League of Legends patch 11.2 is gearing up to be a massive one, where Riot Games will look to introduce a plethora of balance changes.

With patch 10.23, the League of Legends devs overhauled much of the in-game itemization and introduced many unique interactions and passive skills.

The Mythic items system changed much of how the game is played and created a lot of balance disparity that Riot needs to sort out. Though patch 11.1 brought some notable tweaks, the update was nothing major, merely introducing Season 11 in the MOBA.

Patch 11.2 will bring significant updates to the game. Not only will the latest champion, Viego, The Ruined King, be introduced, but Omnivamp and Lifesteal abusers like Aatrox and Olaf will be receiving hard nerfs to their kits.

Many new items, along with some Mythic sets, will be tweaked to further balance gameplay. Several underwhelming picks like Dr Mundo, Shaco, and LeBlanc will also receive some much-needed boosts to make them relevant again.

With League of Legends patch 11.2 going live on January 21st, here is a list of all the potential changes coming to the game.
