League of Legends: Quinn and Valor Flying In
The latest champion to hit Riot’s League of Legends is the tag team combination of Quinn and Valor. Quinn is an AD carry champion assisted by her Eagle, Valor. Her skills are best served in the bottom lane where she can punish opposing champions. Both are expected to make their debut in the next patch.
Periodically, Valor marks enemies as Vulnerable. Quinn’s initial attack against Vulnerable targets will deal bonus physical damage.
Quinn’s skillshot involves sending Valor in a straight line. Valor stops at the first enemy that’s hit, then damages and temporarily blinds all nearby enemies.
Tag team: Valor damages and blinds all nearby enemies.
Attacking a Vulnerable target increases Quinn’s attack speed (40/50/60/70/80%) for several seconds (Passive ability).
Valor flies up and reveals a large area around him for 2 seconds including units in the brush and non-stealthed (Active ability).
Tag team: Valor permanently gains a large amount of attack speed (Passive). Valor reveals a large area around him including units in the brush and non-stealthed units (Active).
Quinn dashes to an enemy, deals physical damage (40/70/100/130/160) and slows the target briefly by 70% for 2 seconds. She then kicks back off her target and lands near her maximum attack range.
Tag team: Valor dashes to an enemy, damaging and slowing them briefly.
First cast: Valor replaces Quinn on the battlefield as a mobile melee attacker for 20 seconds. Valor can move through units and gains +80% movement speed (which gradually decreases to 20% while in combat)
Second cast (Skystrike): Quinn returns to perform Skystrike, dealing 100/150/200 to (+0.5*AD) physical damage to all enemies in a large area, increasing based on how much health they are missing. If Skystrike has not been cast before this ability ends, it will be cast automatically.
Valor has a priority system in marking targets with Vulnerable.
- Last enemy hit
- Lowest health enemy champion
- Lowest health enemy minion
Exercise care when using Vault because it’s possible for enemies to respond to Quinn when she attacks them. Vault also has the ability to traverse certain parts of the terrain. Her ultimate ability, Tag Team, can be used to cross long distances really fast. Use it to chase down weakened players or as an escape.
Quinn and Valor are an elite ranger team. With crossbow and claw, they undertake their nation’s most dangerous missions deep within enemy territory, from swift reconnaissance to lethal strikes. The pair’s unbreakable bond is deadly on the battlefield, leaving opponents blind and riddled with arrows long before they realize who they’re fighting: not one, but two Demacian legends.
As a young girl, Quinn shared a hunger for adventure with her twin brother. They dreamed of becoming knights, but lived a quiet, humble life in the rural borderlands of Demacia. Together they imagined triumphant battles in faraway lands, seizing glory for their king and slaying foes in the name of Demacian justice. When daydreams alone could no longer satisfy their warriors’ souls, they embarked on daring wilderness adventures in search of true danger. One such quest turned to tragedy when a terrible accident claimed her brother’s life. Overcome with grief, Quinn abandoned her dreams of knighthood.
On the anniversary of her loss, Quinn gathered the courage to return to the scene of the tragedy. To her surprise, she found a wounded Demacian eagle at the site of her brother’s death – a rare and beautiful bird long believed extinct. Quinn nursed the fledgling back to health, and as they grew up together, a deep bond formed between the two. She saw the same quality in her newfound friend that had lived within her brother, and so she gave him the name “Valor.” The pair found strength in each other, and together they pursued the dream she had once abandoned.
The Demacian army had never seen heroes like Quinn and Valor. Their deadly skills quickly set them apart from their rank-and-file peers, but many still had their doubts. How could a common-born girl, even with such a powerful creature at her side, forego years of military training? Quinn and Valor proved themselves on one critical mission, tracking down a Noxian assassin who had evaded an entire Demacian battalion. When they brought him to justice, they finally earned the admiration and respect of their nation. The two now serve as living, fighting icons of Demacian strength and perseverance. Together, Quinn and Valor will stand against any threat to their beloved home.
“Most soldiers only rely on their weapons. Few truly rely on each other.” – Quinn
