Riot has revealed the next League of Legends champion, a forest fawn named Lillia.
The new champion’s kit seems focused on nature, with abilities that use all the powers of flowers and fauna. But that doesn’t mean she won’t be doing damage. Each of her abilities seems offensively focused and Riot mentions her playing mostly in the jungle.
Several of her abilities rely on her positioning to deal extra damage, or even true damage in the case of her Q. Meanwhile, her passive will let her mark players hit by her abilities for extra damage, and her ultimate ability gives her some crowd control in the form of a powerful sleep.
Lillia is likely to hit League of Legends’ Public Beta Environment later this week as part of the patch 10.14 cycle.
Passive — Dream-Laden Bough
Lillia’s abilities apply Dream Dust, dealing a portion of the target’s maximum health as magic damage over a duration.
Q — Blooming Blows
Lillia swings her branch in the air and deals magic damage to nearby enemies, dealing true damage to those at the outer edge of the circle. When she successfully lands the attack, Lillia also gets movement speed.
W — Watch Out! Eep!
Lillia winds up for a huge strike with her branch, dealing magic damage to enemies. Enemies at the center of the impact receive more damage.
E — Swirlseed
Lillia lobs a Swirlseed overhead, dealing Magic damage to enemies and slowing them for a duration. If Lillia’s Swirlseed misses, it’ll continue to roll until it hits an enemy or collides with the terrain.
R — Lilting Lullaby
Lillia casts a lullaby over her enemies and those affected by her Dream Dust become increasingly slowed before falling asleep for a duration of time. When awakened by damage, enemies take additional magic damage.
