Good to see that the splash art posts were seriously just overreactions she looks way better her and the champion looks like fun.

That leaked splash was a old unfinished splash art FYI

August is a genius. I've had the pleasure to support him on this project and it's always a blast working with him.

Eh, kinda heard it too, makes it seem like she is intended to be kind of Filipino, like the simultaneously releasing Valorant champion with the same looks and abilities?

Her voice actress is indeed Filipino

So it looks like she has a passive similar to ashe Q or Kayle passive, her Q is probably just a normal skillshot, like Jinx W? Her E looks like a normal dash, probably gives her a shield or something. W let's her scale walls like Talon. Ult is just, idk, blitzcrank R? It probably gives her a buttload of stats and is probably gonna be like a Vayne R where it's your "go time" button.

Her second passive is probably like "oh, attacks mark the enemy champion. Attacking them detonates the mark and increases movement speed. Scales with AP"

Normal? :3

We actually did darken her skin a bit more but it was after this trailer was made

Which of the two scrappy, Filipino electricity-wielding gun-havers with hair in two buns that glows when using their powers came first in production? Zeri or Spark?

Was it a cross promotional idea thing?

We will go into more detail on that in the devblog, but yes since her inception champions team and valorants agent team collaborated and worked on Neon/Zeri together. Both teams contributed to both characters

Is the hairstyle and hourglass and bandage on the cheek at all related to Kay? 👀

Side bet - Will she be nerfed or buffed for the first change?

I SURE HOPE ITS NEITHER

Don't worry I'll take care of it

Explains why her electricity isn't available all the time lmao

Lol that actually was part of it, or lead concept artist, Lonewingy, is Filipino and she was telling us how the electricity always goes out in thier. So we made that part of her

Hello Reav, I know you probably can't say too much yet but can you confirm or deny if the teased champs (Zeri, villanous support, overwhelming jungler and unusual botlaner) will be all for this year? Are you still aiming (pending any delays that might happen) for either a new mid or a toplaner this year?

And could you tell us who is working on the new botlaner in terms of art and gameplay? Thank you!

They are all currently planned for this year. Hopefully they won’t be all for this year. The bot laner is being worked on by Squad5, Sojyoo, and CarnivalKnights

Hi Reav3! I know you probably can't say, but gonna ask anyway just in case. Do you know how many patches are gonna be between Zeri and the support? I think the roadmap mentioned a few of them, can we expect the support soon? Have a nice day!

The support will come very soon yes

Hey Reav3, does the unique botlaner come out before the void jungler or after? The video makes it seem like the void jungler is first but on the recap video she's mentioned last and I have seen people claim the botlaner is first.

Anyway have a nice day and hope you're recovering well!

It’s support > Jungler > botlaner > Udyr right now. Of course we won’t release things until they are ready so that order is subject to change

Hello /u/Reav3

Hope you’re well, quick question.

Any more complex champions on the horizon? Aphelios is a masterpiece and I hope something like that is in the works.

The Jungler is definitely going to me more on the complex side of things. Not like Aphelios though
