Ashen Knight Pantheon from League of Legends

In the last League of Legends patch, we saw the release of Bel'Veth. Now, in League of Legends 12.12, we will be seeing the nerf of her stats. As is often the case with post-champion release patches, it's time for the latest champion's damage to be taken down a notch. Patch 12.12 has some really interesting things coming, so be sure to continue reading on for more information on what to expect from it.

As with most new patches, we will be seeing some new skin releases too, and Riot is making some really interesting changes for the healers out there now that Grievous Wounds has had some updates.

When patching begins, the queues and game will be taken down for a couple of hours and will be unplayable for roughly three hours.

Essence Emporium will be back from June 28 to July 12. You'll be able to buy chromas, ward skins, emotes, icons, and much more for Blue Essence. This includes the much-awaited URFWick skin!

After this run of the essence emporium, it is going into hiatus to make it more streamlined and efficient for users. To make up for the hiatus, they're turning the three gemstone bundles into missions so that players will be able to play free-to-play missions that will allow them to get a total of 30 Mythic Essence.

Whilst there are the overall patch notes above, there are also some changes being made to healers. It seems that due to grievous wounds being nerfed two patches ago, healing just wasn't feeling right according to the developers. Therefore, they're working on fixing healing so that it doesn't feel so lacklustre in battles anymore.

This means that Soraka and Yuumi specifically are getting adjustments, with nerfs to champions like Dr. Mundo and Viego putting them in their place.

What New Skins Are Being Released? - LoL 12.12 New Skins

For the more casual players out there who don't necessarily need to know the minute differences in champion performance this time around, the new LoL 12.12 skins below might just help you stay interested for another month.

Ashen Knight Pantheon

Whether he's used on the top, support, or mid lane, Pantheon's new Ashen Knight skin will certainly strike fear into his enemies. You wouldn't want this ghastly apparition dropping on you like a cannonball, that's for sure.

The Ashen Knight Pantheon skin arrives on June 23 2022. Both a chroma pack and an Emberwoken version will also be available.

Snow Moon Caitlyn

A common sight on the bottom lane for over ten years no, this lunar twist to Caitlyn swaps her powerful shots out for cold projectiles that are sure to leave their mark. They contrast well against the battlefield, too, making them a little easier to spot amongst the rabble.

The Snow Moon Caitlyn skin arrives on June 23 2022. A chroma pack will also be available.

Snow Moon Illaoi

The unstoppable Illaoi's position on the top lane will be cemented by her hulking bell weight and ringing gong. Looking positively frosty, it'll be hard to miss her presence on the the rift with this ghostly customisation.

The Snow Moon Illaoi skin arrives on June 23 2022. A chroma pack will also be available.

Snow Moon Kayn

If there's anyone more deserving of a skin inspired by the moon, it's a fighter with a gargantuan scythe that wouldn't look out of place on the big space rock in the sky. The shirtless assassin could swing before, but now he's swinging in style.

Snow Moon Kayn skin arrives on June 23 2022. A chroma pack will also be available.

Aside from the added word that a Final Boss Viegar chroma pack is dropping as well, that's your lot for LoL 12.12. If one of those few Snow Moon skins doesn't whet your appetite, know that the Star Guardian game mode is coming back real soon after its first run a few years back. Generally what that means is a new wave of matching skins as well.

All bets are on for a Luna-styled skin for Yuumi to have the blessed cat match the Sailor Moon vibe of the full set, but you'll have to check back in with us over the following weeks to see just which new skins happen to make the cut.

Overall, though, LoL 12.12 is already proving to be a very interesting patch. It'll be great to see if it takes down Bel'veth's 52% winrate, but these things take time.
