Fourteen more League of Legends champions are now available in the free rotation thanks to the newly-released list that gives players more than a few competitive options to test out.

A new year means that returning League players likely have some RP burning holes in their digital wallets, but if you’re just now getting into League, this rotation is an excellent place to start. Once you get past the list of champions curated for new players, these 14 choices will let you experiment with champions across each role to help you find one that fits your style.

Meta aside, the rotation that’s found below includes quite a few champions that are consistently popular picks thanks to their usefulness and playstyle. Lulu, Jhin, and Ahri are just a few, but powerful picks like Twitch also find their way into the rotation. Of course, there are a few that players might be content to try instead of purchasing – looking at you, Aatrox.

Below are all of the free champions that you’ll now notice in your rotation for a short time, so try them out while you still can if you’re hoping to scope out some future IP or RP expenses.
