Viego Release Date

Viego will hit the PBE very soon for testing, and he will be released on the Summoner’s Rift on Patch 11.2, Thursday, Jan 21, 2021.

Viego Abilities

Passive – Sovereign’s Domination

Viego can temporarily possess enemy champions he helps kill, healing for a portion of their max health. During possession, Viego’s items, attacks, and non-ultimate abilities become those of his slain enemies, and he gains a free cast of his own ultimate Heartbreaker. While possessing an enemy, Viego also gets bonus movement speed when moving toward enemy champions.

Q – Blade of the Ruined King

Passive: Viego’s attacks deal a percent of the target’s current health as bonus damage on-hit. When Viego attacks an enemy he recently hit with an ability, the attack strikes twice. The second strike siphons health from the target instead of dealing regular damage but still applies on-hit effects and can critically strike. This passive is maintained during possession.
Active: Viego stabs forward with his blade, damaging all enemies hit.

W – Spectral Maw

Viego charges up and then dashes forward, hurling a blast of mist that stuns and damages the first enemy hit. Stun duration and mist range increase with charge time, damage, and dash range don’t.

E – Harrowed Path

Viego spreads a wave of Black Mist around a nearby wall. While in the mist, Viego becomes Camouflaged and gains Attack Speed and Movement Speed.

R – Heartbreaker

Viego discards any bodies he is currently possessing and teleports forward, attacking the enemy champion in range with the lowest percent health and dealing bonus damage based on their missing health. Other enemies in range are knocked away.

Viego Champion Bio

Here are a few voice lines from Viego:

“No price is too great. No atrocity beyond my reach. For her… I will do anything.”

“The weight of this moment is so much more than you.”

Here’s Viego’s in-client bio:

“Once ruler of a long-lost kingdom, Viego perished over a thousand years ago when his attempt to bring his wife back from the dead triggered the magical catastrophe known as the Ruination. Transformed into a powerful, unliving wraith tortured by an obsessive longing for his centuries-dead queen, Viego now stands as the Ruined King, controlling the deadly Harrowings as he scours Runeterra for anything that might one day restore her, and destroying all in his path as the Black Mist pours endlessly from his cruel, broken heart.”
