Deep inside, she felt the skin she had been born into was an ill fit for her and dreamed of one day becoming human. Her goal seemed forever out of reach, until she happened upon the wake of a human battle. It was a grisly scene, the land obscured by the forms of wounded and dying soldiers. She felt drawn to one: a robed man encircled by a waning field of magic whose life was quickly slipping away. She approached him and something deep inside of her triggered, reaching out to the man in a way she couldn't understand. His life essence poured into her, carried on invisible strands of magic. The sensation was intoxicating and overwhelming. As her reverie faded, she was delighted to discover that she had changed. Her sleek white fur had receded and her body was long and lithe, the shape of the humans who lay scattered about her. However, though she appeared human, she knew that in truth the transformation was incomplete. A cunning creature, she adapted herself to the customs of human society and used her profound gift of beauty to attract unsuspecting men. She could consume their life essences when they were under the spell of her seductive charms. Feeding on their desires brought her closer to her dream, but as she took more lives, a strange sense of regret began to well within her. She had reservations about actions which never troubled her as a fox. She realized that she could not overcome the pangs of her evolving morality. In search of a solution, Ahri found the Institute of War, home of the most gifted mages on Runeterra. They offered her a chance to attain her humanity without further harm through service in the League of Legends.

[champion] => Array ( [champion_id] => 50 [display_name] => Akali [url_str] => akali [title] => The Rogue Assassin [key] => [description] => Ionia has always been a land of wild magic, its vibrant people and powerful spirits seeking to live in harmony… but sometimes this peaceful equilibrium does not come easily. Sometimes it needs to be kept in check. The Kinkou are the self-appointed keepers of Ionia’s sacred balance. The order’s loyal acolytes walk the spirit and material realms, mediating conflicts between them and, when necessary, intervening by force. Born among their ranks was Akali, daughter of Mayym Jhomen Tethi, the renowned Fist of Shadow. Mayym and her partner Tahno raised their daughter within the Kinkou Order, under the watchful leadership of Great Master Kusho, the Eye of Twilight. Whenever her parents were called away, other members of the order stepped in as Akali’s surrogate family. Kennen, the Heart of the Tempest, spent many hours with the young girl, teaching her shuriken techniques, and emphasizing speed and agility over strength. Akali was a precocious child, and soaked up the knowledge like a sponge. It became clear to all that she would follow her parents’ path—along with the Great Master’s son and appointed successor Shen, she would lead a new generation dedicated to preserving Ionia’s balance. But balance can be fleeting. The order found itself divided. A wayward acolyte named Zed returned, and clashed violently with Kusho, wresting power in a bloody coup. Akali fled into the eastern mountains along with Mayym, Shen, Kennen, and a handful of other acolytes. Sadly, Tahno was not among them. Zed’s transformation of the Kinkou into the merciless Order of Shadow was almost complete. But, as the new Eye of Twilight, Shen intended to rebuild what had been lost. They would return to the Kinkou’s three fundamental philosophies: the pure impartiality of Watching the Stars, the passage of judgment in Coursing the Sun, and the elimination of imbalance by Pruning the Tree. Even though they were now few, they would train neophytes to restore and grow their numbers once more. When Akali came of age at fourteen, she formally entered her Kinkou training, determined to succeed her mother as the new Fist of Shadow. She was a prodigious fighter, and mastered the kama and kunai—a handheld sickle and throwing dagger. Though she did not possess the magical abilities of many of her fellow acolytes, she proved to all she was worthy of the title, in time allowing her mother to step down and help mentor the younger neophytes. But Akali’s soul was restless, and her eyes were open. Though the Kinkou and the Order of Shadow had come to an uneasy accord in the wake of the Noxian invasion of Ionia, she saw that her homeland continued to suffer. She questioned whether they were truly fulfilling their purpose. Pruning the Tree was meant to eliminate those who threatened the sacred balance... yet Shen would always urge restraint. He was holding her back. All the mantras and meditations could quiet her spirit, but such platitudes would not defeat their adversaries. Her youthful precociousness turned to outright disobedience. She argued with Shen, she defied him, and she took down Ionia’s enemies her way. In front of the whole order, she declared the impotence of the Kinkou, all its talk of spiritual balance and patience accomplishing little. Ionians were dying in the material realm, and that was the realm Akali would defend. She was trained as an assassin. She was going to be an assassin. She did not need the order anymore. Shen let her go without a fight, knowing this was a path that Akali must walk alone. Perhaps that path would bring her back one day, but that would be for her to decide.

The High Command had just put down a coup attempt from the self-proclaimed Crown Prince Raschallion, and a crack down on any form of dissent against the new government was underway. These political and social outcasts, known as the Gray Order, sought to leave their neighbors in peace as they pursued dark arcane knowledge. The leaders of this outcast society were a married couple: Gregori Hastur, the Gray Warlock, and his wife Amoline, the Shadow Witch. Together they led an exodus of magicians and other intelligentsia from Noxus, resettling their followers beyond the Great Barrier to the northern reaches of the unforgiving Voodoo Lands. Though survival was a challenge at times, the Gray Order's colony managed to thrive in a land where so many others would have failed. Years after the exodus, Gregori and Amoline had a child: [[Annie]]. Early on, Annie's parents knew there was something special about their daughter. At the age of two, Annie miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear ''Tibbers'' by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of Annie's lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power. It is this same girl who now finds herself as one of the most sought-after champions within the League of Legends - even by the city-state that would have exiled her parents had they not fled beforehand.

As was his people's way, Kegan sailed far and wide with his fellows, stealing treasures from those unlucky enough to catch their attention. To some, he was a monster; to others, just a man. One night, as they sailed through the arctic waters, strange lights danced over the frozen wastes. There was something hypnotic about them; it was something that drew them to it like moths to a flame. Trekking across the frozen waste, they came to a cave covered in ancient runes. The meaning of the runes long lost to them, Kegan led the way inside. There, inside a perfect cage of ice floated a dancing column of flame. There was no way such a thing should be burning, especially not in this place. However, its movement was as hypnotic as a siren's song, captivating and seductive. While the others stayed back, Kegan could not help but approach it while holding out his hand... That is the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers, for now his body belongs to Brand. It is a creature of olden times, perhaps even a casualty of the Rune Wars. It is known in ancient texts as the Burning Vengeance. It is a creature of pure fiery hate that exists for no other reason than to lay waste the world of men and yordles. No one is quite sure how Brand found his way to Valoran, but he began his predations at once. Overcome by Demacian forces, he was given a choice: fight within the confines of the League or die. Naturally, he chose to use his destructive powers in the League, for now...

Despite its name, the Void is not an empty place, but rather the home of unspeakable things - horrors not meant for minds of men. Cho'Gath is a creature born of the Void, a thing whose true nature is so awful most will not speak its name. Its fellows have been poking at the walls that divide dimensions for a crack, a way into Runeterra, where they can visit their own personal paradise of horror upon the world. They are called the Voidborn, creatures so ancient and terrible that they have been removed from history altogether. It is rumored that the Voidborn command vast armies of unspeakable creatures on other worlds, that they were once driven from Runeterra by powerful magic lost to antiquity. If such tales are true, then the rumors that follow must be equally true - that one day, the Voidborn will return. Even now, something dark stirs in Icathia, perverting the summoning rituals of the League to allow the presence of Cho'Gath. It is an alien creature of malice and violence, a thing that causes all but the most stalwart to cringe in fear. Cho'Gath even appears to feed on its predations, growing and swelling as it gorges itself. Worse yet, the creature is intelligent, perhaps greatly so, making most wonder how such a monster could be contained. Fortunately, the power of the League's summoning has confined Cho'Gath's presence exclusively to the League of Legends. It is here that summoners use Cho'Gath's Voidborn abilities to help decide the fate of Runeterra. The Terror of the Void knows what fate it would choose for Runeterra, given half the chance. Woe betide the day when Cho'Gath grows weary of the League.

Though she was born to the Solari, Diana's inquisitive nature set her apart from her brethren. She had always found solace and guidance in the night sky, and questioned the dominance of the sun in her society. The Solari elders responded to her challenges with only derision and punishment. Diana remained convinced, however, that if she could find evidence of the moon's power, the elders would listen to reason. For years, she studied Solari archives in solitude until she discovered an encoded message hidden in an old tome. This clue led her to a secluded valley on Mount Targon where she unearthed the hidden entrance to an ancient, sealed temple. Inside, among aging relics and faded murals, she found an ornate suit of armor and a beautiful crescent blade, both inscribed with sigils of the moon. Diana donned the armaments and returned to the Solari elders that night. She declared that the artifacts proved others had once worshipped the moon as she did. Her discovery of evidence challenging Solari dominion shocked the elders. To Diana's horror, they pronounced her a heretic and condemned her to death. As the elders prepared her for execution, Diana's anger and sorrow overwhelmed her desire for acceptance. She lifted her gaze to the sky, calling upon the moon for strength. Lunar power surged within her and she shattered her bindings. Raising her relic blade, she turned and slaughtered the elders. With the temple in ruins behind her, Diana resolved to destroy all those who would deny the power of the moon. "The sun does not reveal truth.

