Hey, this is Ciderhelm and welcome to the Vainglory Hero Spotlight, today we will be looking at Uzasu, a ravenous predator who stalks his enemies from beneath the earth.
A terrifying denizen that thrives around the Churn, many cultures speaks of the dreaded Uzas’Ulod, the Tunneling Horror.
Terrible rumors of entire groups traversing near Halcyon Wells showing up empty with only frightened horses.
Whispers of villages left ominously deserted; save for several large tunnels.
LINK TO THE ARTIST
Few have seen this tunneling monstrosity and lived to recount their harrowing tales. They speak of a fleshy tower with a maw of endless teeth exhaling acidic breath that melts through even Gythian Steel. They also speak of its bestial roar, an unnerving bellow, echoing in their memories for eternity.
Most horrific of all, survivors who were not traumatized to insanity recount how the creature assimulates the voice of all it’s previous prey, forever preserving their last moments.
With its primary hunting grounds devoid of any prey big enough for sustenance, Uzazu has now started delving deeper into more untainted territories, spreading terror and destruction in its mindless quest to sustain itself and survive.
The most disturbing aspect of Uzasu is that wherever the man chained to the Churn travels, the abomination follows; spreading the Churn further. Perhaps the Churn Tunneler is more intelligent than suspected.
Ingame, Uzasu is a subterranean horror who lurks just below the surface, setting traps to ensnare his prey while diving in to consume his next meal.

FIRST ABILITY: Excavate
Uzasu instantly burrows UNDERGROUND, reducing movement speed by 1.2 and losing the ability to use basic attacks or active items, except for cams. Uzasu gains a new set of abilities while UNDERGROUND.
- While UNDERGROUND, Uzasu gains invisibility and cannot be revealed by enemy cams and scout traps. However, enemies within 5 meters of Uzasu will be able to see him.
Uzasu can activate Excavate while UNDERGROUND to erupt out of the ground, KNOCKING UP all enemies underneath him dealing crystal damage.
- When used against NEUTRAL monsters, Excavate deals only 50% of the total damage as TRUE DAMAGE.

SECOND ABILITY: Tremor Shock/Intrusion
Passive: Uzasu’s abilities leave behind 3-meter radius SINKHOLES on the ground whenever he goes UNDERGROUND or SURFACES. (max. 5 SINKHOLES)
When enemies step on a SINK HOLE, they are REVEALED and ROOTED for 1.2 seconds; destroying the SINKHOLE. Enemies can spot SINKHOLES if they have direct vision of them.
(UNDERGROUND) Tremor Shock:
Uzasu dashes a fixed distance, damaging and DRAGGING all enemies along the path of his dash.
- If Uzasu manages to pin enemies against terrain or a SINK HOLE, they take bonus crystal damage and Uzasu’s next basic attack damages all enemies in a 4-meter circle.
Uzasu selects a SINK HOLE anywhere on the map and instantly dashes towards it tunneling UNDERGROUND, consuming the SINKHOLE upon SURFACING at his destination. Usazu’s next basic attack deals AMPLIFIED damage within 3 seconds upon arrival.
This ability cools down twice as fast whenever Tremor Shock is used.
