Official patch notes for Update 2.7.0 – Keepers of the Past

New keyword: blade dance

Irelia, the blade dancer herself, mixes up Legends of Runeterra with the brand new keyword blade dance. Cards with Blade Dance summon a certain number of blades that immediately start a free attack against your opponent. Blade Dance can be performed with or without an attack token and does not use up the attack token. A single blade doesn’t look great on its own, but don’t underestimate the combo potential of this versatile weapon.

New challenges

Two new challenges have been added to prepare you for the new synergies from Landmarks and the keyword Blade Dance from Keepers of the Past.

Updated maps

Nasus and Thresh decks are very popular right now, exceeding our set win rate (55%) and play rate (15%) limits. We’re making minor changes to the Shadow Isles aspects of the deck that keep causing problems in the metagame. Nasus is a lynchpin in this deck, but we don’t want to shake Shurima too much for now. We’re keeping a close eye on Nasus so we can consider possible changes to him if he continues to prove too powerful.

Region Reward Updates

Shurima (next to Targon and Ionia) just got a bit bigger.

  • Shurima, Targon and Ionia region rewards have been increased by 4 tiers for the release of their new champions.


Champions, spells, and companions from Keeper of the Past have been added to expeditions.


  • If several mushrooms are pulled at the same time, they now do the added damage and no longer X times 1 damage, where X = the number of mushrooms pulled at the same time.
  • Cards created by Parallel Timeline now incorporate prismatic effects.
  • The effects of mobilizing and starting a round have been improved.
  • As of patch 2.9.0 (June 2nd), cross-split friendly matches are no longer supported. LoR continues to grow and our technology is slowly but surely starting to reach its limits. That’s in large part due to the cross-splinter friendlies that are currently draining resources we need for some of the most exciting features we’ve planned for LoR. We’ll post more information about our social features in LoR ​​at a later date, but we wanted to let our players and community organizations using this feature know now.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a graphical issue where the first win of the day would still show sun discs as rewards.
  • The player profile screen has been adjusted and is now properly displayed on mobile devices.
  • Fixed an issue where mushrooms were not counted for certain damage effects on the Nexus in certain situations.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from asking, prophesying, or choosing between cards on mobile devices to see which cards are related.
  • Katarina (Level 2) now correctly uses her own Mobilize visual effect.
  • Units marked by Kindred now display text when hovering over them.
  • Heimerdinger’s turret cost reduction now properly ends after the round they were created.
  • Khahiri, the disciple no longer mistakenly regards lurking shadows as a prophecy.
  • If the costs of “Calculated Creations” have been changed, the changed costs will no longer be displayed on the cards offered for selection.
  • Marked Dice’s visual effect now plays as intended when played.
  • As part of our efforts to ensure consistent text, several text improvements have been made to the game.