Though these creatures had their enemies, the city was an impenetrable fortress, and, in the safety it provided, they grew complacent. Fizz, however, harbored a curious spirit that could not be satisfied living so cushioned a life. Unable to resist the allure of danger, Fizz had a habit of sneaking out of the city to look for trouble. In his many adventures he grew to be a powerful fighter with a keen resourcefulness that let him skirt danger with clever ease. One day, Fizz returned to find the city abandoned: his people had vanished, leaving Fizz without a clue to explain their disappearance. With nothing left in the city to keep him, Fizz salvaged an enchanted trident from the ruins and set out alone. For years, Fizz wandered the ocean, using the skills he'd learned during his adventures as a young boy to survive. Finally, Fizz discovered the port of Bilgewater. He was fascinated with the existence of life above the water and could not resist exploring the island. In his endless curiosity, Fizz inadverently meddled in the affairs of the humans who lived there and his presence did not go unnoticed. His mischief angered many residents who eventually sought to capture or kill him. Fizz found himself cornered, and he prepared to return to the sea despite the fondness he'd come to hold for Bilgewater. As he stood at the docks, a massive dragon-shark attacked the port. Fizz defeated the beast, using his resourcefulness and knowledge of the creatures' weaknesses to his advantage. Having earned the gratitude and respect of the humans, Fizz decided to stay in Bilgewater. He joined the League of Legends to further serve his new home. ''Fizz makes even the saltiest sailors of Bilgewater look like drunken landlubbers in a fight. Good thing he's on our side.'' -- Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter.

Only the burning emerald light of his unearthly gaze pierces the musty darkness of his dust-covered home. It is here that the Harbinger of Doom keeps a silent vigil. His is a cautionary tale of power run amok, taught to all summoners within the League. Decades ago, there existed a powerful rune mage from Zaun - Istvaan. At the end of the fifth Rune War, he became one of the League's first summoners. Too much a prisoner to the old ways of magic, Istvaan stepped further and further outside the rules of conduct in the League. In what was ultimately his last match, his reach finally exceeded his grasp. Sealing himself inside the easternmost summoning chamber, he began incanting the most forbidden of rituals - an extra-planar summoning. What exactly happened inside that chamber remains unknown. No champion came to represent Zaun that day in Summoner's Rift. Only silence echoed back from repeated knocks on the chamber door. The first apprentice who entered was cut down immediately by an unearthly scythe. What few who followed and survived were driven mad by fear, mere husks of men gibbering about crows and death. Afraid of the evil even Istvaan could not control, the League sealed all exits to the chamber, hoping they could contain what they could not destroy. Years went by, but the wooden figure within never moved save to slay any foolish enough to enter. Seeing no recourse to reclaim the chamber, the Council instead devised a use for Fiddlesticks: executioner. While he comes to life and seemingly abides by the rules of summoning in the Fields of Justice, what he awaits inside his chamber is unknown. His unmoving face yields no clues, and his scythe stands ready to strike down any who stand before him. Those who say 'you have nothing to fear but fear itself' have not yet felt the crows.

The great academies of Piltover far to the north called to him, daring him to make his mark in the City of Progress. Knowing he would never thrive away from his own kind, Heimerdinger gathered like-minded yordles to join him in his quest, thus forming the backbone of the now famous Yordle Academy of Science & Progress. Since then, he has become one of the most respected minds of the modern age and his academy is one of the leading institutions in all of Valoran. Heimerdinger has pioneered many new scientific achievements, delving deeper and deeper into the field of techmaturgy, including the development of the now ubiquitous star-rods that light many of the streets of the city-states. However, there is something strange about the Revered Inventor. In his quest to expand knowledge, he underwent an experiment of his own design to allow him to use a greater portion of his brain simultaneously. It most certainly worked, but at an unusual cost - Heimerdinger's brain increased in size. His head changed along with it and now the great scientist looks like a yordle with a giant brain-shaped head. Heimerdinger has turned his attentions to the current state of war on Valoran, however, and works to rectify what he considers is an unacceptable situation. Heimerdinger believes that science is the key to saving the world. Much more, he has rolled up his sleeves and is out to prove this as a member of the League of Legends - most definitely as the League's smartest champion! Science is on the march. Look out!

While her peers explored the torrent of emotions that came with adolescence, Karma meditated in the Lotus Gardens. She was convinced that the true path to enlightenment was a journey inward, to a place within the self, overlooked by most. She exuded such inner contentment that she quickly became a go-to mediator and confidante in her village. Her instructors used to say: ''That girl can not only weather a storm, but calm it.'' Karma did not live extravagantly; her parents owned a local business selling antiques in the Navori province and they often struggled to provide for themselves, though they did so with cheery optimism. Her most prized possessions were two exquisite fans taken from her family's shop. When Noxian troops invaded southern Ionia, her village was one of the first to fall. The villages who survived the assault were captured by Noxian forces. It was then that Karma found her calling. By exploiting the insecurities of the Noxian commander, she negotiated the safe release of the villages to the northern lands. She was present at the Placidium, where the Elders had considered surrender until Irelia's impassioned last stand renewed the Ionian's hope. Karma used this hope to solidify the Elders' commitment to remain defiant against the Noxian onslaught. For her devotion and charisma, Karma was made the figurehead of the Ionian resistance. She never compromised, and she shared every hardship with her people, even when it came to combat. By tapping into her inner resilience, she discovered that she could bring great force to bear against her foes on the battlefield. She modified her fans into lethal implements, and was tutored by Janna to enhance their effects. The Noxians called her, ''The Enlightened One,'' a nickname she embraced, and one which they would come to dread. She joined the League to represent Ionia in the ultimate political arena.

Despite its name, the Void is not an empty place, but rather the home of unspeakable things, horrors not meant for minds of men. Though such knowledge is lost in modern times, there are those who have unwittingly discovered what lies beyond, and they have been unable to turn away. Kassadin is such a creature. He was once a man forced to look upon the face of the Void and forever changed by what he saw. Once a seeker of forbidden knowledge, he discovered that what he sought was something else entirely. He is one of the few that has found his way to forgotten Icathia and lived to tell the tale, following the scant breadcrumbs hidden in ancient texts. Within a decaying cyclopean city, Kassadin found secrets of the kind that he will never share - secrets that made him quake with fear at the visions of things to come that were thrust upon him. The power of the place threatened to consume him forever, but Kassadin took the only route available to him in order to survive - he let the Void inside him. Miraculously, he was able to overcome the alien urges that went with it, and he emerged as something more than human. Though a part of him died that day, he knows that he must protect Valoran from the things scratching at the door, waiting to get in and visit their torments upon the world. They are only one step away... something to which the appearance of the abomination known as Cho'Gath attests. If you look upon the Void, you can't put it behind you.

There are some, however, for whom nurture is not nature, and Katarina is just such a creature. Born the daughter of the feared Noxian General Du Couteau, the girl was always more interested in her father's knives than in the dresses, jewelry, and other trifles that her sisters spent so much time fussing over. A childhood dispute soon unveiled her uncanny knack for bloodshed, and her father, ever the opportunist, happily fostered her killer instincts. After training under the tutelage of the finest assassins the mighty city-state had to offer, Katarina first cut her teeth performing assassinations in the Ionian War. There, her ruthless mastery of the knife and dagger combined with her sadistic temperament to earn her the title Sinister Blade, a moniker that would follow her for the remainder of her career. She is most famous, however, for her exploits in the campaigns against Demacia, especially those surrounding her engagements with the nation's champion, Garen; a rivalry that began when she recovered the remains of Sion from a vanguard under his protection. With the demand for warfare somewhat arrested by the tenuous peace settling over Valoran, Katarina sought the allure of violence in its last remaining haven: The League of Legends.

Noxus - though its name is already invoked with a mixture of reverence and revulsion - is no exception to this simple truth. Deep within the winding dungeons that honeycomb the earth beneath its dark, meandering streets lies the real underbelly of this sprawling metropolis, a haven for all manner of malevolence. Amongst the cults, covens, and secret societies that call this labyrinth their home, LeBlanc, the Deceiver, presides over the Black Rose, a remnant from a lost, yet similarly unscrupulous time in Noxian history. Ruthless and seemingly ageless, LeBlanc and her ilk were a mainstay in Noxian political affairs during the era before the militarization of the Noxian government. In those days, this guild of powerful magicians met in secret to further their hidden agenda, and to hone a craft more subtle than that preferred by those currently in power. While their exact motives have always remained mysterious, it was widely believed that the Black Rose was the true power behind the throne while the aristocracy still reigned in Noxus. When raw martial prowess became the ultimate determination of whose will held sway in the Empire, the Black Rose seemed to vanish overnight. Many believed that perhaps their time had simply passed, and that its members had put aside their quests for social and political dominance. When LeBlanc reemerged at the gates of the Institute of War, however, it became clear that these masters of shadow and flame had simply been biding their time, waiting for a new global authority to emerge: the League of Legends.

