When Draven catches a Spinning Axe, kills a minion or monster or destroys a turret, he gains a stack of Adoration. In addition, Draven generates 2 bonus Adoration stacks if he kills 6 minions in a row without dropping an axe. When Draven kills an enemy champion, he consumes all of his Adoration stacks and gains 50 + (2 × stacks) gold. Draven loses half of his Adoration stacks upon death.
League of Draven is a passive ability that triggers whenever Draven catches a Spinning Axe, kills an unit, or kills an enemy champion.
Upon reaching 150 Adoration stacks, and every 100 stacks thereafter, as well as when he cashes at least 150 stacks in, Draven automatically sends a chat message notifying his team.
The spinning axe ricochets off the target high up into the air, landing 2 seconds later at a location determined by Draven's current movement. If Draven catches an axe, Spinning Axe is applied for no additional cost on his next basic attack.
Draven can hold up to two Spinning Axes in his hands at once.
The triggering attack will apply other on-hit effects and can critically strike as normal.
As with most on-hit physical damage, the bonus damage from Spinning Axe will apply life steal.
Critical strikes will not interact with Spinning Axe's bonus damage.
Attacks against structures will refresh the timer on active Spinning Axes, but will not deal bonus damage or cause the axe to bounce.
The bonus damage will be negated if the auto attack is dodged, blocked, parried, or if the attack misses. However, the axe will still bounce off.
Catching a Spinning Axe will not refresh Spellblade on catch.
Spinning Axe's landing location is determined by Draven's direction of movement at the time of Spinning Axe's impact on the target.
If Draven is not moving at this time, the Spinning Axe will bounce back towards his current location, either landing directly on him or to his sides.
On the other hand if Draven is moving, the Spinning Axe will bounce ahead of him, either directly in his path or slightly off to the sides.
A Spinning Axe that bounces off a target will remain in the air for 1.5 seconds, regardless of the distance between the target and the axe's destination.
Spinning Axe will place a visual cue on the ground where it will land. This visual cue is visible to both player teams, although Draven himself will see a more prominent marker (a golden sigil, or a microphone symbol in Primetime Draven's case).
If there is another Draven on the enemy team, he will be able to catch your axes and you will be able to catch his. Catching the enemy's Spinning Axes will have the same effect as if you caught one of your own, even if you had not cast Spinning Axe beforehand.
While Draven can only carry two axes at once, it is possible to have a three axes running at the same time by keeping at least one Spinning Axe in the air at all times, a.k.a. juggling.
Spinning Axes may optically pass Yasuo'sWind Wall, but will be destroyed upon impact.
Braum'sUnbreakable will block the attack from hitting someone behind Braum, and will cause the axe to bounce off of Braum instead.
COST: 40 mana
Active:Draven gains bonus attack speed for 3 seconds and bonus movement speed which decays over 1.5 seconds.
Airborne crowd control effects, such as knock-aside, will interrupt dash abilities without allowing them to complete their path. This is unlike other forms of crowd control, which will merely affect the target when they arrive.
COST: 120 mana
COOLDOWN: 110 / 100 / 90
Active:Draven hurls two massive axes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies struck.
Upon reaching the edge of the map, striking an enemy champion or upon the reactivation of Whirling Death, the axes slowly come to a stop before changing direction and returning to Draven, dealing the same physical damage to every enemy struck on the way back.
Whirling Death deals 8% less damage for each unit hit, down to a minimum of 40% damage. This damage reduction resets when the axes reverse direction.
"Changing direction" does not occur instantly. Rather, the axes will decelerate and come to complete stop before turning around. With careful timing, it is possible to reactivate the ability and cause an enemy to take two instances of damage instantly.
Upon changing direction, Whirling Death's damage will reset to the full amount. This is unlike a similar ability, Boomerang Blade, which continues to diminish throughout.
If Draven dies before the axe changes direction, it will fizzle upon reaching the edge of the map or striking an enemy champion. If the axe is already in the process of decelerating, it will still fizzle upon coming to a complete stop.
