Riot Games has finally announced Yone as the 150th champion in League of Legends and revealed a full look at each of his abilities ahead of his release in patch 10.16.

Since Riot shared that they would be introducing two new champions as part of the Summer event, which is now known as Spirit Blossom, many suspected that Yasuo’s brother, Yone, could be a front runner.

Following the release of a new Jungler Lillia in patch 10.15, Yone has now been confirmed by Riot as the second champion who will join the League of Legends roster during this event.

When is Yone coming to League of Legends?

After he was killed by his younger brother in battle, Yone has been resurrected and will make his Summoner’s Rift entrance in patch 10.16.

The patch is expected to take place on Wednesday, August 5. However, the champion is expected to look different than how the lore previously portrayed him.

Following his death, it has been revealed that Yone’s default look will feature him wearing a mask, although he will also receive a Spirit Blossom skin where his face can be seen without one.

It has also been confirmed that the Masked Warrior will be wielding dual swords for his arrival in patch 10.16, which will translate to some of his unique abilities.

Riot has also shared a full look at each of the skills available in the 150th champion’s kit. You can find the full list of his abilities down below.

Yone’s Abilities in League of Legends

Passive – Way of the Hunter

  • Yone uses two blades, causing every second attack to deal more magic damage. His critical strike chance is also doubled, but his critical strikes deal reduced damage.

Q – Mortal Steel

  • Yone thrusts forward, dealing physical damage to opponents. On hit, he gains a stack of Gathering Storm. At two stacks, Yone can dash forward with a wave that makes enemies airborne.

W – Spirit Cleave

  • Yone cleaves forward in a massive arc, dealing a portion of the target’s maximum health. After successfully hitting an enemy, Yone also gains a temporary shield. The shield’s power increases per champion struck.

E – Soul Unbound

  • Yone can enter his Spirit Form, gaining movement speed and leaving his body behind. When Yone’s Spirit Form expires, he’ll snap back into his body and deal a percentage of all the damage he dealt while in Spirit Form.

R – Fate Sealed

  • Yone strikes all enemies in his path, blinking behind the last enemy hit and knocking everyone airborne towards him.

Watch K/DA’s new video MORE with Seraphine’s debut

The second instalment from K/DA’s new “ALL OUT” EP has dropped, titled MORE, and it’s definitely ‘the baddest’ so far.

League of Legends’ K-Pop powerhouse K/DA are back with the music video for newest single from their upcoming EP, “ALL OUT”.

The track, entitled MORE, was released on October 28, and features the familiar vocal talents of Madison Beer, SOYEON and MIYEON of (G)I-IDLE, Lexie Liu and Jaira Burns.

The song is the title track of the five-track EP, which includes the already popular THE BADDEST, as well as three other songs entitled I’LL SHOW YOU, VILLAINS, and DRUM GO DUM.

There was also an also aftershow livestream following the premiere of the song on TikTok, starting at 5 minutes after the song dropped, where the band are teasing behind the scenes treats and interviews.

Seraphine’s K/DA debut

This song, however, has a difference: it’s the first K/DA track to feature LoL’s newest pop princess, Seraphine.

While the mysterious artist Seraphine has been heavily active on Spotify, releasing covers of KDA’s POP/STARS and iconic tracks such as t.A.T.u’s ‘All the Things She Said”, we have yet to see her make her mark on stage alongside the other K/DA artists.

It’ll be exciting to see how Seraphine continues to fit into the already establish foursome of Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai’sa, especially considering the vast differences in each artist’s vocal styles. Seraphine’s music has been much softer with an acoustic focus – entirely different from K/DA’s, yet she’s proven that she can adapt to be exactly what K/DA needs.

Will K/DA perform MORE at the World Finals?

It’s safe to assume that K/DA are lined up for the World Finals performance, something that their whirlwind tour around Shanghai.

Either way, it’s exciting to watch the band grow the closer they get to the finals, and LoL fans can’t wait to play them in game and get to know them even better.
