A new item for LoL tanks to help you fight splitpushers. What is its ability?

Players get to know a completely new item that reduces damage from the selected champion.

Update 11.13 is going to mess a lot with the current League of Legends meta. The creators announced a lot of changes related to mobility and showed the LoL community two new items(LoL patch 11.13 – Who gets nerfs and who gets buffs? Riot’s plans can shake the meta quite a bit).

One of them is the item, which is great for 1 vs 1 duels, and its statistics indicate that it will be built by tanks.

What is the description of the item in question?

Below you can find a description and statistics for the item Anathema’s Chains.

  • Cost: 2500
  • Recipe: [Kindlegem + Giant’s Belt + 800g]
  • 650 HP
  • 20 Ability Haste

Active Ability – Vow: Choose a nemesis to build a stack of Vendetta for 60 seconds (90 seconds cooldown).

Vendetta: Take up to 30% reduced damage from your nemesis (1% for each Vendetta stack).

Vengeance: At maximum stacks, your nemesis has 20% reduced Tenacity when he is near you.

Even when you are dead, the active ability can be used and have a global range. Stacks reset when a new target is selected. You cannot use the ability until 15 seconds after exiting combat with another hero.

Players commenting on the item feel that the ability should have some restriction regarding how many enemies are nearby, as they think it is good enough that it can be built by multiple support tanks that simply target the opposing ADC.

At the moment, it is not known whether the creators will decide to make such a move, but it is worth noting that these are only testing phases and everything may still change.
