League of Legends patch 9.12 change list

Looks like it’s “rework Ryze” time again

Riot Games

League of Legends patch 9.12 is here with all kinds of changes, and even a couple of reworks thrown on top.

With a full rework for Mordekaiser arriving in this patch, it’s clear that he’s the one with the biggest changes here. His new kit totally changes his theme, turning in him more into a vengeful spirit than the heavy-metal mage he used to be. He still has a few similarities, but now rather than bringing someone back to life to fight by his side with his ultimate Mordekaiser will now drag someone down to a spirit realm where he and his enemy will face off. If Mordekaiser wins, he’ll get to keep half of his enemies stats until that player respawns.

Also getting a slight rework this time around is Ryze. The shield on his Q and the root on his W are moving around a bit. His extra Q damage will now come from a passive on his ultimate that levels up as he upgrades the ability, and the root will now only work on targets that Ryze uses W on that are already effected by Flux.

Finally, this skin is bringing back the Dark Star skin line, and even giving one to Shaco, who hasn’t had a new skin in over four years.

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