Riot Games has added a new character to the roster of its popular MOBA League of Legends.
The new character, Bel’Veth, the Void Empress, was added as part of Patch 12.11 for the game.
She is part of the Skirmisher class and her position is Jungle. She is also a manaless melee physical character.
Let’s take a look at her lore, abilities, and skins.
“A nightmarish empress created from the raw material of an entire devoured city, Bel’Veth is the end of Runeterra itself… and the beginning of a monstrous reality of her own design. Driven by epochs of repurposed history, knowledge, and memories from the world above, she voraciously feeds an ever-expanding need for new experiences and emotions, consuming all that crosses her path. Yet her wants could never be sated by only one world as she turns her hungry eyes toward the Void’s old masters…”
DEATH IN LAVENDER
INNATE: Bel’Veth attacks 36% faster than the median champion and can exceed the attack speed cap, but all sources of damage (including on-hit effects) dealt or triggered by her basic attacks are reduced to 75%. Her attack speed does not increase through growth (per level).
INNATE: Bel’Veth’s ability casts each generate 2 stacks of Death in Lavender on her resource bar, which lasts 5 seconds, refreshes on basic attacks and subsequent casts, and stacks up to 6 times. While Bel’Veth has stacks, she becomes ghosted and gains Attack speed 25% − 50% (based on level) bonus attack speed. Her basic attacks each consume 1 stack.
INNATE: Whenever Bel’Veth scores a Damage takedown against a Champion champion or Monster monster within 3 seconds of damaging them, she generates a permanent stack of Lavender. Large monsters generate 1 stack, champions and epic monsters generate 2 stacks.
LAVENDER: For each stack, Bel’Veth gains 0.25% − 1.25% (based on level) bonus attack speed.
COLLISION RADIUS: 100
SPEED: 800 / 850 / 900 / 950 / 1000 + 100% MOVEMENT SPEED
CAST TIME: NONE
PER-DIRECTION COOLDOWN: 16 / 15 / 14 / 13 / 12
ACTIVE: Bel’Veth dashes in the designated direction, though not through terrain, dealing physical damage to enemies she passes through and applying on-hit and spell effects at 75% effectiveness to the first target hit. Void Surge can critically strike for (75% + 35% 35%) bonus physical damage and deals 120% damage to monsters and modified damage against minions.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 (+ 110% AD)
MODIFIED MINION DAMAGE: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100%
Void Surge can be cast only within a cardinal direction that is off cooldown, and incurs a cooldown between casts. Each cardinal direction has a unique cooldown that is reduced equivalent to 0.25 ability haste per 1% bonus attack speed. These cooldowns reset upon respawning.
Void Surge resets Bel’Veth’s basic attack timer.
ABOVE AND BELOW
RANGE: 0 – 660
CAST TIME: 0.5
COOLDOWN: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 / 8
ACTIVE: Bel’Veth slams her tail down in the target direction that deals magic damage to enemies hit, knocks them up for 0.75 seconds, and slows them by 50% for a duration.
MAGIC DAMAGE: 70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 100% bonus AD) (+ 125% AP)
SLOW DURATION: 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25
If this hits an enemy champion, it resets Void Surge’s Void Surge’s dash cooldown of the target direction.
EFFECT RADIUS: 500
CAST TIME: NONE
COOLDOWN: 22 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14
ACTIVE: Bel’Veth enters a defensive stance for 1.5 seconds, during which she is unable to move, but gains life steal and 70% damage reduction.
LIFE STEAL: 20 / 22 / 24 / 26 / 28% (+ 100% life steal)
During this time, she rapidly slashes at the nearest enemy with the lowest current health percentage for up to 6 (+ 1 per 33.3% bonus attack speed) times over the duration. Each slash deals physical damage, increased by 0% − 300% (based on target’s missing health), and applying on-hit, on-attack, and spell effects at 6% − 24% (based on target’s missing health) effectiveness.
Royal Maelstrom deals 150% damage to monsters, applies life steal, and cannot critically strike.
MINIMUM PHYSICAL DAMAGE PER HIT: 8 / 11 / 14 / 17 / 20 (+ 6% AD)
MINIMUM MONSTER DAMAGE PER HIT: 12 / 16.5 / 21 / 25.5 / 30 (+ 9% AD)
Royal Maelstrom can be recast after 0.75 seconds within the duration, and does so automatically after the duration or when Bel’Veth casts an ability.
RECAST: Bel’Veth ends Royal Maelstrom.
The target does not have to be visible to be hit by this ability.
EFFECT RADIUS: 500
CAST TIME: 1
PASSIVE: Bel’Veth’s basic attacks on-hit apply a mark to the target for 5 seconds. Every second attack on-hit against the marked target deals bonus true damage and generates a stack of Endless Banquet that increases this damage by the same value. This effect stacks infinitely, but is capped at 5 stacks against epic monsters. The mark and stacks expire upon attacking a new target.
BONUS TRUE DAMAGE: 6 / 8 / 10 (+ 12% bonus AD)
MAXIMUM MONSTER DAMAGE: 30 / 40 / 50 (+ 60% bonus AD)
PASSIVE: When Bel’Veth scores a takedown against an enemy champion or epic monster while alive, a Void Coral is spawned from their corpse for 15 seconds. Baron Nashor Baron Nashor and pit Rift Herald Rift Herald spawn an Enhanced Void Coral.
ACTIVE: Bel’Veth dashes to the target Void Coral to consume it over the cast time, slowing nearby enemies by 25% ramping to 99% over the duration. She then creates an explosion at the location to deal true damage to enemies within and assumes her TRUE FORM for 60 seconds.
Bel’Veth consumes all existing Void Corals at once, generating a stack of Lavender Lavender for each one consumed.
TRUE DAMAGE: 150 / 200 / 250 (+ 100% AP) (+ 25 / 30 / 35% of target’s missing health)
TRUE FORM: Bel’Veth evolves into a monster, gaining bonus health, bonus movement speed out-of-combat, bonus attack range, as well as increased total attack speed. Void Surge Void Surge can dash through terrain. Consuming a Void Coral refreshes the duration of TRUE FORM and heals Bel’Veth.
ENHANCED VOID CORAL BONUS: TRUE FORM is empowered to last 180 seconds and causes Void Remora to spawn from enemy minions that die nearby.
BONUS HEALTH: 100 / 150 / 200 (+ 165% bonus AD) (+ 90% AP)
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED: 25 / 50 / 75
BONUS ATTACK RANGE: 50 / 75 / 100
INCREASED TOTAL ATTACK SPEED: 10 / 15 / 20%
HEAL: 100 / 150 / 200
A nearby Void Coral is required to cast this ability. The on-hit modifiers from Death in Lavender Death in Lavender, Void Surge Void Surge and Royal Maelstrom Royal Maelstrom affect the bonus true damage applied by Endless Banquet’s passive. See Pets for details about Void Remora and Void Corals.
Bel’Veth got a skin called Battle Boss, which shows her as the last boss of an old-school fantasy JRPG style game called “Initial Reverie VIII”.
That’s a reference to Final Fantasy VIII, which puts her in the role of the villain of that game; Ultimecia.
Bel’Veth was just one of the new updates that Patch 12.11 brought us.
