Two new support items may be coming to Wild Rift Patch 3.4
According to a video posted by the data miner , upgradable items referenced as a shield and a sickle may be arriving in Wild Rift soon.
Based on the descriptions provided, fans are speculating that they may be the Relic Shield and Spectral Sickle which are both staple support items in LoL PC. These items may be tweaked to fit the pacing of Wild Rift.
Relic Shield is one of the best starter items for tank supports. The item allows support champions to execute and instantly kill minions who are low on health. Upon killing a minion, both the support and the nearest ally champion gain kill gold without penalties.
The Spectral Sickle is perfect for long-range support. This item rewards bonus gold for every ability or normal attack hit on enemies.
Both these items have three stacks on cooldown and reduce every time the conditions are met in exchange for the bonus gold. These items also force supports to not overfarm as they reduce gold income if they last hit too many minions.
Upon acquiring a total of 500 bonus gold from the items, they each get upgraded and become a warding item with three wards in stock. These wards get restocked upon returning to the base.
Fans should take note that Riot Games is yet to officially confirm the addition of the two new support items in Wild Rift. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for more updates in the future.
