Daredevil Impulse (P)
Samira builds a combo by hitting Attacks or abilities unique from the previous hit. Each one increases her Style, from "E" to "S" grade (6 total). Samira gains X% Movement Speed per grade. 
Samira's attacks in melee range deal an additional X magic damage, increased up to X based on the target's missing Health. 
Samira's Attacks against enemies affected by Immobilizing effects Knock Up for 0.5 seconds and deal damage over 6 separate attacks. Samira dashes into range against targets slightly outside her Attack range.

Flair (Q)
Samira fires a shot, dealing X physical damage to the first enemy hit. 
If this ability is cast towards an enemy in melee range, Samira will instead slash with her sword, dealing X physical damage. 
Either hit can critically strike for 25% bonus damage. 
If cast during Wild Rush, Samira will strike all enemies in her path upon completion.

Blade Whirl (W)
Samira slashes around her for 1 second, damaging enemies twice for X physical damage each and destroying any enemy missiles that enter the area.

Wild Rush (E)
Samira dashes through an enemy or ally, slashing enemies she passes through and gaining Attack Speed. Killing an enemy champion refreshes this ability's cooldown.

Inferno Trigger (R)
Samira can only use this ability if her current Style rating is S. 
Samira unleashes a torrent of shots from her weapons, wildly shooting all enemies surrounding her 10 times over 2 seconds, each shot dealing X physical damage and applying lifesteal. Each shot can also critically strike.


Here's Samira's in-client bio:
"Samira stares death in the eye with unyielding confidence, seeking thrill wherever she goes. After her Shuriman home was destroyed as a child, Samira found her true calling in Noxus, where she built a reputation as a stylish daredevil taking on dangerous missions of the highest caliber. Wielding black-powder pistols and a custom-engineered blade, Samira thrives in life-or-death circumstances, eliminating any who stand in her way with flash and flair."


Here's Samira's full voiceover:

Release Skin

Samira's release skin is PsyOps Samira!

PsyOps Samira

New Skins

Six new skins are now dataminable on the PBE.

[Note: The previews below are a bit rough due to the nature of the assets & some names missing.]

Championship LeBlanc

PsyOps Kayle

A self-described “savior” and powerful psionic swordswoman, Kayle views herself as an impartial judge in world affairs, appearing on wings powered by psychic energy as an angel of war. Her understanding of the world is black and white to a frightening extreme, and she has joined the paramilitary BRG to see her twisted vision realized.
[Wings weren't cooperating in our model viewer!]

PsyOps Pyke 

[Our model viewer did not like Pyke. Sorry.]

? Viktor

[Our model viewer did not like Viktor. Sorry.]

? Zed

? Yasuo

[This skin has branding from AAPE.JP!]
[Perhaps related to the upcoming Yasuo prestige that was announced earlier this year]


Three new Little Legend themed emotes were datamined:


Ward Skin

A new ward skin was also datamined!

Championship 2020 Ward

Teamfight Tactics: Fates

Files for TFT: Fates were pushed to the PBE! While most of this info will be hard to put together in a cohesive way due to the way the patch was pushed, we do at least have a look at new Little Legends coming soon!

Context & Notes

1) On the topic of the new Championship skin for LeBlanc seen above and her varying a bit from the other championship skins, Bellissimoh popped on to /r/leagueoflegends to note:
"Over the years we’ve seen some amount of fatigue for our traditional championship skins. This year we wanted to try a new approach that leans a bit more into the creative direction of Worlds itself for 2020."
