League of Legends bug lets Draven attack from ridiculous distance

A League of Legends bug appears to massively increase the range on Draven’s auto-attacks.

Many players will likely have seen highlight clips of new champion Aphelios pulling off kills from incredible ranges, but a bug now appears to give the same long-distance lethality to Draven.

Reddit user Suklaamix captured a moment in which Draven, after making his way into the mid-lane to help clean up a fight, is able to eliminate the enemy Yuumi with auto-attacks from incredibly far away.

After the Senna that Yuumi was attached to dies, the Yuumi player attempts to flee down the lane towards the safety of their tower, only for Draven to walk up and eliminate them in a mere three hits despite seemingly being too far away.

Draven is one of the hardest-hitting champions in the game when he’s at his strongest, which is typically counter-balanced by a relatively low attack speed compared to many marksmen, and typically a reliance on being closer to his enemies than those with greater range like Caitlyn and Senna.

The clip demonstrates just how deadly Draven could be with a much-increased range, as being able to attack from so far away would not only make him much safer, but also make it much easier to catch his axes without walking into danger.

Fortunately, it seems this bug might not be quite as game-breaking as it appears on the surface. Some players have suggested that it is actually just a visual bug on the side of the player recording, and that Yuumi should in fact be shown much closer to Draven. The glitch may just be making it seem like Yuumi is too far away, rather than actually increasing the range of Draven’s attacks.

Even for Aphelios himself, it seems Riot are looking to tune down his range, with patch 10.3 set to reduce the range on his Calibrum marks from unlimited to 2000 units, in an effort to reduce the instances of frustrating deaths where the player being attacked feels helpless to counter.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
