League of Legends
League of Legends is a mixture between some of the RTS (Real time strategy for your RPG only folks) and RPG games you've played in the past, but with so much more. League of Legends is a competitive online game set in an imaginative world with you as the player taking control of a powerful magical character known as a Summoner. Each Summoner must participate in session based battles and control Champions to achieve victory and advance their persistent character. Here's a break down of the different types of characters in League of Legends. Riot Games has just unveiled details about its latest two champions for the upcoming PC game League of Legends: Clash of Fates. Both Teemo and Jax have been added to the official roster of champions to battle on the Fields of Justice.
Teemo the Swift Scout
Captain of the Bantam City Scouts, Teemo is the foremost defender of the yordle homeland. In addition to his duties as scout leader—which include planning the soap-box derby, teaching new recruits the scout’s pledge, and judging the yearly s’more-eating contest—Teemo is also responsible for the defense of Bantam City itself.
In Teemo’s bestselling autobiography, Accuracy by Volume, the leader of the Bantam City Scouts expounds on yordle military tactics, such as blow-dart carpet bombing, and filling trebuchets with poison-tipped sewing needles.
Though he can often be found in the courtyard outside the practice arenas signing copies of his book, Teemo is really at the League of Legends for another reason. He has come, as the emissary for the entire yordle nation, to petition the Institute of War to start a new type of tournament. His proposition includes wood carving, rope bridge building, and campfire cooking to the list of approve forms of “combat” sanctioned inside the League. So far, he hasn’t had much luck.
Blinding Dart (Active) – Teemo fires a poisonous dart that causes damage and hinders vision for a short duration.
Toxic Shot (Active) – Teemo sends a poisonous dart at a targeted Champion, dealing damage over time every second. Teemo can stack the effects of the poison with subsequent toxic shots.
Move Quick (Active) – Teemo goes into a full sprint, increasing his movement speed drastically. Should Teemo take damage while Moving Quickly, he must move slowly to recover.
Scouts Bounty (Active) – Teemo tracks an enemy champion for 30 seconds, causing the target to lose armor. If the target dies while being tracked, Teemo gains extra gold.
Eagle Eye (Passive) – Teemo’s eyes can see far into the distance; his sight range is increased.
Jax the Grandmaster at Arms
The most prolific tournament fighter in the League of Legends, the self-proclaimed “Grandmaster at Arms” rattled off a streak of consecutive wins 152 long. No one had ever achieved even half of that number before, but what made it even more remarkable was that he did so while fighting only 152 matches.
Concerned the peace accords that ended the Rune Wars would be threatened by a fighter who was unbeatable in the arena, the Institute of War hastily banned Jax from the arena all together. But after scores of petitions from his adoring fans, the Institute eventually relented, stating that a champion’s skill was no reason to remove a realm’s access to the governing powers of the tournaments.
Jax was reinstated, but with one rule: He is only allowed to fight with weapons the Institute deems suitable. For now, that list includes a lamppost, a chicken’s foot, a spatula, and a fishing rod.
Empower (Active) – Jax’s next attack cleaves multiple enemies in a single swing. This ability can stack where each subsequent attack adds bonus damage, cleave radius, and sight radius.
Leap Strike (Active) – Jax leaps toward an enemy target, attacking target immediately and dealing bonus damage.
Counter Strike (Active) – Jax’s Counter Strike permanently increases his ability to dodge incoming attacks. Additionally, if Jax dodges a physical attack he will briefly stun all nearby enemies.
Relentless Assault (Active) – Each attack drains Jax’s mana, but if he lands enough consecutive attacks on a target he will deal massive damage. Additionally, each successful attack increases his attack speed.
Weapon Mastery (Passive) – Jax has an incredible understanding of weaponry, this increase his physical damage gained through items.
