“At its core, Practice Tool is a place where you can train your mechanics. It’s the training gym where you can go to brush up on your Lvl1 last hitting, that early jungle gank route or your Riven mechanics. A simple, straightforward, single-player environment that lets you test out things,” the company stated.
There are loads of features available in the new practice mode including player commands, jungle commands and game commands, listed below.
