Yuumi - what we know, what to expect
postet by Admin | 2019-04-27 | League of Legends

The new champion to grace the Summoner’s Rift, Yuumi, was teased on the 25th of April, in a teaser released by Riot. The video showed the Book of Thresholds, which already showed a major element in the Champion’s lore and playstyle. Not much was to be expected regarding the Champion itself, as the teaser itself didn’t provide the Summoners with a whole lot of information about the upcoming Yordle.

The second video, released just the day after on the 26th, finishes the picture. In the trailer, we get to meet Yuumi: The Magical Cat. Although the teaser already confirmed the book’s integral part in the Champion, a whole lot more was left to be discovered.

Yuumi is a Yordle support, joining the Yordle-ranks of Lulu, Poppy and Tristana, among others. In order to understand how Yuumi works, however, I would argue that watching the Champion trailer (which you’ll find above) will tell you a whole lot more than me talking about it.

The kit, as it’s been revealed by Riot, is as follows:

Passive – Bop ‘n’ Block

“Every so often, Yuumi’s next attack against an opponent restores mana and grants her a shield. If Yuumi is Attached, the shield protects her ally. The shield protects Yuumi or her ally until it’s broken.”

Q – Prowling Projectile

”Yuumi fires a missile that deals magic damage to the first enemy hit. If the missile is in flight long enough, it deals bonus damage and slows enemies.

While Attached, Yuumi fires a missile from her ally’s position and can direct the missile’s flight path with her mouse.”

W – You and Me!

”Passive: While Attached, Yuumi and her ally gain a percent of each other’s AD or AP converted to Adaptive Force.

Active: Yuumi starts with a point in her W. She dashes to an ally champion and attaches to them. While Attached, she follows her partner’s movement and is untargetable by everything except tower damage. Yuumi’s abilities fire from her ally’s location, and she can’t attack enemies. She can Unattach after a cooldown or Attach to another teammate with no cooldown.”

E – Zoomies

”Yuumi heals and gains a burst of movement speed. If Attached, her ally is targeted by the spell instead. This spell has two charges.”

R – Final Chapter

”Yuumi opens Book, launching waves of magic damage that root enemies after multiple hits. While using her ult, Yuumi can move, attach to ally champions, and heal.”

I, for one am thrilled to see a new support coming into the game, and I will be sure to patch my game quickly as soon as she is released on the 14th of May! What are your thoughts on Yuumi?
