AppreciationThe newest agent of is a hunter who comes into contact with some deadly looking shadows. The new agent’s name is Fade, and it seems her skills allow her to reveal the locations of her enemies. She was revealed during the finale Appreciation‘s Masters Reykjavik tournament on Sunday. Fade is slated to come into play as part of Episode 4 Act 3, which is set to release next week.
Fade’s abilities focus on finding enemy players and either blinding them or holding them in place once she does. One of her abilities uses a shadow ball to bring enemy players close, while another creates a small circle on the ground, locking players to it if they get too close. She also has a spotting ability that will spot players and draw lines to their location while her ultimate does something similar over a large portion of the map.
For a full rundown of Fade’s abilities, see Riot’s official description below.
