Akshan has arrived at League of Legends2021-07-22 22:30:00
On Thursday, July 22, Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel, finally arrived at League of Legends alongside the 11.15 patch. Akshan is a range AD hero who will specialize in solo lanes and, as many heroes released during past years, can be invisible and extremely mobile.
Passive — Dirty Fighting
Every three hits from Akshan’s attacks and damaging abilities deal a burst of physical damage. If the target was a champion, Akshan also gains a shield.
After attacking, Akshan fires a second attack that deals reduced physical damage. The second shot can be canceled like a regular basic attack. If Akshan cancels the second shot he gains a burst of move speed.
Q — Avengerang
Akshan throws a boomerang that deals physical damage and reveals enemies hit, extending its range each time it hits an enemy. Enemies can be hit once as the boomerang goes out and once as it returns.
W — Going Rogue
Passive: When enemy champions kill one of Akshan’s allies, they are marked as Scoundrels. When Akshan gets a takedown on a Scoundrel he gains bonus gold, all allies killed by the Scoundrel are resurrected at their base, and Scoundrel status is removed from all other enemies.
Active: Akshan becomes camouflaged for a short duration, or indefinitely while near terrain. During this time, Akshan can see trails leading toward Scoundrels and gains movement speed and mana regeneration while moving toward them.
E — Heroic Swing
Akshan fires a hook shot that embeds in the first terrain hit. While embedded, he can recast to swing around the terrain in the cast direction, firing physical damage bullets at the nearest enemy while swinging. While swinging, he can recast again to jump off in the direction of the cursor and fire a final shot.
Heroic Swing's cooldown resets when Akshan earns a takedown on an enemy champion.
R — Comeuppance
Akshan locks onto an enemy champion and begins channeling power into his gun to store bullets. At the end of the duration or after recasting Akshan unleashes the stored bullets, each dealing physical damage based on missing health to the first minion, champion, or structure hit.
Akshan can move normally and cast Heroic Swing while channeling and firing Comeuppance.
Each two months Riot Games adds a new champion to the game. The last time it was Gwen, The Hallowed Seamstress, melee AP fighter. It is still unknown who will be the next champion that can be released in the end of September.
