The League of Legends Zeri abilities are part of the latest champion to join the world's biggest MOBA game, with her recent reveal coming as the 2022 ranked season began. There are well over a hundred champions in League of Legends at this point, but the latest to be revealed goes by Zeri, also known as the Spark of Zaun. She's set to join the rest of the champions in the upcoming patch 12.2, but what will she add to the game exactly? For the rundown on all the League of Legends Zeri abilities, along with her role, read on.

League Of Legends Zeri: Who Is She?

We don't know a whole lot about Zeri's lore and backstory at the moment, though with Riot's emphasis on taking League of Legends into other forms of media recently, we wouldn't be surprised to see her in a spin-off game, TV show, or film. She does currently have a biography though, which explains some details on her history and personality.

Her biography reads: "A headstrong, spirited young women from Zaun's working-class, Zeri channels her electric magic to charge herself and her custom-crafted gun. Her volatile power mirrors her emotions, its sparks reflecting her lightning-fast approach to life. Deeply compassionate toward others, Zeri carries the love of her family and her home into every fight. Though her eagerness to help can sometimes backfire, Zeri believes one truth to be certain: stand up for your community, and it will stand up with you."

Zeri is an ADC (attack damage carry) character, meaning her main role in the team composition is to push the towers and build for the late-game, so she can deal high damage and carry team fights. Her abilities also run pretty standard for an ADC, allowing her to buff her attacks, engage or escape enemies, and even shield herself temporarily. All her abilities are explained below.

Passive - Living Battery

Zeri gains Move Speed whenever she receives a shield. When she damages an enemy shield she absorbs its energy, shielding herself. 

Q - Burst Fire

Passive: Zeri's basic attack deals magic damage, scales with AP, and is treated as an ability. Moving and casting Burst Fire stores up energy in Zeri's Sparkpack. When fully charged, her next basic attack will slow and deal bonus damage.

Active: Burst Fire shoots a burst of 7 rounds that deal physical damage to the first enemy hit.

Burst Fire scales with AD and is treated like an attack, with the first round applying on-hit effects. Its cooldown matches Zeri’s basic attack timer.

W - Ultrashock Laser 

Zeri fires an electric pulse that slows and damages the first enemy hit. If the pulse hits a wall it fires a long range laser from the point of impact.

E - Spark Surge

Zeri dashes a short distance and energizes her next 3 casts of Burst Fire, causing them to pierce through enemies. She will vault over or grind along any terrain she dashes into, depending on the angle. Hitting a champion with an attack or ability reduces Spark Surge’s cooldown.

R - Lightning Crash

Zeri discharges a nova of electricity, damaging nearby enemies, and overcharges herself for a moderate duration. While overcharged, Zeri gains increased damage, Attack Speed, and Move Speed. Attacking enemy champions refreshes the overcharge duration and adds another stack of Move Speed. While overcharged, Burst Fire's damage concentrates into a faster triple shot that chains lightning between enemies.

That's our rundown of the upcoming League of Legends champion, Zeri. You should now have an idea of her abilities and role in the team composition, meaning you'll be ready when patch 12.2 comes around.
