Riot is diving deeper into their plans to rework and revamp champion roles in Wild Rift. The ultimate goal is to ensure that every role feels "satisfying, rewards, and fun to play."

In previous updates, we saw changes to Supports, Junglers, and Tanks. Now, patch 4.2 will be looking to improve the Marksmen role. Two new items will be introduced and upgrades will be made to existing marksmen items.

This update will certainly be hugely beneficial to the Dragon Lane in Wild Rift. We know you want to know what's in store, so here's a look at the new marksmen items and upcoming item changes.

Wild Rift Patch 4.2 New Marksmen Item - Immortal Shieldbow

When you take damage that would reduce your HP below a certain threshold with Immortal Shieldbow, you'll gain a shield to absorb some of the incoming damage.

It's a new item meant to add extra security for Marksmen hoping to create a strong build in the late game. The shield could provide players with the tools necessary to survive jungle brawls or 2v2s in the Dragon Lane.

Here are the specific details of the Immortal Shieldbow:

  • Build Path (Total cost: 3,200 gold): Noon Quiver (1,200 gold) + Long Sword (500 gold) + Brawler’s Gloves (500 gold) + 1,000 gold
  • Attack Damage: 40
  • Critical strike rate: 25%
  • Attack speed: 15%
  • Physical vamp: 5
  • Lifeline (Passive): Damage that puts you under 35% will produce a shield that absorbs 200 + 50 damage per 10% critical strike rate, lasting for 5 seconds (90-second cooling time)
  • Battle Furor (Passive): Activating Lifeline will provide 10% physical vamp for 8 seconds

Here are the specific details of The Collector:

  • Build Path (Total cost: 2,900 gold): Serrated Dirk (1,000 gold) + Cloak of Agility (1,000 gold) + 900 gold
  • Attack Damage: 40
  • Critical strike rate: 25%
  • Killer (Passive): +10 Armor Penetration
  • Death and Taxes (Passive): Dealing damage that would put an enemy champion below 5% of their maximum health executes them. Champion kills will give an additional 25
