League of Legends: Wild Rift – Katarina is coming with patch 2.1A
Update 2.1A is just around the corner in League of Legends: Wild Rift, and spin-to-win mage assassin champion “Katarina” will finally arrive in the game. Additionally, seven different skins will also be coming to the game in this patch. When she arrives at the game, she could be purchased with gold/wild cores or made obtainable via in-game missions. Talking about other champions, few of them will be buffed, whereas some will get a small nerf. Additionally, some of the in-game items have also been adjusted by Riot Games. Let’s take a look!
Katarina, the Sinister Blade, is a mage assassin champion who is mostly played in the middle lane. She is considered one of the most deadly assassin champions because of her mobility and the resets on her abilities after a successful enemy takedown. As per Riot, she will be released later in this 2.1A patch.
The following skins will be coming in either patch 2.1A or 2.1B:
- El Tigre Braum
