Riot has transformed Vex into an even more traditional burst mage and this shift was the reason behind the postponement of the League of Legends Vex release date

League of Legends Vex gets irritated as damnation with hyperactive champions running all around her which is sufficient to make her begin pummeling all lifeforms loaded with aggravating joy running around her like bothersome flies.

LoL Vex Passive Abilities

  • Vex Doom - League of Legends' Vex becomes empowered by Doom, making her next basic ability cause fear in opponents and interrupt dashes. 
  • Vex Goom: This ability of Vex enables him to detonates the mark against a Gloom marked enemy, which refunds a part of Doom’s cooldown and deals bonus damage.

LoL Vex Abilities

  • E - Looming Darkness 

Shadow flies to an area, expanding in size as it moves. On showing up, Shadow explodes slow Gloom on any marked foes it hits. 

  • R - Shadow Surge 

Shadow flies forward, dealing magic damage and marking the very first opponent champion it hits. Vex would then be able to rework this ability to have the Shadow pull her to the marked opponent, dealing further magic damage. 

In the event that the marked enemy is been killed within a brief time frame of taking damage from Shadow Surge, Vex can project Shadow Surge again inside a couple of moments.
