This is everything we know about this tiny champion.

Release Date


Vex went live with the LoL 11.19 update on Wednesday, September 22.

This means players can try her out in-game now!

Who is Vex

Vex, also known as the The Gloomist, made her debut in the Rise of the Sentinels even as an antagonist. She is a gloomy emo yordle from Bandle City, who hates happiness and color.

Think if Lulu had a polar opposite sister.


She will be available for 7800 BE/975 RP at launch in the in-game store, and has some skin options that are already great!



Vex will have for her base skin a similar look that the one she showed during the Sentinels of Light event.

Vex is one of the heroes that will receive a Dawnbringer Epic Skin part of the Chaos and Order alternative universe.

Dawnbringer Vex is part of the new content coming on the LoL 11.19 Night & Dawn 2021 event.

Vex Abilities

Q – Mistral Bolt

  • Vex unleashes a wave of mist in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies it passes through and accelerating in speed though reducing in width after traveling 500 units.

W - Personal Space

  • Vex emits a shockwave around her before the cast time, gaining a shield for 2.5 seconds and dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies.

E – Looming Darkness

  • Vex commands Shadow to fly to the target location, increasing the radius of the area as it travels. Upon arrival, Shadow deals magic damage to all nearby enemies and slows them for 2 seconds.

R – Shadow Surge

  • Vex commands Shadow to launch itself in the target direction, granting sight of the area along its path for 0.4 seconds each and dealing magic damage to all enemies hit.

Vex can produce an incredibly big amount of damage. Based on her kit, she will be able to counter most of the champions in the meta. This champion definitely will shake things up in the current meta.
