Janus is more effective in jungle fights than in lane.
Every time Janus crosses a threshold or a portal, he ages and grows wiser, receiving more magical scaling for his subsequent ability cast.
Skill 1: Portal
The world is given a doorway by Janus. The portal will make a passageway through to the other side of the wall that Janus or any ally may utilize if it is put against a wall. The portal can be accessed from either side, however it only remains open for one use. Enemies and Janus will fall into the portal if it is set up on the ground and be teleported into the air above it. Upon landing, enemies suffer damage and are treated as exiled.
Skill 2: Unstable Vortex
Two unstable, tethered portals that are far too small to fit within are created by Janus and launched forward, doing damage to any opponents in their path. When an enemy is struck by both portals, 15% more damage is dealt.
Skill 3: Threshold
When Janus and his friends pass through a portal or cross a threshold, their movement speed is increased by a maximum of two stacks. Active: Janus creates a gap across several dimensions. Enemies who cross the chasm are marked with Phase and slowed. When struck by Janus’ destructive abilities, the targets in Phase suffer additional Magical scaling damage.
Ultimate: Through Space and Time
Janus obtains a passive boost in magical penetration. A portal is burned into every surface it touches within range 500 as Janus shoots multi-dimensional energy across the battlefield while becoming CC Immune. These portals are used by allies, last for ten seconds, and remain active after their initial usage. The more distance the energy travels, the more magical scaling damage is dealt to the enemies. More than 75% of an enemy god’s maximum health cannot be taken in damage.
