League of Legends has announced a new playable champion, a barnacle monster named Illaoi (pronounced “ill-OW-ee”), and she is going to be your new favourite League of Legends champion before you know it.
Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess, was stealthily introduced by Riot last week when the company published part three of its text story “Shadow and Fortune”, an ongoing lore even that killed off the pirate champion Gangplank (temporarily). Illaoi and Gangplank were once in love, according to League of Legends lore, but do not mistake her lovey-dovey backstory for a softie. Illaoi automatically spawns tentacles on nearby walls, making her a handful in the Rift.
Watch Illaoi summon her spectral spirit tentacles to attack her enemies. It is so hardcore that she even yanks an enemy champion’s soul out of their body.
To find out more about the Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess, i.e. all her abilities, her laning, her team fighting and which League of Legends champions she works well with, visit her champion reveal page.
Once you’ve done that, enjoy beating on your opponents’ bodies and souls with spirit tentacles. I know I will.
