League of Legends Patch 8.3 change list

Lots of skins in this one.

Riot Games

Patch 8.3 is finally upon us which means it’s Swain time.

Swain’s highly anticipated rework is going to release, which means you’re going to see much more of that bird commander on the Rift. Also in this patch is Riot’s attempt at nerfing Zoe without completely making the champion unviable, as well as hits to Kog’Maw and Katarina.

All champion health has been rounded so that there’s no more ugly decimals, too, so now games all look a little more pretty number-wise.

We’re also finally getting the Sweetheart Xayah and Rakan skins, as well as the Lunar Revel skins. They’ve been on the Public Beta Environment for so long as we quietly waited for their live releases. We’re also getting some sweet emotes and chromas to help celebrate the holidays. We can definitely expect to see some special event missions pop up, though we’re not sure what they are just yet.

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