Looking for what's coming in the newest League of Legends patch? Then you've come to the right place! We have all the details around League of Legends Patch 12.18, including patch notes, the release date, new skins and more!

In the past few patches, we've seen the reworked Udyr become a very popular jungle pick, as have a few other champions, so Riot has decided to tune some champs. They also, as with most patches, have a host of new skins that we're going to show off here as well!

While you're here, if you're interested in more Riot games goodness, check out what's going on for the newest Wild Rift patch. Also you might be interested in the new Teamfight Tactics patch for set 7.5.

When does League of Legends patch 12.18 release?

While there hasn't been a specific date announced by Riot for this patch, we do know when it should be out. According to the Patch Release schedule, League of Legends Patch 12.18 should release on September 21 2022.

Servers should begin patching at 3 AM PST, and last around three hours. Once 6 AM PST rolls around, players should patch their clients. Once this happens, players will have access to the new content.

League of Legends 12.18 patch notes

As for the actual patch notes for the new patch, we don't have the exact details around it yet. Those won't drop until a few days before the patch actually goes live. But we do have some general information about changes. This is the final patch before the World Championships, so the devs don't want to make any massive changes.

Thanks to Riot Phroxzon over on Twitter, we know which champions are going to be changed.

Here are the champs that are getting changed.


  • Ashe
  • Thresh
  • Lee Sin
  • Nasus


  • Miss Fortune
  • Kalista
  • Hecarim
  • Kayn (Rhaast)
  • Lulu
  • Nocturne


  • Maokai (Role adjustments)
  • Udyr (Build adjustments)

League of Legends patch 12.18 skins

As for the skins that we have a solid line up of skins being introduced that are quite fitting for the time of year. These skins are all spooky themed, which makes sense. Here's the champs getting new skins for Fright Night.

  • Nautilus
  • Renata Glasc
  • Annie
  • Sylas
  • Draven
  • Urgot
  • Trundle

On top of that we are also going to be getting the Worlds 2022 skin, which is for Azir. We typically see these skins every year, and they also have the same kind of color scheme. Either way, this skin looks great. We don't have a price for this yet, but we'd expect it to cost 1350 RP.

And that's all that we have for you! Hopefully this patch doesn't change too much for Worlds, but it should still be a fun worlds to watch nonetheless.
