List of all League of Legends champions by release date

Riot Games expanded the League of Legends universe by producing their own animated television series on Netflix titled Arcane and even launched a mobile version titled League of Legends: Wild Rift, it has never been a better day to become a League of Legends player.

When will the next League of Legends Champion release?

As part of League’s patch 12.11 on June 9, 2022, Bel’Veth, League of Legend’s Void Empress made her debut, shaking up the jungle meta with her quad directional dashes, monster spawns, and other abilities.

Who is the new League of Legends Champion?

In League of Legends lore, Bel’Veth, The Empress of the Void, “the combined memories, experiences, and emotions of an entire devoured port city and its outlying ocean” are the inspiration for this champion. Bel’Veth, the game’s newest void-based jungler will have excellent mobility, allowing her to sprint around the Rift and deal massive damage to her opponents.

Bel'Veth, The Empress of the Void - League of Legends New Champion
Bel’Veth, The Empress of the Void

In spite of being new to Runeterra, Bel’Veth’s birth was the consequence of an allergic response between the Void and the fledgling realm of reality, according to her bio: “When existence came into being, it shattered the once-pristine dimension of calm nothingness, and forcefully individualized Void entities swung for eons in an attempt to defend themselves from the shock and pain”.

Bel’Veth’s mind contains millions of years of perfectly preserved knowledge, giving her near-omniscience as she prepares to destroy both Runeterra and the domain of her progenitors, the Watchers.

“However, the beings within were mutated into hedonistic, vicious animals each time they came into contact with the outside world. The Void, on the other hand, changed as a result.” Bel’Veth’s beautiful Void form makes it clear that she is a formidable opponent.

Kai’Sa’s initial encounter with Bel’Veth is depicted in her cinematic trailer, “All That Will Ever Be.”

“All That Will Ever Be” was released by Riot Games on May 20 and featured the first appearance of Bel’Veth and an encounter with Kai’Sa, another Void champion. It appears that both characters square fight at the Lavender Sea, and in the end, Bel’Veth shows her actual appearance and the Daughter of the Void appears to be trapped.

Following the teaser, Kai’Sa’s splash art has also been altered, suggesting a Void event would occur after Bel’Veth’s arrival in the game:

Kai'Sa x Void Jungler Bel'Veth - League of Legends
Kai’Sa x Void Jungler Bel’Veth

Bel’Veth, The Empress of the Void – Abilities

Renata Glasc emits a toxic cloud that makes enemies go Berserk, attacking their own comrades.

Passive – Death in Lavender

Bel’Veth gains permanent attack speed stacks after taking down large monsters and champions. She also gains temporary bonus attack speed after using an ability.

  • Following the use of an ability, Bel’Veth’s subsequent two attacks will have a higher rate of attack. In addition, anytime Bel’veth kills a huge monster or champion, she will get a permanent increase to her Attack speed in the form of lavender stacks. This bonus will last as long as she remains alive. However, both Bel’Veth’s attacks and their associated on-hit effects inflict less damage than usual, and she does not increase attack speed as she levels up. Her attack speed is uncapped, and she attacks faster than normal.

Q – Void Surge

Bel’Veth dashes in a chosen direction and damages all enemies she passes through.

  • When Bel’Veth dashes in one of the four directions available to her, she inflicts damage on all of the enemy players she encounters and activates the benefits on-hit. The amount of time it takes for each direction’s unique cooldown to expire is proportional to the attack speed.

W – Above and Below

Bel’Veth slams her tail to the ground, damaging, knocking up, and slowing her enemies.

  • The enemy units who are struck by Bel’Veth’s tail slam attack take damage, are knocked back, and have their movement speed reduced. This ability, whenever it hits an opponent champion, reduces the cooldown of Void Surge (Q), which is a dash ability, in the direction that the champion was hit.

E – Royal Maelstrom

Bel’Veth roots herself in place, channeling a storm of slashes around her that targets the lowest-health enemy and grants her lifesteal and damage reduction.

  • Bel’Veth lowers the amount of damage taken and increases the amount of life she steals as she channels a storm of slashes around her. Each slash deals its maximum damage to the opponent in her Maelstrom who has the fewest remaining health points, and the damage increases proportionately. The number of slashes she deals is proportional to the speed of her attacks.

R – Endless Banquet

Bel’Veth consumes Void coral remnants, transforming into a her true form and increasing her max health, attack range, attack speed, and out-of-combat movement speed. Consuming the Void coral remnants of a Void epic monster will grant her a longer ultimate duration, as well as the power to summon Void remora.

  • Active: Bel’veth consumes Void Coral and bursts, slowing and damaging foes dependent on their health. Bel’Veth momentarily assumes her True Form after swallowing Void Coral. Bel’Veth’s minions that die in her presence are reincarnated as Voidlings after consuming Void Coral left by Epic Monsters from the Void (Rift Herald and Baron Nashor). Voidlings serve Bel’Veth by marching down the lane where they spawned.
  • Passive: Every second attack against the same target stacks True Damage. Epic monster and champion takedowns leave Void Coral. Rift Herald and Baron Nashor drop Void Coral.
  • True Form: Bel’Veth’s True Form increases her max health, out-of-combat move speed, attack range, and total attack speed. Void Surge (Q) lets her dash through walls in True Form.

Bel’Veth Skins

A new skin for Bel’Veth will be released as part of the League of Legends Battle Boss series, making her the eight champion to have one, called Battle Boss Bel’Veth. Fans can expect this skin to cost 1,350 RP when it goes on sale in the near future, like everything else, except for Veigar, the final battle boss which costs 1,820 RP.

Battle Boss Bel’Veth Skin

The Battle Boss Bel’Veth Skin has the violet and black coloring that has become synonymous with Bel’Veth, while her form has a wide, imposing face that towers above most other champions in the game. Vampire bat and crescent moon combine to form her in-game appearance. Almost all of her powers make use of her enormous wings as weapons.

The Battle Boss Bel’Veth Skin features a cybernetic model with a green, purple, and white color palette for Bel’Veth. New images are added to every spell and movement that she does, making her look even more spectacular. Her skills also have 8-bit audio cues, exactly like the rest of the arcade-themed skins, which are available in the game. The Bel’Veth in the skin’s splash graphic, also has a bar representing her health at the bottom.
