LoL Patch 12.4 : Renata Glasc
Renata Glasc, the latest champion is finally arriving in the game. She is the second champion of season 12.
Lore-wise, Renata is a member of the aristocracy in the polluted city of Zaun, where she runs Glasc Industries with the goal of “redefining beauty through cutting-edge technology” while bringing Chemtech to the masses.
In-game, she’s a support whose kit revolves around buffing her opponents with her arsenal of Chemtech gadgetry. She’s a spellcaster unlike any other, with a ‘mind-control’ element to her ultimate that turns enemies against themselves and a pseudo-revive on her W.
Riot has confirmed that Renata Glasc will be playable in League of Legends patch 12.4
LoL Patch 12.4 : New Skins
The patch is bringing some of the most-awaited skins, including the Arcane skin. Firelight Ekko skin was launched at the time of Arcane’s release. Arcane is Riot’s first Netflix series about LoL characters.
Moreover, the following skins will come along –
- Brave Phoenix Xayah Prestige Edition
Nerfs : Zeri and Top Smite
In the patch, Riot is nerfing Zeri and the Top Smite meta. Zeri’s kit will be significantly changed in almost every way in an attempt to shift her away from less traditional AP builds and toward a more crit-based marksman build.
Riot is nerfing the enchanter top lane strategy in Smite in two ways, with major changes to Objective Bounties and support items.
If a team has multiple support items, the objective bounty will now be halved, but the penalty for farming with a support item early will be increased.
Other meta picks, such as Qiyana, will be reworked, while less popular choices, such as Kalista, will be boosted. However, While Riot reconsiders their strategy, Master Yi changes are on hold.
To sum up, the patch will change many things. The nerfing of Zeri and the balance changes will be significant.
