League of Legends Vilemaw



Vilemaw is the toughest neutral monster on the Twisted Treeline. Tthis massive undead spider represents a significant threat for a full team of champions. Similar to Baron Nashor, defeating Vilemaw grants bonus gold along with a team-wide buff. The buff, Crest of Crushing Wrath , grants attack speed, cooldown reduction, health and mana regeneration.


The overgrown spider's signature move is a powerful "AoE conical pull-attack", where the champions in its range get pulled back towards Vilemaw's center. Vilemaw also poisons champions with a stacking debuff that reduces your armor and magic resistance by 0.5 per stack (estimate). The debuff caps at 60 stacks (total reduction is 30). Vilemaws' melee basic attacks will apply one stack, while his long ranged attacks apply 4 stacks and his short ranged AoE slam attacks will apply 15 stacks at once.



  • Vilemaw has an easter egg where if two champions dance in front of him, Vilemaw will dance along with them. Its dance is a reference to "The Carlton Dance" from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

  • The skeleton of a dragon can be seen near Vilemaw. It was confirmed to be the former most powerful neutral monster of the Twisted Treeline, Ebonmaw.

  • Another tribute to Ebonmaw is Vilemaw having the word "maw" in his name.

  • The mythical spider god mentioned in Elise's lore is Vilemaw, although in the lore he's supremely more powerful than in the game, far more poweful than any champion - or a lot of champions - alone, much like an actual god.

  • Upon defeat, Vilemaw doesn't simply die - instead, he retreats back into his lair in the background. This may be a reference to the giant spider "Shelob" from Lord of the Rings who, when defeated by Sam, crawled back into her cave and is never mentioned again.

  • When you consume Vilemaw as Nunu you will recieve the Lizard buff (reference to the old Twisted Treeline). This is the only way to get the buff again.
