Rengar, The Pridestalker
This assassin champion is a Vastayan Trophy Hunter who lives for the thrill of hunting strong and dangerous prey. He can leap through bushes and gains additional abilities with each trophy he collects. Rengar will be released on May 6, 2021.
Kha’Zix, The Voidreaver
This void creature’s primary goal is to continue his evolution and be devouring everything in its way. Kha’Zix evolves after certain levels, allowing him to empower his abilities and gain new ways to hunt his prey. Rengar will be released on May 6, 2021.
Wild Rift will release the God-King skin line for Garen and Darius along with other skins;
The two natural-born hunters Rengar and Kha’Zix will fight to claim the title of Apex Predators. The event will bring a ton of new content which will be revealed at a later date. The Master of the Hunt event will take place on May 6, 2021.
This unique system in LoL WR will be added on Patch 2.2b and will trigger when respective champions meet the following requirements;
The Nemesis Duel won’t activate every match, but an in-game announcement will alert everyone when it does. A champion wins the Nemesis Duel event when the opposing champion dies within 3 seconds of taking damage from the winning champion.
The first Nemeis Duel in Wild Rift is called “The Hunt is On!”
Darius’ raw stats is a bit too much for his enemies, the devs are tuning him down.
Draven may be aone of the hardest marksman, but when given the chance, he snowballs hard. The devs are reducing his overall DPS to make room for enemies to fight back.
1st Skill: Spinning Axe
Damage: 55/60/65/70 → 45/50/55/60
The devs are nerfing her ultimate skill so she don’t always rely on it to escape sticky situations.

The devs are giving her a slight nerf so skilled players can’t consistently take advantage of her.

3rd Skill: Zenith Blade
A simple bugfix for Teemo’s 3rd skill.
3rd Skill: Guerrilla Warfare
Ziggs early game is too powerful, according to the devs. They adjust his 1st skill to keep him from spamming too much during the early game.

Ashe’s 2nd skill will be much more consistent now with faster cooldown.
2nd Skill: Volley
Tristana’s burst damage has been amplified to allow her to keep up with other marksmen.

The devs are buffing his 2nd skill to make skill shots more rewarding for Varus players.

Her ultimate skill is pretty weak during the early game. The devs are amplifying his early game potential.

Xayah’s skill cooldowns are far too long in Wild Rift with the lack of ability haste items available. The devs are amplifying her a bit to compensate for this.
