LoL’s assassins get new tools to kill through new items in 2024 preseason

To deal a single, killing blow to an enemy is the quintessential assassin trait in League of Legends. Whether these champions are played in mid lane or jungle, their thirst for blood brings them all over the map—and some new items will make that hunt easier.

Riot Games has provided League players a deep look at what to expect from the 2024 preseason, which will begin testing on the game’s PBE server today, including some new additions to the assassin item lineup that may bring out even greater strengths for this class of champions. Yet as with the other classes of items, Riot is retiring a few in order to benefit the health of the game, this time saying goodbye to Duskblade of Draktharr and Prowler’s Claw.
