Riot Games has already shown League of Legends players what the new champion Samira can do, but one of her most impressive abilities didn’t make it into the breakdown of her moves. Her taunt allows her to not only do damage to an enemy but also allows her to actually give one gold to the other player as well. Riot Games developers who worked on Samira confirmed this is how Samira’s taunt will work and even showed off what the animation looks like when it’s used.
Riot Reav3 first discussed the champion’s taunt in a post on Reddit where players were discussing the new champion’s abilities. The Lead Champion Designer said Samira roots herself when taunting and flicks a coin at an enemy that deals one damage.
“One thing that’s unique to Samira but not shown here is here taunt,” Riot Reav3 said. “Her taunt is actually a skill shot that cost one gold to use. She roots herself and flicks a coin that does 1 damage to anything it hits. It also counts as a unique source of damage for her style passive.”
