Riot introduces massive Life Element updates in League of Legends patch 11.6 preview

Must read


With the next one League of Legends updating just around the corner, Riot Games is slowly rolling out some interim changes to the PBE server to test some of the updates they want to introduce.

League of Legends meta changed with item system overhaul in patch 10.23 and the introduction of Mythical sets. It now prioritizes champions who use the items provided with passive omnivamp and life steal.

Self-healing has become a major concern in MOBA. With the number of buffs Grievous Wounds got in the latest updates, enchanting supports have become totally unnecessary.

League of Legends fans have called nerves to the elements that come with a lot of self-healing, and it looks like Riot is finally ready to meet those demands.

In a recent tweet, League of Legends Game Design Director Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has previewed the patch for version 11.6. He highlighted some of the interim item changes that could come in the next update.

Sterak’s Gage Rune, Blade of the Ruined King, and Ravenous Hunter Rune will receive the Nerf Hammer this time around. Meanwhile, Luden’s Tempest and Rabbadon’s Deathcap will be shown some well-deserved love.
