Gaius The Gleeful

Gleefully swiping his sickles through the fields of Teleria, Gaius joins the Knight Revenant Faction as a reward from the Easter 2022 Fragment Fusion Collection Event.

Gaius very much loves to play with Bombs and his tinkering and technological advancements have generated a unique and interesting kit. His A2 will place 2 bombs for 2 turns and also place a Sleep debuff on all enemies. Sleep is generally not ideal as any form of damage (including HP Burn) can wake a champion. The idea here is you utilise the sleep to ensure the 2 turn bombs can land. This may be risky in an Arena environment where masteries and artifact sets may be an issue allowing time for champions such as Wythir the Crowned or Raglin to fully cleanse the bombs away. His A3 has been designed to trigger all bombs and then kill anyone with Unkillable buff therefore being a direct counter to champions like Leorius or Skullcrown and to Swift Parry artifact sets.

The unique part of the kit is his passive. He will have a chance to place a bomb on each hit that detonates after 2 turns and if he dies all bombs on all enemies will detonate. This opens the door for some creative team compositions with both difficult to kill Gaius builds or super glass cannon builds.

With the limited number of good bomb champions, Gaius is one that is definitely worth picking up in our opinion.
