Last season, each champion released was tied to the Ruination event , with Viego, Gwen, Viego, and Vex all related to the Shadow Isles, the Sentinels of Light, and King Ruined’s quest to change the world as we know it. While it’s currently unclear if Zeri will usher in a Zaun-related championship year, it’s possible to look at the area already under a microscope. since its release Arcane last fall.
It may be a while until Zeri hits the live servers, but the champion is still on the way and will most likely be released sometime in early 2022. Ranking this year League The season starts on January 7, so it’s likely that Zeri won’t be released until after that date.
Here’s everything we know about League champion so far.
She has an “electric” set
Zeri’s abilities revolve around the use of electric magic. The power of electricity can be found in both her body and her stun gun, both of which are said to be used by the champion in combat, according to her official bio. Zeri’s legend states that her mother built her a rifle as a child that could be powered by Zeri’s emotions. “The rifle’s conductive barrel amplifies her power directly from her hand,” according to Riot. Zeri has also found a way to control her powers with the help of her jacket, which allows her to fire “slightly precise electric blasts”, according to her bio.
The lineup of Zeri’s abilities has yet to be officially revealed by Riot at this time. But it’s reasonable to assume her kit will include her electric powers, her refined rifle, and potentially even her powerful coat in some way. It was previously suggested by Riot that Zeri will be an ADC.
She is from Zaun
Zeri is one of the latest champions to leave a legacy in the city of Zaun. Follow her biography.
Zeri’s lore ties her deeply to the Chem barons of Zaun, a group of opportunists seeking to take advantage of the city’s resources and energies. One day, a mining accident caused by the barons of Chem puts Zeri, as well as her family and friends, in danger. But stubborn Zeri was able to use her electric magic to save countless people from disaster. However, Zeri realized that was not enough. She comes to the conclusion that she must fight the Chem barons to really keep Zaun safe. Zeri’s goal is to better capture her electrical abilities so they can become more effective and reliable in combat situations.
Does Zeri have any connection to Riot’s recently released animated series? Arcane has not yet been seen. But the new champion is related to Ekko, according to her official championship page, again League the character who comes from Zaun and appears in Arcane. Also, considering the Chem barons also appeared in the first season of Arcane, most likely Zeri will be on the show.
She will probably be released early this yearr
While Riot has yet to give an official release date for Zeri, it’s likely that she will be released at some point in the coming weeks if previous champion releases are any stat. Last year, the first champion of the year belonged to Viego who was live League server only two weeks after being public debut. It’s possible that Zeri’s release could follow a similar timeline.
