  • Udyr Rework Is Pandering to Chinese Players, Fans Claim

Let’s now hope that Udy’s rework does not make her go unnoticed, even though it was a novelty.

What Will Be Udyr’s Rework Lore?

Udyr, a League of Legends character, is quite unique. He is part a mysterious, but still unknown, group of people that cIt is possible to communicate with both the spirits of the lands and animals and channel their powers.

Udyr is however a completely different animal. His explorations into the spirit realm have allowed him to channel the The ancients Freljordian demigods are one example. Volibear, for instance, causes him to go into a violent rage due to his sheer power.

Udyr spent time with Lee Sin to learn his ascetic methods and to control his impulses. He also trained with Lee Sin and fought Noxus during their invasion of Ionia.

Now, he roams Freljord looking for answers.


How will the reworked udyr appear?

Originally, some fans thought Udyr would look similar to his Legends of Runeterra version, but Riot has revealed that the cards in LoR represent Udyr at a younger time in his life. So, what do we get in League of Legends? It’s a burly strong man, that’s what.

Riot originally tried to give him antlers but it looked awkward and clunky. They decided to remove his antlers and make him a Freljord mountain Shaman. And you know what? It kind of fits.

These are also his final abilities. Channeling Ornn allows Udyr to ignore CC, and charge in the same manner as Ornn’s own ultimate does, while channeling Ildhaurg is not as flashy, but seems to give Udyr a shield at the very least.  

When will the Udyr’s Rework be released? 

Riot has confirmed that Udyr will be released in League of Legends Patch 11.16. Now, all we have to do is get through. Patch 12.15 And the Monster Tamer skins We can then finally get our hands onto the new Udyr. 

Although we wish Riot would Bring back his hairy chest This is what we saw in the original concept artwork. A burly mountain man would look great with it, as it was.
