1. Meet the characters

Wild Rift, as well as League of Legends for PC, bets on the confrontation between teams formed by five people in which each one plays a role. Some characters are more likely to take a lot of damage (the famous tanks); there are specific ones to promote support; and those more specialized in dealing damage to opponents—just to name a few examples.

With over 50 characters available, the ideal is to see which of them best suit your play style, as they have skill variations. Certainly, at some point, you will find those that offer the desired combination, then just look at the formation of the team and choose the one that best suits the needs of the match.

2. Learn game routes

In addition to knowing the characters, it is essential to understand and memorize the game’s five routes:

  • Ground: suitable for characters able to absorb more damage before dying.
  • Jungle: Perfect for champion hunters able to move with more versatility, helping to catch enemies off guard with their skills.
  • Middle Route: suitable for users of magic techniques, considering that there are great opportunities to level up and improve the character so that he becomes the biggest damage dealer on the team.
  • Support:perfect for members of this category, as they are more effective at healing or even delaying the advance of enemies.
  • Pair:is for shooting champions, who are fast and do high damage individually (in addition to being the most suitable point to hurt opponents).

3. Know the elements and features of the map

A good player must also know everything that the game map is capable of offering. So keep an eye out for Minions (simple units that appear on the map to generate coins and experience), healing tree that appears on routes (it drops an item that regenerates some of the character’s health), turrets and Nexus (the key for victory, as the team is only considered champion if it is knocked down).

Another important detail is the collection of coins that guarantee the resources to buy the best equipment for your champion and other important items to survive the fights.

4. Take all tutorials

As in many online games, League of Legends: Wild Rift has some tutorials responsible for giving an idea not only of the game controls, but also to show a little of the possible strategies that can be used in the matches.

In addition to this knowledge, completing the tutorials guarantees the choice of an initial champion and a certain amount of blue essence (which serves to unlock more characters on the selection screen). Therefore, complete them all to be even more prepared for your journey towards the opposing Nexus.
