Riot Games has announced Renata Glasc as the next champion to join the League of Legends roster.

Earlier today, Riot Games officially announced the addition of Renata Glasc to the League of Legends champion pool. Known as the Chem-Baroness, Renata Glasc is one of Zaun's weathliest.

"Renata Glasc rose from the ashes of her childhood home with nothing but her name and her parents’ alchemical research. In the decades since, she has become Zaun’s wealthiest chem-baron, a business magnate who built her power by tying everyone’s interests to her own. Work with her, and be rewarded beyond measure. Work against her, and live to regret it. But everyone comes to her side, eventually."

This new Support will be gracing League of Legends in Patch 12.4, bringing with her a number of new chemical-infused abilities to dominate the field.

Renata Glasc's passive, Leverage, allows basic attacks to mark enemies and deal bonus damage. Attacks from Renata’s allies consumes the mark, dealing some additional damage. One ability that might catch the attention of players is her 'R' attack, Hostile Takeover.

Hostile Takeover sends out a cloud of chemicals, inflicting a new status ailments for LoL - Berserk. Enemies inflicted with state have their Attack Speed increased, forcing them to attack anything in their sights. Berserk enemies prioritize attacking their own allies, then neutral units, then Renata Glasc's team, then Renata Glasc herself.

Renata's 'E' ability, Loyalty Program, sends out chemtech rockets that shield allies and damage and slow enemies they pass through. The rockets also apply their effects around her on cast and in an explosion at max range.

Renata Glasc's full abilities will no doubt make her an interesting play. Armed with missiles, chems, and buffs, fans will no doubt be ready to see how she plays out in the open.
