The next champion to compete League of Legendshuge selection is a courageous pre-teen from the Ixtal region. Milio, the Gentle Flame, is a 12-year-old boy who has mastered the elemental art of fire. Unlike champions like Annie or Brand, he doesn’t use his powers for destruction. Instead, he uses fire to aid and heal, joining the dragon job as a wizard support.
Milio is a kid on an adventure and he looks super friendly. He carries a huge sculpted backpack called furnasita, and he is accompanied by friendly little fire elementals called fuemigos. Unfortunately, his family was expelled for a past offense, so while Milio is a light-hearted boy, he has some pretty serious goals. He plans to join the Ixtal elementalist order and regain his family’s lost prestige so they can return to the capital from the outskirts of the overgrown region.
Milio doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but he offers a lot of useful tools in his set to protect his team and turn a team fight.
Milio pairs well with snipers like Kog’Maw and Caitlyn, thanks to the fact that it both protects allies and increases their natural range of attack. He also does well in late-game team fights, removing ultimates like Amumu’s Curse of the Sad Mummy or the charm from Seraphine’s Encore.
This new champion will enter the test realm on Tuesday, where players can experiment with him outside of live servers. He will seriously join the rest of the roster on March 22 and will hopefully receive a warm welcome from support fans. For a full rundown of Milio’s abilities, find their descriptions below:
