Sakari is a Ranged, magical damage Control Mage, who has a good bit of burst damage early game, while also having a ton of CC due to her stackable debuff, Frozen. Her Q has an extremely low cooldown, allowing for heavy amounts of harass if landed consistently, not to mention giving her amazing chase ability from all the slow that the Frozen stacks provide. Her E gives her a nice chunk of damage to play off of in the early game, giving whatever lane she ends up going into quite a bit of kill potential early on, making it easier to snowball the carry that comes with you. Using her W, she can easily block off escape paths from her enemies, and make even more Frost so that she can harass using her Q even more. Finally we have her Ultimate ability, Avalanche, which causes a large chunk of damage on the initial hit, as well as when it explodes. Anyone hit directly by the landing crystal is stunned for 1.75 seconds, allowing your team to either clean up a fight or reposition themselves for a more favorable reengagement.

“I don't have to worry about falling in; I can't freeze.”
Every decade, Sakari's tribe set their most beloved youth adrift on ice flor, offered as a spouse to the Spirits of the north for good weather and fine hunting. She doesn't speak of what happened, but returned frost-brittle and bearing the Spirit of Inevitability.
Watch your step!
I can make it, Annik.
I'm not fishing you out.
I can do this. I'm agile. I'm strong. I can make a seagull explode. In one punch.
You can't even catch a gull.
I could catch gulls by the handful. Armload. A big squawking pile. I'll put them all in your igloo so they keep you awake.
The ice is tilting. You gonna jump?
Yes. No. Yes. You'll catch me?
Be my hero?
Heh. I'm right here Sakari.
Wait. Wait. I just need to-- CATCH ME!
No. This is a dream. I'm going to wake up any time. I'll wake up and everyone will be there. We'll have salt charr and seal. Grandmama will make some of the trade-tea. Annik will come over, and all the dogs will jump up.
I just need to wake up is all.
I need to hold my breath until I wake up.
Go away. You're not here. I'm not going with you. Shoo!
I'm going to reach the far shore. There'll be flowers and trees. The kind of trees that stretch up to the sky and catch rain. Not snow, I'm going to feel rain on my face and see green everywhere. The wind won't bite. The sky will be dark at night. I'll run barefoot and scrunch my toes in mud. I'll be with Annik as long as he stops leaving his socks on my stuff. We'll hunt seals with Tiluk and Sinaa. I'll sing and they'll be impressed. We'll start a band.
And I'll have a pony. Maybe with gull eggs and seaweed. That sounds good.
I'm going to live, so go away. There's too much I want to do.
I'm going to live.
Somebody catch me.
Frost Shaper - Black Ice |
Sakari uses Frost to cast Ice Lance. Whenever Sakari deals damage with an ability she gains a stack of Black Ice, granting her 6 (+7.5% Power) Armor for 4 seconds. Stacks up to 5 times for a maximum of 30 (+25% Power) Armor.
Ice Lance |
Passive: After not using abilities for 6 seconds Sakari will begin to rapidly freeze the air around her, restoring her supply of Frost.
Passive: Sakari creates an Ice Shard every 10 (based off cooldown reduction) seconds and begins to freeze the air around her more quickly, permanently gaining 10/15/20/25/30 Power and causing her Frost to replenish 0.5/1/1.5/2/2.5 seconds faster.
Sakari blasts the target with ice, consuming any stacks of Frozen on the target to deal 20/30/40/50/60 plus an addition 50/75/100/125/150 (+30% Power) magical damage for each stack of frozen the target had.
Sakari summons a massive ice crystal at target location, dealing 50/100/150 (+20% Power) magical damage and stunning any enemies within a small radius for 1.75 seconds. The crystal freezes the surrounding area on impact, creating a patch of ice that applies one stack of Frozen to any enemies that enter it.
