A Curious Journey is the final expansion of the Beyond the Bandlewood set for Legends of Runeterra, and it is available now. This expansion brings 48 cards, including four new champions — Gnar, Yuumi, Galio, and Udyr. The expansion also brings two new keywords — Attach & Formidable.
The new champions’ kit feature:
- Gnar is Legends of Runeterra’s first champion to have the ability to transform between Level 1 and Level 2. Draw cards in his curious Level 1 form, and smash the enemy Nexus by swapping to Level 2.
- One of the most unique support champions to date, Yuumi brings a new dimension to the game by being playable as a normal unit, or Attaching to an allied unit to grant them bonus stats and abilities.
- Udyr brings the wild spirits of the Freljord to swap stances and grant him and his allies powerful buffs. The team also had an opportunity to bring a unique perspective to his design, which you can learn more about here.
- Demacia’s vigilant protector, Galio might not have a lot of power, but he grants his allies additional health and makes full use of his bulk with the new Formidable keyword, taking down large foes by using his health as power.
Meanwhile, here’s a detailed description of the new keywords:
Support your units in an entirely new way with Attach! Units with Attach can be played on the board as a normal unit, or can Attach to an allied unit, providing that unit with the attached unit’s stats and keywords, amongst other bonuses depending on the card. Using Attach counts as targeting an allied unit and triggers effects like Fated, providing even more power.
Formidable units turn bulk into brawn, and Strike using their current Health instead of their Power. Because they’ll get worn down through clashing with enemy units, be sure to keep Formidable units healthy to make the most out of them.
Finally, A Curious Journey brings the new Arcade Battle Event to Legends of Runeterra, as well as a new Event Pass with a PvE addition.
