Riot Games has revealed the abilities of the newest LoL champion, Hwei. Let’s see what his kit is like and how he will be in Summoners’ Rift.

Hwei - The Newest LoL Champion with Unique Abilities

Hwei – LoL Abilities Rundown

Hwei is the latest addition to the roster of LoL champions. He is supposedly going to be a mid laner and judging from his initial set of abilities, Hwei is going to be quite a complex champion, given that the concatenation of abilities will lead to different effects and interactions.

His kit is entirely based on his different moods and every time he changes it, there is a different ability that gets activated. If you think he might be quite a broken champion, I feel like there are some clear weaknesses that are related to his cooldowns. Every time he changes mood, there is quite a big downtime where he can’t use that ability again, meaning that he will need to stack a lot of ability haste from his items to maximize its kit.

Without further ado, let’s jump into Hwei’s base stats and abilities.

Base Stats

  • Health: 550 – 2318
  • Mana: 445 – 955
  • Health regen: 6 – 96.1
  • Mana regen: 8 – 19.9
  • AD: 50 – 106.1
  • Armor: 18 – 97.9
  • Magic resistance: 30 – 52.1
  • MS: 320
  • Attack range: 575
  • AS base: 0.714
  • AS ratio: 0.658
  • Bonus AS: 3.3%

Abilities

Passive – Signature of the Visionary

INNATE: Hwei’s damaging abilities mark enemies hit for 4 seconds. Damaging them with a different ability consumes the mark to create an explosion beneath them, dealing 35 − 200 (based on level) (+25% AP) bonus magic damage to enemies in the area after 0.85 seconds.

Q – Subject: Disaster

ACTIVE: Hwei enters a disastrous mood, gaining access to its abilities as well as Wash Brush. He will exit the mood upon casting any of them.

  • Devastating – QQ: Hwei slings a fireball in the target direction that explodes upon colliding with the first enemy or reaching maximum range, dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies. The damage based on the target’s health ratio is capped at 250 against monsters.
  • Fire Severing Bolt – QW: Hwei calls upon a lightning bolt to strike at the target location after 1 second, dealing magic damage to enemies within the area. Against enemies that are immobilized or isolated from their allies, Severing Bolt deals increased damage based on the target’s missing health. This bonus damage is capped at 300 against monsters (Severing Bolt deals 50% damage to minions and non-epic monsters).
  • Molten – QE: Hwei marks a blazing path in the target direction. After 0.7 seconds, the path erupts into volcanic shockwaves every 0.175 seconds from the point of cast. Each shockwave creates an explosion that deals magic damage to nearby enemies. The explosions also leave a lava fissure in their wake. Each fissure lasts for 2.5 seconds, dealing magic damage every 0.25 seconds to enemies within the area and slowing them by 30% (Molten Fissure’s damage is reduced to 60% against minions and increased to 135% against monsters).

W – Subject: Serenity

ACTIVE: Hwei enters a serene mood, gaining access to its abilities as well as Wash Brush. He will exit the mood upon casting any of them.

  • Fleeting Current – WQ: Hwei forms a current of water in the target direction, creating a path for a duration that grants him and allied champions bonus movement speed for 0.5 seconds, refreshing every 0.125 seconds while they remain in the area.
  • Fleeting Current – WW: Hwei summons a pool of water at the target location, creating a protective zone for 3 seconds that grants him and allied champions a shield for 0.5 seconds while within the area. The shield refreshes and increases in strength by an amount every 0.264 seconds over the duration while they remain in the area (Pool of Reflection’s shield strength is reduced to 50% for allies).
  • Stirring Lights – WE: Hwei surrounds himself in swirling flares that empower his next 3 basic attacks or ability hits within 9 seconds to each deal bonus magic damage and restore mana. Stirring Lights’ bonus damage is reduced to 50% against minions or monsters if applied by his area of effect abilities.

E – Subject: Torment

ACTIVE: Hwei enters a tumultuous mood, gaining access to its abilities as well as Wash Brush. He will exit the mood upon casting any of them.

  • Grim Visage – EQ: Hwei launches a terrifying grin in the target direction that deals magic damage to the first enemy hit and fears them for 1 second.
  • Gaze of the Abyss – EW: Hwei tosses an eyeball to the target location. Upon arrival, it expands into a dark gaze, granting sight in a larger area and locking onto the nearest visible enemy champion. After a delay, the eye launches itself at the target, dealing magic damage to the first enemy it collides with and rooting them for a duration.
  • Crushing Maw – EE: Hwei conjures a jaw at the target location that snaps after 0.627 seconds, dealing magic damage to enemies in the area and slowing them by an amount that decays over 1.25 seconds. Enemies that are not standing at the center when the jaw snaps are pulled there.

Wash Brush

ACTIVE: Hwei exits his current mood without incurring its ability cost or cooldown. Wash Brush can only be cast if Hwei has entered a mood.
