Legend of the Poro King

Legend of the Poro King mode

This year’s Snowdown brings with it our next featured game mode… and a legend. The “Legend of the Poro King”. We’ve dramatically changed what fights on the Howling Abyss will look like, so let’s get straight into the rules: Played on the Howling Abyss, Legend of the Poro King is a 5v5 Blind Draft game mode, where your goal is still to destroy the enemy team’s nexus. However, you’ll have some Poro companions with you (to throw at each other of course), be diving deep to make #bigplays and work together to summon some help from the legendary Poro King himself.

Gameplay

Summoner spells

When playing the Legend of the Poro King, your regular summoner spells are replaced with two new ones (Unsealed Spellbook rune Unsealed Spellbook does not allow access to regular summoner spells), made just for the mode:

Poro Toss/Poro Dash

"Cast Poro Toss once and sling your smaller poro across the Abyss. The range is way, way longer than you expect. And don’t worry, the poros love a good toss. After landing a hit, trigger Poro Toss again to Poro Dash, flying to your poro’s target. It’s like Lee Sin’s Q, but more endearing. Finally, when your team lands ten Poro Tosses, you summon the Poro King."[1]
Poro Toss / Poro Dash
RANGE: 2500
COOLDOWN: 20
Poro Toss

Active - Poro Toss: Throws a PoroSquare Poro a long distance, dealing 30 − 200 (based on level) true damage to the first enemy unit hit. Poro Toss can be recast for the next 3 seconds after it hits an enemy to cast Poro Dash.

INCOMING PORO! profileicon

Active - Poro Dash: Your champion surges into the target struck by Poro Toss. Dashing to the target will reduce Poro Toss' cooldown by 5 seconds.

"Poros are a model of Runeterran aerodynamics."

Additional Information:


To The King!

"When the Poro King is on the scene and your team, activate To the King! to poro-fy yourself and rocket to your liege. It’s like Lee Sin’s Safeguard, but more endearing."[1]
To the King!
RANGE: Global
COOLDOWN: 10
To the King!

Passive: Hitting an enemy champion with a PoroSquare Poro gives your team a To the King! Poro Mark. Upon reaching 10 To the King! Poro Marks, your team summons the Poro KingSquare Poro King to fight alongside them. While the Poro KingSquare Poro King is active, no To the King! Poro Marks can be scored by either team.

Active: Quickly dash to the Poro KingSquare Poro King's side. Can only be cast when the Poro KingSquare Poro King is summoned for your team.

"Poros tug the heartstrings. The rest of you just comes along for the ride."

Additional Information:

Riot Games does not make responsible for the constant commitment of magnicide against his royal highness, but it's responsible of PoroSquare Poros injured in the process by the wretched and soulless teams.


Poro King

The Poro King is benevolent and will aid whichever team has summoned him. He can be dispelled, but only to return again when enough favour has been curried with him. As a tanky siege minion, he brings an impressive power boost to whichever team he’s aiding.

Players can also feed him with Snax to trigger his special abilities.

New Items

  • Frosted Snax item Frosted Snax - Shoots a barrage of ice missiles. So cold!
  • Super Spicy Snax item Super Spicy Snax - This is too hot for Poros, and causes the King to spew fire! Fire is hot... don't touch that!
  • Espresso Snax item Espresso Snax - So... much... caffeine! O_O The King bounces around, knocking back enemies and gains a shield.
  • Rainbow Snax Party Pack! item Rainbow Snax Party Pack! - Snacks for all Poros! Whee! The Poros get so excited for the Snax that they stampede out, knocking around any champions in their path...


Trivia

  • While playing this mode, each champion is followed by two poros. These poros change appearnace when using one of the new poro summoner icons.[1] For the list of icons, go to Media/Icons tab.
  • The summoner spell Poro Toss/Poro Dash is later implemented on the ARAM mode. The ARAM version spells are called Mark Mark and Dash Dash.
