Kraken Tsunami Charge.jpg
Cast Time: 0.1 / 0 seconds
Target Position Visible Enemy Heroes
Type - Magic
Kraken charges with great strength and speed, dragging the first enemy he encounters to sure doom. If Kraken collides with a tree, cliff, or structure, he will stop. If he is dragging someone at that time, they will get stunned.
Range: 800
Mana Cost: 110
Cooldown: 14/13/12/11 seconds
Charges 800 units in the targeted direction at 850 speed. Deals 60/90/120/150 Magic Damage in a 200 radius while charging. Tsunami Charge stops if you collide with a tree, cliff, or building.

While charging, you will pick up any enemy hero you collide with, dragging it in front of you. If you collide to terrain while dragging an enemy hero, that hero takes an additional 50/100/150/200 Magic Damage and is Stunned for 1/1.33/1.66/2 seconds.

Grants 500 day and night Clearvision around where you stopped charging for 5 seconds.

Not even the Great Wall of Japan can stop this one!
 
Notes
  • Kraken charges at 850 speed.
  • Tsunami Charge checks for impassable terrain 25 units directly in front of Kraken.
  • Tsunami Charge deals damage in a 200 radius around Kraken.
  • Grabs any non-Magic Immune enemy hero that gets within 80 radius of Kraken while charging.
  • Enemy heroes are grabbed regardless of the angle of their approach.
  • Destroys trees in a 80 radius around Kraken once he stops charging.
  • Once Kraken stops charging, grants Clearvision around where Kraken stopped, whether from colliding with terrain or reaching the maximum charge distance.


Splash
[ E ]
Kraken Splash.jpg
Passive
Kraken releases a devastating slam that splits the seven seas, passively dealing additional splash damage on occasion.
Cooldown: 10/9/8/7 seconds
On Attack Impact
Deals 60/120/180/240 bonus Physical Damage to targets in a 325 radius.

Attacking will reduce cooldown by 1 second.

...but nothing happened!
 
Notes
  • Splash radius is centered around the target unit.
  • Damage dealt to the primary target is dealt as bonus Attack Damage, so it is affected by attack modifiers such as Critical Strike, Lifesteal, and Harkon's Blade.


Release the Kraken!
[ R ]
Kraken Release the Kraken.jpg
Cast Time: 0 / 0 seconds
Target Position Non-Boss Organic Enemies

Every seafarer's nightmare is manifest as this hulk of watery flesh! Summons a Whirlpool that damages and pulls in enemies. If they reach the center, they are damaged and stunned by its lashing tentacles.
Range: 600
Radius: 300
Mana Cost: 150
Cooldown: 100/90/80 seconds
After a 1 second delay, a 300 radius whirlpool spawns at target position that lasts 3/4/5 seconds. The whirlpool deals 50/60/70 Magic Damage per second, applies a 50% Movement Speed Slow, and pulls enemies towards the center at a rate of 100/125/150 units per second.

Enemies who reach the center take 200/300/400 Magic Damage and are Immobilized for 2/2.5/3 seconds.

Grants 800 day and night Clearvision around the whirlpool.

You know what I'm thinking about.
 
Notes
  • Enemy units within the whirlpool also have Unitwalking while also being pushed.
