League of Legends preseason 12 is expected to go live on November 17, with patch 11.24, the second-to-last update of the year.

In a recent tweet, the League of Legends developers provided players with insights into some of the changes they can look forward to once the update drops.

There will be significant tweaks to some Legendary and Mythic items in the new season as Riot Games will make mage and tank builds much more versatile than they used to be.

Two new dragons will also be dropping in, and the Hextech and Chemtech drakes will be adding their unique soul and map changes to the game, which will shake up League of Legends’ current game state.

Some of the Keystone runes will also be tweaked, while an updated “catch-up” Bounty System is in the works as well.

Here is a list of all the changes Riot Games have planned for League of Legends preseason 12.
