Bilgewater Faction Joins Runeterra, Bringing Fizz And A New Mechanic
Riot has finally announced Legends of Runeterra’s newest region, Bilgewater. This is the first region to be added to Runeterra and It’s first champion is none other than the playful trickster, Fizz.
Quick Impressions: Fizz truly represents his League of Legends character, being hard to catch and annoying. A strong one cost champion that rewards you for building up spell mana in order to continue developing while protecting your fizz. Once Fizz level’s up, he will begin to not only hit for larger chunks, but help turn spells into more creatures to help close games as Fizz creates an army for you. Expect to see Fizz swimming his way right to your Nexus on April 30th. New keyword: Plunder Plunder: A card triggers its plunder ability when played if you damaged the enemy nexus this round.
Quick Impressions: Plunder is an interesting mechanic that will incentivize players to play aggressive units in order to get the Plunder effect, while also making players make decisions on what to do when they are not able to attack profitably, or if you do not have the attack token. Plunder can be activated by things such as damaging spells as well, making sure Plunder isn’t too weak when you get behind. A plethora of new Bilgewater cards have been announced as well, with many utilizing the Plunder keyword which you can check out below:
