The next major League of Legends event, Sentinels of the Light, begins on July 8 and introduces the new champion Akshan along with a series of themed skins around the larger storyline of Ruination of Runeterra. And as part of that, Riot is for the first time “teaming up” with itself, having a ton of crossover items in a new Valorant update.
Valorant’s “Ruination” skins are based on League of Legends, and as you can see in the video above by Youtuber Hitscan,
Valorant they have a lot of mystical jewels and fog going on. There’s a Phantom, a Guardian, a Ghost, a Phantom, and most interestingly, a melee weapon that will be familiar to League’s heads: the ruined king’s blade.
This is a broken sword at level 1, but at level 2 the broken blade is restored with crystal light. It takes up a big chunk of the screen, so it’s not for me, but it looks good and don’t worry about the range – level 2 doesn’t extend it and only you see the “ghost” blade part, so not to confuse other players (if you want to see it in action, here’s a timestamped video).
There are also some patch notes for the journey. “Sage can no longer place Barrier Orb on some bullets while in the air”, which I’ve never seen but it sounds crazy, “Fixed bug where Skye was able to trigger the guide light flash while suppressed”, “Fixed the ability to heal KAY / O while on the ground in NULL / CMD “and” Fixed Sova’s Recon Bolt bullet appearing to be deployed for enemies when flying in the air. ”
Valorant patch 3.01 was released on July 7, and while it may not come with all the bells and whistles of the larger patches, it still contains some valuable agent and quality of life updates for players.
Sage, Skye, KAY / O, and Sova are all lined up for bug fixes that may not seem like much at first glance, but they should help gamers who use them frequently.
