Expected Changes in League of Legends and Secrets About New Season 8

The team of developers is ready to disclose secrets about changes in League of Legends season 8. Currently the system of runes and talents is pretty difficult, that’s why developers decided to pay attention at it. The new system of runes will have fewer options to select, and that means, each of them will have more value. In the previous seasons there were 60 separate slots, but just the smallest part influences on the game process of your championship. The majority gives to your character “must-have” characteristics, such as speed of attack, armour and opposition of the magic. Because of it the selection of runes and talents becomes a routine.


Developers decided to put on the back burner “must-have” characteristics and to center on what really matters. The key talents are the first check of this theory - to concentrate the power on separate options. As the key talents, new runes will help not to focus on passive parameters, but on the effects, which determine the game style.

When LOL season 8 starts you will find out that you have 6 runes, which are divided into 3 categories: key, big, small.

Key Runes in LOL

You have a chance to select only one key rune. They are more powerful, than the key talents. These runes, displaying at the screen of the loading will influence on the whole game process. The key runes have powerful, noticeable effects, which determine the game style of your championship. It’s possible to wait some time and to increase suddenly the attack rate and destroy the opponents. In addition, you could have a pet, which would follow all the time and help you to fight.

Big Runes and Their Advantages in New Season 8 LOL

The big runes are considered to be the most innovative in the whole system. They include powerful effects, special sound, visual effects in the game. You will be able to see when they work and how they change the quality of the game. One of such runes is called Extra Health. That means you can play more, because a kind of armor will protect you during the exact time. There is also a big rune: Totem-zombie. If you destroy the opponent totem, instead of it you can see your own Totem-zombie. Totem-zombies are visible for everyone, and exist during 180 seconds. They help to get more advantages from limitation of enemies’ visibility. Depriving of opponents’ visibility, you extend your own visibility and increase the limit of the totems, which can exist at the same time.

Small Runes and How They Can be Useful in LOL New Season

The small runes are almost unnoticeable, they have not so much influence like other ones, but they have their role in the game process. They are able to accent the specialization of your character. There are different effects:

  • raising your parameters
