League of Legends players should get ready for the next Season 10 champion’s debut: new datamined leaks and PBE teasers are pointing to long-teased jungler Lillia finally arriving in Riot’s popular MOBA in the coming weeks.

The secret is out ⁠— we have a name for the next champion in League of Legends. Lillia, or Lily, has been leaked as the “dreamy jungler” players have heard about since January, and her release is just around the corner.

The information comes after assets associated with Lillia were added to the PBE during the Patch 10.14 cycle. Two voicelines were uncovered ⁠— although they didn’t sound like the jungler players were expecting.

“They took your home, Lillia. Do not forget this loss. Let it course through you,” said one of the lines, in a tone similar to Thresh’s.

“Poor lost spirits beckoning in to bloom…I’ve been waiting for you,” was the other, in the same ominous tone.

 

On top of that, a Lotus flower icon was added as part of the “big summer event” Lillia is due to be released during. This ties into the Ionian theme of the champion most players have been expecting.

The first leak means that there’s likely to be more on the way during the Patch 10.14 cycle. More things could be uncovered this week coming in the lead-up to the update’s June 8 release.

Lillia has been described in previous Champion Roadmaps as “a mid-range skirmisher, frolicking in and out of the fray.”

There isn’t any gameplay footage out there of her yet ⁠— outside of a short clip shared during the last champion roadmap in early June. However, that was relatively vague, showing either an ability or Lillia curled up into a ball rolling across the map.

Lillia has been teased numerous times before, including in this Ionia background art.

What we do know for sure is that she’s going to be part of a “big summer event” featuring not one, but two champions. The other is a “masked assassin who refuses to die,” which many players have hypothesized is a link to Yone, Yasuo’s brother.

Given the hype around the event, it’s also fair to assume that plenty of rewards will be on offer, and maybe a few special skins. After all, it’s League’s 10 year anniversary in 2020, and this will likely cap off the celebrations.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about Lillia, or Lily, in the coming days. As always, we will share what we know here on Dexerto as soon as it comes up.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

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!
