Here we are, League of Legends fans – the tenth giant patch of 2020. LoL patch 10.9 is live, with FPX Worlds 2019 skins, buffs for Lissandra, Kayn, and Cho’Gath, and nerfs for Karthus, Nami, and Wukong. The testing cycle continues as we head towards May, and the next big ol’ batch o’ changes has landed on the MOBA game’s PBE. Let’s head to the notes and get a look at what’s in store for LoL patch 10.10.
Late last week Riot showed off some new skins for “underserved” Champs it had on the way, introducing players to Astronaut Bard and Pool Party Taliyah – but also giving us a sneak peek at a Pulsefire skin for Pantheon, too. Well, Pantheon mains can rejoice as it won’t be long before you can get your hands on the skin – Pulsefire Pantheon has landed on the PBE. Pulsefire 2020 is League of Legends’ next big 2020 event!
Joining Pantheon in the Pulsefire parallel universe this patch is Ekko, Fiora, and Lucian (who also gets a Prestige skin). You can take a good look at these below ahead of their arrival in a couple of weeks’ time.
As for patch ten balance changes, a whole bunch of nerfs, buffs, and changes have now hit the PBE, which you see in full below. And there are more tweaks to come, it seems, according to a changelist posted by lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter (which we’ve also included for you below).
