GAMEPLAY CHANGES

ITEMS

BLADE OF THE RUINED KING

Blade of the Ruined King has been a popular item choice since the beginning of Wild Rift, but over time it’s grown to be more common and more powerful as a first purchase for many fighters and marksmen. We’re slightly increasing its price so you’ll have to farm a couple extra minions if you want to snag this blade early on.

  • Total cost: 3100g → 3200g
  • Combine cost: 1000g → 1100g

MONSTERS

BARON NASHOR

Baron’s powerful Acid Shot has been terrorizing champions on the Rift for some time. To ease some of the frustration around this ability, we’re reworking its damage so it scales less with Baron’s Attack Damage and also reducing its damage to targets who get hit by subsequent shots. Since Baron is losing power overall, we’re giving it some more base health.

  • Base health: 10800 → 11800
  • Acid Shot damage: 20 + 120% Attack Damage → 120 + 25% Attack Damage
  • Acid Shot damage ratio to targets hit by subsequent shots: 70% → 50%

SYSTEMS

HOMEGUARD & MINIONS

Minions play a pretty big role in the later stages of the game, so we are making some adjustments to alleviate some of the pressure those late-game minion waves can cause. We’re increasing the bonus movespeed for Homeguard in the mid-to-late game to allow champions to get into more aggressive positions quicker while also reducing the move speed the minions gain.

Homeguard

  • Movement speed effect: After 12 mins, gain 30% movement speed for 4s → After 1 min, gain 40% movement speed until the game ends

Minion movement speed

  • Movement speed bonus at 12 minutes: 40 → 10
  • Maximum movement speed bonus: 120 → 100

RESPAWN TIMER

We’re making some adjustments to respawns and changing how much a champion can be penalized or favored on their death timers. If you have a lead and are ahead in your game, you’ll be penalized less, but if you find yourself behind in your games you’ll be favored less.

Base respawn timer

  • 9 mins – 11 mins: 32s → 33s
  • 11 mins – 13 mins: 38s → 40s
  • 13 mins – 15 mins: 45s → 47s

Respawn modifier

  • Maximum modifier: 25% → 15%

FREE-TO-PLAY CHAMPION ROTATION

Apr 7 – Apr 14: Diana, Draven, Fizz, Jarvan IV, Jhin, Karma, Kayle, Rakan, Rengar, Shen

Apr 14 – Apr 21: Akshan, Amumu, Janna, Miss Fortune, Rammus, Riven, Sett, Sona, Tristana, Yasuo
