Demacia Needs Heroes

By Michael 'IronStylus' Maurino and Devon 'Runaan' Giehl[1]

They are the legions of blue and gold. They are the beacons of justice. They bear the standard. They lead the charge.

Demacia has always stood a stalwart sentinel against darkness and evil, but the nation faces a world of new and terrible threats. They wield the sword and spear, marching against their foes in mighty numbers, but can an army catch an assassin? Can numbers alone hold back spells woven in shadow and flame? With such vicious forces bearing down upon her doorstep, how will Demacia endure?

The answer is simple: a new champion approaches.

She She is a new kind of hero, one of new mind and new method. One who can go where armies cannot reach, where swords cannot clash.

This is her story. Her worth will be tested, her ways will be questioned, but she will forge ahead. Honor guides her path. Justice steadies her aim. Valor Valor is the only ally she needs.

Demacian justice does not cower in the face of growing darkness. Demacian justice does not bow its head to the tyranny of cruel nations. Demacian justice does not flinch when challenged by overwhelming odds and forces unimaginable.

No - as evil casts it shadow over Valoran, Demacian justice rises above it. Embracing the new and the old, with vigilance and honor, Demacian justice takes wing.

Hand to the ground. Eyes to the sky. Listening, watching, quick strides towards an unknown target. The forests stretch out before them. The wind at their backs.

"Brought to justice", but questions remain. If not Talon Talon, who? If not Noxus, what? Memories, victories, and battles still to be fought. The forest and fields stretch out before them. Looking towards the future, taking flight, the wings of Demacia spread wide.

Quinn and Valor, Demacia's Wings, Revealed

By NeeksNaman[2]

Quinn Quinn and Valor Valor, Demacia's Wings, will be swooping onto the Fields of Justice in the upcoming patch. The most comprehensive duo to grace League of Legends yet, Quinn and Valor work in tandem to punish their opponents through agile and precise attacks.

Harrier

Valor periodically marks enemies as Vulnerable. Quinn's first attack against Vulnerable targets will deal bonus physical damage.

Blinding Assault

Quinn sends Valor forth in a straight line skillshot. Valor stops at the first enemy struck, damaging and briefly Blind icon.png blinding all nearby enemies.

Heightened Senses
Heightened Senses.png
  • Passive: Attacking a Vulnerable target will increase Quinn's Attack Speed for a few seconds.
  • Active: Valor rushes to the skies, Sight icon.png revealing a large area around Quinn, including all brush and non-stealthed units.
  • Tag Team Tag Team:
    • Passive: Valor gains a large amount of Attack Speed permanently.
    • Active: Valor Sight icon.png reveals a large area around him, including brush and non-stealthed units.

Vault

Quinn dashes to an enemy, dealing damage and Slow icon.png slowing them briefly. She then kicks Airborne icon.png back off her target, landing near her maximum attack range.

  • Tag Team Tag Team: Valor dashes to an enemy, damaging and Slow icon.png slowing them for a brief time.

Tag Team

  • First Cast: Quinn leaps away from the battlefield and allows Valor to take her place briefly. Valor functions as a mobile melee attacker and gains a huge Movement Speed bonus when out of combat. This bonus is decreased gradually to a smaller value when in combat.
  • Second Cast (Skystrike Skystrike): Valor flies from the battlefield, allowing Quinn to return in a hail of bolts that damage all nearby enemies. Damage is increased based on how much health targets are missing. If Tag Team is not cast a second time, Skystrike is cast automatically once Tag Team ends.

Quinn and Valor's combined prowess makes them a highly mobile carry combo combo. During the laning stage, the passive effects from Harrier Harrier and Heightened Senses Heightened Senses make Quinn an excellent last-hitter, and raises the chances of the duo securing kills against enemy champions. Quinn and Valor also enjoy a range of defensive abilities: Quinn can activate Heightened Senses Heightened Senses to check for approaching junglers, while Vault Vault ensures Quinn can easily maintain safe distance when enemies come in for the kill. If an opponent is still able to close in, the blind from Blinding Assault Blinding Assault can briefly neutralize the enemy and allow for a hasty retreat.

Quinn and Valor are also highly capable when assisting friendly ganks. The slow from Vault Vault makes their target susceptible to skillshots, and grants valuable time to secure a kill before your enemy can escape. The best Quinn and Valor players can even use smart positioning and timing with Vault Vault to launch Quinn over terrain. Quinn and Valor also excel at chasing down fleeing enemies. Activating Heightened Senses Heightened Senses gives vision across terrain and into brush, allowing the duo to close in on enemies attempting to juke. Meanwhile, the speed bonus from Tag Team Tag Team helps Valor hunt down retreating prey before Quinn returns to Skystrike Skystrike for the killing blow.

The nature of Quinn and Valor's play changes fundamentally once you gain access to Tag Team Tag Team. While still a disruptive ranged duo, Tag Team Tag Team temporarily turns Valor into a melee monster, perfectly poised for pursuing wounded enemies and cleaning up team fights. As a lengthy buff, Tag Team Tag Team affords Valor enough time to zip between lanes to defend or split push as needed. The long duration also means Valor can fully disengage from a team fight, reposition and heal up if needed, and re-enter the fight once the conditions are more favorable.

Quinn and Valor operate as an extremely powerful and mobile team, perfect for new players and veterans looking to carry in League of Legends!

2016 Season Update

We're turning Quinn Quinn into League's speediest champion. No-one counters a split push as fast as Demacia's Wings.[3]

Blinding Assault Blinding Assault no longer blinds (so uh... that's going to need a rename) but its cooldown is reduced whenever Quinn attacks enemies turned Vulnerable Vulnerable by Valor Valor. Next up, we're turning Quinn's ult ult into a toggle, giving Demacia's Wings the ability to move. Most champions rely on Teleport Teleport to safely stray from their team, but League's speediest champion can move about freely and split push - or counter a split push - anywhere on the map without needing summoner spells.

Harrier

Every few seconds, Valor marks a nearby enemy as Vulnerable, Sight icon.png revealing them for a few seconds. If Quinn hits the vulnerable target, she'll deal bonus damage. Harrier's cooldown scales with critical strike chance.

Aerial Assault

Valor flies in a line, stopping at the first enemy hit and dealing damage to all nearby enemies. The primary target is marked as Vulnerable Vulnerable. If Aerial Assault kills a unit, half the cooldown is refunded.

Heightened Senses

  • Active: Valor Sight icon.png reveals a large area around Quinn.

Vault
