Surprise! League of Legends’ Newest Champion Revealed

Recently, Samira’s emote was teased in-game, which made players scramble to find out how to get the emote. Now, Samira is confirmed to be League of Legends’ newest champion, as revealed by Riot out of nowhere.

Otherwise known as the ‘Desert Rose,’ Samira is known as a “ruthless marksman” who can do both ranged and melee attacks. Awesome, right?

Samira has twin pistols as well as a huge sword, and we can see from the video that her moves mainly deal with dashing, whirling her blade around, as well as releasing a barrage of bullets at her enemies.

Samira is known to kill in style. In fact, she has a Style score which increases in rank as she attacks. Once she reaches the S Rank, she gets to unleash her most lethal ability. Also, Surrender @ 20 was able to data-mine more information about the newest champion a few days ago:

  • PASSIVE – DAREDEVIL IMPULSIVE
    Samira builds a combo by hitting Attacks or abilities unique from the previous hit. Each one increases her Style, from “E” to “S” grade (6 total). Samira gains X% Movement Speed per grade.

    Samira’s attacks in melee range deal an additional X magic damage, increased up to X based on the target’s missing Health.

    Samira’s Attacks against enemies affected by Immobilizing effects Knock Up for 0.5 seconds and deal damage over 6 separate attacks. Samira dashes into range against targets slightly outside her Attack range.

  • Q – FLAIR
    Samira fires a shot, dealing X physical damage to the first enemy hit. If this ability is cast towards an enemy in melee range, Samira will instead slash with her sword, dealing X physical damage.

    Either hit can critically strike for 25% bonus damage. If cast during Wild Rush, Samira will strike all enemies in her path upon completion.

  • W – BLADE WHIRL
    Samira slashes around her for 1 second, damaging enemies twice for X physical damage each and destroying any enemy missiles that enter the area.
  • E – WILD RUSH
    Samira dashes through an enemy or ally, slashing enemies she passes through and gaining Attack Speed. Killing an enemy champion refreshes this ability’s cooldown.
  • R – INFERNO TRIGGER
    Samira can only use this ability if her current Style rating is S. Samira unleashes a torrent of shots from her weapons, wildly shooting all enemies surrounding her 10 times over 2 seconds, each shot dealing X physical damage and applying lifesteal. Each shot can also critically strike.

This announcement definitely caught us by surprise, although we’re not shocked by the fact that Samira is the new champion. Still, we can’t wait to try her out and see where she fits in the rift.
