League of Legends’ upcoming new Support champion, Renata, has been revealed.

Last year, Riot Games originally planned to release five champions — one champion per role. However, according to Riot, the new ADC and support champion didn’t fit last year’s event, resulting in Riot shifting them for the early 2022 release instead.

Riot Games, however, has already released League’s fastest AD carry, Zeri. And after the Season 2022 teaser image, there have been many theories and speculations on who will be the upcoming Support champion in League of Legends.

Now, Riot has officially unveiled League of Legends’ new support champion for 2022, Renata Glasc.

Here’s everything you need to know about League of Legends 159th champion Renata.

Passive – Leverage

Renata Glasc’s basic attacks mark her enemies and deal bonus damage. Damage from Renata’s allies consumes the mark, dealing additional damage.

Q – Handshake

Renata Glasc sends out a missile from her robotic arm that roots the first enemy hit. She can reactivate the ability to throw the enemy in a target direction, damaging enemies hit and stunning them if the thrown target is a champion.

W – Bailout

Renata Glasc grants an allied champion or herself ramping Attack Speed and Move Speed toward enemies. If the ally gets a takedown on an enemy champion, the buff duration resets. If the ally would die while Bailout is still active, their health is set back to full but they begin burning to death over 3 seconds. The ally can stop the burn by getting a champion takedown before they die.

E – Loyalty Program

Renata Glasc sends out chemtech rockets that shield allies and damage and slow enemies they pass through. The rockets also apply their effects around her on cast and in an explosion at max range.

R – Hostile Takeover

Renata Glasc sends out a cloud of chemicals that causes enemies to go Berserk, increasing their Attack Speed and forcing them to basic attack anything around them. Berserk enemies prioritize attacking their own allies, then neutral units, then Renata Glasc’s team, then Renata Glasc herself.

Release Date

Renata is expected to make her debut in League of Legends patch 12.4, scheduled for Thursday, February 17, 2022.
