League of Legends already has an impressive roster of Champions, and now a new Champion has joined the fight to spice up the challenge. Unlike previous Champions, Samira was introduced to League without any hype-building. Players found that the Champion suddenly landed in the game's Public Beta Environment last weekend.

Samira is known as Desert Rose and Riot describes the Champion as “a boss with a blade and a master of gun fu” who's specialty lies in melee and ranged engagement. Players will definitely love the style ranking system for Samira. Players can chain combos when playing as Samira, and the better the combos are, the higher your rank is going to be. Samira's ranking system will be similar to the one seen in Devil May Cry games, ranging from "E" to "S". Another interesting thing about the ranking system is that the higher Samira goes up in the ranks, her speed will also increase.

Here's a detailed breakdown of Samira's abilities:

Passive - Daredevil Impulse

Chaining non-repeating abilities (and basic attacks) increases Samira's Style grade by one letter, from "E" to "S" rank. Every Style grade gives her bonus movement speed. Samira can also damage enemies at range with her guns or with her sword in melee range, the latter dealing bonus magic damage.

Samira can also juggle enemies who are movement-impaired by her allies in the air, extending the displacement.

Q - Flair

Samira fires a shot at her enemy's directly when at range with her guns. Enemies in melee range will instead be damaged by a slash of her sword.

W - Blade Whirl

Samira slashes the area around her with her sword, damaging enemies in the vicinity twice and destroying any enemy missiles in the area at cast and that enter the area after the fact.

E - Wild Rush

Samira dashes through an enemy or ally, dealing magic damage to any enemies passed through and gaining bonus attack speed for a duration. Takedowns of enemy champions reset Wild Rush's cooldown.

R - Inferno Trigger

Samira unleashes a torrent of shots from her weapons, wildly attacking any enemies around her 10 times over a duration. Each shot deals physical damage, applies lifesteal, and can critically strike.

Samira can only cast Inferno Trigger if her current Style grade is at "S" (the max grade).

League of Legends is free-to-play on PC.
