League of Legends Rell's Abilities and What to Expect

Passive - Break the Mold

Rell may attack slowly but she can temporarily steal a portion of her target’s Armor and Magic Resist to deal bonus damage based on the amount she has stolen. Also, Rell can siphon resistances from multiple different foes to grow more tanky than she usually is.

Q - Shattering Strike

Rell can stab forward and ahead with her lance, breaking any shields and damaging all enemies hit. The damage decreases after the first target is hit. When Rell has an ally bound with E - Attract and Repel, she and the ally can recover health for each champion hit by this ability.

W1 - Ferromancy: Crash Down

Rell can transform her mount into heavy armor, this means she gains a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or remounting. Upon landing, she knocks all enemies around her area. She can only cast this while mounted. Rell can also cast E - Attract and Repel and R - Magnet Storm during the transformation.

Rell has increased durability, low movement speed, and a movement speed cap while in armored mode. After the transformation, this ability is changed to Ferromancy: Mount Up.

W2 - Ferromancy: Mount Up

Rell can rush forward and turn her armor into a mount, which gains her a burst of movement speed. She can only cast this in armored form. During her next attack, she charges her target to deal bonus damage and then flips them over her shoulder.

Rell has increased movement speed while mounted. After this particular transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Crash Down.

E - Attract and Repel

Rell can magnetically attach a piece of armor to an allied champion, granting them bonus Armor and Magic Resist while nearby. Rell can also recast this spell to break binds and stun all enemies around and between her and her bound ally.

R - Magnet Storm

Rell can magnetically yank enemies toward her. She then creates a gravitational field around her, pulling nearby enemies in for a couple seconds. The field doesn't interrupt her enemies’ actions.
