Item VFX

  • Ravenous Hydra item Ravenous Hydra can only be purchased by Melee role melee champions and shapeshifter champions with a melee form, its passive and active cannot be used when performing Ranged role ranged basic attacks.
  • Ravenous Hydra item Ravenous Hydra shares the Cleave and Crescent effects with Tiamat item Tiamat. Cleave has a radius of ~385; Crescent has a radius of 400.[2] Cleave is centered on the target; Crescent is centered on the user.
  • The splash damage heal does not benefit from Heal power Heal power.
  • Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage increases the heal from the splash damage twice, for 69%, instead of the usual 30%. This only happens if the heal comes from life steal.
  • Activating Crescent does not reset the autoattack timer. Rather, the effect uses the champion's autoattack animation to display the effect. It is also done faster the more attack speed the champion has.
  • Cleave will not trigger if it has triggered on a different target in the last 0.05 seconds.[3] This affects abilities such as ShyvanaSquare Shyvana's Twin Bite Twin Bite in Dragon form. There is no cooldown on triggering the effect on a single target, such as Double Strike Double Strike or ShyvanaSquare Shyvana's Twin Bite Twin Bite in Human form.
  • GangplankSquare Gangplank's Parrrley Parrrley and PoppySquare Poppy's Iron Ambassador Iron Ambassador are the only abilities that can apply on-hit effects as Melee role melee attacks while behaving as Ranged role ranged attacks.

Trivia

  • Searching for "no damage" in the shop will bring up Ravenous Hydra. While there were many speculated reasons for this, in actuality it is because of the "no" in "RaveNOus" and "Damage" in its listed stats (+80 attack damage); the item can just as easily be found searching "Raven Age" or "Dam us".
  • Ravenous Hydra is based (probably) on Yggdra Union's Bandits weapon.
  • This item is very similar to the DotA item Battle fury.
  • Along with Titanic Hydra item Titanic Hydra, Ravenous Hydra borrows its namesake from the Hydra, a many-headed beast.
