Phroxzon congratulated the developers who worked on Hwei. He added, "They did a fantastic job at executing on a fluid spellweaving caster and we hope players are going to love it."
According to Lexi “Riot Lexical” Gao, Hwei's mastery of his craft allows him to bring his artistic visions to life. His kit explores three different "subjects" of art. This gives him three different stances and has a total of nine abilities, apart from the ultimate spell.
