League of Legends patch 11.19 is going to introduce the new champion Vex, buff 15 champions, nerf some meta champions, feature the new Nightbringer and Dawnbringer skins, and more.

One of the most anticipated esports tournaments of the year, Worlds 2021, is just around the corner. As we are getting closer and closer, it is also the time of the year for Riot to share the details about the patch Worlds is going to be played on.

Last month, Riot Jag mentioned that for this year’s Worlds patch, they are splitting the changes into two different patches — Worlds-A (Patch 11.18) and Worlds-B (Patch 11.19). While Worlds-A was all about pushing riskier changes, Worlds-B patch is about balancing the pro-targeted changes.

Now, for patch 11.19, Riot is going to buff 15 champions including Aatrox, Akali, Cho’Gath, Fizz, Galio, Gragas, Gwen, Mordekaiser, Poppy, Qiyana, Renekton, Sejuani, Seraphine, Sion, and Sylas.

On the other hand, two soloq dominant champions Sona and Soraka are getting nerfs along with pro-targeted Ryze, Kennen, and Varus.

After many speculations and teasers, League of Legends’ 157th champion — Vex is also set to make her debut on patch 11.19.

League of Legends’ Lead Game Designer Riot Jag has previewed the upcoming patch 11.19. And here’s everything you need to know about LoL patch 11.19 notes.
