LoL Patch 12.6 Notes: New Changes, Release Date, and More

League of Legends patch 12.6 will feature massive Rengar changes, Tryndamere nerfs, introduce the new Treasure Hunter rune, and much more.

It’s only been two months since Season 12 came out, but Riot has already pushed some great mini-reworks like Ahri, Janna, and Master Yi. While Janna is doing reasonably well in the soloq, Ahri is having the time of her life as top players across all major regions are playing her in the pro games. Moreover, recently pushed Master Yi changes are also doing spectacularly well.

League of Legends patch 12.6 is just around the corner, and it seems Riot is releasing yet another mini-rework for the upcoming patch; this time, it is for Rengar. His passive is getting a massive overhaul, and his Q & E abilities are getting significant changes.

Moreover, Riot Games is replacing Ravenous Hunter with a new rune called Treasure Hunter on the upcoming patch. And not to mention Kassadin’s updated splash art, where he finally has his legs!

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming LoL patch 12.6 notes.
