Wild Rift Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Early Game: 

In Wild Rift, Vi’s early game is strong against other junglers like Mundo, Amumu, Yi, and Xin Zhao. So, if you are matched against these champions, then try to invade their buffs with your teammates. 

In the early game, try to farm as fast as possible and try to get one item upgrade before the first dragon fight. Vi has a strong ganking potential with his ultimate so always look for ganking opportunities. If you cannot find any good ganking potential, then do full clear of your jungle. 

Vi’s Recommended Jungle Path for Early Game (Recommended):

  1. Red Buff
  2. Raptors
  3. Wolves
  4. Blue Buff
  5. Scuttler

You can also start from your Blue side to counter jungle enemy jungler.

Mid Game:

Mid Game is when Vi becomes an assassin and can take down enemies squishy target with ease. Vi’s team fight is not very strong compared to other junglers like Olaf, Amumu, Xin Zhao, and Dr. Mundo. So, always look for solo picks (Squishy target or ADC) from the enemy team and eliminate them with your team.

Late Game:

In the Late Game, Vi can one-shot enemy squishy target. In Wild Rift, Vi’s late Game is not very strong. So, in the Late Game, try to eliminate enemies, damage dealers with your team. In the late game, always try to lock enemies AD Carry with your ultimate.
