Champion Reworks

Playing Wild Rift, especially on mobile devices, has some limitations regarding the quality of its gameplay. In this patch, these champion reworks focus on how to make the gameplay of the following champions more consistent and enjoyable to play.


Her rework mainly focuses on her Q, which needs double-tapping to release quickly, and her Ultimate, which players accidentally cancel.