With the force of her black ice, she does more than freeze – she impales and crushes those who oppose her. To the terrified denizens of the north, she is known only as “The Ice Witch.” The truth is much more sinister: Lissandra is a corruptor of nature who plots to unleash an ice age on the world. Centuries ago, Lissandra betrayed her tribe to evil creatures, known as the Frozen Watchers, in return for power. That was the last day that warm blood ran through her veins. With her corrupted tribesmen and the strength of the Watchers, she swept across the land like a terrible blizzard. As her empire spread, the world grew colder and ice choked the land. When the Watchers were defeated by ancient heroes, Lissandra did not lose faith and swore to prepare the world for their return. Lissandra worked to purge all knowledge of the Watchers from the world. Using magic to take human form, she masqueraded as numerous seers and elders. Over the course of generations, she rewrote the stories of the Freljord, and so the history of its people changed. Today the fragmented retellings of the Watchers are seen as children’s tales. But this deception wasn’t enough – Lissandra also needed an army. She set her sights on the noble Frostguard tribe. Lissandra knew corrupting the Frostguard would take centuries, and so she launched her greatest deception. She murdered and stole the identity of the Frostguard leader. Then she slowly began to warp the tribe’s proud traditions. When her human form grew old, she faked her own death and then murdered her successor to steal her identity. With each generation, the Frostguard grew more insular, cruel and twisted. Today, the world still sees them as a noble and peaceful tribe that guards against evil creatures like the Ice Witch. In truth, they now serve the witch and long for the glorious return of the Watchers. Lissandra knows that on that day nations will fall and the world will be reborn in ice. “Close your eyes and let the cold take you.” - Lissandra [spotlight_embed_url] => http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xsCp5lBceTA [role] => Mage [defense_rating] => 5 [magic_rating] => 8 [attack_rating] => 2 [difficulty_rating] => 6 [damage_rating] => 3 [mobility_rating] => 2 [cc_rating] => 3 [toughness_rating] => 1 [utility_rating] => 1 [health] => 506 [health_increase] => 0 [mana] => 304 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 325 [armor] => 20.2 [armor_increase] => 0 [magic_resistance] => 30 [magic_resistance_increase] => 0 [attack_damage] => 53 [attack_damage_increase] => 0 [critical_strike] => 0 [critical_strike_increase] => 0 [health_regeneration] => 6.9 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0 [mana_regeneration] => 5.7 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 550 [attack_speed] => 0.625 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.778 [health_18] => 1781 [mana_18] => 1324 [movement_speed_18] => 325 [armor_18] => 83.1 [magic_resistance_18] => 38.5 [attack_damage_18] => 98.9 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 16.3 [mana_regeneration_18] => 12.5 [attack_range_18] => 550 [tip_playing_as] => * You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default). * Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go. * Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages.

During her youth in Bandle City, she spent most of her time wandering alone in the forest or lost in a daydream. It wasn't that she was antisocial; the day-to-day bustle of Bandle City just couldn't compete with the vibrant world of her imagination. She saw wonder in places most people overlooked. This was how she found Pix, a fae spirit, pretending to be stuck in a birdhouse. Lulu's imagination distinguished her to Pix, and he seized the opportunity to lure her into his life. He brought her to the Glade, the enchanted home of the fae, which lay nestled in a clearing in the woods. There the rigid properties of the outside world - things like size and color - changed as frequently and whimsically as the direction of the wind. Lulu felt at home in the Glade and she lingered there with Pix, fascinated by this secret place. She quickly lost track of time. Her life in the Glade was comfortable, natural. She and Pix played fae games together, the sorts of games that she had been told were "make believe"... and she got exceedingly good at them. It caught her by surprise when she suddenly remembered that she had left a life behind in Bandle City. The Glade had a way of making everything outside seem distant and surreal. Lulu decided to revisit her former home, to share some of the lovely things she'd learned, but when she and Pix returned the world had changed. Time, she discovered, was another property that behaved differently in the Glade, and centuries had passed while she was away. Lulu sought to reconnect to the residents of the outside world, but her attempt had unfortunate results. She led all the children off to play hide and seek, temporarily changing them into flowers and animals to spice up the game, but their parents didn't appreciate her efforts. When the yordles insisted that she leave their land, she turned to a vibrant, magic place where those with unusual gifts were not just accepted but adored: the League of Legends.

As one of the youngest women to be tested by the College of Magic, she was discovered to possess a unique command over the powers of light. The young Lux viewed this as a great gift, something for her to embrace and use in the name of good. Realizing her unique skills, the Demacian military recruited and trained her in covert operations. She quickly became renowned for her daring achievements; the most dangerous of which found her deep in the chambers of the Noxian High Command.

His talent, though unrefined, promised to be one of Runeterra's greatest boons, but destiny plotted him another course; his sensitivity to the roiling tides of fate allowed other, unwelcome things to tug at his subconscious mind. In his dreams, where the veil of separation is thinnest, a sinister thing beckoned. For some time, Malzahar was able to resist its prodding solicitation, but with each passing night the voice grew louder, or perhaps deeper, until he could withstand the call no more. He ventured into the desert without supplies, drawn by the lure of a specious charm. His destination: a lost civilization to the east, known to ancient texts as Icathia. Few believed such a place ever existed, and those who did were certain that the sands had long since devoured whatever remained. When Malzahar's cracked feet finally failed him, he found himself kneeling at the base of a bizarre crumbling obelisk. Beyond it lay the alien geometry of a ruined city and the giant decaying idols of dark and horrific gods.

His once shifting visions of the future were replaced with the immutable promise of Valoran beset by creatures of the Void.

Like so many conflicts, this war split families. One side proclaimed themselves as beings of perfect order and justice, fighting to unite the world under their law and strong central governance. Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded ''fallen.'' Morgana was not innocent, having plumbed forgotten ways to gather forbidden might to become a powerful mistress of the black arts. This goal was driven by her obsession to defeat the general of the opposition's army - her sister, Kayle. While the two were in fact birth-sisters, Kayle struck the first blow by disowning any filial connection when Morgana refused to join her cause. Eventually, Morgana grew in power enough to not only reach, but challenge Kayle. As the time approached when the two would meet in what could be their final conflict, Morgana was suddenly summoned to Valoran. At first, Morgana made a deal with the League's summoners to fight in exchange for greater power. With the advent of Kayle into the League, Morgana now willingly fights in the League of Legends for the privilege of being able to destroy her sister again, and again, and again. She lies in wait for the day the bonds of the Institute of War no longer hold her, and on that day she plans to destroy Kayle once and for all and return home a hero.

Much of that world still bears the scars of past Runes Wars, especially the mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. The champion known as Nidalee was only a young girl travelling with her treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious disease. As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful innocence and a fortunate naivete caused her to appeal to the beasts of that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the dense wilds, evolving beyond both her human physiology and her feline affectation. On one pivotal day in her life, standing over the torn remnants of a Noxian squad of woodcutters, Nidalee chose to rejoin the so-called civilized world, to fight in the League of Legends so as to protect the vast woods from both Demacia and Noxus. Nidalee was taught to fight by her feline family, battling viciously with tooth and nail. Something in her feline ways may draw you to her, but remember that she is no pussycat.

Though Orianna had incredible talent for dancing, she was deeply fascinated by the champions of the League of Legends. This fascination compelled her to begin training to become such a champion. It is unfortunate that her sheltered, wide-eyed naivete led her to take unnecessary and dangerous chances which ultimately led to her tragic demise. Orianna's death shattered Corin, driving him into deep depression and an obsession with techmaturgy. He could not stand the void his daughter's death left in his life, so he decided to build a replacement - one that would complete Orianna's dream of joining the League. What was created is the clockwork killing machine that Corin named after his daughter. Knowing that she was destined to be a champion and seeing the way the times were changing, he created The Ball as her pet and protector. This nearly symbiotic creation uses a different type of techmaturgy, relying more heavily on electricity than clockwork. Orianna and The Ball now fight as Champions in the League of Legends, using her sometimes misguided morality as a compass. She tries in earnest to fit in with those around her. However, no matter how hard she tries, Orianna can never be human and there is always something unnerving and alien about her. Though she attempts social interaction with other champions in the League of Legends, there are few who can get past her exotic nature. To many, it's as if there's nothing inside, that Orianna is just a soulless clockwork shell - a dangerous and deadly one at that. However, all along she remains the perfect daughter in her father's eyes. ''Dance with me, my pet. Dance with me into oblivion.''

