BEST PERFORMANCE SETTINGS FOR WILD RIFT GUIDE
League of Legends Wild Rift is a game where even the smallest things matter. You may not know, but pro players and high-ranking players execute these specific settings as a staple to have the best gameplay. Like every other MOBAs, Wild Rift is all about maximizing your movement settings, action, and repositioning as quickly as possible.
You will also need to make sure that there are no actions that are not intended to happen on your games. After reading this Wild Rift Best Settings Guide, your gameplay will supposedly be efficient and smoother after changing to these suggested settings.
Portrait Lock – On
Display Portrait lock is very helpful in easily selecting targets. With Fixed Display, activated, the order of the champions that will appear on the target selection will not change on the entire duration of your game compared to Priority Display which can be confusing since it changes the sequence that appears on the target selection based on the order that champions appear on your screen.
The following post will be a guide to “wild rift” on the server “pve”. This is NSFW and should only be used by players aged 18+. It contains language that NSFW viewers may find offensive or not safe for work. It also contains information that some groups may find triggering, thus having some knowledge of it beforehand would be advised. If you are offended by words such as these do not read this article.
Force Attack Follow – Off
This feature is unnecessary since most of the time, you will be using the attack button drag on most of your games to select what target you will be following.
Wild Rift is a mode typically used to fight more than one enemy at a time within a combat area without the use of any abilities that provide invulnerability or crowd control (cc) such as tremor sense, freeze ray etc. A primary goal in wild rift is survival and dealing as much damage as possible on each monster before they are killed by an incoming death beam. This game mode is also commonly referred to as “Hyper Mode”.
Target Priority – Low Health (absolute)
This specific part of the settings can be game-changing. You see, low health (absolute) bases its target selection on the target’s total health itself, and low health (%) bases its target selection on the target’s remaining health percentage.
Let us say you are using the low health (%) setting and there are 2 targets. One is Garen who has a total of 2500 health, and Miss Fortune who has a total of 1800 health. In a teamfight, both are damaged and have total health of 500.
Despite Miss Fortune being the more ideal target, your champion keeps on attacking Garen, why? Because Garen’s health is of lower percentage compared to Miss Fortune. 500 is only 20% of Garen’s max health, and 500 is 28% of Miss Fortune’s max health. Low health (absolute) will eventually make you attack Miss Fortune since Garen will regenerate his health faster.
Dash in Move Direction – Off
Turning this feature off will make significant improvements if you use champions who has long dashes like Lee Sin or Tryndamere, by turning it off your champion will just end up on top of the target just by pressing the ability so it is easier and faster than manually aiming it. Do not turn it on!
You can adjust all of your settings on the main menu, which means no need to exit out of the game- good news if you die off quickly like me. “Gameplay” section at top : Movement: Dash in Move Direction – On (left side) Kicking: Assisted Kick – On (right side) Stamina: Ki Control – Off (middle side; this makes it so that if you press forward and attack.
Move Stick Type – Default Settings
Default is fine as it is. Though if you prefer playing with follow or locked and find it more comfortable and optimal, it is totally fine as well.
Default will feel almost exactly like Melee did, where you cannot charge perfect pivot tilts. This gives more utility to the forward smash angle on your C-Stick which makes it easier to get around shielding opponents. You can still get perfect pivot up smashes by charging it behind you though, so there are only really 3 timings that are different between.
The best way to show how this all works is with a video. There’s two parts in the video; one when the stick type is set to “None” and another when it’s set to “Default”. Each have their own advantages/disadvantages, but I heavily recommend you try both for yourself!
Action Cancel Method – Default Settings
It really does not matter that much unless you use the alternative action cancel method.
As the game’s life span starts to dwindle down, it time to start thinking about what settings are optimal. Blizzard has already announced that they will provide official servers for the game, henceforth dubbed “legacy” servers, but not until summer of next year (2016).
Personally, we hate chatting in Wild Rift. It takes so much time and most of the time, you only do it when you are dead, also to mention the fact that most of the messages on the chat boxes are just teammates flaming and complaining the team for making mistakes, etc.
Good thing, there is a feature called quick chatwhich enables you to send messages to your team with a single press of a button without typing. However, since you can only choose up to 8 messages, you must make sure to only input ones that are optimal to the role you are playing and what you think is the most useful in the game.
For example, if you like playing tanks like Malphite and Alistar, you would not want to send a message like “Please protect me!” to your team, right? You should be the one protecting them, not the other way around! Therefore, it should be messages like “Let me initiate!” or “Protect the carry!” that should be input instead.
IS 60 FPS WORTH IT?
Don’t get us wrong, the difference between 60 FPS and 30 FPS is most definitely noticeable and if you want to play for pure competitive pleasure, it’s definitely worth switching on. On some devices we tested, the battery drain you submit your phone to ramps up significantly higher to the point that you’d likely not want to use it on the road but rather chilling on the couch plugged into the wall, charging.
At the same time, the feeling of playing 60 FPS is very crisp for any game, and it’ll be soon that games and hardware support even higher framerates. However, Wild Rift is a game that only makes moderate use of the increased frame rate in comparison to a genre like First Person Shooters. Will it help your mechanical executions a little bit? Yes. Is that all Wild Rift is about?
We recommend giving it a try and seeing how it runs on your device and judge for yourself.
Tips to Targeting when taking objectives?
A personal tip I can give is to use the attack button drag when fighting for objectives specifically Dragon and Baron Nashor—you may be doing this in your games but not familiar with its name. But if you do not use this mechanic then you are missing something huge, you can find it in the Training – Tutorials – Target Lock section of the game.
The reason behind this is on Dragon/Baron fights, there are a lot of targets to choose from. There are a lot of things going on and your champion may target and attack different targets in the process. At this point, the smart target selection of the game focuses only on champions and not the objectives themselves. Using the attack button drag mechanic will help you lock in and secure the said objectives.
However, when attempting to just go for a steal and going into a Dragon/Baron pit late, using the attack button drag mechanic is not necessary since Smite prioritizes monsters before champions. Enter the area, and just smite as soon as it hits the health threshold.
Give your PC the best chance to handle Wild Rifts with these settings. The latest Diablo III patch made a number of changes and updates that we’ve been eagerly awaiting, but one in particular has us drooling for more: wild rifts!
These events will randomly spawn throughout Sanctuary (much like Nephalem Trials) at any time you play. They can be either small or large-scale, depending on how many players are around when they happen.
That said, if you want your computer to have the best possible experience when fighting against them, make sure it meets our system requirements below and then follow these steps for optimal performance during combat.
