League of Legends Champion Leaks for 2024

The new League of Legends champion, released in early 2024, was indeed a cute and powerful creature – a young dragon. Following the recent release of Smolder, who is the Next League of Legends Champion?

Rumors about the next League of Legends champion point to a fierce huntress from the icy Freljord. This new champion could be a top laner or bot laner specializing in physical damage. Speculations suggest that she might also introduce a completely unique weapon to the world of Runeterra. Reliable leaker Big Bad Bear suggests we’ll learn more in late April or early May 2024. This would be a welcome addition for fans of the Freljord, as the last champion from this region, Ornn, was released almost seven years ago. Could this huntress be connected to the new Vastayan champion hinted at by Riot, a creature dwelling in the Freljordian forests? We’ll have to wait and see.

Additional Champions in the League of Legends 2024 Roadmap :

  • Rumors about a top lane huntress from the Freljord, wielding a unique weapon.
  • New Vastaya champion living in the Freljord forest, possibly a huntress, expected after the dragon champion’s release (mid-2024).

As the community awaits these champion releases, there’s also anticipation for the Skarner rework, voted as the next champion to get a VGU. Riot Lexical clarified in a recent Reddit post that Skarner’s rework won’t come before the new marksmen, the baby dragon champion. Fans are encouraged to be patient as the development team is still working on Skarner’s rework and accompanying skins.


That concludes our List of all League of Legends champions by release date guide, reminding everyone to always take rumors with a grain of salt.

By viewing the above list, you can learn the various hero champions in the League of Legends game. According to the latest data analysis, other new heroes will join the League of Legends roster this year, which is undoubtedly great and exciting for the fan community.

While waiting, consider turning your favorite champion hero characters into real items. It is said that the popular form of fan art nowadays is fan-created and derived artwork of other aspects of the game, and the most popular fan artwork today is custom made pins and custom die cut stickers. If you are planning to promote a hot game product, why not consider customizing a group of fan-favorite peripherals.