For most, pursuit of such knowledge is formalized in a college or university. The halls of traditional study were never for Ryze, however, who felt a more raw and primal connection to the magic of Runeterra than those who tried to teach him. He struck out on his own as a young man to discover what already called to him. Ryze traveled the world, seeking the wisdom of powerful hermits, witches, and shamans - anyone who had something to share beyond what was taught in the city-states of Valoran. When he had learned all he could from these fonts of wisdom, Ryze turned to seek the lost, forgotten, and forbidden knowledge in the world, delving into mystical worlds where others feared to tread. Ryze's tireless searching for magical knowledge led him to an ancient form of spellcraft known as thorn magic. This art required Ryze to tattoo spells on his body, permanently infusing his being with vast arcane power and finally fulfilling his need to bond with the mystical energies of Runeterra. His travels also led him to uncover the giant indestructible scroll he now carries on his back - the purpose of the inscribed spell remains a secret only Ryze knows. He claims it is an abomination - something that he must safeguard from the world. This has piqued the curiosity of many, though no one is sure how to separate the scroll from Ryze, or if it is possible to overcome the rogue mage to do so. Since then, Ryze has joined the League of Legends to study the magical creatures and powerful will-workers that fight there, in order to complete his exploration of mystical Runeterra.

Even in his youth, his talent for concocting potions far outstripped that of his peers, and he quickly distinguished himself from his less extraordinary chemist compatriots. It came as no surprise to anyone when he was selected for apprenticeship by the infamous Warwick, master apothecary on a lucrative retainer with the Noxian military during their campaign against Ionia. Within Warwick's laboratories, Singed toiled without end, rapidly absorbing every detail of his predecessor's deadly craft. Singed had little concern for the death and destruction that was the fruit of his labors. By the time the curse of lycanthropy descended to claim his master, Singed was poised and eager to make the transition from workhorse to innovator; he was ready to share his genius by bringing a new brand of suffering to the Ionian front. His zeal for progress was unquenchable, and when suitable test subjects proved to be in short supply, the eager chemist was often thought to turn his volatile mixtures on his own flesh. When the uneasy peace created by the League of Legends settled on the world, Singed journeyed to the one place where he was still able to showcase his beloved craft: the Institute of War. By this time he was barely even a man, his body both ruined and sustained by his ingenious craft.

As an infant, she was found abandoned on the doorstep of an Ionian adoption house, nestled atop an ancient instrument in an exquisite case of unknown origins. She was an unusually well-behaved child, always quiet and content. Her caretakers were sure she would find a home quickly, but it soon became apparent that what they mistook for uncommon geniality was actually an inability to speak or to produce any sound whatsoever. Sona remained at the adoption house until her teens, watching in hopeless silence as prospective adopters passed her by. During this time, the caretakers sold her unusual instrument to anxious collectors, hoping to build her a trust. For a myriad of bizarre and unexpected reasons, however, it would be returned, or simply appear again outside the house. When a wealthy Demacian woman named Lestara Buvelle learned of the instrument, she immediately embarked to Ionia. When the caretakers showcased the instrument for her, she rose wordlessly and explored the house, stopping outside Sona’s room. Without hesitation, Lestara adopted her and left a generous donation for the instrument. With Lestara’s guidance, Sona discovered a deep connection with the instrument which Lestara called an “etwahl.” In her hands, it played tones which stilled or quivered the hearts of those around her. Within months, she was headlining with the mysterious etwahl for sold-out audiences. She played as though plucking heartstrings, effortlessly manipulating the emotions of her listeners - all without a single written note. In secret, she discovered a potent and deadly use for her etwahl, using its vibrations to slice objects from a distance. She honed this discipline in private, mastering her gift. When she felt prepared, she went to the only place which could offer her a fitting recital: the League of Legends. “Her melody moves the soul, her silence sunders the body.” -Jericho Swain, after attending her concert [spotlight_embed_url] => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP0A3wLfFBg [role] => Support [defense_rating] => 2 [magic_rating] => 8 [attack_rating] => 5 [difficulty_rating] => 4 [damage_rating] => 2 [mobility_rating] => 1 [cc_rating] => 2 [toughness_rating] => 1 [utility_rating] => 2 [health] => 482 [health_increase] => 0 [mana] => 341 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 325 [armor] => 20.5 [armor_increase] => 0 [magic_resistance] => 30 [magic_resistance_increase] => 0 [attack_damage] => 50 [attack_damage_increase] => 0 [critical_strike] => 0 [critical_strike_increase] => 0 [health_regeneration] => 5.4 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0 [mana_regeneration] => 11.5 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 550 [attack_speed] => 0.644 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.896 [health_18] => 1791 [mana_18] => 1106 [movement_speed_18] => 325 [armor_18] => 76.6 [magic_resistance_18] => 38.5 [attack_damage_18] => 101 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 14.8 [mana_regeneration_18] => 18.3 [attack_range_18] => 550 [tip_playing_as] => * Make sure to tag your allies while Sona's auras are active, but avoid getting caught out by enemies. * Save Crescendo for the game-altering moment. * Well-times uses of Aria of Perseverance will grant you maximum survivability.

Refusing any notion of balance or restraint, Syndra wants only to retain control of her power, even if it means annihilating the authorities that seek to stop her. Throughout her youth in Ionia, Syndra's reckless use of magic terrified the elders of her village. They took her to a remote temple, leaving her in the care of an old mage. To Syndra's delight, the mage explained that the temple was a school - a place where she could develop her talents under his guidance. Though she learned much during her time there, Syndra no longer felt her power growing as it had in her youth. Her frustration grew, and she finally confronted her mentor, demanding an explanation. He revealed that he had dampened Syndra's magic, hoping to help her learn control and restraint. Accusing him of betrayal, she advanced on the mage, commanding him to lift the spell that was holding her back. He backed away, telling her that if she couldn't control herself, he would be forced to nullify Syndra's magic completely. Furious, she summoned her power and dashed the old man against the walls. With her mentor dead, Syndra felt the rush of her unbounded potential for the first time in years. Though she had won her freedom, she refused to return to the society that had tried to steal her gift. Instead, Syndra decided to claim her former prison as a stronghold. Pushing the boundaries of her magic, she tore the structure from its foundations and raised it into the sky.

Kept alive only by his quick wits and deft thievery, Talon scraped out a living in the seedy underbelly of Noxus. His mastery of the blade quickly marked him as a threat, and Noxian guilds sent assassins to him with a demand: join their ranks or be killed. He left the bodies of his pursuers dumped in Noxus' moat as his response. The assassination attempts grew increasingly dangerous until one assailant met Talon blade-for-blade in a match of strength. To his surprise, Talon was disarmed and facing down his executioner's sword when the assassin revealed himself to be General Du Couteau. The General offered Talon the choice between death at his hand, or life as an agent of the Noxian High Command. Talon chose life, on the condition that his service was to Du Couteau alone, for the only type of orders he could respect were from one he could not defeat. Talon remained in the shadows, carrying out secret missions on Du Couteau's orders that took him from the frigid lands of Freljord to the inner sanctums of Bandle City. When the general vanished, Talon considered reclaiming his freedom, but he had gained immense respect for Du Couteau after years in his service. He became obsessed with tracking down the general's whereabouts.

No matter how close the authorities came to catching him, the rogue always found a way to slip through their fingers. Despite his good fortune, he was never able to win that which he truly desired - the ability to control magic. When Twisted Fate learned of an experiment being conducted in Zaun that might help him with his wish, he did the only thing a gambler of his worth could do - he went all in and volunteered for the experiment. Conducted by the infamous Dr. Xavier Rath, Twisted Fate was told that the wager for such participation might be steep. He might change forever, or nothing might happen, or he might die horribly. Pain, however, was likely a part of the deal no matter the outcome. These were hardly the worst odds the gambler had faced; his hopes raised, Twisted Fate underwent the experiment, enduring what he must for a chance at his dream. Then, it ended - with seemingly no effect whatsoever. The gypsy rogue flew into a murderous rage, but, before he could strike down the team, he suddenly teleported himself miles away. With a sly grin, he realized his luck had won out yet again. He now brings his luck and rakish charm to the Institute of War, where he is the Champion of choice for many - especially the gambling kind. To this day, Twisted Fate has avoided his inevitable reunion with Dr. Rath. The Card Master knows, however, that a confrontation is coming.

The easygoing half-pint race, though fierce, is often regarded with some degree of joviality. Their high-pitched voices and naturally cute forms inspire something of a protective instinct in the larger races, or at least bring to mind images of children playing at being adults. every now and again, however, a yordles turns so bad that, even at its small stature, it strikes terror into the hearts of others. Veigar is such a twisted yordle. As a master of the magical black arts, as well as a corruptor of cosmic energy, he is one of the most powerful sorcerers on Valoran. As a child, Veigar was a normal yordle with one small exception - he had a deep curiosity for the world beyond Bandle City. The young yordle spent much of his time studying the rest of Valoran, and he jumped at the chance to join a business that traded with other major city-states. Unfortunately for both him and the world, a deal with Noxian trader turned into shady business and went bad; Veigar and his companions were subsequently set up to take the fall. Arrested by the authorities, he was imprisoned within the walls of Noxus for years. Such isolation is very dangerous for yordles - undoubtedly why his cruel jailers did such a thing - and Veigar was slowly driven mad. He eventually escaped, having become a twisted version of his former self. Instead of returning to his people and Bandle City, he sought tutelage from dark wizards across the land. With his demented will focused on one task, he quickly became a dangerous and powerful wizard in his own right. Now he seeks to end all conflict on Valoran by bringing all of the city-states to their knees, regardless of their affiliation. The League of Legends is the perfect tool to help him meet his ends - for now. Who says evil needs to come in a fearsome-looking package?

