LoL 12.11 Patch Notes: Durability Update, Bel’Veth Release

After shaking the game with massive changes in LoL 12.11 Patch Notes, Riot is trying to balance things out with the new patch.


The 12.10 patch colloquially referred to as the ‘Durability Update’ has now been out for almost two weeks. Player reception to it is mostly positive, as players have been enjoying drawn-out team fights, safer early laning and an overall less damage-heavy game.

Still, as always tend to happen with sweeping changes, some champions have risen above the rest because they benefitted from these changes more compared to others. Champions like Taliyah and Kayle, which were already quite good before 12.10, were pretty overwhelming to face, and they got nerfed during the week in the 12.10b hotfix patch.

While there is more champion nerfs in 12.11, the patch is mostly focused on system adjustments. Multiple items are buffed or nerfed as well as a tower damage nerf which the community online isn’t very happy about.

What is changing in patch 12.11 and what to expect?

Before taking an overall look at what is different, remember that these changes were announced on Twitter by Matt ‘Phroxzon’ Leung-Harrison and they aren’t final till the official Patch Notes are out.

The first and most controversial change among players is the tower damage nerfs. Players have been complaining about the ease of tower dives and the ineffectiveness of being under your tower for the last couple of seasons. During 12.10, you could’ve traded one for one if you dove, and the change back to lesser damage from towers didn’t make the community happy.

Another focus was the mythic items across classes. Riot expressed that they think assassins and tanks were left behind a little during 12.10, so they are seeing some buffs to their items. While assassins are getting a little bit more lethality, tanks will have more access to ability haste, resistance and health. It will be interesting to see what these changes bring as some of the assassins like Qiyana and Talon were already performing well. Maybe be ready to see them in most of your games.

There are also multiple adjustments to multiple bruiser and mage items. Most notably Liandries were the premier AP item to go during 12.10 even for mages like Vel’Koz and Xerath. Additionally, Riot is finally nerfing the combo of Death Dance and Maw of Malmortius which means bruisers will not be immune to magic damage. These changes may mean some control mages can once again be viable in mid-lane.

When it comes to champions themselves, 32 of them are getting either a nerf or a buff. While champions like Swain, Taliyah and Rengar who were dominating the Rift are getting nerfs, the ones like Gragas, Aphelios and an almost 40% win rate Ryze are finally getting some well-deserved buffs. There is also another mini rework for Zeri as the champ fell from people’s graces after Riot gutted her bruiser build.

Bel’Veth is released in 12.11

With two huge patches in 12.10 and 12.11, people might forget that a new champion release is upon us.

Bel’Veth, the Void Empress, is a new jungler from the Void and she is the champion number 160 in League of Legends. She is a mobile skirmisher with a unique kit that promises power to its players. If you’d like to learn more about Bel’Veth before trying her on the Rift, you can read more about it here.
