Renekton, the Butcher of the Sands is a terrifying Ascended warrior from the scorched deserts of Shurima. He was entombed beneath the sands where he lost his sanity.

New Events

Nemesis Duel

After the Nemesis Duel between Rengar and Kha’Zix was highlighted in the previous patch update, Nasus and Renekton are set to be the second set of Nemesis Duel Champions of Wild Rift. It will only trigger if certain conditions are met. As a reminder, the conditions are:

  • Both champs are at or above Level 13.
  • Neither champ has dealt or taken champion damage within 5 seconds.
  • Both champs are alive.
  • Both champs are at least 16 units apart.

Even if all the above conditions are met, it isn’t mandated that Nemesis Duel will happen for certain. If it does happen, the game will announce so that everyone gets to know. A champion wins the in-game event only when the enemy champion dies within 3 seconds of taking damage from the winning champion. Nasus and Renekton’s Nemesis Duel will be known as Bad Blood.

Fizz was facing challenges in the early game, especially from scaling mages. Therefore, a mana regen boost has been rolled out for him.

Base Stats

  • Mana: 435 → 480
  • Movement Speed: 325 → 330

Lux

Lux was way too strong as support, therefore a nerf is being released to address her shield strength.

The mechanics of passive gold earned by players will be changed as players are completing the build too soon which makes the importance of split pushing negligible. Therefore, the Gold earned in the mid and late game will be reduced.