Blink. Blink, blink, blink. My eyes adjust and evaluate the landscape before me. There's a scurrying. I look down to find a small, white creature standing on its hind legs, sniffing at my body. It intrigues me. What use are you? I analyze the creature. A flash of hot magenta light, a dust pile where it was quivering. Mammalian... nocturnal... impeccable hearing. Incredibly weak. Yet they breed so prodigiously. "Hm," I mutter to myself. Hopefully there will be more complex things to be found; those fascinate me. Consume and learn: this is my purpose. The others who travel with me are primitive: kill and eat, kill and eat. I need to gather all available information - harvest any valuable resources. Eventually, we come upon a destroyed city, save for one pristine tower. It appears to be protected - or intentionally left standing. I deconstruct the composition of the ruins. My analysis suggests this habitat was a place of great magic; I'm not surprised it was a target of such destruction. There is something compelling about the tower. While the others are off scavenging, I enter the citadel. Cryptic instruments are strewn about. I examine one. Another flash of hot magenta light, another dust pile. Fascinating: a tool to alter their concept of time. Strange. Unprecedented. From the state of the tower, it seems the owner departed only recently. The artifacts left behind have existed in more than one time and place. Some are more complex than others; all are more impressive than anything I have seen on this plane. Clearly, the owner knows things I have not encountered in any of my travels. I require such knowledge. Leaving the tower, I find the others closing in on the entrance, ready to destroy it as they have destroyed everything else we have met. They will only get in the way of my goal. There are some things the Void should not consume indiscriminately. Without warning, I lash out a tentacle, its tip glowing white hot. Lightning arcs through the first creature, knocking it back. Its screams fade as I extend all three limbs, energy crackling between them, scorching the air where the streams meet. The other two run; they know what's coming. Must they always flee? I open my eye wide and unleash a beam of energy, following the escaping creatures. They are instantly reduced to ash. "Hmm. Void-native melting point is inconsistent," I note. But that is of no consequence. The hunger inside me grows. I am ravenous. Insatiable, as never before. I have glimpsed the ultimate knowledge. And I will have it.

He attended Zaun's prestigious College of Techmaturgy and led the team that constructed Blitzcrank - a scientific breakthrough that he expected to vault him to the top of his profession. Unfortunately his triumph was usurped by Professor Stanwick, who stole credit for developing Blitzcrank's sentience and later used Viktor's research to revive Urgot. Viktor's appeals for justice fell on deaf ears, and he sank into a deep depression. He withdrew from the College and barricaded himself in his private laboratory, cutting all human ties. There, in secret, he conceived a project for which nobody else could claim credit. Desiring both to revolutionize his field and to eliminate the jealous human emotions which festered inside him, he engineered parts to replace and improve his own body. When Viktor re-emerged, almost no trace of the original man remained. Not only had he supplanted the majority of his anatomy, but his personality had changed. His previous hope to better society was replaced by an obsession with what he called ''the glorious evolution.'' He saw himself as the patron and pioneer of Valoran's future - a future in which man would renounce his flesh in favor of superior hextech augmentations. Though Viktor's initial appeals were met with heavy skepticism, scientists were confounded by the sophistication of his machinery. By integrating his mind with techmaturgical devices, he had been able to drastically accelerate the progress of his research. His transformation had stripped him of what he perceived as his emotional weaknesses, but there was some lingering residue of resentment against the Professor. Viktor joined the League of Legends to pit his inventions against the greatest opponents Valoran could offer, and to correct any weaknesses or inefficiencies that remained.

This once-proud warrior has been disgraced by a false accusation and forced into a desperate fight for survival. With the world turned against him, he will do everything in his power to bring the guilty to justice and restore his honor. Formerly a brilliant pupil at a renowned Ionian sword school, Yasuo was the only student in a generation to master the legendary wind technique. Many believed he was destined to become a great hero. However, his fate was changed forever when Noxus invaded. Yasuo was charged with guarding an Ionian Elder, but, foolishly believing his blade alone could make the difference, he left his post to join the fray. By the time he returned, the Elder had been slain. Disgraced, Yasuo willingly turned himself in, prepared to pay for his failure with his life. He was shocked, however, to find himself accused not just of dereliction, but of the murder itself. Though confused and racked with guilt, he knew the assassin would go unpunished if he did not act. Yasuo raised his sword against the school and fought his way free, knowing his treason would turn all of Ionia against him. Left truly alone for the first time in his life, he set out to find the Elder's real killer. Yasuo spent the next several years wandering the land, seeking any clue that might lead him to the murderer. All the while, he was relentlessly hunted by his former allies, continually forced to fight or die. His mission drove him ever forward, until he was tracked down by the one foe he dreaded most – his own brother, Yone. Bound by a common code of honor, the two warriors bowed and drew their swords. Silently they circled one another under the moonlight. When they finally charged forward, Yone was no match for Yasuo; with a single flash of steel he cut his brother down. Yasuo dropped his weapon and rushed to Yone's side. Overcome with emotion, he demanded to know how his own kin could think him guilty. Yone spoke: “The Elder was killed by a wind technique. Who else could it be?” Understanding swept over Yasuo as he suddenly realized why he had been accused. He professed his innocence once more and begged his brother's forgiveness. Tears streamed down Yasuo's face as his brother passed in his arms. Yasuo buried Yone under the rising sun, but could take no time to mourn. Others would be after him before long. His brother's revelation had given Yasuo newfound purpose; he now had the clue that would lead to the true killer. Swearing an oath, he gathered his belongings and, with one last look at Yone's grave, set out with the wind at his back.

Zed now offers power to those who embrace knowledge of the shadows, and slays those who cling to ignorance. An orphan, Zed was taken in and trained by a great ninja master. Only one other student appeared to be Zed's equal - the master's son, Shen. It seemed Zed could never win the favor of the master, as every match between the rivals ended in a draw. Frustrated and jealous, he sought an advantage. The young ninja ventured into a sealed part of the clan's temple, where he found an ornate, foreboding box. Sensing the dark knowledge within, Zed knew he should not open it, but he peered inside nonetheless. In an instant, shadows touched his mind, revealing techniques that had long been hidden. Now armed with a secret edge, he challenged Shen, and this time he defeated the master's son. He expected praise and recognition in his moment of victory, but somehow the master knew Zed had used forbidden ways, and banished him. Humiliated, the young ninja wandered for years. His bitterness turned to ambition, and he began to train others in the style of the shadows. As his power grew, so did his circle of followers, but he knew that without the box, his technique would never be perfect. One day, Zed looked at his followers and saw that his students were now an army. He led them back to the temple to claim his prize. At the gates, he was surprised to find the old master waiting, receiving Zed and his disciples as if they were welcome guests. The old man laid his sword at Zed's feet, declaring that he had failed Zed as his master. By banishing his former student, the master had doomed Zed to the shadows, instead of leading him to the balanced path. The old man implored Zed to enter the temple, destroy the box, and lead his followers to balance. The dark ninja followed the master inside. Moments later, the assembled ninjas heard Zed cry out in pain. Mysteriously, he emerged unscathed, and threw the severed head of the master at Shen's feet. Screaming in rage, Zed commanded his followers to slaughter the master's students and seize the box. That day, the old ninja order fell. Though many students died, some escaped thanks to Shen's heroic efforts. Now the temple is a dark training ground for the Order of the Shadow. Zed rules as the Order's master, and his edict is simple: perfect one's technique, and kill all ninjas who refuse to embrace the shadows.

The professors dusted themselves off and sternly motioned for him to leave. Devastated, Ziggs prepared to return to Bandle City in shame. However, before he could leave, a group of Zaunite agents infiltrated the Academy and kidnapped the professors. The Piltover military tracked the captives to a Zaunite prison, but their weapons were incapable of destroying the fortified walls. Determined to outdo them, Ziggs began experimenting on a new kind of armament, and quickly realized that he could harness his accidental gift for demolition to save the captured yordles. Before long, Ziggs had created a line of powerful bombs he lovingly dubbed "hexplosives." With his new creations ready for their first trial, Ziggs traveled to Zaun and snuck into the prison compound. He launched a gigantic bomb at the prison and watched with glee as the explosion tore through the reinforced wall. Once the smoke had cleared, Ziggs scuttled into the facility, sending guards running with a hail of bombs. He rushed to the cell, blew the door off its hinges, and led the captive yordles to freedom. Upon returning to the Academy, the humbled professors recognized Ziggs with an honorary title - Dean of Demolitions - and proposed that he demonstrate this new form of yordle ingenuity in the League of Legends. Vindicated at last, Ziggs accepted the proposal, eager to bring his ever-expanding range of hexplosives to the greatest testing grounds in the world: the Fields of Justice. "Ziggs? Unpredictable, dangerous, yes yes. But quite brilliant!"

