Here are her icons spread out, including extra icons for Q and E double activation:

Adaptive Defenses (Passive):
Basic attacks on champions grant a shield equal to X% (20% of Camille's maximum health) against their damage type (Physical or Magic) for X seconds.
This effect has a [20/15/10 at 1/7/13] second cooldown. 
  • Jag on how passive shield works - "Camille essentially understands every champion's PvP premitigation damage (before resistances) that they've done throughout the entire game, and also understands her own resistances. She combines this information to determine the best shield she should get."
  • Camille's chest & back glow when her passive is up as well as a bright flash when comes off cooldown. 

Precision Protocol (Q):
Cost: 25 mana
Cooldown: 9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6
Camille's next basic attack deals [20/25/30/35/40% total AD] bonus physical damage and increases her movement speed by 20/25/30/35/40 for 1 second. This ability can be recast in the next 3 seconds at no cost. 
If the second Precision Protocol attack hits at least 1.5 seconds after the first, the bonus damage is increased by 100% to x and [55% - 100% based on level] of the attack is converted into true damage.
Precision Protocol cannot critically strike. 
  •  Scaling on true damage % is - 55/58/61/64/67/70/73/76/79/82/85/88/91/94/97/100.

Tactical Sweep (W):
Cost: 50/55/60/65/70 mana
Cooldown:  15/13.5/12/10.5/9
Camille winds up and then slices in a direction, dealing 65/95/125/155/185 (+ 60% bonus AD)  physical damage to enemies hit.
Enemies hit by the outer half are slowed by 90%, decaying over 2 seconds. They take extra physical damage equal to 6/6.5/7/7.5/8% (+3% per 100 bonus AD ) of their maximum health, healing Camille for 100% of the damage dealt (healing capped at [10% max health] from non-champions). 
Tactical Sweep does 50% less damage to non-epic monsters.
  • NOTE: Camille can move while winding up W. 

Hookshot (E):
Cost: 50 mana.
Cooldown: 16/14.5/13/11.5/10
First Cast: Fire a hookshot that attaches to terrain, pulling Camille to it and allowing Hookshot to be recast for 1 second. 
Second Cast: Camille leaps from the wall, colliding with the first enemy champion hit. Upon landing, she deals 70/115/160/205/250 (+75% bonus AD) physical damage and a 1 second stun to nearby enemies. Dashes towards enemy champions travel twice as far and grant 40/50/60/70/80% attack speed for 5 seconds.

Hextech Ultimatum (R):
Cost: 100 mana

Cooldown: 140/115/90

Camille briefly becomes untargetable and leaps onto an enemy champion, locking them into an area they cannot escape by any means for 4 seconds. Other nearby enemies are knocked away. Her basic attacks against the trapped enemy deal bonus magic damage equal to 5/10/15 plus 4/6/8% of their current health.
The Hextech Ultimatum ends if Camille leaves the area.

Here's a brief preview of her abilities in action:


Here's Camille's voiceover, clocking in at about 15 minutes with numerous champion interactions!

And here are Camille's special interactions:

Camille's English champion select quote was also added:

"Precision is the difference between a butcher and a surgeon."

Non-English VO:



Here is Camille's short form lore entry from the client:
"Weaponized to execute outside the boundaries of the law, Camille Medarda is an elegant and elite operative who ensures the commerce of the Piltover machine with its Zaunite underbelly runs smoothly. Raised among manners and money, she is the Principal Intelligencer of House Medarda, and runs down the family's darker problems with surgical precision. Others in Piltover may carry hex-tech, but Camille's single-minded devotion to her profession has left many to wonder if she is more machine than woman. With a mind as sharp as the blades she bears, Camille is adaptable and patient, viewing chaos and sloppy technique as a thing that must be put to order."
More on Camille, including a background, story, and comic, available on the [UNIVERSE PAGE] .

      The following content has been testing on the PBE but will not be going to live in the patch.

      League Client Update Changes

      11/21 Update: Legend of the Poro King is now available on the League Client update's mode selection menu - this is the first RGMQ mode to be enabled on the LCU. Nexus Siege should also be available on the LCU in 6.24.

      11/22 Update: A new "potato mode" option was added to the PBE LCU. While no tooltip or explanation, I'd hazard a guess this is related to a "low spec" mode or otherwise some sort of upcoming performance enhancing option for lower end PCs.

      EDIT: Looks like "potato mode" went to PBE a bit early and is not hooked up yet. Context from Riot Credo:
      "hey, so this is a feature we're currently working on (it accidentally slipped to PBE, sorry!). We've gotten the framework for setting potato mode, but we havent actually connected it to anything yet. The reason for this is that there are multiple efforts to try and improve performance and some of our other efforts have made the client as a whole faster especially on machines powered by potatoes. So, once we figure out how far we can go with that, we'll see how much we need to be able to switch on and off with the potato mode button. Makes sense?"
      While we saw them debut last cycle then be removed near end of cycle, the options menu once again includes the ability to set in-game hotkeys through the LCU client.

      Winter Summoner's Rift

      Winter Summoner's Rift remains on the PBE for testing. Look for it to release in 6.24!
