After the launch of the 'Domination' expansion, Riot has updated Legends of Runeterra with a new patch update. Be warned, this is a smaller one compared to the ones that we're used to.

Rather than introducing a flurry of card buffs and nerfs, Riot was focused on fine-tuning the game by fixing several bugs and adjusting the 'landmark' mechanic in Legends of Runeterra. Let's go over all of the details in patch 3.17.
