I believe all of us know the passive abilities of many heroes, but even if we don’t we can find information about them to the icon next to the other abilities. Let’s start with the basics then; what is a “passive” ability? Passive is the ability that does not need to be activated like all the others by pressing a button. That’s why it is called passive, because it activates itself. Now, the hidden passives are those which exist because of the Lore of the game. Here we go then!
- The most known hidden ability is that for each ninja in a team, they each lose 1hp. Those who carry the buff “This unit is a flippin’ ninja”, activate this ability.
-One of the less known is that when Graves hit with “Smokescreen” an enemy Nocturne, most of the times he yells a special taunt!
-When there is a Cassiopeia in the Arena of Justice, all the snakes appearing on the map as a special animation are hidden, showing complete submission to their queen.
-When Draven catches the Spinning Axe of an enemy Draven, he will make a special taunt!
-Those of you who have the skin of Jax “Jaximus” observe that at sometimes he says: “Here’s to you kid”, which refers to Joe, a kid with a serious illness, who made it to Riot offices through the program “Make a Wish”.
-Something similar to the ninjas’ buff also exists for the pirates, Gangplank and Miss Fortune. “Yarr! I’m a mighty Pirate”.
-If a player has Kha’Zix and an enemy has Rengar and Kha’Zix kills Rengar, he gains the ability to evolve a fourth skill. If the enemy Rengar kills Kha’Zix and he has made his special item, he directly loads to full stacks. This also works with assists!
-Leona’s Sunlight does reduced damage to all champions wearing sunglasses. That includes all Commando skins, Surfer Signed, Classic and Aristocrat Vayne, Vandal Twitch, Vandal Gragas, Safari and Officer Caitlyn, Dragon Fist Lee Sin, Corporate Mundo, Hired Gun Graves and Riot Graves.
-When Fizz:Chum the Waters ultimate ability kill a yordle (except from Teemo and Heimerdinger for unknown reasons), he eats the whole body and he doesn’t just leave to the ground in order to be reborn.
Have fun to the Arenas of Justice!!!
