Riot Games started the year with lots of news related to League of Legends. If you’re part of their community, you’ll be happy to hear that the company revealed a new champion for their MOBA.
We refer to Viego, a dark character also known as the Ruined King. Ryan Mireles, the executive producer in charge of champion development, introduced us to the character with gameplay where we can see some of his abilities.
The creative said that Viego will be available soon on the test servers, so players will be able to test it before its official premiere, which is planned for sometime in January.
This is how VIEGO is, the new league of legends champion
According to his official description, Viego is a character capable of “commanding the fog and dominating death.” There will be 3 other new champions this year related to the Ruined King and his story.
With Sovereign’s Dominion, Viego will be able to momentarily possess a defeated enemy champion. With this, the sinister character will recover life and obtain the objects, attacks, and basic abilities of his rival.
On the other hand, there is Sword of the Ruined King, an ability with which it will cause damage and can even hit 2 times in case of hitting an enemy that it previously attacked with another ability. The second attack will steal life.
Viego can launch blasts of mist with Spectral Maw, stunning and damaging enemies. The range of the mist and the duration of the stun will be extended depending on how long the power is charged.
“No price is too great. No atrocity beyond my reach. For her… I will do anything.”🗡

With Ruined Path, the character will launch a wave of mist and gain camouflage, attack speed, and movement while in it. Finally, there is Heartbreaker, an ability with which he will teleport the enemy champion with less life to finish him off.
