Vilemaw is a powerful monster on Twisted Treeline in League of Legends, who serves a similar purpose to Baron Nashor.

When defeated, Vilemaw will grant all living members of the killing team the buff Crest of Crushing Wrath which grants bonus health and mana regeneration, an attack speed buff, and 20% cooldown reduction.

Abilities

Vilemaw

Vilemaw has a powerful AoE conical pull attack and a stacking debuff that reduces your armor and magic resistance by 0.5 (estimate). The debuff caps at 60 stacks (total reduction is 30). Being hit by its melee basic attacks will apply one stack, while his long ranged attacks apply 4 stacks and his short ranged AoE slam attacks will apply 15 stacks.

Trivia

  • Vilemaw has an easter egg where if two champions dance in front of him, Vilemaw will dance along with them. His dance is a reference to "The Carlton Dance" from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. A side-by-side comparison can be seen here.
  • The skeleton of a dragon can be seen near Vilemaw. It was confirmed to be the former most powerful neutral monster  Ebonmaw (the dragon on Twisted Treeline) by Tamat in a forum post found here, but Kitae says that this is merely a tribute and not canon.
    • Another tribute to Ebonmaw is Vilemaw having the word "maw" in his name.[1]
  • The mythical spider god mentioned in  Elise's lore is Vilemaw.
    • It was confirmed by Kitae here .
    • She however also said that as well as Baron Nashor, Vilemaw is supremely more powerful in the actual lore than in the game, far more poweful than any champion - or a lot of champions - alone, much like an actual god.
  • Upon defeat, Vilemaw doesn't simply die - instead, he retreats back into his lair in the background.
    • This may be a reference to the giant spider, Shelob, from Lord of the Rings who, when defeated by Sam, crawls back into her cave and is never mentioned again.
  • When you consume Vilemaw as Nunu you will get the Lizard buff. This is the only way to get the buff as Nunu on the Twisted Treeline.
