Riot Games has officially revealed a new Champion for League of Legends named Jhin the Virtuoso.
Jhin is the game’s “slowest marksman yet,” but Riot says when the marksman gets someone in his sights and catches them off-guard, there’s not much that would save them from an “inevitable, perfect death.”
Since Jhin is a “different kind of marksman” and with his low attack speed players will often see him “pushed under tower, and have to fire off his shots to last hit instead of harass.”
Jhin’s abilities are:
Jhin’s gun – Whisper – chambers four shots, the last of which always crits and applies extra damage based on a portion of his target’s missing health. After firing all four shots, Jhin takes a moment to reload.
Jhin’s crits deal less damage than normal, and his attack speed doesn’t actually scale with attack speed. Instead, Jhin gains attack damage from any attack speed and crit chance he earns through itemization and runes, while crits give him a burst of movement based on his attack speed.
Q: DANCING GRENADE
Jhin throws a cannister at a nearby targeted enemy. After landing, the cannister bounces up to four times on other nearby enemies. Killing an enemy with Dancing Grenade causes the following bounces to deal extra damage.
W: DEADLY FLOURISH
Passive: Enemy champions that have been struck by Jhin’s basic attacks, Captive Audience, or any allied damage are marked for a few seconds.
Active: Jhin fires a massively long range shot that damages all enemy minions and the first enemy champion in a target direction. If the enemy champion he strikes has already been marked, they’re briefly rooted, while Jhin himself gains a burst of movement speed.
