Nilah was announced in a cinematic that unveiled some of her play style as a mobile, melee carry with a giant whip made of water. The full toolkits for Nilah and her abilities are as follows:

Passive – Joy Unending

“If Nilah last hits a minion, she and the nearest allied champion gain 50% of the experience that would normally be lost from sharing with nearby allies.

Nilah gains additional effectiveness from heals and shields given to her by allied champions. When a nearby ally casts an ability that heals or shields Nilah or themselves, Nilah grants the additional benefit to both herself and her ally.”

Q – Formless Blade

“Passive: Attacks and ability damage against champions ignore some of their armor and heal Nilah for part of the damage dealt. This effect scales with crit chance and can overheal, granting Nilah a shield.

Active: Nilah strikes in a line damaging all enemies hit. Hitting an enemy increases Nilah’s attack range and attack speed for a few seconds. Additionally, her basic attacks will splash in a cone, dealing additional damage.”

W – Jubilant Veil

“Nilah envelopes herself in mist, causing her to briefly gain movement speed, reduce incoming magic damage and dodge all incoming basic attacks. Touching an ally champion hides them in the mist, granting them the same bonuses for half the duration.”

E – Slipstream

“Nilah dashes through a target unit, damaging all enemies she passes through. Nilah can hold 2 charges of Slipstream at once.

Nilah can cast Formless Blade (Q) during Slipstream to pull a wave in her path, dealing damage and activating her empowered attacks.”

R – Apotheosis

“Nilah spins her weapon in an area around her, dealing damage and pulling enemies in toward the center with a final burst. This damage heals Nilah for a portion of the damage dealt, converting excess healing into a shield. The healing and shielding scales with critical strike chance and is shared with nearby allies.”

Nilah is available soon on PBE ahead of the upcoming Star Guardian 2022 event. She will be fully available in Patch 12.13 on July 14, 2022.
