A new champion with a love of snakes is joining the ranks of Paladins. Mal'Damba is a champion with a bit of a witch doctor feel, using snakes as his weapons and poisoning the enemy every chance he gets. He's not all bad though as his secondary fire, "Mending Spirits," can heal an enemy for 280 Health every second for 5 seconds.

Mal'Damba's Spitting Cobra -- his main weapon -- fires venom every .55s and deals 450 damage. As a bonus, reloading actually throws the cobra at the enemy dealing up to 550 damage. One of his abilities, "Gourd," heals allies while damaging enemies. His ultimate, titled "Dread Serpent," fears all enemy champions for 2 seconds causing them to take more damage.

As always, the new champion isn't the only thing happening with patch 35. There are also a variety of changes, additions, and more -- all of which can be found in the patch notes.

Most of the characters are fresh ideas, but Androxious is a complete carbon copy.

Game gets boring. Need to pay to be in competitive games, you need to train 12 chars to lvl 4 (have to buy the chars) How it has such good ratings is funny

Worst FPS community. Seriously, you cna play 10 hours a day and have nothing but 0/4 losses because the players have no idea how to play. Worst game ever.
