Innate: Whenever Nilah kills a Minion icon.png minion, she and the nearest allied Champion icon.png champion gain an additional Experience icon.png 50% of the experience they would have lost from sharing.

Nilah Joy Unending.png

Innate: Whenever a nearby allied champion uses an ability to Heal power icon.png heal or Hybrid resistances icon.png shield either Nilah or themselves, they both receive a bonus amount equal to 7.5% of the healing or 15% of the shielding after a 0.5-second delay. Bonus shielding lasts as long as the shield that triggered the effect, up to a maximum duration of 4 seconds.

Info
  • Nilah will gain a portion of all healing and all shielding from nearby allies that activate either of the effects on themselves while she is within range of them.
    • The same applies to allies that grant Nilah a heal or shield; they gain a portion of the heal or shield given to her by them, even if the heal or shield affects both units.
  • Heal and shields granted by items, runes, and summoner spells will not trigger the increased amount.
  • The heal and shield increases do not trigger from their own heal or shield.
  • Nilah may still gain a shield from her allies' shields even if they are longer than 4 seconds, but the buff of the shield will only last for up to 4 seconds.
  • Nilah can receive a normal shield from nearby allies that gain physical or magic shields.

Against secondary non-champion targets, this is reduced to 33% AD for Minion icon.png minions and 10% AD for Monster icon.png monsters, and additionally executes minions left below Health icon.png 20 health. On-hit icon.png On-hit effects are applied only to the primary target.

Info
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
  • Formless Blade's active cast triggers call for help for dealing damage despite not being a targeted spell.(bug)
  • Applies Death Lotus.png area damage on the empowered attacks.

    Nilah is an ascetic warrior from a distant land, seeking the world's deadliest, most titanic opponents so that she might challenge and destroy them. Having won her power through an encounter with the long-imprisoned demon of joy, she has no emotions other than unceasing jubilation—a small price to pay for the vast strength she now possesses. Channeling the demon's liquid form into a blade of unparalleled might, she stands defiant against ancient threats long forgotten.
