Get ready as Wild Rift’s elemental rift mode enters a new cycle

The League of Legends: Wild Rift elemental rift game mode has proven popular, but that doesn’t that there aren’t some changes for Riot to implement

Riot Games constantly adds new content to its mobile MOBA, and the amount of work going into the League of Legends: Wild Rift elemental rift feature is admirable, as the game mode has been around through several updates, boasting fresh ideas each time a new patch drops to bring you the best experience possible.

As part of the Wild Rift patch 3.2 update, the League of Legends: Wild Rift elemental rift game mode has some differences from the previous iterations. For example, it’s said that many of you feel that the terrain change on the second dragon’s death is too late, which is why Riot altered the match type to make the terrain change more frequently after you defeat the first dragon.

Secondly, the development team is still tweaking the dragon soul aspect of the game mode. You see, previously, the first team to slay three dragons could snag this powerful buff, but to try and make it obtainable in the mid-game, Riot chose to make it available for the first team to slay two dragons, yet this made the powerful buff show up too early. There’s still a balance to find here.

When it comes to the elder dragon, Riot is keen for it to remain a rare sight, but that doesn’t mean it’s not open to implementing changes should they be necessary – especially if your player feedback indicates an alteration is crucial.
