Everything we know about hazards in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story

As mentioned before, these hazards are environmental debuffs that have various negative effects on your party in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. Not only that, avoiding them can be slightly tricky as well.

How do you know when you've strayed into a hazardous area? If there's a hazard in the area you're currently travelling in, there will be an outline around your character.

If, however, an enemy attacks during this time, the hazard will be placed on the initiative bar which is located at the bottom of your screen.

When the hazard is on your initiative bar, you will have to avoid it. The only way to do it is by lane switching.

Champions in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story come with lane abilities as well. And these abilities come into play during lane switching.

There are three lanes to choose from, the Power Lane, the Balanced Lane and the Speed Lane. You can choose either of the three depending upon the position of your champion.

However, you also need to take into account what kind of hazard you're facing. For example, choosing a balanced lane or a speed lane to avoid a poison gas hazard makes sense, but choosing a power lane will force you to take damage.
