In recent patches, League of Legends has received more content based around the nation of Zaun, after the success of the acclaimed animated series, Arcane.
Last time, we got our first look around Zeri, a young champion who harnessed the power of her electrical magic and extreme speed to outrun all her enemies, leaving an electrifying disaster in her wake.
So now, coming with League’s patch 12.4 to the Summoner’s Rift, one of the most powerful innovators is set to make her debut, bringing all of her chemtech tools to terrorize her enemies, and even her allies.
Introducing Renata Glasc, the Chem-Baroness
Renata Glasc will be the first champion to join both League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics since the arrival of Zeri a couple of weeks ago. She will also be the first new addition focused on the support role since Rell’s release in December 2020.
Renata is a powerful tycoon and alchemist known for being the founder of Glasc Industries, a company that has been developing technologies to redefine beauty, improving the lives of the people of Zaun and Piltover alike for over 30 years.
As such, she’s a confident and cunning woman who will stop at nothing to achieve the goals she has set for herself, with a manipulative nature that is impulsed by money and power, while she tries to make “Chemtech affordable, beautiful, and accessible for all.”
An alchemist, businesswoman, and leader, this ambitious chem-baroness aim to take Piltover’s source of financial power for herself, in order to take control of the trading system and later on, the world.
And with a secret cache of her parents’ chemtech formula embedded in every Glasc product in both Piltover and Zaun, ready to be released at her command—side effects and all—it’s only a matter of time before everyone works for Renata Glasc.
Renata Glasc's abilities and their effects
Below, we have detailed all of Renata Glasc's abilities.
Passive - Leverage
Renata Glasc’s basic attacks mark her enemies and deal bonus damage. Damage from Renata’s allies consumes the mark, dealing additional damage.
Q - Handshake
Renata Glasc sends out a missile from her robotic arm that roots the first enemy hit. She can reactivate the ability to throw the enemy in a target direction, damaging enemies hit and stunning them if the thrown target is a champion.
W - Bailout
Renata Glasc grants an allied champion or herself ramping Attack Speed and Move Speed toward enemies.
If the ally gets a takedown on an enemy champion, the buff duration resets. If the ally would die while Bailout is still active, their health is set back to full but they begin burning to death over 3 seconds. The ally can stop the burn by getting a champion takedown before they die.
E - Loyalty Program
Renata Glasc sends out chemtech rockets that shield allies and damage and slow enemies they pass through. The rockets also apply their effects around her on cast and in an explosion at max range.
R - Hostile Takeover
Renata Glasc sends out a cloud of chemicals that causes enemies to go Berserk, increasing their Attack Speed and forcing them to basic attack anything around them.
Berserk enemies prioritize attacking their own allies, then neutral units, then Renata Glasc's team, then Renata Glasc herself.
Renata Glasc's release date and skin
Renata Glasc's arrival to the Rift will be accompanied by a new skin, created specifically for her to show her influence and power around Runeterra.
"Ambitious, cunning, cutthroat-- these qualities served Admiral Glasc well during the Galactic Civil War. They serve her still, both on the front lines and in the weapons manufacturing industry. As the leader of the Royal Space Military's R&D unit, Admiral Glasc will bring order to the galaxy with firepower unmatched: whether it's dropping planetside or traversing distant stars, the universe is her chessboard, and she is the queen."
The Admiral Glasc skin will be available for 1,350 RP, so be prepared if you want to take over the Rift with style and power.
Renata Glasc, the Chem-Baroness is scheduled for release this 16th February with League's patch 12.4, along with TFT’s next mid-set update, Neon Nights.
