WR - RUNE GUIDE

In League of Legends: Wild Rift, it is essential to understand how Runes work. Equipping your Champions with Runes can make them more powerful and more formidable in battle. Players can customize their use of Runes before the start of the game, during the champion select phase, to boost their performance.

Different sets of Runes work better with certain playstyles, so choosing the correct one will be a game-changer and will help determine who gets the upper hand in battle.

What are Runes in Wild Rift?

Runes are used to strengthen the abilities of a Champion. They give stat-enhancing effects and are chosen right before a match begins. Players can opt to select the available presets or manage them depending on enemy team composition and what suits their playstyle.

Keystone: This is the main rune used in Wild Rift. Keystone Runes feature defensive or offensive effects that impact a player’s gameplay. It is therefore vital to choose the correct Keystone Rune for your Champion. Players can select 1 from the 8 runes to arm the champion they use.

Minor: Minor Runes are offensive in nature. Players can select 3 of these runes to boost their champion’s strengths or enhance their existing strength.

Wild Rift Runes List

There are 26 Runes that can be used in Wild Rift. A complete rune page is comprised of 4 runes types, namely: Keystone (Main), Domination (Damage/Offensive bonus), Resolve (Health, Resistance, Regen, etc.), and Inspiration (Utility stats like man, bonus gold, etc.).
