Riot will release a new mythic support item, Echoes of Helia, in the upcoming mid-season update of League of Legends.
We receive a preseason in League of Legends at the start of every year. In that preseason, Riot does massive overhauls and changes to the game. Moreover, they also add experimental changes to the game as well.
But besides preseason, there is also the mid-season update. During the mid-season update, Riot massively changes the game, similar to preseason. Usually, these changes were supposed to happen during the preseason, or these changes were later pitched as the game changed as the meta developed during the early season.
We received the durability rework as the mid-season update in the last season. During that time, Riot buffed every champion’s health while adjusting the rest of the stats. The reason for that update was that during that time, the biggest complaint was that every champion was dealing a lot of damage. Overall, the update was successful and solved a lot of glaring issues.
Last year, the lead designer for the balance team, RiotPhroxzon, mentioned that in season 13, we wouldn’t be receiving a significant mid-season change similar to the durability update. However, it looks like the plans have changed.
This week, Riot announced that they would be changing almost every item in the game. Not only that, but they would also be adding some new items. One of the new items they are adding is the support mythic Echoes of Helia. Additionally, this item is replacing Imperial Mandate, and the Mandate will be a legendary item after this update.
