Riot Games have revealed the newest addition to the mythic items, Radiant Virtue.
With season 12 ending in less than two months, Riot Games has officially announced most of the changes for Preseason 2023.
In their latest post, Riot Games revealed the patch notes for Preseason 2023. And according to the post, the preseason will include many new changes. This year’s preseason changes will consist of massive Jungle changes, the return of Chemtech Drake, new communication options, vision improvements, Top Lane changes, and, most interestingly, more Items.
Riot has announced that they will be adding and updating 12 different items this preseason. These Items include the new mythic items called, Icathia’s Endurance, Radiant Virtue, Iceborn Gauntlet, Goliath’s Ascendiary, and Rod of Ages. Along with new items, Riot is also bringing back some old items.
Today we will take a look at the ‘Radiant Virtue’ item.
Radiant Virtue (Mythic Item)
- 400 Health
- 30 Armor
- 30 Magic Resist
- 20 Ability Haste
- Guiding Light: Upon casting your ultimate, you Transcend, increasing your maximum health by 10% for 9 seconds. While Transcended, you and allies within 1200 range of you gain 25 non-ultimate Ability Haste. You and your allies will also heal for 1.5% of your maximum health every 3 seconds, increased by up to 100% based on that champion’s missing health. Healing is doubled on yourself (90-second cooldown).
- Mythic Passive: Grants all other Legendary items 100 Health.
The new Mythic item, Icathia’s Endurance, is a tank Mythic and will replace the Frostfire Gauntlet.
The item will give similar stats to Frostfire Gauntlet with 50 less health and five more Armor and Magic Resistance. However, the Ability Haste will remain the same, at 20 Ability Haste. As for Mythic Passive, Radiant Virtue will give 100 Health per Legendary item, just like Frostfire Gauntlet but will not have the 6% increased size per Legendary Item passive.
The Radiant Virtue will have an emphasis on team fighting. Its passive will allow its user to heal you and your allies and give ultimate Ability haste. This is a very good passive, especially for Top Lane tanks, as they prefer team fighting over pushing side lanes. The item will also be a good option for tank supports, allowing them to peel for their ADCs more efficiently.
Overall, this is an excellent item.
According to Riot Games, the changes will be coming to the PBE (Public Beta Environment) servers on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.
