Gangplank gets a new spotlight after League of Legends rework

Meet the new pirate

Gangplank’s rework is complete, and he’ll be entering into League of Legends arena as a new man. Now instead of Grog Soaked Blade he has Trial by Fire, which periodically powers up his auto-attacks. Now, Parrrley can grant him silver, which he can use as a special currency to upgrade his ultimate at the shop. Raise Morale has been replaced by Powder Keg (morale is now a potential ultimate bonus), an area-of-effect explosion.

Overall, he’s a lot more active now in terms of his playstyle. I really like this rework and I think I’ll queue up a few games as Gangplank later.
