Corrupted Leona in Legends of Runeterra 3.14.

Legends of Runeterra 3.14 patch notes are finally out in the open. Dropping mere days after the end of the Legends of Runeterra Star Guardian event line, the new Awakened chapter - the first of The Darkin Saga - is set to turn the bright memories of the last few weeks into distant, dark recollections. Here's what we know.

Introducing five new champions, a new card type, a bunch of new/revised keywords and vocabs, and the usual host of new skins and cosmetic flairs through a new event pass, there's a lot to see, and even more to look at ahead of the next patch as well.

For more Legends of Runeterra content, click that little blue link in the first paragraph. For previous patch notes (in case you've fallen behind) we have the LoR 3.12 patch notes and LoR 3.11 patch notes still up.

When is the LoR 3.14 release date?

Currently, the LoR 3.14 release date is set for August 31 at around 11am PT. This is an approximation on Riot's part and generally depends on how server maintenance goes on the day.

⦁ Portals exclude anything with a Play effect, including Daybreak, Nightfall, and Plunder. Solitary Monk has also been excluded for balance reasons"
⦁ Equipment cannot be silenced
⦁ Darkin Equipment can be played with spell mana like all Equipment, but the Darkin unit cannot be played using spell mana
