Since I had some free time, I decided to look through League's Alpha Week 6 Patch (commonly called Closed Beta 1) and see what I could dig up on "Gavd". And yes before anyone states spelling it "Gavd" is wrong, I have bad news for you. There never was an "i" in his name.

in the Harrowing map a long time ago. The data I'm looking at is from v0.8.13.26 which predates a lot of things in League, including his cancellation.

To clear up some confusion, it's sometimes speculated that Gavd eventually became Zyra. This is false. The designer of Zyra even stated they had no idea Gavd existed during her production. Along with this, it's a generic plant based kit. Of all the cancelled champs that made it into the game, Well, Priscilla, Rob Blackblade, and Blindmonk eventually did release as a reworked characters Azir, Elise, Garen (presumably), and Lee Sin respectively. Only the previously mentioned ones (Tabu, Averdrian, Gavd) did not see a release as another champion.


The part you probably care about

Below you can find details related to his spells. I have changed some wording for clarity purposes. Unedited versions can be found in the pastebin link.

You can find a gallery of photos I grabbed of his model and his "vines"

I also loaded him up very briefly to show SOME of what works right now. You can view this footage here

Every bit of unaltered data I can find about him in the game the game can be found here
