Yakarl the Scource, Blizzard King of the Barbarians launches his conquest upon Teleria with arguably the most awesome background in the game!
Upon his release he was considered average and very difficult to use. Considering the status of a Void Legendary he felt underwhelming and generally looked far better than he played. In Patch 5.30 he received quite a comprehensive rework. Freeze is very much a focus for the Blizzard King and he benefits from the debuff. He has a Candraphon-esque passive which increase his damage and decreases the damage he receives by 10% for every freeze debuff in the battle (ally or enemy). His A3 is now far less complicated, a straightforward AoE that carries a chance to freeze (100% if the TM is greater than 75% on the enemy and irresistible!). The rework has moved him up in usefulness and now can possibly play some MVP roles in teams.
His main uses will come in Doom Tower and Arena. His freeze and passive allow you to run him a bit squishy as he will gain innate damage reduction on his passive. He would work best when paired with another freeze Champion such as Ninja or Gliseah Soulguide. He is especially good against Dark Fae as he brings a 100% Turn Meter steal and can be used as your Arena Nuker. Remember: Freeze will penalise your damage reducing it by 25%!
