League of Legends Briar Splash Art
The excitement reached a fever pitch when a leaked splash art emerged, offering players a sneak peek at Briar’s appearance. The image portrays a youthful vampire with a pallid complexion and dark attire. The contrast between her dark colors and platinum-white hair, tinged with hints of red, creates a visually striking image. Notably, a massive spiky pillory hovers above her, crowned by a conspicuous red gem.
A significant discussion point revolves around Briar’s feet, sparking community conversations about her youthful appearance and appropriate discourse.
League of Legends Briar Lore
Riot’s Product Lead for LoL champions, Lexi “Riot Lexical” Gao, provided insights into League of Legends Briar’s inception in an April 2023 blog post. He revealed that while initially exploring various kit possibilities infused with her insatiable hunger, the team eventually settled on a diver or skirmisher jungler playstyle. The turning point in her conceptualization arrived when August Browning introduced a groundbreaking concept that set the tone for her development.
According to data miners and leaks from Big Bad Bear, Briar’s lore suggests she is a product of a failed experiment by the secretive Noxian organization, Black Rose. As a consequence of this experiment, she has become an uncontrollable force, necessitating her confinement in a pillory. This device acts as both a restraint and a tool to channel her volatile energies. Without the pillory, she descends into a ravenous frenzy, driven by her insatiable thirst for “Knowledge and Blood.”
League of Legends Briar release date
Briar’s introduction occurred during Riot Games’ Season 2023 LoL Pls video, where she was aptly labeled the “hangry jungler,” encapsulating her blend of hunger and anger.
As per recent revelations from Riot, Briar’s release might occur sooner than anticipated. In a Reddit post, Riot Meddler, the Head of the League Studio, hinted at a potential debut for League of Legends Briar before Worlds 2023. This indicates a probable release sometime in September, coinciding with the mid-October commencement of Worlds.
Also, according to leaks, Briar is likely to hot the PBE (Public Beta Environment) servers on August 29th. Subsequently, she is expected to join the live servers with Patch 13.18, slated for release on Thursday, September 14th, 2023.
While the leaked League of Legends Briar splash art is visually captivating, its authenticity is yet to be confirmed. Regardless, the League of Legends community eagerly awaits Briar’s arrival, poised to explore her abilities and uncover the mysteries she brings to Summoners’ Rift.
