A New Champion Has Arrived: Neeko, The Curious Chameleon
Posted 20th November 2018 By: ThisIsSam    142 Views
Who is she? That depends–who are you? A shapeshifter from a long-lost tribe of vastaya, Neeko watches the world with wide eyes and endless curiosity, always looking for something new to be. She may not seem dangerous at first glance, but keep a close eye on ther–with Neeko, things are never quite as they appear.
First impressions say that Neeko is probably a champion that works best in mid lane. Using her camouflage passive, you can trick your opponents into thinking you’re one of your allies. If you thought mirror matches are difficult, get ready as Neeko will be available to play in patch 8.24, and will be going up on the Public Beta Environment for testing soon.
Passive: Inherent Glamour – Neeko can disguise herself as an ally champion. Damaging or taking damage from enemy champions or casting either Blooming Burst or Tangle-Barbs breaks the illusion and increases the cooldown
Q: Blooming Burst – Neeko propels a seed into a target area, which blooms and damages enemies. If the burst kills an enemy or damages a champion or large monster, ti will bloom again up to two times.
- Passive: Every third basic attack resonates with spiritual energy, dealing bonus magic damage and briefly increasing Neeko’s movement speed.
- Active: Neeko briefly slips out of slight, becoming invincible, gaming movement speed, and sending a temporary clone of her current form sprinting in a chosen direction.
E: Tangle-Barbs – Neeko slings a magical spiral in a direction, damaging and briefly rooting enemies it passes through. The last champion hit is rotted longer. If Tangle-Barbs hits at least two enemies, it grows in size, speed, and root duration.
R: Pop Blossom – Neeko begins charging herself with spiritual essence. A moment later, she leaps into the air, gains a shield, and slows nearby enemies, releasing energy upon landing to massively damage and stun enemies in the area. When disguised by Inherent Glamour (Passive), enemies won’t see Neeko’s initial charge-up.
