Riot has just announced a new League of Legend champion named Kayn, a scythe-wielding melee champion. He is meant to be played as a jungler, shared Riot.
Kayn’s passive skill allows him to change between an assassin and a tank, which depends on the kind of enemy he kills. He can thus adapt his build depending on what his team needs. Killing a ranged champion can turn him into a Shadow Assassin that deals bonus magic damage when entering combat while killing a melee champion allows him to be a tank that gains spell vamp. Below is a video of his passive effect.
Apparently, Umbral Trespass, one of his skills, has some special interaction with other mobile champions but not much has been revealed. The reveal page notes of a special interaction with Shen’s ultimate as seen from the image below. However, the image doesn’t reveal much.
And here’s another video of Kayn in action.
Will Kayn become a popular pick in the professional scene? Only time will tell.
