Nothing is more beloved in video games than the phrase that warns against looking too hard at monsters unless you become one. Such is the fate of Kai’Sa, the newest League of Legends champion unveiled by the MOBA today.
Kai’Sa’s been through a lot, apparently; trapped within the Void, Kai’Sa has survived her ordeal by forming a symbiotic second skin with a Void creature. She returns as the Daughter of the Void, using her newfound powers to attack lanes and structures and cores for some reason.
Kai’Sa’s passives see her building Plasma marks with her basic attacks that eventually erupt with additional damage and gaining evolved abilities based on stat gains from shop items or experience level. Kai’Sa operates at range, with an ability that reveals the first foe hit through the fog of war, a skill that improves her attack speed, and an Ultimate that dashes near a Plasma-marked champion and grants her a shield.
As one would expect, Kai’Sa works her best when she’s isolating a single target and can find herself in trouble if she gets too deep in enemy lines. If you’re the sort who likes that sort of playstyle – or are looking to see how best to counter this new threat – you can check out more details on LoL’s website.
Kai’Sa looks and sounds like an excellent harasser, though it also sounds like she might be tough to play her effectively. Are you intrigued by the new champion arrival? Do you think there’s someone in the LoL roster that fits this role already? Let us know what you think below.
If you’re the sort who’s drawn to the more colorful and “out of the norm” things that League of Legends is capable of, then you might be a fan of the upcoming League of Legends Champion, Zoe: The Aspect of Twilight.
Despite the perhaps sinister nature of her title, Zoe is anything but according to the teaser trailer that has been released. This mystical mischief-maker skips along the field, hurling magical spheres that bounce around and can hold enemies in place and put them to sleep. Her movement also sees her teleporting across lanes over short distances.
Meanwhile, the MOBA’s preseason update is on the horizon which will bring major shifts to League of Legends players, such as a combined Rune and Mastery system to let players customize their Champion to suit their playstyle and the removal of the level 30 cap.
Preseason for League of Legends will launch on Wednesday, November 8th with patch notes due on Tuesday, November 7th. The new Champion Zoe is due to arrive to the Rift with Patch 7.23. Information about the upcoming preseason can be read here, while Zoe’s trailer can be seen below.
Zoe’s child-like and playful nature is sure to get under some player skins, which could almost be a form of mental warfare and strategy all its own. We’re very intrigued to see what Zoe brings to the game and are definitely eager to know how LoL players will take to the preseason changes.
