New League of Legends Champion Camille is a Dueling Prowess!
Have you heard of it yet? If not, then I’m here to enlighten you with this new League of Legends champion, Camille the Steel Shadow.
So yeah, after initially teasing Camille last week in a comic, Riot Games unveiled her complete ability kit just this Monday.
Camille blends quick one-on-one proficiency, movement and support abilities. I bet she would be perfect for a solid solo lane and could be a huge aid in team fights.
“Camille is an elite operative who works to maintain order for Piltover’s established powers. It was her dedication to duty that led the Steel Shadow to transfigure her body into a hextech-powered death machine. When Camille’s tracking a target, she’s calm, relentless, and terribly precise,” according to League of Legends description of her.
Here is an overview of her abilities:
Passive: Adaptive Defenses
The basic attacks of Camille on champions grant a shield against the primary damage type of her opponents–and that’s what exactly makes her great at duels. The strength of the shield scales with her max HP, which enables her to be a very formidable opponent in a one-on-one situation.
Q: Precision Protocol
This basic attack slashes the enemy, which gives her physical damage and increased movement speed for a short time–a great BONUS! If you cast Precision Protocol quickly once again right before attacking, she gets an additional strike. If she continues to wait after casting her Q ability again, the second strike will create extra damage.
W: Tactical Sweep
Camille gathers energy. She blasts it forward in a cone and it deals physical damage to all targets hit. When enemies are caught in the sweep’s outer half, they will be greatly slowed and take bonus damage depending on their max HP, which heals Camille in the process. Boom!
E (First Cast): Hookshot
Camille performs a hookshot in the direction of the target. And if she strikes a wall, she will pull herself into it. After that, she will have a short window to cast Wall Dive.
E ( Second Cast): Wall Dive
Camille then dashes in the direction of her target, stops at the initial champion hit and stuns all enemies surrounding the area. But if she directly dashes into a champion, her range is increased. The result? She gains bonus attack speed!
R: Hextech Ultimatum
With this ability, Camille jumps onto her target champion’s and locks them into a hexagon. This allows her to deal with them 1v1 while other enemies are locked out of the zone. While in this state, Camille does bonus magic damage but it goes away after a short time or if canceled or if she leaves the hexagon.
Here’s Camille the Steel Shadow’s short gameplay:
Along with the revelation of Camille, Riot said that she’s a difficult champion to master and “noticeably less effective in the hands of an unpracticed player.” Her abilities show exactly what that means.
BUT, BUT don’t be discouraged by this, LoL gamers. All you need is a lot of…
Practice. Practice. Practice.
If you dedicate some time to master Camille’s abilities, then you’ll surely get there.
Who knows, Camille will be the next champion that will lead you to achieving PENTA KILL in the long run. Wohoo! Okay.
