Introducing the Ice Dragon

We have seen Ocean, Cloud, Infernal, Mountain and the Elder Dragon, but have you ever heard of the Ice Dragon? For the first time ever, players are about to encounter the cold Ice Dragon inside the rift.

When killed, Ice Dragon provides ability haste to the team.

Also, just like with any other dragon, if it is the first dragon to be captured, Summoner Rift will take a new form. Ice will begin to accumulate and take over terrains. When champions pass through the ice, their movement speed will drastically increase.

Lastly, slaying the Ice Dragon will allow the new frozen fruit to be summoned. Attacking the fruit will launch an icy projectile that will put the target into a frozen state, quite similar to stasis. During the duration, champions who are under this effect will be untargetable and invulnerable.

New Items for Wild Rift Patch 4.2

This time around, marksmen are going to receive some love with the new ADC items. This allows ADC players to be given more option to dominate their lane with the new items.

Immortal Shieldbow

When you take damage that would reduce your health below a certain threshold, you’ll gain a shield to absorb some of the incoming damage.
