Information about the upcoming champion, Hwei, codenamed “Ink Mage,” has surfaced in the gaming community, and fans are eagerly awaiting his release in 2023.
3 champions, Milio: The Gentle Flame, Naafiri: The Hound of a Hundred Bites, and the most recent addition, Briar: The Restrained Hunger, have already been introduced during this year. Hwei, the final champion slated for release before Season 13 concludes, is generating substantial buzz among League of Legends players.
Hailing from the enchanting realm of Ionia, Hwei is characterized as an artist with a unique ability to bring his paintings to life. Much like Naafiri, he is expected to be a midlane champion. It’s an intriguing development in the League of Legends world, as this marks the second mid laner in 2023.

Riot Games has been rather tight-lipped about Hwei’s abilities and background, keeping fans guessing about what this artistic champion will bring to the game. However, fans and leakers have started to uncover some intriguing tidbits regarding his lore and visual design.
According to a well-known leaker Big Bad Bear, Hwei may have some sort of connection to the Primordial Demons, much like Nilah and Ashlesh, the Demon of Joy.
This connection hints at a potentially dark and mysterious aspect to his character, which has left fans speculating about the nature of his powers and motivations. Additionally, there’s a suggestion that Hwei is on a quest to find his artistic muse or source of inspiration, and one of the Primordial demons could play a crucial role in this quest.
Leaked artwork, commissioned by Big Bad Bear, provides a glimpse into Hwei’s appearance. The images depict him as a youthful figure, bearing a giant paintbrush as his weapon of choice. His green hair further adds to the mystique of his character, and it’s clear that Riot has invested a lot of thought into creating a visually striking champion.
As for the release date, Big Bad Bear has suggested that Hwei’s arrival is imminent, possibly within the next month. This has led fans to anticipate his debut on the PBE servers, with Patch 13.24 or thereabouts earmarked as a potential release window.
