League of Legends: Rell Build (Update 10.25), Abilities, Items, Runes, Counters, Tips And Tricks Guide

Let me Rell you about the new champion...

League of Legends have announced a brand new champion - Rell, The Iron Maiden.

The horseback riding champion was announced by Riot Games on Monday.

The announcement of the next champion comes shortly before the 10.24 update.

So what is she all about? This tanky support character will certainly shake things up a bit heading into the new season.

Here's what we know about the new champion.

Release Date

No release date has been confirmed yet, but it is confirmed that she will release with Patch 10.25 - which is due to arrive on the 9th December 2020.

Rell, The Iron Maiden

The product of brutal experimentation at the hands of the Black Rose, Rell is a defiant, living weapon determined to topple Noxus.

Her childhood was one of misery and horror, enduring unspeakable procedures to perfect and weaponize her magical control over metal... until she made a violent escape, killing many of her captors in the process.

Now branded as a criminal, Rell attacks Noxian soldiers on sight as she searches for survivors of her old “academy”, defending the meek while delivering merciless death to her former instructors.

This champion is related to Le Blanc and Samira.

Abilities

Passive - Break the Mould

Rell attacks very slowly but temporarily steals a portion of her target’s Armor and Magic Resist to deal bonus damage based on the amount stolen. Additionally, Rell can siphon resistances from multiple different foes to grow extremely tanky.

Q - Shattering Strike

Rell stabs forward with her lance, breaking any shields and damaging all enemies hit (damage decreases after the first target). If Rell has an ally bound with E - Attract and Repel, she and that ally recover health for each champion hit by this ability.

W1 - Ferromancy: Crash Down

(Can only cast while mounted) Rell leaps into the sky and transforms her mount into heavy armour, gaining a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or remounting. Upon landing, she knocks up all enemies around her. Rell can cast E - Attract and Repel and R - Magnet Storm during the transformation.

Rell has increased durability, low movement speed, and a movement speed cap while in armoured form. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Mount Up.

W2 - Ferromancy: Mount Up

(Can only cast while in armoured form) Rell rushes forward and transforms her armour into a mount, gaining a burst of movement speed. During her next attack, she charges her target to deal bonus damage and flip them over her shoulder.

Rell has increased movement speed while mounted. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Crash Down.

E - Attract and Repel

Rell magnetically binds a piece of her armor to a target allied champion, granting them bonus Armor and Magic Resist while nearby.

Rell can recast this spell to break the bind and stun all enemies around and between her and her bound ally.

R - Magnet Storm

Rell erupts in magnetic fury, yanking nearby enemies toward her. She then creates a gravitational field around her, pulling nearby enemies in for a few seconds. The field doesn't interrupt her enemies’ other actions.

Best Build

As we haven't had a chance to use the champion, its tough to understand fully what her best build will be.

Items such as Frozen Heart, Gargoyle Stoneplate, Thornmail, Warmog's Armor are no doubt good shouts.

Skins

No skins have been revealed other than what has been displayed on her cover art.
