Riot Games officially revealed League of Legends’ 153rd champion Rell and here’s everything you need to know.
Earlier this year, Riot Games announced that they are planning to release six new champions a year in League of Legends. So far in 2020, they have already released five of them Sett, Lillia, Yone, Samira, and Seraphine. Later, in the September Champion Roadmap, Riot said that the sixth champion is going to be ultra-heavy tank support.
And now, Riot Games has officially unveiled League of Legends’ upcoming tank support champion Rell, the Iron Maiden.
Rell Release Date
2020 new tank support champion, Rell is going to be released on patch 10.25, December 10, 2020. Rell will be available for testing in the patch 10.25 PBE cycle.
Passive – Break the Mold
Rell attacks very slowly, but temporarily steals a portion of her target’s Armor and Magic Resist to deal bonus damage based on the amount stolen. Additionally, Rell can siphon resistances from multiple different foes to grow extremely tanky.
Q – Shattering Strike
Rell stabs forward with her lance, breaking any shields and damaging all enemies hit (damage decreases after the first target). If Rell has an ally bound with E – Attract and Repel, she and that ally recover health for each champion hit by this ability.
W1 – Ferromancy: Crash Down
(Can only cast while mounted) Rell leaps into the sky and transforms her mount into heavy armor, gaining a huge shield that lasts until destroyed or remounting. Upon landing, she knocks up all enemies around her. Rell can cast E – Attract and Repel and R – Magnet Storm during the transformation.
Rell has increased durability, low movement speed, and a movement speed cap while in armored form. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Mount Up.
W2 – Ferromancy: Mount Up
(Can only cast while in armored form) Rell rushes forward and transforms her armor into a mount, gaining a burst of movement speed. During her next attack, she charges her target to deal bonus damage and flip them over her shoulder.
Rell has increased movement speed while mounted. After the transformation, this ability changes to Ferromancy: Crash Down.
E – Attract and Repel
Rell magnetically binds a piece of her armor to a target allied champion, granting them bonus Armor and Magic Resist while nearby.
Rell can recast this spell to break the bind and stun all enemies around and between her and her bound ally.
R – Magnet Storm
Rell erupts in magnetic fury, yanking nearby enemies toward her. She then creates a gravitational field around her, pulling nearby enemies in for a few seconds. The field doesn’t interrupt her enemies’ other actions.

Some Early Gameplay Info
Riot Brad said, ” be careful of W’ing in! she drops to roughly 200 movement speed while unmounted; only go in when you want to commit, otherwise you’ll be kited + be an int.”
According to Riot Scruffy, Rell brings a new take to form swapping champs.
- Fast and light when mounted on the metal horse
- Slow but heavily armored when she transforms her steed into a full plate
“The product of brutal experimentation at the hands of the Black Rose, Rell is a defiant, living weapon determined to topple Noxus. Her childhood was one of misery and horror, enduring unspeakable procedures to perfect and weaponize her magical control over metal… until she made a violent escape, killing many of her captors in the process. Now branded as a criminal, Rell attacks Noxian soldiers on sight as she searches for survivors of her old “academy”, defending the meek while delivering merciless death to her former instructors.”
