Taking damage from enemy Champion icon.png champions, or casting either Blooming Burst Blooming Burst or Tangle-Barbs Tangle-Barbs or performing Pop Blossom's Pop Blossom's leap breaks the illusion and puts Inherent Glamour on full Cooldown icon.png cooldown.

    • Secondary resource - e.g. mana, energy or none at all (original's current amount becomes her apparent maximum)
    • Stats
    • Buffs and debuffs with their respective icons and VFX/SFX (there are exceptions)

    Original
    RP 975
    05.12.2018
    Hailing from a long lost tribe of vastaya, Neeko can blend into any crowd by borrowing the appearances of others, even absorbing something of their emotional state to tell friend from foe in an instant. No one is ever sure where—or who—Neeko might be, but those who intend to do her harm will soon witness her true colors revealed, and feel the full power of her primordial spirit magic unleashed upon them.
