league of legends champion is kinda creepy but awesome
Last week, League of Legends developer Riot Games revealed an eerie video on its Facebook page teasing the release of a new champion. The video features dialogue between a lamb and a wolf, discussing the sad story of a pale man who split himself in two.
Lamb: He took an axe and split himself in two.
Wolf: So he would always have a friend?
Lamb: So he would always have a friend.
Who exactly are the lamb and wolf? Their name is Kindred, and just like the pale man in the story, they make up two halves of a whole.
Their abilities revolve around life and death–think of them like the grim reaper. Their passive ability marks a chosen enemy anywhere on the map. If they kill you or assist in killing you while you’re marked, they become stronger.
While the lamb shoots arrows like a marksman with its Q ability, the wolf will attack you in a frenzy with its W ability. Think you can flash away? Not so fast. Kindred’s E ability will slow you down just enough for them to take away your life.
But they can give life just as easily as they can take it away with their ultimate ability. If they see an ally in danger they can stop that ally from taking damage for a brief moment and heal them. However, Kindred is a glass cannon, which means players will have to position themselves carefully on the back line to deal out damage in skirmishes.
Riot Games created Kindred with the intention of keeping the champion in the jungle. But with their versatile kit and high damage output, it remains to be seen how players will actually end up playing Kindred.
