Around a month ago, we reported that League of Legends developer Riot Games was “pretty close” to launching the upcoming rework of everyone’s favourite homicidal purple doctor, champion Dr. Mundo. Well, that time has now arrived. The studio has just unveiled the new and improved Madman of Zaun, so we’ve got a complete gameplay and visual overhaul to check out in detail.
With Mundo being one of the game’s very first 40 champs, his abilities have naturally been somewhat simpler and more pared back than those of many later additions (cough Apehlios cough). But, we can expect to see that change to an extent with the new Dr. Mundo, starting with his passive.
Now called Goes Where He Pleases, Dr. Mundo’s passive pivots away from just a simple health regen effect each second to one that’ll need him to act a little more tactically. The ability sees him resist “the next immobilisation effect that hits him, instead of losing current health and dropping a chemical canister nearby. Dr. Mundo can pick it up by walking over it, restoring a portion of maximum health and reducing this passive’s cooldown”. He’ll have to be wary, though, as “enemies moving over the canister destroy it”.
