It’s been two weeks, so it’s time for the newest League of Legends patch! This one’s a little more anticipated as usual, as it comes with the release of the updated Galio. For a refresher, here’s a look at his new kit. We’ll have a full how-to guide with suggested builds and strategies some time over the next few days.
Galio’s not the only new addition to this patch -- there’s some more tinkering to Aatrox, continued adjustments to the AD Carry position and more.
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.
