Yasuo’s fallen brother Yone has been confirmed as the 150th champion set to be added to League of Legends alongside jungler Lillia ⁠— here’s everything we know about him so far, including his release date, abilities, and more.

Earlier this year, Riot promised two new champs in a “big” summer event. One, the “dreamy” jungler, has since been confirmed to be Lillia the Bashful Bloom. The second, described by Riot as a “masked stranger who refuses to die,” has been confirmed as Yone.

There’s not a lot that Riot has officially revealed about Yasuo’s resurrected brother so far. That doesn’t mean we don’t have anything to go off of. Here’s everything we know about LoL champ 150, including his abilities, lore, and more.

Yone, the “masked stranger”

Unlike Lillia, who has been a relatively mysterious figure in the League lore up to her reveal earlier this week, we already know a fair bit about Yone. The fallen warrior was murdered by his brother in one of League’s most iconic duels.

Riot has suggested the “masked stranger” champion would remind players that “some demons should remain in our past.” Considering Yasuo murdered his older brother, it makes sense Yone would come back for vengeance eventually.

Yone has not yet had his abilities unveiled, though considering Lillia’s were dropped on July 8 it’s likely the masked stranger will have his debut soon too. There are a few things we know about his upcoming kit, however.

Be warned ⁠— Yone could well enter Summoner’s Rift looking like his younger brother Yasuo in terms of skills and tricks. Riot described him as an “edgy solo-lane melee carry” during the early stages of production. Sound slightly familiar?

The fallen Ionian warrior has already made an appearance on one of Riot’s other games too, debuting as a Legends of Runeterra card in the base set. His card employs the “stun” ability, just like Yasuo’s core function. He also has even more base power than his living brother in the CCG too; Yasuo is a 5/5 champion, while Yone is 6/6.

It’s unlikely Riot will give Yone the exact same moves as Yasuo in regards to wind tornadoes and the ability to knock opponents up. It would be no surprise, however, to see similar moves in Yone’s kit when he is officially revealed.

Release date

Riot has already told players to expect the next two League champions in the “big” summer event coming up soon, which means Yone should arrive alongside Lillia sometime during the Patch 10.15 cycle, starting on July 22.

According to a new PBE update, Lillia will begin appearing in-game from around 3PM EDT on July 22. A new reward item, marked as “Lillia’s Haiku,” even points to that date specifically as the start of the champion’s teasers.

The date on the ‘Lillia Haiku’ also lines up perfectly with Patch 10.15, which will be available to download on live servers from July 22. That means Yone and Lillia should be set for their League debuts soon after the patch begins.

Yone skins & splash arts

Before Riot could officially reveal the upcoming champ, leaks have been aplenty that paint the bigger picture of what players can expect when Yone lands on the Rift.

There’s also a few leaks that have revealed what Yone’s first release skin will look like too. We can expect to see the fallen warrior among the “Spirit Blossom” skins that will be released in the next patch too.

The character’s base skin has also reportedly been leaked on Twitter by reputable LoL data miner ‘JumaraloHexCore‘. The image shows Yone as a spirit-like demon, complete with two long blades and dark, burning wings.

So, there you have it ⁠— everything you need to know about Yone, the new 150th League of Legends’ champion. There may be a bit of a wait until we finally get to see him in action, and find out his abilities, but there’s still plenty more to learn!

Want to get involved in the discussion about the new champion before then. Already decided (for whatever reason) to make him your new main? There’s a new Reddit community already live at /r/YoneMain, just for you.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