The area surrounding the temple is littered with the exsanguinated corpses of those who have mistakenly wandered too close. These served only to pique the curiosity of Vladimir, when - in his youth - he trekked through these mountains during his flight from Noxus. A day earlier, the teenaged Vladimir had brutally murdered two boys his age, for no better reason than to enjoy the intoxicating scarlet bloom that surged forth. He realized immediately that he would never be able to suppress his murderous desires, and if he remained in Noxus, his foul deeds were sure to catch up with him. Without hesitation, he abandoned the city-state, and journeyed south. The trail of bodies led him to a crumbling stone temple. Inside he found an aging monk who appraised him with eyes of pure crimson. Vladimir surprised the monk by returning the wicked gaze with zeal. Recognizing the boy's sinister craving, the monk taught Vladimir how to manipulate and control the fluid of life, often practicing on passing travelers. When it came time for Vladimir to learn the final lesson, the monk warned that failure would result in death. Vladimir did not fail, but success bore a grisly surprise. During the ritual, every drop of the monk's blood was drawn from his body and fused with Vladimir's, imbuing him with his master's magical essence, and that of every hemomancer before him. Left alone and suddenly without purpose, Vladimir resolved to return to Noxus, demanding enrolment in the League to prove the supremacy of his craft. When the Noxian High Command observed the gruesome fates which befell the palace guards, they elected to avail themselves of Vladimir's unsavory talents.

It perished long ago in a terrible Rune War, like most of the lands below the Great Barrier. Nevertheless, one man survived: a sorcerer named Zilean. Being obsessed with time, it was only fitting that he dwelled in the city's Clock Tower. As the havoc of the war neared his home, Zilean experimented with powerful temporal magic to divine all possible futures, hoping to discover a peaceful solution. But Zilean's enchantments affected his perception of the passage of time, and he was in a contemplative stasis when Urtistan was set upon by an entire phalanx of dark summoner-knights of unknown affiliation. By the time he realized his error, Urtistan was nothing more than smoldering debris. The summoners who were responsible for its destruction had wisely left the Clock Tower unharmed, both to avoid drawing Zilean's attention and to torment him for his oversight. Zilean barely had time to grieve the momentous loss before he learned that his dangerous research had a cruel side effect: chrono-displasia. This mystical disease granted him immortality, but detached his consciousness from its anchor in the present time. He now mentally drifts through time, from any point he has already lived to the present, unable to impact the events which unfold. The most torturous aspect of this curse is that Zilean sometimes experiences Urtistan as it once was and the rest of the time resides in its lonely ruins. Only the powerful summoning magic employed by members of the League of Legends has been able to treat this condition, and Zilean has joined in hopes of finding a cure, and thereafter a way to save his people.

Centuries ago, she and her kind dominated the Plague Lands, using thorns and vines to consume any animal that set foot in their territory. As the years passed, the animal population steadily died off. Food became increasingly scarce, and Zyra could only stand by helplessly as the last of her kin withered away. She thought she would perish alone, until the appearance of an unwary sorceress presented her with an opportunity for salvation. It was the first time in years Zyra had sensed a creature wander so close. Hunger drew her to the sorceress, but some other, deeper instinct compelled her. She enveloped the woman in thorns with ease, but as she savored this final meal, foreign memories invaded her thoughts. She saw great jungles of metal and stone where humans and animals thrived. Potent magic surged through her vines, and she devised an elegant but risky plan to survive. Using the woman's memories, Zyra poured her newfound magic into the creation of a human-shaped vessel. She didn't know what sort of world awaited her, but she had nothing left to lose. When Zyra opened her eyes, she was overwhelmed by the raw power ready at her fingertips. It wasn't until she noticed the shriveled remains of the plant she once was that she realized how vulnerable she had become. If this body died, there would be no network of vines to retreat through, no roots to regrow her...but she felt truly alive. She beheld the world for the first time as animals did, and a dark smile crept across her lips. She was reborn, and there was so much now within her grasp.

This once-proud warrior has been disgraced by a false accusation and forced into a desperate fight for survival. With the world turned against him, he will do everything in his power to bring the guilty to justice and restore his honor. Formerly a brilliant pupil at a renowned Ionian sword school, Yasuo was the only student in a generation to master the legendary wind technique. Many believed he was destined to become a great hero. However, his fate was changed forever when Noxus invaded. Yasuo was charged with guarding an Ionian Elder, but, foolishly believing his blade alone could make the difference, he left his post to join the fray. By the time he returned, the Elder had been slain. Disgraced, Yasuo willingly turned himself in, prepared to pay for his failure with his life. He was shocked, however, to find himself accused not just of dereliction, but of the murder itself. Though confused and racked with guilt, he knew the assassin would go unpunished if he did not act. Yasuo raised his sword against the school and fought his way free, knowing his treason would turn all of Ionia against him. Left truly alone for the first time in his life, he set out to find the Elder's real killer. Yasuo spent the next several years wandering the land, seeking any clue that might lead him to the murderer. All the while, he was relentlessly hunted by his former allies, continually forced to fight or die. His mission drove him ever forward, until he was tracked down by the one foe he dreaded most – his own brother, Yone. Bound by a common code of honor, the two warriors bowed and drew their swords. Silently they circled one another under the moonlight. When they finally charged forward, Yone was no match for Yasuo; with a single flash of steel he cut his brother down. Yasuo dropped his weapon and rushed to Yone's side. Overcome with emotion, he demanded to know how his own kin could think him guilty. Yone spoke: “The Elder was killed by a wind technique. Who else could it be?” Understanding swept over Yasuo as he suddenly realized why he had been accused. He professed his innocence once more and begged his brother's forgiveness. Tears streamed down Yasuo's face as his brother passed in his arms. Yasuo buried Yone under the rising sun, but could take no time to mourn. Others would be after him before long. His brother's revelation had given Yasuo newfound purpose; he now had the clue that would lead to the true killer. Swearing an oath, he gathered his belongings and, with one last look at Yone's grave, set out with the wind at his back.

Introduction

Disclaimer: This guide shows one style of play for Yasuo; I think that he's a flexible champion and there are other, equally viable styles you could use. This guide builds Yasuo as a sustained damage dealer and assassin.

Yasuo is one of the most powerful melee mid laners around right now, and is nearly always a monster in solo queue if player correctly.
One of the problems with Yasuo is that he is pretty hard to master (I don't care what you think, he is difficult to use properly), but if you can use him to his maximum potential, he can singlehandedly carry games. I build and play him as an assassin with good sustained damage, and high dueling power. He can reliably 2 shot carries and mages late game with his insane scaling (100% crit = 2.0 AD scaling on autos and Qs) and his early game is formidable, allowing you to play aggressive or passive to your heart's content.
I hope this guide can give you an idea of how I play him and help you destroy your lane.
DISCLAIMER: This guide is here to show HOW to play Yasuo, not just what to build on him.

Pros / Cons

Pros

+ Strong Early Game
+ Crazy Scaling into late game
+ Crits every time
+ Passive Shield helps nullify enemy harass
+ Very mobile around minions

Cons

- Difficult to master, you always have a lot of options
- Squishy
- Immobile when not in vicinity of minions
- Very item dependent. Awkward transition from 1st back to completed 1st item.
- Much like champions like Tryndamere and Yi, very feast or famine, you either win big or lose hard.

Runes

With the new rune system I think you have a lot of options in both keystones and secondaries. For your keystones, your best choices are gonna be Conqueror, Press the Attack, Lethal Tempo, or Electrocute. Of these, I think that Conqueror and Press the Attack are the best and roughly equally good, so if in doubt pick either of these and you're solid. I mentioned Lethal Tempo and Electrocute because I think they are viable choices for a specific playstyle, but I wouldn't recommend them if you're not already sure you want them.

Both PtA and Conq are so conducive to Yasuo's kit that you don't really need to think about them, but try to pay attention when laning to make sure your keystone is off CD when you trade.

For your secondaries, I picked what I think are the best choices above, but you can veer off the guide here for whatever suits your playstyle. Specifically, I think that Legend: Tenacity can be viably replaced with either of its alternatives, and you could replace Zombie Ward with Ravenous Hunter or Relentless Hunter if you feel confident you'll be picking up early kills to snowball. Triumph, Coup de Grace, and Sudden Impact are all heavily recommended though; I don't think you should swap these out.

Summoner Spells


Must have on pretty much all champions, hands down best summoner spell in the game, crazy high impact throughout ALL stages of the game. Don't even consider not taking this if you are playing seriously.

