League of Legends patch 10.8 notes - Coven skins and Senna, Aphelios, Sett nerfs

LoL patch 10.8 brings a return of the Eclipse universe, with Coven skins for LeBlanc, Morgana, and Zyra - including a Prestige

It’s League of Legends update time! March is behind us, LoL patch 10.7 is on the live servers, and League of Legends Galaxies 2020 has begun, bringing a raft of new challenges, out-of-this-world skins, and plenty of other goodies to Riot’s flagship MOBA. Alongside all this, the testing cycle continues – so let’s take a look at what’s in store for LoL patch 10.8.

First up, the Eclipse universe makes a return this update, with several new skins up for testing on the multiplayer game’s PBE. Good news if you’re a LeBlanc, Morgana, or Zyra fan – there are some gorgeous new skins from the Coven line on the way, with a Prestige Edition for Zyra. Plus, Coven Morgana has got a brand-new voiceover. You can take a good look at all of this in the Champion skins section below.

There’s now a big batch of Champion changes to get your teeth into, too, which reflect the two key points this patch will focus on, as outlined by lead LoL gameplay designer Mark Yetter on Twitter: “Rebalancing the ADC meta” and “Jungler personal power versus gank”.

Aphelios, Senna, and Sett are among those heroes getting nerfed this patch, while Urgot, Evelynn, Soraka, Ashe, Ryze, and more are in for some sweet buffs. Head to the Champion changes section below to see the tweaks for yourself.

Be sure to keep checking back during the next couple of weeks to stay up-to-date with the latest Champion balance changes being tested on the PBE as the cycle continues. In the meantime, however, read on for all the latest changes for LoL patch 10.8.


As reflected in the 2020 League of Legends patch schedule, LoL patch 10.8 will go live on Wednesday, April 15. Maintenance times have now been confirmed to start at 03:00 AM PT for NA servers, 05:00 UK for EUW servers, and 03:00 CET for EUNE servers, and will last for approximately three hours.
