Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? Well, League of Legends players should be, because it’s here. Warwick, the primal champion in the game has gotten some brand new moves via a new update. But, who is the beast known as Warwick? Let’s find out.
Warwick is a monster. But he wasn’t always that way. He was transformed by experiments, and his body was fused with a system of chambers and pumps. In fact, machines fill his veins with manufactured rage. So like Hulk, but hairier. Like a true beast, but one with a sense of honor, he preys upon those who terrorize the city of Zaun’s depths. This is one creature you don’t want to mess with.
It’d be easy to think of Warwick as no more than a beast, a primal animal and nothing more. But, buried beneath the fury lies the mind of a man. In fact, he was a former gangster, one who tried to get away from the life that brought him such pain. But in an ironic twist, he couldn’t escape, and now as Warwick, few can escape him.
Warwick has many abilities that make him a powerful threat, including Eternal Thirst, Jaws of the Beast, Blood Hunt, Primal Howl, an Infinite Duress. We covered some of the details of the new Warwick before, but if you’re bored by details, you can check out his teaser trailer.
