It hasn’t even been a week since the latest champion release and a lot of people are trying her out and checking if they can make it work. This, giant scissor wielding champion, is an up-and-close type of champion. Magic-AP Damage dealer with some mobility and some crowd control.
Q - SNIP SNIP! Gwen snips her scissors in a cone up to 6 times dealing magic damage. Gwen deals true damage to units in the center and applies her passive to them on each snip.
W - HALLOWED MIST Gwen summons mist that protects her from enemies outside of it. She can only be targeted by enemies who enter the mist.
E - SKIP 'N SLASH Gwen dashes a short distance then gains attack speed, attack range, and on-hit magic damage for a few seconds. If she hits an enemy during that time, this Ability's cooldown is partially refunded.
R - NEEDLEWORK Gwen hurls a needle that slows enemies hit, deals magic damage, and applies A Thousand Cuts to champions hit. This ability can be cast up to two more times, with each cast throwing additional needles and dealing more damage. Gwen must hit an enemy between each cast to unlock the next one.
Gwen also has a passive effect called “A Thousand Cuts” - Gwen's attacks deal bonus magic damage based on the target's health. She heals for a portion of the damage dealt to champions by this effect.
Currently, Gwen is being played mostly in the Top Lane. Some of her games are in the Mid Lane and very rarely she can be found in the jungle. These numbers will undoubtedly change over the upcoming week and settle down in one role. Our guess it's going to be Top Lane with some flex potential to Mid.
Gwen also has the latest themed Space Groove skin, It comes in 9 chrome variants too!
