We've got a big Legends of Runeterra patch hitting this week with the release of Guardians of the Ancient less than a day away! We've got some new cosmetics coming, region road updates, some nerfs to the popular Nasus Thresh archetype, and more!

Guardians of the Ancient will be playable at approximately 11 AM PST on May 5. (2 PM EST, 20:00 CEST)

New Keyword: Blade Dance

We've got a new keyword coming in the expansion that relates to Irelia and Ionia. Blade Dance starts a free attack with that many summoned Blades.

Quote From Patch Notes
Nasus Thresh decks have been thriving and consistently surpassing our win rate (55%) and play rate (15%) thresholds for what we'd consider healthy. We’re making small changes to the Shadow Isles portions of the deck that have continued to cause meta problems. For now, while Nasus is a clear powerhouse for the deck, we want to leave the power of Shurima intact. We are watchlisting Nasus so we can continue to monitor his performance while investigating potential changes to him in the future if he continues to overperform.

Card Nerfs

New Challenges

Two new challenges are coming that make use of Landmark synergies and Blade Dance.

Region Road Updates
