Ability Kit

Passive - The Relentless Storm

Volibear gains 3% attack speed whenever he deals damage, which stacks up to 5 times.

Lightning Claws: At 5 stacks, Volibear's claws ignite with lightning, causing his basic attack to deal 11-60 (+40% AP) bonus magic damage to the 5 closest enemies. Volibear must deal damage within 6 seconds to maintain this effect.

Q - Thundering Smash

14/13/12/11/10s Cooldown
50 Mana

Volibear gains 10/15/20/25/30% movement speed for 4 seconds (or 20/30/40/50/60% towards enemy champions) and the ability to move through units. While active, Volibear's next basic attack deals 25/50/75/100/125 (+120% bAD) bonus damage and stuns the target for 1 second

Volibear becomes enraged if an enemy immobilizes him before he stuns a target, resetting this ability and its cooldown.

W - Frenzied Maul

5s Cooldown
30/35/40/45/50 Mana

Volibear mauls an enemy, dealing 10/35/60/85/110 (+100% tAD) (+6% bonus health) physical damage, applying on-hit effects, and wounding the target for 8 seconds.

If Frenzied Maul is used on a wounded target, its damage is increased by 50% and Volibear restores 20/35/50/65/80 health + 8/10/12/14/16% of his missing health (50% effective against minions).

E - Sky Splitter

15s Cooldown
60 Mana

After a delay, Volibear summons a lightning bolt at a target location. This deals 60/90/120/150/180 (+80% AP) (+7/8.5/10/11.5/13% of the target's maximum health) magic damage and slows enemies by 40% for 2 seconds. Damage against non-champions is capped at 100/200/300/400/500.

If Volibear is inside the blast zone, he gains a shield equal to 15% of his maximum health (+80% AP) for 3 seconds.

R - Stormbringer

160/140/120s Cooldown
100 Mana

Volibear transforms and leaps toward a target location, gaining 200/400/600 health, 50 attack range, and the ability to move through units for the next 12 seconds.

Upon landing, nearby enemy towers are disabled for 2/4/6 seconds and suffer 250/475/700 (+250% bAD) (+150% AP) physical damage. Nearby enemies are slowed by 50%, decaying over 1 second. Enemies directly underneath Volibear suffer 250/475/700 (+250% bAD) (+150% AP) physical damage.

Volibear's splashart unveiled, more revealed in upcoming stream

Following Fiddlesticks', the reworked version of Volibear will soon be revealed to the League of Legends community as Riot is apparently planning a stream to unveil more about the new Thunder's Roar.
