The full official patch notes have now been revealed, but the majority of the information can be found below.

LoL Patch 6.10 Balance Changes

That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing.

LoL Patch 6.10 New Skins

Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers – new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.

LoL Patch 6.10 Login Screen

There’s a new login screen every patch, each with a short animation and a unique song. They’re always very good, and here’s 6.10, focused on Taliyah:

LoL Patch 6.10 Early Surrender / Remake

This PBE is testing a function for games with AFK players to be surrenderable early, thus letting everyone involved get to actually play a proper game. Here’s what we know about it so far:

  • If players don’t connect, the /remake command can be used so long as no Champions have died yet.
  • This triggers a vote, which will let players decide to start a new game with the same players, other than whoever DC’d.
  • The person who did DC, and their party, will all be given a loss.

Expect more info on this feature in future updates.

LoL Patch 6.10 Champion Mastery

In 6.10, Riot are combining the champion mastery and hextech crafting systems introduced this year to allow players who spend a lot of time perfecting one character the ability to show it off. Master levels 6 and 7 work like this:

Champion Mastery Level 6

  • Once you’re Level 5 with a champion, earn an S- or higher in a champ mastery-enabled queue, you’ll unlock a Mastery token for that champion
  • To unlock Level 6 using Hextech Crafting, combine 2 Mastery tokens plus one of the following: 500 blue essence, OR a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ.

Champion Mastery Level 7

  • Once you’re level 6, the next time you earn an S or higher in a champ mastery-enabled queue, you’ll earn a Mastery token for that specific champ
  • To unlock Level 7 using Hextech Crafting, combine 3 Mastery tokens plus one of the following: 600 blue essence, OR a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ.

This is the first part of some wider changes to try to increase the value of hextech crafting for the game’s most invested players. Some more details on that over on the official forums.

League of Legends Alpha Client

The updated version of the League of Legends client is currently in development and an alpha test will be pushed to the live servers soon for those that want to try it. Before then, they’re using the PBE as a test for the test, making sure that anything that could cause serious issues doesn’t get out into the wider world. Here’s the official thread all about that. Do check the known issues list before you report something, and make sure to sign up for the live test as well if you’re interested in checking this stuff out.

League of Legends Dominion Returns

Testing for “Definitely Not Dominion”, one of the modes that is going to be available in League’s new rotating queue, started on PBE this cycle. It bears a strikingly similarity to the disabled mode that is its namesake, with a few key changes. Essentially, they’ve made it friendlier to quicker games while maintaining what made Dominion unique over Summoner’s Rift – capturing and holding areas vs. pushing down towers. Their full run-down of the changes is over on the forums.

That’s League of Legends patch 6.10. We’ll update as and when we get more info, or we’ll see you for patch 6.11 in the very near future. Let us know below if there’s any vital info we missed!
