League of Legends patch 11.20 notes – Bewitching skins, Amumu, Darius, Shen changes

League of Legends' 11.20 update ushers in a bunch of new Halloween-ready skins

Update – October 6, 2021: 11.20 has sailed onto live servers! Check out the League of Legends patch 11.21 notes for what’s next.

The end of the 2021 League of Legends patch cycle nears, LoL fans. League of Legends patch 11.19 – the second of the MOBA game’s two pre-Worlds patches – has left the testing grounds for (live) pastures new, and it’s now 11.20’s turn to make its debut on the PBE for a fortnight of tinkering and test-driving. So, let’s dig into it and see what’s coming.

So far, we’ve got some suitably spooky new skins coming up, just in time for Halloween. There are six new styles from League’s Bewitching alternate universe line this patch, with lucky champions Fiora, Nami, Poppy, Syndra, and Yuumi getting their own skins, while Morgana gets her Prestige Edition Bewitching skin with 11.20. You can check these out in the New Champion Skins section below to see the splashes and skins in action.

As for balance changes, this patch we’ve got gameplay updates for Amumu, Darius, Shen, Hecarim, and – well – a good ol’ handful of champs. We also know that Rengar will be hanging about for some more testing, though there’s no set release patch for his changes just yet. You can catch the latest details on all these changes in the relevant sections below.

Now, let’s delve into those changes and new skins, shall we? Here’s our rundown of the tentative League of Legends patch 11.20 notes (cheers, Surrenderat20!):

LEAGUE OF LEGENDS PATCH 11.20 – NEW CHAMPION SKINS

New Champion Skins

BEWITCHING FIORA

“Fiora is tired of Nami crashing the party every year. She’s determined that apple bobbing takes a back seat to tests of true skill – like seeing who can eat the most candy.”

Here’s the BEWITCHING FIORA splash art:

BEWITCHING NAMI

“Bobbing for apples is certainly a lot more challenging when Nami brings the tides with her to the party. The apples don’t bite back, but the pumpkin-fish do!”

Here’s the BEWITCHING NAMI splash art:

BEWITCHING POPPY

“Poppy leads the trick-or-treating charge. She’s always the first to arrive, even at particularly creepy doorsteps, undaunted by whatever frightening spectre – or delicious – treat lies on the other side.”

Here’s the BEWITCHING POPPY splash art:

BEWITCHING SYNDRA

“No celebration would be complete without the March of the Pumpkin Lanterns! Syndra conjures hundreds of great gourds from the sky, their crooked smiles delighting the children below.”

Here’s the BEWITCHING SYNDRA splash art:

BEWITCHING YUUMI

“Yuumi pierces the protective bubble surrounding her prey, readying a pounce as it plops to the ground. She ponders for a moment: if a pumpkin-cat eats a pumpkin-fish, is that too much pumpkin? Is there even such a thing as too much pumpkin?”

BEWITCHING MORGANA – PRESTIGE EDITION

100 PRESTIGE TOKENS

“Literal magic wasn’t necessary for Morgana to nab top prize in the holiday costume contest. But that didn’t stop her from casting a figurative spell on the judges with her enchanting ensemble. This is a party they won’t soon forget!”

RENGAR CHANGES

Rengar Changes

League champion Rengar has had some mini-rework changes in the pipeline for a little while, with Riot having been testing some adjustments to the assassin champ since the 11.17 patch cycle. Now, RiotPhlox has given us a bit of an update on what’s going on with the changes on Twitter, which you can catch below. Note that it looks like one change – the Ironspike Whip animation bugfix – will be headed to the live game with this (11.20) patch.


That’s all there is is for the League of Legends patch 11.20 notes right now, but keep heading back to these notes over the update’s fortnight-long testing cycle as plenty of changes and potentially other content will be headed to the PBE very soon.
