League of Legends Jhin The Virtuoso Detailed Reveals
After yesterday’s apparent League of Legends leak we now have the details about the latest Champion. Jhin The Virtuoso is coming to the game and making a grand entrance.
Riot Games have revealed the character with the following description:
“Jhin’s assembling his gun and orchestrating his grand entrance onto the Rift. He’s meticulous and calculating – League’s slowest marksman yet. But when the murderous artist gets you in his sights, when he catches you off-guard, there’s not much that’ll save you from an inevitable, perfect death.”
His Passive ability is Whisper, which is his gun. This chambers four shots which provide critical hits and apply extra damage based on the targets missing health. After firing the four shots, it will take him time to reload. Be aware his critical attacks offer less damage than normal.
When it comes to laning he does not take the typical approach of a marksman. He tends to handpick his opponent to attack. It’s best to keep an eye on the ammo count and be ready for that use of the fourth bullet and the inevitable reload. The fourth bullet is always the deadliest.
When it comes to Skirmishing he likes to make use of his traps. This includes Captive Audience traps that tend to be laid on the easiest path to the dragon. He also gets advance notice of impending arrivals giving him time to use his Deadly Flourish. With the Dancing Grenade being brought in use for grouped enemies.
When it comes to fighting in a team, Jhin offers two strategies for the start and end of the battle. This includes again the use of Deadly Flourish and Dancing Grenades when he works as a team. When the enemy flees, he is also ready to make use of Whisper to pick them off as they run away. The second style is a stealthier approach where his firepower locks down his opponents.
When it works to characters he works well with Darius, Nautilus and Morgana. He struggles against Yasuo, Jarvan IV, and Lucian.
Riot promise to reveal more of Jhin’s story soon. We’ll have to wait and see what they have left to reveal.
