Meet the New League of Legends Champion: Kindred
Posted By: The GamerDating Team - September 15, 2015
Riot Games, makers of League of Legends, announced their newest champion today - Kindred, the Eternal Hunters. These marksmen are are fragile but powerful and designed for life in the jungle.
From Riot Games:
Kindred prowls through camps, marking enemy champions for death and permanently growing in strength if they’re able to carry out the promised sentence. But just as Kindred brings death, so can they delay it. Should their allies meet deadly force, Lamb - one of Kindred’s two spirits - can create a large blessed zone that, for a few valuable seconds, denies the ever-creeping and inevitable clutches of death.
Here are Kindred’s abilities:
Passive: Mark of the Kindred
Lamb marks an enemy champion - anywhere on the map - for death. After a delay, the mark activates - if Kindred kills them, or assists in their death, they gain a permanent stackable bonus to their basic attacks. In addition to Lamb choosing an enemy champion for the Mark of the Kindred, Wolf automatically hungers for large enemy jungle monsters from time to time. All champions can see targets that are marked for death.
Q: Dance of Arrows
Kindred dashes in a target direction before firing at up to three nearby enemies.
W: Wolf's Frenzy
Passive: Kindred builds stacks of Hunter’s Vigor as they move around. Once fully stacked, Kindred’s next basic attack steals a flat amount of health.
Active: Wolf temporarily splits from Lamb, creating a large spirit zone around him and attacking whoever Lamb attacks, or his closest enemy. Lamb can cast Dance of Arrows with a greatly reduced cooldown while inside Wolf's Frenzy.
E: Mounting Dread
Kindred slows a targeted enemy. If they then attack their crippled target three times, the target suffers a burst of percent max health damage.
R: Lamb's Respite
Kindred creates a large, temporary zone beneath itself or a targeted ally. While active, Lamb's Respite prevents ALL units within its boundaries from dropping below critical levels of health.
Kindred are said to work well with Gragas, Alistar and Ashe while struggling against Lee Sin, Irelia and Sassiopeia. Check out this video preview of Kindred's fighting on YouTube.
