League of Legends Patch 9.10 change list

The one with all the Battle Academia skins

Riot Games

It’s patch time for League of Legends, and 9.10 is coming in hot.

This one adds our first new champion in a bit, Yuumi the Magical Cat, and makes the usual changes to the meta. Hard hitting champs like Master Yi, Riven, and Vayne are seeing some changes. Soraka is also getting a few alterations to her changes last patch, to keep her moving in the direction Riot wants.

Patch 9.10 also has loads of new skins to choose from. The entire Battle Academia line will hit live servers at some point in the 9.10 cycle, with new skins for Ezreal, Lux, Jayce, Katarina, Graves, and Yuumi. Lux’s Battle Academia skin will also have a Prestige edition. Jayce, Graves, Yuumi, and Kataraina will have chromas at launch. We can likely expect some kind of event to go with these highly-anticipated skins.

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