Trial by Fire 2.png

If Gangplank successfully hits a target with Trial by Fire, he gains Movement speed icon.png 30% bonus movement speed for 2 seconds. Every time a Powder Keg Powder Keg explodes, the Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown for Trial by Fire resets and Gangplank gains its Movement speed icon.png bonus movement speed.

Trial by Fire cannot be applied with Parrrley Parrrley nor Powder Keg Powder Keg.

Info
  • Unlike most damage over time debuffs, reapplying Trial by Fire before a previous application has run out will stack the full damage, instead of just refreshing the duration.
  • 𝐏𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓 : Interaction with parries (Counter Strike.png dodge, Spirit's Refuge.png block, and Blind icon.png blind).
    • If the attack is Counter Strike.png dodged, the effect is not applied nor does Trial by Fire go on cooldown.

Powder Keg.png

Passive: Gangplank periodically stocks a Powder Keg, up to a maximum of 3.

Active: Gangplank places a Powder Keg at the target location for 25 seconds, which connects to other nearby Powder Kegs with overlapping connection radius.

Gangplank and his enemies can attack the Powder Keg with basic attacks, dealing 1 damage per hit. Gangplank may also shoot the barrel with Parrrley Parrrley. If Gangplank scores the killing blow, it explodes, also triggering a chain reaction that explodes nearby connected kegs with a 0.3-delay between explosions. If killed by an enemy, the keg is safely dismantled.

An exploding keg grants Sight icon.png sight of its explosion radius for 2 seconds and deals the attack's damage to all enemies within the area, plus bonus physical damage against Champion icon.png champions, ignoring 40% of each enemy's Armor penetration icon.png armor, as well as Slow icon.png slowing and Sight icon.png revealing them for 2 seconds. Enemies can only be damaged once per chain.

Bonus Physical Damage:
80 / 105 / 130 / 155 / 180
Slow:
40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80%

Attacking a keg with Spellblade will consume the effect. If Gangplank applies it, the keg will store the damage it would have dealt and add it to the explosion damage as bonus physical damage if it is the initial detonation of a chain. Barrel deterioration speed increases at levels 7 and 13.

Info
  • Placed barrels do not grant Sight icon.png vision until they explode, but they are revealed to Gangplank.
    • If Gangplank loses allied vision, for instance due to Nearsight icon.png nearsight, he will also lose vision on his barrels temporarily.
    • Barrels prematurely grant Sight icon.png sight of their explosion radius (including across terrain and into bushes) if Parrrley Parrrley or a lit fuse is travelling towards them.
      • This area reveal happens even if Parrrley Parrrley is not going to make it explode.
  • An exploding Powder Keg will splash Parrrley's Parrrley's bonus damage, and will also be modified if the attack Critical strike icon.png critically strikes.
  • Attacks against Powder Kegs will apply on-hit effects (such as Tiamat's Tiamat's Cleave), but Wit's End item.png proc damage against the barrel itself is reduced to 0.
    • Damage from on-hit effects will not increase the damage of the explosion.
    • Sheen item.png Spellblade is a special-cased exception.
  • Notes regarding the Sheen item.png Spellblade interaction:
    • The attack with Spellblade can be but does not have to be the one to trigger the explosion.
    • The stored damage is static and will not change if Gangplank gains base attack damage by leveling up or exchanges his Spellblade item.
      • If a keg that is storing Spellblade damage is attacked with a new instance of Spellblade, it will override the previously stored damage (if different).
    • The magic damage of Lich Bane Lich Bane is fully applied, but effectively converted to physical damage.
  • Dead Man's Plate's Dead Man's Plate's Crushing Blow will not trigger from Powder Kegs destroyed from Gangplank, even with Parrrley Parrrley.

Fire in the Hole

Gangplank can attack a Powder Keg with basic attacks and Parrrley Parrrley. If he destroys it, the keg no longer grants kill gold but instead explodes, inflicting the triggering strike upon all nearby enemies, ignoring 40% of their armor, Slow icon.png slowing them by 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80% for 2 seconds, dealing 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 / 180 bonus physical damage to enemy champions and applying spell effects as Death Lotus.png area damage. Magic damage effects are not applied. If Gangplank destroys a Powder Keg with Parrrley Parrrley then every enemy killed by the Powder Keg will also be plundered and grants him Silver Serpents Silver Serpents as if he had killed them with the initial ability.

Powder Trail

Powder Kegs connect to each other when nearby, and explode when a Powder Keg they are connected to is detonated, though they do not affect enemies hit by one of the previous explosions.
