League of Legends patch 9.5 change list

Kayle and Morgana’s updates are coming in hot

Riot Games

The sisters’ big updates are finally moving to live servers this patch. Kayle and Morgana’s reworks are coming!

Patch 9.5 is big for that reason alone, but there’s plenty of other gameplay changes in here, including a buff to Stormrazor after it got hit a little too hard, changes to Akali’s kit, and buffs to champions like Gangplank. (I mean, it’s hard to look like an important change when two champions are getting big upgrades this patch.)

This patch will also include the release of K/DA Ahri Prestige Edition, though the skin will only be obtainable through Prestige Points. The good news is that Arclight Brand is also dropping this patch, and you can buy him for normal RP.

ARURF is also sticking around for this patch and there are a bunch of balance changes to beef up some champions who weren’t doing too hot and tone down some that were tearing it up.

As usual, you can check out Riot’s full notes here and our tl;dr here.
