Several upcoming League of Legends: Wild Rift champions have been leaked by data miners since the Alpha Test for Wild Rift announcement. New champions Riven, Irelia, Lucian, and Senna will be added to Wild Rift China, along with some new skins once Alpha Test Phase goes live. In a recent announcement, the dev team confirmed the release of Irelia for the upcoming patch 2.3. However, the other three champions still have not been confirmed for global release. Here is more information regarding the upcoming champions in Wild Rift China Alpha Test.
Earlier this week, Riot Games revealed that Wild Rift China Server would be released with new content specifically created for Chinese players. Following the announcement, data miners have unveiled a few leaks regarding the upcoming champions and their possible skins for the Wild Rift China Alpha.
A recent data leak from YikeZ revealed that Riven, Irelia, Lucian, and Senna are all set to be added to the game when the Alpha tests of Wild Rift China goes live.
Riven is a fighter champion with incredible mobility and play potential. Her skills “Broken Wings” and “Valor” allow her to reposition herself between fights while her “Ki Burst” will stun enemies for a brief period of time.
Irelia is one of the champions with the highest mobility and 1v5 potentials in the game. She can zone out enemies with her abilities making it almost impossible for them to escape her ambush. Nonetheless, her mechanic is quite complicated, so it will be interesting to see how the developers will make her fun to play in Wild Rift.
Lucian is a marksman champion with dash attacks and a relentless chasing power. He can mark enemies with his abilities and gain bonus movement speed if he hits them.
Senna is the most unique of the four leaked champions that will appear in Wild Rift China. She is a support marksman who heals allies while dealing damage to enemies. Rather than last hitting creeps for gold, she can simply collect souls that randomly drop when someone dies, earning gold and extra perks.
The devs are yet to announce the official release date of Wild Rift China. However, it is likely just around the corner, considering that the Chinese servers for Wild Rift have been in the works for quite some time now.
There is still no word on whether the new features from the upcoming Wild Rift China Alpha Test will be implemented on other servers of LoL WR. Players should keep an eye out for the Dev Diary for Patch 2.3 at the end of May 2021.
