Riot Games are continuing their polish for the Legends of Runeterra Open Beta with the 0.8.3 update on February 3 that’ll bring new content and bug fixes to the game.
The League of Legends developers are priming their new card game for its official launch soon. This next patch is a smaller, more contained approach to fixes with a larger one coming in the next few weeks.
This time around, there’s going to be more Guardians for players to summon on the board, while initial install for the game is going to get a lot smaller for new players to get into the action quicker.
Along with many cards that come in LoR, probably one of the most adorable live elements of the game are in the form of the small Guardian avatars that stand near your health counter.
There are three new ones for players to pick up in the form of the Basilisk, Silverwing, and Gloomtooth.
While the Basilisk is an unchained demon-looking hound, Silverwing is a much more meme-y Guardian with their “Deal with it” shades. Gloomtooth is a ghostly image of an adorable shark that wins just above the board.
There are three new borders that will come along the three Guardians release, each complimenting their colors and themes.
The devs also took out the post-tutorial content from the initial download, reducing the size of the game’s file for players to get a more express avenue into LoR.
Players can still access the post-tutorial content, but it’ll “download as you play through tutorials” instead of requiring you to load them into your PC beforehand.
Notable bug fixes are also packaged in the 0.8.3 update like a fix to an issue that didn’t correctly distribute cards after being purchased with wildcards and the like.
They also teased there could by changes to the XP Systems in the upcoming patch, which will be considerably larger than this one.
Riot revealed that they plan to have two patches a month for their strategy card game for the time being, this one being small to ramp up to the next big patch.
