6 Leaked Runeterra Champions That Will Join Existing Regions in Upcoming Expansion

Disclaimer: this article contains unofficial spoilers about the new Legends of Runeterra set.

Welcome to the third part in our series of articles that introduce leaked champions of the upcoming Legends of Runeterra expansion!

If you missed our Bilgewater region deep dive, be sure to check it out. In that one, we also explain where the leaks are coming from, and how trustworthy they actually are (spoiler – they are very much so). Here’s a link to the post that explores Targon region and it’s glorious heroes. There you can also find some speculations about the release time-table of the future expansion.

Today we will introduce six champions that will presumably be released along with Bilgewater expansion – one for each existing region. Please enjoy!

Demacia: Quinn

Demacia’s Wings

She and her legendary eagle, Valor, share an unbreakable bond, and their foes are often slain before they realize they are fighting not one, but two of the kingdom’s greatest heroes. Nimble and acrobatic when required, Quinn takes aim with her crossbow while Valor marks their elusive targets from above, making them a deadly pair on the battlefield.”

Sejuani herself spearheads the most dangerous of these attacks from the saddle of her drüvask boar Bristle, using her True Ice flail to freeze and shatter her enemies.”

Now, Swain commands from the front lines, marching against a coming darkness that only he can see—in glimpses gathered by shadowy ravens from the corpses all around him. In a swirl of sacrifice and secrets, the greatest secret of all is that the true enemy lies within.”
