Wild Rift: Patch 3.3B Brings Samira, Sion, Nerfs Kassadin

Wild Rift brings two new champions to the rift, Samira, a marksman, and Sion, a fighter. The newest patch notes also sees the nerf of champions with high win rate in competitive tournaments.

Two new champions are heading to the Rift this coming Patch 3.3B!

Samira, The Desert Rose

She is a daredevil who takes the most dangerous missions with ease. She’s a gun-slinging, sword-swinging marksman. She can be both a ranged and melee champion depending on how she is played. Samira will be released on August 26, 8:00 AM.

Sion, The Undead Juggernaut

Sion charges into battle with no remorse. A brutal warlord from way back, Sion was resurrected to serve the Noxus empire but retained a little to none of his humanity. Sion will be released on August 26, 8:00 AM.

Wild Rift Nerfs Overpowered Champions in the Competitive Scene

Kassadin, Lucian, and Shyvana were staple picks in the esports scene lately. These 3 champions have a high win rate because they have hard damage, mobility, and can easily control teamfights. Wild Rift also nerfed Yuumi who can provide great sustain to any champion and Kha’zix who can easily rip apart any champion anywhere on the map and get away with it.

Here are the complete list of changes for the new patch from League of Legends: Wild Rift Website!
