New Champions

We know of three new champions joining the Legends of Runeterra: Worldwalker expansion roster; Gwen, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa.

Kai’Sa’s reveal shows that she has the Evolve keyword, and starts with a 5 cost, 4/4 card. She also has Quick Attack.

As for Gwen, she has the new keyword “Hallowed” and Quick Attack, and is a 3/4 card that levels up when dealing more than 10 damage.

We’ll update this page as we see more cards.
