Nocturne's Passive
Nocturne's Passive
Nocturne's basic attack is periodically enhanced, dealing 20% of his physical damage to his target and 120% of his physical damage to surrounding enemies, while also healing himself for 15−40 (+15% of ability power) per enemy hit (depending on level).

Umbra Blades' damage to the primary target can critically strike for bonus physical damage.

Basic attacks reduce Umbra Blades' cooldown by 1 second, increased to 3 seconds against monsters and enemy champions.

Nocturne's Duskbringer

Nocturne throws a shadow blade which deals 65 / 110 / 155 / 200 / 245 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage) physical damage, leaves a Dusk Trail, and causes champions who are hit to also leave a Dusk Trail for 5 seconds. While on the trail, Nocturne ignores unit collision and has 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% increased Movement Speed and 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 additional Attack Damage.

Passive: Nocturne empowers his blades, permanently gaining 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 % attack speed.

Active: Nocturne creates a magical shield for 1.5 seconds which will block the next enemy spell that hits him. If an ability is blocked by the shield, his passive attack speed is doubled for 5 seconds.

If Shroud of Darkness is active when Nocturne re-casts Paranoia to dash to a target, it'll stay active until Nocturne reaches his target.

Nocturne plants a nightmare into his target's mind, dealing damage each second for total 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 260 (+100% of ability power) over 2 seconds and fearing the target for 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25 seconds causing them to run away from Nocturne with impaired movement if they do not get out of (465) range by the end of the duration. Nocturne also gains massively increased movement speed when moving toward feared targets.
R
Nocturne's Paranoia
Paranoia Nocturne's Ultimate (R) Ability

150 / 125 / 100 / 100 / 100

He can then launch himself at an enemy champion (2500 / 3250 / 4000 range), dealing 150 / 275 / 400 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.
