Rotating game mode queue now live!

It’s about time we did an Ascension update!

Each week we’ve noticed that as players get better at Ascension, taking Xerath feels more and more like a trap. You engage him first, do all the hard work and then some Lux snipes him from across the Scar and you wonder why you ever bothered at all. Well, NOT ANYMORE!

Ascended Xerath

Ascended Xerath has felt like a trap for a while. It didn’t feel good to do all the work and have the enemy team snipe him at the end. He now drops an Ascended relic you must be present to collect and Ascend.

Relic Ascendent

  • Upon death, Ascended Xerath now drops an ascended relic after 3 seconds. The champion who stands unopposed on the relic will Ascend!
  • Enemies can body-block and steal the Ascension, so clear them all off the ascended platform beforehand to be safe.
  • In the event of allied champions squabbling over the ancient power, priority is given to the player who killed Xerath.

Ascension is now available and lasts through the evening on Monday (we’ll shut it down very early Tuesday morning--usually between 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM).

If you need to catch up on the rules for any game mode, check back at leagueoflegends.com each Friday, and we’ll give you the lowdown in a quick post like this one.

As part of our ongoing commitment to refreshing the RGM modes, we’ve started with Ascension this week and the Ascended Xerath change. Hopefully now you can engage him guilt-free and become the Ascended god-beast-man-creature you always knew you could be. Go forth. FOR SHURIMA!
