In the upcoming mid-season update, Riot will be reworking Youmuu’s Ghostblade into a mythic item.

Riot does a preseason update in League of Legends at the start of every year. It is an experimental time for the game, as the developers release all the newer addition and changes at once, and players can try them out. Additionally, the ranks are not saved during that time, so players can try out the new changes and items without any downsides.

Besides preseason, Riot also changes the game massively during the mid-season. During mid-season, Riot implements changes that were either supposed to come during preseason or caused by shifting meta after the season’s start.

Last year, we saw Riot implement the durability rework as the mid-season rework. On that patch, they increased the base health of all champions and tweaked the stats. Riot did that update because the game had a colossal damage problem up to that point. Essentially, every champion before that time was doing a high amount of damage. And the durability patch fixed that inherent problem.

And for this season, we will also see a similar mid-season update. A week ago, Riot revealed their plans for the game through a dev log. And on that video, they unveiled that a huge itemization change was coming.

These itemization changes include many mythic items being demoted to legendary and many legendary items being promoted to mythic. One such item is Youmuu’s Ghostblade. In the upcoming mid-season update, Youmuu’s will become a mythic item for the assassins, replacing Prowler’s Claw.
