Info[edit | edit source]

Borne of bestial nobility and blessed with the gift of immortality from the fruit of the Sefir Tree, the Monkey King once wrought a burning trail of havoc that stretched from the mortal plane to the heavens before he was imprisoned for his actions. In an act of repentance, he earned his freedom by accepting the tutelage of Ophelia, who seared onto his forehead a golden seal to control his primal urges. Bound to his new mistress, the Monkey King begins his great journey with renewed strength and zeal.

You may cast Heavenly Vault a second time within 2.5 seconds, with its cast range increased to 300.

The first application of Vaulted deals 100/150/200/250 Physical Damage and applies a tapering 20/40/60/80% Movement Speed Slow for 2 seconds.

" to ascend a great distance in a single bound..."

  • Can leap over ally units, but it will not damage or slow them and won't push them back.

  • Each application of Vaulted deals a minimum of 25% damage (25/37.5/50/62.5 Physical Damage).
  • Can deal 175/263/350/438 Physical Damage if Vaulted is applied 3 times.
