League of Legends patch 11.9 notes – DWG, Conqueror skins, Hecarim nerfs

Spring is in full swing, League of Legends fans, and a new patch is rolling in. League of Legends patch 11.8 has left the PBE to make its debut on the live Rift, with new champion Gwen, a raft of balance changes, and new Dragonslayer and Blackfrost skins in tow. Now, it’s 11.9’s turn for a round of testing, so let’s see what’s coming.

First up, those Damwon Gaming/DWG Worlds skins Riot unveiled on social media have now hit the testing grounds, which means all-new looks for Jhin, Kennen, Leona, Nidalee, and Twisted Fate inspired by the winning team. The skin line for the five lucky League of Legends champions has a fantasy warrior aesthetic with icy blue and silver colours, and looks pretty striking. Oh, and we’ve got two new Conqueror skins on the way for Jax, too – a regular and prestige edition. You can check all these out in the champion skins section below.

As is usual when a new patch hits the PBE, there aren’t many balance changes up for testing just yet, other than some nerfs coming up for diver champ Hecarim, which you can see below. But, be sure to keep checking back over the fortnight as we’ll keep it updated with everything getting buffed, nerfed, and tweaked in the coming patch in the balance changes section below.

Anyway, that’s enough from us – on with the show. Here are the tentative League of Legends patch 11.9 notes based on what’s getting tested on the PBE right now (cheers, Surrenderat20!).
