League of Legends patch 11.10 notes - Arcana skins, jungle changes, Kog’Maw update

League of Legends' 11.10 update brings a dazzling new set of mystical Arcana champion skins

May 12, 2021 – 11.10 is headed to live! Check out our League of Legends patch 11.11 notes to see what’s coming next.

Another Wednesday, another League of Legends patch full of new champion skins, balance changes, and other goodies for Riot Games’ flagship MOBA game. League of Legends patch 11.9 has rolled out to live, ushering in those new DWG and Conqueror skins and a whole bunch of champion changes – so, now it’s time to see what’s headed League’s way with update 11.10.

First up, we’ve got some new Arcana skins on the way this patch, which you might have seen a glimpse of on League’s social media channels. Four lucky champs are getting Arcana styles for 11.10 – Camille, Lucian, Tahm Kench, and Xerath – so good news if you’re a main for any of these. They’re pretty striking, with rich gold, red, and gold tones across the board, and a mystical aesthetic that gives the champions a whole new vibe. You can check these out in the champion skins section in the notes below.

As for balance changes, there are now tweaks for champions like Bard, Darius, Galio, Jinx, Kennen, Lux, Kayle, Yuumi, Tal- well, a whole bunch – on the testing grounds. But, we may see these change, and perhaps even more arrive, while this patch’s testing is up, so keep checking back on these notes.

We’ve also got some updates for “a handful of champions” this patch, giving their animations a dash of new tech, which you can see in the miscellaneous section below, as well as an update for “everyone’s favourite void puppy, Kog’Maw” coming up in 11.10. You can also find out about this in the relevant section below.

Now, without further ado, here are the tentative League of Legends patch 11.10 notes based on what’s up for testing on the PBE right now (cheers, Surrenderat20!):

New Champion Skins


“Poised precariously above the city, on the edge of High Arcana, Camille’s power comes from surprise and defying expectations. Her patterns seem confusing and alarming– even perilous– to those who cross her path, but they always resolve to her benefit. When burdened on the brink, Camille is at her strongest, but no one truly knows what she plans to use all that strength for…”

“”Lucian believes in balance: that no one Archetype should have excessive influence on the world. With one gun amplifying patterns and the other cancelling them out, Lucian maintains the world’s fragile order within the new power vacuum– even as the likes of Tahm Kench move to fill it”

“The epitome of power and opulence, Tahm Kench’s power drips from his tongue. Its ornate patterns captivate and cajole his listeners. He leverages those he rules, staking his power to ensure the patterns always shift in his favour – “correcting” his subjects who have gone astray.”

“”Ensnared by his own desires, Xerath leads citizens of Low Arcana to act on their basest urges. The more they are entranced by the forbidden, the more his power grows. But while Xerath believes their temptation will lead to his deliverance, he does not realize that the stronger he becomes, the more tightly his chains bind him”
