Hey guys! Today I’m going to talk about Akshan, the new League of Legends champion, to be precise, the 156th champion to come to the Rift. You might make a typo or two typing his name, by the way, don’t stress about it, the name is really weird. The correct name is Akshan and not Ashkan. Riot Games first teased him on June 21st, 2021.
Season 11 has been all about the Ruination, a doomsday event in Runeterra sparked by Viego. Virgo, the Ruined King is desecrating everything with his darkness in order to please his lost wife, Isolde. In the process, he consumes regions like Zaun and Demacia by using his strong Black Mist magic. Sentinels of Light are opposing him, the most popular members are Lucian, Senna, and Graves. Akshan is going to join them in the fight with this new patch.
Akshan's passive allows him to either deal more damage or gain movement speed, his Q is a Sivir like boomerang that gains range when hitting enemies, his W allows him to become a hunter for the slayers of his allies, his E allows him to hook himself to the nearest terrain and fire during a swing, and lastly his ultimate channels power and bursts down an enemy.
Without further ado, let's dig in to his abilities!
Every three hits from Akshan’s attacks and damaging abilities deals a burst of physical damage. If the target was a champion, Akshan also gains a shield.
After attacking, Akshan fires a second attack that deals reduced physical damage. The second shot can be canceled like a regular basic attack. If Akshan cancels the second shot, he gains a burst of move speed.
Akshan throws a boomerang that deals physical damage and reveals enemies hit, extending its range each time it hits an enemy. Enemies can be hit once as the boomerang goes out and once as it returns.
Passive: When enemy champions kill one of Akshan’s allies, they’re marked as Scoundrels. When Akshan gets a takedown on a Scoundrel, he gains bonus gold, all allies killed by the Scoundrel are resurrected at their base, and Scoundrel status is removed from all other enemies.
Active: Akshan becomes camouflaged for a short duration, or indefinitely while near terrain. During this time, Akshan can see trails leading toward Scoundrels and gains movement speed and mana regeneration while moving toward them.
Akshan fires a hook shot that embeds in the first terrain hit. While embedded, he can recast to swing around the terrain in the cast direction, firing physical damage bullets at the nearest enemy while swinging. While swinging, he can recast again to jump off in the direction of the cursor and fire a final shot.
Heroic Swing’s cooldown resets when Akshan earns a takedown on an enemy champion.
Akshan locks onto an enemy champion and begins channeling power into his gun to store bullets. At the end of the duration or after recasting, Akshan unleashes the stored bullets, each dealing physical damage based on missing health to the first minion, champion, or structure hit.
Akshan can move normally and cast Heroic Swing while channeling and firing Comeuppance.
