Riot Games has revealed the latest League of Legends champion to grace the rift: Yone, the brother of Yasuo.

Yone is a melee champ that wields twin blades. As Yasuo’s long lost brother who comes back from the dead, he promises his own unique playstyle and personality.

His abilities are as follows:

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.

How will Yone fare in competitive and casual play? It’s hard to say for sure as he’s currently on the PBE and not the live servers.

Yone has been announced after Lillia, the magical fawn, a support/jungler type champion with a Scottish voice went live (when are we going to get a Ross Boomsocks voice pack, Riot?).

Yone will also have a Spirit Blossom skin:

Spirit Blossom Yone

Riot Games recently launched its new anime-inspired Spirit Blossom event across LoL, TFT and Legends of Runeterra.

There’s some more info on Yone, including lore information, over on Riot’s Yone Champion Insights page.
