Runes Reforged will completely change League of Legends as we know it. Here are some tips on preparing for the biggest patch update to ever hit the game.

When Runes Reforged goes live on Wed., Nov. 8, 2017, it will completely change everything we know about League of Legends. Developers are completely rehauling the old runes system in favor of one that actually has a bigger impact in a match.

In order to prepare for all the big changes, as always, knowledge is power. Just like all the amazing strategies to use in order to win matches in League of Legends, it’s just as important to know all the different playstyles that await so you find the best one that suits you.

There will be five unique paths to choose from in Runes Reforged. Whether you want to burst damage in a blink of an eye, have better crowd control, or even add more survivability, there is something for everyone.

The five paths are Precision, Domination, Sorcery, Resolve, and Inspiration. They’ll be 60 or so total runes that will go live once the update is complete so the possibilities are endless. Of course, anything can change between now and the update but expect to see developers constantly tweak and update things as they see sit to ensure high-quality and fair competitiveness.
