LoL Patch 12.5 Notes: New Changes, Release Date, and More

League of Legends patch 12.5 will feature massive Master Yi changes, introduce the Bee 2022 skins, and much more.

It’s only been a month since Season 12 came out, but it already has a handful of game-changing updates. The introduction of Teleport rework reshaped how the early game is now played, and it also brought back the “controversial” enchanters playing solo lane — though it is now nerfed.

Besides, in just four patches, Riot also released two new champions and Ahri & Janna’s mini-rework.

League of Legends patch 12.5 is just around the corner, and it seems Riot is releasing yet another mini-rework for the upcoming patch. And this time, it is for Master Yi. Moreover, Elise is also getting a massive VFX update.

“A bit of a smaller patch because of President’s day etc.” Riot Phlox said.

On the upcoming patch, Ahri, Gwen, and Xin Zhao are getting nerfs along with one of the most talked-about items, Ranged Hullbreaker. Moreover, Samira, Kennen, and Seraphine are also set to receive buffs.

And here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming LoL patch 12.5 notes.
