There are many cards in Legends of Runeterra, and each have their own stats and effects to make them unique. It can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the card game genre, to learn all these effects. That’s why we’re dissecting all the keywords in a series of guides. In this one we’re taking a look at Last Breath.
While everyone obviously hopes that their units live happily ever after, it’s inevitable that some will die during the game. Last Breath ensures that their death isn’t in vain though. Units with the keyword trigger a special effect upon dying. Usually this is something in your favor, which is why many cards with a Last Breath effect have downsides like below average stats.
Dealing with a unit that has Last Breath can be difficult. You can Stun them, Recall them or Frostbite them to hold off, but those resources are limited—eventually the Last Breath will trigger. It’s best to set up and prepare for dealing with the effect. Below are a few examples of cards with the Last Breath keyword.
