After teasing earlier this year league of legends’ The jungle will soon host some pets that will follow the jungle around and help them fight in and out of it, Riot Games revealed the first look at these handy creatures this week in a preview of the game’s 2023 plans. Three different jungle pets have been revealed along with the new Smite system called ‘Avatar Smites’ which pairs with pets of choice for jungle players and replaces the existing Smite system of batting challenge and fearsome reputation.
The three pets are Noxian Embercat, Ixtali Ixamander, and Ionian Cloudl Cheap. Players in the jungle role will buy one at the start of the match just as they buy either an Emberknife or a Hailblade currently, and by killing monsters in the jungle, these pets get “gifts” allowing them to upgrade the player Smite and give players additional buffs.
“The jungle is a dangerous place and it is dangerous to go alone, so take one of the pet jungle animals to buy them from the in-game store as eggs!” said riot. “These pets will gain ‘fun’ by killing monsters and slowly over time as the game progresses which will help them to evolve. Once evolving, the pets will give their unique owners which provide them with different abilities.”
The first visuals of these pets in the woods can be seen as well as more in-depth previews of what they can do below.
- Noxian Embercat: This will be the pet of choice for jungle gamers looking to play more aggressively. It will provide additional slowdown and damage.
- Ixtali Ixamander: Jungle Pet is perfect for jungle lovers who are looking forward to the frontline and tanks for their teams. It will provide a shield based on your health that provides slow and persistent resistance when collapsing.
- Cloud Ion: The jungle pet would be great for jungle lovers who are looking to spin and move around the map more quickly. It will provide additional movement speed.
These new pet jungle animals and a lot of other changes will spend a good amount of time on the PBE servers first right before they launch, so expect to see these effects and their individual values change over time.
