New League Of Legends Champion Rell

The creative minds at Riot Games are always churning out new and exciting champions for us to figure out add to our roster of champions. Let’s take at the new League of Legends champion Rell, the Iron Maiden.

Be Strong. Be Ruthless. Be Cold as Iron. – Rell

Rell’s Kit

Passive – Break the Mold

Rell attacks very slowly but temporarily steals a portion of her target’s Armor and Magic Resist to deal bonus damage based on the amount stolen. Additionally, Rell can siphon resistances from multiple different foes to grow extremely tanky.

It seems like Rell will play the role of a super tanky support. Her passive allows her to steal armor from enemy champions. Ruthless. Although her attacks will be slow, they will get stronger the longer the fight goes.

Q – Shattering Strike

Rell stabs forward with her lance, breaking any shields and damaging all enemies hit (damage decreases after the first target). If Rell has an ally bound with E – Attract and Repel, she and that ally recover health for each champion hit by this ability.

Rell’s Q is pretty unique ability. The fact that she can use it to break shields will provide a lot of counter-play to traditional shield-heavy supports. Her Q also has the ability to heal if her E is bound to an ally. Wow…a shield breaker, damage dealer, and heal all in one ability? Looks pretty good to me.

W – Ferromancy: Crash Down

Can only cast while mounted) Rell leaps into the sky and transforms her mount into heavy armor, gaining a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or remounting. Upon landing, she knocks up all enemies around her. Rell can cast E – Attract and Repel and R – Magnet Storm during the transformation.

Rell has increased durability, low movement speed, and a movement speed cap while in armored form. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Mount Up.

W2 – Ferromancy: Mount Up

(Can only cast while in armored form) Rell rushes forward and transforms her armor into a mount, gaining a burst of movement speed. During her next attack, she charges her target to deal bonus damage and flip them over her shoulder.

Rell has increased movement speed while mounted. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Crash Down.

Interesting. Rell has two different Ws. She’s able to cast her ult and E during her transformation. I could see this being a great initiation tool that will set up some sick plays.

E – Attract and Repel

Rell magnetically binds a piece of her armor to a target allied champion, granting them bonus Armor and Magic Resist while nearby.

Rell can recast this spell to break the bind and stun all enemies around and between her and her bound ally.

This ability reminds me of Pyke’s stun. Rell’s E has the potential to land a 5-man stun. Condersing that’s not an ult, that’s really stong. Knowing that is also makes the binded ally tankier too is a massive plus.

R – Magnet Storm

Rell erupts in magnetic fury, yanking nearby enemies toward her. She then creates a gravitational field around her, pulling nearby enemies in for a few seconds. The field doesn’t interrupt her enemies’ other actions.

Wow. An AoE Skarner ult without the surpress is rediciously cool. I can already see the Yasuo’s ulting off her ult already. Can’t wait.

Rell is going to be a tanky, initiator that will be a centerpiece of outplays. Let’s see how different summoners can utilize her kit. Are you excited to play the new League of Legends champion? Let us know in the comments below.
