Following the Zaun Amorphous Experiment, Zac has been revealed.
For the past week, the League of Legends Facebook page has been teasing fans with snippets of new champion, Zac. Well, just a moment ago the curtain was lifted and the full breakdown of the new champion was released. Summoners, I present to you Zac, the secret weapon.
Zac is one of the most unique champions in the game. He has the ability to play both top lane and jungle whilst still managing to stay efficient. At all times, players must try to keep the balance between health-cost abilities and his regeneration mechanic or they will not succeed in the Rift.
At first, Zac might seem like a basic champion, but his abilities make up for this as they allow him to output damage whilst maintaining a high sustain, all thanks to his passive ability.
Speaking of abilities, here they are:
Cell Division (passive) – When any of Zac’s abilities hit an enemy, a piece of him falls to the ground. Zac can pick up fallen pieces to recover health. When Zac dies he splits into four blobs. These fragments will attempt to reform over a short duration. If any survive, Zac revives with a percentage of his maximum health based on the number of remaining blobs.
Stretching Strike - Zac throws a two-handed punch that deals damage and slows targets in a line.
Unstable Matter - Zac’s body explodes outward, dealing flat damage to surrounding enemies. Enemies struck also take damage based on their maximum health.
Elastic Slingshot – Zac is immobilized as he charges up a dash toward the target location. The range of Elastic Slingshot increases up to a cap as Zac charges the ability. Zac then fires himself towards the target location, damaging and stunning all nearby enemies upon landing.
Let’s Bounce – Zac bounces into the air, immediately knocking up, slowing and damaging nearby enemies. Once airborne, he bounces three times, dealing damage with each impact.
Damn, those are looking good. Thankfully, Zac doesn’t have any mana cost so you can use this to your advantage and build some early game AP to get off some quick, efficient ganks. Not only that, but due to his Ultimate move and Elastic slingshot, you can navigate the rift at high speeds whilst still maintaining a damage output when near champions. This means that, when in team fights, Zac will prove a valuable asset as he has both crowd control, speed and sustain. Nice.
