Akshan is the latest champion to be added to the game. He boasts a marksman-assassin playstyle, perfect for mid lane, with stealth when he's close to terrain and a grappling hook he can use to catch up with his targets. He can also avenge his allies by killing their killer, which earns him bonus gold and lowers the killed ally's respawn timer.

Brand, the Burning Vengeance

Brand is another champion to join the Wild Rift with 2.4. He is a fire mage who can be both mid lane or a support champion. He has a set of abilities that gain new powers while his opponents are set on fire, and his ultimate is called Pyroclasam, a devastating torrent of fire "that can reduce your enemies to ashes."

Nunu & Willump

Wild Rift 2.4 New items

For players who like to focus their builds around critical strikes, this is a perfect item. Whenever you use an ability, you will get a stack of Radiance, giving you a temporarily bonus to your critical strike.  

Crystalline Reflector

It reduces incoming physical damage and reflects it back at enemies.

Essence Reaver

It restores mana through attacks and adds additional damage to your abilities.
