Dubbed “The Gloomiest”, Vex is the newest champion in the League of Legends roster. After being teased in Ruination and Sentinels of Light visuals, this “chibi-sized” character is finally coming to the PBE servers.
The mage yordle was supposed to be released earlier, but has been delayed due to “her shadow tech”, wrote Riot Reav3 on the League of Legends subreddit. “The insights article will go into a lot more detail on the shadow tech and what it took to make.”
For now, fans will have to contend with Riot Games’ official Champion Trailer that showcases her unique and awesome voice lines.
Proof that Vex has the best voice lines in League of Legends
The trailer opens with Zoe, Ivern, and Fizz causing a ruckus in the jungle on Summoner’s Rift. In response, a sleeping Vex awakes, and snipes Zoe, “Another person to kill. Shadow, can you handle it?”
As each of these champions interacts with Vex, she swiftly uses her abilities to annihilate them, showing no mercy.
In the next cut scene, when she walks into mid lane — supposedly where she’s meant to be played as a mage — she instantly expresses her disdain for people through her voice lines. It’s here in the champion trailer that we also learn that she possesses the ability to cause fear as a form of crowd control.
List of Vex voice lines featured in her Champion Trailer
- “Another person to kill. Shadow, can you handle it?”
- To Zoe: “Can we just… not? That’s better.”
- To Ivern: “Ugh… look at that tree. So stupid.”
- To Fizz: “Just keep walking yordle, I’ve nothing to say to you.”
- “Uh… Shadow… carry me.”
- “Ugh… people.”
- “Way to die, normie.”
- “Oh Viego… IS OKAY. I mean, he’s, whatever, I guess.”
- To Amumu: “You’re sad and dead? We should hang out.”
- “Man, walking sucks! Do the thing, shadow!”
- “Cool. You know what shadow, sometimes, I almost don’t hate you.”
Besides interacting with Amumu, the post-cut scene shows her with another dead champion, Mordekaiser. After he uses his ultimate Realm of Death on her, she says, “Sup ghost, we hangin’ later? Cool.”
Even Riot Games is jumping on the apathetic Vex train, for their YouTube description reads, “Color? Happiness? Caring about stuff? That’s so overrated.”
She’s outright lazy, hates everyone in the world, can barely tolerate her own shadow, finds the dead interesting, and most of the time, just wants to be left alone. How cool is that?
Vex’s dark appearance and debut skin
Sure, League of Legends includes sad champions like Amumu, but none quite like Vex. She makes goth fashionable, and even though her entire palette is shrouded in gloom, her size still makes her look cute.
As an ally of Ruination and the Shadow Isles, her default skin comprising dark grey, royal purple, and dark turquoise hair colors is in line with other champions in the lore like Thresh, Viego, Yorick, and Mordekaiser.
At the very end of the champion trailer, we get a glimpse of the skin that’s going to be bundled with her release, which is a little bit more colorful than her default outfit. Just a bit.
Though she prefers a more murky tone, you’ve got to admit, those Paddle Pop ice cream colors do look good on her.
Look out Goth Annie, for a new challenger with even thicker eyeliner has arrived on the Rift.
