All of Ymir's powers that affect enemies apply a debuff to the enemy called Frostbite. All of Ymir's normal melee strikes against a target afflicted by Frostbite do 50% more damage.

Shards of Ice

After a 3 second slowing channel, Ymir erupts out of his frozen state, causing shards of ice to do 600/750/900/1050/1200 (+200% of your magical power) magical damage to all enemies in his range.

Feedback to Ymir's wall change was quite positive, but it didn't really do much for his metrics. Ymir is still really struggling in the current meta, so we wanted to look at some more specific buffs instead of just quality of… YMIR IS HERE. Ymir, please, i'm trying to work. QUIET YOU DESIGNER JUST BUFF YMIR. i'm already doing that, ok? Just calm down. NO YOU CALM DOWN. sigh… enjoy mid season everyone. BYE BYE PLAY MORE YMIR.
YMIR IS HERE. Ymir need buff, not do so well lately. Ice wall can help team but also hurt team, so I DESTROY now. Ymir ult not fair sometimes, I try hard deal damage but still die, so now I deal damage EVERY TIME! Thanks for play Ymir. Bye Bye. Olympians pathnotes.png
Ymir can now re-fire this ability to destroy the wall early, he can re-fire this while under the effects of CC or while dead.
This ability now goes on cooldown only after the wall dies.
Decreased cooldown from 14s to 12/11/10/9/8s.
Shards of Ice
If Ymir dies while channeling this he will still deal damage for his current amount charged.
Ymir is the last, but certainly not the least, Guardian on this list. The Frost Giant is struggling to bring the level of control needed to compete with other guardians. Frost Breath has a significant cooldown, limiting his access to reliable control. We are lowering the cooldown, allowing him to freeze the opposition and shatter through the front lines.
Hi! Ymir excels as a character that can bully players with his club and strong base damage abilities but he often struggled to maintain a powerful frontline presence in the mid and late game. Frostbite now decreases the damage dealt by those afflicted (in addition to what it already does) which should not only allow Ymir to survive in the front line more reliably, but give him a nice tool to help his team as the game progresses.
Enemies afflicted by Frost Bite now deal 10% less damage to all targets.
