The official League of Legends website has finally revealed the new champion, Viego - The Ruined King, along with her interesting abilities. The champion is expected to join the live servers on patch 11.2.

After months of back and forth speculations and various theories, Riot Games have finally revealed  the identity and the abilities of their new League of Legends champion - Viego, The Ruined King. 

Most of his abilities rely on good positioning in order to deal extra damage.  His will surely be a game-changer as it is something we haven't really seen before on the Rift. All the jungle mains will be more than happy to add Lillia to their repertoire considering that her kit seems pretty stacked for a jungler.

Passive - Sovereign’s Domination  (video)

Viego can temporarily possess enemy champions he helps kill, healing for a portion of their max health. During possession, Viego's items, attacks, and non-ultimate abilities become those of his slain enemies, and he gains a free cast of his own ultimate, Heartbreaker. While possessing an enemy, Viego also gets bonus movement speed when moving toward enemy champions.

Passive: Viego’s attacks deal a percent of the target's current health as bonus damage on-hit. When Viego attacks an enemy he recently hit with an ability, the attack strikes twice. The second strike siphons health from the target instead of dealing regular damage, but still applies on-hit effects and can critically strike. This passive is maintained during possession. Active: Viego stabs forward with his blade, damaging all enemies hit.

Viego charges up and then dashes forward, hurling a blast of mist that stuns and damages the first enemy hit. Stun duration and mist range increase with charge time, damage and dash range don't.

Viego spreads a wave of Black Mist around a nearby wall. While in the mist, Viego becomes Camouflaged and gains Attack Speed and Movement Speed.

Heartbreaker - R  (video)

Viego discards any bodies he is currently possessing and teleports forward, attacking the enemy champion in range with the lowest percent health and dealing bonus damage based on their missing health. Other enemies in range are knocked away.

For all of you who can't wait to get your hands on this new champion, Viego will officially join the live servers on patch 11.2 which is scheduled two weeks from now.
