Riot Games officially reveals League of Legends’ upcoming AD item for 2021, Hullbreaker, replacing the Sanguine Blade.
Earlier this month, Riot Games confirmed that they are currently working on two new items and one heavily reworked one. For the rework, Sanguine Blade was selected as it is currently very underwhelming and only has a 0.3% pick rate/popularity among Legendary items.
“This item has an awesome solo operative fantasy, but its stat package has struggled to support it,” Riot on the Sanguine Blade’s state.
Now, Riot Games has officially revealed the upcoming Legendary AD item in League of Legends called the Hullbreaker that is going to replace Sanguine Blade.
“We’re replacing Sanguine Blade with Hullbreaker, a broader item that’ll be tempting for AD splitpushers,” Riot Phlox on the new item.

Which champions might abuse Hullbreaker?
Hullbreaker is basically removed Banner of Command on steroids. Hullbreaker will not only empower minions but will also grant split pushing champions 20 – 45 Armor and Magic Resist that will be crucial for some AD champions to do the side lane jobs more efficiently.
In the current meta, heavy split push champions like Jax, Nocturne, and Camille will definitely abuse the item. It will not be a surprise if champions like Jax get Hullbreaker as his 2nd item to split push like a madman. Moreover, we might also see the item on champions like Tryndamere, Fiora, Renekton, and some other top lane champions as well.
We have previously seen how broken split push can be with Banner of Command. However, to counter Hullbreaker, Riot is also releasing a Legendary Tank item that will have a binding effect similar to Knight’s Vow and Zeke’s Convergence.
Hullbreaker Release Date
According to Riot Phlox, Hullbreaker is going to release in the Summoner’s Rift on LoL patch 11.13, June 23, 2021.
