Zeri LoL Champion: Release Date, Abilities, Best Build And Everything You Need To Know

Who's the new champ?

League of Legends is always evolving over the years, and this is why the MOBA developed by Riot Games has maintained its sucess over the years.

With constant updates adding new legends and so on, theres been a new one announced that will be the first one released in 2022.

Here's all we know about Zeri in League of Legends!

Zeri Release Date

Zeri should be releasing after the 12.2 Patch and arrive in League of Legends on the 20th January 2022.

Zeri Abilties

Passive: Living Battery

Zeri gains Move Speed whenever she receives a shield. When she damages an enemy shield, she absords its energy, shielding herself.

Q: Burst Fire

Passive: Zeri's basic attack deals magic damage, scales with AP, and is treated as an ability. Moving and casting Burst Fire stores up energy in Zeri's Sparkpack. When fully charged, her next basic attack will slow and deal bonus damage.

Active: Burst fire shoots a burst of 7 rounds that deal physical damage to the first enemy hit. Burst Fire scales with AD and is treated like an attack, with the first round applying on-hit effects. Its cooldown matches Zeri's basic attack timer.

W: Ultrashock lasterFire

Zeri fires an electric pulse that slows and damages the first enemy hit. If the pulse hits a wall it fires a long range laser from the point of impact.

E: Spark Surge

Zeri dashes a short distance and energizes her next 3 casts of Burst Fire causing them to pierce through enemies. She will vault over or grind along any terrain she dashes into depending on the angle. Hitting a champion with an attack or ability reduces Spark Surge's Cooldown.

R: Lightning Crash

Zeri discharges a nova of electricity damaging nearby enemies and overcharges herself for a moderate duration. While overcharged, Zeri gains increased damage, Attack Speed and Move Speed. Attacking enemy champions refreshes the overcharge duration and adds another stack of Move Speed. While Overcharged, Burst Fire's damage concentrates into a faster triple shot that chains lightning between enemies.

Zeri Tips and Tricks

Zeri has a wide array of abilites and we're going to run over some basic tips and tricks for you to master her!

  • Zeri's Auto Attack Isn't Really An Auto Attack
    • Don't spam her Auto Attack whenever you get enough charge to use it. Instead, opt for her Burst Fire as often as possible in fights, saving her Auto Attack to finish off enemies once she's fully charged up.
  • Use Ultrashock Through Walls For A Bigger Effect
    • Ultrashock can be a great way to disrupt the enemy team while they are trying to defeat Baron or a dragon. Before your team jumps in, fire off an Ultrashock through the backside of the pit. If you have your ultimate ready.
  • Snowball Early With Ultrashock
    • Ultrashock can also be a great way to snowball in the early game from bot lane. After some skirmishing, your opponent will most likely retreat towards their tower. If you have gotten them low enough, make your way into the bot river and line up a shot through the wall.
  • Use Zeri's Speed To Your Advantage
    • In a teamfight situation, you'll quickly build up extra movement speed with her passive. Utilize that to jump into fights, charge up with Burst Fire, fire off a fully charged Auto Attack, and dash out with Spark Surge.
  • You're Weakest At The Beginning Of Fights
    • Zeri's passive builds up her shield and speed as a fight progresses. While this makes her great for extended team fights, this also makes her extremely vulnerable when they first break out. Leave the heavy hitting to your teammates until you can build up her passive.

Withered Rose Zeri


Riot has posted some information surrounding the background of Zeri, and this can be viewed either here or down below.

"From birth, Zeri had a unique relationship with electricity. Each giggle caught a spark—each cry, a shock. Magic wasn’t rare in Zaun, but Zeri’s electric charm was. It charged with her emotions, sometimes grounded, sometimes building to fierce and fiery. By her teenage years, her neighbors knew she was more likely the cause of power outages than a broken circuit. Life in Zaun was beautiful chaos, her grandma would say, and Zeri embodied that all too well."
