Wild Rift Season 1 has officially begun! With the start of a new season, Riot released some huge new changes. From new champions, official season rewards, and even new events, here are the updates brought alongside Season 1 of Wild Rift.
Glorious Tryndamere is the official end of season reward for achieving past Gold in Wild Rift Ranked. This skin is unique to Wild Rift, one of many Wild Rift exclusive skins to come. Alongside the Tryndamere skin, Icons and Player Emblem that corresponds to the player’s season rank were announced.
But unlike League of Legends PC, Wild Rift seems to not have an honor system to limit rewards. Be sure to grind away at ranked, to acquire the season rewards.

Wild Rift stated that the Yordle Event would make its debut alongside the champions at the start of Season 1. Though the champions come from League of Legends, some of the Yordles seem to play differently. For example, Teemo now has a Vayne like roll and turns invisible while on the move. Watch the official event trailer to see more of the teased champions.

Even though the season officially started, the yordles are nowhere to be seen. Perhaps Graves still has them in his cage, waiting for Lulu’s great prison break. Expect the event to start in the next coming days, as Lulu and her rock head to rescue the rest of the Yordles.
In case the previous references were missed, watch Riot’s short cinematic here.
The event offers Icons, Borders, Emotes, and even a Bauble for rewards. Be sure to keep attentive as Wild Rift brings the Yordle Event to debut for exclusive rewards and first looks at the new champions that will shake the meta of Wild Rift.
