Riot Games reveals the next champion coming to League of Legends.

Riot Games has revealed details of its next champion in League of Legends. The game developer released a video after a lot of patience by the community. The new champion is called Sylas, the Unchained.

The Champion was first revealed as a young boy who was conflicted about his role to catch fellow mages. He set out on his own path after helping capture fellow mages who break the Demacian law. Along the way, he was kept in captivity, in chains. When he finally broke free of these chains, Sylas the Unchained was born.

The trademark ability of the champion is to copy the ultimate of another champion. This champion has great mobility and crowd control. The champion definitely will turn imbalanced hero picks against themselves. With its ability to steal ultimates, it provides some sort of balance to the game. At first sight, it will definitely be a great pick for the top lane. However, ultimately, its heavily dependent on teams’ playstyle and their choice of characters for the team.

A few more details of Sylas the Unchained

  • Crush your foes in combat by weaving in basic attacks after each spell cast for maximum damage. The perfect sequence includes a Petricite Burst after every ability, leaving enemies bruised and broken—if not dead.
  • Consider all your options when Hijacking ultimates. What do you need most right now? What might be critical a little later? Seizing a brutal finishing move could clinch your current skirmish, but taking a powerful crowd control spell might win you the next team fight.
  • You can’t Hijack the same enemy for a while after you take their ability, so plot out the full revolt before you start stealing ults. There’s no rush to use what you have, but hesitate too long and you’ll miss opportunities to unleash even more ultimates. Triumph over your opponents by picking the right time—and power—to turn against them.
