Riot are teasing the upcoming Evelynn update
Riot are teasing the upcoming Evelynn update. In a video first released on the LoL Phillipines Facebook page, we got our first glimpse at Evelynn’s upcoming visual and gameplay rework.
Keep up to date with the latest changes with the League of Legends 7.19 patch notes.
There’s not much to go in the short video, but it’s an interesting starting point. For one thing, a lot of what makes Evelynn unique is staying. She’ll obviously retain her stealth mechanics, and her skills will continue to focus clawing and impaling her enemies. The video is titled ‘Agony’s Embrace’, which is the name of Evelynn’s current ultimate, suggesting that it will be staying in her kit, although I’d guess from the video that she might be getting some sort of suppress, or at least some harder crowd-control.
She’s also keeping her blue and purple colour scheme, although it’s slightly more muted than before, and her shocking pink hair is also getting a change. She’s also much more glowy, which suggests her skills might be getting a slightly more visual presence.
The official League of Legends Facebook page made the most of the announcement, giving us a further taste of the champion’s new kit in a photo captioned ‘Evelynn Rework!!!’.
The Evelynn update will probably hit in patch 7.20, but there’s a slight chance it gets pushed back until 7.21. Either way, we’ll update this post when we know more, and there’ll also be full details attached to the relevant patch notes post when it goes live.
