A new trick that would allow Yone to get a free recall with his empowered E after getting the herald or baron buff has now been patched out by Riot Games.

Riot Games teased that there will be two new champions in the Spirit Blossom event. First, they introduced the dreamy jungler Lillia on the first part of the event and after months of speculations, Riot finally unveiled Yasuo’s brother, Yone.

Ever since his reveal on the “Kin of the Stained Blade” cinematic, Yone received a lot of hype from the League players. And soon after getting on the PBE players started to figure out all the combos Yone can possibly have in the game.

Yone’s E ability is called Soul Unbound that allows Yone to enter his Spirit Form for five seconds, gaining movement speed and leaving his body behind. Streamers and League players however found out a cool trick that would allow him to use his E just like Ekko’s ultimate.

From the clip, it can be seen that with the help of the herald or baron’s quick recall buff, Yone could recall, go to his base buy items, and his empowered E would return him to his recalled place. And soon after figuring the trick a lot of streamers are calling out this as “broken.”

Riot Games however also thinks this trick shouldn’t exist in the game as a Reddit user named u/KILLERCRACK has confirmed on a Reddit post that “Yone empowered recalling in E has been fixed.”

After being posted on Reddit it started to receive mixed reactions from the players. Some players think its a great decision as Ekko is the only champion who can do this and in order to do that he needs to burn his ultimate but Yone doing this with just a simple ability is completely broken. But some other players also think it was not that overpowered as everyone thinks.

Yone currently has another bug that allow him to cancel his E animation. And a lot of players are also showing their concerns on Yone’s walk animation and asking if Riot can fix them as well.
