The Sona and Soraka nerfs are pretty surprising, but they make sense. I’m really happy about the Vladimir cool down change considering I was laning against a Vlad the other day and was completely astounded how quickly he was casting at low levels. Shen buffs are terrifying. Just, terrifying.
If you’ve ever wondered what preternatural bests lurk near the ocean floor, look no further than Nautilus, the Titan of the Depths! This imposing new champion is a fun, satisfying tank with a new initiation mechanic and a ton of soft crowd control mechanics to wreak havoc on the enemy team. And to top it all off, he’s utterly massive and punishes his opponents with heavy swings from a gigantic anchor.
Nautilus’ core ability is Dredge Line. Although he’s relatively slow and lumbering, Nautilus has the ability to drag himself and an enemy closer together. This makes him an ideal champion to have up front when you’re at a standoff with the enemy team. By dragging himself in to lead the attack and pulling an enemy out of position, you can create just the opening your allies need to start the team fight off on the right foot. You can also use Dredge Line on terrain to either get around more quickly or escape in a pinch.
