Priscilla portrait

Elise (originally Nidalee, and then Priscilla) was first in development back in 2009, but did not make it through the development phase. For years to come, her artwork and spell icons would remain in the game files.

While her original name was later used by NidaleeSquare another champion, it was confirmed by Coronach that there was no other relation. [3] It has been speculated that Priscilla's silhouette may have inspired UrgotSquare Urgot's original design.

Priscilla's Blessing item Priscilla's Blessing, an item released with the launch of Dominion in September 2011, was named in homage to the Spider Queen, although the item was removed shortly after.

There was a poll on the League of Legends forums petitioning for Riot to bring the Spider Queen into the game, which received over 24.000 votes. The forum can be seen here.


Elise, the Spider Queen Revealed

By NeeksNaman [4]

This patch, we'll welcome a champion with a lot of history into the League of Legends lineup: Elise, the Spider Queen. Originally PriscillaSquare concepted over three years ago, Elise proved to be a challenging champion to fully realize. Finally coming together as a transform champion, Elise has the ability to assume the form of either a regal mage or a deadly spider assassin.

Like all transform champions, successfully playing EliseSquare Elise involves balancing two distinct kits. More than any of her counterparts, however, the Spider Queen's two forms embody distinct, but complimentary roles. Unlike JayceSquare Jayce, whose kit emphasizes flowing smoothly between Transform Mercury Cannon ranged and Transform Mercury Hammer melee skillsets, or NidaleeSquare Nidalee, who uses her Aspect of the Cougar cougar Prowl mobility to split push and create distance for her Javelin Toss long ranged attacks, Elise's two ability sets separate definitively into mage and assassin roles.

In her Human Form human mage form, Elise specializes in keeping her distance using low-cooldown nukes and crowd control abilities. Her spells emphasize wearing down high-health targets in preparation for a brutal finish in spider form. At the heart of this gameplay is Neurotoxin Neurotoxin which deals damage based on the opponent's current health. While in this form, she also generates a Spider Queen spiderling each time she casts a spell. Upon transformation into a Spider Form spider, she summons these Spider Queen spiderlings to fight alongside her. Investing the time to build up your minion count is essential to performing a perfect assassination.

Once she's switched to her Spider Form spider assassin form, Elise's kit takes on an entirely different theme. She gains a number of bonuses to her melee capabilities, and her Spider Queen spiderlings become active to help rapidly damage an opponent. Using Rappel Rappel, she can ascend above the battlefield, vanishing from sight and becoming untargetable for a short duration. Once she's suspended, she can lower herself upon a nearby target, surrounding them with Spider Queen spiderlings. Boosting her minions' Attack Speed with Skittering Frenzy Skittering Frenzy can quickly burst down a surrounded enemy, leaving them vulnerable to execution with Venomous Bite Venomous Bite.

Using both spider and human form effectively is the key to making the most out of the Spider Queen. Having the good judgment to stay safe in your mage form while you fight to create the opportunity for a clean spider kill will make or break your success on the Fields of Justice.
