Aphelios: The Weapon of the Faithful
League of Legends latest champion, Aphelios, has hit the PBE, and Riot Games has prepared a feedback thread to all players that wish to participate in the improvement of the champion. Revealed on November 19th, the marksman is making waves in the LoL community for its unusual kit, featuring five different weapons to fight with.
