Coming after Smolder as Season 2024's second champion, Riot Games and League of Legends have announced its newest champion, Aurora, as well as her abilities, kit, role, splash art, and more.

The Witch Between Worlds

She will bunny-hop into the rift during patch 14.14, scheduled to come out on July 17, 2024.

League of Legends – Aurora Abilities

League of Legends' newest champion is a ranged Mage, meant to be played in either Top lane or Mid lane. Her kit mainly revolves around poking the enemy and using her increased movement speed and invisibility from her skill to keep herself safe.

Not only that, but she also has the ability to effectively cage the entire enemy team, preventing them from running away and making it easy for her own team to wipe them out.

Passive – Spirit Abjuration

If Aurora damages an enemy 3 timeswith her spells and attacks, she will perform an exorcism, dealing a percentage of the enemy’s max health as magic damage and freeing a spirit that will empower her healing her every second, and enter Spirit Mode, granting additional movement speed for a short duration.

For every additional spirit following Aurora her bonus movement speed will increase.

Q – Twofold Hex

Aurora fires a blast of cursed energy in a direction, dealing magic damage to enemies hit and marking them with spirit energy.

Recast: Aurora ends the curse, drawing back in the spirit energy to herself, dealing magic damage to enemies passed through based on their missing health.

W – Across the Veil

Aurora hops in a direction.

Upon landing, Aurora enters the spirit realm, becoming invisible and entering Spirit Mode for a short duration.

Takedowns on enemy champions within 3 seconds of damaging them will reset the cooldown of Across the Veil.

E – The Weirding

Aurora unlocks a window to the spirit realm, which sends out a blast of spirit magic, dealing magic damage in an area and applies a decaying slow over a short duration.

The force of the blast knocks Aurora back slightly.

R – Between Worlds

Aurora unlocks a rift to the spirit realm, sending out a pulse of spirit energy that deals magic damage and slows enemies hit.

The area merges with the spirit realm for a short duration, giving Aurora an empowered Spirit Mode doubling her bonuses while she’s in it, and allowing her to travel from one end of the area to the other by crossing the threshold.

Any enemies attempting to cross the threshold are slowed after being pushed back toward the center of the area.

Aurora can recast this ability to end the effect early.

Aurora Splash Art and Lore

“I see the spirit realm and material realm simultaneously.”

Born to a Vastayan Bryni tribe, in the Freljordian village Aamu, Aurora grew up with the unique ability to see the veil between the spirit and material realms. Aurora struggled to connect with her peers, instead finding companionship with nearby spirits.

Determined to learn more about the spirit realm, Aurora left her village to travel across the Freljord. While assisting the region's spirits, she met and befriended a forgotten demigod, Hestrelk (or Haestryr), giving her a new goal: become strong enough to help her friend.
