Riot announced earlier today that League of Legends will be adding a new champion named Lillia “The Bashful Bloom”. Along with this announcement was a description of all her abilities as well as some of her background.
“Taking up her branch, Lillia left the garden and entered the world of humans—a world she had always wanted to know, but one that frightened her now more than anything. It was so unlike what she understood.
“Hiding just out of sight, Lillia now helps people’s dreams be born, drawn forward by glimpses of who they could be, and by what may be trapped beneath their tangles. By helping humans realise their deepest wishes, Lillia realises her own, the bud on her head blooming as she is filled with joy.
- 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 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 will take additional magic damage.
Lillia will join the cast of 148 other champions as another Jungler, the class which specializes in moving across the map and helping other lanes. She will be released along with the Summer Festival on July 22. The game is also coming to consoles later this year. Riot also recently added a new agent to their FPS, Valorant.
