Zyra, League of Legends sweet 101st Champion is a tree hugger
Zyra seems to be the new Poison Ivy vegan type chick coming to League of Legends! She is rumored to be a plant mage and looks red hot! with a hit of shoulder and elegant impish smile, we are hoping more will be revaled by mid or late July to early August projected date for release.
Most would make a fuss about the 100th Milestone as a very special event, but Riot is going all out with its 101st according to the discussion over on the LoL forums, lead champion designer Ryan Scott, the new green-thumbed champion – rumored to be named Zyra – can use vegetation as a ranged weapon.
“I’m really stoked about champion 101, because I got to work much much more directly on it than I usually do and it’s an archetype I think we’ve needed,” Scott said. “I’ll….plant a little teaser for you. Hint: She’s not made of flesh.”
No date to expect the 101st champion to release, but the MOBA’s latest champ, Jayce, recently released on the test servers. Check out our coverage of him, Jayce, The Defender of Tomorrow Abilites Revealed and LOL’s latest skins: Three New Skins for League of Legends.
We can use another tree-hugger and I look forward to her. The concept art of Kyra is awesome and she looks wickedly fun. The player forums are going wild in throwing out concepts and a bed of activity in the new excitement for this special Champion.
Some fun posts incuded:
Press R, Zyra becomes immobile and you get a crosshair. You hover your crosshair(mouse) over something and click to fire vines through the earth to that spot repeatedly. In other words, Moba FPS mode. Thats right, Zyra is Call of Duty champion. by FrozenXylaphone
“…or have it suddenly turn into 1st person view from her perspective and run around rapid firing seeds at everything. Headshots deal double dmg” by HidingOverHere
to be added with “And get killstreaks too. 5 kills and she gets a carepackage that gives her a free random item.” by FrozenXylaphone
Zerglinator threw in, “Smartcasting Xerath.”
and “I prefer to think she turns into Biollante and turns the entire map into a extension of herself.” Rashidas
Fun to follow the thread on the public forum as fans speculate!