With Yasuo's formidable early game presence and very feast or famine style getting fed should be your priority, and ignite helps you do just that. This spell is pretty staple mid lane, so expect your lane opponent to be running Flash Ignite.

ADDITIONAL CHOICES:

The most popular alternative to Ignite. Could spend an entire section explaining this spell, but I'll leave that to some random top laner guide. Basically use it to roam.

A very viable replacement for ignite in some matchups. Preventing damage from your opponent can be just as valuable if not more than dealing damage to them, and this is specifically powerful against people who are very burst centric and their All-Ins aren't very ambiguous. You might wanna pick this against people like Katarina, Syndra, and other champions with heavily telegraphed all ins, but definitely consider taking this against Zed, because this completely guts his ult. Generally avoid this in blind pick where you don't know your match up. Mostly defensive but can be used offensively because of its slow.


Personally I don't run this but this is a defensive summoner spell that is a bit more flexible than exhaust, but is a bit less effective. In blind pick if you want a defensive summoner you should consider picking this over exhaust, although exhaust still has SOME offensive capabilities with its considerable slow.


If you're going against someone with a big CC they are reliant on, maybe consider this one. This summ is much better if your mechanics are sick, but overall I wouldn't recommend it for most players because you need fast reactions to make the most of it.

Items

Items are the most important thing to getting Yasuo all set up, as leveling his abilities honestly doesn't do very much (Aside from his ult, which gets a MASSIVE cooldown reduction per point invested in it). Here I will explain why I chose these items

Build #1



This item is essential on my Yasuo build. Yasuo uses this item really effectively, and it's normally more gold efficient than Statik Shiv or RFC, though they are viable alternatives. This should almost always be your first item if you're building assassin.

This is the next item I build on Yasuo, for the simple reason that it just increases his damage MASSIVELY. Yasuo loves crits, and this item delivers. The big downside is that you need 2 BF Swords to build this so it's gonna make backing awkward. Try to farm 1300 gold before every back once you've got PD so you can make progress on your IE.

This item gives Yasuo a nice MS boost, that can help escape ganks and get in range for that E. Any boots except for lucidity works, I just put Merc Treads because those are my favorites.

This is my go-to item for defensive stats on squishies. It gives both armor and health in spades, as well as having as FANTASTIC movespeed buff, and it even gives a slow and some damage to boot. It's a great defensive item that can just sit on its own and still give great protection, which can't be said about some of the other defensive items. Obviously only get this if you need the armor, there are other items to pick if you don't.
You probably want to get this item before boots/IE if you're losing, or after BT if you're winning.

I am surprised some people prefer Hydra over this item. Simply put this item just goes better with Yasuo's play style. He isn't the kind of Assassin that uses that autoattack reset from Hydra, he's the kind that benifits more from the BT shield. That said, BT, Maw of Malmortius, or Mercurial Scimitar are both reasonable choices for this spot because they both give very high AD boost as well as lifesteal. My preference is BT, but if the situation calls for it, pick one of the abovementioned alternatives.
BORK is also an option here. I never use this, but I can see how it would increase your duel potential greatly with the AS, and the active is GREAT, but IMO the stat distribution isn't quite right. That said, I can't recommend BORK over BT or Maw.
Mercurial Scimitar is also a good option, but it's a lot more situational than the other choices. Might want to take it as an extra item on top of one of the more standard Lifesteal items.

Sixth Item Options

Gives great damage, some lifesteal, and a unique passive that is fairly impactful on your survivability.

Good mix of damage and defense, but only really good if your primary threat is AP. Probably shouldn't get this if you also have Merc Scim.

Get one of this thing's upgrades to go against bruisers and tanks who armored up.

It's pretty good as a last or second to last item. It's better the more fed you are.
PRO TIP: If GA's revive passive is on cooldown, you can sell it and buy a more useful item while the cooldown will continue without you actually having the item (This mostly applies to full build + 2000 gold ultra late game)

Abilities

Passive - Way of the Wanderer
The secret ingredient to Yasuo's power. It is relatively straight forward, and has 2 parts.
Intent - Yasuo's crit chance is doubled, but his crits deal 10% reduced damaged (25% on Q)
Resolve - Yasuo's flow turns into a shield on taking damage from a champion or monster (Jungle Yasuo, new meta <Update: Somebody get a phone cause I called it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTP3PO-LGeQ>) that dissipates after 1 second and depletes all his flow. Requires filled flow bar.

Q - Steel Tempest
This is Yasuo's bread and butter.
He uses this to farm from relative safety, harass upclose but still out of melee range, and deal respectable harass at a very large distance with it's 3rd cast, as well as a knock up for setting up ganks and Last Breath. Use this whenever you can and capitalize on it's short cooldown. Remember to use this in synergy with E for AOE damage, as well as it's ability to proc on hit effects, like lifesteal and shiv. This can be used mid-ult for pretty nuts damage on landing.
It only procs on hit effects on the first target struck, and after patch 5.14 the 3rd Q (whirlwind) also procs on hit effects, albeit only to the first target as well.

W - Windwall
This move is notorious for distinguishing the good from the very good, and the very good from the best. It has the potential to completely shut down champions, making them utterly useless, but also can be a complete deadweight against some champions. Remember that the wall blocks as it expands out, so using it at point blank (as in it will pass through the enemy when fully extended) can still block if timed correctly.
A neat trick when at point blank range is to use it and then dash through the champion with E, It will block any projectiles used while it moves forward, you dodge any nonblockable skillshots, and it places you behind the windwall, in relative safety, but still in reach to Q the enemy and, depending on your original position, autoattack from behind the wall.
Also remember that you can auto attack through the wall, and using this correctly can singlehandedly win a lane.

Random Tips:
Using this on the other side of a wall briefly reveals it, allowing you to dash through a wall to a jungle monster if needed.
The wall still blocks when it's extending outwards, so with enough skill, pretty much any projectile can be blocked.
Windwall blocks Dragon and Baron AAs (Baron has other attacks that are unblockable, but most of those are dodgable (E helps as well)), and you can position it so that you can still attack from behind it. This can allow for easy solo drags, and helps a lot with 2 man barons.
E - Sweeping Blade
With it's laughably low cooldown you can use it whenever you want, however, it has a onhit timer that prevents you from dashing to a target twice in a certain time (Udyr bear stun, Rek'sai unburrow, Zed passive, etc.), so use it wisely.
This is your main engage and disengage tool in lane, and the source of your mobility in fights. Note that it's damage rises by 25% with each consequentive use up to 50%, which can be a lot level 1-2. It's speed scales with your bonus MS. It can be synergized with Q for AOE damage, and is especially useful for getting the knock up off for an ult on a slippery target.
Generally, if the target is around your max dash range Qing mid dash is safe, but up close dash Qs often don't hit. Spam this on minions against skillshot mages as they blow their CDs, then use it on them to engage.
Finally, this deals magic damage, which helps a bit when they start cloth armor.
If your opponent starts cloth armor, it may be better to max this before Q

R - Last Breath
His big playmaker aside from his W, his ult lets him dash to a target, suspends them and all nearby in the air for 1 second, and finally lands dealing high physical damage.
This only works on airborne targets, but they don't have to be from you, so this synergizes very well with champions like zyra, malphite, wukong, and rek'sai.
It also fills your flow bar and grants 40% armor pen on landing, which helps obliterate tanks and deal even more damage after using it. This is actually huge, it's pretty much a free Last Whisper that stacks with normal Last Whisper except it's better because (40% Armor pen > 35% Armor pen and Some AD)
This thing can turn around ganks into 1 v 2 double kills, trap a diving enemy under turret for a long *** time if you knock em up then use it at the last second, and decide entire team fights by potentially dealing a huge nuke to the entire backline, if not entire enemy team. The dash is also extremely useful, as it can help reach teammates that are behind walls or are just far away, because this thing has a huge range. Hits hard and helps hit hard after using it, and the kicker is that you can Q mid-ult, for even MOAR DAMAGE.
Generally in lane, getting your ult off means the enemy either has to flee or you win the fight, unless you had a huge disatvantage to begin with like very low health, or being hard countered (Kayle ult hurts)
Note that this works off of most displacements like trundle pillar and anivia wall, as well as rammus roll.

Combos and Strategies

There are a lot of combos you can do with Yasuo's kit, below are only a few of the combinations you can do.

In lane harass
This can be done in a lot of different ways, and rely on a lot of different variables.Image Courtesy of Zohn 07
Reverse the colors, obviously, for other side.

