Bel'Veth’s Full Ability Kit Has Been Leaked Ahead of Release
Riot Games revealed that the next champion to grace the Summoner’s Rift would be a jungler from the Void. This jungler, who is yet to join the League of Legends roster, was already leaked ahead of the official announcement. According to leaks, the Void jungler is called Bel'Veth, the Void Empress and now her full ability kit has also been leaked.
Youtube channel posted a video on 11th May explaining all of Bel'Veth’s abilities. According to the leaks on Reddit, Bel'Veth is supposedly a hybrid champion like Volibear who can build both Ability Power (AP) and Attack Damage (AD), but leaning more towards AP. According to Ryscu and , these abilities are pretty much confirmed but the descriptions of her abilities may not be accurate at this juncture.
Former Cloud9 head coach and prominent League of Legends personality Nick “LS” De Cesare who on Ryscu’s channel opined that the leaks have been translated to English from another language. He said he was looking forward to seeing the champion and wondered if she would be teased during the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) 2022.
Bel'Veth’s leaked abilities
The following are the abilities of Bel'Veth:
Passive - Death In Lavender
Q - Void Surge
W - Above and Below
E - Royal Maelstrom
Ultimate - Endless Banquet
Notably, the names of Bel'Veth’s abilities were leaked when her model was making the rounds on social media.
Bel'Veth Passive: Death In Lavender
All enemy units including champions, jungle camps, epic monsters, siege, and super minions drop a “coral” when they die. Bel'Veth can collect these drops to stack her passive - Death in Lavender. This passive forms a swarm, based on the stacks. It grants her lifesteal against jungle camps and if Bel’Veth attacks a turret or an epic monster, she sends her swarm to it, healing her and damaging it. It consumes all stacks.
Q: Void Surge
Bel'Veth’s Q ability has a passive and an active.
Passive: Bel'Veth has an “arrow” in 4 diagonals.
Active: Bel'Veth dashes, deals damage, and applies a slow effect. It procs her passive to passed enemies while in Endless Banquet (R). When she damages a champion, a big or an epic monster (in the direction of the arrow) with her dash, her Q is fully restored to be cast again. However, using the ability against small monsters or minions in the direction of the arrow only restores 40% of the Q cooldown.
W: Above and Below
While casting Above and Below, Bel'Veth goes underground for a short time, gains movement speed, and goes through walls. In the end, she unburrows, dealing damage and knocking enemies in the area airborne. While in Endless Banquet, she becomes untargetable and grants a short stun after the airborne effect.
E: Royal Maelstrom
Bel'Veth starts channeling a vortex and while casting it, she cannot move. She pulls all enemies towards her and damages them for each second, and receives less damage during the cast. Much like Thornmail’s effect, she gives back a % of all damage she received from the attackers. While in Endless Banquet, this deals a % of true damage over a second, her damage reduction is higher, and at the end, she can explode the area.
R - Ultimate: Endless Banquet
Bel'Veth transforms into her true form for an unknown amount of seconds, much like Aatrox’s R - World Ender or Swain’s new R- Demonic Ascension. Casting this buffs all her abilities and she gains HP, magic resist, armor, and damage. While transformed, collecting (Passive stack) heals Bel'Veth for a %. She uses all her stacks to form a swarm of some unknown creatures (video says fishes), damaging enemy champions nearby. The swarm dies after some time, but it can be renewed by killing champions.
From the looks of it Bel'Veth is going to be like Rek’Sai but infinitely stronger. If these leaks are confirmed, League of Legends players will be in for a treat when this jungle champion releases since her kit is so damage-oriented and entertaining. Riot Games has not confirmed anything regarding Bel'Veth so far. Since these abilities are just leaks, players will have to take them with a pinch of salt and only time will tell if these are accurate.
