As Glory in Navori expansion is coming to an end, Riot has revealed all the new variety cards in the upcoming patch, 4.5.0.

Earlier this year, Riot revealed the 2023 roadmap for Legends of Runeterra. In that post, they revealed a new type of release cycle that they would follow.

Firstly they would release an expansion. That expansion would include many game-changing mechanics, card additions, PVE changes, etc. Afterward, the expansion would be followed with various balance patches. This is so that both the competitive and the casual scene would remain stable. A couple of balance patches later, Riot would release a variety card set update. This update would include new cards and some balance updates for existing cards. And finally, after that, Riot would release the next expansion, and the cycle would continue.

During March, Riot released the first expansion of 2023, Glory in Navori. This expansion included many new contents. Most importantly, it included the release of three new champions, Samira, Sett, and Jack. Additionally, they also released the Dragonmancer skin line for LoR. It also added the long-awaited Rotation mode to the game.

As it’s been a couple of months since the release of this expansion, the developers will be releasing a new variety card set update to the game. Not to worry, as Riot has revealed all the upcoming cards in Mobalytics. Let’s look at all of these cards.
