League of Legends patch 8.20 change list

Ezreal’s got a brand new W and some dope new splash arts

Riot Games

The first patch during Worlds is always bound to be a little lighter and this year is no exception. With just a few patches left in the year before preseason, Riot is slowing things down on season 8 and not making any drastic changes.

The biggest adjustment this week is coming for Ezreal, who is getting the softest rework of all time. As in, one ability is getting changes and he has some new splash art. Thankfully, The ability that’s getting changed is his W, which wasn’t really up to the caliber of the rest of his kit anyway and should be a whole lot more exciting after the adjustment.

Other than that, Riot is mostly focusing patch 8.20 on getting champions into comfortable places as we approach the pre-season. Ahri got a slight buff to her ultimate, Evelynn and Nami got a tuning pass while Graves and Sion had a couple base stats adjusted slightly.

Even if there aren’t too many changes this week, there are some very solid skins coming up including Dragon Trainer Heimerdinger and Infernal Amumu.

If you want a full look at Riot’s notes you can check them out, or for a shorter version you can look at our TL;DR.
