Last weekend, Riot Games teased what everybody thought was a new League of Legends Champion. As we commented back then, it was supposed to be a ‘runaway criminal’ champ, with a Support role and features similar to Nautilus or Leona’s… and we were right! A few hours ago Riot introduced us to Rell, the full metal equinist.
The new champ, original from Noxus, is an iron maiden that was meant to be a super-soldier but managed to run away and become a very dangerous criminal, as her lore explains.
In the Summoner’s Rift, Rell appears to have a tanky support role with an insane mechanic… her mount can transform into a heavy armor!!
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 Attract and Repel (E), she and that ally recover health for each champion hit by this ability.
W1 – Ferromancy: Crash Down
(Can only cast while mounted) Rell leaps into the sky and transforms her mount into heavy armor, gaining a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or remounting. Upon landing, she knocks up all enemies around her. Rell can cast Attract and Repel (E) and Magnet Storm (R) during the transformation.
Rell has increased durability, low movement speed, and a movement speed cap while in armored form. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Mount Up.
W2 – Ferromancy: Mount Up
(Can only cast while in the armored form) 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.
Rell has increased movement speed while mounted. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Crash Down.
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’s first skin: Battle Queen
The new League of Legends Champion comes alongside a new set of skins that will dress Diana, Qiyana, Janna, and Katarina as well!!
