Patch 1.7: What’s new?

Patch 1.7: What’s new?

So, Patch 1.7 went live the 7th of May. After some updates were performed before the patch went live, we finally have a new version of the game, coming with its champion buffs and masteries changes. We’ll try to cover everything in this article!

Referral program

After a few requests and a long time awaited, it has finally arrived!

You can have at most 3 referrals, and you will be rewarded based on their engagement in the game! This is the perfect time to bring all your friends into this game, and get 4 chances to summon a very nice legendary!

Note that the reward can only be collected once per slot. If one of your friends decides to stop the game, you can remove him from your referral slots and get a new friend in, however, you won’t receive the rewards twice.

New missions

Two new sets of 75 missions have been added to the game. The quests will probably be challenging, but the rewards are worth it: 3rd set of mission rewards a legendary tome, and the 4th set rewards the Arbiter.

Masteries rework
