Milio, The Gentle Flame, is the next champion to come to League of Legends as an Enchanter.

League of Legends is off and running in Season 13, as it has brought quite a number of changes to the game. All of these changes are geared to keep the player base engaged while keeping frustrations low. It is a daunting task as you never truly can achieve the perfect balance in a live game like this.

Regardless, Riot tries their best in order to keep the champions as balanced as possible. The last few patches have been a good indication of that. Patch 13.4 addressed the huge problem in the Support role as Riot tries to get Engage and Tank Supports back into the swing of things.

This year has not seen any new champions in League of Legends. The last champion to release was K’Sante in 2022. It’s great, considering Riot had plenty of time to work on a new champion this year. With all that said, Milio is coming to League of Legends as the brand-new enchanter champion.

Milio will be a champion that uses fire to heal through different mechanics. He travels with his “furnasita” and his “fuemigos” to fulfill his journey to join the Yun Tal in Ixtal to redeem his family. The idea behind the champion is that he can harness the power of fire to heal others using his “inner flame.”

It is a bold and refreshing idea to use something as destructive as fire to be a healing tool. Other fire-based champions like Annie and Brand are only known to be huge damage dealers, but Milio will change that in League of Legends.

Thus, here is everything we know of the 163rd champion of League of Legends, Milio, The Gentle Flame.
