League of Legends – Vex Champion Spotlight

Vex, the latest unenthusiastic champion to join the roster, is now available in Riot’s MOBA League of Legends. Vex was first teased during the recent Sentinels of Light event where she helped the Ruined King Viego. Now this gloomy Yordle is ready to show other bubbly heroes the meaning of misery… or whatever.

Check out the dev insights or Vex’s biography to find out more about the character!

“Ugh, ever face someone too happy? Too bubbly? Or just too… much? So annoying.”

  • Passive – Doom ‘n Gloom. Doom – Periodically, Vex becomes empowered by Doom, causing her next basic ability to interrupt dashes and Fear enemies.
    Gloom – Whenever a nearby enemy dashes or blinks, they become marked with Gloom. Vex’s next basic attack against a marked enemy detonates the mark, dealing bonus damage and refunding part of Doom’s cooldown.
  • Q – Mistral Bolt. Vex launches a wave forward, dealing magic damage to enemies it passes through. After a short delay, the wave accelerates but has reduced width. Mistral Bolt detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.
  • W – Personal Space. Vex gains a shield and emits a shockwave, dealing magic damage to enemies around her. Personal Space detonates Gloom on any marked enemies it hits.
  • E – Looming Darkness. Shadow flies to a location, increasing in size as it travels. On arriving, Shadow deals magic damage, slows, and marks enemies hit with Gloom.
  • R – Shadow Surge. Shadow flies forward, marking and dealing magic damage to the first enemy champion hit. Vex can then recast this ability to have Shadow pull her to the marked target, dealing additional magic damage. If the marked target dies within a short time of taking damage from Shadow Surge, Vex can cast Shadow Surge again within a few seconds.
