League of Legends: Wild Rift just got a new major update. Patch 3.5 introduces two popular heroes from the PC version of the game, Aatrox and Kayn.

Kayn’s Willpower or Rhaast’s Dominance?

Kayn slashes his way to Wild Rift in Patch 3.5. He uses a weapon called the Darkin Scythe, which contains Rhaast’s soul.

He has a pretty unique passive that lets him choose between two forms: the tanky Darkin Rhaast or the more formidable assassin (Kayn’s Willpower). 

Siding with Rhaast can turn Kayn into a hardened champion who can withstand hits better, thanks to his ability to heal based on a percentage of damage dealt.

On the other hand, helping Kayn bend the weapon to his will turn him into the Shadow Assassin, which has skills for killing sprees. Unlike Rhaast, Kayn deals bonus damage upon entering combat.

Kayn’s abilities are slightly different depending on what path the player chooses. For example, Rhaast’s version of Blade’s Reach will knock enemies up when hit, making it an ideal crowd-control attack. Conversely, the Shadow Assassin’s version allows Kayn to use this ability while on the move.

Aatrox Strikes Fear Into His Opponents

Another hero introduced in Patch 3.5 is Aatrox. He is a really formidable champion in Wild Rift, thanks to his ability to clear lanes quickly.

His first skill, The Darkin Blade, prompts Aatrox to swing his gigantic weapon. While that may seem simple on the surface, he can actually cast it two more times in succession, with each cast dealing more damage than the last.

If that doesn’t scare enemies, his Infernal Chains ability will. That’s because this can pull the first enemy hit, slowing them down by 25% for 1.5 seconds. If an enemy champion is still within the impact area after a brief period, they’ll be dragged back in again, receiving the same amount of damage.

Umbral Dash provides Aatrox with two benefits. It has a passive effect that grants him a 21% physical vamp against enemy champions, allowing him to heal whenever he slices enemies with his giant blade. For the active effect, Aatrox dashes forward, giving him a way of getting to enemy champions easily. 

Aatrox can bring about an apocalypse with his ultimate, World Ender. This unleashes the demonic form that grants him increased attack damage, a boost in movement speed, and improved healing for 10 seconds. The duration is extended per takedown.

So, which of these new champions will you choose?

League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 3.5 is available on Android and iOS.
