Champion Reveal: Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess

Most champions arm themselves with swords or guns or magic or whatever, but Illaoi’s bringing a freakin’ god to the Rift. One of the new breed of juggernauts, she’s a slow but impactful solo laner in any game, with tentacles that offer huge zone control once they worm their way into a game. And while she lacks traditional gap closers to start fights, she can pull the spirits from distant squishies and destroy them, rendering yet another vessel for Illaoi’s god, Nagakabouros.

Champion Reveal: Kindred, the Eternal Hunters

We’re almost ready to breathe life into League’s next champion, a marksman designed for a life in the jungle. Kindred prowls through camps, marking enemy champions for death and permanently growing in strength if they’re able to carry out the promised sentence. But just as Kindred brings death, so can they delay it. Should their allies meet deadly force, Kindred can create a large blessed zone that, for a few valuable seconds, denies the ever-creeping and inevitable clutches of death.

Champion Reveal: Tahm Kench, the River King

Tahm Kench is a tough solo lane or support tank with a taste for… well, pretty much everything. He’ll happily munch down on an enemy champion once he’s slathered them up, secreting them in his sizeable belly - and out of a fight - while the River King’s allies leverage their advantage. But Tahm Kench’s stomach isn’t reserved solely for his enemies: after swallowing an ally, he can dive into one his signature whirlpools before throwing himself into the heart of the enemy team.

Rek’Sai, the Void Burrower, revealed

The shifting Shuriman sands harbor countless tales, and while most speak of its long-forgotten civilization, others reveal something else: terror within the dunes. The nomads and traders that cross through Runeterra’s golden lands know the stories well enough, the bloody remains of their kin testament to the void beast below. And while some enter Shurima unaware of the monster’s fearsome reputation, few last long once they enter Rek’Sai’s lands.

Sion, the Undead Juggernaut, revealed

To take a life is a simple enough thing, yet no-one perfected it quite like Sion. He led army after army through the jaws of death, charging through the massed ranks of Noxus’s enemies time and time again until his burgeoning city-state stood above all nations. But even the mighty fall, and though Sion’s death shocked the people of Noxus, it ultimately also brought them safety from Demacia’s now leaderless forces.

Gnar, the Missing Link, revealed

Time marches on for most, but not Gnar. A yordle born millennia ago, Gnar was captured and trapped in true ice, frozen - quite literally - in time. Civilizations formed and fell as the prehistoric yordle vacantly stared on, but nothing – not even true ice – could confine Gnar forever. After breaking free, Gnar wandered Runeterra until he found himself taken in by his yordle descendants. But, as they would soon discover, there’s a beast behind the boy.
