Sorry if I didn't get to your question - I'm sure the mechanics preview and such will answer your remaining questions. XD
Still waiting on that.


Still, I (probably many others) appreciate this pre-release briefing on the new champion. Seems interesting enough.

Hoping this'll break my "Singed is the only Tank I give two hoots about" mindset I've got.

Re-read everything Xyph has said so far about his physical appearance.

Yep. Another void Champion.
I'm thinking this. Not human, not creature. Def wouldn't release two yordles in a row.

This seems to be the case, seems like we finally have a Lovecraft-inspired tentacle champ. It seems to me that this may be the infamous "Kog'maw's Daddy" that was said to be in development many months ago.

Clues: Large, Aquatic,"lost", "ancient", all of those are characteristics of the Old Ones. Additionally, he is code-named Nautilus, which was a tentacled armored creature of the Precambrian era. Picture attached.

Q- Anchor Grapple
W- Water Shield
E- Ring of Tentacles from the ground keeping targets in
R- Water Torrent

He might be slow. He might have a hookshot to compensate.

Maybe.
Levitiah and Pudge had a son?

Yeah, Maokai is not viable at all. Neither is Singed. Or Amumu. Or Cho'Gath for that matter.

Xypherous once again blowing the community away with how much info he gives away but still keeps the new champ a secret.

The hookshot is going to be the anchor that he will wield, not a tentacle.
