Riot Revealed Reworked Kit of Aatrox
Aatrox, a champion first released in 2013, got a full rework of his visuals as well as his kit. Recently Riot Games revealed the description of all reworked abilities. Currently the updated version of the champion is not available on either live or test server.
Aatrox, The Darkin Blade
A fallen god-warrior who once threatened to destroy Runeterra, Aatrox and his kin were bound to ancient weapons and imprisoned for centuries. That age is over. Now, with stolen flesh warped in brutal approximation of his previous form, the Darkin Blade seeks an apocalyptic and long overdue vengeance: Total obliteration.
PASSIVE: DEATHBRINGER STANCE
Aatrox’s next basic attack has increased range and deals a percentage of the target’s maximum health as damage. This attack also significantly reduces all healing and shielding on the target for a few seconds.
Deathbringer Stance’s cooldown is slightly reduced whenever Aatrox casts a spell or when he lands the edge of The Darkin Blade on a champion.
Q: THE DARKIN BLADE
Aatrox swings his greatsword up to three times. Each cast increases in damage, impacts a unique area of effect, and can hit with the edge of the blade (a second, smaller hitbox).
Edge of the blade: Hitting enemies at the far end of the first two casts and the center of the third briefly knocks them up and deals significantly more damage.
W: INFERNAL CHAINS
Aatrox smashes the ground, damaging the first enemy hit and briefly slowing them. If it’s a champion or large monster, they are chained to the impact area.
If the chained enemy is still in the impact area after a few seconds, they are dragged to the center and take damage again.
E: UMBRAL DASH
Passive: Aatrox heals for a portion of the damage he deals.
Active: Aatrox dashes, increasing his attack damage for a few seconds. Umbral Dash can store up to 2 charges and can be used simultaneously with The Darkin Blade.
R: WORLD ENDER
Aatrox unleashes his full might, becoming monstrous in size and taking flight on massive wings. As he transforms, Aatrox fears nearby minions and briefly increases his movement speed (this bonus is reactivated when out of combat).
While transformed, Aatrox increases his overall damage and gains a Blood Well that stores health over World Ender’s duration, reviving him if he takes lethal damage while in his true form.
Earlier Riot Games added a new champion to League of Legends – Pyke, The Bloodharbor Ribber.
