After much teasing through Champion Roadmaps and in-game references, League of Legends’ next new champion has finally been confirmed to be Samira. Along with that reveal, we’ve also gotten a first look at the champion’s abilities that capitalize on the style system referenced previously with Samira able to increase her power by pulling off more stylish combos. The ranks she achieves through the style system can go from “E” to “S,” and it’s only when she achieves max rank that she can unleash her ultimate ability.
Riot Games hasn’t officially unveiled Samira yet with the champion reveal pages that usually accompany these sorts of things, but [email protected] was able to datamine the champion’s assets including her abilities. A first look at Samira and a passage from her lore shows a battle-ready champion from Shurima who later turned to Noxus for more daring missions.
SkinSpotlights’ video below shows what the champion will look like in-game and how she’ll interact with other champions and situations when she encounters them. You can find Samira’s abilities detailed beneath that, but as [email protected] warned, the information isn’t able to be previewed in-game yet, so some things may be subject to change.
At a first glance, the champion has abilities reminiscent of Miss Fortune, Katarina, and even Yasuo with her ability to disable incoming missiles. It sounds like she has a lot packed into her kit, but it also looks like making the most of it will require mastering the style system which will likely take people a while when learning her.
Samira’s release date has not yet been confirmed. Expect Riot Games to have a full, official reveal soon.
