  • Nature's Protection - Passive

  • Enemies that successfully land a basic attack on Sylvanus have a 25% chance to be rooted for 1s. This may only happen once every 12s.
  • Verdant Growth

  • Sylvanus throws a seed to a target location. If it hits an enemy they will take 80/100/120/140/160 + 35% of your magical power as damage and become rooted for 2s. If the seed lands on the ground, after 10s it will grow into a flower providing 6/10/14/18/20 MP5 to nearby allies. The pod can be destroyed by basic attacks, exploding and releasing poisonous spores that reduce protections of nearby enemies by 5/10/15/20/25 for 5s. Cooldown 12s. Cost 60/65/70/75/80.
  • Wisps

  • Sylvanus releases wisps that seek out nearby allies and enemies. Allies are healed 25/35/45/55/65 +15% of your magical power every 1s for 5s and have their protections increased by 5/10/15/20/25 for 5s while enemies take 10,15,20,25,30 +10% of your magical power every 1s for 5s as damage over time. Cooldown 18/17/16/15/14s. Cost 60/65/70/75/80.
  • Nature's Grasp

  • Wrath of Terra

  • Sylvanus's treant slams his large trunks into the ground causing large thorny roots to break out of the ground around him. Enemies hit are knocked up and take 60/70/80/90/100 +25% of your magical power every 1s for 5s as damage. Cooldown 90s. Cost 100.

General

  • Sylvanus has rooted himself in this meta, providing strong early game pressure in the duo lane. Part of this strength comes from Verdant Growth allowing Sylvanus to clear and engage his enemies often. We are increasing the Cooldown at Rank 1 of this Ability, lowering Sylvanus' power during the first few levels.

Verdant Growth Verdant Growth

  • Increased Cooldown from 12s -> 16/15/14/13/12s.

General

  • The recent buffs to Sylvanus and the way Season 4 has begun to shake out have led to Sylvanus being highly valued. The amount of lane pressure he is providing in the early game is a bit too high given his other utility. We are toning down the early game power of his basic attacks as we continue to evaluate the strength of wave clear in Season 4.
  • Decreased Base Magical Power from 38 -> 35.

General

  • Sylvanus and Grover made quite a splash at HRX. We are looking to shift him similarly to other healers in Season 4. Wisps is seeing a slight decrease, while Verdant Growth will now apply its Protection Reduction on Rooted enemies, giving Sylvanus better kill potentially when he can successful land his combo.

Verdant Growth Verdant Growth

  • Now Applies Protection Reductions of 5/10/15/20/25 for 5s on hit of enemy gods.

Wisps Wisps

  • Decreased Base Healing from 25/30/35/40/45 -> 15/20/25/30/35 per tick.
  • Decreased Magical Power Scaling on Healing from 15% -> 10% per tick.

Nature's Protection Nature's Protection

  • Fixed an issue where this passive was recharging at the incorrect rate.

General

  • Sylvanus is a powerful pick when it comes to team utility, but without the ability to apply constant pressure, he has been overshadowed by other Guardian pics. We are looking to increase some of his utility and potency with these changes.

Verdant Growth Verdant Growth

  • Increased damage from 80/100/120/140/160 -> 80/120/160/200/240.

  • MP5 increased from 6/10/14/18/20 to 20 at all ranks.

General

  • Nature's Grasp is seeing an adjustment to make it more useable at lower ranks while also encouraging its use in the late game with a Mana cost reduction. His ability to pull people is one of his core and most satisfying mechanics and we are looking forward to players feeling better about using this skill more often.
