The latest League of Legends champion is a support/tank with a magnificent mustache.

Riot Games has just announced the next champion that will join the League of Legends: Braum, the Heart of the Freljord. Braum is a support champion with a big shield and a magnificent mustache, who uses stuns and ice to aid his teammates. As per usual, no timeframe for Braum’s release has been announced, but we can probably expect him in the near future. Here’s his list of abilities:

  • Passive: Concussive Blows
    Braum’s basic attacks apply Concussive Blows. Once the first stack is applied, all basic attacks from Braum and his allies apply further stacks. Targets that sustain four stacks are stunned and suffer bonus magic damage. After being stunned, Braum cannot apply Concussive Blows to his target again for a moderate duration.
  • Q: Winter’s Bite
    Braum propels freezing ice from his shield in a straight line skillshot, dealing magic damage (based on Braum’s max health), slowing and applying a stack of Concussive Blows to the first target hit.

  • W: Stand Behind Me
    Braum leaps to the aid of a nearby ally, positioning himself between his target and their nearest enemy champion, and granting both Braum and his target bonus armor and magic resist based on his total armor and magic resist.
  • E: Unbreakable
    Braum raises his shield in a target direction, negating the damage from the first attack from the shield’s direction and reducing the damage of all subsequent attacks as long as the shield is raised. Braum intercepts projectiles with Unbreakable, causing them to hit him and then be destroyed. He also gains a minor speed boost until he lowers his shield.

Braum certainly looks like an interesting champion for those who prefer the “offensive” supports such as Leona and Taric (as opposed to “sustain” supports such as Sona and Soraka).
