Tons of new and exciting features have been introduced in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 3.5, including notable Jungle Changes, as well as new items.

Jungle Updates

It is without question that the jungler is one of the most challenging roles in Wild Rift. That said, Riot Games wants to preserve the impact that this role provides, but at the same time, cut out things that are too complex for most players.

The Buff Sharing mechanic is now available in Patch 3.5. Killing either the Red Brambleback or Blue Sentinel after eight minutes into the game will drop a temporary buff that players can pick up. All they have to do is to come within range of the buff circle and they’ll get the benefits shortly after.

It is worth noting that the buff will only drop when the jungler clears the camp, so it’s important for the designated jungler to coordinate with their team as it only lasts for 45 seconds before it disappears.

Aside from Buff Sharing, a jungler-specific buff has also been introduced called Conservation. This buff encourages junglers to strike a balance between farming and ganking. In other words, those who only focus on one thing will not receive the added gold bonus Conservation provides.

So, how does this buff really work? Well, the jungler gains six or 12 charge stacks every five seconds depending on the amount of gold they currently have, up to a maximum of 150. These stacks are “cashed in” whenever the jungler kills a large monster. The extra gold can help reduce the time it takes for them to get fully geared up, so this new Conservation mechanic is pretty useful.

New Items

Two new items have been added by Wild Rift ’s latest update. The first is Horizon Focus, great for mages to have because it grants 80 Ability Power, 150 HP, and 15 Haste. But more importantly, its Hypershot passive allows mages to apply a stack to an enemy champion whenever they hit them with a non-targeted ability. Upon reaching three stacks, they will be consumed to deal magic damage.

The second new item called Lord Dominik’s Regard is pretty useful for marksmen and has been slightly modified for Wild Rift. The item still gives the wielder 35 attack damage, 25% crit chance, and up to 30% armor penetration, but this time, instead of Giant Slayer, it now has the Adrenaline passive.

So, how does Adrenaline function? When players are out of combat for a few seconds after encountering enemy Champions, their next attack against another enemy champion will have an 80% increased attack speed.

What are your thoughts about the recent jungle changes? Which of the new items appeals to you the most?
