The new LoL Naafiri cinematic has been released and leaks are constantly being dropped, stirring up enthusiasm for the upcoming Darkin Assassin champion in the League of Legends community.
League of Legends players have been eagerly anticipating the release of new champions announced by Riot for Season 13. Among the champions unveiled were the Ixtali support Milio, the assassin Naafiri, the vampire jungler Briar, and an ink mage for the mid-lane.
While Milio has already made his debut, all eyes are now on Naafiri as the next champion in line.
Recently, a leaked ability icon related to LoL Naafiri’s passive ability has surfaced, offering a glimpse into what players can expect from this exciting addition to the roster. Additionally, rumors of a potential Naafiri Soul Fighter skin in the upcoming summer event have sparked further interest among the League of Legends community.
LoL Naafiri Cinematic Revealed
Finally available is the cinematic trailer for Naafiri, the new League of Legends champion. In the trailer, the champion was portrayed as a beast and was seen with her group of hounds.
The covert devices that contain the Darkin are meant to contain them and put an end to their reign of terror. Only if they had a live vessel will they be able to flee. Naafiri, who is held captive inside a dagger, is one of these Darkin. She was unintentionally awoken, and now, according to folklore, she’s searching for her clan.
In the League of Legends universe, where there are presently only three Darkins, Naafiri will be the fourth.
LoL Naafiri Ability Icon leak
Big Bad Bear, a well-known leaker, recently discovered new files in the PBE files for Patch 13.13. Among these files was an ability icon named “naafiri_base_overheadindicator02,” which provides a glimpse into LoL Naafiri’s passive ability.
Interestingly, these files were found under the TFT (Teamfight Tactics) set 9, indicating a potential future appearance of Naafiri in the TFT game mode.
LoL Naafiri Soul Fighter Skin leak
With the upcoming summer event on the horizon, details about new skins have started to emerge. One of the revelations is the introduction of the Soul Fighter skin line, influenced by popular fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
Leak sources have now indicated that Soul Fighter Naafiri skin might also be in the pipeline, and the new champion might join the others to receive a skin from this line.
In addition to Naafiri, other champions expected to receive skins from the Soul Fighter line include Samira, Shaco, Evelynn, Lux, Pyke, Gwen, Viego, Jhin, and Sett. Three champions—Samira, Pyke, and Gwen—have already been confirmed to receive Soul Fighter skins, with Samira receiving an ultimate skin, Pyke obtaining a Prestige skin, and Gwen receiving an epic skin.
Now that we are done with the recent LoL Naafiri leaks, let’s get to who Naafiri in League of Legends is and when will this new champion released.
LoL Naafiri: The New Darkin Assassin
As the fourth Darkin champion to be introduced in League of Legends, Naafiri follows in the footsteps of Aatrox, Varus, and Rhaast. Described as a mid-lane assassin with a focus on macro play, Naafiri is expected to offer a mechanically simple but strategically demanding playstyle.
Speculation suggests that she may embody the form of a dog or wolf, and her abilities may incorporate a pack-hunting theme, potentially introducing a new mechanic that involves controlling multiple entities.
LoL Naafiri Release Date
Based on the latest reports and leaks, Naafiri’s release is expected to coincide with the summer event.
As the Soul Fighter skin line is set to be released during the same timeframe, it is highly likely that Naafiri will receive skin from this line. Big Bad Bear’s YouTube video further supports this notion, as the leaker suggests that Naafiri will indeed be getting a Soul Fighter skin.
Well, with the leaked ability icon and the potential Soul Fighter skin, anticipation is mounting for Naafiri’s arrival in League of Legends Season 13. As players eagerly await the unveiling of Naafiri’s full kit and gameplay mechanics, the leaked ability icon provides a tantalizing preview of what’s to come.
The possibility of an LoL Naafiri Soul Fighter skin adds another layer of excitement to the upcoming summer event, as players envision Naafiri embracing the fighting game theme alongside other champions.
