Akshan is bringing his unique abilities to League of Legends as a new champion during the Sentinels of Light event.
Akshan is the new South Asian-inspired League of Legends champion, arriving in patch 11.15 as part of the Sentinel of Light event. This Rogue Sentinel has a similar story to Viego the Ruined King. They seek revenge for their loved ones, but Akshan's choices are focused on saving the world, not destroying it.
He has a unique ability never seen before in League of Legends, where he can revive his teammates. If enemy champions kill Akshan's teammates, the enemy will be marked as a Scoundrel. Defeating the Scoundrel gives him extra gold and resurrects fallen companions at the base.Read also

He is an assassin who demands caution. While cloaked, he can follow paths that lead to Scoundrels. He also gains speed and mana regeneration when approaching Scoundrels.
Akshan is a marksman with an action packed kit. Avengerang deals damage when it is cast at the target and when it bounces back. Also, by swinging with his grappling hook shot, he can fire bullets at the nearest enemy; this skill is called Heroic Swing.
Another skill is Comeuppance, where Akshan channels the power of the bullet into his weapon while attacking an enemy. He then releases all acquired bullets towards a target. Players can use this skill with Heroic Swing.
Additionally, Akshan has a passive burst of three hits of physical damage. If the target is a champion, Akshan gains a shield. He fires a second attack soon after, but canceling the second shot gives the player a burst of speed.
