The Fire Below the Mountain is coming to Legends of Runeterra! Ornn has been revealed as the final champion that will be added in the new Darkin Saga: Awakening expansion that will be available in the game on August 31, 2022. He joins four other champions such as Kayn, Master Yi, Norra, and Jax.


Ornn is an incredibly tanky and versatile champion in League of Legends. Can he live up to that reputation in Legends of Runeterra? Let's find out by looking at his card and other support cards.

Ornn unfortunately isn't as tanky by way of stats as we would've liked for him to be in Legends of Runeterra. However, he compensates for that by having the Tough keyword. On top of that, he's a versatile deck pick as he can utilize the new Forge keyword twice when he attacks. Ornn will also be able to equip a copy of an ally's equipment when he's played. If you didn't know who the Grandmaster at Arms is, you'd be thinking it was Ornn and not Jax.

Regardless, let's take a closer look at Ornn and other cards in detail:

As with other champions that have been revealed for the Darkin Saga: Awakening expansion, Ornn will not be coming to the game alone. A couple of other cards have been unveiled as potential synergy picks for Ornn-themed decks.
