League of Legends Patch 11.7 plans to bring some small balance changes that may not force an immediate impact but will possibly shake up the meta later on down the line. League of Legends gameplay designer pointed to the surplus of improvements to Yorick, stating that the champion was "overdue for some of this work for sure."

Here's a rundown of what players can expect on March 31 when the patch goes live.

League of Legends Patch 11.7 Preview

In Patch 11.7 we don't see as many item changes as the previous patches that came in season 11. Most notably there will be a nerf to Everfrost decreasing the active damage and increasing its cooldown. As one of the most commonly used Mythic items this change won't be discouraging anyone from purchasing it due to the value of its stats but players will be much more conservative with their use of the active.

Patch 11.7 did bring a lot of character changes. Outside of the Riot rebuild project trying to bring dead champions like Yorick back to prominence the thing that really stands out in this patch are the champion nerfs. Outside of Ivern all of these champions have some of the highest pick rates for their respective roles in pro competition. This might encourage new champion picks on the pro stage and may be a chance for fans to see insane plays that they never thought imaginable.

Everyone will finally have a chance to purchase the long anticipated Space Groove skins once the patch goes live. Lulu, Lux, Nasus, Nunu & Willump, Rumble, and Samira SG skins will all be purchasable for 1,350 RP while the Blitzcrank skin will be 1,820 RP.
