At Riot Games a big part of our corporate culture is breaking down barriers through innovation. And, while weâ€™re on the subject, this seems like as good a time as any to introduce our latest champion. Meet Xerath, the Magus Ascendant. Previously one of the most powerful mages in Valoran, Xerathâ€™s learned the hard way just what sort of trouble accepting constraints â€“ in this case a gigantic, enchanted sarcophagus â€“ can get you into. Of course, even a chained Magus Ascendant is somebody you want to avoid underestimating.
