Ahead of more information regarding Patch 12.4, Riot Games has revealed Renata Glasc as League of Legends’ 159th champion. The Chem Baroness is going to bring some controlled chaos to Summoner’s Rift with abilities that can toss enemy champions around and dangerous buffs that could end up killing her allies.
Renata Glasc is being introduced to League of Legends as a support hero, but she’s not going to be another textbook healer. Her kit is all about controlling the battlefield and interrupting her enemies – this means she’s perfect for those of you looking for a support champion who can have a huge impact on team fights.
With a kit that has a mix of Area of Effect (AoE) abilities and targeted attacks, Renata Glasc is looking like a jack of all trades that could be perfectly poised to turn the tide of a team fight. Her ultimate ability isn’t just a standard debuff either – Hostile Takeover is a cloud of chemicals that “causes enemies to go Berserk” and start attacking each other if their teammates are nearby.
Renata Glasc might not be able to directly control Beserk enemy champions, but forcing them to attack one another during a crowded teamfight is bound to cause confusion, allowing you and your allies to take advantage. When you couple this with Loyalty Program, an ability that can shield allies and slow enemies, she’s shaping up to be a useful champion to have onside.
However, Renata Glasc’s most interesting ability is Bailout. On the surface, this is going to be a very useful buff to both Attack Speed and Move Speed – and it gives those affected by Bailout a second chance when marginally losing a fight. If you die, you’ll be restored to full health – but, you’re going to begin burning to death. You can stop this burning by taking down an enemy champion, though. Essentially, it seems as though you get one final chance to finish off the player that just put you in the dirt.
It’s an incredibly diverse kit, so let’s dive into it fully.
Renata Glasc Abilities
Here are all of Renata Glasc’s abilities in League of Legends:
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.
It’s safe to say that Renata Glasc is going to cause chaos in the right hands, but will she be an effective choice going into LoL Patch 12.4? She could be one of the best League of Legends champions in the LoL ranks if her kit is as powerful as it looks on paper.
