Patch Preview and Patch Notes for + Leona's Abilities

Posted on at 1:23 AM by Moobeat
EDIT: As mentioned in this post, Leona will NOT be available when the servers come back up. Riot is going to test the waters for error before unlocking her. If the servers experience minimal issues, she will then be made available for play.

Three posts in one. What a deal! Every few minutes new information was rolling out about so I decided to curl it all up into one cozy little ball.

You can also check out the official unveiling of Leona's abilities HERE in her "A New Champion Approaches". As we've seen video and gameplay of her over the past few days, I'll TLDR this down for you into ger abilities only.

(Q) Shield of Daybreak – Leona charges her shield with the power of the sun causing her next melee attack to deal additional damage and briefly stun the target. 

(W) Eclipse – Leona raises her shield granting her additional Armor and Magic Resistance for 3 seconds. When the effect ends she deals area of effect damage and increases the duration of the defensive bonuses by 3 seconds if she damages an enemy. 

(E) Zenith Blade – Leona throws a blade of sunlight that deals damage to all enemies in a line. Leona teleports to the last enemy champion hit by this attack. 

(R) Solar Flare – After a brief delay, Leona calls down a beam of solar energy dealing damage and slowing enemies. Enemies in the center of the beam are stunned instead of slowed. 

Sunlight (Passive) – Leona’s abilities mark the target with sunlight. Allied champions that damage marked targets deal additional damage and consume the mark.

(( I also wanted to let you guys now I will be out of town for a few days; I might be able to sneak some time into updating the blog before I actually leave, but most likely you won't see anything until next Thursday ( 7-14 ) when I return from the sunny shores of Florida. So, suck it and please accept my apologies for the sloppy post. ))
