Legends of Runeterra’s next update, Patch 2.14.0, will introduce the Beyond the Bandlewood set and the game’s final region, Bandle City. The latest patch goes live tomorrow, Aug. 25, and is adding 126 new cards for players to collect.

While players may be dismayed at the lack of balance changes in this update, Riot said the next set of major card changes will happen two months from now on Oct. 20 with Patch 2.18.0’s release. But while a set date is noted for a larger scale of updates, the team did say this doesn’t rule out any minor changes happening in the meantime leading up to Patch 2.18.0.

Here are all the notes for LoR’s Patch 2.14.0.

New expansion: Beyond the Bandlewood

“Time for a new adventure – the Bandle City region launches in this patch, along with 126 new cards, including 9 new champions, new keywords, an Event Pass, and much more in our latest expansion – Beyond the Bandlewood,” the patch notes read.

Beyond the Bandlewood will be playable when Patch 2.14.0 goes live tomorrow, Aug. 25 around 1pm CT.

New region: Bandle City

“Bandle City embodies the spirit of whimsy and adventure, with magic, tricks, and multi-region cards – cards that can be one region or another,” Riot said. “When building a deck with such cards, the only requirement is to have a single-region card from either of the cards’ two regions. We can’t wait to see what kinds of combinations you’ll come up with for all the friendly Yordles across Runeterra.”

New cards

“Over the past weeks, we’ve been revealing all of the cards being added in Beyond the
Bandlewood
,” the patch notes read. “Head to one of the galleries below to get the full list of new cards, and start your theorycrafting.”

New keywords: Impact and Manifest

Beyond the Bandlewood is adding two new keywords to LoR: Impact and Manifest. The expansion will also introduce several cards that revolve around these mechanics.

“Followers with Impact deal one damage to the enemy Nexus when they strike while attacking,” Riot said. “While it may not seem like much on its own, multiple attackers with Impact will stack the effect, allowing you to deal significant burst damage to the enemy Nexus in one fell swoop.”

“Manifest embodies the spirit of adventure in Beyond the Bandlewood, letting you choose between three cards chosen at random (within specific parameters, depending on the card used) when the effect is activated.”

New challenges, quests, and AI decks

“New Challenges and Quests have been added to introduce the keywords, archetypes, and champions being added in Beyond the Bandlewood,” the patch notes read. “AI decks featuring Bandle City, as well as other cards added in the expansion have also been added to the Vs. AI opponent pool.”

Upcoming card updates

“As we mentioned in the 2.11.0 patch notes, we don’t generally time live design updates during new card release windows,” Riot said. “With 126 new collectible cards and a few entirely-new archetypes added in this expansion, Beyond the Bandlewood is our largest expansion yet, so we’re keeping a close eye on how various decks perform before making any changes.

Looking forward, our next batch of card updates is planned for Patch 2.18.0, on October 20, but it’s possible we might see some small updates between now and then. We’ll be sharing more information on our card update cadence and philosophy moving forward around that time as well. There’s a lot to play with in this expansion, so we’re looking forward to seeing what decks emerge in the coming weeks.”
