It's been two weeks since the release of patch 3.4 in Wild Rift, so you know what that means - a new patch. Patch 3.4a will rectify certain aspects of the game that have been left unbalanced after the recent introduction of new champions and several items/enchants.

As with every patch, champions and items will be either buffed, nerfed, or adjusted. There are two key takeaways you need to know about patch 3.4a. The first is that Riot has noticed that one of the new champions, Gwen, is relatively weak compared to her top-laner counterparts so she will be buffed. Contrarily, Riot will be nerfing two of the new patch 3.4 items: Relic Shield and Spectral Sickle. Patch 3.4a will be released on September 28.

That being said, let's look at these and other changes that we can expect in Wild Rift patch 3.4a.
