Wild Rift patch 3.4b notes: Lillia release, Kayn buffs, Riven nerfs, more

Wild rift patch 3.4b

Wild Rift patch 3.4b is the last patch update for the year of 2022. These patch notes celebrate the release of the brand new Wild Rift champion: Lillia, alongside focus on bringing the typical meta balances for the game.

Though Wild Rift patch 3.4b is technically the last patch update for 2022, since many of the Riot employees are going on holiday, it’s still on the relatively smaller end of the spectrum of Wild Rift patch notes. But this is to be expected, since it’s a supplementary patch rather than a big numbered patch, like 3.4.

These changes should help stabilize the meta until the next big patch: Wild Rift patch 3.5.

What is changing in Wild Rift patch 3.4b?

Wild Rift Lillia releases

This new update marks the release of Wild Rift Lillia, set to debut on December 15 at 00:01 UTC. Therefore, at the time of this article’s writing, the champion has already released. For details on how to play her, check out our Wild Rift Lillia champion guide and build.

Kayn buffed again

Kayn has been surprisingly weak in the meta. His playstyle hasn’t really fit into the game quite so well, and since he’s a new champion, Riot is doing their best to make him playable. They buffed some of his damage numbers, but only time will tell if these changes were enough to make him viable.

There’s honestly the possibility that Wild Rift players just suck with him, and that they need to just get good.
