League of Legends' Newest Champion: Ivern
In the teaser video, the new champion is introduced as “Ivern: Friend of the Forest.” The video begins with a hunter attempting to hunt a pack of wolf cubs sleeping. But, the hunter is unaware that Ivern, a friendly tree-being, is there to protect these wolf cubs.
Ivern snags the hunter by using nearby vines and mockingly silences him by saying “shhh,” while protecting the baby wolves from any harm. Other hunters appear in the distance, but Ivern uses his magic abilities to grow the grass around him and the puppies, keeping them out of the other hunters’ sight.
League of Legends already has a similar champion in the game in terms of appearance, as Maokai is also a tree-being, but it seems like Ivern is much more friendly compared to Maokai.
As of now, not much information is known about this friendly tree, but it will be interesting to see whether or not Ivern will be competitively-viable moving forward after the 2016 World Championships.
