The new constellation system expansion in Legends of Runeterra will bring new champions, increase the maximum number of stars for a champion, and more.

Legends of Runeterra is already regarded as one of the most complex collectible card games out there. Enriched stories, regular updates, variety in game modes, and nuanced mechanics make the game stand out from its competition.

Despite not being known for its beginner-friendliness, Riot Games has no intentions to dial down its gameplay complexity. Instead, they keep pushing the boundary with each major update. This time they are bringing a major update to Path of Champions, the single-player rogue-like game mode.

Before getting into the details, it’s worth talking about the present state of the game. Currently, the star limit you can reach with your champion gets maxed out at 3 upgrades. Champion fragments, obtained through completing campaigns and world adventures or completing chapter quests, are needed to get stars.

These stars are very significant due to the power they provide to the champions. The more the stars, the more powerful the abilities of a champion become. They are essential to tackle the increased difficulties in some campaigns.

In the Constellations system update, Riot Games is to bring massive changes to the PvE game mode, Path of Champions. In this article, I will debrief you on the changes coming.

So, the upcoming constellation system will augment the star number cap for champions from 3 to 6. This is a massive change because the incremental boost in power from 1 star to the next is huge in terms of the card’s impact on the gameplay.

Not to mention, this also increases the scope for grinding as you will need to complete more campaigns and adventures to get those champion fragments. The increased star power will help the players deal with adventures in Freljord.

However, this change is not limited to the existing champions. Riot will be introducing more champions to the Path of Champions mode, including Aatrox. Norra, an original LoR champion, will also be coming along with some portal gameplay.

Hence, the game’s campaign will feel more expansive now. Added that with the announcement of more story content, LoR will be dense with tons of new things to try out for the PvE enjoyers.
