Riot Games has revealed League of Legends new champion called Zoe, Aspect of Twilight. She will be testing in Public Beta Environment server two weeks before releases on the official servers.
Don’t be fooled by her childish appearance—Zoe is an ancient being, a cosmic messenger of Targon. When the Aspect of Twilight appears, she warps reality. Despite all this power, she often shirks her duties in favor of blowing bubbles and playing tricks on unsuspecting mortals. One can never be sure of what she’s really aiming for… other than her own amusement.
Passive: More Sparkles!
After casting a spell, Zoe’s next basic attack deals bonus magic damage.
Q: Paddle Star
Zoe fires a star that deals magic damage in a small area and applies her passive. She can recast Q mid-flight to redirect the star to a new position near her. The star’s damage increases based on the distance it has traveled in a straight line.
W: Spell Thief
Enemy summoner spells and active item casts drop spell shards on the ground for an extended period of time. Some minions also drop a spell shard when killed by Zoe. Collecting a spell shard grants one cast of that spell or active item.
When casting any summoner spell, Zoe briefly gains bonus movement speed and tosses missiles at the nearest enemy (prioritizing her nearest enemy). Each missile can trigger her passive.
E: Sleepy Trouble Bubble
Zoe throws a ball that detonates on the first target hit, dealing magic damage and making the struck enemy drowsy. After a couple of seconds, drowsy enemies will briefly fall asleep and take extra damage from the next attack or spell. Whenever an enemy falls asleep, this ability’s cooldown is reduced.
If the Bubble hits nothing, it lingers on the ground as a trap. If cast over a wall, it gains casting range.
R: Portal Jump
Briefly teleport to a targeted position, then teleport back. During the teleport you can use abilities and attack normally, and see over walls. However, you won’t be able to move.
PLAYING AS ZOE
As the Aspect of Twilight, you’re a trickster with a bag full of toys and traps. Surround your enemies with balls, stars, and spells, then Portal Jump around within your deadly playground, flinging abilities—and yourself—into unexpected locations.
When entering a teamfight as Zoe, Spell Thief forces your opponents to think in a new way about how they use their spells and active items. Too quickly, their flash becomes your flash—or even better, their Redemption becomes your salvation.
There are holes in reality. And… in donuts
TIPS AND TRICKS
Paddle Star does more damage depending on how far it’s flown in a straight line. Cast it at your target for a light chip spell that can be redirected if they dodge the initial blast. Cast it further away (often behind yourself) for a massive but less reliable nuke.
Over 40 spells and active items can drop as a result of Spell Thief’s passive. If you see a powerful spell drop on the far side of a fight, use Portal Jump to dive in and collect it before returning safely to your backline.
Good Zoe players will spend time practicing important combos involving Portal Jump. Try portaling near walls and aim over them to get the extra cast range on your Trouble Bubble, and master the art of quickly harassing with Portal Jump to extend your basic attack range.
Nobody has to grow up if they don’t want to.
Or maybe they do? I don’t, though.
