Riot Games continues to add champions to League of Legends: Wild Rift with the arrival of its update 2.4. One of the next to join the game’s roster is the Rogue Sentinel, Akshan, becoming the first character to be added at the same time in all titles related to the universe of Runeterra.
Equipped with his holy relic weapon, Akshan will fly over to defend Runeterra in Wild Rift continuing his fight against the Ruin, along with an exclusive launch skin for the mobile game, different from the one he will have in the PC version, being part of the Battle Academy theme.
Wild Rift Akshan: All abilities overview
Let's take a brief look into his abilities:
Passive - Dirty Fighting
Every three hits from Akshan’s attacks and damaging abilities deal a burst of physical damage. If the target was a champion, Akshan also gains a shield.
After attacking, Akshan fires a second attack that deals reduced physical damage. The second shot can be cancelled like a regular basic attack. If Akshan cancels the second shot he gains a burst of move speed.
Q - Avengerang
Akshan throws a boomerang that deals physical damage and reveals enemies hit, extending its range each time it hits an enemy. Enemies can be hit once as the boomerang goes out and once as it returns.
W - Going Rogue
With its passive, when enemy champions kill one of Akshan’s allies, they are marked as Scoundrels. When Akshan gets a takedown on a Scoundrel he gains bonus gold, all allies killed by the Scoundrel are resurrected at their base, and Scoundrel status is removed from all other enemies.
When activated, Akshan becomes camouflaged for a short duration, or indefinitely while near terrain. During this time, Akshan can see trails leading toward Scoundrels and gains move speed and mana regeneration while moving toward them.
E - Heroic Swing
Akshan fires a hookshot that embeds in the first terrain hit. While embedded, he can recast to swing around the terrain in the cast direction, firing physical damage bullets at the nearest enemy while swinging. While swinging, he can recast again to jump off in the direction of the cursor and fire a final shot.
Heroic Swing's cooldown resets when Akshan earns a takedown on an enemy champion.
R - Comeuppance
Akshan locks onto an enemy champion and begins channelling power into his gun to store bullets. At the end of the duration or after recasting Akshan unleashes the stored bullets, each dealing physical damage based on missing health to the first minion, champion, or structure hit.
Akshan can move normally and cast Heroic Swing while channelling and firing Comeuppance.
When does Akshan arrive to Wild Rift?
The launch of Akshan will be part of the second part of the global event of the Sentinels of Light in League of Legends: Wild Rift, scheduled for 27th July 2021.
Along with him, another of the champions that will come to the game as part of the plot of the event will be Thresh, available with a new look as part of update 2.4.
