The first new champion to join the League of Legends ranks in 2013 is Thresh, the Chain Warden, Riot Games has announced.

Thresh is a supportive champion with exceptional crowd control abilities, and in the right hands can become a very valuable asset to have around. The ability to lock a single target down until their demise or disrupt an entire team are both within this champion's skillset.

Dark Passage is one of this support champion's signature moves. He will throw his lantern out to a location on the battlefield and if a teammate clicks on the lantern, Thresh will pull them directly to him, furthermore, all allies in the range of the lantern will gain a shield.
