LoL Patch 12.3 Notes: New Changes, Release Date, and More

League of Legends patch 12.3 will nerf Zeri & Corki, feature Ahri’s rework, introduce multiple adjustments, and more.

There might only be a handful of changes in League of Legends season 12, but most of them are playing a crucial part in the current meta. The Teleport change has reshaped how the game is played — mainly in the pro games, and the objective bounties are in a somewhat good spot after all the nerfs.

However, the Chemtech Drake turned out to be so “broken” that Riot had to disable it in League of Legends until further notice.

League of Legends’ Designer on the Summoner’s Rift team, Riot Phlox, has now revealed the upcoming patch 12.3 changes. And it seems twelve items are getting adjustments, including Turbo Chemtank, Goredrinker, Maw of Malmortius, Trinity Force, and more.

Moreover, Riot is also nerfing dominant champions like Zeri, Senna, Caitlyn, Amumu, Corki, Twisted Fate, LeBlanc, and Janna.

Three champions: Lillia, Brand, and Quinn, are also scheduled to receive buffs on patch 12.3.

“Pretty interesting patch coming your way,” Riot Phlox on patch 12.3. “We’re adjusting the fighter system to be less health skewed.”
