Recently, Riot Games has announced new content in Wild Rift in the 2022 Season with many appearances that are worth waiting for.
New Heroes: Sett, Yuumi, Karma, Shen
In the 3.0 update, players will be greeted with a lot of new champions of which Sett is the first name. With his damage-and-resistance champion, Sett will launch alternate punches like heaven on Baron Road, and hitting a few hits will be no small feat for this champion. Opening the fight with the “take the enemy against the enemy” style toss and throws, players will have the opportunity to stretch their muscles with Sett at the end of January.
Right after Sett, the mischievous magic cat Yuumi will be the next general to dock at Wild Rift. Yuumi is a mischievous support champion who loves to help his teammates. She latches onto allies and becomes untargetable, granting them stats, healing, shield, and movement speed. This cat is not as gentle as it seems, Yuumi can attack enemies to create a shield and use the Book of Spells to tie their feet, helping allies to deliver the perfect finishing blow. Yuumi will be playing Wild Rift next month with the Yuumi Adventure event.
Last year, Riot planned to release about 2 champions per month, but now there are … 29.5 champions (if the Mundo image update is included). In 2022, Riot will reduce the frequency of new champions a bit, but there are still many interesting things and the next duo – Karma and Shen will appear in update 3.1.
New series of costumes and events
In 2022, Riot promises to change the way it collaborates with PC League of Legends on events and common themes. Riot wants to make sure the combination of the two is truly meaningful, as each side brings its own unique character. Specifically, Wild Rift will still collaborate with PC League of Legends in the future, but in 2022, each side can launch different content in the joint event.
Besides, Riot also wants to launch more Wild Rift events this year and shorten the time between events. The next big event will be to celebrate the Lunar New Year, which has a lot of items in store, including Firework skins for Teemo, Diana, Xin Zhao, Sett and Tristana, all of which will also be available on PC LoL.
Elemental Map and Dragon Soul
Wild Rift currently has 4 elemental dragons for players to destroy: Earth Dragon, Wind Dragon, Water Dragon and Fire Dragon. However, in the near future, with the Elemental Map, if your team kills the first 3 dragons, they will receive a great advantage as the Dragon’s Soul in that match. Besides, each match will have a dominant element and radically change the map. Each Elemental Map affects teamfights, vision, and target control, so the path to victory will vary from game to game.
Fire Dragon will destroy walls and burn grass, Earth Dragon will create new terrains in the forest, Water Dragon will cause bushes and healing fruit to grow, Wind Dragon turns paths into wind tunnels to increase movement speed your. Regarding plans for the Elder Dragon, Riot is still working on how to bring this monster to Wild Rift, and will have more information in the next few months.
