Legends of Runeterra’s card reveal season shows no signs of stopping, and today, Riot Games revealed the fourth champion reigning from the Noxus region alongside a unique way to level up. 

Swain is the champion that Riot unveiled in today’s teasers. He’s a five-cost champion unit wielding three power and six health with Fearsome and a Nexus Strike ability that allows him to deal three damage to the enemy Nexus. He reaches his leveled form when you’ve dealt 12 non-combat damage throughout the game.

Swain’s leveled form is also five-cost with +1/+1 in stats and the same keyword and Nexus Strike. The new ability Swain gains, though, allows him to stun the strongest units on the enemy’s backrow.

Swain’s leveled-up effect, as well as the newly-revealed Noxian Fervor and Ravenous Flock, help support potential Yasuo archetypes and strategies. Swain and Yasuo have a symbiotic relationship with one another by helping both level up easier.

Swain will join the champion roster when LoR is officially released for PC and mobile on April 30.
