Ornn, the Fire Below the Mountain

Playhem Patch 4.2 introduces the Ice Dragon, a new elemental dragon, to Wild Rift. Defeating the Ice Dragon grants ability haste, particularly for spellcasting champions. The Rift transforms into a frozen terrain when the Ice Dragon is the first dragon killed in a match.

This icy environment causes ice to appear along the jungle and river edges, providing players with a mobility advantage. Additionally, Frozen Fruit will spawn, freezing any enemies within its blast radius and making them untargetable and invulnerable for a brief moment.

Wild Rift Playhem Update – Gameplay Item Changes

The Playhem patch focuses on refining roles for a more enjoyable and rewarding gaming experience. While the previous patch addressed Tanks, Patch 4.2 introduces new possibilities for Marksmen. The Immortal Shieldbow offers extra protection for Marksmen, with its Lifeline passive activating when the player takes significant damage, granting a temporary shield and increased attack damage.

The Collector provides a powerful combination of offensive stats, enabling players to execute enemies below a certain health threshold and earn additional gold. Caster Marksmen can also look forward to enhancements in Phantom Dancer, Manamune, and Essence Reaver items.

Wild Rift Playhem Update – Enhanced Frame Rate Mode

The Enhanced Frame Rate Mode is a fresh gameplay feature arriving with Patch 4.2, enabling players to enjoy Wild Rift at 90Hz or 120Hz. The availability of this mode is contingent on your device’s refresh rate. Once the mode is live, you can enable it manually through the game’s settings
