League of Legends patch 10.20 notes – Dragonmancer line, Legendary Lee Sin skin

League of Legends patch 10.20 brings those shiny new dragon-themed skin to the game

We’re starting to nudge towards the end of the League of Legends 2020 patch schedule, League fans. There’s been a raft of new Champions, skins, and other updates this year so far, and the fun just continues. LoL patch 10.19 has flown the PBE nest and landed on the MOBA game’s live servers, bringing Samira, PsyOps goodies, and a batch of balance changes for Worlds 2020. Now, it’s patch 10.20’s turn – read on to see what’s in store next.

First up are those dazzling new League of Legends Dragonmancer skins, which Riot Games gave an early glimpse at on its Twitter channels earlier this week. Along with the new Legendary Lee Sin skin – Storm Dragon Lee Sin – Ashe, Brand, Aurelion Sol, and Sett are also in for some snazzy new dragon-themed skins. The latter juggernaut Champ even gets a Prestige Edition. You can take a good peek at the splash art and some in-game footage of these below.

In the way of patch 10.20 balance changes, as if often the case when an update first hits the testing servers, there aren’t any to check out just yet.

However, we can expect a batch to arrive very soon – likely in the coming days – so be sure to keep heading back to these notes. We’ll post everything you need to know right here in the Champion Changes section below.

That’s it from us for now – read on for the League of Legends patch 10.20 notes below:
