Riot Games have posted a preview on Kha'Zix and Rengar’s skill in League of Legends: Wild Rift through their official social media handles. Both Kha'Zix and Rengar barely have any differences from their PC counterparts, so players who have played League of Legends PC will feel comfortable playing them in Wild Rift. The two new champions are expected to be released on May 6, 2021, along with a new event called Masters of the Hunt.
If you are curious about Kha'Zix and Rengar, the two new assassin champions coming to Wild Rift, here is a quick look at their abilities and how they are played in the game.
Kha'Zix Abilities in Wild Rift
Khazix is an assassin champion that evolves as the game progresses. Every evolution will grant him extra effects from each of his abilities, such as extra leaping capabilities, invisibility, and more.
Here is a quick look at his abilities and what effects they have after each evolution;
Passive: Unseen Threat
Kha’Zix gains enhanced basic attack and slows the target on his first strike. This skill refreshes immediately when completely hidden from enemies.
Tip: You can use this to check if enemies have wards around you as this skill will refresh if you are not in the enemies’ sight.
1st Skill: Taste Their Fear
Slash with his claws and deal physical damage. This damage is increased when hitting enemies who are isolated or are alone.
Evolution: Gain more casting range.
This skill makes Kha’Zix in 1v1 fights as you can deal absurd amounts of damage on isolated targets.
2nd Skill: Void Spike
Fire spikes in a cone shape that damages enemies and heals Kha’Zix.
Evolution: Spikes will slow enemies down.
Useful as your sustain skill in the jungle. The evolution will double its function as a way to chase down enemies.
3rd Skill: Leap
Leap to a target area and deal damage upon landing.
Evolution: Longer leap range and the skill refreshes in enemy champion takedowns.
Very useful in catching enemies off guard. And it resets whenever you kill an enemy.
Ultimate Skill: Void Assault
You gain one evolution point for every rank of this skill. When Kha’Zix activates this skill, he gains invisibility and bonus movement speed.
Evolution: Kha’Zix can recast his invisibility up to three times.
Very useful for ganks and team fights. You can easily get close to enemy core champions and execute them using this ultimate.
Rengar Abilities in Wild Rift
Rengar is also an assassin champion with slightly similar capabilities as Kha’Zix. He gains extra damage whenever he gets trophies from killing enemy champions. So you need to keep killing enemy champions to maintain the heroes dominance, or he would have a hard time.
Here is a quick look at his abilities and what effects they have when empowered;
Passive: Unseen Predator
Rengar can leap when inside a brush or is camouflaged. He also gains extra damage per unique champion takedowns.
Leaping multiple times will grant him Ferocity stacks. At max stats, his abilities will be empowered and gain bonus effects.
This is Rengar’s bread and butter. You need to maximize this skill by fighting near brushes or being camouflaged.
1st Skill: Savagery
Empowers his next attack and gain bonus attack speed.
Enhanced: Deal more damage, and attack speed bonus lasts longer.
Don’t hesitate to spam this skill as much as possible. It doesn’t require mana, so use it all the time.
2nd Skill: Battle Roar
Heal based on the damage received. If enemies are nearby, they take damage.
Enhanced: Giant extra movement speed and remove any crowd control effects.
Very useful against champions that have a lot of CC effects.
3rd Skill: Bola Strike
Damages enemies and slows them.
Enhanced: Deal even more damage and roots them in place.
If possible, root them near a brush and just continuously leap to them to maximize your damage.
Ultimate Skill: Thrill of the Hunt
Rengar gains bonus movement speed, camouflage and reveals the nearest enemy. His next attack will shred armor.
Similar to Kha’Zix, very useful for ganks and team fights. You can easily get close to enemy core champions and execute them. The armor shred will allow you to deal even more damage to them and potentially one-shot most marksmen.
Kha’Zix and Rengar are expected to arrive on May 6, 2021, along with a new themed event called Master of the Hunt where you stand a chance to unlock one of the two assassin champions for free.
