League of Legends patch 12.7 will feature massive Gwen & Wukong buffs, Zeri & Ryze nerf, Rengar’s follow-up adjustments, and much more.

After two small patches, Riot is back pushing big scale updates from League of Legends patch 12.7. According to Riot Games’ Associate Game Designer Riot TheTruexy, the upcoming patch will focus on not only soloq but also MSI 2022.

“As we ramp up to MSI, this patch focuses on shaking up the meta’s dominant picks and adding some new ones that we haven’t seen,” Riot TheTruexy said.

On patch 12.7, ten champions: Gwen, Pantheon, Yasuo, Yone, Wukong, Neeko, Gangplank, Kalista, Lillia, and Karthus, are scheduled to receive some buffs while recently mini-reworked Rengar is set to get to some follow-up adjustments.

Moreover, because of her high ban rates, Zeri will receive her fifth nerf since her release on patch 12.2. Ryze, Lee Sin, and Jayce will also be getting nerfs for their high presence in pro games. However, the shocking thing is that Ryze only has a 44% win rate soloq.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming LoL patch 12.7 notes.
