What players need to do to battle their Nemesis champion in Wild Rift

Wild Rift has introduced a new Nemesis Duel to the mobile version of Summoners Rift. A Nemesis Duel is an in-game quest that happens if two specific champions are on opposing teams.

The first example of a Nemesis Duel is Rengar and Kha’Zix. The giant feline hunter, known for hunting down the biggest of prey in the game’s lore, battles against his biggest challenge, The Voidrever. The two champions duke it out when specific in-game circumstances are met and gain buffs for defeating their enemy.

Recently, Wild Rift also introduced another Nemesis Duel: Nasus vs. Renekton. The two Shurima brothers are rivals and fight in the same way as Rengar and Kha’Zix.

Criteria to start a Nemesis Duel in Wild Rift

To start a Nemesis Duel, the two champions must first be at a high level and on opposing teams. Then, they must not take damage for a short amount of time and should be somewhat close together on the map. If all the criteria is met, the two players piloting the champions will see a graphic on their screen telling them to fight.

Winning a Nemesis Duel in Wild Rift is pretty straightforward. A player does not even have to kill the opposing player themselves. They only need to damage the enemy within three seconds of their demise, so teams can help out in the rivalry fight. The reward for winning the duel varies for each champion.

Rengar and Renekton have similar buffs. Both gain max Ferocity and Fury during their ultimates, making their spells hit that much harder. Kha’Zix gains another evolution point, which means he can evolve four of his abilities instead of three. Lastly, Nasus’ Q, Siphoning Strike, becomes an area-of-effect ability. The spell hits its target but also sends damage out in a small circle around the target.
