League of Legends Patch 11.22 Balance Changes
In the past few months, we've seen plenty of updates released which have all been made to build up to Worlds 2021. But from 11.20 onwards, most patches have been fairly small. We may start to see some more significant updates as we're already starting to see Pre-season 2022 Changes mentioned by the team.
In fact, we already have some fairly extensive notes about League of Legends Patch 11.23 coming in Preseason 2022. That said, details about 11.22 are pretty thin on the ground.
For now, though, you'll find all changes confirmed for Patch 11.22, just below.
No Patch Notes are available on the PBE yet, but we do have a preview detailing the upcoming buffs and nerfs.
DEV NOTES: Goredrinker nerfs overshot a bit so we're adding a tad more power back into it. Riven and Red Kayn were hit unusually hard by the Gore nerfs and we don't expect them to recoup much power with these Gore buffs alone.
- Kayn (Rhaast)
- Maokai (Support)
