Vainglory Patch 1.14 Brings Monkey-Like Character Ozo and Lunar New Year Map
Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and Super Evil Megacorp is launching the Vainglory Lunar New Year patch, adding new hero Ozo, limited edition skin as well as new themed map with fireworks and other festival effects.
With the year of the monkey upon us, that was a big inspiration for new hero Ozo. He is a monkey-like character with a ringed blade. Designed with the mobility of a jungler in mind, Ozo’s weapon path offers him a damage focus while crystal will gear him more towards being a tank. You can check out his abilities below.
- Carnie Luck – Ozo’s heroic perk receives 10% – 30% extra healing, barrier and fortified health from all sources without affecting health regeneration.
- Three-Rings Circus – This ability is an interesting one. Ozo performs a 3-hit combo with his ring. Each combo is a separate tap within a 5-second window. First, Ozo’s ring is forced forward, causing damage to all enemy opponents in front. Second, Ozo engages with the target causing more damage. And finally, Ozo ends up spinning in order to bring immense damage to enemies nearby. From all the hits caused by Ozo, he gets healed, especially from hero’s damaged.
- Acrobounce – Considering the fact that he’s a monkey, Ozo jumps onto the head of a nearby target, slowing it by 60% and causing damage. While Ozo is airborne, you can quickly tap a nearby target to bounce off one creature’s head to the other in a sequence of three hops. If Ozo reaches the final hop, he deals increased damage. But with 2 hops, Ozo reduces crystal scaling against minions but gains increased move speed.
- Bangarang – Ozo’s final ability allows him to charge himself before attacking an enemy. If the enemy target is approached within 1 second, he causes immense damage while stunning the target for 0.5 seconds. Following that, he flips the enemy target over his ring to knock the opponent while causing damage to enemy opponents in range.
The patch 1.14 is scheduled for release on iOS and Android in early February.
