The Celts knew a horned god, hiding behind the shadowed branch with eyes burning like untended embers. Cernunnos is the master here, the one who provides the abundance of crops and anything that lives. However, he will not tolerate the greedy.

Born before the Gods were even Gods, Cernunnos is the master of the Sacred Wheel, transforming with the seasons. Entering the battlefield of the gods, Cernunnos takes care of the humble and hunts the arrogant.

Cernunnos uses a glaive as his weapon and deals additional damage to all enemies in melee range with his basic attacks.

1st Ability: Shifter of Seasons

Shifter of Seasons

His first ability imbues Cernunnos’ glaive the power of the four seasons. By activating this ability, it rotates through four different bonuses to his primary attacks: Spring Growth causes bonus physical lifesteal, Summer Heat deals bonus damage, Autumn Decay causes debuff for 5 seconds, while Winter Chill slows enemies for 1 second.

2nd Ability: Bramble Blast

Bramble Blast

This ability allows Cernunnos fires a bramble forward in a line which roots the first enemy it hits. Upon hitting the enemy, wall, or reaching its max range, it will explode and deal damage as well as spawn an area of brambles at the location. The area will deal damage every 5 seconds and will slow the enemies inside it. It will last for 5 seconds.

3rd Ability: Horn Charge

Once activated, Cernunnos charges forward, deals damage and crash through all types of enemies.
