New Champions

Let's focus on the new champions that Riot has introduced into Legends of Runeterra. There are four of them. Three of these are four-cost cards with an Annie in the mix. Let's take a look at them and what decks you can expect them to be matched with!

Jhin

A big Champion in the game is Jhin - a four-cost 4/4 card (fitting right?) with Origin as a region. This means that they will definitely work with "Skills" cards.

Illaoi

Another four-cost champion enters the game. They will synergize well with the Spawn archetype because of its attack ability, Not to mention that they have a nifty little "Level-up" trait that will see this 1/6 card that can see Tentacles or deal 15 damage or more.

Bard

This four-cost champion is a relatively stat-balanced card with 2/5 to match. Its region is Origin and has the potential to work with Chimes that synergize with your run-of-the-mill Rush/Aggro or Midrange decks.

On top of that, their Level Up ability is activated when the total stats of allies in play or in your hand have increased by 20 or more altogether.

Annie

The Winterlands' prodigious mage is here in Legends of Runeterra! As a one-cost champion with, admittedly, a weak 0/2 for stats, she has the potential to have some serious impact in any game.

Possible decks for this card are, but not limited to, Rush aggro decks that try to pair with the new Jhin card as well as Midrange decks that seek to control the board.

Besides this, her Level Up ability will be activated upon you playing six or more Fast/Slow spells or skills.

The Path of Champions 2.0

The new expansion, Worldwalker, brings a significant update to The Path of Champions. Here are all the details:

  • Two new Regions will be introduced: Noxus & Demacia
  • There will be new Permanent Progression Systems. They are:
    • Legend Levels that power up your whole champion roster
    • Champion Star Levels that grant your champions unique abilities and unlock new legs of their personal adventure
    • Revamped & expanded champion levels to power up your favorite champs to extraordinary new heights
  • New unique champion adventures that will introduce a new dynamic to the game
