League of Legends fourth new champion of the year is called Vex and will be arriving soon in-game.
Having been teased as part of the 'Sentinels of Light' event, but players will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the Yordle Champion.
Vex is the first Yordle, since Kled, for over 5 years. Not only that, she's the first female Yordle in over 9 years.
Here's what we know about the new League of Legends Champion.
Riot have confirmed that Vex will released on the 23rd September 2021.
Joining as part of update 11.19, she will be available in-game a day after the update goes live.
Who Is Vex?
First revealed during the recent Sentinels of Light event, Vex, the Gloomist, makes her debut in League of Legends this month. Vex is League's first new Yordle since 2016, and is a mid-lane mage who hates sunshine, happiness, and champions who dash all over Summoner's Rift.
Passive - Doom ‘n Gloom
Doom - Periodically, Vex becomes empowered by Doom, causing her next basic ability to interrupt dashes and Fear enemies.
Gloom - Whenever a nearby enemy dashes or blinks, they become marked with Gloom. Vex’s next basic attack against a marked enemy detonates the mark, dealing bonus damage and refunding part of Doom's cooldown.
Q - Mistral Bolt
Vex launches a wave forward, dealing magic damage to enemies it passes through. After a short delay, the wave accelerates but has reduced width. Mistral Bolt detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.
W - Personal Space
Vex gains a shield and emits a shockwave, dealing magic damage to enemies around her. Personal Space detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.
E - Looming Darkness
Shadow flies to a location, increasing in size as it travels. On arriving, Shadow deals magic damage, slows, and marks enemies hit with Gloom.
R - Shadow Surge
Shadow flies forward, marking and dealing magic damage to the first enemy champion hit. Vex can then recast this ability to have Shadow pull her to the marked target, dealing additional magic damage.
If the marked target dies within a short time of taking damage from Shadow Surge, Vex can cast Shadow Surge again within a few seconds.
Vex was meant to get a Ruination skin, but perhaps this theme will be her default skin. Reav3 has confirmed she will be shipped with a future event and get a skin with that skinline.
Her skin is shown at the end of the Champion Trailer, which is supposedly 'Dawnbringer Vex'.
