Hwei Abilities, Release Date & More

Hewi could be released before the end of 2024
by Tit Krajnik on November 19, 2023   

At League of Legends World Championship 2023, Riot Games unveiled Hwei, a new LoL champion, which is set to release soon. While Riot hasn’t shared much information about Hwei, there’s a lot we already know about the new artillery mage.


League of Legends has released several new champions in 2023; however, it’s fair to say that Riot’s frequency of releasing new champions this year hasn’t been as high as in earlier days.

But while we’ve seen only three new champions in 2023 (Milio, Briar, and Naafiri), Hwei might become the fourth new LoL champion to be released this year.

When Will Hwei Release?

Even though Riot Games confirmed that Hwei is the next LoL champion to enter the Rift, the company has yet to confirm when Hwei will be released. There’s a chance he’ll join the list of playable champions by the end of the year; however, there’s also a chance we won’t be able to play Hwei on live servers until 2024.

Champion releases have been delayed in the past, mainly due to Riot Games not waiting to release an unfinished champion. But considering Riot has already shared a general outline of what Hwei is and how he’ll play, the champion might be in the latter stages of development, making a 2023 release a real possibility.

Hwei Abilities

According to what we know about Hwei abilities, the champion has real potential to become the most complex champion in League of Legends. Unlike most other champions, which have four abilities, Hwei will come with a total of 10, using a unique stance system.


Hwei’s damaging abilities against enemy champions mark them. Hitting marked enemies with another ability creates an explosion, detonating and dealing magic damage to all enemies in range.

Subject: Disaster

Stance focused solely on dealing damage.

QQ: Devastating Fire

Hwei paints a blazing fireball that flies out in the target direction. It explodes on the first enemy hit or at max range, dealing magic damage plus percent max health magic damage to all enemies in an area.

QW: Severing Bolt

Hwei paints a long-range, devastating bolt at the target location. After a delay, the bolt strikes, dealing magic damage.

QE: Molten Fissure

Hwei paints a field of exploding volcanic eruptions, creating lingering lava in its path.

Every eruption deals magic damage to enemies hit. Enemies in the lava area are dealt magic damage per second and are slowed.

Subject: Serenity

Stance focused on utility.

WQ: Fleeting Current

Hwei paints a current of swift waters in a line for a few seconds that grants movement speed to himself and his allies.

WW: Pool of Reflection

Hwei forms a protective pool at a target location that lasts for a few seconds. Allied champions inside the area gain a shield, increasing in value over a few seconds while in the area.

WE: Stirring Lights

Hwei paints three swirling lights that circle him for several seconds. Hwei’s next 3 attacks or spells deal bonus magic damage and grant mana on hit.

Subject: Torment

Stance with a lot of CC abilities, including fear, a root, and a pull.

EQ: Grim Visage

Hwei launches a terrifying face that strikes the first enemy hit, dealing magic damage and causing them to flee for a brief duration.

EW: Gaze of the Abyss

Hwei paints an abyssal eye at a target location that grants vision and locks onto the nearest visible enemy champion. After a short delay, the eye fires at the locked-on champion, rooting the first enemy in its path for a few seconds and dealing magic damage to them.

EE: Crushing Maw

Hwei paints crushing jaws that deal magic damage to enemies hit and pulls them toward the center, slowing them by a set amount that quickly decays.

Ultimate: Spiraling Despair

Hwei launches a vision of pure despair that sticks to an enemy champion for a few seconds. The vision expands and overwhelms all enemies it touches, dealing magic damage every second.

Enemies within the zone are afflicted with stacks of Despair over time. Each stack of Despair applies a stacking slow. Upon completion, the vision shatters, dealing magic damage.

While Riot Games has shared Hwei’s abilities, we still don’t have any information on damage numbers or cooldowns. But it shouldn’t take long before Riot shares more details about League’s newest mage.
