Jungling? All The Cool Kids Do It, Mom.
The long awaited Summoner’s Rift update was patched yesterday for bots and Team Builder for North America. In what is seemingly a bit of competitive spirit, Riot dropped that patch along with Blizzard’s release of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, and it’s sure to garner a fair bit of attention.
Five years since its release, the Summoner’s Rift map has undergone minor changes mostly centered around trimming edges and smoothing animation. Now for the first time it has received a total make over that underscores the history of Summoner’s Rift. The new map sports a darker but warmly welcomed change of scenery.
Most importantly, with this release we get to see a first hand look at the upcoming smite changes and new jungle buff changes on Public Beta Environment. We’ll take a look at who they are, what they do, and how you should handle them.
Let’s get started, Summoners.
