Yasuo’s fallen brother Yone has been confirmed as the 150th champion to join the massive League of Legends roster alongside dreamy jungler Lillia, after new splash art images and voice line files leaked in the Patch 10.15 update.

Two new League champions are set to join Riot’s title as the 149th and 150th debutants on Summoner’s Rift. One, “dreamy” jungler Lillia, has already been officially revealed by the devs in an animated teaser on July 7.

The other, teased as “masked stranger that refuses to die” by LoL devs all the way back in a blog update in January, had ⁠— fittingly ⁠— been left in the dark as Lillia was unveiled. We know now the 150th champion will be Yone.

The first image of the new League champion was leaked on social media late on July 7, just hours after Lillia was revealed. The splash art depicted Yone’s Spirit Blossom skin, which is likely his release variant option.

A number of leaked audio files linked to the new Spirit Blossom Thresh skin also mentioned Yone. The voiceover “first encounter” files have multiple proximity-based quotes for when the Chain Warden meets Vayne, Yasuo, and Yone.

Unlike Lillia, who has been a relatively mysterious figure in the League lore up to her reveal earlier this week, we already know a fair bit about Yone. The fallen warrior was murdered by his brother in one of League’s most iconic duels.

He made his return to Riot’s ever-expanding world earlier this year, when he was released as a Legend card in Legends of Runeterra. The rumor mill roared to life soon after. Dexerto tipped Yone to be the next champion back in April.

Returning from the dead seems a little bit too deus-ex-machina, of course, but remember it’s a storyline Riot has enjoyed tapping into recently. Six years after Lucian was released, he was finally reunited with his wife Senna in 2019.

It’s expected Yone will likely have abilities similar to Yasuo. The two trained together, before Yone was killed, so it certainly makes sense if the two tap into the same Ionian powers.

The second summer event champion ⁠— which is now confirmed as Yone ⁠— was described as “an edgy solo-lane melee carry” by Riot during the early stages of production too. Basically, it looks like Riot is releasing Yasuo 2.0 next patch.

Yone has yet to actually be unveiled so far in Season 10, but considering he’s set to arrive at the same time as Lillia, League players can expect Riot to officially pull back the curtain on the resurrected Ionian warrior soon enough.

Riot told players to expect two new champs in the “big” summer event. We now know that is the “Spirit Blossom” event. That is set to arrive in Patch 10.15, meaning we should see the two new champs sometime after July 22.

While you’re waiting for Yone to arrive, make sure you get up to date with Lillia, the Bashful Bloom. Here’s everything we know about the “dreamy” new jungler, including her ability kit, splash arts, backstory, and plenty more.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
