Two sisters were born from the Aspect of Justice. Kayle, the Righteous, wields celestial might and purges lands of the guilty. Morgana, the Fallen, refused to forsake her people. She bound her wings and receded into shadow, pained by her sister’s choice. Two sisters born from Justice chose opposing paths. They bide their time waiting for the destined day when they cannot evade their other half.


MORGANA UPDATE

Split between her mortal and Celestial self but wholly opposed to the unyielding ideology of her twin sister, the dark enchantress has been visually updated to match her divine origin. Morgana has bound her wings by choice, reflecting her connection to humanity and our shared suffering, but her ultimate reveals her birthright. In addition, the Fallen’s shadowy spells have new animations and visual vibrancy. Already a powerful pick in both mid and bot lane, Morgana’s abilities remain the same—save for her ultimate, which now grants movespeed towards enemies to ensure they can’t escape their share of torment.

Passive: Divine Ascent


Kayle ascends through four forms before reaching her divine state.

Zealous (level 1): Kayle’s attacks grant stacking attack speed. At max stacks, Kayle becomes Exalted and gains movement speed towards enemies.

Aflame (level 6): When Kayle is Exalted, her attacks launch flaming waves dealing bonus magic damage.

Arisen (level 11): Kayle evolves into a fully ranged champion.

Transcendent (level 16): Kayle takes on her final form becoming permanently Exalted. Her flaming waves deal true damage.

Q: Radiant Blast


Kayle conjures a portal which shoots a flaming blade at an enemy, shredding armor and magic resist and slowing her target. This attack explodes to damage enemies next to the target as well.

W: Celestial Blessing


Kayle heals herself and a target ally, giving both a significant burst of movement speed.

E: Starfire Spellblade


Passive: Kayle’s basic attacks deal bonus damage which scales with both her ability power and attack damage.

Active: Kayle’s next basic attack is ranged and deals a portion of the target’s missing health as bonus magic damage. After ascending to Aflame, this attack damages enemies next to the target as well.

R: Divine Judgement


Kayle bestows invulnerability on herself or a target ally for a few seconds. While invulnerable, purifying swords fall in a circle around her target, damaging enemies in the area.


Playing As Kayle


As Kayle, you’ll smite the unjust with celestial powers, which scale higher each time you transform. Before you can wreak havoc on the guilty, play around your opponents and farm cautiously until you have your ultimate ability. In this early stage use Starfire Spellblade to keep enemies at bay and Radiant Blast to punish their over confidence. Soon your Divine Ascent transforms your ordinary abilities into obliterating vehicles of destruction.

Rally your team together and find groups of opponents who cannot escape Divine Judgement. Use Celestial Blessing if you or an ally struggle, or to close the distance on fleeing enemies. In your final form, your survivability and teamfight advantage swell into an overwhelming crusade, ending all enemies in your path.


Tips And Tricks

  • Rather than use Divine Judgement on yourself, consider protecting a tanky ally with a great engage. Let enemies blow their ultimates while your ally is invulnerable, then purge them in a storm of swords and fire.
  • The stages of your Divine Ascent give you huge power spikes throughout the game. Anticipate when you out-damage your opponent, and decimate them when you do.
  • While you have great solo potential, you’re at your strongest in teamfights. Damage to enemies near your target from Starfire Spellblade and Radiant Blast in combination with protective abilities safeguard your team and inflict devastating damage on enemies.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

I like the update to Kayle, even though I don't think she's gonna be that good unless they change how fast you ascend or become ranged or well, get waveclear.

I like the Morg change too. She'll get much better.

What I don't like is getting rid of the armor of Kayle. What possible reason for that is there? She looks much less flashy and more like a ****ty superhero than a badass masked armored angel now.

She used to be a warrior so she wore heavy armour, but now she's more of a godlike being, if not a literal goddess, so I guess she doesn't really need it anymore.

I've been messing with Kayle on PBE...she looks horribly weak. She's completely worthless early game since she's a fully melee champion before level 11, literally brings nothing to a fight. Her new Q does pretty much the same thing as her old Q except now it's a slow *** skillshot, that's just a net nerf. And late game sure her DPS is great but her ultimate now disarms her (!!), which completely defeats the point and removes the one thing that made old Kayle strong.

I don't think true damage is worth these hurdles, nothing is.
