The Battle of Baron Event Details

On Dec. 10, 2020, players will gather up for the biggest Baron Battle. By tuning in to the YouTube live broadcast, players will be facing against everyone’s most formidable void monster, The Baron Nashor.

Everyone who watches the stream can participate in the battle. The players can interact with Baron Nashor by typing numbers in the chat. Each number from 1 to 4 will have corresponding abilities that will allow you to attack Baron. The gigantic void monster will then respond dynamically to what you do. Of course, just like in Wild Rift, you can’t fight this monster alone. 

The voting system will determine what abilities will be used, so players will need to cooperate and decide how to fight Baron Nashor. Players who wish to participate in attacking Baron Nashor will ideally have to switch to Live Chat Mode instead of Top Chat Mode to see exactly how the votes are progressing.

Special Empowered Attacks

For the fight, certain abilities will be empowered to deal bonus damage. Players will have to synchronize their attacks and look for the right moment to execute the best abilities. The best way to defeat Baron is to band together and attack in harmony to deliver precise blows on the giant monster.
