New League of Legends Champion Zoe Abilities Revealed
Riot has revealed the abilities of the upcoming League of Legends champion, Zoe, and they are as wonky as was expected. Zoe, who was announced during the League of Legends Live music event in Beijing, is a magic based character who should drop rather soon in Patch 7.23 Public Beta Environment Cycle. Check out all Zoe abilities below.
Passive: More Sparkles
Passive – After casting a spell, Zoe’s next basic attack deals bonus magic damage.
Q: Paddle Star
Q – Zoe fires a star that deals magic damage in a small area and applies her passive. She can recast Q mid-flight to redirect the star to a new position near her. The star’s damage increases based on the distance it has traveled in a straight line.
W: Spell Thief
W – Enemy summoner spells and active item casts drop spell shards on the ground for an extended period of time. Some minions also drop a spell shard when killed by Zoe. Collecting a spell shard grants one cast of that spell or active item.
When casting any summoner spell, Zoe briefly gains bonus movement speed and tosses missiles at the nearest enemy (prioritizing her nearest enemy). Each missile can trigger her passive.
E: Sleepy Trouble Bubble
E – Zoe throws a ball that detonates on the first target hit, dealing magic damage and making the struck enemy drowsy. After a couple of seconds, drowsy enemies will briefly fall asleep and take extra damage from the next attack or spell. Whenever an enemy falls asleep, this ability’s cooldown is reduced.
If the Bubble hits nothing, it lingers on the ground as a trap. If cast over a wall, it gains casting range.
R: Portal Jump
R – Briefly teleport to a targeted position, then teleport back. During the teleport you can use abilities and attack normally, and see over walls. However, you won’t be able to move.
As mentioned above, Zoe will be hitting the Public Beta Environment soon (probably this week), so you can test out her kit there. For those without access to the PBE, Zoe should hit the general population in the upcoming Patch 7.23.
