REVEALED - JHIN, THE VIRUOSO ABILITIES PASSIVE: WHISPER http://news.cdn.leagueoflegends.com/public/images/pages/2016/january/jhin/video/Jhin_P.webm Jhin’s gun - Whisper - chambers four shots, the last of which always crits and applies extra damage based on a portion of his target’s missing health. After firing all four shots, Jhin takes a moment to reload. Jhin’s crits deal less damage than normal, and his attack speed doesn’t actually scale with attack speed. Instead, Jhin gains attack damage from any attack speed and crit chance he earns through itemization and runes, while crits give him a burst of movement based on his attack speed. Q: DANCING GRENADE http://news.cdn.leagueoflegends.com/public/images/pages/2016/january/jhin/video/Jhin_Q.webm Jhin throws a cannister at a nearby targeted enemy. After landing, the cannister bounces up to four times on other nearby enemies. Killing an enemy with Dancing Grenade causes the following bounces to deal extra damage. W: DEADLY FLOURISH http://news.cdn.leagueoflegends.com/public/images/pages/2016/january/jhin/video/Jhin_W.webm Passive: Enemy champions that have been struck by Jhin’s basic attacks, Captive Audience, or any allied damage are marked for a few seconds. Active: Jhin fires a massively long range shot that damages all enemy minions and the first enemy champion in a target direction. If the enemy champion he strikes has already been marked, they’re briefly rooted, while Jhin himself gains a burst of movement speed. E: CAPTIVE AUDIENCE http://news.cdn.leagueoflegends.com/public/images/pages/2016/january/jhin/video/Jhin_E.webm Jhin places a trap on the ground that turns invisible after arming. Enemy champions that walk over the trap trigger it, revealing and marking them with Deadly Flourish and creating a large slowing zone. After a brief pause, the trap detonates, damaging all enemies inside its explosion. R: CURTAIN CALL http://news.cdn.leagueoflegends.com/public/images/pages/2016/january/jhin/video/Jhin_R.webm Jhin fully assembles his weapon before taking aim in a target direction, revealing all marked targets in a huge area. He can then fire four rounds that stop at the first enemy champion struck, slowing them and dealing damage based on their missing health. Jhin’s fourth and final shot with Curtain Call deals massively increased damage and is guaranteed to crit. So after all the speculation he is finnaly done, he is revealed as an ADC and a quite different one at that. Huge range and damage with lower attack speed and Graves-like bullet system to compensate. Imo he will be very strong but hard to play apparenty and like every new champion you won't be able to play him in draft for awhile A mysterious video has been added to Zed's champion page and also his icon is updated with flower petals blowing by. (badass) There are refferences to ''Deadeye'' and ''Jhin'' in text viewer of the video and also hint at similar teasers with Garen, Vi and Sona. What do you guys think? New champion? Set of skins? UPDATE: Garen's icon has been updated on all champions list but not on his page. Garen and also Vi and Sona got the same treatment as Zed on the PBE, looks pretty creepy UPDATE: All teasers are now live. There is a teaser video called Mind of the virtuoso UPDATE: Some stories behind teasers appeared on the Riot Thailand pages. They are now removed but were translated by some redditors: Vi That bullet was burning hot... When it pierce through her body, although it doesn't rip the body apart like it should, it instead create a red hot, burning flame that is capable of burning away any weapons, rendering them unusable Everyone wished for her survival But that hope...never existed... Garen The moment which the gun sound echoes...piercing through the hearts of listeners The bullet penetrated through every object, even the armor of the mighty hero Creating crystals, sparking brightly, as charming as the stars At that moment, the hope of Demacia rots away... Sona The light that appeared was too bright to even glance at... The light flies slowly, eventually turning into a butterfly, spreading its wings, as it flies through the foggy smoke But when everything fades away, she, who is like the heart, also vanishes Also there are a few more teaser post on the Spanish board: Sona: 1 - You saw him? If so what did you think your design? (Lindo, ugly, half and half). 2 - The kit has something new in mechanical? (Unspecified obviously) Riot: 1- Yes! Er ... in a word, "creepy">.> 2- definitely playing in a very different way than any other. Defies some pretty basic ideas about how we expect behave champions! Sona: Spooky. 3 - I assume you will have specifical interactions for Garen, Sona, Vi and Zed Will others to other champions? 4 - we expect champions to "break" with the basics of the game more often or is something they have not yet been defined at all? Riot: 3- Look, considering our past champions have had many of these (especially Illaoi and Tahm Kench), it is reasonable to assume that a new champion will also have numerous special interactions. 4- It is a difficult question, because it is one of our goals which new champions feel different to the previous champions, so "break" schemes is something that will happen more often. However, it is not like that "break the mold" is a target for us. Rather, the space within such schemes is much more explored and therefore is more difficult to find new concepts! Sona was used for a name of the person who asked these questions. So Deadeye's or Jhin's powers might include plant growing, fiery, piercing, crystal making and light-based bullets. Seems like a pretty versatile champion lol Thoughts? UPDATE: Splash art: Some extra info about the champion: The champion is male. Uses mana. Does not have 3-stack passive. The champion's voice is described as unnerving and creepy by staff members. Features a projectile (that is currently bypassing Wind Wall) UPDATE: Some screenshots found floating around: The second one is supposed to be his ult. So from what I see he has huge range and an extra bar below his mana? Thoughts?
