Volibear: Champion rework

The Goal of this Rework is:

1. Make Volibear a Tank - Vanguard. This means less damage to squishy targets, less execution power but more CC and better engage potential.

2. Make him better at chasing, ganking, team fighting and locking down a single-target for his team.

3. Add to his thematics - Armored Bear, Thunder's Roar. This means better durability and more lightnings.


STATISTICS:

HEALTH increased to 585 (+ 90)

ATTACK DAMAGE increased to 57 (+ 4)

ATTACK SPEED increased to 0.694 (+ 2.7%)

ARMOR adjusted to 29 (+ 3.3)

MOVE. SPEED decreased to 335
