League of Legends Patch 7.19 change list

Ardent Censer and Janna nerfs, finally!

Riot Games

We’re finally done with Worlds patches for now, so now we’re back to balancing things for us normies (and Challenger solo queue players).

In this patch, Azir and Xin Zhao finally get their little mini-updates, so you’re definitely going to want to make sure you understand those changes before you jump into game.

Janna and Ardent Censer, a champion and item that have been bullying the Rift for way too long, have also finally gotten nerfs. Whether or not the small spanking Ardent Censer got will be enough is something we’re going to have to see ourselves.

Vayne is also seeing some massive improvements to her kit, including an addition to her ultimate time when somebody she has damaged in the last three seconds dies. So, yes, Vayne is getting a reset mechanic. Oh, no.

The much desired Arclight Yorick and Beekeeper Singed skins will also be dropped this patch. The Immortal Journey skins will be released this patch as well!

And if you came here to look for Evelynn: no, she is going to be in Patch 7.20. Not this one.

As usual, you can check out Riot’s full notes here and our condensed version here.
