LoL: New champion Qiyana, season 9, abilities, info, lore, skins & role

Yuumi has just been released, and the 145th League of Legends champion is already revealed! Discover Qiyana, Empress of the Elements.

We didn't expect her that soon, but she's here all the same. After Yuumi release, 3 weeks ago, Riot Games have just announced an upcoming League of Legends champion: Qiyana, Empress of the Elements.

Qiyana pulls out her strength to cast powerful spells. As an AD assassin with mobility, she reigns all over the map and brings her team to victory. She will be available with patch 9.13.

Upon gathering an Element, Edge of Ixtal is upgraded to Elemental Wrath and its cooldown is reset.

• Elemental Wrath (Active):
Qiyana consumes her current Element and hurls her blade out instead, which detonates in a line upon colliding with an enemy or reaching maximum range, dealing 128 / 160 / 192 / 224 / 256 (+ 144% bonus AD) physical damage to all units hit and applying a bonus effect based on the consumed Element.

Casting Edge of Ixtal during Audacity will aim at the dash target.
