League of Legends players rejoice! You’re getting a new champion on 14 May, and it’s a cutie! Warning: may trigger dog lovers.

She’s a bubbly magical kitty named Yuumi and she plays like a character tailor-made for newbies. She’s a support champion who attaches herself to allies to buff them up, and by doing so she’s untargetable except by towers. You just have to worry about keeping your ally alive.

Also, she sounds like a higher-pitched version of a well-known JRPG cat who tells you that it’s bedtime whenever he goddamn feels like it. We won’t be surprised if it turns out to be voice actress Cassandra Lee Morris.

Here’s the breakdown of her skills.

Passive – Bop ‘n’ Block

Every X seconds, Yuumi’s next attack against a champion restores X mana and grants her a shield that blocks X damage. This shield follows Yuumi until it’s broken and will apply to Yuumi’s attached ally if she has one.

Q – Prowling Projectile

Yuumi summons a missile that deals X magic damage to the first enemy hit. If the missile exists for X seconds before impact, it deals X magic damage instead and slows champions for X% decaying over x seconds.

If cast while attached, Yuumi can control the missile using her mouse cursor.

W – You and Me!

Passive: Yuumi and the ally she’s attached to gain X% of each other’s AD or AP, converted to Adaptive Force.

Change of Plans: Yuumi dashes to an ally champion and attaches to them. While Yuumi is attached, she follows her partner’s movement and is untargetable except from towers.

Change of Plans has a X second cooldown, but Yuumi can cast it anytime she is already attached to switch between partners or unattach.

E – Zoomies

Yuumi heals herself for X to X, increasing based on missing health, and gains X% movement speed decaying over X seconds. If Yuumi is attached, this spell affects that ally instead.

This spell has two charges. Yuumi gains a charge every X seconds. Maximum healing at X% health.

R – Final Chapter

Yuumi channels for X seconds, launching seven waves dealing X magic damage (extra missiles deal X% damage). Champions hit by three or more waves are rooted for X seconds.

Yuumi can move and cast Change of Plans and Zoomies while channeling, and can deal a maximum of X magic damage to any single enemy.

Like we said: this pussy can be used by everyone new to the game thanks to her passives and support abilities. If you can’t wait to try her out, she’ll be available 30th April on the League of Legends beta servers.