Low damage, low risk harass combo.
Q (Any minion, get a stack) - E (Enemy Caster Minion) - EQ (Enemy Champion) - AA - E (Enemy Melee Minion) - W (Block enemy projectiles as you back off, only cast if there are projectiles on you) - Q (Enemy Champion, whirlwind)
This simple combo lets you go in, deal damage, get out, and can be executed in a matter of 2.5 seconds, including engage and disengage. It also blocks any damage sent back at you in the form of projectiles, while your passive shield blocks any damage windwall doesn't block.
Effectively free damage, but requires all your cooldowns to be up, and enemies who are either mobile or just have really good reflexes can deal damage back. If you can get the first Q on a minion , you can then hit them with a whirlwind as they inevitably try to go through the windwall.
Execution
Q(Any Minion, build stack) - E (Minion) - Q (Enemy Champion) - AA - AA - Q (Whirlwind) - E - AA - Ignite - AA - Q - Walk Away
This can deal massive damage and can take enemies from 50-70 to 0 relatively quickly.
This only works on enemies who are low mobility and have to just awkwardly walk away from you (Especially on Ahri pre-6). Stringing in a Windwall is HIGHLY recommended, but the timing heavily relies on the opponent. The idea of this is to use a minion to gapclose, so you have your E to finish the opponent off when they build a bit of distance. If they are low and go under turret and you think you can finish them, don't hesitate and let them build distance, dive it while they are still relatively close. With some luck the enemy minions will be attacking you from outside the turret range and you can E to them to escape the turret once you've secured the kill.

It should not be necessary to mention that ulting whenever possible is recommended, and that the Qs that are on random minions are to build stacks, and you should wait till your Q is off cooldown (or about to be) to start the actual combo.

Teamfights

The idea in teamfights is to go to the backline while avoiding all damage, kill their squishies instantly, and then converge on the enemy front lines.
(Y) = You (YB) = Your Backline (YF) = Your Frontline (EF) = Enemy Frontline (EB) = Enemy Backline
Someone Has a knock up:
(YB) (Y) (YF) (EF) (EB)
This keeps you out of the way of things like Morgana binds, Thresh/Blitz hooks, Nid Spears, etc. while still in range to use your ult to cut straight to the backline when your Malph, Wukong, etc. knocks them up. The combo should be something like this.
R (Enemy Squishies) - Q - EQ (As they start to run away/dash away, this should kill em) - EQ (Enemy frontline) - Q and AA for clean up.
IMPORTANT : Whenever you feel threatened due to ranged damage incoming, windwall it. This is essential to getting your damage off and destroying the enemy team. You don't tank the damage, you just avoid it entirely. Remember, you can Q during your ult.

Just You with knock up
(YB) (YF) (EF) (EB)
Here you ARE the frontline, as you need to take matters into your own hands. You should have hopefully 2 stacks on your Q, but it can work with only 1 stack, you just have to string in a normal Q before the Whirlwind one (This can be tough as you have to execute this fast or die).
E (Enemy frontline [REPLACE WITH EQ IF 1 STACK]) - EQ (Enemy backline, should knockup) - R - Q (Enemy backline should be dead by now) - EQ (Enemy Frontline) - Clean up with Qs and AAs

It is essential here to block the frontline/backline's CC with your windwall in order to not die. You are diving the carries here, and it is quite possible for them to instantly focus you, remember, you move much faster than your team, they can't always follow up. Again, remember you can Q while ulting. This combo is a lot tougher and it's much easier to just have an ally with a knock up.

Tips and Tricks (Important)

Your auto-attack crits actually deal more damage than your Q crits after 333 AD, so remember to string in auto attacks in between Qs, this is ESSENTIAL to dealing any sustained damage whatsoever (If you don't want to deal any sustained damage, go play Zed, or Talon).

Windwall can easily be positioned in a way that lets you attack while staying safely behind the Windwall. Mastering this positioning is the difference between roflstomping your lane/game and losing the lane/game

You can, a lot of the time get in an extra autoattack as you knock a person up, and then ult, thus increasing your damage significantly (Remember, late game AAs > 'Q's, 'E's, AND EVEN YOUR ULT IS OFTEN WEAKER THAN AN AA)

Windwall blocks Baron and Dragon.

Both Thresh and Blitz Hook can be ulted, with Blitz you can wait for him to actually pull his target to him, but with Thresh you have to ult immediately (The window is almost nonexistant, but it's there). The Thresh hook thing applies to most environmental displacements (Anivia wall, Trundle Pillar), Bigger displacements that don't seem to knock up (Janna Ult can get an entire team knocked up easy, Shyvana ult can hit multiple people who are in a line), and even (I THINK) Dragon, can apply this when he rises to the air.

That said, be patient with knock ups that actually have a number tied to them (.5 seconds+), as ulting at the last second can maximize their time in the air (and their time stunned and thus unable to do anything. Don't rush your ult, it can be enticing to jump on the first knock up you see, but don't do something dumb)

Eing onto another Yasuo is hilarious when he has the same idea (Classic Samurai movie scene)
That said, waiting for a target to dash before Eing them can be the optimal way to go about it. It can even help you counter-juke an opponent because it automatically dashes in the direction they are going if the timing is right.

Your E speed scales with your MS, so if you are heavily slowed (Nasus I'm looking at you) expect your dashes to take much longer than usual. They are still faster than walking though, no matter how slowed.

Using your W and then Q rapidly can allow you to skip the Q animation and deal damage faster. This is especially helpful when you have a whirlwind, and you walk up to the opponent to get harass in, and they throw a projectile at you. Normally, you would throw out your whirlwind, get hit by the projectile, and give them a chance to just walk out of it, but if you WQ combo, you block their projectile and send out the whirlwind at the same time, effectively skipping the entire animation. This can throw people off and just makes it harder to dodge it, and late game there is actually just no cast time for the Q if you execute this, which can be VERY significant. DO NOT, however, use this if they are not using a projectile at you. In general, if you have good reflexes, only use windwall when a projectile is already on its way unless you go in for harass on something like a Ahri and expect counter-harass, or if you dive the carries in a teamfight and just windwall of the front-lines in anticipation of their CC.

Warding is something almost everybody tells you to do, and for good reason, but it is vital on Yasuo that you ward, because he just has a hard time getting away from ganks, especially when you consider that Zed and Leblanc are around, which helps you see just how immobile you are without any minions. Wards show you the enemy jungler in the early game, even for just a second, which can mean the difference between dying to a gank, escaping, or a double kill.
Remember to ward: The two bushes next to you lane (Totem will do for this), the bush behind your lane on the blue jungle (Looks like a 4 way crossroad), the bush in the middle of river close to your lane (River vision is always good, bot lane might do bot river for you).
If you feel threatened to go to those areas to ward due to your lack of escape and idea that the enemy team might already be there, or you're just too far away (Roaming, stealing enemy buffs) ask the jungler for help with warding nicely, and he might comply. It is your responsibility to keep the area around mid lane warded, you signed up for this when you called mid in champ select.

You can very easily solo drag if you're fed and pushed up, but if you make it obvious/don't clear enemy wards it can be a surefire way to die. If you bring your jungler you can take a lot less damage as well as have smite to secure it. Objective control is an easy way in general to get your teammates winning if you are fed.

Warding

I felt the need to add an entire chapter about this because I feel like ignoring these things is what's keeping a lot of players from realizing their full potential (Including me some games). Warding is so vital, and of course if you watch any educational league content on youtube you've probably heard this a million times, but there's a reason they stress it so much. Ever get ganked and feel like there was nothing you could have done to escape it, like you just can't push up and pressure your laner for fear of the jungler? WARDS.

I like to upgrade to blue trinket because you can have as many blue wards out as you want and they last indefinitely! Get blue trinket if no one else on your team has!
TL;DR
Ward or feed.

Discipline V.S. Instinct

This is more of an overall idea in League of Legends that is sometimes difficult to decide about. There are many scenarios where either can lead to success or failure, but it's important to remember when to stick to what you know and when to follow your instincts. Which to follow is decided by multiple variables.

Experience Experience is the #1 factor in whether to follow your instinct or what you know. The curve is kind of weird. When first starting out, you probably want to follow your instincts a lot, because this will lead to you making mistakes, and improving from them. It also prevents using tactics you don't understand. When you use a strategy, you should know how and why it works. Once you get comfortable with a champion's mechanics, when he is weak/strong, and when you can win a fight and when you can't. Now you should start incorporating more 'Discipline' into your play.
For example. You ult a LeBlanc during a close duel and she double hops under her turret. Your discipline in league tells you that she has a lot of escapes, and tower diving is very dangerous, so you should back away. Your instincts tell you to go for it. But just choosing one won't get you anywhere. Backing off leaves you with little reward for your cooldowns, health, and time you could have been CSing, while going in blindly will get you killed. You have to incorporate both. Use your knowledge of the game to realize that after a duel in which she used most of her abilities her damage cooldowns would be down and she just used her W and Ult so she is immobile, and use your instincts to flash in there at the right time and time your Qs and Es so that you can escape.

Overall, once you feel that you've truly mastered the champion and you think back to this guide, remember. A good player can blend Discipline and Instinct, a great player sees them as one.

TL;DR
Don't just go ham based on your instincts, use your knowledge of the game and logic to complement your instincts. Use your logic and game knowledge for planning (I don't mean sit there for a minute planning, I mean split second decision making right here), your instincts for adapting to something going wrong in the plan and/or executing your plan correctly
