New League of Legends champion: Pyke ability kit announced

And you thought other supports were bloodthirsty

Riot Games has announced League of Legends’ newest champion, Pyke, The Bloodharbor Ripper. While Pyke is designed to be a support, he looks pretty different from the game’s other support champions. Not only does he appear to be a serial murderer, but he is also designed to deal damage and take kills for himself to help him buy offensive items.

Here’s a full look at Pyke’s abilities:

Passive — Gift of the Drowned Ones

When Pyke is unseen by enemies, he rapidly regenerates some of the health lost to enemy champions.

Pyke also converts his bonus health into bonus attack damage instead.

Q — Bone Skewer

Tap: Pyke stabs and grealy slows all enemies in front of him

Hold: Pyke readies and then throws his harpoon, impaling the first enemy struck and pulling them a distance toward him.

W — Ghostwater Dive

Pyke dives into spectral waters, entering camouflage and gaining a significant increase to his movement speed that decays over a few seconds.

Camouflage hides Pyke from view while enemies remain outside his immediate area. Attack or casting spells immediately ends camouflage.

E — Phantom Undertow

Pyke dashes, leaving behind a drowned phantom. After a delay, the phantom returns to Pyke, damaging and stunning enemies it passes through.

R — Death from Below

Pyke strikes in an X-shaped area, blinking to champions and executing those below a certain flat amount of health. Enemies in the X that are not executed take damage equal to this amount.

When a champion dies in the X, the last ally to assist also gains full kill gold and kill credit, and Pyke can instantly use Death from Below again for a short period of time.
