When is Wild Rift patch 3.4?

Wild Rift patch 3.4 is expected to go live on September 15, 2022. However much like other cycles for the game, players can expect mini-updates across the following weeks and months.

Yone in League of LegendsRiot Games
Yone releases on September 22

What’s changing in Wild Rift patch 3.4?

Yone, Gwen, Warwick, and Vex officially revealed

New champions help develop the meta, effectively adding more variables to the ever-growing roster. Of course, the new additions come directly from League PC. But for those unfamiliar with these champions, here’s a brief summary of their kits.

Yone is Yasuo’s brother, and thereby plays rather similar to him. His first ability is essentially the same as Yasuo’s, but on the third hit he flings himself forward — throwing out a tornado as well. Then his second ability grants a fat shield, bigger for the more enemies hit. This makes life steal essential on him.

Instead of launching to an airborne enemy for his ultimate though, Yone knocks up all enemies in an area, dealing massive damage.

Gwen is a solo lane champion, who utilizes her scissors to slash down the enemy. She deals AP damage, and creates an area of effect where she becomes essentially immune to outside the area of effect. This makes the champion an excellent dualist.

Wild Rift GwenRiot Games
Gwen debuts in the Wild Rift patch 3.4 cycle.

Warwick is a bruiser who loves to run into the enemy, especially low health targets. Walking towards weakened enemies increases his movement speed, allowing him to easily close the gap. He also has very mobile abilities alongside CC to help him get picks and sustain to survive skirmishes.

As for Vex, she’s a mid lane yordle who plays as a castor mage. Her biggest asset is easily her engage from her ultimate, where if she hits the area of effect skill shot, she can dash in and fear all nearby enemies.

According to Riot’s social media posts, they’ve set the release dates for every new champion to release in the patch. Gwen’s release date is on September 15, standing as the very first champion for the Wild Rift patch 3.4 cycle.

Then Yone releases on September 22, around a week after Gwen releases. Gwen releases on Wild Rift a solid month after on October 27, and Warwick on November 4.

Support item overhaul coming

Easily the biggest item update in Wild Rift Patch 3.4 is the addition of support items – which allow supports to gain extra gold through the laning phase. There’s one that allows executes minions, and shares gold and heals. The other deals extra damage to champions or structures, granting gold upon hit.

Essentially, they’re the same items taken from League PC. These new support items will help the role provide more direct impact on the game from early on.

Other item changes in this Wild Rift patch 3.4 notes include updates to some AP items, attempting to make mages feel more relevant in the meta.

New 1v1 ARAM game mode

The new Wild Rift game mode is a 1v1 ARAM, also known as “Duel Mode.” This is exactly as it sounds, where the game mode will allow players to 1v1 each other. But instead of picking their own champions and seeing who they’re against, they’ll be provided a random champion.

And since they cannot see their match up, it’ll definitely require some luck. Get ready for some intense fun!

To win the game mode, you must:

⦁ Kill enemy champion 2 times before the shrinking circle appears.⦁ Kill the enemy champion 1 time after the shrinking circle appears.⦁ Destroy the first enemy turret.

The game mode has all champions unlocked – thereby having little barriers of entry. Check out the official patch notes for more details.

Wild Rift Mastery System

To add onto the personalization options in Wild Rift, the developers are implementing an update to the Mastery system. This allows players to acquire mastery points for each role they play, rather than only the specific champions.

  • There are five different tiers (1 – 5).
  • Each tier will have a different color icon.
  • The score will be displayed on your profile page.
  • Hovering over it on your profile will also show your top three champions in that role.
    • For example if you hover over the Support role it will also show the three champions you have highest Mastery on in Support.
  • You’ll be able to share your role score to your teammates in your lobbies!

Ranked Season 7 will also start with a new skin reward: Glorious Crimson Draven.
