Riot Games are still adding champions to League of Legends: Wild Rift in batches and the latest trio ready to join the roster hails from mount Targon.

Mount Targon is one of the sacred places in League of Legends lore where mortals can often end up as vessels for various cosmic beings. For example, Pantheon's body was inhabited by the Aspect of War before that being met its and at the hands of Aatrox but the man himself survived.

Pantheon is indeed one of the champions set to make an entrance with the upcoming Wild Rift update. While not entangled into the Lunari and Solari conflict directly, he will be joined by two champions who are - Diana and Leona.

The trio effectively covers all League of Legends roles except for AD carry since Pantheon and Diana are both proficient in solo lanes as well as the jungle. 

On top of that, Pantheon can sometimes be used as support, where he will share the role with Leona, although it remains to be seen how good he will be there as he was already nerfed out of "supporting" champions in regular League of Legends.

The reason that word is in quotation marks is that Pantheon supports often just took kills for themselves and tried to carry the game that way while Leona still embraces the traditional role the supports have - spoon feeding kills to the AD carry.

That said, she is one of the most aggressive supports and should pose quite the headache for opposing Blitzcranks who have been enjoying the lane without Morgana to counter them.
