League of Legends patch 11.3 notes – ARURF, Lunar Beast, Crystal Rose, Withered Rose skins

LoL's 11.3 update brings a bunch of new champion skin and some item effect tweaks

Update – February 3, 2021: Patch 11.3 is hitting the live game! Check out the League of Legends patch 11.4 notes to see what’s coming next.

It’s that time again, League of Legends fans. The multiplayer game’s latest patch has taken a flying leap onto live servers and its follow-up has now begun rolling onto the League PBE for a fortnight of testing. League of Legends patch 11.2 has brought new champion Viego, Ruined and Shan Hai Scrolls skins, and a batch of balance changes – but now it’s time to see what patch 11.3 brings. On with the show.

League’s next patch brings three new sets of skins for a bunch of the best League of Legends champions. Those Lunar Beast skins recently previewed by Riot Games have come to the testing grounds, with new looks for Annie, Alistar, Aphelios, Darius, Fiora, and Jarvan IV. Fiora also gets a prestige version. Elsewhere, Talon and Syndra get some gothic purple Withered Rose skins (with shared splash art), while Swain and Zyra get the more opulent Crystal Rose style with new skins.

This fortnight’s offering brings a hefty bunch of champion and item balance changes, too, as you can see below – and keep checking back, as we’ll update these notes with all the tweaks that hit the PBE over the patch’s testing cycle.

Without further ado, here are the tentative League of Legends patch 11.3 notes (thanks, Surrenderat20!):

Champion Skins

LUNAR BEAST ALISTAR – 1350 RP
“The leader of Ox Clan, Alistar keeps his stubborn squad in line with his reliability and gruff approval. A bit quick to anger with some squad members’ bull-headedness, he’s determined that nothing and no one will derail this Lunar New Year festival, or Ox Clan’s plan to make it a flawless celebration.”

 Here’s the LUNAR BEAST ALISTAR splash art:
 LUNAR BEAST ANNIE – 1350 RP
“Everyone was shocked when Annie was chosen as Ox Clan’s tech operative. A precocious prodigy, Annie serves as the team’s recon strategist, making sure the parade route is clear of civilians.”

Here’s the LUNAR BEAST ANNIE splash art:

LUNAR BEAST APHELIOS – 1350 RP

“Aphelios stays quiet, preferring to worship the Bull God according to obscure “old ways” that are unfamiliar to the rest of his squad. His teammates are welcoming, if curious, but have yet to realize that Aphelios and his sister Alune are actually the Bull God’s progeny, placed among the squad to face this year’s Lunar Beast.”

YouTube Thumbnail

Here’s the LUNAR BEST APHELIOS splash art:

LUNAR BEAST DARIUS – 1350 RP

“Darius’ imposing presence and determination to lead by example cause occasional tension between him and Alistar, the actual leader of the squad. Despite how overbearing he can be, Darius is a strong and steadfast friend to his teammates and a rock for the whole Clan.”

Here’s the LUNAR BEAST DARIUS splash art:

LUNAR BEAST JARVAN IV – 1350 RP

“Jarvan IV’s stubborn refusal to join Ox Clan only relented to his father’s stubborn insistence. Though he tries his best to shirk the celebrity status that comes with the role, Jarvan comes from a long line of philanthropists, and has found himself caught up in the thrill of bringing business-like efficiency to the biggest community event of the year.”

YouTube Thumbnail

Here’s the LUNAR BEAST JARVAN IV splash art:

LUNAR BEAST FIORA – 1350 RP

“Fiora keeps mostly to herself, determined to reclaim her family’s honor from her father’s failure as a member of the last Ox Squad. She thinks the rest of the squad doesn’t take their duties seriously enough, and her determination to avoid another disastrous New Year makes her seem standoffish and cold to her teammates.”

CRYSTAL ROSE SWAIN – 1350 RP

“Swain knows how important the alliances formed at the Festival of the Crystal Rose are… and how fragile. His determination to see the event go perfectly has gained him a connection with Zyra, the Rose’s protector. With her help, he intends this to be the most successful festival ever – and that he will be celebrated as its architect.”

YouTube Thumbnail

Here’s the CRYSTAL ROSE SWAIN and CRYSTAL ROSE ZYRA shared splash art:

CRYSTAL ROSE ZYRA – 1350 RP

“Born from a cutting of the Crystal Rose, Zyra wields her piercing thorns against any who seek to harm it. For this year’s festival, she has agreed to attend in a social capacity, accompanying Swain as the Crystal Rose Festival’s dual hosts. But her respect for his vision will not distract her from springing into action at the slightest hint of danger.”

YouTube Thumbnail

WITHERED ROSE SYNDRA – 1350 RP

“Syndra has been shunned from the festival for years over her support of the disgraced Zed. Unable to bear this slight any longer, she is determined to infiltrate the event and poison the very heart of the Crystal Rose itself with her sweetly dripping ichor.”

YouTube Thumbnail

Here’s the WITHERED ROSE SYNDRA and WITHERED ROSE TALON splash art:

WITHERED ROSE TALON – 1350 RP

“After the alliance his adopted sister Katarina formed at the last festival was broken, Talon swore revenge. He intends to restore their family’s honor by exposing and shattering the entire concept of this celebration of glittering finery and sacred vows. Nothing and no one at this year’s festival will escape his wrath.”
