Ambessa Medarda in League of Legends: Abilities, lore, release date, and more!

Ambessa Medarda, the fearsome warlord character from Riot Games’ and Netflix’s Arcane, will be coming to League of Legends in 2024.

In Arcane, the fearsome Ambessa Medarda is a Noxian warlord and stateswoman who is as ruthless as she is strong. Now the warrior woman of Noxus is coming to League of Legends as a champion in her own right in 2024. Here’s everything we know about Ambessa Medarda in LoL.

Everything to know about Ambessa Medarda in League of Legends (LoL)

Here’s everything we know about the Noxian Warlord in LoL right now:

Ambessa Medarda abilities

We currently don’t have any details about Ambessa Medarda’s abilities, but we can speculate based on her appearance in Arcane. In Arcane, Medarda is seen to use dual-wielded spiked punching daggers. But the warrior is also seen to use multiple weapons, and is depicted with a War Axe (a typical weapon on Noxus) and smaller blades. Her personal guard carry spear-like weapons that are similar to glaives or halberds, and the fact she’s a warlord may mean she will utilize those under her command in some way.

Ambessa Medarda is a brutal Warlord born and raised in Noxus. When she was 10 years old, he father brought her to a battlefield to scavenge for weapons, giving her a gold coin for each, exposing her to death at the tender age.

Medarda has two children which she tried to instill with her same values of strength and resilience. But both Kino, and his sister Mel, preferred pacifism and diplomacy, something which she was deeply resentful of.

In Arcane, she’s seen manipulating both Mel and Jayce into trying to aid Noxus in their upcoming war. However, Mel refuses and betrays her, much to her chagrin. 

It’s unknown if we’ll see an Arcana-era Ambessa Medarda in LoL, or perhaps something from her younger days. However, we’d love to see the older, more battle-scarred version of this character in-game.

Ambessa Medarda Release Date

It’s unknown when the Champion will be release in League of Legends. However the Champion is slated for a 2024 release. With LoL’s next Champion being Smolder, the tiny dragon, in February, we expect to see Medarda get a later release, perhaps towards the latter half of the year. Stay tuned for more info!
