Proving that it’s going strong since its release last April, Riot’s immersive collectable card game, Legends of Runeterra, recently unveiled its first expansion with Call of the Mountain. This new bi-monthly card release series is the beginning of a three-expansion, set in the new and larger region of Targon.
In case you’re wondering, the next two expansions are slated to come out later this year (October and December). They are relatively smaller than CotM, each one featuring 40 new cards with 3 champions. By the time the whole set is launched, all regions will have its fair share of champions and almost equal share of other cards.
New region, cards, champions and keywords to explore
Expect to get a mythical feel with the new region. As you climb Mount Targon, you’ll stand a chance to raise the ability of your units to a whole new level. Targon ushers in a stimulating cosmic realm for LoR. Power up and face your enemies, meet cosmic beings and other celestials that will all help to fulfil your quest for victory.
Players can get their hands on 89 new cards (51 for Targon and 38 for the current regions). There are also 7 distinct champions (4 for Targon including Leona, Diana, Aurelion Sol and Taric plus Nocturne for Shadow Isles, Trundle for Freljord and Lulu for Iona).
Deck holders will also encounter 6 new keywords. Spellshield: negates the next enemy spell or skill that would influence a unit with the keyword. Fury: is when a unit kills another unit with a strike and survives, it grants +1 Power | +1 Health. Daybreak: Play this as your first card in the round and you’ll gain a bonus (dependent on card text). Nightfall: You get a bonus if this is not the first card you play in the round (bonus dependent on card text). Behold: Lets you gain a bonus if you have a type of card in play or hand. And finally, Invoke: allows you to pick a Celestial Card from among 3 to create in hand.
A quick rundown of the Region Road Updates are as follows:
*Targon Region Road added with 20 levels.
*Freljord, Ionia, and Shadow Isles Region Roads extended from 25 to 29 levels.
*In Patch 1.8 Levels 1-25 on all current roads can now drop Call of the Mountain cards.
