Another game changing rework has been up Riot’s sleeve for League of Legends account users and this time they tackle one of the oldest Champions in League of Legends. Riot has been working towards giving each Champion a considerable impact to the game especially in team fights. They’ve been releasing new Champions, new items, changing the Meta, and reworking Champions. On today’s article we will be talking about the new rework for Poppy, Keeper of the Hammer.
Poppy, Keeper of the Hammer for League of Legends Account Users
Poppy is one of the oldest Champions to the game, having been there from the start of Season 1. She is a female Yordle known for her large pigtails, brute strength, tankiness and her mighty hammer that could put Thor to shame. Throughout the years, however, she has been widely overlooked and one of the least played Champions. Riot has changed that with her recent rework by changing her skills and overall aesthetic look.
You have to admit that Poppy’s new look is a major improvement, much like Tristana’s. She has been given a cuter vibe with her large purple eyes and lovely blonde hair in pigtails. Now, instead of the previous menacing baby-like face in her original snapchat she shows a pretty face full of innocence.
Poppy: New Skills and Abilities for League of Legends Account Users
Her skills have been drastically changed providing more sustain and cc.
Occasionally she will throw her buckler as her basic attack which gives her bonus range and attack damage. Once the buckler hits the ground, Poppy can pick it up to gain a temporary shield. However, if an enemy walks over her buckler they will destroy it. If a target is killed with the Iron Ambassador, the buckler will automatically return to Poppy instead of falling on the ground.
Poppy smashes her hammer to the ground, dealing damage and slowing enemies in a small area. After a few seconds, the crushed ground erupts and deals the same amount for the second time.
Passive: Poppy gains bonus Armor and Magic Resist. The bonus is doubled if Poppy is below 40% health.
Active: Poppy gains a burst of Movement Speed. Additionally, while Steadfast Presence is active, she creates a magic barrier around her that stops enemy dashes and dealing magic damage to enemies.
This ability is the only ability retained from the original Poppy. She dashes towards an enemy dealing Physical Damage and carries them forward for a short distance. When dashed towards a wall and collides, she deals additional Physical Damage and stuns them.
Poppy charges up her hammer, spinning it around above her head and slowing herself down in the process. Once cast a second time, she unleashes her mighty Hammer, creating a fissure that deals damage and knocks back enemies for a considerably far distance towards their corresponding base. The fissure length and knockback increases, scaling with the channel duration.
