Gnar's Passive
Gnar generates 4 / 7 / 11 Rage by dealing and receiving damage. At max Rage his next ability transforms him into Mega Gnar for 15 seconds.

Mini Gnar: Gain 0-20 bonus movement speed, bonus attack speed and 0-100 bonus attack range (depending on level).

Mega Gnar: Gain 100-831 max health, 3.5-54.5 armor, 3.5-63 magic resist and 8-50.5 attack damage (depending on level).

At max Rage, Gnar will automatically transform after 4 seconds if he does not use an ability. Rage decays after 13 seconds if Gnar has not dealt or received damage. Rage gain is greater when dealing damage to champions.
