Riot Games revealed the newest champion in the League of Legends universe, Rell, The Iron Maiden. Rell is the 153rd champion to be added to the League universe and the sixth new champion this year alongside champs like Sett, Lillia and Yone.
Rell was previously teased this year in the Riot Champion Roadmap as a support champion. Her kit places her as a warrior with metal-wielding abilities to slow, stun and pierce through her enemies. Let’s take a look at Riot’s brand new champion.
Passive: Break the Mold
Rell attacks very slowly, but temporarily steals a portion of her target’s Armor and Magic Resist to deal bonus damage based on the amount stolen.
Additionally, Rell can siphon resistances from multiple different foes to grow extremely tanky.
Q – Shattering Strike
Rell stabs forward with her lance, breaking any shields and damaging all enemies hit (damage decreases after the first target). If Rell has an ally bound with E – Attract and Repel, she and that ally recover health for each champion hit by this ability.
W(1)- Ferromancy: Crash Down
(While mounted) Rell leaps and transforms her mount into heavy armor, gaining a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or she remounts. On landing, she knocks up enemies around her. Rell can cast her E and R during the change.
W(2) – Ferromancy: Mount Up
(While armored) Rell rushes forward and transforms her armor into a mount, gaining a burst of movement speed. During her next attack, she charges her target to deal bonus damage and flip them over her shoulder.
E – Attract and Repel
Rell magnetically binds a piece of her armor to a target allied champion, granting them bonus Armor and Magic Resist while nearby. Rell can recast this spell to break the bind and stun all enemies around and between her and her bound ally.
R – Magnet Storm
Rell erupts in magnetic fury, yanking nearby enemies toward her. She then creates a gravitational field around her, pulling nearby enemies in for a few seconds. The field doesn’t interrupt her enemies’ other actions.
Rell is expected to be on the PBE servers starting Wednesday and is expected to be released mid-December.
