League of Legends patch 10.15 notes – Lillia, Spirit Blossom skins, Swain changes, Yone?

LoL patch 10.15 brings a new Champion, skin line, changes for Swain, and possible signs that Yone's not dead after all...

It’s been a big couple of days for League of Legends. LoL patch 10.14 has landed on the MOBA game’s live servers, the Spirit Blossom skins have been unveiled, and – of course – we’ve got a brand-new Jungler on the way to the game: Lillia. Speaking of those last two points, it’s about time to see what’s in store for LoL patch 10.15 – it’s just hit the PBE, with those shiny new skins and our incoming Champ in tow. Let’s check it all out.

Following recent hints and leaks, Riot Games has now officially revealed Lillia, the Bashful Bloom, as the next LoL Champion. “Hiding just out of sight,” her lore page says, “Lillia now helps people’s dreams be born, drawn forward by glimpses of who they could be, and by what may be trapped beneath their tangles. By helping humans realise their deepest wishes, Lillia realises her own, the bud on her head blooming as she is filled with joy.” You can check out all you need to know about the faun-like Champ, including her abilities and lore, in the Lillia section below.

She arrives alongside the brand-new – and very pretty – Spirit Blossom skin line. First in line for Spirit Blossom skins are Teemo (who also gets a prestige), Thresh, Vayne, and Yasuo.

You can get a good eyeball of these below in the Champion Skins section, along with the announcement teaser clip, which we’ve also included.

But that’s not all – there are already some balance changes on the testing servers for Swain, as well as VFX update for Ahri and Udyr, which Riot’s hoping to post to live in this patch. Nexus Blitz testing also continues this patch.

Plus, some mysterious voice files have popped up, and a new animated trailer has been posted, which are further stoking rumours that the next Champion head to LoL, Yone, is on the way.

Read on to check out the League of Legends patch 10.15 notes in full, and do keep check back as we’ll continue to update them with any and all goodies on the PBE that you’ll want to know ahead of its arrival.

Biography:

In the League client, Lillia’s bio says: “Intensely shy, the fae fawn Lillia skittishly wanders Ionia’s forests. Hiding just out of sight of mortals -whose mysterious natures have long captivated, but intimidated, her – Lillia hopes to discover why their dreams no longer reach the ancient Dreaming Tree. She now travels Ionia with a magical branch in hand, in an effort to find people’s unrealised dreams. Only then can Lillia herself bloom and help others untangle their fears to find the sparkle within. Eep!”

You can also find her full online lore page right here, as well as some Champion insights information from Riot in this blog post.

LEAGUE OF LEGENDS PATCH 10.15 NEW SKINS

Champion Skins

CLASSIC LILLIA, The Bashful Bloom

Here’s the CLASSIC LILLIA splash art:

Spirit Blossom Lillia

“A shy fawn spirit, Lillia once served as the guardian of a sacred Ionian forest– until her grove was destroyed and cast into flame. Consumed by loss, she now slumbers in the spirit realm, reliving the destruction in an unending nightmare– unaware of the timid hope still waiting to bloom…”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM LILLIA splash art:

SPIRIT BLOSSOM TEEMO

“A trickster spirit and a child of the forest, Teemo is famed across Ionia as the embodiment of nature… though his more onerous accolade is the king of pranks. A consummate gadfly and lover of all things annoying, his exploits in tricking mortals have graced the pages of Ionian history for hundreds of years.”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM TEEMO splash art:

SPIRIT BLOSSOM TEEMO Prestige Edition – 2000 event tokens

“Having abstained from pranking his ‘best friend forever’ literally once, the Spirit of Salvation has gifted Teemo with his wildest dream… becoming shiny and gold. Never one to leave anybody alone, ever, he has promised his BFF to prank them at every opportunity, every day, until they die and join him in the spirit realm. Good luck to them.”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM TEEMO PRESTIGE EDITION splash art:

SPIRIT BLOSSOM THRESH – legendary – 1820 RP

“An ancient demon of obsession, Thresh delights in tormenting the spirits of those he deems as flawed, but blossoming with potential. He haunts the spiritual afterlife as a supreme collector of souls, tempting the dead away from their path to salvation until they are trapped for eternity within their own memories.”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM THRESH splash art:

Spirit Blossom Vayne – 1350 RP

“Vayne came from a lost clan of monster hunters, annihilated to the last when the primordial demon of pain chanced upon their hidden village. Unable to let go, and doomed to her own obsessions for eternity, she hunts the creature without end, always unable to catch it.”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM VAYNE splash art:

Spirit Blossom Yasuo – 1350 RP

“Long ago, two brothers fought a bitter war across Ionia. Yasuo, the younger brother, was a warlord renowned for his roguish demeanor– until he was accused of crimes against the country and took up arms to defend himself. Both were fated to fall in their final duel… a lesson, perhaps, in pride and hubris.”

Here’s the SPIRIT BLOSSOM YASUO splash art:

 


Nexus Blitz

Riot says in a new quick thoughts blog post: “Nexus Blitz should be live next week with patch 10.15! We’re really excited to see what you all think of this updated version, both art and gameplay. It’s going to be out for two patches and our plan is to also have it return in the future again for other events. We’ll continue to work on Nexus Blitz over time, so would love your feedback on it to help with that. Our plans and when we could act on what sorts of feedback are as follows:

“Patch 10.16 – We’ll be in a position to make balance and pacing changes. If you’ve got thoughts on things like class/champ balance, snowball rates, game length, frequency of sudden death etc we’ve got a brief window where we could act on them here. We’ll also be using this time to see if we can get Mordekaiser working for Nexus Blitz, with a small chance Ivern also gets enabled.

“Next time Nexus Blitz returns – For Nexus Blitz’s next outing (exact date still to be determined) we’ll have the opportunity to act on larger feedback. Things like event design, rewards, the mechanics of the sudden death walking nexus fight etc would be feasible to change on this sort of longer timeframe.”

Riot’s also posted a design changelist for the Nexus Blitz mode on Twitter:

Plus, Nexus Blitz has now been “enabled for custom games” on the testing servers, and the new shopkeeper models have been added, too – you can get a look at the model files (via Surrenderat20) here and here.


Yone?

It looks like LoL’s next Champion is just around the corner.

As spotted by Surrenderat20, some Thresh voice files have popped up on the PBE, which are number variants of ‘First Encounter 3D Yone Skin’. Hmm. Could Yone become the next League of Legends Champion to follow Lillia? It’s far from certain, but they could support rumours that Yasuo’s (seemingly deceased) brother could be on the way to the game at some point.

Some LoL Yone art – a Spirit Blossom skin splash – also appears to have leaked online:

And if that wasn’t all, Riot games has also posted an animated short ‘The Path, An Ionian Myth’ – and fans are pretty sure it’s pointing to Yasuo’s half-brother as the next name headed to the game. Take a look below:

MisCellaneous

Surrenderat20 has also spotted two mysterious voice files which have popped up on the PBE.

  • One says: “Souls may forget they ever lived. Obsession begins when they forget they’ve died.”
  • The second says: “When all goes dark, you’ll see a fox. Follow it.”

It’s not clear what these might be just yet. Hmm.


That’s all we’ve got for League of Legends patch 10.15 right now, but do keep checking back over the next couple of weeks, as a bunch more Champion balance changes are likely to land for some tweaking and tinkering.

Also go take a good look at LoL patch 10.14 to see what’s just arriving in the live game right as of, well, right now, along with our LoL tier list which has all you need to now about the best League of Legends Champions to play in each role as of the latest patch.
