Riot Games reveals League of Legends’ upcoming Legendary Tank item for 2021, Anathema’s Chains.

Earlier this month, Riot Games confirmed that they are currently working on two new items and one heavily reworked one. In the meantime, Riot has already confirmed the new AD item Hullbreaker that is replacing Sanguine Blade.

Now, Riot has unveiled the new Tank Legendary item Anathema’s Chains, releasing in League of Legends patch 11.13. While Hullbreaker will favor the split pushers, Anathema’s Chains is going to counter the split pushing champions.

“The item grants damage reduction against just that targeted enemy, as well as a tenacity reduction aura against them if you’re close to them,” Riot previously said about Anathema’s Chains. “This item should be fantastic for dealing with a fed carry or single-threat team composition, as well as matching a threatening split pusher.”
