Meet League Of Legends' New Champion - A Happiness-Hating Emo

Riot Games

Ahh, the early 2000s. A time when the main means of communication was via MSN, and the PlayStation 2 reigned supreme. For those of you who remember this time, it was glorious. Then, around 2004, emo kicked its way through the door with thick, black eyeliner and pink highlights in its impossibly-high backcombed hair.

Well it looks like Riot Games is bringing emo back in style, as the new League of Legends champion, Vex, couldn't be more emo if she sang The Black Parade at the top of her lungs while wearing a t-shirt that says: 'Normal People Scare Me' (this was genuinely a thing 15 years ago, believe me). 

But who is she? And when's she coming to the game?

Who Is The New League Of Legends Champion, Vex?

We've known about Vex for a while, but this confirmation of not only who she is, but what her abilities are, is brand-new information.

In terms of backstory, she is the first Yordle since 2016, and is moody, glum, and is described as someone who 'hates sunshine, happiness, and champions who dash all over Summoner's Rift'. Charming!

What Abilities Does The New League Of Legends Champion, Vex, Have?

Riot Games has released all of her abilities, and there's quite a few. 

Passive - Doom ‘n Gloom
Doom - Periodically, Vex becomes empowered by Doom, causing her next basic ability to interrupt dashes and Fear enemies.

Gloom - Whenever a nearby enemy dashes or blinks, they become marked with Gloom. Vex’s next basic attack against a marked enemy detonates the mark, dealing bonus damage and refunding part of Doom's cooldown.

Q - Mistral Bolt
Vex launches a wave forward, dealing magic damage to enemies it passes through. After a short delay, the wave accelerates but has reduced width. Mistral Bolt detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.

W - Personal Space
Vex gains a shield and emits a shockwave, dealing magic damage to enemies around her. Personal Space detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.

E - Looming Darkness
Shadow flies to a location, increasing in size as it travels. On arriving, Shadow deals magic damage, slows, and marks enemies hit with Gloom.

R - Shadow Surge
Shadow flies forward, marking and dealing magic damage to the first enemy champion hit. Vex can then recast this ability to have Shadow pull her to the marked target, dealing additional magic damage.

If the marked target dies within a short time of taking damage from Shadow Surge, Vex can cast Shadow Surge again within a few seconds.

Vex will launch alongside her Dawnbringer Vex skin on September 23 during patch 11.19.
