Meet Milio, League of Legends’ newest enchanter!

11:48 AM March 10, 2023

League of Legends introduced its newest support champion Milio, hailing from a previously unexplored area of Ixtal.

Milio’s Abilities


Passive – Fired Up!

  • Milio’s abilities enchant allies on touch, making their next damage deal a burst of extra damage and burn the target.

Q – Ultra Mega Fire Kick


  • Milio kicks a ball that knocks back an enemy. The ball launches upward on hit and falls toward the enemy, damaging and slowing enemies in the area upon impact.

W – Cozy Campfire

  • Milio creates an empowering zone that heals allies and increases attack range to those inside. The zone follows the ally nearest to the cast point.

E – Warm Hugs

  • Milio tosses a shield to an ally, temporarily increasing their movement speed

R – Breath of Life

  • Milio unleashes a wave of soothing flames that heal and remove crowd control effects from allies in range.

Riot on designing Milio: “This is a super exciting opportunity for us.”

Esports Inquirer also talked with the team that designed Milio. Lexi “Riot Lexical” Gao, Lead Producer for the Champions team, said that the overall intent with Milio was to create a true male enchanter, something that League has been lacking in its over a decade long tenure. The new representation also felt right to be placed in the lesser-explored region of Ixtal. “We haven’t seen a lot of [Ixtal], and players haven’t had the chance and opportunity to know that particular region, which is why this is a super exciting opportunity for us to give Ixtal a deeper look.”

His abilities also have an overlap with a fellow support and enchanter – Lulu. To this, Champion Designer Myles “Riot Emizery” Salholm said that “it’s a little apt that people describe him as ‘new Lulu’ to some degree… I think the comparisons that work is that he’s very slippery and that he’s good at being an enchanter first. That said, Lulu’s only primarily a shielder, [while] Milio pushes the bounds on both healing and shielding and is better at [protecting his teammates] in AoE.” He also pointed out the fact that Milio lacks in his ability to directly impact the enemy apart from his Q, and that the new enchanter relies on empowering his team to interact with enemies.
