The newest champion coming to the hit game is Milio in League of Legends. Milio is a young boy with mastery over the fire element, hailing from the country of Ixtal. Ixtal hasn’t had much representation besides information from Qiyana’s lore, so Milio will provide us with some unique insights into the country.

Milio is set to be a Support character who uses fire manipulation to shield and support his allies. This guide will cover everything we know in League of Legends about Milio’s abilities, playstyle, and release date.

What is Milio’s playstyle in League of Legends?

After seeing his kit, it’s evident that Milio is designed for the bot lane support role. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him turn into a staple in competitive play. Milio is an excellent utility support whose strength lies in buffing his ADC.

The healing and extra auto-attack range can help turn bad ADC matchups into winnable ones. Pair this up with his ability to knock back enemies and remove crowd control, and you get the perfect support for an unstoppable ADC.

Overall Milio has an excellent kit with a bit of utility for every situation. This flexibility will put him up with the likes of Janna or Nami, and we’re excited to see what ADC pairing will work best with him.
