Wild Rift patch 3.1b brings some welcome changes

The League of Legends: Wild Rift patch 3.1b update is here, and it introduces some gameplay changes, including adjustments to numerous champions

Wild Rift patch 3.1b dragon and marauder skin

One of the best things about League of Legends: Wild Rift are the frequent updates, with the latest being Wild Rift patch 3.1b, which, like any other update, introduces some key changes to items, champions, and gameplay. Of course, for those of you that like to make a fashion statement on the battlefield, the new skins and accessories are a must-own – assuming they’re for your favourite characters.

So, what can you look forward to in League of Legends: Wild Rift patch 3.1b? For starters, the elemental rift game mode makes its triumphant return as a limited match type. The reason for this is that elemental rift isn’t fully released yet, and won’t be for some time, which is why the team behind LoL: Wild Rift is keen for you to try different versions of it.

For example, the Wild Rift patch 3.1b variant differs from the previous one in that when the first dragon is slain, the environment changes. Furthermore, whichever team terminates two dragons gets one of the powerful souls. These changes should spice things up a bit, and give you the chance to create some unique opportunities for yourselves.

As for the skins and accessories you can get your hands on, this patch introduces Marauder Brand, Marauder Graves, captain of the fluft icons, and the ‘why? What’d you say?’ emote. Each of these items releases at different times throughout the patch.

However, the thing that likely interests you the most, as with any Wild Rift patch, is what the champion changes are. Well, this time around, Riot has made adjustments to League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Blitzcrank, League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Darius, League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Jhin, League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Lucian, and League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Master Yi. Other champions to receive some changes include Olaf, Rakan, Sett, Yuumi Fiora, and Kai’sa.
