Riot Games has finally revealed the masked assassin Yone and here’s everything you need to know.

A couple of months earlier Riot introduced the 2020 champion roadmap featuring a dreamy jungler Lillia, a masked assassin, and a thrill-seeking marksman. Lillia was released on patch 10.15 and as Riot announced earlier that they will release two champions in the summer event everyone was excited for the masked assassin as well.

There’s been a lot of speculations for the last couple of months around the masked champion. And finally, after months of waiting, Riot Games has unveiled the 150th League of Legends champion Yone, the Unforgotten.

Some Early Gameplay Info

Riot Reav3 shared some of the early Yone gameplay info on Reddit.

  • Yone doesn’t have any kind of mana, and he can reactivate his E – Soul Unbound early.
  • During his E, Yone can cast anything. For example, he can use summoner spells, can cast the second part of Q, activate his W, and so on.
  • Reav3 said, His E combined with R gives him insane target access to get to squishies, kill them and then safely return to his body location, assuming he does that from a safe distance.
  • Yone can E, flash, and R someone, similar to Azir.
  • Yone’s W’s Cooldown is reduced by Attack Speed
  • Answering to a question regarding Yone’s visuals, Reav3 said, “We intentionally made him tall/thin to give him that undead samurai feel.”
