ImageDiana, the latest champion to be announced, has finally joined the League. But she didn't come alone. A minor patch to fix the balance of Zyra and Alistar has been performed.

Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over! Diana, Scorn of the Moon is now available in the stores and ready to enter the Fields of Justice on your side. If you couldn't make up your mind whether Diana is your kind of champion or not until now, check out the Champion Spotlight to see all of her abilities and moves live and in color.

Abilities:

Moonsilver Blade (Passive): Diana has increased Attack Speed. Every third strike cleaves nearby enemies for additional magic damage.

Crescent Strike: Diana swings her blade to unleash a bolt of lunar energy, afflicting enemies with Moonlight and dealing damage in an arc before exploding.

Pale Cascade: Diana creates three orbiting spheres that detonate on contact with enemies to deal damage in an area. She also gains a temporary shield that absorbs damage. This shield is refreshed if all three spheres detonate.

Moonfall: Diana draws in and slows all nearby enemies.

Lunar Rush (Ultimate): Diana teleports to an enemy and deals magic damage. Lunar Rush has no cooldown when used to teleport to a target afflicted with Moonlight.
