Behold, a new champion has arrived in League of Legends! Riot have revealed a brand new champion known as Camille, as well as a few details on her abilities, strengths and weaknesses.
Camille is an elite operative who’s sole purpose is to maintain the order for the established powers of Piltover. Her dedication to her duty led to her body being transfigured into hextech-powered death machine by the Steel Shadow. Boasting a calm nature and deadly precision, Camille has a series of unique abilities to offer. Her basic and passive attacks include Adaptive Defenses, which provides Camille with a shield against her opponents primary attacks, and Precision Protocol which slashes at the enemy to cause bonus damage. Camille gathers energy during Tactical Sweep before blasting it in a cone shape at surrounding enemies. Her Wall Dive and Hookshot techniques highlight her athleticism, and the Hextech Ultimatum briefly imprisons and knocks away nearby targets.
Overall, Camille appears to be a fighter who’s strengths lie in pursuing and eradicating single targets. She’s described as “often the better performer in a one-on-one dance” thanks to her high mobility. The key to controlling Camille is precision, making the most of each attack and timing it to the perfection that is to be expected from the Steel Shadow. These traits however mean that Camille is best in experienced hands. Moves such as the Hookshot often require a creative approach to be used to maximum effect.
Camille looks like she will be a popular choice among players with her wide range of techniques. Whether or not she will be subject to heavy nerfing remains to be seen. For more information on LoL’s brand new champion click here.
