Lillia, who sports a Scottish accent, is a centaur and forest guardian. According to the teaser, the tree at the center of her forest is dying, and Lillia must venture out into the world to find a way to save it.

Riot Games is positioning Lillia as a jungler. She is expected to hit the Public Beta Environment later this week as part of the League of Legends Patch 10.14 PBE cycle. See her abilities below.

Lillia Abilities

  • Dream-Laden Bough (Passive): Lillia's abilities apply Dream Dust, dealing a portion of the taget's maximum health as magic damage over a duration.
  • Blooming Blows (Q): Lillia swings her branch in the air and deals magic damage to nearby enemies, dealing true damage to those at the outer edge of the circle. When she successfully lands the attack, Lillia also gets movement speed.
  • Watch Out! Eep! (W): Lillia winds up for a huge strike with her branch, dealing magic damage to enemies. Enemies at the center of the impact receive more damage.
  • Swirlseed (E): Lillia lobs a Swirlseed overhead, dealing Magic damage to enemies and slowing them for a duration. If Lillia’s Swirlseed misses, it’ll continue to roll until it hits an enemy or collides with the terrain.
  • Lilting Lullaby (R): Lillia casts a lullaby over her enemies and those affected by her Dream Dust become increasingly slowed before falling asleep for a duration of time. When awakened by damage, enemies take additional magic damage.
