League of Legends’ 2021 patch rollout keeps on, well, rollin’ out. We’ve got another new update to check out that’s just landed piping hot on the PBE. League of Legends patch 11.17 has flown off to live servers, and 11.18’s now landed on the MOBA game’s testing grounds – so, let’s see what’s coming up, shall we?
As you might have seen shared on Riot’s social media channels, the stars of this patch are the new skins for League’s metal band Pentakill – as well as its newest member. Following some clues earlier this week, Viego, the Ruined King, has been revealed with his own Pentakill skin that has him shredding his gnarly signature sword like an axe – the musical kind, of course. Elsewhere, Karthus, Kayle, Mordekaiser, Olaf, Sona, and Yorick have got their own Pentakill III: Lost Chapter skins, in honour of the band’s new album of the same name, which drops in a couple weeks. We’ve also got a Hextech skin for Tristana in the mix this patch.
Now that the update’s been on the PBE a fair few days, we’ve got a pretty hearty batch of balance changes to check out, too, with Rengar, Dr. Mundo, Fizz, Lillia, and a whole raft of others seeing adjustments for 11.18. You can check out all these in the champion changes section below – and do keep checking back as more tweaks might arrive before the big day.
