Priscilla, the Spider Queen

An unreleased champion that was left in development stage, her art assets remained in the game files.

Abilities

It used to be rumored Priscilla had been reworked into Nidalee Nidalee (she shared names with the Bestial Huntress at the time coupled with Nidalee Nidalee's abilities applying poison and Prowl.png Prowl granting her stealth during production) but Steven 'Coronach' DeRose debunked it all on 22-May-2010. [2]

Later rumors were that Priscilla had been reworked into Urgot Urgot based on both sharing a spider-like lower body as well as the Headsman's Pride Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge applying an armor-reducing poison.

With Dominion's launch in September 2011 came the item Priscilla&#039;s Blessing item.png Priscilla's Blessing (but was removed shortly after) which might have been referencing her since it increased point capture rate (and spiders use their webs to capture their meals)

Priscilla's release (as Elise Elise) was cemented with a poll petitioning Tom 'Zileas' Cadwell himself to let her reach completion- [3]

Shadow Isles

Swear your allegiance to the Shadow Isles, summoners! Shrouded in mist and shadows, this mysterious land promises death for those brazen or unfortunate enough to make their way to its shores. Most who journey here never return, but a few are embraced by this strange place and seize unimaginable power. Among these terrifying forces is Elise Elise, the Spider Queen.

Elise, the Spider Queen Revealed

By NeeksNaman [5]

This patch, we'll welcome a champion with a lot of history into the League of Legends lineup: Elise, the Spider Queen. Originally Priscilla 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 Elise 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 Jayce Jayce, whose kit emphasizes flowing smoothly between Transform- Mercury Cannon.png ranged and Transform- Mercury Hammer.png melee skillsets, or Nidalee Nidalee, who uses her Aspect of the Cougar.png cougar mobility to split push and create distance for her Javelin Toss.png long ranged attacks, Elise's two ability sets separate definitively into mage and assassin roles.

In her Elise 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.png Neurotoxin which deals damage based on the opponent's current health. While in this form, she also generates a Spider Queen.png spiderling each time she casts a spell. Upon Spider Form.png transformation into a spider, she summons these Spider Queen.png 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.png 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.png spiderlings become active to help rapidly damage an opponent. Using Rappel.png 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.png spiderlings. Boosting her minions' Attack Speed with Skittering Frenzy.png Skittering Frenzy can quickly burst down a surrounded enemy, leaving them vulnerable to execution with Venomous Bite.png 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.

Inside Design: Weaving the Spider Queen's Web

By ByronicHero [6]

Elise Elise, the Spider Queen, is poised and ready to unleash her horrific powers on the Fields of Justice. We spoke to some of the Rioters involved in bringing Elise to life and asked them about the challenges of arachnophobia, visual design, sound design, and what's so damn cool about transforming into a monstrous, man-eating spider. Here's the inside scoop on Elise from the developers behind this dangerous new champion.

Elise's Theme
EliseShadowIsles LoginTheme
"The Shadow Isles – They say they don't exist. Mythical islands haunted by ghosts and specters. Tales to frighten children. But I know better. I have been there. When I first set foot there I immediately knew something was wrong with that place. My skin crawled and in the pit of my stomach I felt a terrible revulsion. Life didn't belong there. But I also knew... somehow, deep inside I knew, that the islands welcomed me. They wanted me."

"As I wandered deeper I saw death all around me. Ghostly trees, grass and flowers engulfed me in their horrifying radiance. It was so quiet and so beautiful. I passed my hand through a spectral leaf fluttering in the wind; but there was no wind. That was when I understood that death was another world and I was at its door."

"Then I heard the song; Vilemaw the spider's song. My companion cried out in terror and fell to his knees. I embraced him. I told him he had nothing to fear. He was going to a better place. I will take them all to a better place." - Elise Elise
