The update cycle for League of Legends patch 11.10 has begun — here’s all the early LoL notes & changes coming in the May 12 update, including a string of nerfs for some “out of control” champs, four new “Arcana” skins, Phase Rush nerfs, and plenty more.
- Riot rushing out Smite rework, jungle XP changes
- Phase Rush rune cops nerfs to keep Hecarim, Udyr in check
- Pre-Ascended Xerath revealed in new “Arcana” skin line
Now that the Mid-Season Invitational is finally getting underway, Riot’s balance team are turning their attention back to the LoL solo queue experience.
This week’s patch will be on the “lighter side” in regards to champion changes, lead developer Mark ‘Scruffy’ Yetter revealed. Instead, they’ll be focusing on “jungle accessibility changes” in a bid to get more people queueing up for the role. Several popular champs, like Lux and Kayle, have been locked in for buffs.
Phase Rush is also set to cop more new nerfs.
Finally, Riot has given LoL players a glimpse of pre-Ascended sorcerer Xerath in a new “Arcana” skin line, which will be released during the next update.
Here’s all the details on League of Legends patch 11.10, coming next week.

What’s coming in League of Legends patch 11.10?
Lux, Kayle lead buffs, Katarina nerfed again
Popular champions like Lux have made it to the buff lists this cycle.
The Demacian spellcaster in particular is one of the most popular characters in League of Legends, and was played 28,562 times in high ELO despite a lower win rate. In a similar vein, Irelia was slated to get buffs despite a hefty 5.81% presence in ranked, but was “dropped” early in the cycle.
Dexerto expects Kennen, Kayle, Zyra, and Yuumi to also be handed buffs.
On the flip side, Riot has tipped Galio, Talon, Jinx, Katarina, Thresh, Bard, and new jungle terror Darius for 11.10 nerfs. They will be joined in the same column by four items; Riftmaker, Abyssal Mask, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, and Goredrinker.
