If you’re a League of Legends fan, you’ll have little question heard by now that the multiplayer game’s in for a brand-new champion this month. Viego, The Ruined King, has simply been revealed as the newest character to hitch the League of Legends champions lineup as half of a livestream giving us a flavour of all that’s to come back to Riot Games’ flagship MOBA game this 12 months.

Introduced with the League of Legends 2021 cinematic Ruination – which you’ll take a look at beneath – Viego is a fairly intimidating jungler with a blade and crown that glow with an eerie, otherwordly blue-green hue. Riot describes his abilities as “mist-commanding, death-dominating”, and from what’s been revealed in his abilities rundown, it appears to be like like we’ll see lots of this commanding, ghostly nature injected into his playstyle.

Take Viego’s Passive, for instance – known as Sovereign’s Domination, it lets The Ruined King “temporarily possess enemy champions he helps kill, healing for a portion of their max health”. Gulp. While he’s possessing them, “Viego’s items, attacks, and non-ultimate abilities become those of his slain enemy’s, and he gains a free cast of his own ultimate, Heartbreaker.” Plus, throughout this time, he additionally obtained bonus movespeed when heading in direction of champion enemies.

Viego’s Q, Blade of the Ruined King, has a passive and energetic ingredient. The first lets the champ’s assaults deal a piece of a goal’s present well being as bonus injury on-hit, and when Viego assaults an enemy that he not too long ago slapped with a capability, there’s a doubling up impact – his assault hits twice. “The second strike siphons health from the target instead of dealing regular damage, but still applies on-hit effects and can critically strike. This passive is maintained during possession,” Riot particulars. With Q’s energetic, however, Viego “stabs forward with his blade, damaging all enemies hit”.

The new champion’s W, Spectral Maw, is a fairly devastating fast assault, that sees Viego cost after which sprint ahead, “hurling a blast of mist that stuns and damages the first enemy hit”. The length of its stun impact and mist vary enhance with the time spent charging,  although injury and sprint vary don’t.

E, Harrowed Path, is an easy however efficient capacity. Viego spreads a “wave of Black Mist” round a wall close by, and whereas he’s immersed on this mist, he turns into camouflaged, and gaining each assault and motion pace.

Last up, Viego’s final – Heartbreaker. With this, Viego merely discards any our bodies he’s at present possessing, teleproting himself forwards, and attacking the champion enemy with the bottom well being unlucky sufficient to be standing throughout the capacity’s vary. He offers bonus injury to them, too, based mostly on their lacking well being, whereas “other enemies in range are knocked away”. Eek.
