With Patch 12.22 ushering us into the preseason before Season 13, it changed many aspects of the game that people were used to. Now that players have had a chance to try the changes out, Patch 12.23 is here to help better adjust some of the changes made.
Here are our picks for the five biggest changes in League of Legends Patch 12.23.
5 Biggest Changes in League of Legends Patch 12.23
1. ARAM Changes
ARAM is receiving many different changes, both gameplay wise and to its map. The map will feature more brushes and Hextech gates and while death timers will be longer, being able to use Hextech gates will get you and your team to the fight quicker than before.
2. New Skins
There will be seven new skins coming to League of Legends, including Diana's first ever legendary skin and Zilean's first skin in over 1,000 days. The Winterblessed skins will also feature a prestige skin for Warwick and it comes at the perfect time right before the holidays.
3. Tanks Are Getting Buffed
Many tanks are set to receive buffs in Patch 12.23, including Amumu and Zac. While this will enforce the tank meta that has slowly been building thanks to new tank items like Heartsteel, this is a welcomed addition when compared to the high damage and burst meta for many.
4. Various Nerfs
As is common with many League of Legends patches, Riot Games has been keeping an eye on champions that need a nerf. These nerfs will go live on Dec. 7 when the official patch drops and champions such as Yuumi and Shyvana will be slightly weakened to help keep the balance of the game.
5. Jungle Adjustments
With Patch 12.22 changing various aspects of the jungle role, it is no surprise that jungle would get adjusted during Patch 12.23. Various numbers are being tweaked such as jungle pets doing slightly less damage than before and leash ranges being adjusted. One particular jungle companion, the Mosstomper, is getting a slight nerf to the tenacity given as well.
