LOL’s newest character is the horseback rider Rell. Rell’s kit makes her a tanky support, giving her magic armor that she can turn into a horse, and grant an ally bonus armor and magic resist.
As a preseason surprise, Riot has revealed the latest League of Legends champion: Rell. Rells announcement arrived early on Monday morning, with just a tweet revealing her to the world. Thankfully, Riot also put out Rells ability kit so we know exactly what shes going to do.
Based on her kit, it seems that Rell is intended to be a very tanky support character. She has a magical suit of heavy armor which can turn into her trusty steed and a giant magical lance that will steal the armor and magic resist from whoever shes attacking. Rell can also attach some of her magical armor to a teammate, giving them bonus armor and magic resist while shes nearby. Meanwhile, her Ultimate ability can pull her enemies into her, trapping them in a gravitational field.
Since Rell was just revealed, its likely that shell go onto the League of Legends Public Beta Environment later this week, to get some testing in before shes released in patch 10.25 a couple of weeks from now. But ahead of her release on live servers or the PBE, heres Rells entire kit:
Passive Break the Mold
Rell attacks very slowly, but temporarily steals a portion of her targets 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.
