League of Legends patch 11.24 ⁠and the last major balance update of Season 11 is finally here. This time around Riot is fixing several Season 12 preseason problems and adding a host of fan-voted Debonair skins to close out the season.


  • Season 11 ends with one last update
  • Camille, Conqueror rune headline final season changes
  • Fan-voted Debonair skins for Draven, Zed, more

Twelve months later, we’ve arrived at the end of the season.

Ranked grinds are done, preseason is well underway, and the end of the calendar year is flying up quickly. There’s one last hurrah for League of Legends in 2021, however, and that is the 11.24 update. Expect outliers ⁠— on both ends ⁠— to be buffed and nerfs, and all the new preseason changes to get tweaks.

“Preseason throws the meta in the air,” Riot Phlox explained, “so we’re just doing smaller balance changes… touching outliers, and following up on preseason changes.”

The new-look Debonair skins will also arrive this update.

On top of everything else, the blue essence emporium will also be open. Here’s all the details on the League of Legends patch 11.24 update, coming in two weeks.

When is League of Legends patch 11.24?

The last update of Season 11 will roll out a week later than usual, with a three-week cycle giving Riot’s preseason changes time to breathe. That means we should get the update on December 8, and will begin rolling out at 10am AEDT on the Oceanic servers, before a worldwide rollout across the rest of the day.

Here’s all the key LoL patch rollout times:

  • 3am PT (NA)
  • 5am GMT (EUW)
  • 3am CET (EUNE)
  • 8am KR (Korea)

Players can expect a few hours of downtime once patching begins.

Matchmaking and competitive queues across all League of Legends servers will be disabled three hours before the very last Season 11 patch is officially deployed.

What’s coming in LoL patch 11.24?

All LoL champion buffs & nerfs

True to Phlox’s words, the main focus of this patch appears to be “outliers.”

The biggest nerfs come to Camille, who has dominated Season 11. She boasts a 52.14% win rate off the back of a 9.81% play rate, and has been at the top of every League player’s nerfs-wishlist since mid-season. Only Graves — another possible nerfs candidate — comes close with his 51.5%/11.36% record in November.

Ivern will also be getting buffs, while Kled is getting “adjustments” this patch to bring him into line as a possible champion pick again.

Riot adds Debonair skins

The last patch of Season 11 will come with a whopping eight new skins, all of which will be expanding the classic League of Legends Debonair skin line.

The new “Debonair” releases turn each champion into suave party-going savants, complete with suits, formal gear, and champagne as far as the eye can see. The Debonair skin line originally lost a fan vote to Crime City, but the polls were so close that Riot Games decided to do both instead of leaving one out.

Here are the new Debonair skins:

  • Draven
  • LeBlanc
  • Leona
  • Malzahar
  • Master Yi
  • Zed
  • Brand
  • Brand Prestige Edition

Each Debonair skin is also expected to get between six and eight chromas, which will change up the League champs’ flair and style with colors & aesthetics.
