Riot reveals new League of Legends Champion: Lillia, the Bashful Bloom

Riot reveals new League of Legends Champion: Lillia, the Bashful Bloom
11

Lore, artwork, abilities, and making of — all you need to know about the 149th champion to join League of Legends is in this article!

Over the past weeks, several leaks suggested the arrival of a new champion in League of Legends. First, voice-overs were datamined from the PBE client, then an artwork appeared, revealing a magical fawn apparently called Lillia.

Also on the PBE, a token appeared in the shop, mentioning in its description that something would happen on July 22. Conveniently enough, this date matches the planned release of Patch 10.15.

Who's Lilia? What's her gameplay? What are her spells? All the answers to these questions are just below.

Who's Lillia?

"Imagine knowing everyone’s dreams—how they see the world, themselves, and others.

Now imagine that your mom’s a tree, her best friend is Ivern, and you’ve spent your whole life alone in a magical forest. Your only glimpses of the outside world are through the dreams of outsiders that keep your tree-mom alive.

Then one day the dreams stop coming. Your tree-mom gets sick and the outsiders appear in your forest. You panic, sleep them, and then bam! The dreams are back. Your tree-mom feels better and, what’s more, you can harvest their dreams to feed mommy dearest.

So what’s a good deer-daughter to do? (Oh yeah, you’re a deer by the way—don’t ask.) You prance off into the world to put people to sleep and harvest their dreams.

That’s basically Lillia. Except... not quite. There’s more to her than just that.

She’s shy, clumsy, and self-conscious. She’s selfless and wants to help, but fears getting close to those who need it. Lillia is a rare flower who needed careful tending throughout her development. And when it was over she had blossomed into something we didn’t quite expect: the bravest champion we’ve made, who has an unbreakable bond with dreams."

Abilities

Passive - Dream-Laden Bough

Lillia's abilities apply Dream Dust, dealing a portion of the target's maximum health as magic damage over a duration.

Q - Blooming Blows

Lillia swings her branch in the air and deals magic damage to nearby enemies, dealing true damage to those at the outer edge of the circle. When she successfully lands the attack, Lillia also gets movement speed.

W - Watch Out! Eep!

Lillia winds up for a huge strike with her branch, dealing magic damage to enemies. Enemies at the center of the impact receive more damage.

E - Swirlseed

Lillia lobs a Swirlseed overhead, dealing magic damage to enemies and slowing them for a duration. If Lillia's Swirlseed misses, it'll continue to roll until it hits an enemy or collides with terrain.

R - Lilting Lullaby

Lillia casts a lullaby over her enemies and those affected by her Dream Dust become increasingly slowed before falling asleep for a duration of time. When awakened by damage, enemies will take additional magic damage.

What do you think of this new champion? Do you feel she will fit nicely in the current League meta? Feel free to drop your opinion in the comment section below!

Lillia to be released with Patch 10.15?

After Sett in mid-January, Riot Games focused on reworking Fiddlesticks and Volibear, but the next champion to join League of Legends has apparently leaked...

Honnêtement, en tant que main jungler qui attendait vraiment un nouveau champ (notamment été hypé par le leak de Par'Zxi), je sais vraiment pas quoi en penser, c'est un jungler qui est censé scale et etre un escarmoucheur mais je vois ici beaucoup de problèmes :<br /> <br /> c'est un jungler donc elle doit avoir un kit qui marche bien dedans, cependant je vois pas de lifesteal ni de réel dash et moyen de gank, donc ça va etre un jungler a scale a la karthus udyr ou shyvana, mais tout en etant un escarmoucheur (d'apres riot bien entendu) avec des choses en moins par rapport aux autres escarmoucheurs, je pense pas quelle va rentrer dans la méta meme apres plusieurs buffs

It seems like she will be a short ranged AP assassin. AoE dream in a team fight!

They said she was going to have a complex kit that would take time to master but she seems fairly standard.

If her ult can put them to sleep, can Zoe q them for high damage or nah

Is she melee ? Her abilities seem to indicate that she's melee . But she doesn't have movement abilities or hard cc except her ult ( which is not reliable) , only damage . Champions that fit that description are juggernauts ... Is she a juggernaut like garen ? Is she tanky ?
