League of Legends patch 10.25 notes – New Champion Rell, Battle Queen skins, Anivia overhaul

League of Legends' final patch of 2020 brings a brand-new Champion, skin line, and a big overhaul for Anivia

Update – December 9, 2020: League of Legends patch 10.25 is heading onto live servers! Check out the League of Legends patch 11.1 notes at that link to see what’s on the way with the first patch of 2021 in January.

Here we are at the end of 2020, League of Legends fans. LoL patch 10.24 is rolling out onto the multiplayer game’s live servers, and its follow-up – the last update of the year – has stampeded onto the testing grounds, with brand-new “tanky support” Champion Rell in tow.

As just revealed by Riot Games, new League of Legends Champion Rell, The Iron Maiden, is a hardy battler from Noxus with an exceptionally rare gift – the power of ferromancy, the ability to magically manipulate metals. Armed with an enormous gold-hued lance and a horse-like (sort of) metal mount, Rell has stormed onto the PBE for a fortnight of testing, along with her pretty intriguing abilities – which include a W in two parts.

As if that wasn’t enough, it turns out those teasers Riot was posting earlier this week were indeed pointing to a brand-new royalty-themed skin line. Diana, Janna, Katarina, and Qiyana get Battle Queen skins this patch, with the colour themes tying into those crests the studio shared on social media this past week. Plus, Diana gets a Prestige Edition – sweet!

Alongside these, a batch of new Elderwood skins also arrive in the coming update, with Azir, Ivern, Ornn, Rakan, and Xayah being the lucky Champs. Plus, Nexus Blitz is back! And there’s a bit of an Anivia overhaul this update.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the tentative League of Legends patch 10.25 notes to get an idea of what’s in store for the final content drop of the year. As ever, bear in mind these changes are up for testing, so likely won’t reflect the finalised set of changes on the way just yet. Check out what you need to know right here (thanks Surrenderat20!):

RELL SKINS, LORE, AND VO

Here’s Rell’s in-game biography:

“The product of brutal experimentation at the hands of the Black Rose, Rell is a defiant, living weapon determined to topple Noxus. Her childhood was one of misery and horror, enduring unspeakable procedures to perfect and weaponise her magical control over metal… until she staged a violent escape, killing many of her captors in the process. Now branded as a criminal, Rell attacks Noxian soldiers on sight as she searches for survivors of her old ‘academy,’ defending the meek while delivering violent death to her former overseers.”

Rell’s release skin is BATTLE QUEEN RELL!

“A young woman from the magic-starved Queendom of Calamity, volunteered for the coronation by a shadowy cabal of aristocrats after a series of magical experiments. Having now won the crown and the power of her crest, Rell has discovered her powers were stolen from the people of her country, and she has vowed revenge on her puppeteers.”

Riot has posted the following on Reddit:

PBE Bugs and Feedback Thread: Nexus Blitz from r/LeaguePBE


LEAGUE OF LEGENDS PATCH 10.25 – MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

  • It’s worth noting that Nautilus won’t be getting a shiny new skin this year, after all. QA lead on skins Katey ‘Khaos’ Anthony has posted: “Apologies – we realise we teased a Nautilus skin coming in 2020, but unfortunately, that is no longer the case, and he won’t be receiving a skin this year. He’s still eligible for a skin, though!”. Lead personalisation producer for League of Legends Jonathan ‘Bellissimoh’ Belliss has added on Reddit: “Nautilus’ next release will be in the second patch of 2021”.

Well, that’s one way to end the year with a bang. That’s all we’ve got in the way of the tentative League of Legends patch 10.25 notes for now, but be sure to keep checking back on this page over next couple of weeks as we’ll keep it updated it to reflect what’s happening on the PBE and headed to the live game.
