So, let's get into the details about this upcoming LoL character Zaun support, release date, trailer, abilities, and more.

League of Legends Champion 2022

On January 7, the LoL devs released a video discussing the upcoming Champions in Season 2022. It was revealed that the initial patch of Season 12 will bring Zeri on January 20, and after that Riot has enormous plans for their forthcoming releases in 2022.

As mentioned earlier, Riot already revealed that they were planning to bring a bottom lane marksman champion, next support champion, and Void-based jungle. And now the recent LoL Champion in 2022 video has revealed details about the upcoming support champion, who will be having a dark twist and will have a shift from the usual bright-and-bubbly enchanter category.


UPDATE: 19/01/22

League of Legends Zaun Support - Renata

Recently devs introduced Zeri to the players with the 12.2 patch, however, we already have leaks revealing info regarding League of Legends Champ 159, revealing her potential name.

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 a 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 LoL champ 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.


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 how 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 as 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.

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."
