Every several seconds, Gangplank's next melee attack ignites the target, dealing 55 (+10 per level) (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) bonus true damage over 2.5 seconds and granting 30% movement speed for 2 seconds.

Destroying a Powder Keg instantly refreshes Trial by Fire.

Gangplank shoots an enemy with his pistol, dealing 20 / 45 / 70 / 95 / 120 (+1.0 per attack damage) physical damage. Gangplank gains 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 extra gold and Silver Serpents (which can be spent to upgrade his ultimate) if Parrrley deals a killing blow.

This ability can critically strike and applies on-hit effects, but doesn't apply Trial By Fire.

Passive: Gangplank stores a charge of Powder Keg every few seconds, up to a maximum of 3 stored at once.

Active: Gangplank places a powder keg that can be attacked by himself or his enemies. Lasts 25 seconds or until destroyed.

If Gangplank destroys a keg, it explodes in an AoE blast that slows enemies by 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 % for 2 seconds and spreads the damage of the attack to all nearby enemies. Other casks within the zone will chain explode. Explosions ignore 40% of their targets' armor, and enemy champions take 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 / 180 bonus physical damage.

If an enemy destroys the cask, it defuses the explosion and grants gold.

Gangplank's Cannon Barrage
Cannon Barrage Gangplank's Ultimate (R) Ability

180 / 160 / 140 / 140 / 140
Active: Gangplank signals his ship to fire 12 waves of cannonballs upon the target area over 8 seconds in clusters of 3 every 2 seconds, revealing it for the duration. Each wave deals 40 / 70 / 100 (+10% of ability power) magic damage and slows enemies hit by 30% for 0.5 seconds.

Gangplank can purchase upgrades to his ship in the store at the cost of 500 Silver Serpents each, which improve Cannon Barrage:
- Death's Daughter: An initial mega-cannonball lands in the center of the area of effect, dealing a cluster's worth of true damage and slowing enemies within by 60% for 1.5 seconds.
- Raise Morale: Allies within the area gain 30% bonus movement speed, persisting for 2 seconds after leaving it. Gangplank can also benefit from this effect.
- Fire At Will: Fires 6 additional waves with increasing rate of fire over the duration.
