Riot Games has provided an update on the massive item overhaul coming soon, sharing an early look at some of the Mythic Items coming to League of Legends ahead of Season 11.

Following each competitive season in League of Legends, Riot will use the preseason break to add any of the biggest changes they had planned throughout the year, while giving players time to adapt before the action kicks off again with the new year.

While the last preseason was focused on the Elemental drakes and Rift updates, Leagues of Legends’ eleventh season will feature some major item and shop changes, after Riot announced a full overhaul on August 8.

What are Mythic items in League of Legends?

Riot has now released a massive update for the upcoming changes, on September 9, sharing that a new class of items called “Mythic Items” would arrive in the preseason.

In the latest installment of Riot Pls, Jessica ‘Safelocked’ Nam explained that only one of these items could be purchased per game and that they would play a massive role in defining your playstyle.

“Mythic items are the cornerstones in your builds with big effects that define your playstyle from game to game,” she explained, “each Mythic also grants unique bonus stats to your other completed items.”

“You can only unlock one Mythic item at a time so you’ll have to make careful choices when deciding which one to build in-game.”

Riot dev Mark Yetter also revealed a closer look at some of these new items, sharing three unique Mythics for Marksman champions, each with their unique stats and passives.

How many Mythic Items will there be?

Yetter shared that not all of these new Mythic items will be brand new, revealing that some of the game’s current items could be upgraded into Mythic status with the upcoming changes.

The Riot dev later added that each class of champion should receive three or four Mythic Items each, but with many unique champions, there will be some who synergize better with these items than others.

He explained that Riot were hoping to have “at least 2 Mythics as viable options” for each champion and that players would still have to make build decisions in-game.

It is worth noting that as it is still early on into the development of these new items, and many of these stats could be changed ahead of their full release which is expected after Worlds 2020. You can find the expected stats for each of these items down below.

Riot Games developer Mark ‘Scruffy’ Yetter has confirmed a fix for the unusual Umbral Glaive bug which stopped jungle plants from respawning in G2 Esports vs Suning’s group stage tiebreaker at Worlds 2020.

With only 8 teams remaining, the 2020 League of Legends World Championship is now moving into the bracket stage with quarterfinals kicking off on October 15, having delivered plenty of entertaining matches so far.

However, there was a bizarre bug that viewers noticed in one of the most exciting games of the tournament, the Group A tiebreaker between G2 Esports and Suning to decide the first seed.

Worlds 2020 viewers noticed a bizarre bug with Blast Cones and other jungle plants.

The third and final group stage game between these two dark horse teams was quite close, but as G2 were starting to outscale the LPL’s 3rd seed, top laner Chen ‘Bin’ Ze-Bin pulled off an impressive Teleport flank on Gangplank to seal the game.

Although Suning came out on top in the group stage match, League of Legends YouTuber Vandiril revealed a strange bug with the jungle plants, which would have provided G2 Esports with another way to navigate the final teamfight.

The Umbral Glaive lethality item was seemingly bugged during the Worlds 2020 patch and the LoL content creator explained that anyone with this item would completely stop jungle plants like the Blast Cone and Scryrer’s Bloom from respawning.

In G2 Esports’ case, the Blast Cone, which can be used to jump over walls, should have been available in their jungle for the final teamfight and could have given star players Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic and Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther a way to escape Bin’s Gangplank.

However, it now seems as if it will be fixed for the remainder of the tournament, after Riot developer Mark Yetter revealed that they had shipped out a micropatch which would also affect the upcoming Worlds 2020 games.

This unusual glitch sparked plenty of discussion online, with many fans claiming it could have cost G2 Esports the game and potentially an easier quarterfinal matchup, but it is not possible to say for sure.

Despite missing out on the first seed, G2 Esports have been quite confident about their chances against the LCK 3rd seed Gen.G, who they will play on October 18 for a chance to progress in the international event.
