League of Legends released its newest champion last month. She is Samira, the Desert Rose, a melee-ranged Marksman that deals physical damage to her enemies.
Let’s check out Samira’s skill kit:
Passive – Daredevil Impulse
Upon chaining non-repeating abilities and basic attacks, Samira’s style grade increases by one letter from E to S rank. Each style grade will give her bonus movement speed. Samira can also damage enemies at range with her guns or with her swords in melee range. The latter deals bonus magic damage.
This passive skill also allows her to juggle enemies who are movement-impaired by her allies and suspended in the air.
Q – Flair
This skill enables Samira to fire a shot at her enemy’s directly when at a range with her guns. Enemies that are in melee range that will instead be damaged by a slash of her sword.
W – Blade Whirl
Samira slashes the area around her, using her sword. This damages enemy in the vicinity twice. It also destroys any enemy missiles in the area at the cast that enter the area after the fact.
E – Wild Rush
This ability enables Samira to dash through an enemy or ally, dealing magic damage to the enemies she passed through. Samira also gains bonus attack speed for a duration. Takedowns of enemy champions can reset Wild Rush’s cooldown.
R – Inferno Trigger
This is Samira’s ultimate ability, which will allow her to unleash a torrent of shots from her weapons. This wildly attacks enemies around her 10 times over a duration. Each shot then deals with physical damage, applies lifesteal, and can critically strike.
Take note, though, that you can only cast this ability if Samira’s current Style grade is at S.
