We’ve known that Illaoi the Kraken Princess has been making her way to League of Legends but the day has finally arrived. The champion has made her way to the game and is available today.

Available in the store, the Void Bringer Illaoi is available for 975 RP today, though usually priced at 1350. If you want to purchase the Champion Launch bundle it will cost you 1462 RP (normally priced at 1950 RP). These discounts will end at 23:59 November 30.

The Official Description for Illaoi introduces her:

“Most champions arm themselves with swords or guns or magic or whatever, but Illaoi’s bringing a freakin’ god to the Rift. One of the new breed of juggernauts, she’s a slow but impactful solo laner in any game, with tentacles that offer huge zone control once they worm their way into a game. And while she lacks traditional gap closers to start fights, she can pull the spirits from distant squishies and destroy them, rendering yet another vessel for Illaoi’s god, Nagakabouros.”

Her abilities include the power to spawns a tentacle from nearby walls which will then interact with the Champions abilities. Strong, but a slow character you need to be wary to be careful with her abilities especially in the early game. During battles though she is a powerful character who can take the battle to the front of the pack.

During battles, characters she works well with are Orianna, Blitzcrank, and Lulu. Be aware though she tends to struggle against Vayne, Janna, And Ziggs.
