New Events and Gamemodes for Wild Rift Patch 5.1

Wild Rift Patch 5.1 has revealed that the Black mists of the shadow isles will come to the summoner’s rift. This shadowy fog will engulf the map, through the lanes and jungle camps, to both bases of each side. However, it is not just the ambiance because items will be categorized as Radiant and Shadow, having different effects on each one. That’s not all, as there is also a new wave-defense game mode that features pre-ruination Kalista.

Radiant and Shadow Items

Items in Wild Rift Patch 5.1 will introduce Radiant and Shadow items. Radiant items will focus on protection and utility, perfect for support or tank champions. On the other hand, Shadow items introduce a high-risk, high-reward system, such as the Infinity Edge. Additionally, both item categories will affect all game modes in Wild Rift, so keep that in mind.

Final Stand, the New Gamemode in Wild Rift Patch 5.1

This Wild Rift Patch re-enacts pre-ruination of Kalista’s infamous battles, in wave-defense gameplay. Commander Kalista will embark on a mission where she has to face and survive endless waves of enemies, just like she did before the ruination.

Champion Reworks for Wild Rift Patch 5.1

The latest Wild Rift Patch has revealed a handful of champion reworks that aim to adjust them to fit the current meta. Miss Fortune, Riven, Jax, and Master Yi are the ones receiving them, so keep an eye on these champs if you want to use or encounter them in your upcoming games.

Miss Fortune

She will be getting a new passive in this Wild Rift Patch. This passive will help by making it easier to double-tap enemies. It will now pose stacks on her targets while she’s dealing damage to them. Additionally, this passive will deal bonus damage with her abilities and basic attacks as it stacks up.

Playing Riven pushes players into high-risk, high-reward scenarios, where they’ve got to be mechanically good to succeed in the baron lane. As a result, they’ve extended Riven’s ultimate upon killing an enemy in this Wild Rift Patch, to make every elimination worth it.

Another champion that receives a buff on their ultimate is Jax. His ultimate will now deal area of effect (AoE) damage at the cast. Additionally, Jax will gain armor and magic resistance based on the number of enemies hit, making him even more lethal.

Master Yi

This Wild Rift Patch has brought changes to Master Yi as well. Players can now combine Yi’s second ability, Meditate with attacks. This change enables Master Yi to do a normal attack, meditate, and normal attack again with such great speed.

New Gameplay Changes for Wild Rift Patch 5.1

This Wild Rift Patch introduces a new gameplay change, where players can now summon an ally on the magic circle located in the alcove called the Ixtal Mosstomper. This ally will help players in all of their endeavors, such as clearing minion waves. This new friend is also perfect for pushing turrets, as they deal extra damage to them.
