The full Ability Rundown for Briar has been released by Riot Games, giving us a first look on what the new monstrous, hungering teen will be like in LoL. Briar is a jungle at heart, using her health as a cost for her abilities. However, she uses lifesteal and increased healing as her main characteristics while her kit reminds us a lot of Warwick in a better, more modern version. Take a look below to see the full ability kit for Briar in LoL.
Briar Abilities in LoL
Briar gains increased Healing based on her missing health and her attacks and abilities apply a bleed for short duration that stacks. The bleed deals physical damage based on the number of stacks and Heals Briar for a percentage of the pre-mitigation damage.
Briar has no base health regeneration and her abilities cost health to cast.
Briar leaps to a target, Stunning them for a short duration, dealing physical damage, and reducing their armor.
Briar will stop prioritizing champions if she casts this Ability on a minion or monster during Blood Frenzy.
Briar leaps to a location and enters a Blood Frenzy, self taunting to the nearest enemy (prioritizing champions) for a period of time. While in Blood Frenzy she gains Attack Speed and Move Speed and her attacks now deal physical damage around the main target.
Briar can Recast this ability to empower her next attack. It deals missing health physical damage and heals Briar for a large percentage of the damage dealt.
Begin Charging: Briar removes Blood Frenzy and gathers energy, gaining damage reduction and restoring health
Release: Briar unleashes a scream that deals damage based on time charged and Slows for a short duration. When fully charged the scream knocks back, dealing additional damage to enemies that hit a wall and Stunning them.
Briar kicks a hemolith and flies to the location of the first champion hit, marking them as her prey. On landing she deals a large amount of physical damage to everything nearby and causes nearby enemies to Flee. She then enters an empowered Blood Frenzy and will pursue her prey until one of them dies. During this time she gains Armor, Magic Resist, and additional Move Speed.
