Viego’s Dark Arsenal Released

So, some of the cool stuff we witnessed during the past League of Legends Livestream was the nearby arrival of Viego to the game’s lineup of champions, alongside a listing of his special powers and abilities. Despite the hero not yet having a clear release date planned, he’s rumored to be making a splash as part of the next patch -strictly patch  #11.2- which is expected to land on January 21st. 

Thankfully, the folks at Riot did spend a little time detailing his special abilities, which feature the standard execute, a stun and a camouflage ability. Viego’s special charm lies in his ability to bring back enemies from the dead and making use of their powers for a short while.  

Let’s now talk about the nitty gritty of Viego’s abilities, as dished out by Riot:

Sovereign Domination: Viego will assume the powers of enemy champions for a short while, as long as he helped in defeating said enemy. 

Blade of the Ruined King: Viego can draw extra damage to enemies with his attack; the healthier they are, the more damage Viego is able to inflict!

Spectral Maw: Viego casts a demonic mists before his enemies, stunning and damaging the health of the first champion he strikes. 

Harrowed Path: Viego gains camouflage and increased attack speed for a brief time after casting a dark shadow over a nearby wall.

Heartbreaker: After dispossessing himself of any collect champion souls, Viego teleports in front of the weakest enemy in range and draws terrible damage, all the while knocking every other champion close by.

This will not be Viego’s only appearance in a Riot gaming franchise. The new LoL champion will also play a pivotal villainous part in the upcoming turn-based RPG title The Ruined King: A League of Legends story, planned for release later on in 2021.
