Legends of Runeterra Patch 3.14 Notes - Expansion, Cards, More

By now, players know Legends of Runeterra to be an ever-evolving card game bringing about various new Champions, mechanics, and more. Since the previous patch, the games received some minor adjustments, maybe not too noteworthy compared to its current patch, which features a new expansion filled with fresh additions.

On 30th August 2022, Riot Games announced its latest expansion hitting Legends of Runeterra called The Darkin Saga: Awakening. The first chapter of the expansion features Kayn and Rhaast as the highlighted character to debut. Alongside this champion, other Darkin-themed Cards make their way to the game.

Subsequently, a Corrupted Event will happen during the expansion comprising ancient evils awakened across Runeterra. Players will get to earn free nodes and many other things.

Other Champions

Besides these aforementioned champions, these next few will be available in Legends of Runeterra. Although Riot Games haven’t mentioned anything meaningful, it seems the meta-flow theme will move towards equipping weapons and using these new mechanics to win games.

  • Veigar

  • Leona

  • Diana

  • Ashe

Patch 3.14 New Features

Besides the aforementioned card mechanics and new card vocabs, here are some of the other features making their way to Legends of Runeterra.

Flow (Vocab)

Flow is a new Vocab coming to Legends of Runeterra.

Flow has already existed as an effect, but it’s been recategorized as a new Vocab. A card triggers its Flow ability only if you’ve played 2+ spells or skills the previous round.

It helps set up attacks the following turn and prevent them from getting damaged depending on how you use it.

Improvise (Vocab)

Improvise is another new Vocab that takes a turn on the item mechanic. The effect allows you to choose one of two random options from a depleting pool of equipment and equip it to an ally. If the ally wasn't played from hand, it equips a random Equipment instead.

Weekly Adventures

Weekly Adventures is a brand new type of Adventure to Path of Champions. The feature features three different difficulties and will be randomly generated from existing Adventures and Mutators to keep things fresh. Players can earn rewards by playing Weekly Adventures.

Corrupted Event

These are the Corrupted Event rewards.

“Ancient evils have awoken across all of Runeterra; hope dims as corruption erodes our final bastion of hope.” The Corrupted Event allows players to get their hands on new Icons, Cards, Emotes, and Champion Skins.

“This pass, and future Event Passes, also come with many free nodes, so you’ll be able to earn rewards as you play whether you purchase the Premium Event Pass or not. It should still take roughly the same amount of time and effort to complete this pass as previous Event Passes.”

Players can purchase the pass before “September 14 to get an exclusive quest that rewards ten Corrupted Crystals and a Rare Prismatic Chest.

The event pass grants access to an upgraded event path with premium rewards and immediately unlocks the Lil’ Rhaast. All unlockable rewards can be viewed on the Event rewards road.” The Event, including the pass, expires on 5th October, 2022, at 10 am PT.
