With the rework of Urgot, his new and improved abilities and visuals were what players were looking forward to the most, finally able to see the Dreadnought back on the Rift in full force. All of these features got quite a few teasers leading up to his re-release though, so while there was time to prepare yourselves for his terrifying new abilities, it seems that there are still parts of Urgot that we're learning about.
One of those parts is that Urgot's taunt will sometimes result in the champion finding a golden duckie tucked away in his mechanized body. We're not exactly sure where he's pulling that duck from, but he's definitely got some issues up in his mechanical regions
By using Urgot's Joke, set to Ctrl+1 by default, he'll pull out a range of objects from a crab to a duck to a Teemo mushroom, and one player even found a sparking, golden duck, an announcement that a Rioter who works on champion designs later retweeted saying that "someone finally found it."
Another League player replied to the tweet, saying that it gave a bump in XP and gold when you find it. We've pulled all kinds of objects from Urgots metal chassis but haven't found the golden duck yet, so we can't confirm the small bonus yet.
However, this rare Easter egg is far from the only one in League, and some of them even grant bonuses themselves. Some of the interactions are more obvious than others, and some have been removed, but here are a few of the best hidden passives and lesser-known surprises in League.
Lissandra's ARAM History Lesson
One of the lesser-known features in League was the monologue that players can hear from Lissandra if they sit in an ARAM game long enough after the Nexus has exploded. We say was, because with the way that the new honor system works now where it pushes players straight from the end of the game to the honoring screen, it seems that this option is inadvertently gone now since you can't wait around the Howling Abyss any longer.
For those that don't know about Lissandra's story, her, Sejuani, and Ashe are embroiled in a battle for the frozen lands of Freljord, a conflict that is discussed in her ARAM history lesson. It's actually longer than you'd think if you haven't hear it before, and you can hear the full speech above.prevnext
Nunu Drops Two Souls For Thresh
Thresh has a thing for collecting people's souls – just ask Lucian and his wife about that – and he's not about to be short-changed by Nunu and his yeti, Willump.
Whenever an enemy champion or the occasional minion dies near Thresh, per the passive on his Dark Passage ability, they'll drop a soul for Thresh to collect to give him a slight increase in armor and ability power as well as a damage increase to Flay's passive. When Nunu dies near him though, the jungler will drop a soul from Nunu and a soul from Willump.
This interaction isn't the same with other duo champs like Sejuani, a champ that'll only drop one soul despite being two separate beings.prevnext
Tahm Kench And His Many Bargains
The newer that champions are, the more likely it is that they'll have an extensive list of other champions that they can interact with. Whether it's because of bad blood, friendships, or other factors, many champs have special quotes for each other, and Tahm Kench has a ton of them.
Like a villain straight out a fairy tale, Tahm Kench will grant you what you desire in a hurry, but it'll come at a huge cost later on. Fittingly enough, plenty of the champions in League have their own reasons for fighting, and Tahm has many ways to help them achieve their goals.
As far as his taunts go, Tahm has special interactions with over 40 champions in the game, most of them having more than one depending on whether the other champ is on your team or not. Next time you're in a game as or with a Tahm, make sure you spam that taunt to help you catch up on some lore.prevnext
Anivia's Passive Changes Her Chat Name
Since Anivia is one of those champs that are not seen as much as more consistent mid laners like Orianna and Syndra, this interesting interaction may be one that goes unnoticed by those who don't play the frigid champ often. When Anivia goes into her passive egg form, any actions that might result in Anivia's name showing up in the chat will result in her being called "Eggnivia" instead.
If someone's playing as Anivia and get put into their Rebirth passive, it's unlikely that they'll be doing much typing to show off the special feature. You'll have a much better chance of seeing it in action by pinging an Anivia while she's in the egg, or if she's on your team, just wait for the rapid question mark and assist pings as she calls for help so she can survive the Rebirth.prevnext
Smaller Champions Eaten Up By Fizz
Fizz isn't exactly large enough to be feasting on enemy champions by himself, but with his Chum the Waters ultimate, he's more than capable of feeding tiny champs to the fishes.
If Chum the Waters finishes off an enemy champion that's pretty small, such as most of the Yordles and other pint-sized champs like Annie, Chompers will leave no model behind, consuming them entirely.
Not every smaller champion is affected by this interaction though. An enemy Fizz can be eaten the same way, but if you're thinking of plotting some delicious Teemo snacking, you'll be disappointed to learn that he's one of the non-consumable champs.prevnext
Sunglasses Counter Leona
One of the more well-known hidden passives in League, champions that are wearing sunglasses have a very slight advantage against Leona's sunlight-infused passive.0comments
When Leona's passive, Sunlight, applies its debuff to you, the next attack from one of Leona's allies will deal bonus magic damage. Fortunately, if you've got sunglasses on, you'll take one less point of damage from the passive.
Vayne is the only champion that wears sunglasses by default, but other skins also grant the same passive. Commando skins, some Vandal skins, and multiple others will all give you the passive bonus, so make sure you draft accordingly if you're up against a Leona.prev
