Simple Yone ability trick gives League players extra global teleport

Riot has confirmed Yone as the 150th champion in League of Legends and players are already finding unique tricks with the assassin’s abilities that essentially give you an extra global teleport.

Yasuo’s brother, Yone, will arrive in Summoner’s Rift for patch 10.16, after it was revealed that he would be the second new champion added in the Spirit Blossom event, following Lillia in the 10.15 update.

Riot did a full reveal of the character and his abilities, along with a cinematic trailer revealing his lore on July 24, later releasing him on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) for players to test.

Yone is available on League of Legends’ PBE servers, as of July 24.

Not long after the champion was added to the beta servers, an easy trick with Yone’s ‘E’ ability was found, allowing him to basically gain another teleport during a match.

The E ability, which is called ‘Soul Unbound’, lets Yone enter a spirit form and leave his body behind for five seconds, before returning back to his original position, similarly to Ekko’s ‘Chronobreak’ ultimate.

League of Legends YouTuber Vandiril shared some of the unique possibilities with Yone’s spirit form, highlighting that it can be used to quickly teleport elsewhere and back, without having to walk and miss out on resources in your lane.

It was revealed that Yone players with an empowered Baron recall could also use this trick and return to the fountain to quickly buy any items while maintaining pressure on the map.

There is only a short window available after teleporting or recalling so Yone will have limited time to dish out damage or buy items before being cast out of spirit form.

As the ability to cancel teleports was removed in League of Legends Season 9, this technique could also be used to threaten opponents globally without missing out on any gold.

Similar tricks have been found for other champions such as Akali’s E and Ekko’s R, as mentioned before, but as they can be situational and difficult to master, it is quite possible that Yone’s ability will also remain unchanged for his full release on August 5.

Riot dev reveals Ornn ability buffs for League 2021 preseason

A Riot Games developer has revealed League of Legends 2021 preseason buffs for Ornn’s Masterwork passive ability after the latest set of changes were expected to nerf the champion during the massive item overhaul.

While there are 150 unique champions in League of Legends, Ornn could be one of the characters affected most by the upcoming item overhaul, as his Passive ability can upgrade items for himself and teammates.

Ornn is currently one of the most played top lane champions in League of Legends, particularly in pro play, after becoming the leading champion for picks and bans at Worlds 2020, appearing in 90.4% of champion select phases, but he may soon fall out of the meta.

Ornn’s ‘Living Forge’ skills are set to receive some buffs in the preseason.

Concerns were raised for the future of the Forgelord after Riot devs initially revealed changes to his passive ability that would remove one of his masterwork items, resulting in a considerable nerf of around 400 HP.

However, Riot developer Phlox has now responded to the concerns, sharing some new changes that the LoL design team is testing on PBE, to buff the fan-favorite Freljordian’s passive once again.

The League of Legends dev explained that, while Ornn would not be able to upgrade two items at the level 13 mark, there would be other ways for him to gain resistances to opponents’ damage.

“Put an experimental change to Ornn for preseason on PBE,” he explained, “now every time he upgrades any mythic to a masterwork his passive Armor/MR amp increases by 5% (10% without upgrades, same as live).”

Unlike the current version of Ornn, the champion’s new passive ability would gain Magic Resist and Armor from simply upgrading Mythic items for himself or others.

While this was listed as an “experimental change,” Phlox also indicated on the Ornn Mains subreddit that this was the direction they wanted to take with Ornn and that there may be more changes with the statistics before live release.

As of now, the start date for the League of Legends 2021 preseason has yet to be announced by Riot but is expected to go live in November.
