League of Legends Official Patch 10.12 Notes: Akali Gets Buffed, Varus Gets Nerfed and More Balance Changes Go Live on June 10

The new patch in League of Legends is scheduled to go live on June 10. With Patch 10.12, we get to see some buffs to champions that really needed it, like Akali, Brand, Viktor and Xayah. Meanwhile, Trundle and Varus will see some nerfs, but will mostly affect players at the competitive level.

We’ve also seen some changes to Runes and the Ghost summoner spell coming with patch 10.12. Riot has posted all the details regarding balance changes, but also the new skins, chromas and more in their full patch notes at this link. If you are interested in learning which are the new buffs and nerfs to champions and the balance changes to runes, we’ve got you covered.
