Riot Games, a leading publisher and developer of League of Legends, has just introduced a new support character for the game. Nami, the Tidecaller, is a water caster who is able to control the energies of the water using it to restore the life of allies and defeat enemies and their attacks.
Nami’s abilities are as follows:
Surging Tides (Passive): Allied champions affected by Nami?s abilities have their movement speeds increased for a short duration.
Aqua Prison: Nami sends a bubble of water into the air to a targeted location that deals magic damage and displaces enemies hit by the bubble.
Ebb and Flow: Unleashes a surge of water that can target an enemy or allied champion. The water can bounce from champion to champion and deals magic damage to enemy champions and heals allied champions.
Tidecaller?s Blessing: Nami buffs an allied champion, adding extra magic damage and a slow to their attacks.
Tidal Wave: Nami summons a massive Tidal Wave from her position. The wave deals magic damage and slows all enemy units it passes through. Enemies closest to the initial spawn point are slowed for a shorter duration than those farther away, but all are slowed for a significant length of time and Tidal Wave has a large range.
“Nami?s kit gives her the potential to impact every phase of your games. In lane, Nami excels at applying constant pressure to the enemy. The buffs provided by Tidecaller?s Blessing allow her lane partner to come out ahead in exchanges, and the long-distance stun from Aqua Prison can keep low health enemies from engaging safely. Moreover, because her healing skill also bounces to damage nearby enemies, Nami?s core support abilities work best when her partner is on the attack.”
