Esports News – Gamers continue to explore the capabilities and hidden tricks of Aphelios, the new League of Legends champion introduced just last week. But, expect Riot Games to deliver more updates as we are yet to see the new unnamed Ionian Juggernaught promised before. With data miners and theorists roaming the Internet, we may have found the name of this new champion through leaks.
Earlier in October, Riot Games lead champion producer Ryan ‘Reav3’ Mireles revealed the inclusion of two new champions for LoL’s champion roadmap, including a Juggernaut. It’s been seven years since the developer released a champion of this kind, so fans expect more innovative features and abilities.
On Riot’s official announcement, they teased what the new Juggernaut can do: “It’s been a while since we made a more straightforward, accessible juggernaut, with Darius being the last, so we felt it was time to add something new to that space. This new champion will thrive in the center of a brawl, laughing as they take hit after hit then furiously punching back, releasing all that stored aggression on their enemies’ faces. If you like letting your fists do the talking, getting into the heat of a pit fight, and smashing your opponents’ heads together, this may be just the champion for you.”
Since Aphelios is now live, another champion remains in the works and is expected to come out in January 2020. But before the big reveal happens, community blogs around the world found a leaked loot asset in the 9.24 PBE Update, which contains an item that belongs to a character named ‘Sett’.
One community blog named Surrender at 20 found an item called “Sett’s Calling Card” in the loot. It looks like a magic card with a wild, golden animal in the center. According to instructions read by the community members, it can be obtained by “impressing Sett”. The card is possibly one of his abilities.
The item is available for use on January 14th, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. PT, but fans believe Riot will release a teaser soon. They claim that a faint image of Sett can be seen on LoL’s 10th-anniversary video. From what they saw, this Sett seems like a huge guy.
