If you’re a new or veteran League of Legends player trying to learn a new champion, we have you covered. Today we introduce Evelynn, the Agony’s Embrace.

You’re minding your own business farming or trading in a lane during a game of League of Legends when all of a sudden, a shadow appears. At least that’s what you think you saw. A heart outlines on top of your head and the next thing you know you’ve got a death screen. If this sounds familiar it might only get worse.

The champion known for 100-0’ing you with just the flash of a heart is Evelynn, the Agony’s Embrace. If you like stealthily AP assassins, getting lots of kills and lurking around in shadows, you may want to look into becoming an Evelynn player.


Evelynn was a formless being before taking the form of a human woman. She looks like a demon and unleashes her true form onto her victims. She preys on those that display pain and suffering.

Passive – Demon Shade: Heals Evelynn when low on health and grants camouflage after reaching level 6 when out of combat. This is the key to her level 6 power spike. The sustain and stealth can be hard to deal with and make her very dangerous to sneak up on you and kill you or steal objectives out of nowhere.

Q – Hate Spike: Lashes out in a straight-line dealing damage to first enemy unit hit then Evelynn can shoot a line of spikes up to three times at nearby foes. This is the ability first maxed out. It is a good bit of burst damage, which she excels at.

W – Allure: Target is cursed, which causes the next spell, or attack after a delay to charm the target and reduce their magic resist. Always a good ability to use to start a combo to get off a bit of extra damage.

E – Whiplash: Deals damage and grants movement speed. Pretty straight forward ability that is used mostly for damage.

R – Last Caress: Evelynn goes untargetable then deal damage before going backward. There is a mark for this ability to execute. Use this ability in a team fight with grouped enemies for lots of damage, or as an emergency escape in a tight spot.
