Thursday, February 17, 2022, is the expected LoL Renata release date as it has been stated that Renata is expected to make her debut in League of Legends patch 12.4, scheduled two weeks later in mid-February.


League of Legends Zaun Support - Past Renata leaks

Although devs gave a few teasers, new leaks have revealed League of Legends Champ 159 potential name and abilities.

It has been speculated that League of Legends Zaun support will be known as "Renata".

The news started to flow on the web when a Twitter insider @SybrLoL posted skins leak along with the Season 12 cosmetics that will be released in the early months of 2022.

The leak had names of different skins including Bee-themed skins, Anima, Arcana, but what actually caught our attention was the name of the next LoL champ, Zaun support that appeared in the same list.

The January 19 skins leak mentioned the next LoL Renata and her launch skin and it was stated that the next LoL champion will be released along with Anima skins in patch 12.5.

However, nothing can be said for sure as we are far away from the release of LoL patch 12.5.

Other than the Twitter leak, we have a fresh leak from some Chinese datamined files for TFT set 6.5 that has additionally confirmed the LoL Zaun support's name “Renata”.

If we go by the leak then the upcoming champion is coming for both League of Legends and TFT. Then leak likewise revealed LoL Zaun support, Renata's abilities.

League of Legends Zaun Support - Renata Abilities

As per the recent revelations made by the devs in the League of Legends 2022 champions video, the new Zaun support will make "players feel like the boss that they are."

Other than the teasers from devs, the leaked League of Legends Renata E ability states:

  • Passive: Renata’s basic attack deals a percentage of the target’s maximum health as true damage.
  • Active: Renata fire a missile at her target dealing magic damage to all enemies hit and reducing their magic resistance. At the end of the missile, it will explode, causing the same effect to enemies in the explosion, and the magic resistance reduction can stack.

LoL Zaun support, Renata's abilities

While Riot hasn't revealed any specific Zaun support's abilities, one thing is clear that the game’s enchanter support kit will likely be quite skill-expressive.

Talking about the new support champion abilities, Reav3 said, "We also wanted to make a champion whose theme and the kit makes support players feel like the boss that they are. And if any of you supports out there know what I’m talking about, then I think you're going to go berzerk over this new enchanter."

We will make sure to update the article whenever Riot decides to drop in new info about this new League of Legends Zaun support abilities.

League of Legends Zaun Support - The "sinister and dark" enchanter

Currently, we have several shielders and healers like Sona, Lulu, Nami, Yuumi, Janna who dominate the support category and the devs wanted the new support to break away from that thematic.

In the LoL Champion 2022 video, while talking about the upcoming support champion, the Reav3 revealed that they were basically planning to bring a new style of enchanter support and stated, "When we were thinking about the type of support we wanted to make, we looked at the enchanter cast overall."

He further said, "There are a lot of lighthearted, colorful, good-aligned champions there and we felt support players deserved something more sinister and dark to balance out that cheery brightness in the role."

While talking about this new champion, the devs gave a small teaser of what the new Zaun support would look like, and as per the fans' assumption, this upcoming character looks quite similar to Zaunite chem-baron Corina Veraza, who currently features like a card in Legends of Runeterra.

The point of comparison here is the robotic arm of Zaunite shown off in her "Corina, Mastermind" however, the purple glow is missing from the card image. Clearly, it is only a hypothesis, and we only know that the LoL Zaun support has no connections to Arcane.

Ryan revealed that LoL Zaun support will be released early this year, i.e., 2022 in the first few patches in Season 12. Earlier, while discussing the release of upcoming LoL champions 2022, it was revealed that the first two champions were planned for the end of 2021, however, they did not fit the events and hence were pushed a year back.

Currently, we have the new champion Zeri releasing in patch 12.2, so we can expect the LoL Zaun support release date to be scheduled after that.

Well, there you have it. Everything we know so far about the new LoL Zaun support champion and the elements that it will bring. Be sure to check it out when it releases. We will keep updated with new info, so keep following.
