League’s dreamiest champion is coming soon in Patch 10.15. Lilia is a shy magical fawn jungler who is half deer and half-human. She was born from a tree known as “The Dreaming Tree” in the mysterious Garden of Forgetting. However, as war ravages the land of Ionia, Lilia finds that her beloved tree is slowly dying.
After an encounter with humans trying to harm the Dreaming Tree, Lilia put them to sleep, only to find that their dreams healed the tree. Realizing this, Lilia now is on a quest to gather dreams for the Dreaming Tree.
Passive – Dream-Laden Bough
Lillia’s abilities apply Dream Dust, dealing a portion of the target’s maximum health as magic damage over a duration.
Q – Blooming Blows
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. Lillia gains stacking movement speed whenever she hits a target with a skill.
W – Watch Out! Eep!
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
E – Swirlseed
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 terrain.
R – Lilting Lullaby
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 will take additional magic damage.
For a champion released in 2020, her kit seems fairly simple and straightforward. However, don’t be fooled. Her kit is made for teamfights and how you use your abilities can easily fool your opponents.
Her passive in combination with any of her abilities give a surprising amount of damage. It doesn’t seem like much at first but the large AOE Q and ult with her passive deals a lot of damage to a large teamfight area and causes those affected by her passive to fall asleep.
While her enemies are asleep, dodging her W becomes impossible. Upon waking up, Lilia’s enemies will take even more additional magic damage. That is if they ever wake up at all.
If Lilia hits anyone with her Q, she gains a movement speed boost, making it easy for her to weave in and out of the fight after she has cast her abilities.
Lilia’s E is probably the most interesting ability in her kit as it keeps going on until it hits an enemy or a terrain. In a way, this ability is actually global. If Lilia’s aim is true, she can cast this ability from the river to the bottom lane while actually heading towards the midlane for a gank.
Lilia will definitely be a great utility jungler for any team comp that lacks CC. Her ultimate’s AOE sleep can be devastating and is probably the only CC you will ever need to win the team fight. Her kit is clean and simple, which makes her a champion that is easy to learn but difficult to master.
