League of Legends patch 11.14 notes are here with all of the new changes coming in the July 8 update, including a leg up for the new Dr Mundo and Tahm Kench reworks, buffs for eight lucky champions, seven new Ruination skins, and plenty more.
- Irelia, Lillia adjusted to help pro play presence
- Dr. Mundo, Tahm Kench need leg up after LoL reworks flop
- Ruination event continues with Ruined, Sentinel skins
Riot is focused on “lifting” poor-performing champs this update.
The plan this cycle, Sidhu said, is to “respond to some champions that were hit a bit too hard by systemic changes [in LoL patch 11.13 last week], as well as shifting power for some of the newly updated champions” in the next patch.
That includes buffs for several popular characters, including Graves, Darius, Garen, and controversial spellcaster Seraphine. Dr. Mundo — who was just reworked — as well as Irelia, Lillia, and Tahm Kench are all in line for changes in the new update too, with a focus on how they are being played across several roles.
The Ruination event continues next week too, with seven champions getting “ruined” or “sentinel” skins as part of the Riot Games-wide storyline.
Here’s all the details on League of Legends patch 11.14, dropping this week.
What’s coming in League of Legends patch 11.14?
Rush to save struggling Lillia
Riot is planning to give Lillia a huge set of buffs after the League of Legends jungler continues to fall out of favor. The changes may even push the Bashful Bloom out of the jungle and into solo lanes as a melee AP hyper carry.
Lillia has lost her way in League of Legends. Despite being popular on release, the Bashful Bloom has fallen out of favor with the majority of players.
To alleviate her problems, Riot are looking at a drastic shake-up that could push Lillia out of the jungle, and into solo lanes. Game designer Daniel ‘Maxw3ll’ Emmons explained: “[Our] general goal is to reduce pro binding and increase solo queue win rate by increasing durability and scaling but lowering early game clear power.”
The changes will touch basically every part of her kit, including her base stats, iconic Q ability, and her ability power scalings.
Irelia gets early power taken away
Irelia has been one of League’s biggest early game threats since her rework. However, Riot is changing that in LoL patch 11.14 update: the Ionian warrior is getting a hefty nerf to her early game power, with a trade-off meaning she’s better late.
The changes, according to developer ‘Phlox,’ will give Irelia’s W “an actual powerful use case,” instead of just being a damage negator. It comes at the cost of the rest of her kit, which is facing significant early game nerfs.
All of these patch 11.14 changes look to shift her early game power towards the late game, where Irelia is now being buffed quite considerably.
New “Ruination” skins
Riot Games are shipping seven new Ruination skins in LoL patch 11.14, including two variants — “Ruined” and “Ascended” — for Pantheon.
This update’s skin releases are all tied into LoL’s overarching Season 11 story. Viego has possessed disciples across Runeterra (the Ruined) and the region’s defenders (Sentinels) have been tasked with stopping the League of Legends big bad. Dexerto expects we’ll see similar skins across the next few updates.
Here’s all the champs getting Ruination skins:
- Pantheon (Ruined) — 1,350 RP
- Pantheon (Ascended) — 2,000 Event Tokens
- Diana (Sentinel) — 1,350 RP
- Irelia (Sentinel) — 1,350 RP
- Olaf (Sentinel) — 1,350 RP
- Riven (Sentinel) — 1,350 RP
- Vanye (Sentinel) — 1,820 RP
Each new Ruination skin will get at least nine chromas, except Vayne; so far only six have leaked for the Night Hunter’s new Legendary cosmetic upgrade.

LoL patch 11.14 skins
The Mist did not just subsume Atreus, but also resurrected the long-dead spirit of Pantheon: the old Aspect of War himself. With Atreus’ stubborn defiance silenced, Pantheon can resume control and revel in battle once again. It doesn’t matter to him whose banner he fights under. If that banner is the Ruined King’s? So be it.
Ascended Pantheon Prestige Edition
Atreus defeated Pantheon once, and with all of Runeterra on the line he must defeat him once more. Seizing back control from the Aspect of War, Atreus harnesses the celestial power of Targon itself– briefly becoming not just a vessel or an Aspect, but something new. Something immensely powerful and entirely his own.
The Ruination of Targon and the loss of the Aspect of War devastated the Rakkor tribes. But the only way to fight an Aspect’s power is with another Aspect– and so Diana takes up her blade as a member of the Sentinels, knowing that Viego would destroy everything the moonlight touches.
After the fall of the Ionian Grand Temple, Irelia could not stand idly by while her home was ravaged by the Black Mist. Deputized by the Sentinels, she fights the Ruination as one of their comrades: a natural-born leader who understands the threat that Ruined Karma poses, she will stop at nothing to save the Spirit of Ionia.
After a vicious encounter on the Freljordian front, Olaf is convinced to join the Sentinels to satiate his hunger for battle. Only then would he have the power to challenge Viego, the greatest threat the world has ever known, and satisfy his urge to fearlessly face death in glorious combat.
Riven joins the Sentinels hoping to atone for her role in the Noxian invasion of Ionia. After fighting her way out of a rapidly destabilizing Noxus Prime, she understands that her time may be fleeting. However, she believes her life is a small price to pay to make amends.
Ever striving to become a better monster hunter, Vayne joins the Sentinels primarily to advance her own arsenal and learn from their battle with the Black Mist. It doesn’t hurt that she is also defending Runeterra from evil, of course. If she must endure the friendship of a fool like Graves to do so, she will. The cause is worth it.
