Riot Games have finally unveiled a detailed lore and rundown of their next champion, Milio, and all of his abilities. He is designed to have great survivability and provide plenty of utility for his teammates as they fight for victory.
Milio will be the roster's first male enchanter support champion, bringing a breath of fresh air (and fire) to bot lane. Milio is the new League of Legends champion set to be released alongside the next 13.6 patch on March 22.
Here is everything you need to know about the new champion, Milio, and all of Milio's abilities.
Milio the Gentle Flame is the first male to join the enchanter roster. He hails from Ixtal as a warmhearted boy who has mastered the art of the fire axiom from a young age. Milio's fuemigos are his cute fireball companions that Milio can deploy to either heal his allies or burn his enemies. Milio's release date will be March 22, 2023, alongside Patch 13.6. Upon his release, he will have one cosmetic skin available to purchase - the Faerie Court Skin.
With his newfound powers, Milio plans to restore his family's honor. The region of Ixtal was previously only developed through Qiyana, but Milio will add a unique perspective to the region.
Milio's kit includes the following:
Milio uses his gentle flame to help his allies rather than burn them. Using soothing fire, Milio's abilities enchant allies as he carries the weight of Ixtal's future on his back.
When Milio hits himself or an ally with an ability, he enchants them for four seconds, causing their next basic attack to deal bonus magic damage based on their current Attack Damage. This applies a burn that deals 25-80 magic damage over 1.5 seconds.
Milio kicks a fire ball in a target direction after a slight delay. This knocks back and stuns the first enemy hit over 1 second. After colliding, the fire ball bounces once towards the targets location and explodes upon dropping to the ground, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies and slowing enemies for 1.5 seconds.
Milio summons an empowering zone at a target location. This cozy campfire zone follows the closest nearby ally champion. Cozy Campfire has a warming aura that increases attack range for all allies in range, including Milio himself. This also heals allies every 0.24 seconds over the duration.
Milio can recast Cozy Campfire to follow himself or another ally, placing the ability on a static 0.5 second cooldown.
Milio uses his fire to envelop himself or a targeted ally in protective flames, granting them a small shield and bonus movement speed for 2.5 seconds. Milio can hold up to two stacks of Warm Hugs, periodically recharging. Warm Hugs effects can stack up to two times.
For his Ultimate, Milio unleashes a wave of soothing flames that heals allies and grants them 65% tenacity for three seconds. Breath of Life works to cleanse allies of all negative statuses and remove crowd control effects.
It will be interesting to see how Milio impacts the current League of Legends meta with his unique fire magic and warm-hearted nature. He will initially be unavailable to play in ranked while players get to grips with his abilities.
