Riot Games have officially announced the arrival of Gwen in the League of Legends PBE. Fans will now only have to wait a week to get their hands on one of the much-awaited "Peppy Skirmisher."

According to the developers, Gwen is "tailor-made for top lane" and will function as a viable AP Bruiser in the game. Ryan "Reav3" Mireles, the lead producer of the League of Legends' championship team, once said while providing a sneak-peek of Gwen:

"We believe, snipping a bigger space out of our roster for AP fighters, will not only lead to more diversity in top lane but also more choices for other lanes as well."

This clearly hints at Gwen's multi-lane flexing possibilities, which will come out as being massively overpowered, according to fans.

According to Surrender@20, the "Hallowed Seamstress" has hit the PBE for testing.

Here are some of the known numbers featuring her stats and ability scaling in League of Legends.
