The first patch of the League of Legends 2022 season has hit the PBE. League of Legends patch 11.24 has headed to live servers to make its debut on the Rift and, following a bunch of teases from Riot Games on social media, the latest batch of new content has begun trickling onto the testing grounds ready for patch 12.1’s arrival in the live game soon. Let’s take a look.
First up, we’ve got some new Elderwood skins on the way, this time for lucky champions Gnar and Rek’Sai. Riot also revealed a new skin for Ekko called Firelight Ekko, which is inspired by his style in the tremendously successful LoL spin-off Netflix show Arcane. However, this now won’t be shipping with 12.1 as “an unfortunate mistake on [the studio’s] part due to a miscommunication internally” means that the skin wasn’t given new special effects, which the team now wants to make sure it adds. So, the skin has been taken off the PBE for now and will return in a few patches’ time.
As is is very often the case when a patch has only just hit the PBE, we don’t have many balance changes to check out just yet. However, there are some pretty big changes coming to champion Janna, which you can see below – and you can probably expect a batch of wider changes soon.
