The Rift’s newest marksman comes from the Void.

Riot Games

UPDATE: The North American announcement page is now out, and the post has been updated to include videos of each ability.

After a few weeks of teasing, League of Legends’ newest champion, Kai’Sa, Daughter of the Void, has finally been revealed.

The announcement of the champion has come from an apparent Garena leak, which means that we don’t have working videos for the abilities yet, but we do have Riot’s official descriptions for each one.

This post will be updated as most information becomes available.

Passive — Second Skin

Caustic Wounds:Kai’Sa’s basic attacks mark enemies with Plasma, dealing increasing bonus magic damage. After a few successive attacks, the Plasma ruptures for a burst of damage based on the target’s missing health.

Nearby allies’ immobilizing effects add stacks of Plasma.

Living Weapon:

Kai’Sa’s symbiote-suit adapts to her chosen attack style, evolving her abilities based on permanent stats gained from shop items and experience level.

Q — Icathian Rain

Kai’Sa releases a swarm of missiles evenly distributed among nearby enemies, with additional hits on the same target dealing slightly reduced damage.

Living Weapon:

With enough bonus Attack Damage, Icathian Rain fires significantly more missiles.

W — Void Seeker

Kai’Sa fires off a beam of Void energy, revealing the first enemy hit, dealing magic damage, and applying stacks of Plasma.

Living Weapon:With enough bonus Ability Power, Void Seeker deals more damage and partially refunds the cooldown on champion hit.

E — Supercharger

Kai’Sa charges up, briefly increasing her movement speed but losing the ability to attack. After charging up, Kai’Sa whips out the big guns to increase her attack speed for a few seconds.

Basic attacks reduce Supercharger’s cooldown.

Living Weapon:

With enough bonus Attack Speed, Supercharger briefly grants true invisibility while charging up.

R — Killer Instinct

Kai’Sa dashes at extremely high speed with long range to a location near an enemy champion marked with Plasma and briefly gains a damage-absorbing shield.
