Passive – Dimensional Rift

  • Nolan’s skills can cut through dimensions, creating rifts that slow enemies. When two rifts touch, they pull in enemies and explode, dealing physical damage.
  • Each rift explosion hitting an enemy hero or Creep grants Nolan Energy. If Nolan goes without damage from non-Minion or non-Creep units, his next Basic Attack dashes to the target, dealing Physical Damage and creating a rift.

Skill 1 – Expansion

  • Nolan cuts a rectangular area in front of him, dealing physical damage and leaving a rift at the first enemy hit.

Skill 2 – Gauge

  • Nolan charges in the target direction and performs a slash, dealing physical damage to enemies in his path and leaving a rift.

Ultimate – Fracture

  • Nolan removes all debuffs on himself and slashes the target location 3 times, dealing physical damage with each slash while leaving 3 rifts. The rifts will explode automatically while Nolan dashes backward.

The hero will be released on September 30.
