Over the past week, Riot has been revealing all of the cards being added in World Ender. Head to one of the galleries below to get the full list of new cards and start building your decks!
Darkin Story so Far
Xolaani was once a beloved and respected healer, but when the wars broke out long ago, she lost sight of her purpose and used her hemomancy to manipulate her allies.
Now that she’s awoken again, powerful forces are rallying against her. Aatrox, the World-Ender, was once her former general, and Varus, the Arrow of Retribution, was once her ally. Even Kayle has descended, the celestial arbiter of justice, cannot sit idly by as Xolaani tears across the land – and Ryze, the secretive rune mage, will stop at nothing to keep the world in balance.
Three New Champions
Aatrox builds an army of terrifying Darkin with his Origin “The World Ender” that allows any non-champion Darkin to be included in deck building.
Ryze wields the power of the World Runes and brings the most expansive Origin yet, “The Rune Mage” allows Ryze to add any Burst spell during deck building.
Kayle metes out divine justice and introduces the new mechanic “Empowered” into the game.
The World Ender
You may put any non-champion Darkin into your deck during deckbuilding. Once you’ve played or summoned 3+ different other Darkin, draw an Aatrox.
The Rune Mage
You may put any non-targeted burst and focus spells into your deck during deckbuilding. At the start of the game, create 2 Delve Into The Past in your deck for each Ryze that started the game in your deck.
Transform allies equipped with Darkin equipment into their Darkin unit forms. If they are champions, they level up.
A unit has its empowered bonus while its power is at least the listed number.
The Bloodwoven event begins, exploring the alternate history where our Ascended Champions had fallen to Xolaani’s corruption and emerged a dark super power.
