And don't worry, support players: these tips apply to you as well, so you can be an even greater asset to your team. So, without further ado, here are the five best League of Legends: Wild Rift tips for beginners to help you dominate the mobile MOBA.
5. Map Awareness
It's difficult to focus on your mini-map while fighting another champion and trying to win your lane, but if you want to die less and start capitalizing on other champion fights on the map, it's crucial to keep an eye on your mini-map. Assume your mid-lane has engaged in a fight and is winning, causing the opposing player to flee into the ravine. If you have a heads up on your mini-map, you can most likely cut off the enemy player and most likely come in to help capitalize on the kill.
One of the best Wild Rift tips for beginners is to buy and use Wards, as much as you possibly can. Wards are used to gain additional map vision and can even grant vision to areas that are obscured by the fog of war. Warding the bushes where the ravine connects to your lane is one of the most important wards if you're playing top, middle, or bottom lane. This is because the enemy jungler will usually gank from here. If you place a ward there and keep an eye on the mini-map, you'll have a few extra seconds to retreat to your turret and avoid the gank. This is a big one if you often find yourself dying this way.
4. Champion Difficulty
When you first start playing League of Legends: Wild Rift, there will be a lot of champions you want to play, most of them purely due to the fact of how cool they look. At least, that's the case for us most of the time; however, the champion who most appeals to you may not be the best one to play as. That's because each champion is rated in difficulty from one to three. As you might expect, champions with a level three rating are the most difficult to learn, with the toughest abilities to master.
So, one of the best Wild Rift tips for beginners is to start off playing with a level one or two difficulty champion. The majority of these champions' abilities are simple point-and-click style, making them much easier to use and learn. As a result, you'll find yourself hitting more shots and do a better job of harassing the enemy champion in your lane. Which, of course, means you'll be winning your lane more often than losing it.
3. Champion Builds and Items
In League of Legends: Wild Rift you get in-game gold to buy items from the merchant to better your champion stats throughout the match. The best items cost a lot of gold and you'll be looking to grab this in the late stages of the game when your Champions level is maxed out. However, you still need to buy items before that, in the early stages to give your champion that extra speed or damage boost. It can be confusing what items to buy, that's why you'll want to get a “build guide” as they're called.
There are hundreds of build guides for every champion in the game. So, before you load into a match, write down or memorize one of the build guides because it will make a significant difference in your champion's stats and in-game performance. For example, different items are meant to be associated with different champion types. Some increase melee damage, which you don't want to buy if you're playing a ranged character. So, one of the best Wild Rift tips for beginners is to learn what items work best to buy for your champion, which a build guide will help you with.
2. Last Hit Minions
To follow up on our previous beginner tip, you will need gold to purchase items in-game. So, the faster you can stockpile gold, the quicker you can buy items to boost your champion's stats. And, If you can buy items before the other champion in your lane, you'll be able to dominate and harass them more easily. You earn gold by killing enemies, taking down turrets, and killing minions. As a result, one of the best Wild Rifts tips for beginners is to always last-hit minions.
What exactly do we mean by this? Keep an eye out for enemy minions with dangerously low health in your lane, and use your auto attack to get the last hit to kill them. You'll get more gold if you do. If another minion kills another minion, you will not receive the extra gold. By doing this effectively, you can quickly accumulate gold and purchase better items for your champion at a faster rate.
1. Play Consistently
Like any competitive video game, the best thing to do is play consistently. Doing so will give you a better feel for the game, and you'll feel more comfortable employing these Wild Rift tips for beginners in your game. You'll start to remember what items work best with each champion and how to more consistently last-hit minions. With that, your map awareness will increase, and you'll be able to work toward the more difficult, level three champions. So, at least try and get a couple of matches in a day if you can. Then, you'll be dominating Wild Rift in no time!
