In a recent data mine, a player discovered evidence of Wild Rift Taliyah potential release. The specific datamine showed data for Yuumi and Aatrox, with Ornn on the picture and Taliyah as the profile picture. Seeing as how they’re all relatively mechanically simple champions, their additions to Wild Rift stands as a very real possibility. With January typically marking huge changes for Riot Games’ products, such a release is not unprecedented. In fact, Riot’s stream on Friday will almost surely confirm these champions. Though difficult to predict accuracy, expect confirmation on at least one of the four champions.

New leaked champions which might be making their way into #WildRift in the next few months:-
– Kindred (Pretty sure it was leaked before alongside Taliyah) (?)
Alongside, Infernal Rift

The new possible champion, Taliyah the Stoneweaver, utilizes terrain to function. Running alongside walls grants her movement speed. To synergize with this, Taliyah creates a massive wall with her ultimate. In Wild Rift’s smaller map, the addition of Taliyah could spell trouble for side lanes. Her roaming potential is not to be taken lightly, especially with her ultimate. Think back to the broken Aurelion Sol days, where the pick dominated roams. Taliyah can very realistically become similar in that regard.
In addition, the pick excels at dealing burst damage. Scaling strongly with AP, the champion sees play in both the mid lane and the jungle. Considering the climate of Wild Rift’s meta, Taliyah likely will see play in both in the mobile port as well. After all, fast roams and strong damage are very characteristic of junglers in the current state of the game. Though Taliyah’s viability depends heavily on stats upon release, her playstyle as a whole will likely exploit the smaller map allowing for game breaking roams.
The release of these champions, including Wild Rift Taliyah, is very probable, but not guaranteed. Therefore, take the information provided here with a grain of salt. Nothing has been officially revealed, and the content provided was discovered by dataminers. This correlates to strong evidence of the releases, but until the Riot Game stream on Friday of this week, nothing is guaranteed. Wild Rift Taliyah alongside the rest of the teased champions would definitely be great additions to Wild Rift, evolving the state of the game forward.
