Riot reveal the next League of Legends champion: Diana – the Scorn of the Moon


Things are starting to get very, very interesting in action-RTS land. As Valve reveal launch three new heroes into DOTA 2, Riot have begun to tease their next hero: Diana: the Scorn of the Moon.

And she’s got lore and everything.

The artwork released shows her brooding over a battle between Leona and a what looks like Diana. That would make sense: Leona is allied to the sun, while Diana clearly likes the night. And sometimes, the Day beats the Night.

If you’re expecting an assassin who sneaks around, think again. Riot’s flavour text suggests she won’t be skulking around in the shadows and brush: “Not all creatures of the night are the sort that lurk in the shadows,” say Riot. “A select few leap headlong into the fray, leaving enemies begging for sunshine.”

Speculation on the forums suggest she’ll be a full on brawer. We’ll know more soon.
