Nilah is League of Legends’ new whip-wielding champion

She’s full of joy — and also full of dashes

Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

Nilah is the next League of Legends champion. Riot Games teased the new character in a trailer on Friday morning.

Nilah seems to wield a water whip that she draws from the orb on her hip, and uses that to take down enemies while she weaves through them with tons of dashes. The clip also shows her gaining some type of unspecified immunity that allows her to avoid Twisted Fate’s yellow card stun. With all her dashes, Nilah will be hard to run from.

Her trailer also shows a set of demon hands swirling from the waters and giving her a high five, so while she’s obviously on some good terms with these demons, it’s unknown how they tie into her storyline.

We will likely see a more detailed explanation of her kit, as well as her addition to the Public Beta Environment soon. Her full release should follow that by two weeks, as long as everything goes well on the PBE.

League of Legends just added a new champion, Bel’veth, who joined the game on June 9, about three weeks after she was revealed.
