Kayle and Morgana rework: New ability kits revealed

Kayle gets some big changes and Morgana gets a buff to her ultimate

Riot Games

The Kayle and Morgana reworks are hitting the Public Beta Environment soon, which means we get to take a look at their new abilities!

The two sisters should hit the PBE this week and potentially release on live servers in patch 9.5.

As expected, Kayle is getting a shiny new kit, while Morgana’s is mostly staying the same outside of a small change. Kayle’s new passive has her changing forms, which explains the wings we saw in the original trailer.

Check out the full details below.

Kayle

Passive: Divine Ascent

Kayle ascen

ds through four forms before reaching her divine state.

Zealous (level 1): Kayle’s attacks grant stacking attack speed. At max stacks, Kayle becomes Exalted and gains movement speed towards enemies.

Aflame (level 6): When Kayle is Exalted, her attacks launch flaming waves dealing bonus magic damage.

Arisen (level 11): Kayle evolves into a fully ranged champion.

Transcendent (level 16): Kayle takes on her final form becoming permanently Exalted. Her flaming waves deal true damage.

Q: Radiant Blast

Kayle conjures a portal which shoots a flaming blade at an enemy, shredding armor and magic resist and slowing her target. This attack explodes to damage enemies next to the target as well.

W: Celestial Blessing

Kayle heals herself and a target ally, giving both a significant burst of movement speed.

E: Starfire Spellblade

Passive: Kayle’s basic attacks deal bonus damage which scales with both her ability power and attack damage.

Active: Kayle’s next basic attack is ranged and deals a portion of the target’s missing health as bonus magic damage. After ascending to Aflame, this attack damages enemies next to the target as well.

R: Divine Judgement

Kayle bestows invulnerability on herself or a target ally for a few seconds. While invulnerable, purifying swords fall in a circle around her target, damaging enemies in the area.

Morgana

Split between her mortal and Celestial self but wholly opposed to the unyielding ideology of her twin sister, the dark enchantress has been visually updated to match her divine origin. Morgana has bound her wings by choice, reflecting her connection to humanity and our shared suffering, but her ultimate reveals her birthright. In addition, the Fallen’s shadowy spells have new animations and visual vibrancy. Already a powerful pick in both mid and bot lane, Morgana’s abilities remain the same—save for her ultimate, which now grants movespeed towards enemies to ensure they can’t escape their share of torment.
