League of Legends: Yuumi Riot Games

League of Legends introduced its newest hero, Yuumi, who meow meows her way to the battlefield. The latest champion to join the fray plays a support role with a rather high skill cap. Unlike other champions in the game, Yuumi comes with unique mechanics that allow her to be attached to an ally. Once she does so, she has no other choice but to follow the movements of her ally. However, while in such a state Yuumi is immune to all damage and can still damage opponents with her abilities.

Yuumi's story begins in Bandle City, where she was once Norra's familiar. However, one day the yordle enchantress mysteriously disappeared resulting in Yuumi becoming the keeper of the Book of Thresholds, her master's sentient book. Yuumi then started to travel through the portals located in the pages of the book in search of her master. As she continuously longs for affection, she looks for friendly companions that can be with her on her journey, and in return protects them with her fierce resolve and luminous shields. The Book tries its best to make sure that Yuumi is always doing the task at hand, which is to look for her master. However, the champion is usually attracted to worldly comforts like fish and naps. Even with all thse distractions, Yuumi always manages to find a way to return to her quest in order to find her master and friend.

As such, her abilities are based on this background story.

Passive - Bop ‘n’ Block

  • Every so often, Yuumi’s next attack against an opponent restores mana and grants her a shield. If Yuumi is Attached, the shield protects her ally. The shield protects Yuumi or her ally until it’s broken.

Q - Prowling Projectile

  • Yuumi fires a missile that deals magic damage to the first enemy hit. If the missile is in flight long enough, it deals bonus damage and slows enemies.
  • While Attached, Yuumi fires a missile from her ally’s position and can direct the missile’s flight path with her mouse.

W - You and Me!

  • Passive: While Attached, Yuumi and her ally gain a percent of each other’s AD or AP converted to Adaptive Force.
  • Active: Yuumi starts with a point in her W. She dashes to an ally champion and attaches to them. While Attached, she follows her partner’s movement and is untargetable by everything except tower damage. Yuumi’s abilities fire from her ally’s location, and she can’t attack enemies. There’s no cooldown to jump among her teammates. However, if Yuumi un-attaches entirely, she’ll need to wait for the cooldown to partner up, which starts as soon as she’s attached.

E - Zoomies

  • Yuumi heals and gains a burst of movement speed. If Attached, her ally is targeted by the spell instead. This spell has two charges.

R - Final Chapter

  • Yuumi opens Book, launching waves of magic damage that root enemies after multiple hits. While using her ult, Yuumi can move, attach to ally champions, and heal.
