LEO THE BLADEBREAKER
Let’s give a real hero’s welcome to our newest addition to the Vainglory roster. Meet Leo, the Bladebreaker, a brawny bodyguard with a jet powered sword. Leo is a veritable powerhouse in Lane or Jungle, gathering up enemies and crushing them. Make sure to keep up your Turbo Blade stacks for a huge movespeed boost. Read on to learn more about this big bad bruiser and his monstrous blade!
TURBO BLADE (PERK)
Whenever Leo uses an ability, the turbo engine on his blade engages, granting him bonus movespeed (up to 3 stacks). Leo’s basic attacks are slow but deal damage to all targets in front of him.
CRUSHING STRIKE (A)
Leo charges his blade before striking down in front of him dealing heavy damage to enemies in the area.
JET CYCLONE (B)
Leo briefly charges his blade before dashing to his target location, damaging and slowing enemies around him.
Overdrive: Slow duration increases at max rank.
LION’S MIGHT (Ultimate)
Leo briefly charges his blade then jumps in the target direction, damaging enemies in the area and empowering himself with Lion’s Might, granting additional effects on his other abilities. If there are enemy heroes near Leo, he will use Lion’s Fury instead, shoving all enemy heroes in a target direction and stunning them before leaping to them and unleashing two great strikes on them.
- Lion’s Might – Crushing Strike (A) – Deals bonus damage and causes enemies to bleed for 4s.
- Lion’s Might – Jet Cyclone (B) – Deals bonus damage and roots enemies instead of slowing them.
SONIC TURBINE (Rare)
Turbo Blade (Perk) grants additional movespeed as well as weapon power & crystal power.
MOCKING SLASH (Epic)
Jet Cyclone (B) taunts enemies hit and passively grants additional defense.
LION’S ROAR (Legendary)
Lion’s Might (C) empowerment is extended and is no longer removed when using other abilities.

- Taka now exits stealth when activating Charm.
- Fixed a bug with the calculation of the bonus attack range granted by Baron’s Ult. Previously, the listed attack range at levels 0 / 1 / 2 / 3 of his Ult was 5.9 / 6.3 / 6.7 / 7.1, but his actual range was 5.9 / 5.9 / 6.7 / 8.3. His listed and actual attack range is now 5.7 / 6.3 / 6.9 / 7.5.
- Fixed a bug on Caine’s Triple Tap (A) that caused it to have a shorter range than intended.
