League of Legends: Wild Rift‘s 2.2 update is set to join the game on March 30, bringing new tank items, icons, and the role preference ranked system to the mobile game.

It will also lay the groundwork for a few highly anticipated features, such as the ARAM game mode and an event surrounding Kha’Zix and Rengar’s rivalry in the jungle.

Here are the full notes for Wild Rift Patch 2.2.
