
  • Fixed a tooltip issue with Permafrost.

General

  • In Season 4 we made changes to reduce some of the frustration that Kaldr presents to Skadi's opponents while increasing her movement speed through Permafrost. After seeing how this has played out, we are giving Permafrost an additional effect. Permafrost's movement speed now persists for 3 seconds after leaving the circle helping Skadi keep distance between her and her opponents.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Skadi will now retain her Speed Buff for 3s after leaving Permafrost.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Fixed an issue where the movement speed from Permafrost was not fading from Skadi.

General

  • Skadi released to a large amount of success. As a low mobility Hunter, her ability to harass and create distance let her excel, but players eventually got familiar with her weak points. We like her ability to create space with strong uses of Kaldr, Permafrost, and Slows and we wanted to highlight this playstyle by giving her access to a bit more Movement Speed.
  • Increased Base Movement Speed from 370 -> 375.

Rune of the Hunt Rune of the Hunt

  • Decreased Kaldr's Basic Attack Damage from 50/70/70/90/90% -> 40/50/60/70/80% of Skadi's Basic Attack Damage.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Increased Movement Speed from 25% -> 40%.

Rune of the Hunt Rune of the Hunt

  • Fixed an issue where marking a target for Kaldr to chase caused Telaria Boots to generate gold.

General

  • Fixed an issue where Skadi could reactivate her ultimate while it was already active, causing her to not be able to basic attack.

General

  • Corrected an issue where Kaldr's health bar would scale properly with distance.
  • Fixed an issue with Kaldr's health bar in Spectator.

General

  • Skadi and Kaldr have been performing well, with a large portion of damage and power coming from Kaldr. While we like the dynamic, we wanted to tone down Kaldr's damage some to make him more manageable to play against.

Rune of the Hunt Rune of the Hunt

  • Decreased Kaldr's Basic Attack Damage from 60/60/80/80/100/100% to 50/50/70/70/90/90%.

General

  • Kaldr was a little eager to join the Battleground of the Gods and as such was dashing all over the place. We have increased his Dash cooldown to allow for more consistent counterplay through creating distance with Kaldr. Additionally Winter's Grasp is seeing a duration reduction, lowering the time Kaldr is immune to damage and also reducing how long the aura damage is applied! Both of these changes are focused around letting players have more room to deal with Kaldr more effectively. Down boy!

Kaldr, The Winter Wolf Kaldr, The Winter Wolf

  • Increased cooldown on dash from 2s to 5s.

Winter's Grasp Winter's Grasp

  • Duration reduced from 5s to 4s.

  • Adjusted SFX on Skadi's Basic Attack.
  • Updated some small tooltip errors or omissions.

Permafrost Permafrost

  • Fixed Skadi being unable to use her Permafrost when Crippled.

Winter's Grasp Winter's Grasp

  • Fixed Kaldr not receiving benefits from Skadi's Ultimate if knocked up when it happens.
