League of Legends patch 12.14 notes: Healing changes, more Sivir & Zeri nerfs

Yuumi from league of legendsRiot Games

League of Legends patch 12.14 is here, and Riot is promising it as their “last set of major changes sans Worlds balance”. Zeri is being nerfed (again), while Riot is aiming to shake up the jungle meta with Pantheon and Qiyana as well as the dominance of enchanter supports: here are the patch notes.

We’re now more than halfway through Season 12, and Riot has informed players to not expect much from balancing updates post-LoL patch 12.14. There’ll still be small updates ⁠— no less before Worlds ⁠— but all eyes are turning towards major preseason changes.

That means there’s a lot to get out of the way in this update. Gangplank’s long-awaited changes? Check. A total overhaul to Dragon priority? Yes. More Zeri nerfs? Of course ⁠— it’s Season 12.

With enchanter supports also dominating the meta with the highest win rates among its class, Riot are taking a broad approach to healing itemization as well as extra nerfs to three champions in Janna, Renata Glasc, and Yuumi.

All that and more has been bundled into LoL patch 12.14, so check out the full notes below.

What’s changed in LoL patch 12.14?

Riot overhauls healing with big enchanter nerfs

It may seem like an eternity ago ⁠— almost two months now ⁠— but players are still feeling the effects of League of Legends’ durability update. Riot have promised small updates since buffing every champion’s tankiness, and LoL patch 12.14 is set to deliver on a healing overhaul.

When champions have more innate defenses, heals and shields become even more powerful to drag fights out for longer. This has led to games stalling out much longer than anything in recent history (although not quite Season 6 levels).

The next update will nerf almost every aspect of healing, from health potions to sustain runes and individual champions’ heals and shields. Yuumi is the main champion being targeted as well as items like Forbidden Idol, with Riot trying to tone back the enchanter meta in support.

Sivir and Zeri once again targeted

Zeri seemingly can’t keep herself out of the League of Legends patch notes. LoL patch 12.14 is no different with the Spark of Zaun receiving her 12th set of changes since her release. The developers are removing the bonus damage on her right-click and transforming it into an execute at a lower threshold. Her on-hit damage, to compensate, is being tanked.

The same can be said for Sivir, who has already faced one nerf since her LoL patch 12.13 mid-scope update. The Shuriman marksman landed much too strong for Riot’s liking, and another toning down to her wave clear is in the works with nerfs to her W, Ricochet.

Gnar, Renata Glasc, and Yuumi are also primed for nerfs. Alistar, Pantheon, and the iconic scout himself Teemo headline the buffs list for LoL patch 12.14.

More Star Guardian skins as event continues

The Star Guardian story event is still going on, and Riot are adding some new faces into the Valoran City force to try and fight back against Zoe.

Five new Star Guardians are being added to the roster:

  • Star Guardian Akali
  • Star Guardian Quinn
  • Star Guardian Rell
  • Star Guardian Syndra Prestige Edition
  • Star Guardian Taliyah

The evil forces are also getting some reinforcements with Star Nemesis Morgana joining up with Fiddlesticks as the new antagonists in this rendition of Star Guardian.

Each of the new skins will get nine Chromas a piece, while legacy skin Star Guardian Jinx will be getting a special Mythic chroma as part of LoL patch 12.14.
