The first Vainglory post, and it couldn’t have come at a better time as we countdown towards the beginning of season 2! Admittingly I’ve been too preoccupied with Clash Royale to really give Vainglory the time it deserves, but I promise we will ramp up the Vainglory content soon!
As we speak the servers are down and everyone is eager to jump right back into the game with new character Reim:
A recap of his abilities below:
Heroic Perk: Frostguard
Reim’s basic attacks deal 20-54 (+125% crystal power) bonus crystal damage over 2 seconds and grant 50% of the damage dealt with this effect as fortified health (reduced against non-heroes). Reim’s attacks and abilities also chill opponents. Basic attacks against targets that are already chilled apply a 60% slow that decays over 0.6 seconds. (Fortified health absorbs 50% of incoming damage until it is depleted.)
Reim summons a spire of ice at a nearby location, dealing crystal damage to surrounding enemies. After a short delay, the spire shatters, dealing heavy crystal damage. 35% of the damage dealt with this ability is gained as fortified health. Damage dealt and fortified health gained is reduced against non-heroes. This ability deals 25% increased damage to chilled targets.
Reim deals a burst of crystal damage to all surrounding enemies (25% damage to minions). This ability roots enemies who are chilled, temporarily preventing them from moving. A rooted enemy can still attack.
Reim summons an ancient valkyrie, devastating enemies at the target location. All enemies are slowed, while enemies closer to the center are stunned and take increased damage.
