FNC vs G2. Tupac vs Biggie. Teemo vs the world. Some showdowns are just meant to be. But how do you settle a personal vendetta in a 5v5 arena?
By besting your arch enemy in a Nemesis Duel, of course!
What's Nemesis Duel?
Nemesis Duel is a special mechanic that sometimes activates when two champions with long-standing grudges face each other in Wild Rift. It's an opportunity for players to earn a substantial in-game bonus by settling the out-of-game score, so get ready for the fight of your life!
Who can get into a Nemesis Duel?
Runeterra's most fearsome hunters, Rengar and Kha'Zix face off to determine who is predator and who is prey!
Ascended brothers of Shurima, Nasus and Renekton battle to settle a feud born of darkness and deceit!
How does it start?
Just having the two related champions on opposite teams in a game does not guarantee a Nemesis Duel will occur. We want this feature to remain a fun surprise rather than a routine occurrence, so here are other factors to consider when you're on the prowl for a lethal confrontation:
- Both champions are alive and fairly high level
- Neither have taken or dealt damage for a short time
- The two champions are at least a short distance apart
Once all the requirements are achieved, lucky players will see an in-game display informing them that it's on!
How does it end?
Victory goes to whichever champion deals damage to the other within three seconds of the defeated champion's death. You don't need to score the kill, but you must have directly contributed! And remember—the victor of the Nemesis Duel gets a bonus that lasts until the end of the game, so make your climactic battle count!
I won! What do I get?
Rengar vs Kha'Zix - The Hunt Is On
If Rengar proves he's king of the jungle, he'll automatically gain Ferocity during his ultimate—Thrill of the Hunt.
If Kha'Zix emerges as the apex predator, he unlocks an extra evolution point.
Nasus vs Renekton - Bad Blood
If Nasus quells his brother's feverish violence once and for all, his Siphoning Strike will hit all enemies within a certain radius of the attack.
If Renekton slakes his ill-founded thirst for vengeance, he will remain at full Fury for the duration of his ultimate, Dominus.
Ornn vs Volibear - Ancient Rivalry
If Ornn forges his victory on the mountain top, his Searing Charge will not only knock up enemies when it hits a wall or terrain—it will slow them and grant Ornn a shield as well.
If Volibear sunders the land in triumph, his Stormbringer will knock up enemies caught near the center of the ability.
