League of Legends, the popular MOBA game for Microsoft Windows gaming PC and laptop, has finally revealed its first new champion of 2018. Kai’Sa was announced by Riot through its blog, Surrenderat20.net.
Although no lore has been released yet, a short description from Riot reveals that Kai’Sa became one with the Void to survive among the predators. She was stranded in the Void and through sheer will has managed to survive. Later on, she developed a symbiotic second skin adapted from a living Void creature. This allows her to become an apex hunter, earning the title the Daughter of the Void.
Let’s check her capabilities:
Passive: Second Skin
Second Skin has two passive buffs: Caustic Wounds and Living Weapon.
Caustic Wounds allows Kai’Sa’s basic attacks to mark enemies with Plasma, which deals increasing bonus magic damage. After a few successive attacks, the Plasma will then rupture for a burst of damage based on the target’s missing health.
Nearby allies’ immobilizing effects will add stacks of Plasma.
Living Weapon allows Kaisa’s symbiote-suit to adapt to her chosen attack style, evolving her abilities based on the permanent stats gained from items and experience level.
Q: Icathian Rain
Icathian Rain enables Kai’Sa to release a swarm of missiles evenly distributed among nearby enemies. This skill comes with additional hits on the same target dealing slightly reduced damage. Nearby allies’ immobilizing effects will also add stacks of Plasma.
Living Weapon: With enough bonus Attack Damage, Icathian Rain will fire more missiles.
W: Void Seeker
Void Seeker upon activation will cause Kai’Sa to fire off a beam of Void energy. This reveals the first enemy hit which then deals magic damage and applying stacks of Plasma.
Living Weapon: With enough bonus Ability Power, Void Seeker will deal more damage and partially refunds the cooldown on champion hit.
Supercharger allows Kai’Sa to charge up, briefly increasing her movement speed. However, upon doing so, she will also lose the ability to attack. After charging up, Kai’Sa then whips out the big guns to increase her attack speed for a few seconds.
Dealing basic attacks will reduce this skill’s cooldown.
Living Weapon: With enough bonus Attack Speed, Supercharger will briefly grant Kai’Sa true invisibility while charging up.
R: Killer Instinct
Killer Instinct is Kai’Sa ultimate skill. It allows her to dash at extremely high speed to a long-range location near an enemy champion that was marked by Plasma. Upon arriving at her location, she briefly gains a damage-absorbing shield to protect herself from incoming attacks.
