LoL Patch 7.12 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.

LoL Patch 7.12 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.

Dawnbringer Riven

Being a high-tier skin, she also has her own voice over:

Dawnbringer & Nightbringer Wards

As with most new skin releases, new wards are accompanying them. It’s a bumper offering this patch thanks to the Order vs. Chaos

There’s also a load more themed content coming via the missions system. This will be the first big deployment for that, so expect a few bugs. [email protected] have a full breakdown of how it all works and, as you might expect in 2017, it’s ludicrously complicated.

LoL Patch 7.12 Login Screen

Each patch has its own login screen with unique music. They’re always fairly excellent, and 7.12’s is no expection. It’s based around the Order & Chaos conflict, unsurprisingly, with some incredible art:

Patch 7.12 Honor System

Huge changes coming to Honor (and Runes, as we covered) this patch. There’s a full breakdown over on the Riot forums.

Blood Moon Rotating Game Mode

Looks like Blood Moon will be heading back into the rotating game mode pool soon, as it’s back on PBE for testing. Here’s Riot’s post about it.

Patch 7.12 context

Lead gameplay designer Meddler has his usual round of posts about the patch, including context on Kindred, Rek’Sai and more changes. He also mentions potential future changes to Azir, explains the removal of Rakan’s buff and Malzahar’s nerf. Some info on what’s coming next was revealed too.

That’s League of Legends patch 7.12. We’ll update as and when we get more info, or we’ll see you for patch 7.13 in the very near future. Let us know below if there’s any vital info we missed!
