The first League of Legends patch of the year is around the corner, and Riot Games has outlined some crucial changes.

With patch 11.1, League of Legends officially heads into Season 11, and the new version update is indeed going to be a big one.

League of Legends preseason patch 10.23 sought to do away with much of how items and itemization worked in the game. Apart from the new mythic item system, the devs have also added new core passives like Omnivamp, while allowing easier access to items with Grievous Wounds.

In a recent tweet, League of Legends developer Mark Yetter outlined some probable changes that patch 11.1 would bring along.

Gnar’s Mega form will be receiving some much-needed love this time around. Ryze, Qiyana, Xayah, and Karma will also be receiving buffs in League of Legends.

Pantheon, on the other hand, will receive the nerf hammer, and Runaan’s Hurricane will get an overhaul in terms of stats and build path in League of Legends.


Probable changes in League of Legends patch 11.1

Here is a list of some of the probable League of Legends changes that Yetter outlines.
