Wild Rift 3.3b Patch Notes

New Champions

Samira, the Desert Rose

Samira stares death in the eye with unyielding confidence, seeking thrill wherever she goes. After her Shuriman home was destroyed as a child, Samira found her true calling in Noxus, where she built a reputation as a stylish daredevil taking on dangerous missions of the highest caliber. Wielding black-powder pistols and a custom-engineered blade, Samira thrives in life-or-death circumstances, eliminating any who stand in her way with flash and flair.

Sion the Undead Juggernaut

Abrutal warlord from a bygone era, Sion was revered in Noxus for choking the life out of a Demacian king with his bare hands—but, denied the peace of death, he was resurrected to serve his empire once more. His indiscriminate slaughter claims all who stand in his way, regardless of allegiance, proving he has retained little of his former humanity. With crude armor bolted onto his rotten flesh, Sion continues to charge into battle with reckless abandon, struggling to remember his true self between the swings of his mighty axe.

  • Both Samira and Sion will release on August 26, 2022.

To start, there are some interesting buffs to Varus and Blitzcrank among other champions. Kassadin was the most recently added champion, and is already getting some nerfs.

On top of this we're getting some new skins, including the PsyOps line, Dragontamer Tristana, and others. These patches will go live on August 26, 2022.

New Champions

  • Kassadin, the Void Walker
  • Samira, the Desert Rose
  • Sion, the Undead Juggernaut

Kassadin and Sion are definitely older champions that are great additions to the game. Samira on the other hand is a newer champion that hasn't seen a ton of love on the main game, but it's good to see her getting her time to shine in the rift.

Item and Shop Changes

Next up we have a change to the shop and a new Enchantments. With this update, you'll be able to active item swap in shop, so you can swap to a different active ability without selling your boots. This costs a bit of gold and puts your active on a cooldown. Here is one of the new enchantments coming in 3.3.

  • Repulsor Enchantment: Use Repulsor Enchant to knock back enemies in a small area around you.

This new enchant is great for marksman who get ganked in the mid to late game to help you escape or turn the fight.

Rift Changes and Ranked

There's quite a few changes coming to Rift and Ranked this patch. First off, a major change is coming to the Rift in the form of Elemental Rift. This will be the default map going forward for Summoners' Rift. Taking cues from the main game, the new map will have the Infernal, Ocean and Mountain drakes. This will also come with the terrain changes to the map when one of these is slain.

There's also a huge update coming to Ranked in Season 6. Riot will be introducing a mode called Legendary Ranked. Here's the details about this new mode.

  • Legendary Ranked is a Solo only, point based queue.
  • Players must reach Diamond or above to unlock this mode.
  • There are six rank tiers in this mode.
  • Legend Tier ranks update in real time.
  • This mode will not launch immediately at the start of the season to ensure that there's a large enough pool of players to have a healthy matchmaking experience.
  • The queues are only available during ceratin hours of the day to get players into games more consistently.
  • Reaching Legendary Rank will unlock exclusive rewards.

Events, Wild Pass and Skins

A new WIld Pass will be launching with this patch for the new season. This pass is pretty much the same as the Wild Passes we've had before. The Rank 50 skin that you'll get is Stargazer Karma.

There's also a new event coming, focused around Star Guardians. There's an event pass for this, and some of the rewards that you can get from this pass are Redeemed Xayah and Rakan Star Guardian skins.

In addition to those three skins, there's a ton of new ones being added, so here's a list of those.
