Legend of the Poro King

Legend of the Poro King mode

This year’s Snowdown brings with it our next featured game mode… and a legend. The “Legend of the Poro King”. We’ve dramatically changed what fights on the Howling Abyss will look like, so let’s get straight into the rules:

Played on the Howling Abyss, Legend of the Poro King is a 5v5 Blind Draft game mode, where your goal is still to destroy the enemy team’s nexus. However, you’ll have some Poro companions with you (to throw at each other of course), be diving deep to make #bigplays and work together to summon some help from the legendary Poro King himself.

New summoner spells

When playing the Legend of the Poro King, your regular summoner spells are replaced with two new ones, made just for the mode:

Poro Toss / Poro Dash
RANGE: 2500
COOLDOWN: 20
Poro Toss

Active - Poro Toss: Throws a Poro Poro a long distance, dealing 30 - 200 (based on level) true damage to the first enemy unit hit. Poro Toss can be recast for the next 3 seconds after it hits an enemy to cast Poro Dash.

INCOMING PORO! profileicon

Active - Poro Dash: Your champion surges into the target struck by Poro Toss. Dashing to the target will reduce Poro Toss' cooldown by 5 seconds.

"Poros are a model of Runeterran aerodynamics."

Ability Details

Additional Information:


To the King!
RANGE: Global
COOLDOWN: 10
To the King!

Passive: Hitting an enemy champion with a Poro Poro gives your team a To the King! Poro Mark. Upon reaching 10 To the King! Poro Marks, your team summons the Poro King Poro King to fight alongside them. While the Poro King Poro King is active, no To the King! Poro Marks can be scored by either team.

Active: Quickly dash to the Poro King Poro King's side. Can only be cast when the Poro King Poro King is summoned for your team.

"Poros tug the heartstrings. The rest of you just comes along for the ride."

Additional Information:

Riot Games does not make responsible for the constant commitment of magnicide against his royal highness, but it's responsible of Poro Poros injured in the process by the wretched and soulless teams.

Poro King

The Poro King is benevolent and will aid whichever team has summoned him. He can be dispelled, but only to return again when enough favour has been curried with him. As a tanky siege minion, he brings an impressive power boost to whichever team he’s aiding. His powers include:

  • Tanky siege minion with a LOT of health. Let him be your front line!
  • The Poro King absorbs all Poros within his range being thrown by the enemy team, making him a powerful pushing force.
  • The Poro King will heal nearby allied champions every 5 seconds for health and a smaller amount of mana based on the team’s average level.
  • Every 5 seconds, the Poro King will lob out Poros in an arc around him, dealing magic damage to enemies where they land.
