Gamescom reveals new League of Legends champion Syndra


Whenever a new AP mage character comes out, I always get excited.  Across the pond right now in Germany, Riot at Gamescom is showing off and allowing folk to play their even newer character then Rengar to League of Legends – Syndra.  From what I’ve gathered, she is a gravity based spell caster.  From the gameplay videos, she will a mid-lane champ.

Thanks to some zealous folk on Reddit, we have a preview of her abilities:
