League of Legends, the soul of Riot Games has announced its 2021 plans. There are some major changes in the game and a complete rework of some current systems. But the most hyped news is that there is also a new champion in the town.
The new champion, Viego the Ruined King enters the League of Legends universe with a bold statement:
“NO PRICE IS TOO GREAT. NO ATROCITY BEYOND MY REACH. FOR HER… I WILL DO ANYTHING.”
Viego’s introduction trailer is also a banger where he looks nothing but badass.
“Once ruler of a long-lost kingdom, Viego perished over a thousand years ago when his attempt to bring his wife back from the dead triggered the magical catastrophe known as the Ruination. Transformed into a powerful, unliving wraith tortured by an obsessive longing for his centuries-dead queen, Viego now stands as the Ruined King, controlling the deadly Harrowings as he scours Runeterra for anything that might one day restore her, and destroying all in his path as the Black Mist pours endlessly from his cruel, broken heart.”
Viego the Ruined King possess one passive skill and one active skill.
- Sovereign’s Domination (Passive Skill)
“Viego can temporarily possess enemy champions he helps kill, healing for a portion of their max health. During possession, 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. While possessing an enemy, Viego also gets bonus movement speed when moving toward enemy champions.”
- Heartbreaker (Active Skill)
“Viego discards any bodies he is currently possessing and teleports forward, attacking the enemy champion in range with the lowest percent health and dealing bonus damage based on their missing health. Other enemies in range are knocked away.”
Viego will release in the patch 11.2, later this month, and is also the narrative focus for this whole season.
