Renata Glasc, League of Legends’ new support, will release in Patch 12.4 on Feburary 16. Here’s all of her lore and abilities.
Riot Games has just announced their next champion for League of Legends. As previously reported, her name is Renata Glasc. We now have a full rundown of all of her abilities.
Who is Renata Glasc? League of Legends’ newest support is from Zaun
In the lore, Renata’s a baroness from Zaun. She prides herself on her alchemical research, having come from the ashes of her childhood home with such. She’s become Zaun’s wealthiest chem-baron, a business magnate who built her power by tying everyone’s interests to her own. She is tied in the lore to Camille, Ekko, Viktor, and Zeri.
Riot seems to be putting an increased emphasis on champions from Zaun as of late, perhaps building off the success of Arcane. However, Riot has stated that she doesn’t have anything to do with Arcane’s time period, perhaps rising after the events of the show.
When will Renata Glasc release?
Renata Glasc will release in League of Legends patch 12.4, which is due to release February 16, 2022. This patch will include a slew of balance changes, as well as a mid-set update for Teamfight Tactics.
New League of Legends support Renata’s abilities
Renata focuses on debuffing her enemies, and forcing allies to deal more damage to them. Her ultimate, in particular, is really interesting. It causes enemy teams to go berserk, losing some control of their champion and forcing them to auto-attack anything around them. Even their own teammates. Folks will have to be careful with this however, because if the berserk enemies run out of targets, they’ll have increased attack speed and could eventually backfire and reverse a teamfight.
There are also benefits to movement speed, with some players remarking that she’s been given Chemtech Drake’s abilities after they removed it from the game.
Passive – Leverage
Renata Glasc’s basic attacks mark her enemies and deal bonus damage. Damage from Renata’s allies consumes the mark, dealing additional damage.
Q – Handshake
Renata Glasc sends out a missile from her robotic arm that roots the first enemy hit. She can reactivate the ability to throw the enemy in a target direction, damaging enemies hit and stunning them if the thrown target is a champion.
W – Bailout
Renata Glasc grants an allied champion or herself ramping Attack Speed and Move Speed toward enemies. If the ally gets a takedown on an enemy champion, the buff duration resets. If the ally would die while Bailout is still active, their health is set back to full but they begin burning to death over 3 seconds. The ally can stop the burn by getting a champion takedown before they die.
E – Loyalty Program
Renata Glasc sends out chemtech rockets that shield allies and damage and slow enemies they pass through. The rockets also apply their effects around her on cast and in an explosion at max range.
R (Ultimate) – Hostile Takeover
Renata Glasc sends out a cloud of chemicals that causes enemies to go Berserk, increasing their Attack Speed and forcing them to basic attack anything around them. Berserk enemies prioritize attacking their own allies, then neutral units, then Renata Glasc’s team, then Renata Glasc herself.
An early look at Renata Glasc’s skins
The debut skin to come with Renata Glasc is Admiral Renata. Taking full inspiration from airship motifs and military, this skin looks intimidating.
