League of Legends patch 7.2 change list

New Warwick, jungle tweaks and more!

Riot Games

After a few weeks of Patch 7.1, including our first glance of high-level pro play in the new season meta, Riot’s bi-weekly patch for League of Legends arrives for Patch 7.2. This patch includes the release of updated Warwick, as well as nerfs to some overperforming laners, even further tweaks to the jungle and a buff to lethality that should see the return of some of the forgotten reworked assassins in the mid lane.

Below are just the changes: if you want more context, read the full patch notes here. For just a summary of the five most important things, click here.
