In a quick impromptu journey back into the fantastical universe of League of Legends, we’re confronted this time by Xerath. A resurrected being of pure energy surrounded by the shards of a magical sarcophagus, this gargantuan perfectly captures the feel of uncontrollable power.
Unsurprisingly, energy is at the heart of Xerath’s attack, with orbs and bolts of the stuff managing to both stun and damage an adversary, even at long range. As if this weren’t enough, increased ability from successful strikes will be channeled into his armour, making him even more durable. As with most giants, there is the caveat that stamina and failed shots tend to have greater implications, leaving him vulnerable. This gives players the age-old quandary: conserve energy and make progress slowly, or take a risk and go all out.
As you can probably gather, I returned to Photoshop and drawing for this one. Just because, really. Another curious peek into a new world.
