Jinx Joins the Champions of League of LegendsJohn Llewellyn Martin |
Riot Games has announced that a new character will be joining the ranks of League of Legends' Champions. Let's take a look at Jinx, the Loose Cannon.
According to the official League of Legends site, Jinx will be making her debut in the foreseeable future and bring a lot of chaos to the game. She's described as "packing major attitude and equipped with a cornucopia of carnage," making her one deadly addition to this happy little family of Champions.
Here are this sharpshooter's abilities:
- Passive: Get Excited! - Gives Jinx a movement speed buff whenever a Champion or tower that she's recently attacked is killed or destroyed. The buff decays over time.
- Q: Switcheroo! - Jinx switches her weapons from the Fishbones rocket launcher to the Pow-Pow minigun. The rocket launcher makes it so her basic attacks consume mana, but gives them extra range and damage. The minigun grants speed to her basic attacks and stacks up to three times.
- W: Zap! - Jinx fires off an electrical blast that deals damage to an enemy and slows them down. Perfect for running away from pursuers.
- E: Flame Chompers! - Jinx pops a line of snare grenades with delayed detonation. These light enemies on fire and root anyone who detonates them early.
- R: Super Mega Death Rocket! - According to the site, this ultimate attack travels around and "explodes on the first enemy champion hit, dealing damage to the target and all nearby enemies based on a percentage of their missing health." Sounds tasty.
