League's next champion Nilah abilities leak shows attack blocking mist and opponent locking arena Rumors2022-06-15 07:18:00
Insider Big Bad Bear revealed League of Legends next champion Nilah's abilities. He released her full kit details and provided the video containing a basic visual explanation.
As mentioned before, Nilah's abilities are water-based. She can use a mist to stop all auto-attacks and has tethering and locking down abilities to keep opponents in place.
Bot lane skirmisher Range: 400
Passive: Iridescent Inertia
Nilah's base attack speed scaling is very low (.3), but it increases on hit up to 6 stacks. Excess attack speed above the cap is converted into additional on-hit damage.
Q: Nacre Slash
Nilah dashes a short distance in the target direction before empowering her next attack to strike twice and damage nearby enemies in a wide arc shape centered on her target. The second strike instead marks all enemies hit and then damages them after a brief delay. The second strike's damage increases based on the number of enemy champions marked.
Passive: Upon casting an ability, Nilah's next three attacks deal bonus damage. The third attack's bonus damage is doubled, and refunds 50% of her Q ability cooldown.
W: Tide Bauble
Nilah throws a water orb in the target direction. Upon hitting an enemy or terrain, it detonates, damaging and slowing enemies and creating a cloud of slowing mist that extends around all enemies and terrain hit by the initial explosion. It lasts up to 10 seconds but dissipates 4 seconds after the first allied champion enters its bounds. Enemies are unable to auto-attack champions inside the mist.
E: Reluctant Friendship
Nilah extends her whip in the target direction, tethering herself to the first enemy hit for up to 4 seconds. Tether breaks upon going further than 1000 units.
Recast 1: Nilah commands her whip to extend out from the tethered enemy's position in the target direction. If it hits another enemy or piece of terrain, a second tether is formed between the two targets, granting Nilah a second recast.
Recast 2: Tap-cast to pull the tethered targets into each other, damaging and slowing all enemies they pass through. If both enemies are champions, they are also stunned on collision. Hold-cast also causes Nilah to pull herself to the first tethered enemy.
R: Promise of the Ocean
Nilah channels, creating a circular-shaped elastic arena in the target area, lasting 7 seconds, or until she exits its bounds. Nilah can attack anything inside the arena regardless of range. Enemies that attempt to exit the arena will be pushed back inside (this can only happen once to each enemy). The arena's walls act as terrain for the purposes of her W and E abilities. As long as Nilah remains inside the arena, she gains bonus movement speed and ignores unit collision.
The champion release date remains unknown. This leak confirms previous rumors about the heroine. For example, the mist ability was mentioned in the description of the very first character preview. You can read the details following the link below.
