Riot Games has now unveiled the full rundown of new League of Legends champion Zeri’s abilities. Known as The Spark of Zaun, Zeri’s a marksman champ all about “electric magic”, which she uses to charge both herself and the gun she crafted from scratch, and a “lightning-fast approach to life”, as per her short bio. We’ve seen her backstory and a champion trailer emerge this week, giving us a flavour of how she’ll play, but now we can put all that into context with a good look at her ability kit.
Zeri’s Passive is Living Battery, which grants her move speed whenever she receives a shield. Damaging an enemy shield will let her absorb its energy, which then shields her. Her Q, Burst Fire, meanwhile, has passive and active elements.
The former has her basic damage deal magic damage, it scales with ability power (AP), and is treated as an ability. “Moving and casting Burst Fire stores up energy in Zeri’s Sparkpack,” the ability explainer says. “When fully charged, her next basic attack will slow and deal bonus damage.” The active element of her Q shoots a burst of seven rounds that dish out physical damage to the first enemy they hit. Burst Fire scales with attack damage (AD) and is treated as an attack, with the first round shot applying on-hit effects. The cooldown for this is the same as the champ’s basic attack timer.
