CertainlyT Suggests Next Champion Has Huge Shield and Sword

A few hours back, a summoner voiced concern about Leona, complaining about her character design:

You get this chick with a huge shield and sword, covered in gold. Anybody looking at her, that doesn't know who she is, will immediately think of her as a bruiser.
As a response, RiotCertainlyT (designer for Darius) replied with a simple:
"You're not going to like our next champion." Source
From this limited exchange of words, it seems like the next champion on the list is yet another female champion with a huge shield and sword! (She might even be covered in gold as well?!)

On the other hand, it seems very very unlikely that this champion will be primarily designed as a support role, especially considering that Nami was only recently introduced to the league.

Chinese Iron Solari Leona
I spy a comrade in the near future!

What do you guys think about this? Any other speculations on what the new champion might be like? Comment below!

  1. He probably meanta that the champ doesn't look like the role they are meant to be played as, just like Leona.

    That's possible too jee, he did take some specific excerpts from the original post and left other things out though. We shall see!

  3. I doubt he was implying the next champ has a big shield. Seemed more like he was implying that they aren't what you would expect based on their visuals, sort of like Sejuani also. Chick on a boar with a huge flail and does pure magic damage. Riot does a good job at doing that, and it's kind of annoying.

    That's a good point cows, I thought sejuani would be physical too when I first saw her as well!
