League Of Legends Newest Champion Is A Magical Cat Named Yuumi (VIDEO)
League of Legends adds yet another champion to the ever-growing roster and this time – it’s a magical neko-chan! Introducing the adorable, magical feline called Yuumi, Riot brings to the roster a powerful support-type champion. When she’s not preoccupied with finding her master, a yordle enchantress named Norra, she bounces between worlds through a spell-book that doubles as a magic carpet and a portal between dimensions!
Sporting lush, purple fur and golden whiskers, League of Legend’s Yuumi is the ultimate support kitty with healing abilities, mana regeneration, powerful missiles, and great movement speed. Totally like a real cat. Check out her champion trailer below and fall in love with this sweet furbaby:
For more on Yuumi’s background story, check out the biography League of Legends has set up here. Starting April 30th, she’ll be available in PBE (Public Beta Environment) and is expected to make her official debut on May 14th. For now, check out her passives and abilities:
Q – Prowling Projectile
Yuumi fires a missile that deals magic damage to the first enemy hit. If the missile is in flight long enough, it deals bonus damage and slows enemies. While Attached, Yuumi fires a missile from her ally’s position and can direct the missile’s flight path with her mouse.
W – You and Me!
Passive: While Attached, Yuumi and her ally gain a percent of each other’s AD or AP converted to Adaptive Force.
Active: Yuumi starts with a point in her W. She dashes to an ally champion and attaches to them. While Attached, she follows her partner’s movement and is untargetable by everything except tower damage. Yuumi’s abilities fire from her ally’s location, and she can’t attack enemies. She can Unattach after a cooldown or Attach to another teammate with no cooldown.
E – Zoomies
Yuumi heals and gains a burst of movement speed. If Attached, her ally is targeted by the spell instead. This spell has two charges.
R – Final Chapter
Yuumi opens Book, launching waves of magic damage that root enemies after multiple hits. While using her ult, Yuumi can move, attach to ally champions, and heal.
Passive – Bop ‘n’ Block
Every so often, Yuumi’s next attack against an opponent restores mana and grants her a shield. If Yuumi is Attached, the shield protects her ally. The shield protects Yuumi or her ally until it’s broken.
