Riot Games have revealed that Kai’Sa will be the next new League of Legends champion joining Teamfight Tactics.

Kai’Sa enters TFT as a tier 5 unit, costing five gold, and is also one of the rare champions to boast three traits rather than the default two. She is set to join the live game with Patch 9.19, which is expected to arrive on September 25.

Naturally, Kai’Sa’s Origin is Void, but in terms of Class she’ll contribute to – and benefit from – the bonuses for both Ranger and Assassin, opening up some unique new composition options.

Her ability in Teamfight Tactics will be her ultimate, Killer Instinct, which will allow her to dash past the furthest enemy, gaining a shield and a lot of attack speed for a few seconds.

According to Lead Modes Designer Riot Mort, Kai’Sa will have the highest base attack speed in the game, making her perfect for use with items that benefit from getting attacks off quickly.

Riot GamesKai’Sa is the next champion coming to Teamfight Tactics.

“Kai’Sa’s base AD is lower, but she comes equipped with the highest base attack speed in the game. Perfect for stacking a Guinsoo’s or procing that Stattik Shiv as quick as possible in the end game. Her ultimate also allows her to jump around the map quickly and avoid dangerous situations. No longer are rangers locked into the corner!”

With the addition of Kai’Sa as a late-game carry in the Void class, Riot are also adjusting how the trait works slightly. From Patch 9.19, it will act like the Imperial bonus, picking one Void unit to do true damage if there are two on the field, but all will do true damage if there are four.

Kai’Sa is available for testing immediately on the Public Beta Environment (PBE), giving players a chance to try her out before she goes live with the 9.19 update.

League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

League cosplayer rules roost as Xayah

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
