New League of Legends Champion revealed: Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess
Riot Games has revealed a new champion for League of Legends -- Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess.
Most champions arm themselves with swords or guns or magic or whatever, but Illaoi’s bringing a freakin’ god to the Rift. One of the new breed of juggernauts, she’s a slow but impactful solo laner in any game, with tentacles that offer huge zone control once they worm their way into a game.
And while she lacks traditional gap closers to start fights, she can pull the spirits from distant squishies and destroy them, rendering yet another vessel for Illaoi’s god, Nagakabouros.
Strong but relatively slow, Illaoi needs to be careful with her abilities, particularly during the early game. The tentacles she summons through Prophet of an Elder God pack a punch, but don’t move with Illaoi, making her much stronger when she’s able to hunker down in one spot
Once teams start gathering to contest neutral objectives, Illaoi takes up her rightful place at the forefront of her team’s formation.
As teams fully group, Illaoi works best securing her team’s frontline and waiting for the perfect Test of Spirit cast. Once she’s landed the ability and her team’s destroyed the captured spirit, Illaoi’s all set to force her way through to the enemy backline.
