League of Legends Patch 11.18 Notes: All the Buffs, Nerfs, and Release Date

League of Legends patch 11.18 is going to buff 23 champions, nerf some meta ADCs, feature the new Pentakill III: Lost Chapter skins, and more.

As we are getting closer and closer to one of the most anticipated esports tournaments of the year, Worlds 2021, it is also the time of the year for Riot to preview some of their planned changes.

Previously, Riot Jag mentioned that for this year’s Worlds, they are splitting the changes into two patches — Worlds-A (Patch 11.18) and Worlds-B (Patch 11.19). While the Worlds-A (Patch 11.18) changes will be riskier, it will give pros some more time to adapt to the new meta. Patch 11.19 on the other hand will be more of balancing the new meta.

In part 1 of the Worlds patch, Riot is going to buff 23 champions including Draven, Fizz, Gangplank, Jinx, Kai’Sa, Karma, Kog’Maw (AP), Lillia (Jungle), Miss Fortune, Morgana, Qiyana, and others. Moreover, Soraka and Dr. Mundo are also getting some adjustments surrounding Grievous Wounds.

On the other hand, four ADC champions — Aphelios, Ashe, Kalista, and Varus will see some nerfs on the upcoming patch 11.18 along with Jayce, Lee Sin, Renekton, Thresh, and Trundle.

League of Legends’ Lead Game Designer Riot Jag has previewed the upcoming patch 11.18. And here’s everything you need to know about LoL patch 11.18 notes.
