League of Legends Patch 12.19 Notes: Buffs, Nerfs, and Release Date

League of Legends patch 12.19 will introduce the new Syndra rework, buff multiple off-meta champions, nerf Master Yi & Rek’Sai, feature new Spirit Blossom 2022 skins, and more.

After the Durability update, most of the patches released on League of Legends were focused on balancing the pro games — first Summer Split and later Worlds. However, now that the Worlds patch is live, Riot Games can finally concentrate on the soloq.

Unlike the previous patches, where most of the time, Riot only buffed underwhelming and nerfed overpowered champions, the upcoming patch 12.19 will be different — bringing in some fun off-meta builds and champions.

League of Legends Lead Designer Riot Phroxzon has shared the upcoming patch 12.19 changes. And according to Riot, patch 12.19 will center around buffing the weaker champions.

“A few changes to Off-Meta builds as well as some changes to various languishing champions,” Riot Phroxzon said. “Mostly not trying to overhaul the practice environment, but addressing a few clearly weak champions and some that are outliers.”

Fizz, Ryze, Udyr, Ekko, Jinx, Sona, and Nasus will receive some buffs along with some off-meta builds like Blitzcrank jungle. Moreover, as patch 12.19 will focus on weaker champions, only two champions: Master Yi & Rek’Sai, who are causing havoc in the soloq, will get nerfs.

League of Legends patch 12.19 will also include the long-anticipated Syndra rework, where she now has a new passive that can enhance her abilities.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming League of Legends patch 12.19.
